Being a weekend, just as I’ve been living them past a few weeks, I woke up late. Sat on my bed thinking of what all could I do and suddenly my brain knocked up saying “Hello! Do you see it’s been a week that you last cleaned your house? Saturday.Come on! Get up. Time to clean”. Just when I was going to ignore this thought, my flat mate knocked my room door hard saying “Let’s get past this cleaning stuff at the earliest”.
I woke up cursing the monotonous weekend. Times have changed so much that I no longer crave for weekends, I enjoy week days more! But realizing that I am void of powers of changing the worldwide accepted schedule, I got up, soaked a few of my clothes, did my share of cleaning the house and got a long chill bath, cooked and ate.
What next now?
My life has come to point where it is devoid of any thrill or excitement.We,a group of colleagues, have visited almost all the places that are listed in the ‘Places to visit in Hyderabad’ and for the ‘Weekend gateways from Hyderabad’, we,being first time earners and not boasting big bank balances,still give it a second thought. I hope that changes after a few months. :P
The day pitied us and sent off the sun soon. Just when I was downloading some pretty cool apps from the app store, my best friend, who is preparing for her CA final exams and has her exams from tomorrow called me and we chatted for about 10-15 minutes talking all crazy stuff.
While talking to her, a momentary excitement filled up my life. It felt as if I was going to appear for an examination. All the stationery shopping, that nervousness, that thrill. I feel today that I actually like the feeling I have before an examination. All that is now lost somewhere amidst the performance bonuses and appraisals. I was so thrilled and excited when while talking that it made her say from the other end “Why don’t you go and appear for my examinations on my behalf”. I thought, ”Oh God!I wish I could.How badly I want to.”
There’s something special when you’re examined for whatever you’ve read and prepared for. And the feeling of acing it is just incomparable!
Wishing you all the very best Pranji! J
