The title of this post is a reference to one of my favourite Bonaparte songs, “3 Minutes in the Brain of Bonaparte”. It’s an amazing song. It helps me a lot when my mind is about to go bad, as was the case today. Let me vent/explain a little.
Today was quite the day… and I decided to make some changes to how I’m living and how I’ll prioritize things.
This morning, I helped my girlfriend move out. We’ve been together for three years and a few months now. She’s moving into her own apartment 344 km away from here. She’s done with her bachelor’s and wants to be closer to her family, which is valid. We’re going long-distance now.
My partner has been one of the best things that ever happened to me in my life. We had our lows and highs but in the end, we persevered and when I see how far she’s come in her life despite being a year younger than me, then I cannot help but feel inspired and motivated to get stuff done on my end as well.
On that note…
My studies didn’t progress at all in the past year(s). It doesn’t help that I’m bad with time management, sleep, health, and mental. It doesn’t help that I had other priorities… but I gotta grow up.
With the help of a friend, I’ve planned out the next semester:
Next semester, I’ll receive around 32 credits (including the ones I got so far) in English Studies, as well as about 30 credits in Philosophy. This, however, will mean that I have less time for hobbies of mine, such as the Debate Club, Literature Club, reading, shows, games, streaming, or even blogging.
I’ll probably have to severely limit the time I spend online.
I may not drop content creation completely but I do know that I won’t be able to stream on weekdays like I’ve been doing up until now… and I know that I won’t be streaming as often anymore… Maybe I’ll keep going on the weekends if time permits but it really depends on how my studies are progressing.
The same goes for blogging. I’ll have to see if I can prepare blog posts in advance on Sundays while dedicating Saturdays to studying. That probably could work but it will be rather difficult.
What does that mean for Indiecator?
Well,… I’ll try to keep the blog going until the new semester starts Mid-October. From then, onwards, I may stop posting daily, and instead, I’ll focus on my studies. We’ll have to see. I’ll most likely still vent or ramble every day and schedule it for the next day once I’m done with my studies per day…
Anyway, just a heads-up in case I ever stop completely. That was about 3 minutes in the brain of Magi, I guess. Go give that song a listen and sorry if I end up quitting the blog or something at some point.
I’ll still try to post often… but we’ll have to see how I’ll handle things on my own here.
