Ah hell, I don’t know what to say anymore. All I ever seem to do is repeat myself, which is mainly the reason why I’ve stopped writing for a good long while. I don’t miss it all that much, to be perfectly honest with you. Call me a man without motivation. I have a mouth, but I can’t be bothered to scream.

Day 25: “Social Media”
________________________________________
I don’t have much to say right now about social media, but today’s writing prompt has gotten me into an oversharing kind of mood. So today on Prosaic Shades of Gray, I present to you the first ever installment of a little something I’d like to call “TMI Tuesday”.

Day 23: “There are things”
________________________________________
There are many things that need to be said. Unfortunately, this February has been an especially busy month for me, and I haven’t found much time to sit down and write it all out. I’ve also neglected to visit my fellow challenge participants’ blogs for over a week now, which makes me kind of a jerk.

Day 13: “Incommunicado”
________________________________________
In the offices where I work, there is a motivational poster hung on a wall which has bothered me since the first day I saw it. I wish I had a better picture to offer to you, but the poster is located in an area where I really shouldn’t be taking pictures. The best I can do is post this low resolution image that I found online.

Day 11: “Succubus”
________________________________________
For years, I’ve been revisited by a recurring dream that always leaves me unsettled and frustrated when I wake up. I guess you could call it a nightmare. I never remember much about these dreams except for a few recurring details, some blurry impressions, and the emotions I’ve felt in broad strokes.

Day 7: “Hint, hint”
________________________________________

Back in 1996, I was a young kid in high school navigating the turbulent waves of adolescence when the now-legendary hip hop artist, Busta Rhymes, released his debut solo album, The Coming. This album was hot. There was a special quality to Busta’s music that made it strangely unifying among young fans of all different genres of music. I knew people my own age who swore they hated rap, but they couldn’t get enough of Busta’s first single, “Woo Hah!! Got You All in Check”.
