Ah, remember the days when I used to post every little thing about my life? Back when my LJ was exactly what I wanted it to be: a chronicle of events in my life, a vertible online Jenn-scrapbook? I’ve posted 12 times total in August, now, and it looks like 4 of those were actual notes and not movie lists or links.
It’s not even that I’m having a particularly dull little life. I’ve been out and doing more recently than I have in a long while. But I also have whole evenings at home where I don’t do much — no homework, woo! — but I come home from work and I’m just brain dead. I’ve been spending way too much time playing Age of Empires, which I blame a bit on (here’s why/how: she introduced me to George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones and now A Clash of Kings, and all that battle reading, with the knights and the towers and the walls… suddenly AoE was calling to me). Oh, yes, I have had books to read recently, too, though I’ve been getting in about :40 of reading a day over lunch. Sometimes I watch PBS… OK, in the background while I’m playing AoE.
I hardly even go to movies anymore! Gah.
The thing is, I know this will all end and I’ll get back to writing and reading and commenting and everything soon. I go in phases, and I haven’t managed to figure out exactly what triggers them. So I’m in a Brainless Phase. It’s been a bit more brainless than most, but… everything will balance out soon. Right? Right? It’s not that my brain is actually craving its old hours and will refuse to play nicely on this new early-to-bed and moderately-early-to-rise schedule, right?
