Edit: Thank you for all your supportive comments. I’ve approved all the ones on this post and I’ll be taking my time responding while I finish my assignments due this week. ♥️
I’m back to square one again: stress. Mentioned one too many times in all of my posts, I think this evil devil deserves a whack on the head. I have tried to go back to my stress balls, and James even gave me a pink round one. It’s nice, because I haven’t had round ones for a very, very long time. I’ve had star shaped ones, and one shaped like a man (what the hell, seriously), and one like a football.
Anyway, it has probably… finally hit me that I have three assignments due next week. I’ve nearly done one, but I’ll be finishing it off tomorrow, I guess. I still hate assignments. I hate them so much right now and they are piling up. I think it’s just the fact that there are so many at once. If I put my mind to it, I’ll be alright. I’m sure I’ll be alright. My mum used my computer for two hours today, and I’m irritated because I couldn’t do anything during that time. My animation homework needed the computer, so did my other assignments. Crazy. And I’m not dependent on technology, that’s just the way things bloody are.
All the same, I feel that I am falling into that pit of stress yet again. I swear, it always happens around this time of year. Yesterday I promised myself I wouldn’t, but far bloody out. It’s going to hit me whether I like it or not. And it’s going to take me forever to respond to comments anymore, and honestly, I say this all the time but I am beginning not to bother. I just have way too much on my plate right now and I already don’t respond to them as I should. I just read them, go on my merry way.
The reason I’m saying this is because a lot of people ask me questions when they comment, and I feel I must answer. At the same time, I think that some of their questions could be answered simply by going to Google and looking it up. It still annoys me when someone asks me something that they could look up. Notice how I linked “wonton” to its Wikipedia page in my last post? Just in case someone doesn’t know what a wonton is. Because I get really tired of people asking me things that they can find out if they take just another second to look. Or asking how old I am, when it’s in the sidebar in most of my pages. Or asking where I’m from when they could take one quick look at my ‘about me’ page to realise I’m from Australia.
That’s probably why blogging has its own sort of undefined rules. If you stumble across a random blog post and there are bits you don’t understand, you just walked into someone’s life. Someone you know next to nothing about. I know we make friends through the internet but when you just read someone’s blog posts, take the opportunity to read a bit about them if you want to chat to them. It’s not that hard. That’s why ‘about me’ pages were made. So you can know a little bit more about the head behind a diary entry. If you want to take the time to get to know someone, go on, read what they put out there. If you want to know who ‘James’ is, go on, read the other posts in which they mention ‘James’.
Because, you know, I’m not going to say “James, my boyfriend”; every single time.
And what I’m trying to say is that right now, I don’t have the time to answer everything so quickly. I don’t have the time to read through comments so quickly. Time, time, time. Oh I said I was good at time management alright, but that doesn’t mean I have the time for website stuff. As for time in that regard, I’m taking my time.
