i got bored with 50 shades of grey.
not that it’s boring by any stretch of the imagination. it’s true: the writing is frustrating at times. but it’s fan fiction for fuck’s sake, not a classic novel. in any case, it inspired me to get off twice in a 2 hour period, and it’s been a while since i’ve been like that.
but i need more.
i need creativity. i need to produce. to exact change. to shape and mold. i need to look forward to something. to build something. to make something from nothing.
literally something from nothing, because i’m fucking broke. ha.
that basically leaves me with two options: planning the classes i’ll be teaching and this blog. so here i am, 1:30am, wide awake, plotting the future of this source of respite and redemption. i’ve got some ideas that are starting to simmer that entail tapping into my artistic side.
speaking of which, i forgot to mention (…imagine that) that i decided to complement my writing with visual imagery via an account on pinterest. like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words! i’m using this as an opportunity to find images that express my feelings because sometimes words just don’t capture it. i’ve got a couple of boards up that are admittedly pretty depressing so you may want to hold off on checking me out for a bit. you can click the “follow me” button at the bottom of this page if you like.
my mind is a clusterfuck. i have too many ideas and no idea as to which one i should pursue first!
