“Respect your parents. What they tell you is true. Hard work, dedication and faith will get you anything. Imagination will drive itself. You can get anything you want, but you have to have faith behind all your ideas. Stick to your goals and have an undying faith.” – Russell Simmons


The long drives…

Anything above an hour drive is a long drive in my book. I’ll have KPCC (NPR) playing for background noise and thoughts in my head.

I never get philosophical in showers like most people do, my creative thinking happens when I’m on the road. I find this weird. I got to work after driving for an hour and a half, and now I have some downtime.

In my car, I was asking questions to myself. Questions like, “What is driving me?” and “What will be my first job after college?” The questions were just popping up. But I never really answered them. I thought of potential answers instead. The final question I had after shift my car into park was, “How well do I know myself?”

I find this very weird that this happens to me most if not every time I am on the road for an extended period.

Do you have an odd place or activity that sparks the creative juices in your head?
