I have realized that I have a massive list of things I USED to like. In fact, they aree still things I like in theory, and if asked about my hobbies or things that I'm interested I would probably list any of these things... When the awful truth is that I havent done/actively participated/or read any of these things in more time than I caree to admit.
I can't say it's because of Jedi either, as you might think. I know some people lose interest in stuff when they get into a relationship, but that wasn't the case for me. I would say That I haven't had any interet in these things since about 2007 I know, it's weird that I can pinpoint it like that, right? All that happened in 2007 is that I bought my condo, started a new job, and shortly after started a grad program. I'd been blaming my lack of interest in things on the time the grad program took me, but it's now been a year and a half since I finished and still.... Nada.
So, in no particular order, things I used to like:
- mystery novels
- films that weren't chick flicks or Harry potter
- creative writing
- day trips to kitschy tourist attractions
- theater... Attending, performing, set crew... Nada
- cake decorating
- book club
- writing critique group (hard when you have nothing written)
- photography club
Damn! When did I become so boring?! I don't even have kids!(kidding! Mostly...)
I don't know where my zest for life has gone. I'm actually less depressed than I was during the periods of my life I was doing these activities.
... I think there's more, but I can't think of it now.
