Looking at the length of my posts lately, I’d say it confirms my suspicion that I’ve been guilty of rather shallow thinking lately. This is unsurprising. The future is scary. I’ve been living at home, avoiding any hard decisions. I need to take the time to think things through.
On the plus side, it’s not as if I’ve lost my capacity for deep thinking; it’s just that I’m currently devoting all of that talent to fantasy football.
So I’ll have to cast aside the aphoristic style in favor of more long-term posts. Hopefully. It may mean less posts, but I hope it means better ones. I suppose, then, that college wasn’t all a waste. Writing a paper for college requires depth of thought and intense concentration. That’s something I need to work on re-cultivating.
The short style wasn’t all a waste. There’s a cycle to these things. The pendulum now needs to shift in the direction of deeper thinking.
In other news, I’m taking a much needed week-long break from The Chalkboard Manifesto. Updating has been stressful lately, and I don’t feel like I’ve been putting forth the best product. Again, this is the whole cycle thing. A fallow period will be good before the next planting and harvest.
