Because I don’t know what to blog about. Fine, I have my pending book write-ups, but I am too lazy to write them. I’m very worried because I am also too lazy to read lately (which is why I find it triumphant that I was able to read 30 pages in one sitting a few hours earlier).
A couple of friends told me that I shouldn’t think too much of it because it will come back. I’d like to think that my reading session this afternoon and this blog post are signs that my enthusiasm for reading and blogging is coming back.
Oops. No. I don’t think so. After typing the two paragraphs above, my mind is stuck. I can’t think of anything else to say.
I wouldn’t bother asking you for tips on how to get over this slump. I will follow my friends’ words: it will come back. And yes, I think I need to focus. These past few weeks, I’ve been so distracted with movies. Blame the Oscars for this, but so far, I enjoyed the movies that I have seen. I don’t think it would be surprising if I mention that I watched Life of Pi, Anna Karenina, and Les Miserables. And Silver Linings Playbook (it’s also based on a novel according to a friend and the credits).
I haven’t seen The Hobbit yet. I am not too keen on seeing it because I feel that it shouldn’t have been turned into a trilogy. If they do this, they should adapt the unabridged version of Les Miserables into a movie series. I know, I know, The Hobbit has a strong pull among moviegoers. I don’t know why they chopped a short children’s novel into three parts, but I can’t help thinking that it’s all for the money. And that is annoying me. Oh well, that’s the way the movie industry is; I have to suck it up.
I am becoming incoherent and pointless, so I should stop now. And yes, I shouldn’t really be talking about movies per se lest I turn this into a book-slash-movie blog. I hope to be back soon. Not that I am leaving, but I want to bring back my reading and blogging regularly. I hope I can rekindle the fire within this week. Or maybe next week. Or maybe after I finish watching my movies.
