In the midst of morning—I was weakened. Sleep was unknown to my nocturnal self; my eyes were flimsily flipping through the filaments that make up parts of my blueprints. These would later become ever-living, legendary, binary engraves on cyberspace, I was certain.
In the midst of noon—I was frazzled. Sleep was nearer to my diurnal recognition; my eyes wobbled as they fixed themselves to a tiny amber circle, far in the corner’s reach. This circular icon would later become the sole reason as to why I had done anything in the cyberspace at all; it was the reason as to why this particular draft would later be made seen by eyes other than mine—your eyes—everyone’s eyes.
My excitement was unrestrained as the moving pixels aimed, locked on their target and ultimately attacked. It was then the adrenaline raced against time, in a space of an atomic level. The spirit of my sleep-deprived self made a rush out of my soul, corresponding with a spirit of anxiety. I became alive again, though the signs of being alive were not so welcoming.
It was nerve-wrecking, unfathomable; it most definitely was a mistake.
In the midst of evening—I was exhausted. Sleep was next to being known by my remaining consciousness; many parts of my body worked out of coalition to revert that mistake. This was not the first and would not be the last instance of it; for certain it would later become a part of my never-ending experience in the cyberspace of blogs.
Colloquial Section, in case my short story sucks balls…
Hey ya’ll. This is just a little off-topic post that I would love to do once in a very long while, except for this time, I really need to do it because something (personally) hilarious happened.
So, after a long day of blogging, I’d spent a good few hours chatting away with some nab bloggers on Discord (come at me now) while scrolling through and checking my drafts for the 30 Day Anime Challenge. Yes, I am working on it lol! It has been four months now so, kill me~
Recently WordPress has made publishing a two-step process which is actually a nerve-preserving thing. I do however, still check my drafts on that page and right in the middle of each post tile is PUBLISH that you only need to click once. Don’t take my word for it though, I have not actually tried it on purpose but based on what happened last night, I’m almost certain that I would only need to click once.
And so it happened. Because it took a while for posts to load when scrolling up or down, there would be empty space on the page. I am a gamer so spamming click is like… in my blood, yo. I clicked the page randomly as if I was a top notch MOBA player, haha. I still hadn’t noticed anything and kept minding my own business, editing and writing up new posts for the challenge.
This was up until the moment I got a notification light on the top right corner. Naturally, I was excited. Who wouldn’t be when senpai notices you?!
But the unrestrained excitement turned into nervous rush as I became aware of the fact that I was notified a mistake of mine.
I’d accidentally published an almost blank draft~
So, I went RUSH B CYKA BLYAT to that specific post and reverted it back to hell’s abyss—where it belonged. Though, some things couldn’t be undone, such as how two people have seen the post—one from Twitter and the other one being Astralgemini. 😦
Oh and fix the address attached to your Gravatar name, it is of your old blog, derp!
My mistake did not go unnoticed as he almost immediately reached out to me in Discord. My shameful face should never be seen by anyone.
Though, it was this instance of me derping out which made our little Discord server temporarily alive once again after having been through an eternity of silence.
This is one of many rookie mistakes bloggers have probably done at least once in their lifetime, or in my case, still do today. But simple events can be made to look epic with power of literature. It is not my forte but I have enough to at least be able to twist some plots. Simple events can accumulate into bigger ones, creating a chain which makes up the time of your life.
I am dead certain that there will be so much more to discover in terms of stepping into the puddle. While I really do not want to get myself to that point in repeat, what doesn’t kill me makes me stronger.
Over to you readers: Have you accidentally published anything that you downright knew… you shouldn’t have?
Remember that published/sent items which have made you gone through second thoughts do not count.
This could be anything from private messages to dick picks in SnapChat (not that I’ve ever done it), or in most relevance, blog posts!
Oh well, what’s done is done. I’m going back to continue drafting my anime challenge.
Blog on! o/
