Gloomy Days

Every once in a while a day comes when I do - nothing. Nothing as in – nothing. I don't get outta bed in the morning and get on with my life. I just ponder around the whole day thinking about the bigger things in life. What am gonna do next and all the general nonsense that we are expected to plan. Today happened to be one of those days when I really wished we came with expiry dates (I read that blog post of mine again today, and I can’t believe that I was as good at bull$hitting pre-MBA, as I am now :) !!).

Its always been very difficult for me to lead my life without a purpose. After all, when we look at life through the perspective of greater scheme of things, we are here for nothing (yeah I know I have made a few of you sit and listen to my whining about our worthlessness ;) !!). So unless we set goals for ourselves, we are heading towards nowhere, which eventually we all anyway are.

Well, I don’t know why I wrote this blog post. Probably I will delete it later. As I wait for this day to get over, I felt like writing this out to you. Tomorrow will be a better day, it always is. Its always better to think short-term rather than plan for the future. Long-term plans have so much uncertainty that they never work out.

Finally, seeing 2012 yesterday seems to have had a deep impact on my rather impressionable mind. 21st December 2012 is not far away ;) !! You have 3 years to go to the ark :) !! That reminds me, the sad part of the movie was – no Indian was thought worthy enough to be saved and put on the ark to be part of the new world. So much for being 1 in 6 of the world population today!


  1. we all lose sight of the beacon sometimes.. Brace..

  2. oh girish.. today I think the whole world wants me to be sad..But keep long term goals.. and work on short term... If nothing works then just go to bed :)...

  3. hehe I think the movie really got to you.

    I asked myself the other day - what would I think of my own life if the world ended?
    I would think: Shit! I still have so much to do. I haven't even really gotten started yet!

    So you're not alone. Things will always be better tmr =)

  4. @Wiki, @Pam, @Angela. Thanks for your wishes. I think I just get low sometimes :) !! Expecting too much out of my mundane life I guess! I should just eat, sleep and be merry :) !!
