So here I am at the supposed crossroads of my life. I've been told that this is the next big milestone in my life: My Graduation.
Why am I writing this blog !!?
Out of all the post-graduation advices I've got.. There was one piece of advice that got me thinking and it read something like this,
"You have your whole life to figure out where you are going to live and work. Live a little. You are only young once. But whatever you choose to do, do it whole-heartedly and don’t give up. Find your own path and remember that every other college graduate out there is going through his/her own turmoil just like you."
After thinking about it for some time. I ended up thinking.. hmmm that does make sense doesnt it.
So here we are, in our twenties, thinking that we’ll have another 40 years to go. Four decades in which to live long and prosper.
Bad news. Read the papers. There are people dropping dead when they’re 50, 40, 30 years old. Or quite possibly just after finishing their convocation. They would be very disappointed that they didn’t live the number of years they expected to.
This is the truth as I see it. Our life as we know it is over. When we were in college, all of us probably felt like it was never going to end. You felt untouchable, invincible, that you could do anything you wanted. Things change. Life is not fair. Everything does not balance out in the end. Life happens, and as much as we hate it, we have almost no control over it. Good and bad things happen to you day by day, hour by hour, moment by moment.
I've been told that I will have to 'Work' now. Get a job and do stuff people expect you to do.
I Won't !!
People who know me well will tell you that, I hate doing 'Work'.
Work is anything that you are compelled to do. By its very nature, it is undesirable.
There’s a common misconception that work is necessary. You will meet people working at miserable jobs. They tell you they are “making a living”. No, they’re not. They’re dying, frittering away their fast-extinguishing lives doing things which are, at best, meaningless and, at worst, harmful.Why waste the vast majority of my life doing something I hate, so that I can spend the small remainder sliver of my life in modest comfort.
I may never reach that end anyway.
I know there will be some who will say that it is easy for some to write and talk about it.So its up to you to figure out what is best for you..
As for me. I've decided to "Seize the Day". I'll go back to College, I miss that damned life too much. I feel there is still a lot I have to learn and Im not talking about the stuff books teach you. Of all the lessons I've learned in College the ones which mattered are the one I've learned outside the classroom.
So it's up to you to do what you love now. Before you will hate yourself for turning your life into a boring routine.
