Racism is a belief that all people of a certain ethnicity fall into the same role, or are essentially the same. Racist people usually have negative beliefs about those who are different from them, and they allow their lives to revolve around that false belief as truth. It is sad to realize and hard to believe for some, but racism is heavily engrained into society today, it doesn’t really matter where or how but there seems to be no escape from the occasional run in with racism. I can admit that growing up as a child and even as an adult I have encountered racism, but I have never allowed it to have any type of lasting or even poignant effect on my life. In the grand scope of things racism is pretty insignificant, if someone can generalize an entire group based on a false belief, then they are not worth the time it takes to deal with their problems. Not to say that racism can’t be at times hurtful, but I have grown to treat it as the foolishness that it is, you don’t feed foolishness, you ignore it or treat it as it deserves to be treated. It is far too often often these days that people seem to take two extremely polarizing stances on racism, they either think it doesn’t exist, or they think it controls everything, but it is rare that people understand that it is there and actually take time to get around it. I understand that in some places on this planet, racism is so bad that it can be almost debilitating, but I am confident that there is always a way to free yourself from the confines of a terrible situation or belief. It is sad that in the age we live, people still hold on to such foolish beliefs about others, but I am sure that someday soon racism will be a thing of the past.
Writer’s block is a phenomena, in which a writer seems to be completely devoid of ideas. I fell like it is generally believed that a writer would write about writer’s block when going through it, but I actually had an idea to write about this topic for a while, and I am finally following through. Writer’s block is something that everyone who is going through a creative process faces at some point. Since writer’s block is an incredibly annoying companion to have around when trying to create, it is important to find ways to combat it. I have faced off with writer’s block on many occasions, and through the years, I have found two major ways to rid myself of the inconvenience. The first method I use to get over writer’s block is to take a short break from the task I am trying to complete. I have noticed that it is easier to think when doing mundane tasks, so I like to go run some standard chores in order to get my mind back in motion. The second method I like to employ for writer’s block is usually the first thing I try when the block occurs, that method is brainstorming. With brainstorming, unlike my other method, I am attacking the writer’s block head on. While brainstorming is not the best way to beat writer’s block, it is extremely helpful in coming up with great ideas for the future, and essentially bypassing the possibility of writer’s block. Writer’s block is an adversary that every writer will face in life, it is never fun to face it, but with the right tools it is definitely easily beatable.
Today is one of those days that I feel like just resting, it may be due to my activities from yesterday, but I am completely drained. It is weird that at times it can be hard to distinguish between being lazy and being tired, both feelings are similar, but both are mentally contended with differently. I would like to say that I am tired since I did have a busy day and I don’t exactly have anything notable to do today, but tiredness could be considered a form of laziness if I have tasks that need to be completed eventually. I guess my feelings today go back to the fact that I have a difficult time relaxing, so if I have task that need completion and I am in a location where I can complete these tasks, I would rather not leave them undone. Laziness is the unwillingness to do work or expend energy, and tiredness is the lack of energy, while I have an abundance of mental energy at the moment, physically I am drained. I guess I can conclude that I am just tired, so instead of worrying about what I could be doing, I will relax and rest up for a more productive day tomorrow.
The reason I write this blog is to keep my brain from dying so to speak. In my opinion there are three ways to keep your mind sharp, reading, writing, and mathematics. As you may have noticed from reading this blog, I have a lot of ideas, too many to count, this blog is basically a written translation of my thoughts. I have found that coming up with different topics everyday is harder than I realized, while I do have enough ideas in mind to write about, it would be majorly unwise to post my unfiltered thoughts. Throughout the year as I continue to post on this page I may post some editorials, some reviews, and even videos. I will definitely end up returning to the more interesting topics, most likely due to a change in my views of a subject, or newly found data, so this blog should probably be named “365 Posts” rather than topics. I hope you will follow along throughout the year, and join me as I write about random musings. I realize this should have been my first post, but I didn’t really think about it until I got this far. I am a creative writer and I just wanted to give myself a reason to write everyday. I hope in reading this blog you are enriched in some way, anyhow, thanks for reading.
