Lack of Motivation, Opinion on Cursing, etc.

You were expecting to see a Writing 101 assignment, weren’t you? Well, today’s assignment requires a lot of thinking .. but not really. Basically, I have to do a character study on an interesting person I’ve met in the past year .. and I’m having a hard time coming up with someone to write about. But once I think of someone, the rest will come easy (I assume/hope).

Ugh, and so much for writing anything this weekend. My lack of motivation is really starting to get to me, and I just don’t know what to do about it. Maybe I will just start to take my thyroid medication at night instead of not take it all .. I don’t take it because I’m supposed to take it an hour before breakfast, but when I wake up I just want to eat! So I set my alarm to go off an hour before I get up to remind me to take it, but I am just too tired to get up and get some water. I know I should leave it at my bed, but then the cat will get to the before me, and I can’t keep the cat out of my room because I’m in the loft. I know you’re supposed to take it on an empty stomach because of absorption, but from what I’ve read on the internet, it’s not so bad to take it at night. I guess I’ll do this until I talk to my doctor. Whatever. When you don’t have any motivation, what do you to get yourself going?

But back to not writing this weekend .. I actually meant to do something on here this weekend, but I don’t want to mention what it is until I finish it completely. I also need to into the technical (for lack of better term) aspects of it .. meh, I don’t know. It’ll make so much more sense once I get around to it. I also wanted to do a couple reviews for my PINCHme items I got in the mail last week, but to be honest, I haven’t used either yet .. but I’m going to use the one item I received tonight when I shower. Shit, I still have to do my official review for Influenster’s Carefree #FreshIsFierce campaign on Facebook .. of course I’ll put it on here too.

Other than that, my weekend was fine. I didn’t do anything, like usual. Yesterday was my son’s 8th birthday. My dad went to his party; lucky him. Maybe I’ll be there for his next birthday .. or better yet, host it =]

I need to get on the ball about finding a job, which goes back to the motivation thing. That, and plus the fact that I literally sleep for 12 hours a day. I’m not even going to bed at like 3:00am anymore .. maybe 1:00am at the latest. And I don’t wake up until at least 12:30-1:00pm. Fuck, man! But I need to get into some temp agencies. I need to do this. My dad’s getting sick of me, and I’m getting sick of myself. It really does suck man. Plus, once I start working, I can legit have more say about house stuff, like curtains and kitchen tables.

Oh hey, what’s your opinions on bloggers [like myself] who curse in their posts?

I ask because most of the time I try not out of respect, but sometimes I just want to. To be honest, I curse [a lot] in real life and in the privacy of my personal Facebook, so I don’t care if others do or where they do it. I don’t want to lose you guys because of something petty, so I won’t continue to do so if most of you don’t want to me to.

Well, I just wanted to give a little “hi” update for my awesome followers; I should have an entry for tomorrow’s (and maybe today’s!) Writing 101 assignment.. Have a great week! Enjoy this weather before it gets too hot ;D

    Like everything else we do in life, you can curse on your blog, but there are consequences.

    Orson Scott Card, a somewhat famous Science Fiction author once wrote about profanity as a linguistic sledge hammer in the writer’s tool box. Folks who use it a lot are desensitized to its effects, and so they don’t appreciate its impact (kind of like smokers not understanding that they stink). It has shock value that is best used where shock is needed…if it is used at all.

    When a writer writes profanity, they define themselves. By defining themselves, they mold their group of readers to a certain size, consisting of people who are willing to read that particular amount of cursing. It is true that many find it offensive, but also a lot of folks view their own use of profanity as a personality flaw that they are trying to correct and they have found (as I’m sure you have) that profanity is contagious.

    As for the use of profanity generally…the same thing applies. Those who are troubled by less cussing than we speak will stop talking to us. If there are personality characteristics in those people that we admire, and want to have them around, then we should curb out tongues when they are around.

    And if we can do it sometimes, then why not always?

    I like you, so I’ll keep reading, even though I’m one of those folks who’s trying to stop cussin’. I’ve also been in the world a while and maybe can help. I won’t lecture you (I’m sure you get plenty of that), but I do want to help.
