I’ve been in a mood the past week or so where I have a hard time getting into any of the things I usually enjoy. On the creative side, everything is going quite well and I’m writing daily, but when it comes time to wind down and let my brain rest and be a bit consumptive nothing really holds my interest.
I caught myself revisiting media, TV and video games previously seen/beaten, which is something I rarely do. I think I’m remembering enjoying those things and I’m chasing the feeling. I decided to make a concerted effort NOT to do that because there’s too many new things to explore.
In the past I wrote about how, if you lose interest in things you normally enjoy, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve outgrown your hobbies because it’s probably
Keeping that in mind, I’ve been making a point of trying some type of new media each day, be it catching up on shows I didn’t finish, trying out games on GamePass, looking through my indie bundle, or (trying) to read books on my e-reader or shelves.
I wish I could say it’s working. I’m not sure it is, but making an effort feels oddly productive so there’s that.
