Monday Morning Commute: I don’t know how to think anymore.
I don’t know how to think anymore.
I tried to write an earnest reflection about how I’m currently feeling about life. But, lo and behold, it turned out to be an overwrought thinkpiece of half-nonsense and half-pretense, and ultimately a whole lot of nothing. I’m thirty-one, which is five years too old to wax philosophic and call it honor.
So I killed that darling.
Then I tried to write one of my standard pieces of drivel-fiction. Y’know, the ones where I use robots and space as stand-ins for people and circumstances. The one I tried to hack away at this week was about an android named Dorothy who couldn’t bring herself to kill a dog, despite being able to predict that the dog was going to maim a little boy. Engrossing, I know, but it just felt too paint-by-numbers for me.
So that darling got killed, too.
Where does that leave us? Where does that leave me? Well, I guess all I can say is that I don’t know what – or maybe even how – to think anymore. But I have to believe that some of you are still thinkin’!
So let’s do this, MONDAY MORNING COMMUTE! I’m going to tell you what I’ve got lined up for this week. Then you swoop in to comment on my plans and share your own.
Continuing to frustrate everyone (including myself) by watching BONUS FEATURES of THE LAST JEDI!
Diggin’ into UGLY DELICIOUS on Netflix!
Encouraging anyone who ever liked RATM to watch this BOOTLEG of their FIRST PERFORMANCE!
Fighting yet ANOTHER GODDAMN SNOWSTORM! Officially sick of Winter.
Ending the week by TRAVELING TO LONDON for a school-sponsored adventure!
I’m lookin’ — anyone have any BOOK SUGGESTIONS? I don’t sleep on planes, I read on `em!
So that’s my week! Whattaya make of that? And what’re YOU up to?!
