The thoughts & ramblings of a young mind

Archive for the month “July, 2012”

HATE group projects.

My frustration of the day:

Groupwork more often ends up to be YOURwork rather than GROUPwork.  ARrrrrrrgh!

I think I lose a couple IQ points everytime when..

My mouth speaks faster than my brain or my brain’s simply an empty shell such that even I don’t even know what I’m trying to get at but in reply, the other person kindly pretends to nod thoughtfully anyways and attempts to return an insightful manipulation of what you said just so that their perspective/take on your reply makes your speech sound a bit less nonsensical.

And then I feel stupid after that.  Because under all the superficial talk, both I know and they know exactly what happened.  Because what happened was that they were trying to cover up for my stream of gibberish.   And we all know converting pure garbage to crystal is not exactly.. possible.

Observing people and the way they interact is really interesting though.  It’s funny what you notice when you really look for people’s tactics to have a smooth conversation when talking with others.  Then again, there are those who are tactless too.  Those aren’t fun to watch.  It’s akin to watching someone terrible at drawing, doodle.  It’s painful!

Housing: how small is too small?

I view myself as a bit of a minimalist in terms of housing choices.  In the best of scenarios, I would like a bi-level loft as of right now.  I want something like a one bedroom or even no bedroom (although a high ceiling is a must!), because I believe the smaller the space, the more restricting it is, the more creative it’ll force me to be in using the space wisely.  And I love imagining spaces and the hundreds of possible configerations within it and the challenges that come with it.

This is possibly why I’m so interested in people living in small spaces.  But how small is too small?

This is innovation;

This is my breaking point:

What are your ideal living quarters?

[ShortTerm] Goals & wants

Wants:

--desires, not necessities of life
  • DONE-ish

Goals [Short term, aka want achieved within several months]:

--achievements to be done by the end of summer
  • DONE!
