Disclaimer: The author wishes to state that the following pointless rant (as always) is the fault of  Andhra Pradesh Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) who in their great wisdom gave him the last seat on the bus from Hyderabad to Bangalore as a result of which the author was unable to get any sleep. To add to his woes, his co passenger was drunk and kept singing hindi songs whenever he woke up (which was quite a few times).

I’m already at that point where work is taking far too much of whatever time I have. Time.

                                   

Time is a fundamental structure of the universe, a dimension in which events occur in sequence. Breakthroughs in theoretical physics and long lectures by my bro have given me reason to believe that it is practically impossible/difficult to alter the sequence, extend it, reverse it or go back to a previous or future point. In essence, time sucks. Big time! Time is entirely non customizeable and just not that cool.

If there is anything that stops us from doing anything, it’s just time. I mean everything else you can build or develop over a period of…well…time. Time makes us regress, time makes us age, time makes things obsolete, time makes you smell if you don’t take a bath, time makes bread go mouldy, time causes people to drift apart etc…In short any effect in the entire universe will have it’s cause as time. Time is the ultimate cause.

I’ll be 23 in less than half a year and the thought itself sends shivers down my spine. Not becuase it hurls me closer ot death or anything but simply because I have this stupid feeling that I NEED to do something(s) with my life.

Now, over the last few weeks, work has been taking way too much of time and sometimes it pisses me off when I get calls from work during the weekend but being the ‘newbie’ I am, I can’t do much. Blogging during work hours is my way of laughing at The Man’s face. Ok maybe chuckling. Fine…grinning at The Man’s face.

I’ve got a pile of unread books, unwatched movies and more than a fair share of friends/family I haven’t been able to keep in touch with!

    You seem to be echoing my thoughts… 😦 Was thinking about the same thing a couple of days back…

    “I’ve got a pile of unread books, unwatched movies and more than a fair share of friends/family I haven’t been able to keep in touch with!”
