Five-Hundred Word Challenge 1014: Exiting of the Room

And so it is that soon the exiting of the room must commence and the entering of the space outside of the room must conclude the events in between the exiting here and entering there. However, I don’t want to do it as there are other things that I want to do; namely, sitting here and doing nothing.

Perhaps there is a way for me to do both. If I can manage that, then perhaps I can get on with other things too. Perhaps there is a way to do both at once and that would be even better. However, none of these shall be considered. The only consideration that shall be had is the one that involves not leaving the room.

Now sure, it is much more pleasant out there than it is in here. Sure, there are things out there that I want to take care of and experience and all of those other things. There is a lot out there, actually. There also is a lot in here, but there is a lot out there. Still, I do not want to leave the room. I am kind of comfortable and besides, something something and so I shall keep on sitting here, doing very little and getting things out of the way in a manner that implies some sort of progress.

There’s a bit more light out there too, but here is where it is at, as they say. There are things around me that I can address right now and it’s a little uninviting, but again, I am kind of comfortable and so here is where I choose to situate myself in time and space. There is no other place I’d rather be, other than outside of this room of course.

Oh sure, I’d see more of the outside if I went outside, and sure, I can’t really see much of the room I’m in right now as I’m facing a computer monitor and need to spend time facing that, but I still am in this smaller, more constricted space. Even though outside has a bit more freedom to move about, I’m here, typing away and doing this thing and finding myself facing a thing that, in all honest, I don’t want to spend too much more of my day having to stare at, but changing this would require some effort.

I guess then what I should do is embrace the leaving of this room and entering what exists outside of this room, which is something outside of this room. I should probably face up to this. Instead of sitting here and hoping for continued comfort and avoiding things, I should go outside. I should see the outside world and experience what it is that is out there.

There is every possibility that I will do that sooner rather than later. Perhaps there are things out there that I can no longer put off, but of course there needs to be a journey from here to there.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 05:56:32

This was one of those ones that felt like a real struggle.
I think I was thinking too much about what I was writing and that affected the quality by more than I desired.

Written at home.
