I hope you enjoy this short story. I’m going to write it in diary form as it’s really the only way that I can write this one-shot. Enjoy!

October 17th

I’m hopeless.

I should be out. I should be doing things. I should be spending time with my family.

But I can’t get off the computer chair.

I can’t get away from the screen.

I sit there, mindlessly reading and typing out worthless rubbish to pass the time, to distract myself from the fact that there are responsibilities. I don’t know what to do with my life. I’ve accomplished my dream. Now, I’m lost and need something to occupy myself with. A purpose, a meaning.

I’m scared whenever I think of the seconds ticking away. Seconds that I will never be able to have again and redo. Seconds ticking away until the end of my life.

I want to change.

But I just can’t seem to get away. Like the TV – it draws me. I feel a need to do something, but I don’t know what. So, I occupy it with worthless, stupid rubbish. Defeats the purpose, I know, but I can’t seem to do anything else.

Maybe I’m just lazy. Maybe I don’t care enough about my time that I’m seriously wasting. No, I do. I just don’t know how to apply myself.
