Hi. My name is Ryan Langdon. I created this website with the intention to write about things that are on my mind. Writing has always been an outlet for me to express how I feel and talk about things many people may be interested in. This blog is titled “Inside My Mind” because of my writing style. I have always been known to write in streams of consciousness. I don’t marval over grammar or sentence structure; I just write what I am thinking. I probably used that semicolon wrong but it’s okay, you get the point.
This blog isn’t just about what is inside MY mind, but also others. I frequently invite guest writers to express their thoughts on controversial topics such as medicine or geopolitical conflicts. Even if I disagree with the messages being written by my guest writers, I allow them to have a platform to express their thoughts, whether it is anonymously or not. I do not believe in censorship or avoiding topics that I disagree with. It is important to hear everyone’s perspectives because sometimes you just may learn something from others.
I started this website after I wrote a viral blog post about internal monologues in early 2020. It spawned into research, which is also displayed on this blog. I did work with Dr. Russell Hurlburt, when he allowed me to participate in his studies of internal monologues. Feel free to check out the videos! I was strapped with a beeper, and every few hours, it would beep. At that exact moment, I would have to write down WHAT I was thinking and HOW I was thinking. Sometimes I would be thinking in speech, other times visually, and other times in ways that I could not describe with words.
Well anyways, I hope you enjoy what I have to offer. I do not write often, but when I do, it is about something that I really need to get off my mind. If you have interest in being a guest writer, feel free to reach out to me on social media @RyanLangdon_ everywhere.
Take off your shoes and stay awhile.
