I am consumed. Completely consumed. Yet again I should say. I go through cycles of consumption, so to speak. Beloved says it’s not really that my thoughts and time are consumed, although I do become rather singular in my focus. Instead he says the word to use is obsessed.
There may be some truth to this as I do tend to get rather caught up and entangled with an interest. So much so that I have been known to miss appointments, miss time with friends and forget to meet deadlines. So yes maybe consumed doesn’t do this justice, perhaps insanely obsessed works better.
I can’t recall a time in life where I didn’t find something that completely caught my attention and demanded that I learn more or explore more. It’s makes the learning or exploring rather easy, however it means that other things shift out of focus at times.
Beloved believes it’s because I get bored relatively easy, like he does. Where he involves himself in several different things at the same time, I seem to fixate on one. I work my way through whatever has caught my fancy until I’ve learned all I can or have grown bored with it. Then I move onto the next fascination.
So perhaps you could say I’m consumed with my shiftng Obessions.
