Making the Right Choice

Right now, I'm stuck in this phase, where everything is moving too fast, or suddenly things move way too slowly. A lot is gonna change in the coming months, and I should be welcoming the change. I remember, I took this genuine aptitude test sorta thing long back, and I found out that I have a phobia of moving forward. Now, it's not exactly the awesomest phobia, I prefer being scared of dogs and escalators. I like meeting new people , trying out new things, having changes in my life, but I'm actually actually scared I won't be happy where I go. If I have a job and I don't like it and I can't come out of it, being the person that I am, I'm just not gonna survive in such an environment!


I always thought that whatever I do in my life, will be what I WANT to do. I thought my first job will be what I deserve, and what I like, and what I want to do forever. But, a lot of my friends are doing jobs just for the heck of it, or just to waste one year till they go for their higher studies. I dunno how they can survive doing something they don't like!

I see myself doing the same thing now. I dunno why, but I feel my ego is getting a beating somewhere if I do a job which I'm not enjoying. I mean I haven't got a job yet, but now I know it's gonna be something which won't be my first preference.

Maybe it's peer pressure, or what, I dunno, but everyone I know who is going to graduate this year is stressed and behaving like a total maniac. So bear with me, since you have also been through the same phase before, or you are gonna go through the same phase soon.

Whoever said that after 12th, your life is set and college is only gonna be fun and party, is gonna get a whack from Chulbul Pandey. Oyeeeeeeeeeeee Dabbang!! Awesome or what?!?! I'm high on Salman all over again!!! But I still miss the cute romantic Sallu in Maine Pyaar Kiya and Hum Aapke Hai Kaun. Although, this hawt police inspector was a welcome change! Special mention to Sonu Sood. Mmmmmmm :D
And listen to 2012 by Jay Sean!! Awesome lyrics, good music, good Jay Sean, fun fun fun !!!

A small favour from you guys. Please vote for this film. It requires logging in, so please don't be lazy, it's for a noble cause! You can do your good deed for today!! =D

nobody likes their job..

I'll try 2 be truthful said...

I know its very easy to say and extremely hard to do, but even then "If you don't feel like doing something,don't do it",oh madsy, at the risk of sounding preachy i'd add an undernote' life's long and you gotta keep running it' :)

anyway 12th wala dialogue jisne mara hai na, usko mere taraf se bhi one tight kick.

I like this post, it doesn't come across as the ranting of an about to graduate girl, rather seems quite sensible.


ab Dabangg style mein "Madhuri jee issmilee"

Peer pressure does get you into wrong decisions...whenever you feel that way...go home, lock yourself in your room and write what you thought you'd be after 12th, what has always been THE goal of your life...it'll help..

You feel the same uh? I thought its just me... Final year law school can be tough on you..what with finding the job you like and grueling interviews..sigh..

I remember I must have given at least 50 interviews to get a job that I have interest in :)
Try your full efforts to get a job in the field you like..

No pedagogy from me... I am just in the same boat :-ss and gtalk gawah hai how many rants we've heard ek doosre ke :P

Ye genuine apti test fb waala toh nahi tha na? kyunki fb waale exist only to soothe egos >:P

All the best in whatever you try!

Dabang dekhni hai yaar...

kya yaar two months more of gruelling studies :(

And you are scaring me yaar, in CA you have to be an intern for 3 years before becoming one.

Atleast you want to be a lawyer. Still you are finding it hard.

I dont even want to be a CA :P
