    Default Energize Me

    Tell me what energizes you, ie what makes you feel vital and alive, what feeds your strength, what you couldn't function easily without, etc.

    I have to have music. I listen to it almost constantly, or I'm singing to myself, or I'm discussing it with friends. It's a big part of what charges me back up. It feels like it draws my buried emotions to the surface, things I'm too uncomfortable to dwell on through the course of the regular day, and gives me a safe place to focus on them.

    I love going out to events like art museum shows, little clubs that host local bands, places where people seem to be in bloom - it gives me such a charge, like every fiber of my body is alert and smoothed down, like I'm just flowing with the souls around me. It's glorious.

    I also get giddy at car and motorcycle events, like shows and drag strip racing. The sounds and smells of machine power are like smells of home.

    Learning exciting new things, making new friends, and starting my day off with the right music.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    I'm energized by a walk in the nature, and a dip into the sea. Well, maybe not energized, it's more like meditation. What truly energizes me is beer and crazy people.

    And if no one around is crazy to start with, then beer will certainly create them.

    Whenever I'm listening to a piece of music, and it moves me so deeply, that I can feel my emotions igniting like I am going off into the heavens. Playing music and composing a new song is also energizing.

    Learning something new makes me feel alive and empowered.

    Family.

    Dancing.

    Romance.

    Achieving my goals.

    Nothing energized me more than when I'm working on a creative project.

    Learning things, particularly things that I can apply to people or use to help them.

    Listening to music makes me pumped as well, but it can also leave me feeling melancholy if it's wrong.

    I think impending situations, and knowing the consequences of my actions motivates me to do the right thing.

    Being in awe of something, as well. If there is something that is truly staggering out there that gives me something to be grateful for or compete with.

    Usually, competition drives me, particularly competing for knowledge. Unfortunately, I don't think I've reached all of my goals, but when I do I'll feel more confident.
