How do I find the energy to do the things I love again? Beyond playing video games, I just don't find myself with the motivation to do very much.

I want to put my rich inner world into music and games and art and stories, but my brain feels like television static and I don't really want to move.


Static means noise. Unharmonical random sounds. Seemingly meaningless.

I have been doing tons of random for life. Felt omnipotent because i could do whatever. But... I could never compose music or really good texts.
So I read books on composition and writing - it is about patterns.

Then, i read classic lit. Distilled all patterns i could. Then, I _logged_ the static of days. And squeezed logs.
I learned what i do and why. Now i can start, stop and compose patterns. And keep momentum ^^
