Apologies

Okay the above picture has nothing to do with anything, I just liked the colours and have always had a fascination for that old TV thing. I apologize for the absence of posts, I know some of you can’t live without reading my thoughts. Haha. Everything has just been so … there’s really no other word for it, hectic, lately. I’ve been going to bed at close to 6 am, having to wake up at 9 most days, being a zombie till about 2 pm then I go to work, come home around 7, eat dinner, try to kick-start my league career by practicing with my friends and by the time that’s all done, it’s about 11 to 12. I’ve been very emotionally drained lately, and mustering enough feeling to write a post just hasn’t been in me. I don’t want to write posts just because I have a blog with some readers, I want to write posts that I find meaningful, as well as an enjoyable read for my faithful fans. To be able to do this requires time, a bit of patience, soul searching and transforming feeling into written word, a process which takes an unexpectedly heavy toll mentally as well as emotionally. To those who still check religiously, thank you, I appreciate your interest in my writing 🙂

Past, Present and Future

Have you guys seen “The Lovely Bones”? I actually saw the film before reading the book, mainly because everyone thought the film was not so great and raved about the book. This is basically the truth. I felt that the film itself dragged on a bit too long, and while it was visually stunning and immersive, it just didn’t pack as much punch or captivate me as much as the book did. The thing I liked about the film though, was that there was a bit of a redemptive factor at the end. The book didn’t have this, from memory. But then again, I read the book a very long time ago and I could just be misremembering and failing to recall certain details.

Anyway, this post is not supposed to be about “The Lovely Bones”, I just had to talk about it a little seeing as I’m borrowing a quote from there. It’s actually 1:48 AM at the time of me writing this, and as per usual I can’t sleep. I keep thinking about the future. Well, mostly my past too, and what I could’ve done differently and where I would be right now had I done certain things a particular way. It’s rough, thinking about this late in the night time. If you ever find yourself doing this, don’t pay attention to it. You are your own worst enemy at these hours.

Mind-Reading

I’m going to do a bit of mind reading right now. I bet when you first read the title of this post, you thought Criss Angel Mindfreak? No? Maybe The Mentalist with awesome Patrick Jane? Still no? How about just your average, run-of-the-mill psychics you find at malls? Fine, I can’t read minds. I wish I could. It would open up a hell of a lot of possibilities, some good, some bad. It would be extremely frightening, not to mention dangerous, to have the power to read minds. I mean it wouldn’t be so bad if you could control when and who’s mind you want to read. Would you really want to know what everyone is thinking at any given point in time? I don’t think I would. But the real question though is, would you want to be able to really read minds like a superpower, or just be extremely adept at cold-reading and observing people’s behaviour?
