Tales of my past month

Apologies for the whole no updating thing. I’ve been busy and also lazy plus I think I had a short quarter-life crisis. The quarter-life crisis will come back full blown in a few days, when I have more time to ponder and then I’ll have more rants and nasty things to say about the system, world and life.

Whats kept me busy?

1. CollegeMogul: I recently started writing for CollegeMogul, a new blog which profiles young entrepreneurs and their startups. Subscribe to us, we have some exciting stuff planned for this summer.

2. Exams: I’m finally giving my courses the attention they require, but its not like its working in my favor anyways.

3. New projects for summer: Every year I make major plans for stuff to do in the holidays, but never really do anything. Hopefully something good comes out of this summer. More about my projects later as they develop.

4. Technology deaddiction: I’m an addict to the internet. I get tensed when I can’t check my mail for a few hours. Apparently accepting that you have a problem is half the solution, so I decided to do the whole thing and strictly cut down on my computer time. I’m impressed by the return to normalcy and social life.

5. Quarter-life crisis: This could be a mid-life crisis too, but I’m just assuming I’ll live to a ripe age of at least 80, since most of family members have had long lives. I think graduating is giving me jitters. I really don’t know what to do next(after college), but I do know what I don’t want to do which makes everything more harder. And its too bad my college life is nearly over and I really haven’t done many things that I wanted to. The past semester was certainly the most inactive, uncreative and unexciting semester of all the previous ones. And while researching for CollegeMogul and talking to entrepreneurs younger than me was more depressing than inspiring. There’s nothing more I want to do than launch a product into the market. Heck I’m ready to lose money, if only to prove to myself that I have the determination. Recently at the CEL farewell, I said the problem with me and keki was that “We fall in love too many times.” Its love mind you, not a crush. We actually spend weeks and weeks debating, but end up doing nothing about it. And for a few times, we’ve thought of brand new products, only to see similar ones launch a few months later. Its painful. Tons of , frankly, stupid and useless products are out there, and here we can’t launch because our products are all exceptional visions, worthy of millions. Execution is the key. So I’ve decided to start something this summer. It’ll probably be idiotic and pointless, but hell I fucking want to stop thinking and just DO for once. Shoot me if I haven’t started something by August. Seriously shoot me in my left hand.
