Me & My Muse – Day 352: Yawns and Smiles

First of all, the yawns.  I am yawning because I stayed up late last night.  What was I doing?  I actually came across this site that uncovered some truths about a popular artist that I listen to.  After what I read, I don’t know if I want to listen to this artist again.

Now for the smiles.  I finished my shaker shift at the “pizza pit” and I now have the rest of this day off and tomorrow off.  Having that said, I will definitely be spending tomorrow in a wise manner.

While I am typing this, I can’t help but feel like my confidence is being drained.  Fortunately, it’s not all of my confidence, since I have my unshakable confidence.  What is the reason of this?


Muse:  Kyle!

Oh!  That’s why!  It’s the Shy Muse!  What are you doing here?  I’m surprised that you have enough confidence to be standing here, talking to me…

Muse:  …Um…  (Muse’s face begins to turn red)

Ghost Muse:  Kyle?   What are you doing?  Oh!  It’s the Shy Muse!  What is she doing here?

Muse:  Anyway…bye!

*Muse disappears in a bright flash*

What was that all about?

Ghost Muse:  I don’t know, but I think that she’s starting to get worse.

How so?

Ghost Muse:  Didn’t you see it?  There was a faint aura around her!

The confidence void…It’s growing bigger and bigger.  I know that’s what it is.  And because of the larger void, it’s starting to outgrow her, requiring more and more confidence to exist…

Ghost Muse:  That would explain why she could visit you, right?

Exactly.  The void only drains her confidence when she’s around other people, thus making her perpetually shy.

Ghost Muse:  If only we could free her from it!  She would be so happy!

Unfortunately, we can’t right now.  I feel like the void is protecting her…

Ghost Muse:  From what?

Embarrassment.  Failure.  Doubt.  It’s doing this all while it’s helping itself to as much confidence as it likes!

Ghost Muse:  A black hole that feeds on confidence.  I’d like to know how that void came into being…

Me too.  But for now, let’s sleep on it.

Ghost Muse:  Okay.  Enjoy your evening and tomorrow off!


I will.  Tonight is going to be relieving, not having to copy any more  music.

Today’s high is going to be 74 degrees and the silver lining is having the rest of the day off.

To those of you who like having free time, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse: *sob*  I blew it!  I blew it again!  Why can’t I ever talk to him face to face!  It’s because I’m shy…I HATE being shy!  Waaaaaahhhh!!!

*Shy Muse’s house violently tremors as the void grows bigger and bigger, beginning to overshadow her*
