Life post idleness

Filed under: Sobriety — Teal @ 12:08 am

They say “an idle mind is a devil’s workshop”. Which is so damn true. Take it from a person whose sole occupation was that of a vetti officer from mid May to mid September. I had all the time in the world, 4 long months to do what all I wanted. But due to circumstances and many other twists of fate[both bad and good, but mostly bad] I could barely accomplish what I had planned.

Most my friends who were placed on campus went for thier last vacation before starting work. And that, they say is the most special of all, to mark the end of one phase of life and begin another one by just chilling. I , unfortunately never got to “chill” per se. I could’ve been callous about the whole concept of unemployment, but somehow I never was. I could’ve gone for a vacation in the past 4 months and had a blast! But the anger about missing out on an off-campus drive would’ve lingered till the time I landed a job. Which I ultimately did.
Vijayadashami had passed us by just a while ago and I had plans to go for classes which again is yet to materialise. =(

Ultimately, the whole pursuit of seeking a job is a struggle. And once you start working, tempus will definitely fugit. [OF course there are many of my friends who are as vetti as ever, but i refrain from revealing their identities. Now “u” guys must be able to sleep soundly :P]
But there is one thing that I have noticed post idleness. Life takes a turn for good. And when you start something new, you tend to get soo absorbed in it that people actually claim that they donot have time for their friends and other pursuits.

I for one believe that it is far from being true. People at the end of the day, do matter a lot. I would not say “neglect your job”, but I am quite sure that everyone has these few friends they wouldnt forsake for the world. I have many friends. But those who are closest to me are the most important, and I make it a point to keep in touch with them, even in the most busiest of times.

There is another revelation that I have experienced~

  • Driving upto your favourite restaurant anytime in the evening and ordering for your favourite dish…
  • Making extempore plans with friends for meeting up and hanging out[Ultimately those are the kind of “plans” that actually click for me. I was NEVER Miss.TimeTable B-) ]
  • Taking a lazy stroll on the shores of Marina and watch the sun go down….
  • Shopping in mylapore with a melting softy in your hand…
  • Visiting temple on friday evenings …

These were somethings that I did on a regular basis, to survive the job seeking phase. Ultimately, once you start working, you will come to find that all the tension and anxiety that one had gone through would seem unnessecary and unwarranted. But the human heart is so deceitful and wicked. It only tends to draw attention to what we yearn for soooo badly, which is ultimately what we dont have at that moment. So most people are seldom happy with their lives but they really donot realise what they are losing out on.

We should experiment, innovate and live every moment of our lives to the fullest.

Kya pata, kal ho na ho?

LOL .. looks like I am raving and ranting. I hope I do get the time to post often, I really do.

  1. good thoughts.. but its always say these things from outside.. once u start working and then your revelations will become a thing in the past.. you can say that people must allocate time and manage them, plan blah blah blah… but two years later you will realise………..

  5. guess this aspect is something very few people actually bother about.I’m talking about allocating some time for the buddies who gave you their shoulders to cry on when you were down..and these days, i think we can also count cousins who are on the list of oh-i-am-so-busy-therefore-i-dont-have-time-for-ppl-like-you.
    well written..as usual..
    PS:blog update btw:):)
