When you want to write, it's like everything falls into place until you actually sit down to do so. Then like a snow globe, all the ideas you had in mind kick up into a blizzard and you can't grasp a single one.
Well with ADD it's like that. Especially when your medicine's wearing off.
So, to get things settled again, what shall I write about? Oh, I see... Why don't I write about what compelled me to write this blog in the first place? That's pretty interesting and unlike my ADD, it'll get us somewhere.
To get things started, let's take a look at where I've written in the past and why I've chosen to write here. Unexplained Mysteries isn't the first outlet I've used for writing. The earliest website where I picked up a knack for writing was Reddit, I believe. My writing here wasn't used for anything insightful or personal, and was mainly for immature stories which I could lose a future girlfriend over. Last summer I did try to start a LiveJournal, particularly about my experiences at my summer job. That idea quickly withered though, because I soon realized how boring my job was and how at the end of the day, I didn't feel like talking about it. This year, except my activities at UM, my writing hobby has consisted of nothing but a few horrendously bad poems that lay dormant on my desktop. Maybe one day I'll finish and edit them, but for now I'll just think about doing it instead.
Okay, now fast forward to the present. Well, after a few weeks of dispute, I finally decided to cut ties with a best friend of mine. I won't go into details because it's all nitty-gritty and I'm hoping that we can smooth out our friendship in the near future. For the time being, to compensate for a lack of social life, I am revisiting my own hobbies and interests. I tried my hand at poetry and those that I showed it to enjoyed it quite a bit. I'm also gonna start volunteering soon since I've got nothing better to do. I hope that I keep this writing hobby going since it's the only thing I feel good at.
Other from that, I just got back from taking a six hour brake. Well anyways, I hope to use this blog in the future to discuss ideas and poems rather than use it as an outlet for negativity. I'm excited to see how it turns out in the future and I hope you all come along for the ride.
