Shower me with your concepts.

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.


The road to professional bumdom.

I just found out that our cable has 600 channels, unfortunately, half of the good channels,we did not subscribe to. So now I’m going to have to beg my parents to put in the good channels. Like Discovery Channel, E! (I need my daily source of hollywood “news”), and other channels that show the good series (Glee, Community, Heroes, Lost…. ehem: de gustibus non est disputandum.). But I think I’d need to find a job first because that would mean we would have to pay more to get these channels. Meh.

I’m still in my bum mode, although I have started Mission: Get Published which I now renamed Mission: Impossible. I scanned through some journal entries that were published by the journal I plan to submit my paper to. I have to change the whole layout of my thesis if I wanted to be publish. I wanted to know what kind of papers the journal accepted, and I decided to focus on organization first.

I haven’t gotten far, but I am progressing. I’ve outlined what I wanted to do (Well okay, in my head, but that is a start). I plan to apply for another Masters degree in 5 years, so by that time I hope to be published. That’s big dream, I know, but who knows. Anyway, I plan to study Political Communications, probably somewhere in the UK since that’s where they offer it. We’ll see.
