What’s On My Restless and Wandering Mind?

Ramblings of a restless and wandering mind.


Dear Restless and Wandering MIND,

For just a solid hour or two, COULD YOU PLEASE FOCUS??!

Really, give me a break! AAAAHHHHH..

If only I could temporarily pause all these thoughts and arrange them according to my priority lists.

If only I could set an alarm time as to when these random thoughts should pop up!

I swear I am dead serious about my studies here and I need you to focus 100% on my notes alone!

Really, you can’t just let me imagine a beautiful beach with a cozy swimming pool at this time, while in the middle of studying for my semi-final exams! How dare you bring up an awesome business idea while I’m trying so hard to memorize Section 6 of Freedom of Information Act of 2010?! Why do you have to remind me of my to-do list now when I have to remember relevant dates of current news and events?!


Please, my dear mind, could you not overflow your creative juices and random crazy ideas and unimportant reminders at this very critical moment of time? I badly need you to focus on my hardly-understood handwritten and photocopied notes. Please understand that while I appreciate all the unsolicited brilliance you throw here and there, it’s not needed at this time since I only have one very important thing lined up for you now – that is to FOCUS on STUDYING! Study, study, study!

It’s for semi-finals for heaven’s sake! You know how I badly need to ace my exams now to compensate for the previous exams which I failed to prioritize due to lack of time and effort.

Now I need you to straighten out and do as I wish: Forget other things and concentrate on reading those notes! Plain and simple. Absorb all the technical terms and definitions and comprehend well every passage. You are still on Section 6 so 20 more sections to go for this subject alone!

Honestly, my eyes are getting tired now from reading the same section over and over again and still not able to completely understand what I’m reading. I don’t know what’s wrong with you but you seem to understand very well reading the first few lines, but after reading the entire paragraph, you’re like.. “Oh wait, what did just I read, again?” Sh!t. My mind has flown to the other side of the world!

Alright. I can do this.. Let’s try again..

“Section 6. Exceptions. – Access to information shall be granted unless:

a. The information is specifically authorized to be kept Secret under guidelines established by an executive order, and in fact properly classified pursuant thereto: Provided, that 1) The information directly relates to national security or defense and its revelation may cause grave damage to the national security or internal and external defense of the State; or…”

(Oh! I just remember, I have to upload a new set of products tomorrow morning.. and oh, it’s already Friday so I have to update my page and finish my post about the…)

WAIT. What??! I was reading about national security and secret and state and what was it again???!!!


Okay, never mind. I think I’d rather read some blogs now. Or might as well check some “How to Focus” articles. Or just.. you know, SLEEP.

It’s 4am. I give up. Bye.

Oh how about you, what’s on your wandering mind?

    It's quite difficult to focus especially if you're mind is giving off a lot of awesome ideas. Hehehe! Focus is not impossible though. One just need to have constant practice.

    I can remember my 4th year in college when I had to memorize 500 paintings from my Art Appreciation class and I couldn't concentrate so I blogged. LOL. Sleep and rest first then eat to rejuvenate! Hehehe, good luck on your exam! :))

    OMG! Hahaha. Don't worry. You're not alone in the "talking to myself" dilemma. I do that a lot too.
