Hoping to study Architecture in the UK.
I’ve just watched Sarah Kay’s TED talk which was really entertaining and fun. So she mentioned getting her students to write a list of 10 things I know to be true. It sounds really interesting so here’s mine.
10 Things I know to be true:
Happy Earth Day 2014!
Inspired by the animals from Disneynature’s Earth.
Testing out my D3300.
And of course my reorganized work desk.#overthinking #self-obsessed #d3300 #nikon #work desk
My first DSLR. Nikon D3300.
To think that I got all these things with just $1200 is a really good deal, the only thing that I didn’t put inside (the picture) was the dry cabinet so yeah. I got pretty much all I need. I’m pretty sure this thing will come in handy no matter what others may say.
April has been pretty awesome so far with my mini-achievements:
However, more things to do also:
Alright, April has been awesome… wait, and I just realized 4 months have already flew past this year. Holy…#overthinking #dslr #nikon #d3300 #To do list #happy #jesse andrews #books
I just came across this article about a book being published in the name of Marina Keegan, who died in a car crash 2 years ago. Well, to be honest, this is the first time I’ve heard of her and I’m probably going to get her book.
Well, as off track as I’m going to sound, I’m guessing this book will be inspiring and it once again struck me as the idea of how I wished to be more expressive and opinionated and just an aspiring something-to-be.
I do a lot of reflection and the older I get, the more difficult I find to grasp my own identity. I find faults in myself so easily and rarely give myself enough compliments. I was even more surprised to find a friend of mine claiming that I’m not an introvert, and he even smirked at the idea of me not understanding what an Introvert means. Well, the only thing I can say is I’ve read Susan Cain's "Quiet" , in fact I ran to the nearest bookstore to get it just the day after watching her TED speech, so I definitely know what introverts are.
I do hang onto the notion of identity and self-searching a lot. A whole lot. Things like being an INFP, being an introvert and just some things I really pride myself in. I guess I talk to people a lot and may come off as an extrovert in some people’s eyes (Even though I don’t think I do) because I just can’t stand the idea of having to leave the world not holding on to any beautiful memories that I’ve shared with people. But I think I may have gone a tad too far, thinking every moment should be seized at the stakes of compromising my own alone time. I don’t think I’ve been who I am or who I used to be.
I am an introvert at heart because I am terrible at small talks, I’m more awkward with strangers no matter how friendly I appear to be, I zone out a lot in big groups and feel lethargic easily, I’d never bored on my own (NEVER) and I find myself frustrated having to answer people’s casual questions. In fact, I may have confused it with grumpiness instead of me really just wanting some time to not say a word at all.
I haven’t really written this much for a while and I’m happy that I just did. If I hadn’t watch Walter Mitty, I wouldn’t have realized how much thoughts goes on inside my mind, all those fantasized scenarios, ‘perfectly-pictured’ conversations with people and being a hero of my own world. Maybe I’ve grew so accustomed to it that everything seemed like a normal thing to do. But if there’s anything that struck me recently is that if I can imagine something and visualize them with ease, then those are the thoughts I should be realizing. Travel, photography, living the life I dream of, those are the things I should be after.
I guess I am just going to do my best to do what I love. The only challenge ahead is balancing it, especially in such a extroverted world or environment I work in. Not having to hang out when I don’t want to, not having to answer or give a rationale for something when I see a need to and not having to talk when I don’t feel like.
I really do feel like we don’t need a rationale to do everything that we do, sometimes we just need to stay in the moment.#overthinking #thoughts #infp #soul-searching
The closest I ever had to an adventure.
I just watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and saw so many comments that it was one of those perfect movies for INFPs and it didn’t disappoint. I loved it!
I enjoyed every minute of the movie so much. I could relate quite a lot to Walter in terms of daydreaming except that I wasn’t that obvious. I usually only daydream when I’m alone because I tend to project this extroverted facade of me when I’m around people. I actually do daydream of having perfectly pleasant conversations with people because I’m a terrible small-talker in real life. And of course, those ‘dramatic and heroic’ portrays of myself.
'Beautiful Things don't ask for attention.' and that’s a quote which I believe (though self-doubted at times) is the key to life. As much as it applies in a literal sense, it also does in a metaphorical sense.
Beauty doesn’t just lie in appearances or exoticness but also in a sense of being true to yourself. None of us have to project ourselves to be somebody else or do things that you don’t usually do to fit in. Just be yourself and eventually the right people will find you, simply because they saw the real beauty in you.
Okay, now I need to get some work done so enough obsession rants.#Overthinking #daydream #walter mitty #the secret life of walter mitty #infp
To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
