Everyday NhanSense – Day 66

Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.

Day 66’s Topic: Brewing up something special.
I have always been a dreamer. As a child, for some strange reason, I have always had this peculiar habit when I wanted to “brainstorm” an idea, no matter what it was.

This habit entailed me doing something really strange now that I think about it. For a long time as a kid, I would find a bunch of rubber bands and dangle them around in my hands, “playing” with them as I came up with ideas.


I don’t know why it was rubber bands. I just had a weird fascination with them. I would stretch them out and twirl the elastic bands around my fingers as I thought up something in my head.

A cartoon character.

A video game idea.

A TV show I think would be cool to watch.

Just whatever.

That’s what I did a lot as a kid. I would daydream. I would make dorky, childish sounds as I tossed the rubber bands around in my hand. My family knew about this odd thing about me as well. My brothers teased me about it. My mom would scold me for leaving my rubber bands behind on the couch or in my bedroom.

I would always pluck a bunch of rubber bands from the kitchen and just do my brainstorming somewhere in the house.

What can I say?

I was certainly an odd child. I can admit it without being embarrassed. I was just strange.

But you know what? Who cares!

I just like to think outside the box, right? I don’t think in a linear way at all. Far from it.

I am a scatterbrained person when it comes to creativity, if anything.

Regardless, it’s how my mind works. I guess the rubber bands were something I needed as a catalyst when I was a kid. I have long since strayed away from this rubber band-linked “hobby” of mine as a kid, but I still find myself brainstorming.

I think.

I think a lot.

I think constantly, in fact. There are nights I can’t sleep because my mind just appears to be ever so restless. It never stops when I want it to shut off for the evening on those insomnia-stricken nights.

Sometimes, my thoughts seem like they are thinking thoughts without me.

In this sense, I am always brewing something in my mind.

Now it’s time for me to let everything come together and really show off my creative chemistry. Hopefully soon …

Just hopefully.

Will you be there when my creation(s) can finally come to fruition?
