Fork in the road

Standard

With the amount of forks, I have found on the road. I feel I can say, it’s been enough to stock up my cutlery.

Decisions! Decisions! Decisions!  It’s so irritating, how I need to feed every data in my ‘life’. It can’t do one damn thing on its own. I’m passing college, what do I do now? It asks me, Come on Life, For once, be brave and YOU tell me, What should I do?! I’m so tired of telling you what to do, everytime.

Your need to make a decision increases, when you’re lazy. Every morning, I’m faced with the question, Do I need a shower today?! It’s not that I hate shower, the decision would have been easier, if I did. I hate the before and after part of the shower. Every day, atleast 2 times, I have to choose, whether to cook or order food?! Of course, being lazy I prefer the latter option, not a tough decision, you say. But the problem comes, when the end of the month is near and the wallet looks pretty empty. Still I can deal with these decisons, doesn’t require too much of an effort. I would like it if I didn’t have to do it but still I can deal with the forks on these roads.

The tough part is when the forks in the road are so huge, looking at it, I get a feeling, that it’s telling me, FORK YOU! Decisions like, What course do I need to choose after class 10th? It has been 6 years, since I made that decision and I’m still not sure, if it’s been the right one. After 12th decision like, What subject to graduate in or should I go for a professional course? The pressure, that decisons like these determine mine future, makes it even harder to take. Then there are choices like, That guy at the gym is cute, Do I ask him out?! If you’re too late in taking a decision, that guy might leave the gym forever and you don’t get to see him again.

I can ramble about it for quite long but then I don’t want to force my readers to make a decision, whether to read or not! I would just tell them, when you see a post from the blog, Just give it a read. I like to keep it short and simple. 😛

Over the short period of time, I have managed to survive without facing too many catastrophic consequences of my decisions. I would like to say, Whenever I find a fork in the road, I choose the one which is going to make me happy. Happy is not easy though. I’m not talking about happiness in the short run but decision which you really feel is going to make you happy in the end. Don’t choose a road, just because it’s easy to travel.

Change is inevitable.

Standard

Inevitable

One word prompt.

As soon as we adjust ourselves to a change and start getting comfortable, life knocks us out with some other random changes.
Sometimes the changes lift our spirits higher, like when you make some new amazing friends in school and college. Sometimes they break us down, like when you have to say goodbye to them or they just drift apart. But, both times, it ends up teaching us a valuable lesson and reminds us, Change is inevitable.

The inevitability of change doesn’t make it a villain. It’s how you perceive it, that matters. Every change knocks on the door with opportunities, it depends on how wide you open the door.

The inevitable nature of change is what brings thrill to life. Maintaining an equilibrium in life for a long time, gets boring. From time to time, there should be shifts in the different curves of life, so that the adrenaline level increases or decreases. That is the only way to expand our horizons and grow to our full potential and sometimes even surpass them.

Ofcourse, I loved being a kid, who could cry and get her job done. I loved it when choosing the color of a crayon was the hardest decision I had to make. I loved it when being happy took the slightest of effort. I loved it when monopoly money was all I had to worry about.

But, I equally love to be responsible for getting my job done. I love it when I’m given power to make bigger decisions, which determines where I stand in life. I love it when I convince and work towards making myself happy. I love it when I pay real bills with real money.

If changes were evitable we would never step out of our state of equilibrium. Change is the only constant in our equation of life. So let’s accept it and go with the flow.

Hall of Fame

Standard

Daily Prompt
This Is Your Song:
Take a line from a song that you love or connect with. Turn that line into the title of your post.

As soon as I read the prompt, the first song that came to my mind was
Hall of Fame by Script

An excerpt from the song:
You can throw your hands up
You can beat the clock
You can move a mountain
You can break rocks
You can be a master
Don’t wait for luck
Dedicate yourself and you can find yourself

Whenever I’m doing something and a strong negative feeling starts weighing the positive feelings out. I listen to this song. It has never failed to put me back on the wheel of positivity.

I don’t know if you guys could relate to it or not, but there are times, when I absolutely need a dose of motivation, just like a drug addict needs his drug.

I’ll give you two instances:

~Around 2-3 months back, I had an interview. It was quite rigorous. At times a huge wave of nervousness came sweeping in which would convince me to go back home to the place where I’m comfortable. I remember I sat quietly and just kept on repeating the lyrics of the song in my mind.
Believe or not, it always ends up calming me in situations like these.

~Currently, I am trying to study Japanese, along with college, I plan to give the JLPT N3 level, this July. Any person who has studied Japanese as a foreign language must be familiar with the complexities of the language. It can be really exhausting to cope up with the kanjis.
When I feel like I am never going to pass it,so why even bother, this song really inspires me to at least give my best. Even if, I don’t pass the exam, I’ll be good enough to hold a basic conversation with a native.

I absolutely love the song, because of the go-do-it feeling that it gives me.

~~
I would really like to know, if you guys have a song which inspires you.

During exam thoughts vs After exams action

Standard

“Just let my exams get over! I have so many amazing things planned up during the vacations.”
~Me every semester
When I have my exams going on, there are so many things I have an immense motivation to do. Things that never crosses my mind during the rest of the semester. It’s like this:

Things I plan to do after exams

But as soon as the exams are over, I’m like “eh?! Ain’t nobody got time for these shit.”
I’ll rather do this:

What I actually do

Join a gym? Come on, doesn’t picking up the can of pepsi and bringing to my mouth count as a workout?

I’ll start my last semester, in January, and I can confidently say, this random period of motivation to do so many things always has a time limit from the start of exam to the end of exams.

I would like to believe, I’m not the only one who goes through this. Do let me know, if any of you guys go through the same? We can maybe share some popcorns and talk about how being lazy is awesome!;)
