It's been a quiet, cloudy, and somewhat cool, Sunday. There's nothing much going on so I've been mostly sitting around all day playing on the computer. Which reminds me, I wonder what I did with my life when I didn't have a computer to play on? It was so long ago that I can't remember.
One things for sure I must've been more productive. If I spent as much time accomplishing things back in pre-PC days as I do now playing on a computer, I must've gotten a lot done.
But I've got a feeling that if someone took away my computer, I still wouldn't get anything done. I believe I have to look in the rearview mirror to see myself accomplishing anything more than the most basic and mundane task, because I have to be "in the mood" And even then it takes me forever.
I don't think this is a physical problem because I feel just fine. And I don't think it's a mental problem because I still seem to have what few mental faculties that I started with. It seems to be an attitude problem, or maybe a lack of ambition.
Now I've never been exactly overflowing with ambition, but it appears to me the computer has had something to do with making me even more lazy and unambitious than I was before. I can start looking at things on YouTube while eating a sandwich for lunch and the next thing I know it's dinner time and I've done nothing all day except eat, and look at the computer. This can't be good.
I lived the majority of my life without a computer and I was perfectly happy. Now I can't live without the thing and I'm a lazy bum. I wonder if anyone else has experienced this? I think I'll look it up on the computer.
