Gonna be honest – I’ve been thinking about deleting my blog.
Whenever I’m unhappy with something, I tend to catastrophize and immediately make drastic decisions – which, admittedly, is stupid. I sat down with the intention of writing a little post about the past year, and I just can’t find the energy to do it. I don’t know if I’m dealing with writer’s block or what, but I feel like I haven’t written anything worth reading in months. I’m sitting on a slew of unfinished games, which isn’t typical of me – I like to finish the games that I start. I still haven’t completed Ace Attorney, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, or Fatal Frame, though I’ve had plenty of time to do so. I don’t know, man. I’m in a weird headspace.
The extra pressure of feeling like I need to approach gaming from the perspective of “I need this to produce content for the blog in some way, shape, or form” has also been bumming me out. I’m not committed to deleting anything just yet, but I am going to take a break (from my exhaustive schedule of one post a month). Ideally, I’ll get over whatever-this-is and come back in the new year. I’m hoping taking my time to enjoy gaming again (especially since I was finally able to find a PS5). Maybe playing some new titles in 2022 (Elden Ring?) will make me excited to write again. For now… I don’t know? I guess this blog is taking a nap.
So I guess this is (probably temporary) goodbye. It feels weird to write this, but technically this is my blog, and I do want to share what I’m thinking (even if it’s negative). I genuinely want to thank everyone I’ve met here on WordPress for following, reading, and commenting on my stuff – I appreciate every single interaction I’ve had here. I do hope to be back in the new year, and I’ll still be reading other people’s posts. Also want to take this time to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and a happy new year! Bye for now!
