A Semi-Hiatus is Needed

So... I've never had to write a post like this before. I've written about being tired of reading, of projects, of life in general, but I've never said I'm tired of this. Of talking to you guys through my posts and comments. Of reading yours, even if I get a bit stressed over that occasionally. I've never said I was tired of the Internet. But there's a first time for everything.

I just have no motivation. To do an-y-thing. I don't feel like reading and replying to emails, like reading posts, like writing posts, like critiquing things on Figment. I don't even want to watch YouTube videos for goodness sake! This lethargy and lack of drive weighs on me.

And I think this worry and stress is affecting other areas of my life. I feel nothing when I think about my writing goals that I was so excited about just a month ago. Thinking about my homework makes me want to just cry or explode or die or all three.

I need to shut down, reboot. Which is why I'm going on a bit of a hiatus.

I'm not sure how long I'll be gone. I need to immerse myself back in my life, my writing, and figure out a way to make the Internet a less stressful place once again, a place I enjoy being. No matter how long though, I'll be returning in storm. As the mood and ideas strike me, I plan to write and stockpile posts so that I will have plenty of things to share with you when I get back. I may also post an update or two between now and then. You never know what may happen.

Hopefully, I'll "see" all of you soon!

  1. Good for you Brooke. Maybe it's just the winter. I talked about that a bit today. I always get down and have to make myself do things.

    Enjoy your break! Do something new, laugh with friends. :)

    1. I do very much dislike the winter. Though I think it's mostly the cold. I don't usually sense a difference in myself during the season, but maybe you're right. :/

      Also, for some reason your comment was filtered as spam. I fixed it though. :)

  2. Don't feel too bad okay? Maybe you should just take a break from everything & watch TV shows or something. I guess you can't really take a break from the homework, but the rest of the time maybe just chill out a bit and reset as you said. There's no shame in suffering burn-out, it happens to us all! Sometimes I find myself looking on the internet for something to entertain me and I realise there's nothing - it's all just completely boring. That's when I know I need to shut the computer off. :)

    1. Yes, I've been getting back into books again over the past couple of weeks. Oh, how I've missed them. They are being much friendlier to my mind than the computer.

  3. Everyone needs a vacation, Brooke. Go out and hang with your young friends! Enjoy school! Crush on a boy! But live your young life. We'll still be around when things get boring again and the world starts to look a lot like winter again. Spring is in the air...

    1. I plan to, Michael. :) I think all of those things are also part of the reason I haven't been feeling the Internet. They make me feel more alive.
