Journal of a Lost Soul Part CCCLXXXII

Leave a comment

It is a strange at the moment as once again my mind is going through a quiet place again where it is full of ideas about world building of Role-Playing World, e.g. creative phase, rather than overly worrying about work even on my day off.

This still something I have to get used to but a very pleasant feeling both for myself and people around me. It also means that I am starting to enjoy my life even my job even if at times I am getting stressed and angry at work. But that is perfectly normal as I now do not hold on to the anger or stress currently.

I also know I will go through times when the stress, anger and depression but now I do not overly worry about such days and not even worry that they are going to occur. As my depression will always be a part of my life and what I need to learn is how to cope with it and ride such dark days.

Also at the moment because I have stopped worrying overly about being creative I have started to be creative but I am not pushing or punishing myself for not being creative so for period of times I will not be creative which will be less and less of a problem for me. Much like sleeping once I stopped worrying about not sleeping my sleep pattern came back naturally so I am using the same trick with my creativity which seams to be working so far.

I have to smile at the moment these journal entries still show my emotions and moods are still little extreme at times but starting to slowly level out finally!

Social Networks: Big is Not Always Beautiful!

Leave a comment

I think I have said this before about the fact that smaller and less centralised social networks are far more personal and on a human scale than the larger global social networks. But I thought I would repeat that as I am leaving Twitter finally after a weeks deliberation and thoughts of it real usefulness to my life in general.

One conclusion I have come to about the global social networks like Facebook, Twitter and the such is that big is not always beautiful or functional in the case of social networks.

At the start such social networks served a real useful function of bringing people together over the internet and served a real beneficial function of creating real communities on the internet. But as they have grown they have become far too big to a point now they cannot function as they did in the early days in so much they have become far too impersonal and difficult for one individual to comprehend the sheer scale of the social network itself.

In the end the size of these social networks has destroyed there usefulness as social networks as people in every day life really only deal with relatively few people on a daily basis and cannot really cope of copperhead the sheer number of people on such large social networks like Facebook or Twitter.

My personal view the future of social networks should not be the monoliths like Facebook or Twitter but more decentralized social networks which work on a far more smaller and manageable level so people can cope and comprehend what is going on the social networks in question.

Starting to Question Twitter’s Usefulness!

Leave a comment

I have started to question just how useful and usable Twitter is as both social web site and place to get news as now it is starting to become a place much like Facebook has become full of useless trivial remarks, useless information and worse of all becoming a place where people troll, bully and abuse other people. Add to this even with the people I follow or follow me can also be accused of spreading hate and most definitely distorted and uninformed propaganda to promote their causes almost at any cost.

What really got me thinking especially recently was the fact that Robin William’s daughter had to leave Twitter because of the abuse from trolls and basically unthinking, vindictive people who thought it was quite acceptable to throw abusive remarks and pictures at her.

I have been slowly backing away from Twitter in past few year or so to a point now I really only now use it to post links to my blog and much like Facebook before it, it has not generated that many hits on my blog other than it distorts the actual number of followers I have on my blog by including my Twitter users as my blog followers.

I must not only one who is starting to question the validity of the large social networks like Facebook and Twitter to be called social networks any more and I must not be only one to notice they have become places where people, companies and groups either out to sell their products, promote their political views even spread their messages of hate and intolerance.

Twitter much like Facebook before it is starting to fail as a social network much as did Facebook has done before it in so much it now not what you call a social network any more which promotes social interaction which makes it’s very existence in it’s present form very questionable indeed.

But unlike Facebook I will think long and hard about if I leave Twitter as it may be failing like Facebook but it is not as bad as Facebook yet!

We Need More Idealists and Dreamers!

Leave a comment

Our modern world needs more idealists and dreamers to move forward as both my tilt at windmills or dream impossible dreams but each can bring change and new ideas from their views and dreams.

There is this modern view we should keep our feet on the ground and both idealists and dreamers waste their time but this from a stance of fear and ignorance of those who say it who have forgotten that it was idealists and dreamers who created the world around them!

If it were no for such people there would be no new ideas no change and the world, much as it is currently, will grind to a stop eventually die. They give society a spark of innovation, imagination even food for thought to move on to something new.

So the next time you put down an idealist or dreamer stop and remember it has been such people who got you were you are now!

The One Rule!

Leave a comment

Currently there is only one rule how I write and that is to write from the heart and spontaneously as ideas make themselves known in my own mind, especially the entries in this journal.

It sort of works for me but does mean sometimes the topics either jump around or worked to death on the journal but my mind has never been very focused if anything jumps from subject to subject in very quick succession.

But for me writing from the heart is working so for short time I will keep doing it.

The Modern World Thrives on the Negative!

Leave a comment

From my own observations of the world through social networks on line to daily interaction of people our modern world seams to thrive on the negative be it hate, anger, discrimination and even ignorance. Everyone around me accept this as the normal state of affairs and very acceptable regardless of the fact such behaviour has never been acceptable in any civilised society in the past decades.

It is as if people do not care any more to lazy to do something about it to a point they just go along with everyone else in spreading such negative views, opinions and the such. Some are just pain stupid to believe and not question what is told them.

So now we have surrounded ourselves in a world full of hate, anger and discrimination driven by a media which feeds off it and people who are the targets of such negative thought and actions are now starting to suffer or even die because of this negativity.

And what do people do about it?

Nothing just sit there making the right noises but in the background still feed the hate, anger and discrimination which caused the deaths in the first place on top of which never taking responsibility for their own actions.

People simply find it easier to have negative and destructive thoughts in our modern world as positive thoughts would mean they would have to do something and actually be sociable to other human beings.

When the hate, anger and discrimination visits their own lives all I will say you made your own bed as you did nothing when it happened to others so why should you now expect some to lift a finger to help you?

I know this is a hard attitude but I am slowly getting fed up of large majority of the people around me because their inaction and lack of caring is killing off a once rich society leaving in place a grey shadow full of fear, hate and death!

Journal of a Lost Soul Part CCCLXXXI

Leave a comment

Has not been the best few weeks for me as magic to life both at home and work have gone mostly because of the people around me sort of making me feel down and annoyed. This regardless of the fact that I am basically calm and contented inside.

I think the anger reflects the world we have created for ourselves which is an angry and confrontational world which those nice and relaxed people have no real place in it any more. So for me it is getting more and more difficult to exist in such a world as it constantly fires my depression even when I am on the anti-depressants.

After this week I have been feeling totally disconnected with both the world and people around to a point I really do not want to interact with it any more as both are not worth the trouble. Just means I have been feeling lost the last few days to a point all I want to do is sit around and do nothing regardless I have so much I want to do.

There is always a faint hope next week will be better!
