Apathy 10 At A Glance

September 20, 2016.  6:30 pm.  Just sitting around journalizing and keeping it clean.  I was thinking it’s how I resist doing things, and not the things I feel I should be doing, that’s interesting.  Because there’s not a lot I want to do.  It’s a lot more complicated than that.  I just downloaded Apathy 10.  A lot of cool new features.

But why not have a ‘who cares’ attitude when there’s nothing out there?  I mean there’s something.  There’s always something out there somewhere, but how important is it that you get on it right now?

Isn’t that an attitude you have to have?  Just click on it.  I like that fireworks effect.  Why waste time on trivials when you can waste time all the time?  On everything.  And how do you do that?  By doing absolutely nothing, Grandma!  It’s right here!

And that’s exactly what’s happening tonight. Crap, he thought, I hate babysitting.

Your influence may be greater than you know.  But it’ll never be that great so why don’t u worry about something else for a while?  Even a short little while.  It’s in ‘Settings—Procrastination’.

I keep forgetting to explain to my followers that I know all these poets.  And I don’t know why I do that.  But that, for me, is a very rewarding experience too.  Forgetting and the apathy involved in forgetting.  I got a Masters thingy because I write **** like this. That’s what I was trying to say.

What do I do now?  Keep going.  Unless it just looks like too much work.  I don’t really care anyway, do I?  I just love how it does that.

Thanks for stopping by a minute.  Seems a bit breezy right now.  If I only do 14 more words I win a prize so here goes.  That is great.

Apathy

I know. It’s terrible. It’s the scourge of the starving class.  Of the leisured class, working class, grocery cart class. It rides with those other gallivanting mysterions of the apocalypse boredom, indifference and the fine old wine of ennui.  It’s motto is in English.  Do Nothing.  Who cares?  Why bother?  It’s awful.  I hope you don’t catch it from me.

I try to keep myself interested by fantasizing about doing something.  You know.  Taking action.  Jumping up and getting on with it.  But that doesn’t even always work.  Thinking itself can be a bore.  Sometimes you just want to be an inert lump of goo because it’s all just too much.  Everything.  It’s impossible to conceive of the gargantuan effort it must have taken to get this far.  You must have made it because you’re here. But you’re certainly not interested in doing anything further.  No way!  Forget it!

CherryBlos2015Apathy’s so predictable.  You know it can’t last forever but you can hope.  But hope isn’t quite the right word because that itself would take some effort and that’s the last thing you want.  And it’s not like you might as well be dead because then you’d have no appreciation for the apathy that has you in its grip right now, as you live.  You can appreciate something without making any effort at all, so that’s no problem.

The question remains what is the way forward?  Or it could be if I wasn’t too lazy to ask it.  Nice try.  We’re not falling for that one.  I’m not budging until I know what’s going on here.
