Confessions of a lazy mind

Where sunshine is stored in glass bottles.


Facebook and I

So recently a 'friend' posted her engagement pics. On Facebook. So did many more actually. I am in that age bracket where it will keep happening for quite some time, and whenever it happens, it makes me happy on some level if they are, or were my actual friends at some point of time, or if in my eyes they are really nice people. On the other hand, if they are just Facebook 'friends, then the happiness factor is well, er, ok-ish?

This common reaction is followed by a 'like' most of the times. It has become a reflex action sort of. And what follows next is a strange, or not so strange mixture of feelings, none too complicated as I would like to make them sound, in my quest of denial. Tinge of envy, slight disappointment - my number isn't up yet, the counter-voice that my life is my own, and its OK if I choose to walk a it bit differently.

It all disappears more or less, when that Facebook window is closed. I wonder if others have experienced a similar feeling on Facebook, or any other social network, real or online, with regards to any issue, similar or different.

A friend posted a debating update about whether Facebook makes us happier or lonelier. Its funny, how our need for socialization itself is at times a double edged sword. I have seen the same repeating in real life interactions as well, but the scale is massive in online because you are 'connected' with so many more people. Peer pressure, may lie at the core.

The society around me has more or less dictated life like follows:

Kid --> Education --> Adult --> Career (Sometimes optional) --> Marriage --> Kid --> Repeat

A deviation from the non optional (as deemed by the majority) is likely to be viewed by the majority as a failure of sorts.

I find the paradox in a human being especially amazing - one who wishes and cherishes, above all else, perhaps, his freedom, his free will and his independence, but who is also most likely to live his life on a path charted by his peers.

I wonder, if each one of us closed our eyes and opened them into a reality where we are indeed free to follow our own consciousness, what destiny would be carved by our very two hands, free from the likely uninvited helpings hands of others?

Picking up pieces, taking baby steps and getting better bit by bit doesn't feel bad :) Hope I can keep it up!

Randomly, AKFG, Spyair, Prague, Suga, Spitz I love you all. Power of song is amazing. Its nice to have something always playing in your head!

Right now, I'm trying to talk to the fangirl in me. Somewhere while sorting RL, I think I left her behind in the past year. ><

I think we will get along again, I mean there is Reborn annnd there is Shintenipuri :) So yesh, hoping the sleeping muses will wake up soon. I need to write, write, write.

Its safe to say, I think, after a long, long pattern of headesking, mistakes, silliness and of course, the stuff that unexpectedly goes right when you least expect it to, I'm changing the way I have wanted to.

And caught up with Naruto, finally :D :D :D much shininess *______*

Happy Holidays!

Is unfair. I probably failed you a million times and one. I always, always kept quiet, and yet you listened. And now I have a million things to say but I can't.

Thank you for being my friend. Am lucky to have known you.

Finally :) Its already been a year in college, and saw some kids from the new batches, and a friend randomly mentioned - even you get to be a senior! >> not that I know what he meant by that I have been a teacher! being a senior is no big deal !>> but yesh it still feels nice and funny >> 

xD so yes its bk to school for another year. Summer hardly felt like summer, those of you who have me on fb must have seen the spam xD I spent my summer in Kenya *-* lovely place, lovely weather. Sadly I didn't see lions D= >> buuut am def going bk there to see them someday xD

it does feel a wee bit strange to update this journal after God knows how long >> but I still stalk people here >> just fail at posting is all >> annnd I missed it xD so you get random update :) hoping to be more regular and spam more =]

muses have been sleepy but I have been logging them here and there, hopefully they'll be up soon to break the hiatus at Midori's. I'll still wait for college to settle down a bit.


Annnd if you guys(girls) have watched any good shows over the past few months, tell, cause I'm looking for new stuff to watch xD

>> and brain wants to stop. Its past 1:30 at night/morn so it was failing anyways xD

*waves to flist*
