Stream of consciousness
It’s night time. My area is quieter. Fewer cars and fewer people. Silence. One cannot simply listen to music all the time. The brain needs silence, too. I’ve been trying to draw but I lose interest quickly. Listening to outside noises. A car passes by, blasting loud music. I hear music coming from outside. It’s not the car, it’s something bigger. Music stopped. Someone is whistling. I whistle when I’m in a good mood. A dog barks. There’s a park across the street and people take their dogs there.
Drowned the silence in music. My dear music is so good for the soul. But I will return to silence later when it’s even quieter than before. Now it’s time to absorb all these sounds and let my imagination flow. I’m listening to a compilation someone posted on YouTube. It features Hibou, Wild Nothing, Pinkshinyultrablast, DIIV, Yppah etc
I did the exercise challenge, it was a bit hard but it feels good to be tired. I have been doing 25 crunches, exercising my arms and running in the same place. I have two medium sized machines for doing crunches, exercising arms and legs, thighs, too. They were very cheap and they come in handy now. It’s easier to work out this way.
I’ve been drinking plenty of water, tea, and coffee. I have been smoking 2 or 3 cigarettes a day, which is good. I wish I could stop altogether. It’s something I have been putting off but that I have to deal with it one of these days. Smoking is terrible for you but I really like it. People with mental illness tend to smoke more. Every hospital psych ward has a room for smokers and you would see many people there. I found this intro to an article about mental illness and smoking:
I also found this article about heavy marijuana use and dopamine. I was not happy to read that but it figures.when you overuse something, there are bound to be consequences.
