Of Antisocial Recluses (Is That a Word?) and New Ideas

Okay. So I've been kind of an antisocial recluse lately. Not just blogging. Emails, letters, phone calls, thank-you notes, social events-- I've been avoiding all of them for some reason. I want to do things... but I don't. With everything. I want to read, but don't. I want to write, but don't. I want to work ahead in my studies, but I don't. I want to socialize, but I don't. I just... can't. Everything has gotten hard lately for some reason. Even talking to my closest friends. I get up and I go through the day with the goal of going back to bed as soon as possible. I come home, I do my work, I curl up on my bed and switch back and forth between the same three apps. Or stare at the ceiling. I say as little as possible to anyone during the day. What is wrong with you, Rebecca, get a grip. I don't know. Also, I now do everything at the last minute, even if it means pulling an all-nighter. You could give me sixty-seven years to study for a test, work on a project, make a gift for someone. I'd still do it the night before.

I'm just so glad I have those awesome friends that I can talk to. Y'all know who you are. Thank you. :) I love you.

So enough blabbering and excuses. What am I posting again?

Oh right. I'm apologizing. I truly am sorry for not blogging or commenting... or responding to communication of any kind, for that matter. I know I've said it before, but I'm hoping to not ever have to say it again. This time I'm sticking to a schedule. I swear. Posts twice a week. Promise. ;)

For this idea... I saw it a while ago on a blog that I can't remember the name of... to improve your writers' discipline, you write at least a page a day for an entire year. It can be a poem, a letter, a journal entry, a story, whatever. (Blog posts don't count though.) But the rules say it has to fill up at least a page. I thought I'd try it this year. Anyone else up for the challenge?

Well I'm off to write my page for the day. Wishing you guys the best year you've ever had in 2016!



  1. You don't always have to be up and about, replying to texts and going out. I've spent over 2 weeks being sloppy with communication, although granted I'm in a complete different continent. As for your 'write a page a day' thing. I love that idea. Imagine what you'll have to read over at the end.

  2. It does get kind of crazy with social media always right at our touch. I think it's good to step back every now and then and readjust.
