070821 – Morning Pages

Struggled to write even 500 words! Minds gone blank 🙁

8:03. Living like a thug for the last few days. No work. No workout. No control over what I am eating. I even saw three films in the last 2 days. The Jackal, Nobody, and The 2nd. I am living like the ones with a comfortable salary. You know, working for large companies that allow for leisure and other such pursuits. And no, this is not cool. Need a whack in the back of the head. Come on, Mr. Garg.

Ok. I dont know what to talk about.

It’s 8 and I am blank. I can’t talk about yesterday. It was fairly pathetic. In the sense, lot of work, lot of food, lot of carbs, lot of procrastination, lot of longing, lot of lazing around, lot of unbecoming me. Sigh!

Today I plan to not use the laptop after these morning pages. I have somewhere to be. And I will be occupied till late night with it. So no work shall happen today. Will have to hustle up tomorrow. At the airport Starbucks. Lol, Mr. Garg.

I think I need some divine intervention or something. Too many days of too much chilling and all that. Guess I need to see more of Dr. Peterson!

Ok. I sincerely dont know what to write. Guess the ink has run dry? Or maybe it is the aftereffect of lazing for too long? Or maybe because I knew I was going to be chilling, I did not? Should I quit writing these?

Wait. This is all of 270 words. Lemme talk more.

So since I’ve woken up, I have done the following…

  1. Had Maggi for breakfast. Hell yeah!
  2. Helped a friend craft her CV.
  3. Wrote an email that needs to be sent to a client’s clients.
  4. Played a few games of chess. Lost most of those.
  5. Saw a few TED videos. There was one on Dunning-Kruger effect. Something that I think I suffer from.
  6. Send a few books to Rege. It was pending for a while.
  7. Read news. There’s nothing new in there.
  8. Seen this documentary on sextortion.
  9. Wrote a prompt for PPP. It is, “You and your partner land in a foreign land for your annual holiday. You are looking forward to a relaxed time where you are away from all the hustle and bustle. But as soon as you land, the cops come over. And…”.

Wow. A lot.

Ok. I am still at 400 odd words. Will not let the torture continue. Will take a break. Back tomorrow.
