Smoking outside

So i was trying to make a new post. But this day has been incredibly boring since I spent most of it lying in a couch trying to find something interesting to do on my laptop. Internet was way more fun back in the days when you connected with a modem. You always knew exactly what sites to visit and what to do. But now, being used to the internet, it's getting harder and harder to find something interesting. It's all the same. You visit some news sites, read the latest articles on cracked, watch a couple of youtube videos and drop a visit on facebook. And then you're done. The internet were better back when you could store hundreds of pixelated porn pictures on your secret 3.5" floppy disk. Marked "Games".

Anywho, since staring on an empty "New post" window for half an hour didn't really help, I decided to go out and take a cigarette. And I must say, smoking in the middle of the night (0:45 am here right now) is so frigging relaxing. You sit outside, alone, light your fag with a match, and just relax. The only sound you hear is from distant cars and the wind blowing in the trees. This must be my favorite part of the day. Everything is just so... calm. There's no worries, nothing to be done, nothing at all except you and your cigarette. I tried to think about something to write about, I really did, but my mind kept drifting away. I noticed things like how the city lights colors the cloudy sky orange. How beautiful the dark orange glow is when it's slowly turning the tobacco into ashes. How the smoke make tiny, twirling, strings in the air. How the air had the smell of rain in it. And before I knew it, my smoke break was over. And I hadn't found a single thing to write about. But I did find that even the smallest things in our life can be beautiful.

Well, I'm going to sleep now. Might have something fun too write about tomorrow. But then again, I might not. Be well.

  1. You should try to give up pal, before it's too late. Not that I don't smoke like a chimney...

  2. Smoking at night is one of the things that makes me want to take up smoking. In that situation just take a brew as well, and you'll find the secrets to life in that bottle.

  4. I also smoke outside a lot at night, its an awfully inspiring and beautiful time. I live on a really busy street whats constantly noisy but at 1-2am its empty and just standing outside on my porch with a cigarette staring over the Thames (I live on a hill) and seeing all the lights of London is perfect-o!

  7. I do this atleast once every night, it really helps you clear your mind. Nothing beats a smooth cool summer night and a cigarette to go with it. Followed+

    i can relate to the smoking outside except i don't smoke. but looking up into a beautiful clear sky with bright vibrant stars and that feeling of cosmos can be humbling

  21. I might not be a smoker myself, but I see where you're coming from. That moment where it's just you, the wind, and the noises from the city. There's something extremely relaxing about it, whether it's with a cigarette, a drink, or nothing at all. Nice post :)

  26. I agree with Electric and Inverse here. Even when you don't have anything to talk about, it seems you have something worthwhile to say.
