I am tied to the bed but still blogging

Sometimes when I wake up, I’m actually not in bed. I’m walking to the bathroom, and sometimes I’m already inside. I open my eyes and I’m just as surprised as you are reading this. Just as surprised as I was when I thought I hated McDonalds.

I thought I was in bed, and there I am.

I’m doing it because I’m so used to doing it, it’s my daily routine. I wake up, I walk to the bathroom.

That’s it.

It’s what I do every single day. I can do it with my eyes closed, and I can even do it in my sleep.


That’s why I decided to be impulsive. Stop the daily routines for a while. Be different. Be a little insane.

When we act different, we think different, and we come up with different ideas.

Finally, we’re a little creative.

Finally, we’re unique. And finally, you’re impressed.

Why are you impressed?

It’s really all about experiencing something you didn’t expect. You’re experiencing more than you expected. That’s why you’re impressed.

Now, you’re still reading, looking for words describing me tied to the bed. You won’t find them, or maybe you will? But are you still impressed if you don’t find what you’re looking for, but something completely different?

New routines

I feel different. Although I’m still in the bathroom, I’m awake and the only thing different is that I’m changing my blogging routine. I’m changing it from not knowing when I’ll be publishing, to telling you that I’ll be publishing my new stories every monday, wednesday and friday. Three times a week. It’s going to be my routine. And sometimes I’m even going to be adding a blurb about my next blog post as well, so you’ll know what to expect.

I learned this from Blogging Bookshelf, and I sort of read it as soon as I got out of bed. Although I’m aware of the dangers of reading email before breakfast.

You never know what will happen

I’m not kidding. Once in a while I add impulsive behavior to whatever I’m doing. It’s just because I want to see what I’ll end up with. That’s why I’m tied to the bed (well, not literary).

I remember when I was attending the university, I had to take the bus every day. Everything was identical. 8 am, 3 pm. The bus, the people, and me. But then, I suddenly asked myself, what would happen if I added impulsive behavior to the trip, what would happen? Well, all I did was ring the bell on the bus at a completely different stop. And I had to walk a lot further than I was used to. But it was different.

On this trip I looked at houses I hadn’t seen before. I discovered that it was a lot colder than I was used to, and I had a lot more time to think.

It was awesome.

    Jens, I love how you ended this post, with the story about getting off the bus early. “It was awesome.” I really liked that!

    And good luck with your new posting routine! I’ve found that that schedule (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) is great for me because it’s enough to keep me busy and keep my mind always working, but not so much that it becomes overwhelming. I look forward to your updates!

    • Hi Tristan,

      Your schedule will be perfect for me. Until now I’ve just been writing new posts when I feel I have the time. But having this schedule I feel like I’m in control and will be planning my new posts in a better way.

      Thanks a lot for your comment.

    You’ve a given me an excellent idea! I love your kind of thinking! I should also try something different on how the way I do things at home and at office. I’m pretty sure this will be great.
