Mind Games ( mebbe it shud be called "Mind Your Own games")

this blogging thing sometimes gets really infectious..like u get soo absorbed tht evry time sthg happens the first thot that runs thru is "hmm..i gotta blog this"..i had been reading quite a few blogs lately so got really bitten by the blog-bug(whaoh...i am sure thts a good tongue-twister..anybody out there who can say "blog-bug" ten times in a row--raise ur hands!!!) :-D

hah--the whole point of wht i have written above is to let u ppl know why i have written wht i have written below!!!(gee !!! i like tht sentence..quite a gem isnt it?? )

Monday was a really depressing day for me..well come to think of it it wasnt a 'depressing day' coz nthg really happened to depress me..it was jus tht i was generally jus very depressed..n the reason was pbbly wat some ppl now term as the "quarter-life crisis"..i mean u kinda wake up one day n start wondering--"where is my life going?" , "wat do i want to do in life" etc etc n then u seem stuck coz u really cant find the answers..n the worse part is u know tht u r the only person who can really answer those questions..hmm..so as i was saying the day started off like tht n when a day starts off like tht there very few things tht can help it get any better..n so it didnt get any better( thankfully it didnt get any worse either!!!) ..cudn concentrate on work at all n so decided to leave by six itself though i had come in late..n in the bus i tried to cheer myself up by digging into a PGW but even tht didnt cheer me up:-( ( i sadly realised tht somedays even the great 'Plum' cant weave his magic)..n then i sat there lost in thot..n i dunno when exactly my attention got diverted to the mobile in the hand of the guy sitting in front of me..the guy was wroking away on a 'game' on his cell fervently trying to get a ball of some sort thru a maze of walls n caverns filled with monsters(which wud eat up the 'ball') n some such other stuff.it was a gud ten minutes(atleast!! ) before i realised tht i had been staring at this guys cell.in fact i had gotten soo involvd i was leaning fwd in my seat to watch the prress of the game.when i realised tht i was actually being such a 'peeping-tom' i nearly squirmed in embarassment n as a natural reaction slowly turned arnd to see if anyone had been watching-- n wat do i see??..two guys sitting on the seat next to me were looking at me n grinning!!one of those moments when u wish the earth wud jus swallow u up or sthg like tht!(i have had quite a few such moments..mebbe i will blog abt all those one of these days!!!) but since i was neither invisible nor 'swallowed-up' by the bus/seat i had to react..n all i cud manage was a rather weak smile..it must have been one of the most sheepish smiles i have ever given anybody.then i promptly started 'dozing-off' n didnt open my eyes till the bus came to my place...

i reached home n after sometime i realised tht i was actually feeling quite cheerful.the whole incident n the whole embarassment had somehow actually livened up my mood quite a bit.. :-)

th mind n the games it plays!!!!!

    that must have been one funny moment. I bet you were smiling and chuckling to yourself too when you got off the bus and kept thinking about that moment. :-)

    And the "quarterlife crisis" is a pan-Indian phenomenon these days. I too blogged on this a long time back and had an interesting debate with another blog-friend of mine.
