The plight of the indecisive

DISCLAIMER: This post is the result of heavy thesaurus usage and is in no way indicative of anything about my dumb vocabulary :D



I'm back with this blog post; breaking the undesired quiescence being the quo animo ...
I've been hankering to bang out blog posts, seriatim, but failing to do so ... , as you rightly surmised ...

I dont get time? Nah...! :D

That's laughable.

I'm this guy, who hates to promulgate the proclamation, that he's busy (leaving out GTalk statuses (albeit sporadically)) :P
I revel in being addressed as 'the jobless' ... :S

Okay, I'll cut to the chase.



'The Indecisive'

This phenomenon percolated into my life about a year and half afore.

The encumbering task of choosing one from among the confounding multitude of paths that lay ahead of me, had begun weighing me down, which sort of added to the ever-ubiquitous gravitational forces. I couldn't find out what I'd want to do after I pass out of college. It was like juggling three balls that were different chromatically. The balls represented three paths:

  1. GRE+TOEFL -> USA -> M.S.
  2. a decent job in the I.T. industry
  3. CAT -> IIM -> MBA
Very soon, I easily bumped off one of them, Ball 3; convincing myself (and my parents) that I was not ready to plunge into the scrimmage and lock horns with the 2 lakh and odd people taking up CAT and that Management was not my cup of tea.

If I'd posited that two balls was better than three, I was dead wrong.


My eyeballs are perpetually gyrating and pulling them away from the direct line of sight of the juggling is beyond the bounds of possibility, spawning a feeling of low self-worth and the irritation that ensues.


I'm nearing the end of my UnderGraduation and sadly, the juggling goes on.


The light at the end of this dark tunnel ??? Still Out of Focus to my eyes ...

Dude, Have you decided on your project yet ?? haha,

But dude youth , at this time of their life, are exasperated with "themselves" and also with the college(Univs)/parents for not providing something that they need.

And you know what we actually belong to that community,

With 2.37 lakh students already getting ready for cat, we are still bugging life with our Anna Univ Exams,
Sad but tats fate
