The wires in mah head
Here is a picture of how i look like. Under the bandage are a bunch of cables that…
are connected to this thing that records my brain waves for 3 days.
Every once in a while things happen that make you reflect upon many things on your life. For the past year and a half I have been living an adventure few people get to live. Even fewer people from my country get to work in Silicon Valley and be amongst the few that really work in shaping the future of the web, social media, commerce, mobile etc.
Going with the pack has never been much my deal. I sometimes feel too much like a regular dude but hanging out with ‘the crazies’, ‘the entrepreneurs’, ‘the hipsters’ and ‘the geniuses’ kinda skews the parameter of what is normal and what is great.
Moving to a new and exiting place away from all the conforts and familiar environments can certainly cause a lot of stress and anxiety. It is not easy but I have enjoyed every second of it. I hardly think that is a reason for the scary and intense anxiety I experience on occasions because I live for such emotions. It feels more like an intense self awareness that traps me when I want to move fast and control a situation for no apparent reason. Its a recursive, self fulfilling prophecy I impose myself to which I say to my self.
Its ok to slow down!
Looking at this from the bright side. I now feel I can wear an Afro wig and feel less self conscious than right now :P I hope the next post is about my pictures with an afro!
