A Long Overdue Update…

Standard

I’d love to say the main reason I’ve been so absent from my blog over the past month is because I’ve been too busy actually living life.  That I’m so busy that I just haven’t had a single moment to pop online to update my blog.

I’d really love to say all that.. but that be a load of shit.  LOL

Life has been slightly busy over the past month since I returned from Gran Canaria, but not so much so that I couldn’t jot something down quickly just to keep the site up to date.

sloth_lazy_tv_art_mloveizm_magazineThe honest truth?  I’ve been an absolutely lazy twat.  HAHAHA

Work never gets any busier than it already is, as there’s zero overtime or requirements to work on the weekends.  Most days I get home from work, lay on my bed playing on the iPad (which I could easily use to write blog posts..) and then plop myself in front of the television while I gobble up my dinner.

Real exciting life, huh? 😉

Ok.. so my isn’t really THAT dull and predictable.  I have gone out a couple times here or there, and one recent weekend saw me going to two different birthday parties.  It’s not all boredom and being social hermit, but it does feel that way sometimes.

I can’t even say that I haven’t had much to write about or even to say about my life and the world around me, cause there’s loads going on in the world that I have some definite opinions about.

threesomeAnd it’s not even that I’ve been dating someone, or meeting loads of new guys causing me to be too busy having fun to get my ass online.  Or that I’ve just been busy having loads of sex (I wish!! LOL).

Cause let’s be honest… like most people, I’m online all the time really.  Both at home and at work.  Especially after my mobile provider quadrupled my monthly data allowance recently.

For some reason it’s been weeks since I’ve turned on my laptop, even to just listen to music or watch a movie online.  Funny how things change, when before I used to literally live on my laptop… Think at one point last year I actually ran out of things to watch on Netflix. haha

Maybe it was just time for a bit of a break (again!), and I needed to gather my thoughts a bit before launching any new posts or rants about the world around me… but that’s just giving another lame excuse.

Like I already admitted, I’m lazy.  lol

And like most lazy guys, the longer you allow yourself to get drawn into the habits of laziness, the easier it is to just go with it and not break the cycle.  Having a quiet lazy day or evening after a busy day at work is absolute bliss.. but can’t be letting it take over my life, right?

lazy-monday-8So.. what now?

I’m not going to make some grandiose promise about how I’m going to do better about updating my blog, making sure I don’t go more than a couple days without a post.  That would just be setting myself up for failure, and life should be all about realistic and attainable goals.

I do have loads to catch up on, and so much that I’m just itching to write about.. so we’ll see how things go.

And since I’m already on my laptop, maybe I’ll just have to get all those stories out while I can.  🙂

Soooooo Tired…

Standard

*YAWN*

I’ve been so tired lately, and am barely staying awake as I write this… though today’s tiredness is probably a lot more to do with not getting home until well after 3am last night after going dancing in Vauxhall with a mate.  😉

I’m not sure if my tiredness is a result of a lack of sleep or of my new job keeping me super busy all day.. or a combination of the two.  Most days when I come home from work, all I want to do is curl up on the sofa and read on my Kindle.

Which would explain, for those who visit here regularly, why I’ve only been posting about once a week lately.  I just don’t seem to have the energy in the evenings.  Hell, in the past couple weeks I think I’ve turned my laptop on maybe 3 or 4 times?  In fact, my previous post was done from my iPad, cause that way I could get comfy instead of sitting at the desk with the laptop.

On top of it, I haven’t been to the gym since I started my new job.  It’s no longer on my way home from work, so would take me well out of my way to get there then head home… In fact, in half the time it would take me to get to the gym from work, I could be home relaxing on the sofa.

lazy-monday-8Yep… I’m being lazy.  I know it, I admit it, and I’m enjoying it.  LOL

And what are my plans to change this laziness?  How am I going to perk myself up a bit to rid myself of the regular tiredness?  To be honest, I haven’t thought about it at all.

Lately I’ve just been enjoying life as it happens and not thinking too far ahead.  See where each day takes me without worrying if it’s where I should be.

In the past week, I’ve been out a couple times – last night dancing in Vauxhall as mentioned, and Wednesday night to the monthly bear bowling night in Elephant & Castle – and I spent last weekend with my new Kurdish ‘friend’ in Guildford.

In fact, I think I’ve been out at least once a week/weekend for the past month or so.  When did I become so social?  LOL

A mate of mine said to me a couple times recently how happy I look these days.  I don’t know if I feel particularly happy lately, but I don’t feel UN-happy, which is a very nice change for me. I suppose if I had to label how I’ve been feel lately (besides tired lol), I would call it content –  I’ve got an interesting and demanding job that keeps me on my toes, and I’ve been getting out of the house a bit.

My life isn’t perfect.  I’m still single.  I don’t have my dream job.  I’m not being waited on by a gorgeous hunky man while lounging on a sandy beach… oh oops.  Wrong dream.  😉

Guess what I’m saying is I am happy with where my life is at the moment, regardless of where I would like it to be.  I’m enjoying it right now, and I’m going to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

Now.. think it’s time to curl up on that comfy sofa of mine to read.. or maybe take a nap.  😀

You Lazy Bugger ;-)

Sometimes I swear if you looked up the definition of ‘Lazy’ in the dictionary, you just might find my picture beside it.  le2tI am so good at putting things off that sometimes they just never get done.

Oh wait, is that being lazy or is that being a procrastinator?

Let’s be honest, we all enjoy a bit of lazy ‘me’ time.  Time where you sit around, do nothing, watch crap on TV, eat bad food, and just vegetate.  It can be absolutely relaxing and sometimes just what you need to refresh.  A lot of people these days spend so much time rushing from place to place that they don’t have time to relax and just enjoy life.

Who says it’s a bad thing to spend an evening curled up on the couch watching a movie or reading a book.  Or even playing silly (but fun) games on your iPad.

Personally I think it’s a good thing to have time to relax and recharge… as long as you don’t overdue and you move from enjoying a nice lazy day, to spending all your free time propped on the sofa with the remote in your hand, telling yourself you’ll start that project tomorrow, or you could always do the ironing on the weekend, or any other such things that allows you to stay exactly where you are, being lazy.how-to-reform-a-lazy-boyfriend

And there’s where it becomes procrastination, at least it does for me.  For several months now, I’ve had a few projects I’ve wanted to get going on but literally just haven’t started.  Instead I spend most evenings sitting on the sofa with some American sitcoms on the TV (yay for repeats of The Big Bang Theory lol) while playing on my mobile or iPad.

Not exactly being productive, am I?  What should I be doing instead?

Well for starters, I could be using that time to write more on this blog, start that erotic series of short stories I’ve been thinking about, start another novel (since I can’t seem to get my old one back from the pit that was my old laptop.. dammit, why didn’t I back it up years ago when I wrote it??), or a dozen other ideas I have for stories banging around my head.  I keep saying I want to write more, so that means I should do just that.

As well, I need to get off my ass and complete that Project Management certification course I started last year.  project-management-for-the-rest-of-usFor quite awhile I seemed to be going through it fairly quickly, but then I literally put it aside as I concentrated on my job hunt.  Figured it was better to have a job that paid the bills (almost) than being out on the street still trying to complete that course.

And yes, I need to get off my ass and out of the house if I’m ever going to find a boyfriend.  There’s an extremely rare super-slim chance of ever meeting him (whomever he is) by sitting at home doing nothing.  Lord knows I’m not meeting anyone interesting off the apps these days, especially since there doesn’t seem to be many interesting guys living in my area (or at least, they’re not single or trolling for sex on the apps I’m using lol).

So… what am I going to do?  How am I going to get myself out of this rut?

I’m sure I could spend an evening setting up a writing and studying schedule for the next month or two, and I keep telling myself that’s exactly what I need to do..

Except I got lazy and decided to watch telly and play Candy Crush instead … Hmmm, maybe I’ll do it tomorrow.  😉
