Blast These Moods of Mine…

Submitted by on June 8, 2010 – 12:50 pm

I do apologize for not making any posts as of late. I’ve been wanting to, really. D:

I just haven’t been able to think of anything. Yes, I’m fully aware this is a cop-out of sorts. Talking about how I’ve nothing to talk about… But I just wanted to put SOMETHING up, at least.

You see, nothing has been happening in my end of the world. I’ve got some shiny new games I could try and review, but they’re not exactly the newest games in the world. Reviews for them have been out there for months, if not years. Besides, that’s SCSA’s schtick.

So let’s try and make a post/rant about nothing.

Why is it that our ordinary lives can seem so droll, especially to ourselves? Do we really adjust so quickly and perfectly to the paths before us? Have the lives of so much of humanity slowed down and become so regular that small things such as getting a microwave or saving a few cents on gas seem exciting? Why is that? It’s hardly fair, when you think about it.

We see others leading spectacular lives on our televisions, read about them in the news, or hear about them on the radio. We see these people and think ‘Man, I wish I could do that.’ But we don’t try to. Perhaps this change and steadfastness to the mundane is due to people developing a ‘bubble of safety’, of sorts.

In this bubble we are safe. In this bubble we are stable. We are ready for all the events life can throw at us. There is nothing outside our bubble for us to recognize. We will not leave this bubble for anything unless we truly have to. Perhaps this relates to the apathy people have been developing towards each other over the years.

I think that’s what people might need nowadays. Needles. We need lots of needles. The metaphorical kind, you see. We need to pop those bubbles. We need to open up and see what’s out there, what can be done. People need to stop sitting around and not knowing what else they can do. Why have a bubble of safety in the first place? Were you hurt in your past? How do you expect to recover if you don’t expose yourself? Fear is a powerful motivational tool, yet it acts as a de-motivator (I’m fully aware this isn’t a word, so hush) as well.

So, to those who read this (and especially those who actually consider/use my advice/rants) I suggest you all go out tomorrow and try something you’ve NEVER done before. Open your bubble a little more. Get yourself out there. Maybe you’ll find a path you’ve never seen before, a way to something you’ve always wanted but never knew existed.

I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me who feels this way. Personally, I hope not. Anyways, I’ll end this poorly written rant/post here before I get OVERLY repetitive. Good luck out there, everyone. :D

    I think I'll go yell "I am GUNDAM!" at random people in Japanese…or Spanish…or English. Hell, I'll probably yell in all three lanugages. (ref. to Gundam 00 1st Season)

    You're right in that things have been a bit boring lately, and you're not the only one who thinks that. Basically, when life becomes a routine, whoever is living and has a thinking mind notices. It gets horrifying when a whole group of people accept it and do nothing special because it'd break the norm. Ah well.
