When I was still a student, whenever my thinking process got jammed, I would take a shower. I noticed that many of my grand ideas unfold themselves to me in the shower. It came to a point that I would bring my notebook and pen or cellphone with me to the shower to record my thoughts before the flew away.
There is that calmness that the water brings to me that clears up my mind and just allows ideas to flow freely in my mind. Yesterday I had a choice to make, whether or not to grab an opportunity that presented itself to me. Eventually, after much thinking, I decided to go for it. Yet I was stumped on how I would have to go through with it. I don’t want to jinx it so I’ve only told two people about it. But here’s something about it: I have to make a topic proposal.
I’ve been looking through my head for possible topics that won’t complicate life for me (and that doesn’t require me to stalk high profile individuals to gather my data. I think I’ve had enough of that). After thinking the whole day, I couldn’t come up with a specific topic that would both strike my interest and fulfill the requirements of said opportunity. I went to have a shower, and then it dawned onto me. Everything became clearer. And I now have a topic. It’s not a perfect topic, but I think it’s good enough for me to get by.
So that’s about it. I’m putting mission impossible aside for awhile to give me time to this mini project, which I shall call Mission: Long shot.
