Random Thought: Day in a Movie?

Today was interesting, to say the least. I stayed up quite late, and therefore woke up late. [That, of course, isn’t the interesting part]

Here are a few scenes from today:

  • As I ran for the bus this morning, I realized I had only put pre-product in my hair. It was too late to turn back now as I needed to be at the stop for the bus. Oh well.
  • As soon as I walk into work, the first thing I am told is: “Josh is smirking, it is going to be a good day.” Actually, I was smirking because of the text message I was reading on my phone!
  • As I am sitting at work receiving instruction, I ask a supervisor if he is feeling okay as his tone clearly registers to me that something is wrong. He says he isn’t feeling well.  He attempts to provide me further instruction and then says: “I’ll talk to you about it later, I am going to go throw up.”
  • While having a midday summary discussion with another supervisor, [one that is only coughing and not throwing up] he leaps from his chair and says “I have to answer the door!” I was in shock, to say the least and dismissed myself to lunch.”
  • Lunch was a scene right out of Devil Wears Prada, the one where she is running all the errands. I raced out of the building and on a bus, from the financial district to the touristy/shopping area. I bought more underwear and socks from H&M [and had to be in the slowest line possible], raced to my only fast food option Chipotle for a veggie burrito, and then made  mad dash to a wine store to bring wine for a dinner I was attending before making it back into work and scarfing down the burrito. Back to the grind.
  • On the MUNI ride to dinner, a lady quite unnecessarily was giving me the death glare. I respectfully maintained my silence.
  • Dinner was filled with fantastic conversation and a mutual fear of salmonella. We prolonged the main course and enjoyed our salad, red wine, and potatoes. The chicken ended up being quite good!
  • Finally at home, I write this blog post before bed, and can quite distinctly hear the gentleman living above me have sex.
That, my dear readers & thinkers, is what life would be like living in a movie and what makes every day another adventure. Carpe Diem.

School of Thought Series: Lesson Learned.

So, instead of imparting knowledge on others, it seemed it was my fate to learn a lesson. Around a week of graduations, I thought I’d give my opinion out on higher education, life experience, and so on and so forth.

Well, I ended up being schooled.  Bloggers seriously have a full-time or at least part-time job on their hands. A week of posting needs a lot more planning and a lot more research. I thus had learned my lesson.

I suppose this “failure” comes at a good time. Early on in the “Thinking Josh” blog/project but also when I had a couple of really awesome people tell me how much reading my blog inspired them.  And a couple of couple of people is a lot more than I asked for..

So. With that, I plan on better planning for all posts and writing.  In addition to the new layout of the blog, I am also going to approach categories and formatting a little differently, too.

Good night thinkers

School of Thought Series: a poem

I had an idea,

but it wasn’t ready.

I can admit failure,

and save the thought for another day.

Because I’m always thinking.
