“A hobby a day keeps the doldrums away.” – Phyllis Mcginley
For your information:
doldrum – n. “a state or period of inactivity, stagnation, or depression” (- taken from Google)
(^Not being arrogant or anything; this is more for me than you because I wasn’t sure of the exact definition.)
Oh yes. YES.
This statement can’t be more true. I’m rarely bored. Between (catching up on) schoolwork, Ameba, dramas, anime/manga, blogging, photo-editing and reading I really don’t have a lot of spare time. When I do, it’s definitely because I’ve been neglecting something, usually schoolwork because out of all those hobbies, schoolwork is definitely the driest and most boring and I’m sure that many students out there would agree with me.
But hobbies don’t just take away the boredom, they brighten up your life. Yes, blogging gets painful sometimes, especially on days like today when I completely forget that I’m supposed to be doing a quote challenge and I suddenly remember 10 minutes before the end of the day and I just slam on my life brakes and come here. But there are days when I feel like there’s no one I can talk to about certain things and so I just come here and rant.
And then sometimes I just find something random and silly but might be too scared or embarrassed to tell my friends…where do I post them? Here.
Your hobbies may just turn out to be simply a hobby, but to me, blogging is way of life and while there are times when I’ll be inactive for one or two weeks, I’ll definitely be thinking about my blog.
What should I post about next? Should I upload the pictures to photobucket or just go lazy and upload them to WordPress? Should I schedule posts so I don’t look lazy?
Aw, secret revealed. (Yeah, sometimes life gets too hard and I write posts ahead of time. I don’t exactly want to spam your inbox with multiple posts in a day, yeah?)
