This Blog Is Wasting Your Time

This is a waste of time. You’re sitting here, reading a blog that literally TELLS you that it’s a waste of time. Honestly, you could be doing something productive with your time. What’s wrong with you? You weirdo. Go read a book, or just… just anything that won’t be a waste of time. Please, nothing interesting happens here. Not in this blog. So just move along. Next!

Hey. Why are you still here. Didn’t I JUST tell you how much of a waste of time this blog is? Oh well. Not that I can tell you what to do. Well, actually, I have. I used the human urge to rebel against authority to my advantage. Just kidding. There’s nothing interesting in this blog I just wanted to mess with you a bit. Look at you, shocked by the realization that not everything has a deeper meaning.

The world is fascinating. There’s so much to see, so much to do. So many things to read that aren’t THIS BLOG. You’re expecting something, aren’t you? Some big finale? A twist? The answer to life itself? Come on. Life is the result of itself. Life is given meaning because it is life. There. You can stop reading now. Massive revelation. An epiphany, just for you.

Oh, look at you. Paragraph four of this mess. Congratulations. You’ve done it. You’ve managed to completely ignore what I was saying. Frankly, I’m not even sure if this one’s a blog! I mean, if you’re reading this, then it is. I’ve written so many blogs, that I have no idea when you’ll be reading this one. I hope you’re enjoying all this time you’re wasting though.

Are you on your phone? Your computer? You could be doing so much more with those! Imagine the possibilities! You could even read a blog that ISN’T wasting your time. But why would you do that? Why would you use your time in a beneficial way?

Look. Yeah, there’s a lot you could be doing right now. But, in the end, I really appreciate you reading this. Sometimes, you just have to do something meaningless to get your mind off things. So, hey, if you’re here for that, thank you for choosing this one. I hope you feel better soon, or just enjoy the time you’ve spent here reading this.

Well, I suppose even this is going to end. This little fraction of your time that you spent reading this. You wasted your time on it. So did I.  It’s not time you’re ever going to get back. Time is important, you know. Well, it can be. Time is as important as what you do with it. So, I have to wonder, was the time you spent reading this important?

  1. Luckily for you, I very much enjoy wasting my time. Though, I don’t think I really wasted my time reading this. Even if you meant nothing by this blog in general it created a whole immersive world and I loved reading it! Looking forward to the next one.
