Fighting to find mindspace

Not that I do not have time, but not the way I need it to blog. I call it mindspace. Will hit the 'purple patch' of blogging soon though.

I was telling someone the other day that I can sense that I am turning into a lunatic with each day passing. More freaky, more weird than ever before! I find myself laughing more these days, and that's weird because I do not need reasons to laugh. Increasingly, I care less about what I am wearing to where. Carrying myself in a very casual way to lectures. Not really taking care of the 'niceties' and the 'formalities'. Being more volatile and 'unstructured' in the way I am living overall. Something that my parents keep complaining about. In their words, it is not 'disciplined'.

Also, I like doing things that most people believe are 'what-the-fu**' kinds. And I do not really like doing the 'in-things'. I sleep through (literally) the box-office hits in most cases and am excited about a movie that has 11 people watching it on the first day of its release.

I have stopped scolding the batches and keep mocking myself. Was actually dancing in a batch the other day! When was the last time I lost my cool? Can’t remember. And that’s not me. Can’t be. But yet that’s how it is.

I am less nervous about a lot of things. Leave it to the moment in most cases, including my presentations. Doing it more ‘extempore’ than before. The ever-excited wreck I was, am being more laid back these days. Less ‘turned on’ by things that otherwise would have excited me. Talking a lot lesser than before. Discussing a lot lesser than before. Getting out of home a lot lesser than before.

If not anything else, all the above crap might make you believe that I am starting to lose it. If still not convinced, see it to believe it!

Sir,
i used to believe that ur always calm cool and composed, the perfect balance of every good thing.
But u seem to be just like me.....

May be u r not "Go with the flow" kind of people thats why people think "U" r different.
What ever may be the case "We all want our always enthusiastic and zealeous harish sir back"

Yep, would like to see it, if you ever come to this side of civilization.

Well, this is not about you 'loosing it', i think you are just going through a rebellious non-comformist phase...Happens to many people...But can bet on that,Nkayites will soon see the prim & proper Harish Sir again.

Not following the "not so taken" or the socio-conventional paths in life..often make us feel this way. you should just do what your heart desires..and not worry abt being different...or weird.
We all have a little bit of weirdness in us..but our inhibitions keep us at bay..

cheers..
