I have let the blog stagnate for a while. It’s been too long since I have done a podcast that I don’t even know if I have it in me to try another one. I am taking a very long break from making music. Right now I am just not sure what I want to do creatively going forward.
I very much enjoy my job as a writer for a local newspaper. I enjoy meeting people, telling their stories and writing about what is happening around me. Sure I would like to take on bigger projects but right now I think between work, and school, I think I might just take things a little slow. Then I think if I do that all I am doing is admitting I can’t handle the pressure of staying busy. If I want to be successful in the media word, which I think I do, then I am going to have to step it up.
What that means for me is not shying away from the blog because of school instead I will use the two to work for me. In other words what I think I will do is write about the topics that I am covering in my course. Since the course I am taking is on Heroes and Anti-Heroes in Popular Culture that opens me up for plenty of opportunities to write about things that interest me. As such I will be trying to use the course for inspiration going forward while at the same time using the blog as a means of putting my thoughts on paper so that I can write better essays for the class.
I am also thinking I might try to get on Twitter more. I have it on my phone now so that should make it easier to make use of it. I am thinking that while I am at football games I might try to use the Twitter to shoot out live updates on scores and action. I will see how that goes. I want to keep moving forward so I want to try doing new things. I think that with proper planning I should be able to find the time to do more of the things that I want. I mostly just need motivation which is a trick. The truth is I am never satisfied with what I am doing, I always want to be doing more. But there is nothing wrong with that, staying put can be a bad thing if you do it for too long.
The good news of all this is, I will be writing more. Also I am one step closer to finishing my degree, I only have 2 semesters to go in order to graduate so I should be done pretty soon. I will be so happy once that is finished then I can move forward in my life. I know it takes time. I don’t know what else to say, I am hoping that as I write more I will find more inspiration.
