so this is totally obnoxious but I would just say, without knowing much of anything about your personal life, but you seem very devoted to your consumption of media (as am I) and have a very regulated system of going through books, movies, and music. I've noted for kind of a while that you don't seem as psyched about a lot of the stuff you review; the majority of your outlook on it is sort of 'eh'
I would just say that a lot of people hold on hard to routine... not just routine to get through the workday and take care of chores and sh*t that needs to be done, but even routine in free time, pursuing hobbies and interests and such.
I think that routine is sort of the tether that keeps people occupied and living life with purpose, but *everyone* at some point comes to this point in their life where everything about their routine feels tiresome, useless, meaningless. You have to find something different to shake your brain up.
this may have you rolling your eyes, but physical activity is the best. I'm a serial runner, and whether you run (or exercise in any form) or not, I think when one is stressed there is almost nothing better than going for a run. bring music and just pound the pavement... don't keep time or worry about how successful you are... just blow yourself out. I've found that after a tough day, I can *really* successfully blow off steam by running... and the more stressed I am, the harder I run.
but I dunno... the hardest point is the "jumping-off" point. you know you should try something new but don't want to get started. whatever it is that's new is scary... but all it takes is just doing it and you realize that it's not scary at all. so who knows what that would be that might work for you... but I think if you're doing something that engages your body... OR doing something that engages your social skills (I know, even scarier!)... you're shaking your brain up.
sticking to your solitary routines will *NOT* make things better. don't push through that. take a trip... drive to Oklahoma . ummm... do you like dogs? volunteer at an animal shelter.
OK, I'll shut up. I've been stuck in bad places before. You have to fight to change things up to break out.
