Even as I am trying hard to keep my eyes open (the sleepiness that creeps in post lunch!), a dozen thoughts flash through my mind and I have started pondering over the questions that I have been asking myself for quite sometime now. Hasnโ€™t predictability crept into my life in the form of things that I do everyday? Have I not got settled into this routine a bit too comfortably? Everything from the music that I listen to, the movies that I watch, the concerts that I go for, the newspapers, books & blogs that I read, the websites that I visit, to the food that I eat, the work that I do, the people whom I chat with, seems to have an air of predictability to it. Thereโ€™s predictability in every single thing that I do! A kind of monotony seems to have crept in. But then I am not complaining about it at all and I do like it most of the times. Despite that, the urge to break free from this routine does make a grand appearance once in a while and now is one such moment. But what do I do to achieve that is THE big question!

    Hmm…same here. At times, it gets very dull and monotonous. Doing something one normally wouldnt do help. But what – is the question. True. Maybe taking a break and lazing around with nothing in particular to do would help.

    Mmmm, it used to be like that when I was in India. Over here, somehow I manage to travel a bit and get over those monotonous days.
    I say get married. ๐Ÿ˜›

    Long time.
    -Anyway. Gayathri is getting married herself, and spreading the cheer halfway around the world (though closer home) I see. Brilliant idea.
    -Talking of Quarter Life Crisis, there’s a web show by the same name. 7-min episodes, some 20 of them I think. Check out.
    -Goto, choose a genre, and discover new artists that play similar music. Haven’t tried Indian songs on that site. You are hooked onto Rahman for life, maybe you’ll find something else.
    -Write a science-fiction book on the way to/from work.
    -Go to Australia and feed a giraffe.
    -Help out Gayathri’s WM.
    -Learn German.

    Yup really long time.

    Yeah she is indeed spreading the cheer but as I said in reply to her comment just now, am looking for ideas other than that.

    Shall check out the show &

    Me writing a science-fiction? Very funny!

    >-Go to Australia and feed a giraffe.
    Why on earth should I do that??

    >Help out Gayathriโ€™s WM.

    I have been thinking of learning a new language for quite sometime now. But may I know why German?

    >Cut a rap album.
    A brilliant idea indeed! I myself will not be able to bear hearing it!

    >I will do some of those myself.
    Which are the ones? Getting married? ๐Ÿ˜›

    No, I am not getting married ๐Ÿ˜

    > German is as good a language as any. Besides, I am told it has possibly the strictest grammar rules, which makes it easier to learn.
    > About your rap album, I’ll listen to it!
    > I hear Australia is a nice place. So you should go there. And as long as you are there, why not feed a giraffe? What’s the giraffe done that you refuse to feed it?
    > Science fiction is a brilliant idea. We need more science fiction in the world.

    Say, I have another idea for you. Write poetry, and publish on the blog.

    Oh. Then maybe I should try learning German. I was thinking of learning French..

    Don’t you have better things to listen to? ๐Ÿ˜›

    Why a giraffe? Why not a kangaroo?

    Then maybe you should try writing a science fiction.

    No way! Poetry doesn’t interest me much and there are only a few poems I remember enjoying. Besides, I don’t think I possess the skills to write poetry ๐Ÿ˜›
