What do you bring to the table?

fingerprint

As I read Amit Varma’s post on August 22 about the need to get away from society and its craziness in order to find the time and peace to collect one’s thoughts, I was struck by the question at the end of the post: What is there to be said that hasn’t been said…

A pleasant, but disturbed, walk down memory lane

goan-schoolgirl

Do you know what it feels like to be the last one in school? To be standing at the gate, watching all your friends leave one by one — some by cycle, some in a rickshaw, some into the outstretched arms of their parent … You stand there thinking about them pedaling home, catching…

Disturbingly profound

wool hat

It’s time to remove my thinking cap and put on my writing hat. I’m not really a hat person, though — I’ve skeptically tried on hats at various Gap and Target stores usually on excursions with mom (when she visits) or friends. They shop and I wait around, glancing at my iPhone every 45…

This “disturbedness” cannot stop

Mushrooms

So, Duane Scott featured my Pleasantly Disturbed Thursday post from last week on his blog today. What an honor to be told by the master of disturbed writing that my piece was a gem. But what does that mean for my blog today? I worry about what to write each of the other days…

I have to thank Duane Scott for allowing me to present the uninhibited workings of my mind on Pleasantly Disturbed Thursdays. Especially when my brain feels like a heated wok.

I am back

Chicago skyline in background

I apologize for being MIA the last week. Attending a professional conference in the Midwest with a so-weak-that-it-was-practically-nonexistent wifi connection limited my ability to update this blog initially. But when I got back to a high-speed-internet-driven home, things only got worse. Jetlag coupled with inextensible deadlines and days chock-full of meetings didn’t help. Although…

Oh-so-pleasantly disturbed

Neuron synapse

Just when I had thought I wouldn’t do anything “structured” on my blog, pop comes Duane Scott’s Pleasantly Disturbed series. He’s been doing it for five weeks now and I have been watching from the sidelines, marveling at his ability to write about everything and nothing. It’s a rant unlike rants. He makes it…

First Impressions

Susan Boyle was booed as soon as she appeared on stage based on first impressions

Many of you have asked me why I chose the name “First Impressions” for this blog. I was considering “My Spot in the Sun” because this space would focus on my thoughts; “Rambling Thoughts of a Restless Mind” because some times that’s what I end up writing about — and y’all know how restless…

Social Media – Connecting the Dots

Connecting people from all over the world

The following is a guest post by David Roy, senior program assistant at the University of British Columbia, who helps teachers and non-teachers further their post-secondary education. Married with no kids, but a cat and seven rats, he spends his days gaming, blogging, reading, and trying to stay sane in this increasingly insane world….

WOW! I am a BON

Blog-Sticky-Note-Image1
