Why does my brain fill with creative ideas when I don’t have the time to actually complete any writing projects? This a question I have been asking myself a whole lot lately.
I have exams that start in less than a month. Yes, I am quietly stressing over the revision I should be doing whilst writing this blog post. However, unlike an entire novel, I can actually finish this today so I might as well keep writing.
Let’s just say I had a plan. It was the kind of plan that I’ve had for the past few years. I realise that it was hopeful but maybe just a little bit too ambitious for me right now. I was going to log out of all my social media sites (oops I only survived a day). I was going to have a revision schedule (unfortunately I never put pen to paper with that idea). I was basically going to spend any spare time, aside from college work, revising. My answer when people ask why I have currently failed to properly achieve those things is…I’m only human.
The statement “I’m only human” is something I’ve heard quite a lot. It implies that we shouldn’t have so much pressure placed upon us. It’s an excuse, or reason, why we sometimes fail to achieve the vast amount of goals we set ourselves. I admit that seems a defeatist, negative, pointless statement, but yet I still use it. I don’t know about you, but for me it’s actually a refreshing reminder that it’s okay to fail sometimes.
I started this blog post about writing and it somehow turned into yet another random contemplation about life. I guess I’ve been feeling rather reflective lately and to tell you the truth I really don’t know why. However, I think I better stop typing this post and start writing some revision cards unless I want to completely fail my exams.
What do you think about the statement “I’m only human”? Let me know in the comments.
Until next time keep dreaming x
