Thinking Room

As far as I can remember, ideas, thought, feeling would rush to me whenever I’m inside a bathroom, most of the time in the morning. It’s not a surprise to me because I am a morning person after all. In some cases, those ideas are what I deemed as brilliant, marvelous, and magnificent. And in most cases, the moment I stepped out from my bathroom boundary, everything was gone in an instant! I tried to remember what I was thinking about but it’s not the same when I’m in my bathroom. Someone once told me that most brilliant ideas came during time spent in the bathroom. Could it be the ambiance in the bathroom? By the way, wanking does not constitute having ideas OK? That is why I’ve been thinking of getting myself a note book, not a big one, just a small one that I can bring around just almost anywhere; that include the bathroom thinking room.

I was planning to get a nice note book in Lintas Plaza. An acquaintance of mine told me, there’s one shop that sell all sorts and type of note book, the kind that you would cherish; and probably would just keep it because it’s nice looking. Because the thought of getting a note book have been lingering in my head for weeks now, I was eager to get one fast. So I head up to a stationary shop and bought myself a note book and a pen.

I sometime got my ideas when I’m driving outstation. Now if I’m driving alone, I usually use the voice recorder on my phone to record my ideas, but I can’t really do that when I have passenger. It’s a bit embracing to me. Sometimes ideas came to me when I was waiting for a movie. People might think I’m crazy or what. I tried typing it in my phone, but the time I took to do that, not to mention my thumb getting numb pressing small button is killing me. Now if you have a note book, it is viewed as something normal. Just by writing itself, well it does for me, more and more ideas flowing into my head, down to the notebook. Just scribbling down what ever came across your head would be much clearer when it’s on a piece of paper.

Now that I got a note book, I need to find my bag. I think I have to buy a new one so I can keep it and bring it with me everywhere. I’m thinking to get the ones that you strap it on your thigh. Yes, I’m influenced by an anime I’m currently following. Which anime is it?

The Geek

A so called geek who resides at North Borneo, in a not so little city anymore, formerly known as Api-Api to the locals, Jesselton to the colonialist. This geek is a Civil Engineer by profession, who have lots of ideas popping up while traveling, who will write whatever popped up in his mind and hopping the reader would not be so judgmental toward his writings. This geek is also a computer & internet junkie who love outdoor, which is pretty much contradicting to each other doesn’t it? This geek is good at almost everything but a master of none (read about this somewhere). People may perceive him as a very quiet, describe as phlegmatic person, yet he is quite a chatterbox to those whom he is really close or comfortable with. This geek thinks anime chicks are way cooler than a real chick hence why he also likes to watch it (not the chicks, but the anime). Not to be mistaken as watching a cartoon, anime to this geek and to most of anime follower are animation that are created and produce by the Japanese.

    The notebook shop at Lintas, yeah I’ve seen it. I think it’s called Not Just a Book..or something like that. They can even customize what kind of cover you want for the book..not sure about pricing though

    Maybe you need to keep some paper or a small whiteboard handy in your thinking room..

    I tend to have interesting ideas when I’m in the bathroom too, and like you, I’ll lose them once I’m out of the room. I just enjoy resting my legs on the stool, and ‘relaxing’ in the dry, windy a the elongated washroom of mine. It’s so much cooler than my room!!! *nature calls*
