Blogging for the sake of sanity
I am very bored these days, as unemployment has taken its toll on me and I am really bored to death in nowhere town. Well, my wife and I do keep ourselves busy, but weekdays are long, long, long, and they end up being very exhausting even when I don't do much. That's the problem about being unemployed: one feels like he "works" without a salary, whatever the efforts he makes they are, in essence, fruitless. And the longer it is, the more exhausting it gets. I have sometimes the feeling that a vampire is sucking my energy and my morale. So I am not so happy these days. I guess this is partially why I blog: because it helps me keep my sanity. Of course, I don't have much of a readership, but writing makes me feel less schizophrenic by putting my thoughts in the outside world. So I make an effort to blog at least once a day, I try to be as interesting as possible. Because a mind is like a shark: if it stops moving, it drowns.
