Who plans days anyway?

I wrote a few things, got confused and used my Red Marker to its bestAnother day’s here
Nothing’s really changed
Ready to go out there
with an overused bright smile
and to take on another new day.
Strategies, bullshit and Creatives
Innovations, Story boards and fuck ups.
Messy work station and tidy excel sheets-
Meaningless rock songs and
low volume ghazals.
discharging batteries and noisy printers
confusing fax and phone calls.
my blue coffee mug.
and red marker.
Today I will meet the blessed deadlines…
By noon I am going to call up a school friend,
and check out other missed calls from last night.
I also should finish the funny novel today-
its been lying untouched since a week
Also the blog ideas…This how my wrok station looks. Cute, isn't it?
the winter clothes…
Today I’ll finish all of this
Today I’ll be myself
will let nothing screw up my mood
Today I promise to be a bitch and gossip around
And laugh secretly on people.
hahahaha..that’s fun!
That jaded dress someone wears to work…
That silly line someone keeps on repeating…
The major secret here that everyone obviously knows…
Wicked. hee hee
Today evening I’ll not crib about
the insistent tug of my work and my land-lady
And I will be deaf to the happy sounds coming from Odyssey
All in all,
Today I’ll be just plain ol’ good ME.
and tonight I’ll cry again.
Tomorrow – What the fuck – can wait.

    Reminds me of a post I’d once written but never got around to posting it. It was like what had life come to, creating designs, chasing orders, shouting at vendors and (omitted stuff) getting frustrated.. is that it??
    Shit yaar, I need something more in my life, and soon I’ll find out what.. πŸ™‚
    Btw, loved the pics!! πŸ˜‰

    Hey there,

    And here I was thinking I was pretty much the only one in the world wondering what the f**k I was doing with my life.

    This post makes me feel old, nostalgic and sad. It brings back too many memories of days lost doing pretty much nothing of use. Grrrrr……
