Life's Like That

Life's THIS bad?

Life...its a funny thing. You start out on what you think is a straight sunshiny road and then bang!! Suddenly there are twists and turns and you end up lost in a dense jungle and you just don’t know how to get back on the nice sunshiny road anymore.

Vague though that is, it does describe my life over the past few months. So I left my job, left a field I detested, joined a new place that a friend recommended and now I’m trapped in a hell-hole with no escape in sight. Getting out of bed and dragging myself to work is getting increasingly difficult. PR was frustrating and my clients doubly so, but at least, at the end of the day, I always got a laugh out of my interactions with them. If I stick around here long enough, I think I’ll forget how to laugh. And that just wouldn’t do would it? Therefore, I will try to return to blogging. Since I started this blog, it’s been the place where I vent, reveal my eccentricities and mull over the strange things that seem to continually happen to me. And that is how it shall be!

Having written this much, I’m suddenly at a loss for things to write. I could write about my driving experiences and the drunk man who gave me 800 bucks on the road, but I think that deserves a separate post altogether. I could write about the frustrating experience of living with a Boy, but oh…I could go on till the end of time on that one, so maybe some other time? I could write about my perennial weight problems, but that’s too depressing and given the general depressing state of my life right now I might just burst into tears. I haven’t read any great books lately. I have seen a few films of late…and several questions come to mind when I think back on them:

Jab We Met: Was Shahid Kapoor always this cute and likeable?

Welcome: Why was this a hit? Why did the Boy's office have to give us free tickets for THIS movie?

Aaja Nach Le: Who is cuter..Akshay Khanna in a slightly balding way or Kunal Kapoor in a totally un-shampooed way?

Jodha Akbar: How did Aishwarya Rai hold her head straight with all that jewellery on? And on a somewhat unrelated note, am I the only one who thinks Amitabh Bachchan is an ANNOYING old man who should possibly consider retiring? Also, on a completely unrelated note, did any of you see Jaya Bachchan at Cannes? In that hideous green outfit? That woman should be banned from leaving the house looking like a large green onion.

U Me and Hum: Why did I think it would be a good idea to watch this?

Tashan: I’m speechless.

Prince Caspian: Is it very weird and unnatural to have a humongous crush on a lion? *giggle*

On this note, I shall end this post. I shall hopefully be back again soon. Maybe next time I’ll tell you about the daschund that has been terrorizing me or the day I almost died, or just bitch about the Job.

Actually, while on the Job topic…someone PLEASE find me another job. Pretty please!!?

  • Hey do you know Greatbong's giving out iPods for first commenters? Do you have a similar offer on?

    Ok, and it is weird to have a crush on a lion. Even if he speaks with Liam Neeson's voice.

    And how can you talk about weight problems and not mention your fantabulous new motivated, dedicated, enthusiastic, beautiful, sexy gym partner?

  • Hi ,

    I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be wow.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog Life's Like That took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

    BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

    This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

    Cheers,

    Secondly its time time u accepted there is no such thing as "Job satisfaction!"...Job and satisfaction dont go together...how can you ever like working when you have soooo many better ways to spend ur life????????
    Thirdly..NO its not unnatural to have a crush on Azlan..join the gang...and after deep thot have realised...Azlan is just our "ideal man" in a lions body..sigh!!!

  • wow a gud read especially on a lazy summer afternoon when work is the last thing on my mind.. awww Ron dontcha worry-- sunshine will come thru again and once again birds will chirp( actually it chirps a lot for me coz its my colleague's ring tone).. I loved th voice of Aslan but sadly neva got to watch the latest one-- was he as awe inspiring as usual? dont worry -- u aint alone in the long depressing mundane mechanical life-- makes me wanna scream sometimes...
    oh plzz tell abt the day u almost died--
