The current status of my brain
Given that I am in the process of learning and comprehending new processes and procedures, being introduced to new clients in a new market, and too many relatively new things (after 15 days of working at Active PR), I felt I wanted to show appreciation and some sympathy to this little organ inside my head, my brain!
The appreciation goes for the endless processes of controlling, coordinating and processing an incredible number of tasks and massive amount of information throughout my entire life, which is not that short by the way. Whatever milestones I have accomplished in my life are more or less the result of my brain’s analysis and interpretation of the facts and realities around me. The results have been somewhat satisfactory, but of course an upgrade is always needed!. To be realistic though, I have to say that there have been way too many challenging moments where the processing function of my brain has been interrupted by either new or complex data that were difficult to configure, so the output has not necessarily been satisfactory or as expected. Exams, math and chemistry assignments, learning new language at a non-young age are only few examples where my brain was telling me ‘STOP’ I cannot do it anymore, or I do not want to do it anymore, it is not what I want to do or like to do. Sometimes I listen, sometimes not. This is part of the challenge I try to push my brain to experience. It is part of its development, it must go through it!.
Sometimes, this little poor thing is capable and wants to do things but the intensity of data received within a limited period of time is a bit beyond its normal base. This is when my brain does not ask me to stop, but continues to process data with complete absence of any sort of control and this is literally how it does it:
- Mix names, letters, numbers and everything. This is when the coordination function is over-relaxed. A name of something would be attached to another thing and filed on a different planet. Once asked about it, my brain instantly asks: what is this?! Never heard of it!
- Go blind on things that were written down in order to remember and act on. This is when the wires between the eyes and brain are definitely cut off!
- Pose for 30..50..120 seconds after every question as the recalling function does not know in which corner of the brain the information is stored (if stored!)
Those are only few examples of the party currently inside my head. I keep telling my brain you will eventually be able to re-wire all cells and sort all incoming data and you will do it just fine! It is only a matter of time! (I hope!). Ok..and that’s me (Rawan’s brain) in action.
