Keep Curiosity Alive

It’s hard to find the time and energy to pursue the things you are interested in. I get that. But by all means, even if it is for like five minutes a day, pursue those things you’re interested in. Learn about sailboats, about volcanoes, art forgery, famous mimes, the Inca language, or video game music videos, just whatever!

When something comes along and ignites that spark of interest, be receptive. It could lead to figuring out what you want to try and do with your life, or forming a new relationship, or a new way of making paper airplanes.

If you are curious then there will be passion in your learning. Some of those things you learn may make your life better, easier or generate some great stories to share.

Here are a few things to spark your curiosity:

  • Writing Exercises – A website with all sorts of random generators aimed toward writing but cool for all sorts of things.
  • Bored and Brilliant: How Spacing Out Can Unlock Your Most Productive and Creative Self
  • Discover a hobby – Seek and ye shall find something to do.

I work as the Teen and Young Adult Librarian where I can put my wide range of experiences to use helping patrons find what it is they're looking for. I read Fantasy, Science Fiction, Graphic Novels, Mythology, and more! I have gone backpacking, small-boat sailing, built a computer, worn a costume to an anime convention, and played all sorts of games.
