March | In Retrospect

Song of the month: Green Light, Lorde

So much for productivity! March has come and gone, and I’m wracking my brain for what actually even happened in the past four weeks. I’ve not exactly been busy, though work and life have felt hectic in the run up to my holiday next week.

Nope. This feels more like mental fatigue.

I’m tired guys.

Tired of writing, tired of reading, tired of the Internet in general. It’s not quite as bad as when I felt like I needed an entire blogging break, but it is enough to make me want to shut off my laptop and sleep. I guess it doesn’t help that my entire job is spent online, The last thing I tend to want to do is then open up a blogging page and write content.

There’s also just a growing sense that I’m getting far too overwhelmed with new and voices and content on the Internet. Everything is so hard to digest and I honestly feel too tired to keep up with everything going on politically and socially right now. Don’t get me wrong, I care. I vent and argue plenty irl, but on here? Sometimes I feel like I’m one tiny voice lost in a sea of far more eloquent activists, journalist and writers. And I just can’t keep up right now.

Slight ramble over and out. I’m seriously hoping this mini break away from the Internet and ‘normal’ life will be pretty good and there are a fab group of guest writers who’ll be looking after TMM whilst I’m away too.

To end on a positive note, there has been some content I’ve been really proud of going up on the blog lately – you can check out the links below. When the writing flows, it flows for me and I guess I just need to recapture that asap!
