Experience Classes

Standard

Again, I have realized how wrong the majority view or perception can be.

I believe there are three ‘experience people’ classes;

Firstly, there is the high school type- the people who emphasize and boast about the legendary stories about the ‘crazy shit’ they did when in high school. How they wish they could relive those moments and escape this tormenting worklife.

Second, there is the university type – the people who talk about their ‘conquests’ and celebrate their laziness I.e. never waking up in the morning and never going for lectures. The lack of responsibilities is envied and even craved for.

Third, there is the me type or present work type – I loved high school and I loved university. They were great experiences during those stages in my life. But, now we must realize that this stage is different, the benefits and disadvantages are different. Maybe you can’t sleep till the sunsets and wait all night chit chatting but life provides its benefits in a different form i.e. financial independence and helping the society.

Its nice to know that its not about you. High school and university experiences were all about. YOUR conquests YOUR desires YOUR achievements. But work life is harder because you realize that the next stage in this life becomes more than just about you. Helping the world while trying to make a living is hard. But, the rewards are like nothing you could have ever imagined.

On a side note, got my first criminal acquittal. When you see the accused’s reaction after the words ‘not guilty’ is given, it helps to remind me why I do what I do.

All out for love

Standard

You can’t imagine how other people can sacrifice time, money, career etc. in the pursuit of love and relationships. Its not logical, reasonable and against all statistical odds. That person will not only lose everything he/she puts in but will be left emotionally scarred. Only becoming more reluctant to make those sacrifices again. But contrary to this reasonable assumption, they try again and again. Till they either find THAT love/relationship or become fanatical cynics.

But I guess, its one of those things that a third party observer can ever understand. Only when you embark on that illogical, irrational and unreasonable journey can you fully appreciate why we do it.

For me, its faith. Like we have faith that there is a god that loves you unconditionally and who will accept you for all your faults, there is someone out there who will accept YOU with no conditions attached. As we all know having faith is hard with no guarantee that you are right but just that possibility no matter how remote it may be makes the journey worthwhile.

The Pupil Master

The world is strange. They say that you get only one father and one mother. That is true only if we are talking about biological parents. But, how useful are biological parents. With divorce, single parenthood and remarriage becoming a social acceptable norm we are slowly exposed to multiple parents. And like perfect competition benefit the consumers more than a monopoly we realize that honestly some parental figures are just better than others.
