Black clouds of ennui

Are people as confused as I or am I the only one who find it hard to sustain meaning to anything for a long time?

It has always been so. I find something unique and amusing and try it out for a few days to such an extent that it becomes a religion to me. I breath that thing, if at all that can be done and then one fine day when I wake up I see the familiar black clouds of ennui spreading its formless wings all over that amusing thing.

Being a reader, I did visit numbers of personal blogs and I do that even now. And in those blogs I saw my first G.I Joe. And thus I started playing with it. But the more frequently I played, the more I began to see those black clouds again (When will they stop coming over to me!!).
