We’re into August already? C’mon, now. Why must you be so fleeting, summer?
Anywho, these past few days have been good. On Monday, I skyped with a few of my friends, and I thoroughly enjoyed doing so. It felt incredibly wonderful catching up with them and seeing their faces, and to be filled in on the drama gracing their lives at the moment.
One of the friends I was skyping with asked me if I still write, because while we were talking to each other, I made a couple of amusing analogies and striking plays on words, and she just loved them. We were both giggling over them like a couple of little girls, but oh goodness, it was fantastic. Regrettably, I don’t really write on a regular basis anymore - not anything of the creative sort, at least. It sucks, though, that I get so caught up in life that I rarely have any time to engage in what used to be a favourite pastime of mine. I’m convinced that ever since I entered university and started becoming acclimatized to stiff, formal, and academic writing, my prose has begun to mirror the academic articles and journals that I’ve been exposed to. Hopefully I’ll find something to re-inspire my creativity, though.
Other than that, it’s been pretty lax over on my end. The sky is overcast today, and it looks pretty ominous for a shower or a thunderstorm later. Those can be kind of fun, especially when you’re indoors and comfortable, watching the downpour and listening to the rumblings of the storm from your bedroom window. A small pleasure in life that is welcomed from time to time :)
