Bank Holiday Boredom

I had thought of going somewhere today, but the weather put me off. Plus I was still a bit tired and my knee was flickering with pain again, so I ended up staying in. Maybe there was something good on TV, like an old film or something? Turned out the TV schedule was pretty much the same as on any other day. Somehow I had thought that Homes Under The Hammer and Judge Rinder would get a day off too. How foolish of me.

And so my day ended up messing with Miitomo, scrolling Twitter and making random scribbles into a notebook, which made me feel better for a bit but aren’t really anything that I would want to read back. This writers block and generally feeling uninspired isn’t going to shift any time soon, but I am trying to work my way through it.

This blog post came out of boredom.

And that is rather dangerous. Because when you blog when you’re bored, it tends to be about either nothing in particular or about a whole load of things but it’s all a bit scrappy and you end up deleting it later because you know you can write better than this.

But then again, you are glad that you posted this because there’s a load of things that you’re trying to get out of your system and if you’re going to put them anywhere it may as well be here. However, a punchbag would also be useful in times like these. Hang on, I have a couple of stressballs, they’ll do.

I know there’s something more constructive that I could be doing, but I can’t remember what it is. I know that there’s a whole load more interesting things I could be putting here, but I’ve run out of ideas and lack the motivation to find any. And yet I am motivated to type stuff, however dull or pointless it might be. Maybe I’ll find something among all this.

On leave.

So I am currently on holiday at the moment. I’ve got two weeks off – well, two weeks and a day. I’m off now because like everyone, I need a break from work, but also I have to take them by the end of March otherwise I’ll lose them and there’s far too many left for me to just throw away.

Before you ask, I have no plans to go away anywhere, except for just the odd day trip here and there. I’ve not really done much the last few days, except chill out, try and get past the Radical Highway level on Sonic Generations and help my parents out with stuff. My dad hasn’t been well the last couple of days, so I’ve been looking after him while my mum’s been at work. To be honest, it’s just been nice just being at home, sitting around with nothing incredibly urgent and important to do. My only gripe is that my body still wants to wake me up at 7:20am. Even on annual leave I can’t get a proper lie-in, what the hell’s up with that?!

I also thought that while I was off, I might be able to do a bit more writing, maybe take some photos or even videos but I’ll have to wait and see with that one. In any case, I might be waffling on here a bit more often than normal. I apologise in advance if any of it is so obviously done of boredom.
