Boredom and a Short Update

Have you ever planned so many things that you want to do within a certain time span but you just do not seem to quite get any of it done? Whether it be due to unexpected circumstances or just downright laziness, I never accomplish as much as I would like to and as such, I find my life just falls into tedium since I just do the same thing day in and out, waste most of my time on the internet doing nothing. To give you an example, I would love to be able to write more reviews and impressions than I do now, but I find myself always putting it off and never really feeling motivated to do so. I typically wait for motivation to hit me but as expected, it never does. So what is one to do in this situation? I find the advice of just sitting down and doing it works at times as just getting started is usually the hardest step, but then again, I will only do a little bit before distracting myself for hours in some meaningless task on the internet or hoping a topic of interest to me will spring up on a forum. Before I know it, it grows too late and I find I barely got anything accomplished leaving me to feel disappointed, bored, and just putting it off for another day. Procrastination is naturally the culprit here, but I find it is more so my lack of concentration on a task and just being easily distracted to be more the problem. Although this brings about another concern as there are times where I can remain completely focused and absorbed into something without anything else really getting in my way, including myself. I suppose this is nothing out of the ordinary as it makes sense that I am more interested in one undertaking more than another, but again referring to writing, it is something I wish I could just become absorbed in. It leads me to wonder whether I should even bother with it as if I cannot maintain an interest in it for long without getting distracted, what hope do I have? However, I do not think this is the case. I think it is more so that it is not something I am used to doing that much as posting blogs such as this is a new thing to me. It is also possible that I just have not found a method that really works for me yet, but that is a problem in and of itself as I put off trying new ways to do it too. These are just some passing thoughts and something that is often on my mind but not quite to the point where I really feel like doing anything about it. I already know the answer if I ask does anybody else have things they want to do but find themselves taking no action to accomplish them so I think the better the question to ask would be, what do you do about it so that you actually get things done without really forcing yourself too much? Passing thoughts aside, I am still playing Dissidia 012 heavily and have put about 120 hours total into it so far. I decided I would check out the semi-new labyrinth mode and I have to say, I do not think I will be playing it that much. They take all your equipment from you and you have to earn equipment while you are in there. If you lose, you lose any equipment you got while you were there. If you try to leave it without being at a designated exit, you lose everything. I do not find it is a mode that is all that fun and I found the previous game's duel colosseum to be much more enjoyable if only because it did not feel as tedious since you could leave it whenever you wanted to. I recently finished The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson and I found it to be a really enjoyable book. It is about solving a decades old murder within a big family but there is something more sinister lurking in the background. I am definitely looking forward to reading the next one(The Girl Who Played with Fire) after I finish Jack London's The Call of the Wild, which I am pleased to say I am enjoying as well. I will probably finish that off tonight as it is a short book, I just cannot believe I never read it sooner. I have not purchased too much since the last update, but I might as well share what I did get. I picked up The Girl Who Played with Fire and Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective. The latter is after hearing how good it was and because Siberian recommended it so I figured I might as well check it out, but I am not too sure when I will get around to playing it. I will probably start it up after I get through Darksiders as I have been meaning to start that up since I passed on the game way back when Bayonetta came out. Finally, I have a new sig as always. This one is of Remilia Scarlet, another character from Touhou. At the rate I am going, I am going to have one for every character in the series: Take care! ~ Seiryuu-
