Wow! It seems almost everyone's having shitty times at their homes, eh? I ain't too sure if this post of mine is supposed to be a self-ego bashing write-up or should it rather concentrate towards reaching out to my buddies and make them realize that their lives couldn't be any more sordid than mine. Well, anyway, here I come out in the open with my take on life and how I'm handling the issues on my end.
Everyone of you is aware of my state of things in college, aren't you? Yes, it's true that I finally managed to make quite a good friends from my current batch. Yet, the fact remains that I miss the top floorers a helluva lot! Having Gandhi to preach to, Dino to smirk at my actions, Karma to play WarCraft with, Nandu to haggle for his laptop and net connection, hankering Mutthu for fags and playing Mortal Kombat with Samik are just a few things that make me hate to go back to that hostel ever again. I dunno if any of you would ever understand how it might feel, to be in that floor and find not a single one of you having a gala time!
But then again, this is life, they say! Yes, shit things do happen in our lives. So what? You just gotta stand up and take notice of the potential you have within yourself and follow where your heart wishes you to follow. Lemme try to make you understand my point of view taking examples out of my own life!
I know, a lot of you have been wondering about what I am up to, lately. Well, you do know about my passion for blogging and one fine day, I actually decided to take it up for a profession. I have been training myself all this while with all the shitty details about blogging, Search Engine Optimisation, Internet Marketing, making connections with people, knowing the right kind of technology, learning to be at the right place at the right time. And now, I happened to lap up a pretty good job in a firm called WATConsult. It is basically a start-up of just 11 people on board, currently. It's basically a blog consultancy firm that advises companies like Rediff, Mahindra, Nokia, HSBC, Frito-Lay and Force India on the upcoming Web 2.0 technologies.
Now, who'd have ever thought, even in his wildest dreams, that I could end up with such an offer, what with my backlogs in college and endless supplementary papers? Yet, here I am, trying to make my mark, to the best I can. I have already started writing for WATBlog and am pretty sure I shall be able to give them pretty useful inputs as an employee.
And you know something more? Life could've been much easier had I just followed everyone of your foot steps and gotten a job on campus itself. But, I knew what I wanted. I knew that I'd faced enough hardships in my life and a little more shall never hurt my guts. That's the reason why I'd originally decided to go solo and set up a firm of my own. Now, doncha think that I've gone all weak hearted and have backed out. Rather, I got more intelligent. I wanna work in this certain company and acquire the required skill sets. I want to watch closely how a start-up works. I want to know how to run a company and what are the hardships one normally faces. I wish to watch the market first hand. And here's another pointer for you. The business model that I'd thought of, I just happened to stumble onto a similar business about 2 months back, a business from USA. That certain company was following the exact model that I'd thought of. But you know what spurred the fire into my ass. A little notification at the top of their web site that said, "Patent Pending!"
Well, despite everything, here I am, fighting chicken pox at home and writing this little post just to cheer up you guys and make you look deep within you. Damn the environment, damn the surroundings. If you don't find them conducive enough for your way of life, keep the guts to change them according to your whims! Get a life, dudes!!
