Change of Topics

Alright, so here we are, me not blogging as much, for no excuse at all but laziness on my side, preoccupying myself with senseless things more often than sensible ones. Closing in on the 9th month of unemployment does wonders to the brain! Nevermind the fact that I have to entertain four other characters in my head (yes Moogle isn’t the only one), my being a social person (online and off) does little justice to what’s truly in my head!

True, I make people laugh, the ones who are into my kind of humor anyway, but when the PC is off and I sit on the balcony sipping anise and eating something distastefully low carb my mind wanders off  to a sea of dreams. Lots of the time they’re insensible, but more often than anyone would like to I do have something intelligent to say about me, others, and life in general.

Of course, I try to turn mundane events into a comic show. Surely, calling someone a fucking whore in front of a school bus is anything but amusing, but at least the lead up would have been funny.

But I sometimes want to talk about something serious, and from my own reading habits, reading serious posts takes quite a chunk of energy. No matter how in reality I do care about what I am reading, or the person behind the post, I cannot get myself to finish reading the post. Or if I do indeed finish, I really have nothing to say.

Which is why you don’t find me commenting often.

And here I go again losing track of what I want to say, which is: give me inspiration. My blog isn’t as good as it used to be. Of course it might be because I constantly seek to  improve everything when I should enjoy them.

But a little reader input wouldn’t hurt.

    i think the trick about writing something serious is to keep it to the point, yet powerful. i’ve found that i have to choose my words carefully and say as much as i can in as few words as possible..because you are right..it does take energy to wade through the depths of a serious piece of writing..but honestly, you have a unique style of writing which, even if it is a serious topic, will keep the readers interest..so go for it! you should never hold back from writing what you want to write about because you think it won’t keep your readers’ interest. if you feel strongly about it then im sure your avid readers will too.

    What exactly is a serious topic??? food is serious to me when I’m hungry, the TV programme is serious when I have power over the ever so precious remote, a spoon is serious and sooo important when I have a pot of caramel Danette, shoes serious all the time. What about if you pick a topic depending on the day you write…if it’s Thursday the topic starts with a T, and if nothing comes up give us a new juice recipe, after all the blog is called jar of juice. Now I realise I am going on and on about food, I think I shall visit the fridge :p

    Take the thing you are MOST passionate about and write about that (for quite a while). Focus your fire and follow your bliss.

    I can’t think of a subject to suggest to you, but i do have some advice on something else. have you thought of taking a part time job doing something else? I mean just until you find a job that you really want. It might hold off the boredom and laziness a bit and it might give you something to write about.

    Well, hello and Happy New Year. I’m not sure I can give you much advice as I usually have the same problem myself…particularly lately. Not that I write anything to funny on my blog but I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the serious stuff. I think unless I get all fired up about something, there’s really no point in writing. Maybe you could write more about your photography? The stories behind the photos? Maybe something just to get you back in the groove. Or better yet, since you have such a fantastic imagination, make up a story behind them. We’ll never know the difference! :) Good luck and I hope to drop by to read more.
