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.

End of a phase.

Standard

Three years of college life has gone by. What has changed you ask? I now hold a fancy degree. I have a few more contacts in my phone, some to be remembered for life, some to just be random names, I once knew. If my life dependent on cooking for myself now, I wouldn’t die, I might even have feasts somedays. I can now even bargain, find cheap pizzas and get good deals.

Never did I think, I would say, I will miss studying economics. But as I was going through my last exams, the thought that this may well be the last time, I am studying this, was kind of sad. (Not that it motivated me much, to study harder and longer for the exams. 😛 ) By the end, I did realize, as my time with economics was becoming scarce, its marginal utility was kind of increasing.

College gets you habituated to a way of independent life. Staying away from home, might sound scary in the beginning but the thought of moving in back, even for a short time, is scarier. Thoughts that I actually have to take a shower everyday, not get breakfast at 12 in the noon, have to make the bed after I wake up; is daunting.

The worst part of moving on in life, to the next phase, is having to bit goodbye to the people we met. Of course, they’ll be a part of my life, but it would never be the same. It’s tough going from being with them all the time to just meeting them once in months or even years.

I won’t say it has been the best chapter in my life’s novel. I would like to believe, I have better chapters coming up. But, it sure has been an intersting one. A wave of mixed feelings hit me, when I think of moving on to the next chapter. It looks everything between scary and exciting.

I don’t know if I’m ready but I sure am looking forward to take the leap and move on to the next chapter now.

I have been away from this blog for awhile. I don’t think anyone really noticed, but if bychance someone did, I would like to mark my presence and say, I didn’t die, I just had my finals, yeah that’s close enough. I will try my best to have more regular posts now, so that you guys are forced to notice me. Desperate? I know. I might disappear sometimes but don’t get too happy, I’ll always be back.

What a coincidence! I already had the title of my blog written, I was sure I wanted to right about my college life today and not on the daily prompt. Guess What happened? I get a mail with today’s prompt as  Phase.Can it be more awesome?! 

 

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.

Moving to Mars?

Standard

Daily Prompt:
Longing for Gravity

You are on a mission to Mars. Because of the length of of the journey, you will never be able to return to Earth. What about our blue planet will you miss the most?

So let me get this straight:
Are you saying that, I will not be returning to the planet where humanity is shrinking day by day?

Are you proposing that, I’ll not have to see the faces of these hypocrite adults ever in my life?

Are you suggesting that, I’ll never ever be competing in the rat race that has become the norm of the life here?

Are you telling me that, I’ll be away from a planet where religion is worth more than a person’s life?

If you are implying all these things then there won’t be a pinch of doubt before grabbing the one way ticket and jumping on the spaceship to Mars.

But if along with these, let me straighten these out too:
Are you saying, I’ll never be able to see my friends and family who has always been there for me?

Are you suggesting that, I’ll never be able to take weird selfies with people I love?

Are you telling me that, I’ll never be able to visit those beautiful places, on Earth that are on my list?

Are you proposing that, I’ll never be able to eat those delicious foods that’s only found in earth?

If this is the case, then I’m really sorry, I could never let the situation come to ‘missing them’. I’ll find a way to withdraw from the mission.

Damn Self Doubt

I could inquire about your well being. But frankly, I just don’t want to.
I never enjoyed your company to begin with, so I couldn’t care less, if you were trapped in a forest, surrounded by lions. Hell, I might even bribe the lions to eat you.

You are like the dementor. The only difference is you don’t live in Azkaban rather you reside in our body. You suck out the happiness, desires from us. You are like a punishment which if not worse than easily comparable to death.

You are like those grapes that looks sweet from a distance but when you get  closer to eat them, you realize they are sour. It feels easier to succumb to your threats than follow the path which could lead to your enemy Self-Confidence.

I am guilty of thinking of you as a friend, when you were actually the worst enemy, I could have had.
I can’t let you weigh down my dreams.
I know, I have the wings and all it needs is just some effort and I can fly.

I herewith deprive you of the right to influence my decisions. The only answer I will have for you, when you try to bury me with your words is ‘Try and convince me I can’t and I will show you I can.’

It was time we parted ways.
Expecto Patronum!
Your Destroyer

Trekking through Life

Standard

Alma Mater
You’ve been asked to speak at your high school alma mater — about the path of life. (Whoa.) Draft the speech

.

Hey Guys!
I know, I know. It’s last Friday morning before you graduate, and the last thing, you would like to hear is a random lady preaching about life. I have been there, and thought that. I’ll try my best to not bore you guys too much.

It has not been too long since I graduated high school, so I hope my ideas and beliefs about life won’t sound too outdated.
Here’s what I want you guys to know, before you step into the big world out there.

Don’t be Afraid. As soon as I stepped out, of high school, I felt vulnerable. It’s like a protective layer was taken away from me. You might feel lost, in the beginning, but don’t be afraid, you’ll learn the rules of this game called ‘life’ soon enough.

Enjoy Freedom with Care. You’ll enjoy the new found freedom. People will start accepting you are an adult and you can make your own decisions. But remember, with power comes responsibility. No one, except you, is now accountable for the decisions you make. So choose wisely.

Do what you love. You are young, you have time. Explore your options. Do not follow a certain path because the herd is moving that way. If you are passionate about something, don’t let it die. Even if it’s just a hobby.

Cherish family and friends. High School is the place, where we make the best and true friends. Don’t ever lose them. Respect and love your family, because at the end of the day, they are the people you can always count on.

Be True & Kind. Dishonesty, Rude behavior may look like an easy route to success, but it never is. Try to be there for others and create a positive impact in their lives. Kindness goes a long way.

Be positive. Be happy. Try and see the positive in every situation. It’s not easy but definitely worth it. Do not be afraid to have big dreams.
If there is something, which makes you happy, go for it. Don’t depend on people or things to be happy. Make decisions based on your happiness.

You all are wonderful and have the power to go out there and give your best to the world. So just do it.

Standard

We can almost hear the jingling of the bells. Christmas is around the corner, about to knock on the door. Rudolph must be on it’s way to pick Santa.

Life and Eggs.

Standard

Have you guys tried boiling an egg?
Stupid question? Duh.

But if, you answered in affirmative. I am pretty sure, you could egg-xactly relate to the struggle, which comes with it.

Those who answered in negative, might be wondering, seriously, how hard can it be to boil an egg? You take water, put the eggs in it and put it on the stove.

No dude, it’s not as easy as it looks, what goes behind that hard shell is a deep mystery.
How long does it need to boil?
Should the stove be on full?
How do I know it’s boiled?

You can keep on staring at the eggs, for minutes and it would still look the same. The water boils, making the egg jump but it still is that same round white thing with its shell.
But then when you take it out after a few mins, and remove the shell it’s a completely different thing more edible than it was before.

Well, this is not a blog on cooking and I am the last person anyone would come for cooking advice.

I just feel, our life is like the egg, in the beginning, we are not sure, how long it will take us, to become the person we desire to be. There are so many hurdles we need to cross but those hurdles are like the heat, we need them.
It may appear to be insignificant at the moment but in the long run, that heat is what shapes us from the inside.

Let’s Keep smiling, keep moving, in the end we’ll turn out to be a tasty egg!
