"Here I am sitting in office…and it just occurred to me...
How it changed from a maverick college life to a strict professional life…..and to think that we used to occasionally at least feel rebellious about the "discipline" required to attend classes, study for exams etc etc...
How tiny pocket money changed to relatively huge monthly paychecks
but then why it never gives me the same level of contentment….
How a few local pairs of jeans and colourful tees changed to a new branded wardrobe
but then why there is less excitement in wearing them...
How a single plate of samosas (usually fought over by more people than the number of samosas!), changed to a full pizza or burger at any given time
But then why there is less hunger…..
How a bike always in reserve fuel changed to a car always in full
but then why there are less places I want to or have time to go to…
How a small, local coffee shop changed to the myriad Cafe Coffee Days/Baristas/5-Star Coffee shops
but then why it feels like I have to "make" time to "do" coffee…..
How a limited prepaid card changed to a paid-for-by-company-postpaid package
but then why there are fewer calls that I WANT to make...
How general class train trips changed to flights
But then why there are less vacations for enjoyment….
How an old assembled desktop changed to a new, branded laptop
but then why there is less time and even less inclination to switch it on, other than for work……….
How a small bunch of friends changed to a much bigger number of office mates
but then why after 6 o'clock it always feels like we're getting late….
Life just changed one day it seems....and bigger somehow didn't add up to better. Ironic."
