Somebody thought that my reasons for choosing Sett over other platforms were a bit "too simple".
That might actually be true but then, does that really matter? My main reason for choosing Sett is that I've been following Tynan for as long as I have and I want to support his project. Personally I don't think there is anything wrong with doing things just because you want to support people you respect but obviously other people are entitled to disagree.. As for respecting Tynan, if I didn't I wouldn't support the project. Or perhaps I should say that I respect the image he portraits. After all, I've never met him so I'm just going by his posts. That said, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that I think the person we see in the posts is probably the person he is. Colour me naive if you want to ;)
And yes, part of that is probably because I can identify with a lot of the things he writes. Too give some examples. I too went from being introverted to being extroverted. And I too like to keep growing and to constantly keep learning new things. It's why I am a photographer who does IT work but also has a background in security, economics and psychology.
When it comes to other points I'm still lagging behind a bit. For one, I don't have the discipline that he does. It's something that I am considering working on but who knows, perhaps I'll choose to keep procrastinating from time to time. Will that be a waste of time? Of course, that's a given. The question though is not if it will be a waste of time but if I care enough to change it. So far it seems I don't just yet but who knows, given time, I might change my mind. Then again, procrastination is a flexible term in my case as well. To me procrastinating is not doing what I'm supposed to be doing. That said, I'm usually learning something new when I'm procrastinating. Whether it's another language or just something that caught my fancy. So when I'm procrastinating I don't waste that time doing nothing at all but spending it towards one of my goals, continued education. On the other hand, I could just use that as an excuse not to give up on procrastination just yet.
So there you have it once again, my reasons for choosing Sett really are very simple. I could dream up some other reasons but then, why short change the truth?
I tend to get bored with things easily. Sometimes it takes a minute, sometimes it takes a year or two. It usually depends on what it is but in the end I get bored with pretty much everything. Including the place I live.
So to solve that I've got a new plan. Or technically two.
As I also get bored living in the same place for too long I tend to move a lot. If I look at the last 10 year's I've moved 17 times. not as much as some other people I know (seriously, where do they find the energy) but more than most. That said, I seriously dislike moving house. The packing, unpacking, etc... it's just not worth it. So I figured that life would be much easier if my house was mobile. And yes, that explains the title. My plan is to permanently move into a van or a RV.
Blogging is a form of my procrastination. Actually, it's one of my many forms of procrastination, but that's not the point. And the funny thing is, this post is going to be about procrastination.
So, you know where you're in your last year of college / high school, and you really don't want to do anything, so you don't do anything, and that's called "senioritis"?
Well, apparently there's something like that for sophomores and it's called the “sophomore slump". My friend said that she had it, and I was intrigued.
But, quite honestly, I believe that we are naturally lazy people, and we tend to not do things that are boring or tedious or difficult. Sometimes, it's just really nice to cruise through life.
Actually, it's an economic concept.
