Thursday Theories – Multi tasking

Which do you think is better for you brain? Too multi-task or not too multi task.

I’m not going to answer outright, I’m going to write this out. Please while you read this, stay in the moment and read this post. Do not do anything else, just read.

I was watching television program on the ABC the other day called “Our Brain”. It was absolutely fascinating.

I wanted to write about one specific thing that I found really interesting from the documentary. Multi tasking.

When I listened to it, it made a lot of sense.

The term multi tasking was from computers. Now clearly, our brains are not computers. As humans, therefore we are not actually multi tasking. What we are actually doing is called swish tasking. We’re not focusing on one task, we’re going back and forth between tasks. Which ultimately, stresses our brain out.

There is a huge difference between focusing and swishing around.

Like it says in the documentary “Multi tasking doesn’t exist”.


Don’t Ass…u…me those smarts!

Years ago before I stopped ultimately being friends with my now ex-friends. We had gotten into a argument that ultimately, for me, ended the friendship anyway. I just didn’t know how to let go. When you know people for more than half of your life, it’s kind of hard to just go “Bye, bye”.

My Regina George was an A+++ student who was so smart, she was a teachers pets, because she was a A+++ student. So the irony was of course, when I saw her get into relationship and after relationship, no matter how abusive, or how bad the guy was. It put me off wanting a relationship, because I figured if someone as smart as her could get into such horrible relationships. What chance was there for me?

So when she said those immortal words” I only told you all that stuff, because when I’m single, I’m miserable when you guys are all in relationships and happy. I’m only happy when you are miserable in your relationships.”

I started to realise that I may never be an A+++ student, but I always be A+++ when it comes to my heart, and my personal safety, and my self esteem.

It’s also a good reason to never judge yourself, with someone else’s place in life. We are not all on the same journey. Neither are we all the same. So we are not going to have the same “smarts” about life either. That’s alright. I don’t think my Regina George is a bad person because she has low self-esteem. I think her narcissism is what makes her a bad person.

Credit where Credit is due…

When I was in High School, I used to C+…B’s if I was lucky. It wasn’t until after high school that I discovered that I had dyslexia. Whereas my ex best friend used to get A+++. I always felt dumb.

Now I have realised that there are different kinds of “smart”. One thing about my ex friend, none of them want kids, they just want to be married. Which is fine and I have no problem with that. It’s a long life though and if you can’t grow ambition beyond that. I’ve noticed that people tend to get stuck. All three of them, no career ambition, not even any travel ambition…They just want to get married. Other people I know who don’t want children, have other things they want too. Ambitions and goals that take them every where! Which is why I started to realise that they’ve got three of the lowest self-esteems I’ve ever seen. Also why they have SO much time for gossiping. And it will never change. It was always funny to me how they’d brag about being better than people who have children, because they have all this money to do with things with…Only thing was…They don’t DO the things they brag they can do,lol

So even though not being friends with them anymore, I feel smarter than them. I started to realise that smarts aren’t always about getting A+++ at school.

Then Donald Trump came along, and now I genuinely believe that I could run a country.

So I do have to give credit, these people have all made me feel smart again.

I knew it!

I just want to say that I am Dog and Cat person…But this makes sense,lol

Which is smarter: a cat or a dog? This question has stumped experts throughout the ages and has been impossible to answer due to complex nature of intelligence of both the animals. Now, the researchers at Vanderbilt University have managed to come up with an answer by calculating the number of neurons in their cerebral…

26…Someone you got to meet

I didn’t actually get to meet them, but I was lucky enough to attend a session where they were talking. I still cannot believe to this day, that I was THAT lucky, just to be in the same room as them. I have been lucky enough to be in the same room as BOTH the Dalai Lama AND Stephen Fry. The reason I am writing about both of them instead of one, is because their minds are incredible and the way they view the world, is the same way that I view the world too. Although I am little kinder to religions than Stephen Fry is.

Even saying though, one of the things he mentioned was that he doesn’t HATE religion, but he doesn’t think we need so much anymore and that there is nothing wrong with having a religion, just don’t be an extremist. Religions have caused a lot of problems over the thousands of years, but that is because of way, as human beings, we tend to interpret things. Too make right for own own causes.

Rats! That’s it really…Rats, so awesome!

I have completely stolen this from ““Cute Overload”” …(check them out for something to make you grin)

I am SUCH  a fan of Rats, I’ve had about 4 throughout my whole life and they are probably one of the most underestimated “pets” in the world. Clearly not those big wild rats, but Rats that are raised for being pets.

I train my pet rats using clicker training and positive reinforcement. Their favorite treats are cheerios, but they also enjoy working for dog treats, peas, and dinner left overs.

My rats are from various sources, if you are interested in getting pet rats, check local spca’s and rats rescues.
