Are you me?
I know that in the opening post I sound very pessimistic but I could have been in a much worse situation.
When I found the afternoon cafe in its original form I had just gotten my first job. I was so wet behind the ears it's not even funny. Who I was then to who I am now is a world of difference. That's not to say it happened over night. Much like you I was in hibernation mode for a long time. It's only been within the past year that change really happened.
I don't know how, or when, or even why but I was suddenly tired of not having anything to my name. No goals, no accomplishments, I wanted to see what success felt like for once.
So here we are, I'm on an extremely bad downturn but I'm still surviving. Once I leave here again, and go back out into the fray, I'm going to give it my all.
What's amazing to note is that whether you fail or succeed in your efforts the path in front of you becomes much clearer and you move forward with a little more confidence the next time around.
Unlike you though, I've lost interest in anime completely. Video games as well for the most part. I was playing a snes earlier. I dunno, it feels that my real life goals completely overshadow anything video games or even 2D could give me. It's crazy, I know.
As for the internet. I am noticing that much like games back when I started losing interest, I find that I too can't stay on for too long. It's just a feeling of tediousness.
We'll see where that takes me.
