Fools never see paradise, all they do is knock at the door and go back home. Made that choice - FOCUS shift:  next 90 days - the countdown begins!

This place

I am going through what I did forsee in 2012. The storyline is exactly what I boarded, perhaps a few years late. New scenes, different people, team dynamics, wonderful friendships, social pressure and tough decisions, I must confess that I am not the social animal or party goer of this place, but I know I have my own way, views about this and it is working (atleast sometimes). 

I really don't think people would understand if I told them the real reason for which I am here at this place and fair enough the reason may not be convincing enough, but it convinces me. Of-course, there are Ups and Downs - the Ups are celebrated, the Downs are also celebrated with a ding bell, you hit that, and someone around you would give you a nice hug and get you a beer!

I'd learn alot of intellectual stuff, met amazing people and experienced something I have never even remotely thought of - all that happened so far, but the most interesting part is the music that I started tapping to, and I dont believe it - but one gradually starts liking it - I like the honesty with which people claim to be fans and dance to these songs like there is no tomorrow.

People dance to this at every party, and I must confess the song is catchy, you could dance for all 4 minutes of this song!

Justin Beiber

This is a bummer, I would have disowned anyone who would have told me that they like this song! But I found so many who actually do. I must confess, the more I listen to this, the lyrics make that much sense. 

Yeah
Is it too late now to say sorry?
'Cause I'm missing more than just your body, oh

I'm not just trying to get you back on me (oh, no, no)
'Cause I'm missing more than just your body (your body), oh

The Chainsmokers

This is a personal favourite, there is something about this song that one can't ignore and love the lyrics!

Hey, I was doing just fine before I met you
I drink too much and that's an issue
But I'm OK
Hey, you tell your friends it was nice to meet them
But I hope I never see them
Again

So one must wonder, if this is what this place taught me - well yes, it taught me that everything has a good side to it, you got to view it with an open mind and perspective! As I embark on my next destination, hoping for many more great things in the year!

Fast n Furious

For someone who has grown with Fast & Furious over the years, and has always wanted to see it just for the crazy car stunts, this franchise is now more than just cars. Without going into much details of the fact that I watched an entire day of F & F movies last sunday, the lasting impression this week was the tribute to Paul Walker which is so much true for anyone's life. Watch the whole video and especially from 2:54 which is what I try to elaborate below.

Friendship starts when two people begin a journey in parallel, see dreams together and in the quest to achieve those dreams - move away from each other but the message that would resonate forever between the two:

"It's been a long day without you, my friend
And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again
We've come a long way from where we began
Oh, I'll tell you all about it when I see you again

When I see you again"

Change

However cliche this sounds -

"Change is the only constant in life,  the rest are only variables floating in space"

Ho Hey

its been a long time since I have been here. Nothing much to say-- hence a song I like:

this one has been in an infinite loop in my brain on a Saturday morning.

I think the next post may be the last one - this blog ends with it as I embark upon a new journey in India..!

Wisely foolish

"Its wise to stay foolish-the wise is who struggles to make a choice out of all options, the fool can only be rewarded with no options but one choice."
