I'm bored.

Bored of this town, bored of this internet, bored at my job, bored in this moment.

I know it's my fault.  I really believe that boredom is a choice.  So even though I want to make a million excuses about why I'm stuck this way I'll avoid it.  I don't like excuses.

So what's wrong?  What about everything I used to wish for time to do?  What about all the things I've achieved?

I always go through post-summer letdown.  It's just not supposed to happen 'till August is over.  Maybe it's these freak storms making me trade my tank-tops for sweaters.

I totally feel the same way - summer blues! Even though there's still August and frankly the first part of September (if we're lucky) still feel like I haven't taken advantage of the summer enough and I just complain about how hot it is.

Listen to "Summer Skin" by Death Cab for Cutie.

I cant believe it is August already. Ugh.

Kris said...

Aww, thanks ladies. Nice to know I'm not completely alone this fine August evening (Yes, hard to believe!)

Allison, I'm on replay #3 of Summer Skin. I really appreciate songs being suggested. :) Your comment meant a lot.

We are definitely getting into the dog days of summer now, I am even having trouble getting out of bed for class :(

It will all pass soon!

Yeah August sucks. I think it's just the month. Nothing exciting happens in August really.

Kris said...

Yay! All sorts of people empowering my pathetic lack of inspiration! ;)

Possibly my favourite that you have written. I think this applies to everyone, at some point.. and to me right now.

You have such a talent for writing!

bored... or maybe you have a lot of things you can do but you just don't want to do things you are supposed to do?

did i say it right.. lol :)

it happens... boredom can make us crazy

Kris said...

Joy- I thought this was ranting, not writing :). But I'll take what I can :).

I'm seeing that everyone identifies a bit. This makes me happy. Which probably makes me a bit evil.

Bit of both, Hotcakes :).
