At the moment...!

I am sure I'll be looking back and missing these times. Well at the moment, I feel like I've got all the time in the world. I will be leaving very soon for my research work (masters degree) for which the topic is yet to be decided.

It's been about two months with this "ready to leave" mood. No mood to be working in the cubicle. All the complaints and frustrations in the office. The corruption in the form of Nepotism making our heads spin. The daily 'masala tea' with my colleagues. The odour. The PA's daily chatter on the phone. The boss trying to hog all the trainings/seminars/workshops. Some few points to help paint a mental picture of my office (including a lot of other small things that I am sure... will pass with time).

I am glad I had taken everything I did into account, in a small book with a small marking in the corner which read 2001. I was 18 and in college. I must admit that it is quite healthy to read about the past sometimes. It is an exercise which tells us that we should not be taking our life so seriously right now. At least that's what I think, I've learned. I spend the whole morning reading the book. As I was going through the pages everything came to me like it all happened yesterday. I thought about my friends, college, events, emotions and also some of the lazy times I had watched passed by. It all seemed so serious at the moment when you are living it but I guess it doesn't matter that much anymore.

With time, in what we call 'moving on' in life, we loose touch with some of the most integral and wonderful part of our lives; friends. I don't really know how I lost mine but I think I have. Call it priorities in life, responsibilities or anything, it sure does drag you down to your only self. What could you have done different if you were thrown back in time? Would you be any wiser?
