This quote made me think about the ways that I can try to be an interesting person and be in interesting situations to better generate ideas. I used to keep an idea book to document all of the ideas I came up with but recently started keeping track of my ideas on various apps. I miss my idea book so I decided to start one up again. Below is my new idea book; I am so excited to fill it with my brilliance : )
This week my data collection continues, I will be heading to Chicago Thursday evening and then to Kansas City this weekend to interview, wish me luck!
