I don't really get what you're saying. You lost your house?

This seems a bit like vaguebooking to me.  :P

That's it! That's the word I was looking for.

RR, if you're going through some rough times (which is how I interpreted the OP), and want some feedback or support, it's ok to talk plainly - I think there's some very empathetic people here. You may be a very introspective person (I am the same), but indulging it during stress can lead to greater depression. Try to stand back from the situation and analyze it as if you were an observer; discuss it rationally.

Vaguebooking...I wasn't familiar with that before.

I don't like vague messages, but they perk up my curiosity. Interesting in themselves.

I think you have made a proper self-diagnosis. You can't maintain the energy/interest level up to do what you plan/want to do because you are wasting all your energy on introspection. Just do it. Get 'er done.

I find it difficult, at times, to maintain momentum over things to which I wish to aspire. The deed I've held to the house of hope I so fervently to occupy has slipped beyond my grasp. What's worse, the hand that dropped the paper down the stormdrain knew the fruit of all it's labor. What good is a deed to housing not my own? And so, with such a frequent repitition, do I turn to other projefts. I, perhaps am just an introspective individual, with tad too much an introspective mind.

Yet nothing really changes. I am speaking of my nature, tending towards impulse as it is. But might that fault of mine still lead to greater changes? With hope, it will.
Time for Stevil's translator service

RenegeReversi, has lost hope towards achieving a goal.
He is frustrated because finds himself often distracted by other things, hence not moving towards his goal, possibly moving away.

With regards to
"I, perhaps am just an introspective individual, with tad too much an introspective mind."
I am unsure if he is stating that his goal is unachievable because he is too introspective, for example, following church doctrine would be difficult for a person with opinions of their own or maybe he doubts himself and his abilities thus talks himself out of the hope of achievement.
Or whether he is stating that he should just move on and not dwell on his lost goal.
 ???

Is that how others read it?

Stevil hit the nail precisely on its head, I fear.

I can speak English, Japanese, Elvish and a bit of Klinganese. But i cannot translate this. Thanks, Stevil!

Couldn't be done - Tim Finn

We had no idea that it couldn't be done
And we needed to find a like minded someone
Who had no idea that it couldn't be done
...

Now the coast is clear and the case has been won
And we've lost our fear that it couldn't be done
All we needed to find a like minded someone
Who had no idea it couldn't be done, no idea
Who said it couldn't be done

A nice response to the OP, Stevil.  Well played.

Hey, I wasn't far off. Partial credit? :)

Anyway, not trying to downplay how you're feeling. I'm sorry you are, and I've been there. Personally, I moved on to another goal, and later realized the original one wasn't what I wanted anymore anyway (how's that for being vague?)

Wow Stevil, I'm impressed ;D

That's the thing about goal, not all are worth keeping. If there aren't any very clear answers it's because it probably is time to pack up and move on.

I actually feel a little better about it right now. I've started a project: writing a book about finance economics, of which I have a good background in.
