I’m in a writing rut. It’s not a mystery that requires the involvement of Scooby Doo and those meddling kids. Don’t believe me? Well, you don’t have to look any further than my blog entry from last night. I thought I could snap myself out of it by force writing about Sirte, but I managed to mangle it more than anything.
I had time to ponder the lack of creativity and the lack of a flow in my writing this morning on my way to work as I was “enjoying” my morning commute with the other denizens of the freeway. This blog is supposed to serve as a platform for me to bring forward more awareness of issues I find important; actually, if you read the about me section, this blog is supposed to serve as a platform for me to practice and improve my writing, so I guess that makes me a liar and a falsifier. Instead, I am struggling to write things, leaving me uninspired to write anything!
So how do I snap myself out of this funk?
Well, a thought hashed its way into my mind as I was stuck in traffic. I find that I write better when I ramble on about random topics. It doesn’t matter what the topic is. It could be about sardines, ravioli, moster trucks, anything. So the solution to all my writing problems may be easier than I thought originally. I will just ramble on incessantly about something–much like Abe Simpson when he’s reminiscing about days past.
Yes! Why not?
Perhaps I can produce something more substantial and worthwhile than the nonsense I have been turning out lately (Not to say that this writing isn’t nonsense because it is nonsense since it’s just a bunch of jumbled thoughts spliced together. Well, you get the point).
So last night, I checked the the forecaset due to the unusually hot weather we had here yesterday in the San Diego area–usually around this time, it’s starting to cool down. I’m not a big fan of hot weather because it puts a damper on my daily naps in my car during my lunch break. Now granted, I could do something crazy like eat a lunch in an air-conditioned building, but I find taking a nap to be a refreshing thing because it keeps me aware for the general purpose of doing things such as gerrymandering.
Where am I going with this? Honestly, I don’t know. I had these romantic ideas and visions where I would opine about how the media hardly mentions global warming–or climate change for those who are politically correct–but now I’m just confusing myself, perhaps confusing you as well.
I have written about the extreme weather conditions the Earth has experienced recently. Growing up in the San Diego area, I remember during the winter time, it would usually be no colder than 50 degrees. Now for the past two years since I have returned, the winter temperatures have been in the 30s and 40s at night.
During the past two summers, it was fairly warm during the day, but the temperature has dropped significantly at night. I know the mainstream media has its own ideas for extreme weather conditions, like how these are cycles and phases the earth experiences every so often, in addition to mounting more and more speculation on whether Ashton and Demi are going to break up, but that’s neither here nor there.
I do find it amazing that humans are so arrogant to think that the activities in which they engage do not somehow affect weather patterns. Or am I so arrogant to think that humans are arrogant to think their activities don’t affect the weather somehow? Either way, someone is arrogant.
Cows and other animals aren’t the only creatures on this planet releasing obnoxious things into the atmosphere. Humans engage in activities such as piloting vehicles, manufacturing products, and so forth. All these things emit waste either in the form of refuse or in the form of gaseous byproducts that can have a debilitating effect on something such as the ozone layer. Remember when the use of hairspray–the hair product, not the musical–was found to have pernicious effects on the ozone layer?
Once again, the temperature here in lovely San Diego spiked up today, so taking a nap is probably not a wise decision. Maybe I’ll go crazy by actually eating lunch, then bask in the lovely, and not to mention, very warm autumn day–although it feels more like summer.
