It felt like vacation. My brain was calm, I felt liberated, and yet I was more productive in those two weeks than I’ve been in the past several months. It was worthwhile to say the least.
Here’s how it all started and some things I learned:
I was ready for an experiment. I’ve been a…
This is me. I would do something like this. But why do i always need inspiration such as this? I would not have thought of this on my own. I want to be more innovative, socially and idealogically. I guess thats my idea of creativity. I’ll be working on expanding my creativity over the next weeks……Socially, recently I’ve been thinking back to highschool english. This class has the potential to be the most inspiring subject for students. In grade 12 it sure wan’t my favourite but half way through the year I had this crazy idea that it would be neat to use references from school classroom material in my everyday conversations. I was using science terms to describe why the tomato sauce on a pizze burned my tongue but the crust did not, what types of clouds littered sky but using metaphors and similies and analogies had the most pungent effects. Using these basic literary terms spurred my sentences into complicated intertwined philosophical thoughts, usually without that intent. It made conversation and thinking more fun and meaningful. It was like a game for me, testing my self to see how well I could connect the dots and make relations. First just to think of one deep meaning disguised as an ordinary remark, then trying to hide another meaning. I felt my creativity steeping in itself. The more I tried the easier it came. Needless to say, something brough it to an end. It could’ve been something as simple as a hard week at school that stressed me out and drained my mental power. Whatever it was, I have to start from scratch. This whole thought was initiated by a facebook link to ‘Whose Line is it Anyway’. A fantastic show which revolves around the soul and raw wit of four people. Their creative powers are unbelievably hilarious, and it is remarkable to think an entire show could be based on soley subjects. I want that kind of power, and I know it will not come with out practice. I doubt anyone will ever reads this but myself sometime in the near future, and i’ll probably tell myself that I was in some retarded, or emotional state, and that’s probably true. But it isn’t often that I feel like expressing my self in this medium. If you don’t know, now you know

Must get into graffiti somehow. I’m not a fan of tags or scribbles, but I do very much enjoy tasteful images in discrete places. Down right amazing, the skill on the streets. I have to look for more of this when wandering downtown T.O.
Giving tumblr a whirl. I’m open to new idea and always ready to expand my mind. I sometimes need time to realize the beauty in things but I look for it everywhere I go. I live for joy and strive for peace. I don’t know what my mind likes, but I know when it likes something. That’s what I’ll be posting. No promises as to how often I’ll be doing this, or if I’ll ever come back to it after today.
