Hi, Hey, Hello!
I used to be a huge doodler.
Whenever I found my mind wandering or I was bored on the phone I would find a pen and a scrap piece of paper and I would end up doodling. My doodles always looked the same. They were always rather randomly some variation of a cube.
I could monitor my boredom through them though. The more effort that I put into them the more complicated the cube looked. There would be shading involved, the size of them would differ greatly. There was a whole collection of them.
I was on Timehop the other day and I had taken a picture of a page that was just full of my random doodles and I realised something. I haven’t done that for ages. I fully cannot remember the last time I found my pen just etching out a cube of some description onto a piece of paper. Because I haven’t done it months.
I don’t know quite when I stopped. To be honest, I didn’t even realise I had stopped. I do know that I had been doing it for as long as I could remember whenever I found my mind wandering, so did my pen. But it’s a habit I unintentionally broke.
There are so many other habits that I could have broken, but for some reason that is the one that went. Or at least it’s the one that I know for sure has just gone somewhere.
So, yeah I’m not much of a doodler these days. It’s not my creative outlet anymore. Or in the main area where I found myself doodling I just don’t have the time anymore…
