Word for Wednesday #16
Ennui: A feeling of being bored and mentally tired caused by having nothing exciting or interesting to do.
This definitely describes the last few days. I have a lot of things to do, but nothing interesting or exciting. Not for me anyway. All the Christmas preparations – decorating, wrapping, shopping, housework, washing. Dull, dull and fucking dull.
And it’s not that I’m unhappy, far from it. I feel better than I have in a while. Things are just routine, something to do with the time of year. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut when it’s cold, grey and miserable outside.
Things I’d rather be doing:
Taking lots of photos – house full of kids it’s not easy to get nekkid. Weather’s too bad for outdoor photography.
Writing – Taking a break because the words aren’t there.
Talking shit – Everyone’s too busy talking Christmas.
Anything apart from what I am doing – I want to go somewhere, do something. It would be nice to be somewhere warm.
Laugh, love, live – I just want to feel like I’m doing something rather than lots of nothing.
