(no subject)

I've barely written in here lately. I used to manage an entry a day, but now two weeks of November have passed and this is only my sixth entry. Worse still, none of my five previous entries have been of any decent calibre. I don't quite understand this. Have I really run out of things to talk about? I feel as if I am in a slump, and that my knowledge, writing, and opinions are woefully inadequate. That's why I haven't continued my political series: I feel a thorough lack of confidence in my knowledge and consider it to have entirely not enough depth or supporting logic and evidence. If there is one thing I desire, it is that I know a broad array of facts from which I can draw educated and intelligent opinions. However, I feel I only know the bare basics in most topics. When I write about U2 setlists, I can write with great knowledge and cite all kinds of facts in drawing my connections, and if I don't know something off the top of my head, I know exactly where to do research. I want to be able to do this with the other topics that interest me, and it's frustrating me that I seem to have fallen into such a slump.

I'm honestly not sure what to do or where to start. I feel the need to progress and to learn rather than being stuck in what I perceive as intellectual worthlessness. I want to not only return to my old self, regularly writing entries about important and serious topics, but to improve on that with opinions that are more fleshed out with substantial support and evidence. I particularly wish to return to my former levels of theological thought and involvement, and to enhance my historical knowledge. I wish I knew where to go to do that like I can with U2 setlists.

So that was another Worthless Axver November Entry. Have a good one, folks.
