Wow! It’s been a long time since I wrote a blog entry. It has actually been a long time since I wrote anything. I am back into my old routine ; life has slowly slipped itself into the old routine of working on Some projects and sitting and chatting with friends at our usual hangout places. There is one difference though, a big one. This is the last year we will be in some routine job. There is a look of anticipation and nervousness on everyone’s face. Will we get a good job, will we get an MS in a reputed american university, and will we be able to make it to the IIMs. These are some of the questions on everyone’s mind. Although most of us are looking forward to the new challenges we’ll be facing in the real ‘real’ world, all of us are afraid at a certain level about leaving the secure and carefree life that these routine work companies has provided us for the last couple of years. The happy days are going to end soon. But our world will not end with a whimper; it will end with a bang.
For the first time in many years I have achieved the kind of focus I always wanted. I have slowly been feeding the monster of competitiveness which had been lying dormant inside me for the last five years. This is one side of me which most of my friends have never seen and which most of them wouldn’t like. But I have learnt a very valuable secret in the last few years: I have learned how to tame this beast that I can become. However, I am unleashing it now and the world will have to live with this new change and accept me for who I am. This is the only way I can achieve the targets I have set out for myself. I will revert back to the good old me as soon as this personal mission is fulfilled.
Life has been worrying me for some days now and my family has been trying to cheer me up. I hope some day I am able to give the same advice to my son.
