Apparently I’m a pretty typical Scorpio

I have loads of stuff to do, some of which is even time sensitive! so I really shouldn’t even be thinking about blogging right now. That’s not stopping me though, no siree!

Instead of cleaning, like I should be, I’ve been reading about zodiac signs, particularly my own (Scorpio). There are a lot of stereotypes out there about Scorpios, and just as many people complaining that they aren’t accurate. I can’t speak for everyone, or even many-one, but I can say that most of what I’m describing fits me almost perfectly.

Oh yeah, definitely burnt out

Since before the start of this semester, I’ve been feeling listless. I was grinding along in my job and grinding along with my family, just doing what I had to to keep it all going, but none of it really felt meaningful or even particularly enjoyable. That didn’t actually improve any with the start of this semester. As a matter of fact, it just got worst because, as I’ve mentioned before, my family has increased their demands on my time since then. Nothing actually changed with their overall life situation, they just decided I need to give them more of my time.

This is more or less how it’s gone throughout my time at university. I try to focus on my classes, they keep trying to drag me down, I scrape by and keep my grades up, repeat. I put up with it because they help with the financial aspect of things, but it’s getting ridiculous now. I barely have time to do my assignments these days, which is one of the reasons I quit my job of two years earlier this semester. (I was planning to quit anyway, but would have done so later instead)

Now finals are just around the corner, I’m behind on several assignments (including a term paper), and I have no idea how I’m going to manage this time. The only good thing about the situation is that it shouldn’t happen again (at least now quite like this), since I only have two non-full-time semesters left before finishing my degree.

Through it all the only real escape I’ve had is a small study group I’m involved in which provides an acceptable excuse to get away from my family for a while. Participating in the group hasn’t been as helpful for my grades as I’d like, but I’m not doing it for that reason anyway. No, the real reasons are as I said above (to get time away from my family) and because my contributions to the group seem to actually be helpful.

Even so, it’s a bit too much now. I haven’t had a break in over two years and it’s finally caught up with me. Even these posts are starting to wear me down. This is something like the fourth post I’ve made saying basically the same thing, and I’d really like to stop the repeats sometime soon. Even if things don’t change in an appreciable way, I’d like to adjust my outlook between now and my next life-related post.

I used to be different. In between my time as a NEET and now, I was efficient and cold. I (truly) didn’t care about anything and would just work like a machine to achieve my goals. Or at least, the goals set before me. I miss that. Somewhere along the way (actually I know the exact date, but if I say it it may give someone the wrong idea), I started to think I could get more from life. While that’s probably true, it looks like it’ll have to be later on rather than right away. Thus, I’ve got to find my way back to the almost mechanical mindset I used to have. The particulars of my situation weren’t much different back then, but I was less unhappy and right now that’s all I want.


Most likely I’ll not make many life-related posts for the foreseeable future, so any of you who care probably won’t get any updates for a while. I should still post on a semi-regular basis (~1/week), but for the most part it’ll be about my other interests instead of endlessly going on about my frustrations in life.

See you later, and have a good weekend!

Changing it up again! Also I’m burnt out

Hey all! First off is something you may have already noticed: all the names of the weeklies have changed. Again. I’m dropping the day-by-day format (though I’m not editing the ones which I did before), since my days aren’t that interesting. I’ll be going to a format similar to what I started with, where I just post conversationally about what’s going on with me. Like I am now, actually.

My week has been shockingly unproductive, given that I’ve got more time than I’ve had for the last several months. It’s not a nice feeling. Additionally, and relatedly, I’ve had excessive demands placed on my time for frivolous purposes. On the upside, I’ve actually been doing pretty well at university, so that’s something. Details inside.

Have some Tay Tay. (Or don’t, not my problem)

Absolute freedom!

Another week, another summary. You know what’s up, just enjoying the bliss of being free! There’s a birthday coming up in my family though, so I’m looking forward to the inevitable confrontations that will bring.

Also, I’ll probably stop putting these up on Friday and just do them on Sunday night or Monday morning when all day entries have already been done.

Song time! (I have no particular reason I picked this one, I just thought it’d be fun)

State of my Head

Hello friends, strangers, and other assorted persons and entities who can read! It’s been a weird couple of weeks for me, and I just wanted to talk about where my head is in a more general way than my weekly updates do.

Also: Yes, that is a song reference in the title. No, I won’t be posting an embed of the song.

Aftermath

Yeah so I’m changing up the format a little. Well, I’m actually just changing the way I’m going to note things. Before, I just used a line to separate different topics, now I’m going to separate by day of the week instead. So Mo for Monday, Tu for Tuesday, etc. The actual topics may not be as clearly distinguished as before, but I was barely doing that anyway, so you might not notice the difference. 😛

Yep so that’s over! I’ve gone back to a format similar to the initial one. so just ignore the above. 😛

Also, for context: I have classes on Mondays and Wednesdays, so those entries will mainly concern coursework.

Z Nation vs The Walking Dead

Eh? I’m late to this party and should have talked about it over three years ago when Z Nation first started? Heh, maybe true, but whatever. I’m here now and I’m doing it today.

Oh yeah, SPOILER ALERT.

I’m not going to bury the lead this time: I prefer Z Nation to The Walking Dead. Unpopular opinion? Perhaps. I suspect, however, that it’s less unpopular than it was one year ago, or two, or three. Ratings for The Walking Dead have been falling steadily, and the plot has spent the last few seasons perfecting the art of filling a whole broadcast hour without actually moving forward. Seems to me, The Walking Dead is starting to lose steam.

Below, I’m going to compare the shows in a few different areas. I’ll try to be fair, but we both already know what the end result is going to be. I still watch them both, so I would like to see TWD recover, but in the meantime…well, read on.
