An idea worth spreading

Have courage to do things. Always stand out and share. Ask yourself: am I happy? Then follow your heart and do what makes you/would make you so. Strive for happines and enjoy moments of it. Moments - because the constant state of happiness doesn't exist - we have just those little periods of time which make our lives complete and give us strenght to take action.

I'm passionate about

Music, particularly violin and ukulele, psychology, chemistry, life

What are your thoughts and questions on "the magic washing machine"?
Well, first, you're an excellent, very engaging speaker. I hardly ever see someone with the passion like you have. The second thing is that I really liked your speech. I mean - it wasn't 100% serious but it doesn't have to be. The washing machine is a great leading theme and at the same time pretty unconventional. You presented the topic in a very catchy and surprising way. And the punchline - very funny. I loved it. However, I have an impression that you could have done it with more of an insight. It was rather short and you just gave the audience a quick draft of what is going on. I wish I could see you developing the topic, giving more information, statistics (I know you're good at it ;). I'd be very curious to see a modified, longer version of "the magic washing machine".

How can creativity and chronic depression coexist?
Well, I think that when we're depressed, we're more focused on ourselves. This implicates a lot of daydreaming which evokes creativity. When we're sad, we easily get distracted and start thinking. Creativity is a natural consequence of it - being misereable becomes not enough to express ourselves (that's of course simplification ;)
