Dreaming of My Perfect Career As far back as I can remember I have enjoyed the sensation of decorating a dull room and making it magnificent by allowing myself to express my talents of interior designing. The sensation of adding colors and textures to a room to bring it to life is extremely comforting to me. I have always been told that I have a unique talent when decorating a room, rearranging furniture, and adding memorable touches to a person’s home or office setting. I too believe that I have the talent it takes to become a very successful and noted interior designer. Not many people can walk into a room that has no direction, no color theme, no excitement, and envision the room coming to life. The kind of life filled with multi-colored pallet schemes, contemporary furniture, enlightened pictures, modernized tastes, and the feeling of never wanting to leave the room because it is so inviting. Interior Designing is a profession in which I always wanted to see myself fully pursue. It is captivating how I have pursued my dream career of becoming an interior designers living right here in Tucson, Arizona. I want to consider myself a diamond in the rough; someone who does not allow society’s issues or downfalls to overcome them when times are tough. Acquiring a job as an interior designer would allow me the opportunity to express my talent and leave my mark behind for others to enjoy. I cannot imagine that it is a simple task becoming a known interior designer in Arizona. With the construction industry becoming almost nonexistent in Tucson alone, interior designers may not have the job opportunities that they had five or six years ago. There are several factors to consider before becoming an interior designer. College education and training programs are very important when deciding to take on the role of an interior designer (Bureau of Labor Statistics [B.L.S.], 2009,

    Dreaming When’s the last time you dreamed? In fact, the last time sleep occurred is the correct answer. Most people believe that they don’t dream, only because these individuals can’t recall dreaming as an event. In J. Allan Hobson’s book, Dreaming, it explores how dreaming is influenced and how it affects the individual, how dreaming is associated with REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep and the importance of it, and also why sleep is so essential for human beings and other mammals to experience. Sleep…

    grow heavy and our minds tire. We find ourselves dragging our feet to bed. Normally we drift off to sleep and enter a stage of dreaming. As we fall asleep, our brain prepares for dreaming. Dreaming makes night interesting. Some dreams go in and out of our mind for long, while we can recall others just a few seconds after. But what is the truth about them? Dreaming is a natural event our minds go through at night. “On average, humans spend one third of their lives sleeping (Heijnen & Edgar…

    My Perfect Job My idea of the perfect job is one that will allow me to use the skills and knowledge I have gained, while also allowing some flexibility in my time, and keeping my interest. Having work that is financially rewarding goes without saying. I love working with computers, setting them up, fixing problems, doing upgrades, and teaching people to use them.

    Being a doctor has always been my dream. Maybe because of my parents’ and grandparents’ influence or maybe because of what my kindergarten mates said. But now I know exactly what I have to do and why. The event that really shaped my life is the reading of the book “The space of variation” by a quantum physicist Vladim Zeland. The author talks about what he calls “Transurfing”: a theory in which we are actually shaping and forming our everyday life. The process of “creation” is the thread unrolling…

    No day is perfect as something always seems to go wrong. Little or big there is always a flaw. That is what I have always believed in and probably always will. Anyone that says something is perfect is either lying through their teeth or overlooking a bunch of things. Some days do come close though. Some days just are so wonderful they seem perfect. They seem like the best day you've ever had. That doesn't mean they are but they do come very close. For me a nice summer day always is the start of…

    My wife Kathy is not the perfect wife, but she is “my perfect wife”. “Ahh, how cute” you are thinking. “He is such a sweet husband to say that.” I don’t think you understand. I do not mean that as something nice and cute to say about my wife. It is not meant to be hyperbole, but a statement of fact. How can someone be perfect? It is impossible of course unless God is involved. He can take an imperfect woman and make her my perfect wife. Kathy still makes wrong decisions at times. She…

    My perfect day would start by me waking early — 7:30 am is early, for me — feeling refreshed and restored. I haven't had a relaxing night of sleep in months and often awaken far later than I had planned, feeling guilty, stiff, and still sleepy. After a hot shower and a shave I'd put on a comfortable outfit, including nice socks (it's amazing how wearing a pair of nice socks can improve my day), comfortable jeans, and a tagless t-shirt (really, the ones without itchy tags in the back of the neck…
