We dont need no education!

As the gods said – “we dont need no education…i am a believer in god…and i dont need no education and that’s why i haven’t learnt one thing since i passed out from B-school 6 years ago…I wonder if i actually learnt there too.

I was am one of those “smart ones”…i didn’t do medicine, CA, engineering (one more year then doing commerce/arts)…coz of the number of years/time involved in studying…i went straight from college to B-school and signed a declaration of ‘The nut does not study no more” at the ripe old age of 22.

and suddenly comes the atheist Celestial Rays who insists that we need to learn more…

So while i tremble that the gods might strike me down…

Disclaimer Real education God…Saraswati maa…pls dont make my already deteriorating brain vanish from this earth…i need it to remember my way back home from this hell called work…which btw happened because of education which happened cause i prayed to u..just saying that’s all

Anyway so while i tremble that i might be upsetting too many gods with my motor mouth..this is what i would like to learn

1. Be a connoisseur of food…i regularly watch masterchef australia, hell’s kitchen and all the food shows and i would love to dole out those beauties. I would also love to be able to taste a cheese and identify it and know the names of all those herbs and generally have the Tall one wondering what he did right to have such a well satisfied tummy

2. I would love to conquer my fear of heights. I love to trek/hike but i am scared to because while i can find my way up the hill…it’s coming down the hill which becomes an issue and i stand on top of a hill until someone offers to ring a helicopter to air lift me.

3. Learn to put on make up – yes comfy i am cheating…isn’t cheating a part of education? no?? But yes it would be nice to know before hand that my eyeliner will follow the shape of my eyes and not resemble the Himalayas with sudden peaks, that my kajal will not make me look like i am regularly beaten up and given a black eye…and yes it would be nice to know what make up involves beyond lipsticks, eyeliner and kajal

4. Be an expert at some kind of sport – i have “played” a lot of sports…but my general laziness and inherent desire not to excel…has ensured i never became an expert…

5. Yoga….i am a new convert …i never believed in yoga and thought people just exaggerated it’s benefits…but i have been doing some amount of yoga in the last six months and i have to say…it feels good. At my abysmal levels of around 45 mins of yoga a week…i have felt a reduction in my sinus attacks, my lower back which used to feel stiff has now stopped declaring its existence.

6. Party organizer…I would love to throw interesting thematic parties and be the bestest hostest in this part of the Suez and that too…u know the ones with the right napkins and food and decor to suit the mood types.

Wow 3 out of the 6 are related to fitness…Yay me,but i guess it point 1 is what will eventually do me in

Sob…

Thanks CR…this was fun…i might actually decide to let my brain stop gathering moss

Happiness is

When the world (read work) acknowledges the importance of your existence and acknowledges the fact that you are one person with two hands for typing follow up mails, 1 chotu brain for processing, 1 mouth for calls.

When your laptop behaves like a 21st century processor instead of making you consider the abacus for vlookup’s instead of the mighty slow (calculating cells – 5%) excel.

When u have a greater workout and dont feel like killing the trainer or committing suicide by jumping out of the nearest window

When u realize you have forgotten your umbrella and the light rain feels great after a workout.

When u can’t get an auto and have the energy to work home in the rain with sensible rainproof shoes and a protected laptop. P.s. it helps if your house is close by

Getting thoroughly drenched by the rain that is not so light anymore and not having a single car splash water on you despite millions of puddles all around. This has to be a miracle!

No nagging mother/husband forcing you to change your wet clothes. Sitting in them and waiting for them to dry on their own.

A hot cup of soup

Being entertained despite the Tall One ditching the you for the evening to visit friends…He didn’t even get one call or sms asking about his existence. This is more like the cool old Nut Thank u fellow bloggers for the entertainment 0 said ABBA style “Thank u for the music”

Learning how to change the header in a blog…it is a big thing for non techies okkkkkk

Discovering a neighbour and making plans to meet in the future (see comments section)…also the thought of walking around a frequently frequented mall wondering which one is your friend blogger and asking random strangers “are u consultant nehuu from iim?”

And its then u know that it is the small things that make life good!

And then there are F*^&ed up days like yesterday when work is a bitch, people think u are actually 2 different people and have all the “bandwidth” to work on everything. When your workout session inspires thoughts of suicide/murder, when ur legs refuse to budge after the session, when u dont have time to open internet explorer forget reading/commenting on a single blog. POsting what’ that

And then u realize that it is still Freaking Monday! Baahh

The universe has a way of evening it out
