What I’m (Not) Doing

What am I doing? Rather, what am I not doing? Because, I’m doing nothing really. At least nothing productive, in the sense that’s society-sanctioned. Because, really, I’m doing stuff, not just the stuff that I should be doing 24/7. Like sleep? Well, not entirely. I wake up, too. Read. Watch videos. TV. Play my guitar. Or try to. Write some. Sketch. Draw. Stare at a blank canvass which remains blank for more than a year now. Think. Meander. Sing. Surf the Net. Email. Go out with friends. Sometimes. Play badminton. A few times. Cook. Attend to stuff. Walk. Discover stuff. Places. Gripe. Bum. For cash. Food. Stuff. Sensible stuff. Sure. There’s no money in it. For the most part, I’m mostly boring myself to death. Which is just around the corner. Probably why I’m getting my ass out there. Somewhere. Someday.

Okay. ‘Nuff of the stoner-talk.

4. 15 days or so later, I got the results. Apparently, I did it. Wohoo!
5. My name and face, along with the other new architects from my school, appeared in the local newspaper. So now everyone knows. And asking for a party. Ugh! (But oath-taking is still in 25th of March, so…)
6. I’m a fresh Architect and I’m penniless. I couldn’t even renew my website. Now it’s gone forever. And the thing is, I think, I’m glad. Huge chips off my shoulder.
7. I’ll be going away soon.
