Another year is coming to an end. And I am sad. I am sad because I didn’t really make this one count. For that matter I haven’t made the last 23 years count either. Everyday I go to sleep, not because I am tired and exhausted by the day’s work, but because I have nothing better to do. I don’t remember the last time I slept after being completely spent and used; each and every muscle of my body aching for some respite from the hard work. I don’t remember the last time I said out loud, “That is a good day’s work. I need some rest now.” There are no accomplishments since there are no goals. I am just hanging on to one last ray of hope – the confidence that I am on the right path – the path that leads to being satisfied at the end of the day. That is the goal of my otherwise goal-less life: to sleep when I am exhausted because of the day’s work.
- 2 Breakups.
- Messed up life at Office.
- Almost nothing significant programming.
- No concept went from drawing board to implementation.
- Lots of Lamenting.
- 4 times bankruptcy.
- Met some very horrible people.(Praying for you guys to ROT in hell)
In short : Health gone, Wealth gone and Mind gone.
The last 2 years had also been fruitful in few ways and those few ways are going to decide the next coming years will be.
- Performance Testing/Engineering
- Human Computer Interaction.
- To MBA or Not to MBA?
Performance Testing/Engineering isn’t that bad as I was told early on.They said bad things about it because they don’t know a single thing about it and also have no interest in learning about it. They are just swimming with the flow that only “development” jobs are good. God save you guys , because I am now tired of explaining things to you. It would be nice if you open your eyes and read some REAL things and try to understand it if you can/are able to.

I like programming and love technology from early on but what is the use of all that if people aren’t using it. There Human Computer Interaction comes into play. It is a very big thing and I can’t summarize it in few lines. So you can go to these links and give yourself some good food for thoughts.
MBA is a controversial topic for me. Every morning I want to do it and everyday before dozing off I decides MBA is for the people who can’t do anything on their own. I may be wrong , I may be right. But I have seen a hell lot of people to whom MBA didn’t help a lot and I still have to meet someone who can truly justify to me MBA was worthwhile to them.
It is almost time to make some New Year resolutions. And this could take some time as deciding practical things takes time. So I’ll leave you with these thoughts:
The minute a man is convinced that he is interesting, he isn’t.
But more than that shoot out to the Egg Biryani Girl who has a million-dollar smile whom I saw five times in the last seven days.It is my firm belief that this is the Universe’s way of telling me to wake up and do something about my life. Opportunity has knocked on my door a number of times, it has even gatecrashed into my life’s boring party a number of times but I have been too dumb-witted to recognize it. Anthony Hopkins said in ‘Meet Joe Black’: Lightning may strike. And I have been waiting a long time for lightning to strike. But it hasn’t.
