A blog waiting to happen

Obviously it’s been a long time since I’ve posted to my blog, and Project 365 has fallen off. Perhaps I’ll try again next year. More than likely, I’ll go for a Project 52, sticking to one post a week.

To face the facts, I burned out on Project 365, and I was busy with classes, my college’s newspaper, and my somewhat sporadic social life.

Since my last post, I’ve been elected as the Student State President of the Journalism Association of Community Colleges, won a few more awards, and realized that I have no idea what I really want to do with my life.

However, I want to become more active with my life. I want to push myself to do more in journalism, become a more active, influential member of the internet communities I am apart of, and expand my overall presence online.

I wouldn’t say no to a paying writing gig, either.

Until next time, blogosphere.

What is Déjà vu, and why do I get it often and repeatedly?

This is exactly what you think it is, a question for anyone reading. This weird phenomenon hits more more often than others, it seems like. When it’s brought up in conversation, people say “Yeah! I get that every now and then!” 

When I get it, I feel like it’s every day or two. Just right now I was switching out laundry, and I heard a movie playing a room over. A movie that was rented. 

I dropped a T-shirt, and suddenly I was overwhelmed with the thought that “I remember this exact same incident.” That was followed by “But I can’t remember that same movie, we just picked that mov–” only to be cut off with the thought that “I remember remembering this.”

WHEN did I remember this from? It seems like every time I get hit with a thought like this, it feels like I’ve lived through the remembering multiple times.

I’ve heard tons of different reason why this phenomenon exists, but what are your thoughts, kind readers? 

I’ve once held the theory that Déjà vu, along with many other things, are insights into other worlds and alternate universes, but that’s a post for another day and a part of the dedication for a book I want to write.
