Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

Unmotivated

Hand on Cheek I am human you know. I believe there was a group of people out there who thought I was an alien, I assure you, I am an earthling.

Now on to more pressing matters. Seriously.

This is the type of day I hate the most. I wake up early, after a good sleep, and I’m all ready to work and be productive then, I freeze. I dont feel like doing much, but I force myself anyway.

I open up a few windows on my laptop; My email, my reader, my downloads of the day, a couple of other websites for entertainment purposes, and a couple of programs related to work. I sit there staring at the screen. For the life of me, I dont know why, but I cant get myself to start anything.

Alright alright. Ill start with the easy stuff. I go through my email.

Oh nice. 3 unread. Read them, check.

Next. The reader. Now, ever since a couple of days ago, I cleared my reader so today I had only about 150 articles and blog posts to go through, most of which are comments and uninteresting articles so I go through only the headlines.

Reader status? 0 new. Excellent.

Next. Hmm, downloads? Got that done pretty quick anyway, and after that? Work? Read (work related stuff, or other interesting articles)? Surf? Chat? No. None seem quite interesting at the moment (even the interesting articles.)

What now?

I know. Ill blog about being unmotivated.

There you have it folks.

But wait. Blogging? Done. Now what?

Bullocks.

    Music will solve it for you + Manage to let someone else do your stuff for you.

    “Bullocks”? Really? Hahaha, I haven’t heard/read that in forever!

    I guess now you’ve got answering back to comments to do. But then what? Dun-dun-dun-dunnnn!

    I can certainly relate to you, because I have been rather unmotivated as of late as well. Personally I have been blaming it on the cold weather, but in all candor that is a rather empty excuse.

    Abdullah,
    That does sound rather intruiging!

    Sou,
    Yes, I tend to enjoy swearing in british =p …and then it is a brand new day!

    Tanler,
    You really a person or just a spam bot? Regardless, the weather can have a huge impact. I would also attribute some of it from the cold weather here at the office. It is generally cold to keep the servers cool too.

    eshda3wa,
    I think I should! :)

    Your *office* is cold to cool the *servers* ?! I think either you’re sitting in the wrong room, or your servers are :p

    I feel your lack of motivation. In my case it comes from work. Too much idiocy and slowness of how things you want to do for work go. (mostly stopped due to idiocy).

    Sometimes you just need a kick start to the day!

    I hate the part where you leave to go to work. I freeze right after that. See? I’m getting good at blaming things on you;p

  11. Tanler |

    @MBH, LOL, no certainly not a spam bot, but thanks for asking?

    I believe that Marzouq brings up an excellent point regarding the location of you or your servers

    MBH,
    It isn’t the wrong room, the design is flawed here, so it really sucks.

    Marzouq,
    I usually get it done with tea!

    The Extravagate,
    The bullocks helps =p

    Joud,
    Sooner or later, hope you don’t get stuck like I did. And the tag is done, really very interesting results!

    Amethyst,
    And why should you get good at it! ;/

    Tanler,
    You are welcome, and glad you’re not one of those heh. Well, like I said, the design at the office is terrible.

  13. Amethyst |

    Because I’m evil? Isn’t it obvious by now?

  14. Nasser |

    Amethyst,
    Yes you are =*

    You know… although you did this….

    For me personally… I find that when I get a good sleep, I am more productive, whenever I try to push it, and I get my sleep cycle out of whack, it seems thats when I get unproductive. Although somedays you just can’t help that feeling of un-motivation, but sometimes if you just start it, you will keep going, and just starting it, is all it takes sometimes.

    Till then,

    jean

    used tires,
    Usually that is all what it takes, just starting it. Thanks.
