As a sort of continuation from my last post – for the time being, until I’m in the mind space to write “real” posts again – I’m going to bide time by writing a few rambling, more personal, blog posts. Hey, if anything, I figure it will keep me writing and that’s always a good thing.
As I mentioned in my last post, I feel like things are up in the air right now (much like they’ve been for awhile now) but that I’m expecting things to hopefully start falling into place within the next week. But at this current moment, I’m in flux. And this is what has been on my mind as of last night:
Perhaps KP and I have been watching too much Shark Tank lately, but does anyone else ever come up with ideas for inventions they could create? And then dwell on them for a long time until they are perfected in your head? Or maybe it’s just a subliminal part of my being the eldest daughter of a mechanical design engineer who has several inventions/patents to his name? Either way, I’ve come up with ideas before, but I just came up with a new one…and I really like this new idea. They say necessity is the mother of invention, and this is something I wish existed. I’m almost surprised it doesn’t. So I’m trying to figure out why it doesn’t (or maybe it does and I just don’t know about it) and if I can create it myself…hmm…
Anyway, so now my head’s spinning with prototype ideas between diaper changes and dishes and preparing lunch and other work and obligations I’m also trying to accomplish. While on one had it’s fun to have something to think about, on the other hand I wonder why I do this to myself all the time? I’m always dreaming up some new idea that’s surely going to change my life, but it never comes to fruition.
Maybe it’s just a way to vicariously live a more exciting life than this one of mere day-to-day survival.
