People seem to be riddled with notions these days. What’s that about? Here are some of the ridiculous notions I’ve had the joy of acquiring during college:
Sarah, did you just enquire about a job? Have it.
I am employable.
Study culture, travel, learn, etc.
I am cultured.
Study linguistics. It’s the science of language.
I am a scientist.
I am going to earn money at some point.
Do a graphics project.
I am a graphic designer.
Teach in a Spanish-speaking country, where a teacher is called a ‘profesor’.
I am a professor.
Build a website.
I am a programmer.
Write a blog.
I am a writer.
Study in France. Eat a croissant. Go wild.
I am French.
Write a blog in French.
I am Voltaire.
Do this project on whatever you like.
I am creative.
Present your amusing thesis data at a conference.
I am hilarious.
Play midfield there for the college soccer (B) team.
I am a sports star.
I am asthmatic.
(Noti- oh. That’s unfortunate…)
Really though, where would we be without notions? If it wasn’t for them, sure why would we do anything? I’m grateful for each and every notion I’ve acquired over the last few years, and I hope I continue to have notions for the foreseeable future. Sure who knows where your notions could take you?
