okay just to start fucking around.....

 

what about providing stimulation positive and negative(news story) and then asking for a writing sample (poetry)

 

possible problems:

 

deciding what exactly is positive and negative stimulation?

 

how to judge the writing sample? how do statistically measure that?

 

wow its been awhile, but ill toss this around more....warming up my brain

I totally hear you, I am unfortuantly going on my sixth year of college, with transfering twice.... I see my friends making it in the real world, and I want to be there... I keep debating whether to quit college, but then I see myself fliping burgers and I stick with it...

"I am unfortuantly going on my sixth year of college"

 

 

dood, youre my hero......

 

let me rant for a second....youre in the real world, as your boys are also...i used to get so fucking irked when people put that shit on me....its like fuck you, i got my own shit, and its harder enuff without you telling me its not real.....fuck off......

 

ok breathe

 

yeah i transfered to, but parents were not having me take another year, so i had to do 21 credits each semester my final year.....oh yeah but that shit wasnt "real", it was a wonderful dream with pixies and fairies and we all danced and sung songs...

 

 

the next time someone give ya that real world crap, tell em to write a senior thesis of 40 pages for a psych major.....

 

 

sorry i digress....

I realize how real it is, maybe a wrong choice of words... But every year I become deeper in debt.. I really want to start making a solid income, I can no longer hold down a job and maintan classes.. I give you alot of credit ,taking 21 credits at once... I am taking 15 and feel bogged down...

BY THE WAY "ETHREAD..." DONT GIVE UP COLLEGE. SOME GO FOR THAT ELITE LEVEL OF EDUCATION AND SOME DONT. IN THE END COMPLETION OF ADVANCED EDUCATION CANT DO ANYTHING BUT MAKE YOU A SMARTER MAN AND BORE YOU FOR THE DURATION OF THE TIME SPENT IN IT.

my views on MOOD AND CREATIVITY:

 

i think mood plays a very important role in your creative skills. like when im angry, or have a bad day, or something just really shitty happens, i feel like sketching, and ill do one of the dopest pieces ive ever done in a few months. why cant i do that all the time? because my energy is somewhat focused. its my escape in some way, and i channel all those emotions into my work.

 

same things go when youre happy somewhat, you feel good, about yourself and in general, and then good things come from it.

 

id throw that in tha 40 pages and give a shout out to teaser in tha references ;)
