Is it just me or do other people find that they do most of their contemplating when they are in the shower or driving? I swear every morning when I'm in the shower I get the most random ideas or I think of things I have to do. I go through lists, I think of what to wear for the day, what to make for lunch, all sorts of random things. It's really quite helpful actually. Yet, by doing this, my showers are never really that relaxing. I guess I save that for the drive to work.

On my drive to work every day I don't necessarily think of what I have to do that day or get any brilliant ideas, I somehow start to drift off and reminisce back to the days when I wasn't on my way to work, haha.

For example, today I started thinking about a random snowball fight I had my freshmen year of college. I have no idea where that came from, but the whole event was right like it happened yesterday. Now don't get me wrong, I'm still paying attention while I drive, but it's like my memories take over when I'm in my car by myself. I really don't get it, but I don't mind it either. Yet, the moment I pull into my driveway at work, I'm "woken up" so to speak, and the memories are gone until 6:30 when they escort me home. I guess you could say it's my bittersweet way staying young while growing up.

And that's my "insight" for the day.
