i can understand when you say...pending jobs! life in a b-school is all about rushing to meet one deadline after another. The moment one deadline is reached , there's an another one hanging the right next day or two! The sad part is that the road ahead is strewn with loads of deadlines and though u fininsh one its not the end of the road. Life goes on and on except for the quaint sunday evening when you are having a cup of chai , you realise that its been a week past by and there are more jobs left for the week ahead. Somewhere down the line you wish to give it all up and just sit back, but then a few seconds of doing that .............it strikes to you that the roomie next to you is burning the mid-night oil writing a paper/contest. its a dog-eat-dog world ,after all. So you are back on the chair ...... working!
Phew! whatta life. But i guess you start learning to love the running and you learn to take one thing at a time! And you are left to wishing that it would be nice if the rabbit won the race in the Tortoise and the Turtle story with just one burst of sprint rather than tortoise labouring and labouring to win it!
oops...realise its not my blog rather..gmail. Anyways....who cares!

macha.. this time wen i went home.. i got into one of those discussion
me and abi hv...
i casually remarked tat once i get into a job, i will hv max fun.. and
he mentioned the dog eat dog part...
come to thnk of it, isnt it a choice we r making.. we cn mk the other
choice.. one of leading life in a much relaxed manner; watch movies,
go to the gym, do wat u like most, go for nature walks for instance..
but no, we choose the latter... knowing tat it is gonna be hectic with
no time to do all we want...
in spite of hving a choice, we choose teh wrong one.. becos of
societal/peer/family pressures/expectations and then we later crib abt
it.. not fair na...
we had a choice.. we jst couldnt choose wat we want... or is it tat
this is wat we want...
so junta out there reading this, wat do u think?
