This is lunch after I decided to buy a bike today. I love bicycles. Have always loved them. When I read that this metropolis was one of the world’s biker cities I was like… Yes! Nevermind that scholarship I’ll bike to college. Another lie. But I did get a second hand bike. I froze today and was a zombie riding in -17C. Talk about experiences.
Why the peanuts? Because I spent $80 on the bike. Friends were like if you want to cheap bike you’ll spend at least $200 and get a decent bike. I didn’t like the idea of anything beyond $70. So, yes, I’m disappointed. In other news I’m a bit demotivated as well. Too much D in my life right now.
I realize that my choices have changed. I feel I’ve grown up. I don’t revel in science fiction anymore. I admire the sense of higher purpose more than I can tell if things are making sense. I battle with my own inner wolf and would like to give it speech but keep defeating it. Though victory is not in it’s defeat.
In the real world spoke to McKinsey consultant today. Felt myself get confused at the reactions I received. Got comfortable and then felt futile. I’m not even a good poet. That’s how random I was when I was speaking.
On another note I realized some memories just stay for a very long time. Good memories of bad times. The times were bad but someone genuineness was the good memory.
I’m not a quant but I have a inkling of how things will come. I have an inkling of how a person will behave when I interact with them, when I look at them. That’s why I am confused when I look at the mirror. Maybe it is bad to look at mirrors at night. I’ve never felt anyone beside me or behind me but today I feel an eerie presence.
Yes attention disorder is a thing. So, are the opportunities flying in the face of people who grasp any chance to improve and grow. While I sit in the coffee shop and listen to music, write, read, look at people interact, flip-flop between browser tabs, skip songs and then order food and sip my drink it’s easy to observe that I am distracted at any of those (mostly) trivial tasks. However it is also the age where information, knowledge and experiences whether curated or not, are abundant. On the other hand one can continue to do their work undisturbed and still be able to focus on the task at hand. However he or she might even miss opportunities to excel at things that they hadn’t observed, read, seen or experienced. I don’t think this is an excellent observation or unheard of conclusion to derive. I just want to throw this out there and think out aloud.
Thank you for 2017 and providing me different options and opportunities.
Thank you for teaching my how to live and be organized. Today is the 1st and I’m off to a good start.
Now on to larger things in life and be less distracted.
Happy New Year…
The first time I’m writing a blog on a new year’s day. Well wish you and me a Happy New Year. I don’t know if I have any plans but in case I do I will keep you posted. This seems too out of ordinary because everyone is doing something to be celebrating the new year. I’m anxious about it. I’m sure a lot of other people are too but everyone’s celebrating. Maybe this is what it means to look at the bright side of things… Celebrate when you know not where you are headed. Celebrate in a 24 hr/ 365 days/ 100 years simulation. Revel in the obnoxiousness of knowing nothing. Oh! this reeks of pessimism…
So much for following earnings calls and a steady habit to post on my blog! I couldn’t convince and keep up to keep writing. I’m somewhere in the middle of my winter break. Hello again world! How is it going? I’ve grown up now. I listen to audio books, I talk about sustained competitive advantages and I try to create niches in the market by evaluating industry opportunities. No. I was just messing with you. I have learnt a lot in the past few weeks though. I had good experiences and I’m losing my skills because I’m not practicing enough.
Just writing one paragraph makes me feel this is good practice. Is it interesting to read haphazard thoughts? I don’t know. Tell me? Everything I read, more watch, these days has so much structure. Everything is carefully organized and curated to garner more followers. I remember when I was younger if ever I came across interesting content it would stay with me. When I started reading the first few pages of Infinite Jest it stayed with me. I was daunted by the size of the book but it stayed with me. Now, not so much. Every time I come across some (read any) content I am not stimulated. I’m not sure because I’m now numbed down or because everything is shiny and bright (read curated).
If you’re still wondering why I have that title you’re in the right place. It’s just that my thoughts veer between things and I had many other things to say before talking about a company I admire. Now I want to talk about that company but I also want to stay honest and stay true to what I’ve said above. These thoughts are haphazard.
Idea for the day: It would be better if WordPress organized and pushed out updates. Maybe it already does. This is modern soliloquy.
This blog like everything else I have done in life is quite intermittent. I would like to restart. Yes, hello world!
MBA school is going fine. Hectic? Yes! One week to go with the first semester. Have I learnt stuff? Absolutely! Would I recommend an MBA? Depends! What does my day look like today? Almost like a very typical MBA day: I’m visiting an employer for a “site visit”. Have to get some homework done. Have to prepare for my finals next week. Am I slacking? Yes. Do I have to keep my spirits up and keep pounding? YES!
