Productivity versus Procrastination

Vacation done a few weeks backs – only had two weeks – and reality with workdays are back. It would have been nice with an additional two weeks, it is what it is. The remaining weeks I will have to use before the end of the year and I’m thinking of taking a week or two in late September/early October and go solo hiking on a trail close to where I live.

One of the most beautiful houses I saw on the trip – Hotel in Åre, a town I really liked.

I thought the two week bicycle trip through Norway was going to be a good reboot of my life, having new energy to get back into all the things I procrastinate – I’m really good at that. So, the trip was awesome and never, despite days with really bad weather and broken legs, I wished or thought of ending it all and go home. I loved it and could have been out for an other two weeks, easily. (I will post a separate post about this trip)

Since I got home I have not done a single thing except going to work, eat, sleep and waste time on Youtube, catching up on all the channels I follow. All this while wishing to be more creative and do all the 1001 things I’d like to do. Well, I have outlined a few more chapters on a novel I’m writing on and started writing the first chapter – a slow process due to my lack of discipline.

Yesterday I went over my Moleskine planner and added a few activities: cooking food; time for writing; cleaning and the likes and so forth. I have done this before, many times but this time around I aim to keep it on a weekly basis, other than regular work, and fairly simple giving me lots of room to do nothing. Normally I over plan my days so there’s no room for relaxation. My overall goal in life right now is to reach simplicity – a stress free simple life, and there’s a plan for how to reach parts of it (yet again, I will write a post about this).

I basically struggle with all normal life’s daily activities – cleaning, doing dishes, cooking food, wash myself, sleep regular etcetera – and this shit is bringing me down and keep me from relaxing and being creative in the ways I’d like to. Yea, it’s a struggle and I don’t know where it comes from or how to really get rid of it. Psychology is complicated stuff…

Author: Alaska Frank

Who is Alaska Frank? Some would describe him as a strange fellow with really messed up ideas. Maybe that’s true as his scripts are pretty damn odd. And brutal. For me, Alaska Frank is my personal way to handle reality. He’s my alter ego I created long ago to match the way I feel. The name Alaska points to my cold heart and no feeling of regret or shame or any other feelings for that matter. Frank stands for my honesty to everyone in any given situation. Some might take this as something offensive and become mad or sad or both while others appreciate it. My alter ego Alaska Frank has grown over the years and has now, in recent times he has become a real person for me. Even if you can’t meet Alaska Frank in real person he exist within me and follows me everywhere and I can bring him out whenever I need him. This might sound odd, like I escape the reality, afraid to meet the harsh. This is not the case. Alaska Frank is me and has always been me. It’s just not until my later years I realized it. Call it an identity crisis. Or any other thing if you like. But the fact is – I am Alaska Frank. And will always be. And I identify myself with my own creation. The main occupation for Alaska is writing, mostly drama for the stage but at some occasions he also writes fiction novels and poetry. He is fond charmed by the things presented with an open mind, things created to think and philosophize about. A bit of odd dark humor thrown in to it does not hurt either. Alaska Frank is pretty open with his projects he’s working on and if you are interested you can read small and early synopsis-like presentations of a bunch of stories he has in the Upcoming project and Current Project-pages. Feel free to comment on everything you read on this blog, either it’s posts or pages. I will answer if there’s a question in hand. Something else you might want to know: Alaska Frank is from Sweden, hence his main language are not English. He writes in English for the simple reason to learn, so if you read any of the content on this blog feel free to comment on this matter.
