technology gets the better of me sometimes. but lately i’ve been more absent-minded than usual. I find my brain reacting more slowly to reminders of daily chores and the most mundane requests.
person: ‘mansi could u please get the yadayada from the fridge’
i stare at the person for a speck too long. walk too slow. my fingers linger on the fridge handle for nothing.
But also i have been dealing with bigger ideas in my course and in critical thinking. I suppose it goes hand in hand? like how Archimedes totally forgot he wasn’t wearing clothes when he figured out density in his original Eureka! moment. not that I’m annnnyy smarter or dumber than before. i’m just compelled to apply myself a lot more nowadays. more discipline is required perhaps.
2014 so far has been a good year in terms of getting rid of everything that bothered me in 2013. there have also been some ridiculous events, not of your typical college sort.
majority of people have crazy college tales. but i wonder how many have tales they’ll keep safe within their own mind forever? and not eagerly share as a party maker.
i wish school till date had instead taught us how to be hustlers. if there is one thing i will try to educate my children about, it is that a society based on meritocracy as its primary core principle is an idealistic and non-existent society. i do applaud all education policy makers who try to sculpt it into that, but i am afraid you have only succeeded marginally.
ultimately, it is all about location, location, location.
