Just got back from a trip to Kathmandu (I only got to see a hint of the Himalayas from afar; cloudy plus busy with meetings) and I missed fangirling. I did meet another journalist who is so into K-pop she’s the perfect balance to my bias for J-pop and T-pop (Taiwan). And what’s funny, both of us are “serious” journalists too so we can relate to each other.
Still too tired from the trip and I don’t know what’s happening in the pop culture scene to blog about anything on that. Boss was asking how come I didn’t extend another day so I could take the flight over the Himalayas. I told him I wanted to be home by Saturday so I can rest by Sunday and get back to work on Monday feeling energized. Experience from previous business trips has taught me that I need at least a day to recoup my energy. I guess age catching up?
All I want to do right now is watch something that would either 1) not require thinking or 2) anything Qiu Ze to relax. I have withdrawal symptoms from Office Girls and I will have to remind myself that tomorrow ain’t a Qiu Ze day anymore.
So anyway, I came across this:
So which brain type are you?
LEFT BRAIN: “I am the left brain. I am a scientist. A mathematician. I love the familiar. I categorize. I am accurate. Linear. Analytical. Strategic. I am practical. Always in control. A master of words and language. Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers. I am order. I am logic. I know exactly who I am.”
RIGHT BRAIN: “I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be.”
I highlighted those that apply to me. I can’t be a lefty because I hate math, I hate numbers (like many journalists, I joke that I became one to escape from numbers, which is ironic because I WAS a business journalist). I am more art than science, imagination than logic, colors than sterile. Maybe I am 30%-70% in favor of being a right brain.
