You know that feeling you get when you have so much to say and do,but you’re not really sure how to say it or what to do?
Well that’s me right now; a whole bunch of non-coherent thoughts and ideas that need some sense made of them. It’s almost 12 at night and as I prepare to finally put my brain to rest,I just can’t. If you could watch my brain for 10 min, you would probably be freaked out. Seriously. In there, it probably looks like an Internet browser with Gmail, Pinterest, WordPress, Facebook and Quickbooks tabs open. You jump from one to the other to check which one is loading faster and an hour later you’ve done nothing. Zip. Zilch.nada.
And so I am decreeing it officially, brain dump time!!
Brain dump #1
To start with, I have a few great blog ideas, but they are all half concocted in my mind right now, waiting to be fully percolated before I can give birth to them. They keep fading in and out and that has been highly annoying.
Brain dump #2
The past 3 months have been quite hectic especially the last month with me studying for my finals.Phew.Thank God it’s over.With the end of 2016 approaching fast, I can’t help but think about what I need to do in the future. Whether I want to continue to study here or start preparing for USMLE abroad. Though I am 99% percent sure of my decision, there is still that lingering doubt that pops up every time I try to sleep. Decisions, decisions.
Brain dump #3
I have always thought of living an extraordinary life filled with travel and people and crazy adventures, rather than the low-key, under-the-radar, stay-at-home kind of life, being stuck in a place with a domineering husband and rotten routines. But there are also times when I feel that you don’t need a big,popping, larger-than-life adventure to have an extraordinary life. There have been these tiny, almost invisible little decisions that have surprisingly made quite a difference.
The decision to let go of a grudge, drink more water, go on a walk,watch my favourite shows or sit my butt in a chair everyday, writing a few hundred words no one may ever read. It is all very confusing indeed.
Brain dump #4
I feel I am an introvert with extroverted thoughts.This has been frustrating me to no end. Since I joined college, I have been trying really hard to get out of my shell and I have to some extent. I am no more that awkward under-confident 15 year old who couldn’t speak one proper sentence in front of strangers, especially boys.
However, there are still so many things I want to do, conferences I want to attend, ideas I want to portray and changes I want to bring in the society around me. I just wish I was more assertive and confident* Sigh*
Brain dump #5
I need to start working on a research paper I have to present at a conference in February. Then there is a test coming up in Jan, not to forget the practicals I still need to appear for this month. On top of that, I have a strong urge to start drawing again. Only if I was a tad less lazy!
Brain dump #6
Lastly I have exhausted my reading list and am running out of ideas for more. So if any of you have any bright ideas on some good novels I can read, please do share. Also, I have been debating whether to start watching Stranger Things or complete all seasons of Orange Is The New Black (quite late, I know).
Here endeth the dump!
As David Allen proposed in his book, the best way to dump or declutter your brain is to get it out of your head and capture it somewhere, either on a notepad,as a diary entry or on an app. Just make a to-do list of everything that’s on your mind, including the minute details and honestly criticise and evaluate each item ticking them off whenever you start feeling overwhelmed by everything that’s on your agenda. I am positive it will bring you back to your comfortable space.
I would love to know about your brain dump times.
