A Topic-Less Day


Come on in ladies and gents, welcome to the mind of Showbeddy, coming up next… nothingness.

There you go, guys. A post without a topic. I knew it’s coming eventually but I’ve got to admit… it’s a lot sooner than I’d expected.

I’m not exactly running out of topics, you see. But at the moment in my shiny “idea" chest the only things available are one unfinished story plot and a whole lot of movies I watched… and I really hate to turn this into a movie blog.

But that’s all I’ve been doing… watching a lot of movies and reading a lot of books. If I don’t talk about movies, I’d have to talk about my life — and everyone knows I’m not doing that well right now. Anyway I’m reading up on “STUDYING" and “MEMORY POWER." I ain’t ashamed to say out loud that I’m seeking help in “how to studying," I just wish I had done it… say, like oh… 8 years ago.

It’s actually pretty funny. All my life it’s the only thing I knew how to do and I thought I did it pretty well. But I didn’t even know why and how I did it. It’s kinda like people know how to chew and swallow but when it comes to EATING… the subject is so complicated and philosophical it’s almost like… an art.

But NO, studying is not an art (thank God). It’s sets of systems developed that best suit people’s lifestyles and learning habits. What really surprises me is how much of these so-called systems and techniques I’ve already known and used for a long time without realising that they are beneficial. What’s frustrating is that whatever system I’ve been using my whole life comes from a long, long series of trial-and-errors and repeated failures and disappointments in school. Imagine, if I’ve approached these books when I entered college… how much different my life would be.

But then again, I would have never joined LE, and my life would have meant nothing (Oh Yeah Babe!)

(You ass-kissing sonabitch)

Before I hit the [publish] button… you know what’s interesting though? This whole post only took me 22 minutes. I wonder if I write faster in English. Yesterday I was writing about 【500 Days of Summer】and I kept having to translate what came to my mind into Chinese. It was SO MUCH fun (not).

    I have the exact same thing happened to me from time to time, when it comes to write something in Chinese. English sentences would be lingering in my head, and I would need to translate them back into Chinese. I wrote a blog post on it last month talking about this kind of situation that somehow something is already ingrained in my brain, and I hadn’t realized it.

    “How to study" could be a good blog topic. I find that now my memory retention is no longer as good as it was when I was 20 years old. I can’t concentrate. It does take more time to memorize something and it does NOT stay in the brain longer than it should have. That’s a bit scary. It’s like there’s a veil in my brain that filters what goes into it. The veil gets thicker as I get older.
