Damn. He still does! What dedication, sir! I bow to thee. I am pretty sure I am not as occupied as him to quote the universal reason of being too "busy" to update my blog. I guess priority on my writing has diminished somewhere in the whirlpool of life and I am digging down deep to bring it out today. Whether you call it nonsense or mediocre reading, my fingers just type away on their own when they fall on a keyboard. Sometimes they are quicker than my thoughts. And as always, I get the familiar itch of writing whenever I begin this phase.
So, what have I been up to? This and that; and much more. I am currently unemployed (I don't know whether that is the right word to use as I seem to be busier than I was when I had a regular day job 😅), on the lookout for a job, but quite content with what I've been doing. I've enrolled myself to two quite interesting courses on Coursera: Machine Learning and Script Writing; I'm assisting a start-up, Adapt Ready, with some of their work in the insurance domain, again very interesting and stimulating; and I am exploring cafés and restaurants and feeling like a tourist in my own hometown 😆, thanks to Divya; and of course, all these don't even come close to taking care of my baby girl, Ravya, who is all of 13 months old now, and has started walking and talking, both baby steps.
Thoughts these days mostly wander to somewhat similar ones as mentioned in my mid-life crisis post. Though this post is 4 years old, most of the thoughts and conversations with friends, family, people of similar age, remain similar. IT for how long? I want to start something on my own, but I either don't have the capital, or the courage, or ideas or experience? What is the point in getting married or having kids? How can I give something back to the society? All I want to do is take a backpack and go live in different countries for a couple of years. Basically boils down to What am I doing and where am I headed?
I guess if we had answers to these questions, discovering things newly wouldn't have been interesting? I am sure many of us have our own versions of answers or beliefs that keep us going.
Signing off on a note to self, prompting me to visit this place more often. Ciao...and be back soon!
