Of dreams and wishes

, , 21 comments
Ever felt so bored that you just opened a tin of Milo and started eating spoonfuls of plain, raw, fatty and oh-so-delicious Milo? That's just where I am - I am not interested in knowing how blogs have altered the way journalism functions, because the guy (or woman) who's written it has an awfully unreadable language that makes my eyes smart after a few minutes.

Guess this is another of those posts which might not make sense.. I just wanted to type something and here I am! With Rahman's goosebump-causing 'Dil Se Re....' in the background, it feels great to even open Blogger and type a post.. it's been that long! Life is just feverishly busy, and I find myself hugging my cushion and nodding off to sleep at every given opportunity. And worse, I dream in those ten or fifteen minutes of sleep I catch! They're funny and give me great entertainment ;), but it's irritating that my mind is so preoccupied with work. I'm scared I'm becoming a workaholic!

The few things that keep me going are the walks at night with friends, the few episodes of Grey's Anatomy I manage to steal in from time to time (which are now getting predictable and boring, by the way!!), good food that I come across extremely rarely, and music, God be blessed for it!

It's been ages since I read blogs of other people (I'm really sorry!) or even switched off my computer. The poor thing is forever on, ready to bear the brunt of my work, day and night.
The funny thing is it feels important to be busy, because this way, I manage things much better! But even then, nothing can match the comfort of laziness, the comfort of knowing nothing would go wrong if you sleep for an extra couple of hours when it's raining. Boy, I miss those times, those early weeks of the semester! I think it will be ages before I get back such a comfort again... but of course, it's all part of life - and guess I'm coping well!

Some weekend, some day, I'll write a story I've been wanting to write for a long time. Right now, I just wish there was something that could quickly note down the words forming in my head so later I can put them all together and form the story in actual black and white. I wish! Ha!

finally, an update on ur blog ... was sorta waiting with bated breath for the story u promised and instead u churned out a story about u stuffing ur mouth full of milo .... *grin* ... not what i was really expecting ....

anyway didn't know u watched grey's anatomy on a regular basis .... i am sorta hooked on the series also.... at least for the moment .... it seems like u are very busy and under lotsa stress .... try doing something more physical than juz going for walks .... maybe joggin at macritchie or kayaking or even tennis ... trust me, it helps to get rid of the stress ....
