While this could go on the venting thread, I feel like many won't understanding what I'm feeling. Lately, I have been trying to find any form of escapism since it usually makes me feel better about what I'm currently going through, couple that with the fact that COVID-19 is also now in the way.

It's that lately, I keep having trouble with a focused mind. I don't know what's bothering me, this stupid virus or the fact that my life isn't as orderly as I would like to anymore, even I don't know exactly. Usually, RPs and imaginary stories in my head, as well as playing games I like, making me forget about the situation that I'm in currently usually makes me feel better. If nothing else works, I turn my mind toward Minecraft, the blocky nature of the game somehow comforts me in this trying time, maybe it's because most of the blocks aren't affected by gravity or due to the game having its own fictional dangers like monsters at night or going to a dimension that's literately filled with lava oceans.

Even though I'm not liking college, it somehow strangely became a form of escapism for me since while it is mandatory for me to do, it also gives me an escape from reality, funny how even your least favorite thing can bring you joy in ways that you wouldn't think. Weirdly enough as well, biology also became a form of escapism for me.

Here is one final point I need to make because I saw this very recently and it just grinds my gears that it's mostly unopposed, the fact that for whatever dumb reason, we can't enjoy a piece of entertainment for the sake of enjoying it. This is the part where I feel like many don't understand me and that's fine, but just let people forget about any bad things they are going through while using that entertainment and let them become lost in the fictional world. Is that really so much to ask? Let people be immersed in the world of what they are currently seeing when they want to be immersed.

This is all for now, if I see anything else that I feel like I need to mention here, I'll add to this blog. But as for right now, I'm going to look for ways to make myself feel better and look for more ways to immerse myself into whatever fictional world I choose to immerse in. Maybe I'll even create very short stories out of them if I feel like it.

EDIT: This is a Closed Blog because I just simply made this to vent out all I wanted to vent out without being nagged at. But I know that in time, I'm going to start enjoying things without thinking too deep into them, only deep enough for them to be enjoyable for the sake of them being enjoyable.

So... update on my current situation, having a dream and a nightmare completely unrelated to the situation I experienced yesterday somehow made me feel loads better. Heh, even dreams can ironically be some form of escapism if your mind feels like it. Anyway, as I have said before, if anything comes up that gets me down again and I know no one will be supportive, I'll add to this blog to vent it out. Despite sleeping at 1 AM, I feel very refreshed. Don't take your least favorite stuff for granted because one day, they might be the very answer that you're looking for.

I'm a bit nervous, my history final is coming up and matching questions are such pains in the neck since they can take up entire pages digitally and there are 30 of them, which I find a bit ridiculous, I can see 10, maybe 20 but 30? That's going way too far in my opinion. I know it's a final, but I have to say, it's unnatural to have this many 1 point questions on a history final.

Well, the possibility of a general Nintendo Direct being pushed back scares me because I'm going into summer break soon and I would've hoped to see what unrevealed games that Nintendo is planning to release this year. Oh well, at least I still have games to do 100% completion runs on.

You know what really grinds my gears? It's the fact that people aren't wearing masks when going out in public. Like, hello? Did you forget that there is still a freaking widespread virus going on? Just because stuff started to open up doesn't mean it's all over, you know.

Whoopdedoo, I'm going to enter yet another stressful college semester soon. When will this nightmare ever end?
