A new dawn..

A post after a million days - thanks to some violent prodding from a certain special someone.

R: btw i am angry at you
G:?
R : since you have joined work, you seem to have put your own writing at a complete back seat
G: yea, i know
R: you work is profession, and your blog is your hobby, y don't i see your blog being updated, during maybe the most eventful period of your life?

So here i am, trying to making a post - I've gotten rusty, i have forgotten how to just write for the fun of writing. I write now with thoughts of will my editor like it, does this fit the writing style of the magazine, would people give it a second read and so on.

It's funny how life takes you to these absolute dead ends and just when you think things just can't get any worse, your brain begins to see light - the light of acceptance. Shit happens and you just learn to deal with it.

I've grown up in the past 2 months, living away from home. Suddenly there is this burst of responsibility resting on my shoulders - starting with getting my clothes washed to meeting article deadlines to jumping onto the train quickly and hanging on to anything for dear life.

Living out of home is like walking on thin glass. It takes time to get used to it. But once the mental block of "Can i do this? Am i capable enough?" is out of your head, the world is yours to rule.

You said it right. Living out of home can be agonizing and ecstatic at the same time. You have a long way to go.
Nice read!

This my friend is the fortunate period of free publishing. Let us all misuse and abuse it, till Google starts asking us to pay for their server space!

Till then, Blog On!

Life happens no matter what...It also teaches you to be a happening person going along with the flow.

Just ride the wave and soon you'l be on top of it.
