The Agony of Apathy

Hey, y’all. I hope you’re all doing well. This’ll be a slightly different post than the ones I usually make. It’s not something too severe, so there’s no need to feel worried. Just don’t expect the laid back discussion of media that I usually unleash upon your feeds.

When I made this blog, I set up a bit of a schedule, with only occasional pieces put out. But after a while, when I’d gotten a feel for the entire thing, I loosened it quite a bit, posting whenever I felt like talking about something (usually a movie). And that worked out for me, as it helped my blog grow to a decent degree while giving me some wiggle room in case my schedule ever threw stuff for a loop. And even if I had a very loose posting schedule, I managed to keep a semi-regular rhythm to it all. For the past year, however, things have been a bit different in that regard. I’ve not been able to post quite as much as I have in the past. I can already see how y’all are typing in the comments “Oh you’re probably busy, so we understand”. But I’m both unemployed and not studying, giving me a very open schedule. So what’s keeping me from doing this?

As you could see in the title of the post, and in this thing posted right above this paragraph… Apathy is to blame. Don’t think I don’t like you guys. You all are great, and the constant supporting of my reviews and other antics I cherish with every inch of my heart and mind. I just don’t get as enthused about writing as I used to do. I watch a movie, and when I think “I might review that”… nothing. There’s been multiple occasions this year alone when I’ve had that thought but not fulfilling it. I like giving you guys content, but there’s just something in my mind keeping me from doing it.

Maybe I’m just burnt out.

Don’t think I’m enjoying this lull in not writing. Sure, I might be doing fun things I enjoy… but not being able to put out content for y’all causes me agony. I love blogging. It’s just that six years of doing it semi-regularly maybe has me a bit fucking knackered in the noggin.

Arnold might be onto something.

Don’t think I’m quitting now, there’s still a ton of movies and shows and tunes that need my terrible opinions showered on them. Just know that if I’m taking a little while until my next piece, just know that it’s for my own mental well-being, and to hopefully be rid of this apathy.

I love you guys. Have a good one.

  1. Your photo perfectly illustrates your mood, Markus. If I was younger, I am sure that I might feel the same.
    Have a break. Get inspired again.
    We will still be here when you come back.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. As it has been said, this happens to most of us at some point or another. Take that break, refresh and come back when you are ready.
    It was the pressure of schedules and feeling like i HAD to get stuff out that put me over the edge and I had to step away/step back for a bit.
    Just remember that we all read your stuff whatever day it gets put out!

  3. Sometimes you just need to take a step back. I hope you’ll find inspiration in time. Whatever happens, be happy and keep well! 🙂
