I want to create a place that helps writers write- Writers Corner.
I find myself wondering where to go with my writing. I think and I have often hoped that someone would show me the way and the direction to go with my writing. but no, that is not the case. No one is going to help you write. You can only write.
every writer from throughout history faces one grand dilemma: what to write about. No one has the answer to that dilemma except for the person doing the writing.
So, if you want to write, you must write. Go your own direction, lead with your words and let others follow if they wish. That is what makes a good writer. A carver of a path not thought of before.
What am I supposed to do with all of this newly acquired summer free time I suddenly have??
I have no bills to pay, no school to go to, and no real problems facing me!! (i still live with my parents- one problem facing me is their struggles and suffering.)
There is so much to do in Orange County. Why cant i think of something? Anything?? I know! I’ll go for a hike in Santiago Canyon and do some reconnecting with mother nature!
In this part of the world, there is a real disconnection with anything real. We find somethings that are “real” in the every day dynamics of our lives, such as communicating with loved ones or connecting with strangers, or allowing our minds to become relaxed by doing an activity we love to do. But other than those moments, most of our lives spent in society is working: working to get a pay check or working to maintain the status quo.
You have to be aware of where your mind is at. you have to try and view your mind as a psychologists would: what your drives are, what your desires are, what your thinking about and how your feeling.
Free-time can be spent reconnecting with your Self. Or it can be wasted with distraction- a leading away from things that cannot be taken away, such as peace.
The last couple weeks of the semester are upon us. summer is just around the corner. Soon, us college students wont have to worry about turning in assignments for our professors.
What have we learned from this semester, however?
If you’re like me you’re probably kicking yourself for procrastinating, again.
Everyone must not forget that what we have learned in school, in past semesters and this one, we should be investigating on our own time and applying in real life. One thing harder than school is applying what you’ve learned in school in ordinary life. We get a brief introduction from our professors but it is up to us to dig deeper and discover the ways to use the information.
Math for instance. We use it every day. Algebra, however, is a little bit more evasive when it comes to ordinary application. But there are uses for it, obviously. Think about what you are learning and learn how to use it for the betterment of your life!
This summer: Read more, check out more books, walk more, meditate more, stretch more, drink more water, talk to more people, write more, and think about how fast school goes by.
One day when we are old we will look back at these days, at the beginning of our education and of our adult lives and minds.
