Scatterings of the year thus far.
I stumbled out of bed this morning going WAIT WAIT WHA—? Its June already, we’ve officially toed the half way mark across twenty eleven. Damn. That was fast.
Brought to mind the new year resolution i whispered to myself at the stroke of midnight on the first of january amidst sparklers,loud music and exhilarated laughter: This is going to be the best year of my life
It’s working out, its working out. I feel myself making a conscious effort to improve various aspects of my self/life while remaining completely at ease/satisfied/contented/appreciative/grateful for everything and everyone around me already. I feel myself soaking in new experiences, plunging and immersing into spontaneity, i feel myself laughing louder, venturing into new things more boldly, talking to complete strangers with enthusiasm.
I think i have said this before, but the affliction of time (or the lack of it) impresses itself upon me more than ever and consequently results in more intensity poured into whatever i do because of the consistent awareness of my lack of time.
Dont get me wrong: i love my work, but because of the immense amount of my time devoted to my job, everything else is more vivid- the fact that i only have this precious window of time afterwork/beforehome/weekends leads to a concentrated determination to make it count as compared to the diluted and easygoing floating along of my pre-2011 self.
Change is upon us, you giggled, and i responded
Change is Constant
with all the seriousness of a poker-faced card dealer doling out cliche lines
tumblin into laughter
A rough evaluation of my year thus far over the past week- highly satisfying, but the search for fresh, new and spontaneous action is persistent. The Best year of my life has gone by halfways and in two months i will be bonded to an educational institute again, something i welcome with open arms and an open mind, but inbetween then and now;
Email exchanges, A proper accounting and appraisal of my bank account (slaps self, STOP BUYING THINGS YOU WONT USE), A breath of fresh air, and the murmur of something new happening
I am excited
