Twiddling thumbs…purposefully ;)

8 Sep

September is going to be a month of waiting.

Waiting for my viva.

Waiting to officially hear of the results of the PhD application.

Waiting to know what my plans will look like for the rest of the year.

All this waiting was making me think I needed to suspend life until

But then I saw that there was another option as far as perspectives go. I choose to see this as a month where I have the luxury to just do things. Use this month to ‘chill’ so to speak. Finish my Artemis Fowl (the last in the series, which is what I’m reading, ought to make Eoin Colfer embarassed for having sold out to the sequel pressure), read more Rushdie (I can’t help loving his work), see more of Calcutta, etc. So that is what I am doing.

Mostly 😛

This is also a good time to process the fact that the self is never done with pushing its limits. And that it doesn’t give a damn that a lot of limits were but recently pushed. And that it isn’t willing to let the new-found equilibrium be. But I guess if the equilibrium can be disturbed, it must mean that it wasn’t. Nobody ever found God by saying ‘ok, this much but no more.’ 🙂

    The self is never done with, you are so right. I have written somewhere that often ” the most interesting conversations we have are often with ourselves” and so they are in the way we aim to live a richer more meaningful life: everyday is precious. That much I know

      You’re right. It is preferable to think of them as interesting as opposed to annoying and pedantic. 🙂
