The need for another preoccupation

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

That which for several months had been the overriding passion of my life is now completed. I need another preoccupation or, as some would prefer to think, a new obsession that deserves my prolonged attention: anything that would divert my mind from this ruminating--and oftentimes self-mutilating—habit. It is disheartening to admit that as we develop a deeper appreciation for the world around us the more we are compelled to look for distractions to keep life’s horrors at bay.

It is rightly said that an empty mine is a devils workshop!! We must keep ourselves busy or occupied with something or else human brain just rusts...
Hope you are having a fabulous day Angeli:)

I'm overwhelmed by different species of tasks, but I'm still looking for that 'something' -- remains undefined.

@kayni: you're going back to school? wow. i thought of that too but the idea of several years of 'pagsusunog ng kilay' makes me a bit faint. hahaha

@arti: i keep myself busy by reading one book after another.

@wits: i noticed that you've been really busy. you've been missed. :)

i want to think of myself busy but i'm bored of what i'm supposed to be busying myself with. hard to define this state, parang marami kang dapat o gustong gawin kaso walang motibasyon na gawin.. i'm also in need of a new preoccupation, something that excites, haha..
