Today’s Daily Prompt is: “When and where do you do your best thinking? In the bathroom? While running? Just before bed, or first thing in the morning? On the bus? Why do you think that is?”
I don’t know that I really have a “best place to think.” A lot of the time it’s when driving, on familiar routes, because I am doing something mindlessly repetitive and soothing, and I can let my mind wander. Or sometimes, yes, just before bed, or more accurately, just before sleep. I think again it’s because I can just sort of let go of the immediate and let thoughts go free. Rarely is it when I’m under pressure to think; that is often a problem for me as I get so nervous when I’m ‘on the spot.’
Today’s Daily Prompt is “What does “happiness” look like to you?”
This. It looks like this:
Saturday’s Daily Prompt is “When was the last time you did something completely new and out of your element? How was it? Will you do it again?”
I hardly ever do anything out of my element, frankly. I know it was odd and uncharacteristic of me to ‘go’ for my TS clearance. I was terrified. Maybe I should try to do more out of my element, I don’t know. Remember, it’d be a risk — and risks are called that because you might have the ‘bad thing’ happen. I don’t like ‘bad things.’
Today’s Daily Prompt is “Is it possible to be too honest, or is honesty always the best policy?”
I think people often forget that there is a useful difference between honesty and openness. To me one should always be honest, even if one isn’t necessarily particularly open. While you always have to, or ought to, tell the truth, I don’t know that outside a court you have to tell all the truth. Even in a court, you only have to answer questions put to you, you don’t have to, and it’s generally a bad idea to, volunteer information. Personally while I don’t mind being honest, I would like to try being a little less open. I’m sure people aren’t interested in my every thought.
And happy Friday. And happy five inches of snow and a broke procedure to let us know of schedule changes.
Okay so yesterday’s Daily Prompt was: “When you look back at your [self] on January 2, 2015, what would you like to see?”
I think I’d like to see a huge change in my physical appearance (the reason why will become apparent later!), and more confidence and polish. I’d also like to see a person better able, or prone, to finish what he starts and to follow through and persevere.
This is wordpress’s ‘daily prompt’ to encourage blogging:
Do you Believe in Magic?
You have been transformed into a mystical being who has the ability to do magic. Describe your new abilities in detail. How will you use your new skills?
I know they’re trying to be helpful but could it be they’ve they run out of practical things to suggest? ‘Kay first off, most of us would probably write out an x-rated post if we were being totally honest. (Or at least, I would.) But secondly consider – you’ve been transformed into a mystical being…holy crap! The first thing you’re going to do is try to figure out why whoever did that did it to you, and how you can get back. Imagine the terror of going from ordinary guy or girl at home into a ‘mystical being.’ I mean, you might not even like singing like Kate Bush, right? Or dressing in gauzy outfits, or leather and sparkles, or living in some sort of cloudy world of funny effects and noises. I know I wouldn’t. So I’ll keep my x-rated descriptions to myself, and leave the rest of what I wrote as my post for today.
