Five-Hundred Word Challenge 669: Too Long in Front of the Computer

I think I’ve spent far too long in front of the computer at this stage.

I’m not talking about the years of my life, but only the morning of this morning. Fixing up a whole lot of music sot hat it’s titled correctly, and the correct artists are listed. It was a long, lengthy and long process and now I soon will be commencing the shift of the day of work and need a break from the screen but am unable to get one at the moment. Soon work will start and I need to be ready and primed in order to do my job and all that other stuff. Need to have lunch too. Which will come first?

Maybe it will be good to do both at once. People can listen to me eat whilst I listen to them refusing to pay attention. It works out. Everyone wins. Maybe this is indeed the best idea I’ve had in a long time.

Better yet: maybe I should just disappear into my computer. Jump into the screen and surf the world wide web and see what lies out there for me. Become one with the systems. All that kind of stuff. Seems like fantasy in science fiction, but maybe it could be done. It would be an experience, that’s for sure.

Of course, if I were to attempt to do that then I’d probably injure myself and severely damage the computer. I need the computer working and I’d rather avoid injuring myself where I can, as I much prefer not to be injured more than I already am. Makes things a bit easier.

Maybe I won’t do that. Maybe instead I’ll just get set up and read for a little while whilst I eat food. That way I can go into work feeling a bit more satisfied, or something.

Maybe instead of going into work I should just call in sick and go for a cycle and explore the area for a bit. I’ve cycled along The Cooks River quite a few times, but there’s nothing to say that I can’t cycle along it more. In fact, that might just be a good idea… if it didn’t mean I would not earn enough to survive, that is.

I think that instead of doing all of that I’ll just go for… wait. I will do the eat and read thing, but that means I’ll leave the computer for a period of time. How will it feel? Maybe it’ll feel lonely. It might have been enjoying this shared time together. I should keep that in mind.

I think I’m overthinking this and should just get on with my life and worry about getting ready for work when necessary.

Perhaps the computer has spent too much time around me.

Anyway, now that I’ve rambled about very little for long enough I am going to make myself something to eat. It’s around lunchtime now and I should probably be closer to full than empty. Probably.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 06:57:02

One of those writings where I feel I do well for time but don’t explore stuff enough.

Written at home.
