One day at a time.

So there are two ways to go about things. One is where you fret over little issues, over think and obsessively overanalyse:
1) situations that have happened in the past, wondering all the alternate ways they could have ended with. Which cannot be changed ofcourse.
2) situations that are yet to happen. 90% of which may not even occur in the first place.

So in both the situations fretting only leads to wastage of time to say the least.

The second and the more practical way to handle things is to think one day at a time. To deal with present issues. To focus on what’s happening to you right now than wonder what might happen to you in the future.

Because in both the situations the final outcome will remain the same. So it’s probably better to take the more fun way to the destination and enjoy the journey.

One day at a time.

Flappy Bird is going to ruin my life.

THIS GAME IS INSAAANE! I just downloaded this innocent looking game and it’s already taken over my life. I spent the majority of my class and office time today trying to break my own score and curse that uglier-by-every-turn bird.
HIGHSCORE UPDATE: 112

Flappy Bird is going to ruin my life.

I am afraid that one day all these things that happen to me, all these things that I do will become memories. And memories fade. In future when I will be 60 I will have no stories for my grandkids and I will have no inside jokes with my husband because all these pranks, all these good things that happen to me will fall bit by bit from my sieve like brain.
All this is just frightening. Maybe that is the reason I write. Baby steps for a big purpose.

Cellphone and video games are such easy retreats from real life. Like you cannot be a life-introspect-er and an avid video gamer at the same time. You either be an “i dont give a fuck about the world i ll just tweet status updates that will give me the most amount of rts”. Or you can be a “looking at phone only when required because i am busy formulating answers to the mysteries of life, its purpose and other important questions without which my life of course will be meaningless.”
And the worst part about being any of them is that they provide fantastic procrastination opportunities when you really really really have to study for exams.
