Tomorrow (18 June) is my birthday, so there is another 1hr 15mins before it starts. So, a happy advanced B’day to me!
Like most people.. hehe.. I have an Official and Unofficial B’day. I had changed my B’day date on paper to 18th July (And no.. not for the sake of applying a premature Driving License. I didn’t know how to drive a car till I was 20). The reason is a long story which is best left unsaid.
SO, in a way, I guess I’m lucky cos’ I can celebrate my UNOFFICIAL B’day with close friends, and enjoy the OFFICIAL B’day with my colleagues at work. Here I am , enjoying the strike of midnight with special ones, and I will probably be doing the same next month with colleagues. I guess the real one matters.
SO, Its been a lotta years since I had been born, and a lotta experiences and lessons to learn. I guess I’m still doing fine, on the wrong side of twenty-five!! In fact, like they said, thirty is the new twenty!!
Lemme Explain…. Thirty is the new twenty: Cos’ at twenty, we were still either studying or looking for a job, and we were broke most of the time. Now, we are turning thirty and we are in control of our lives. We know what we want to be, and what we can achieve out of life. Our dreams at this point are more realisable!! Not like the PILOT I wanted to be when I was a kid, cos’ that really BOMBED!!
I had dreamt to join NDA, join the AirForce and be a pilot. I cleared the written twice, but got rejected in the SSB (Service Selection Board, for the uninitiated).. You guessed it!!.. twice!!.. so, I kinda gave up and took up Computers. Sucks right??! Tell me about it, I get the chills whenever I see a Sukhoi take a pass over Pune city, it doesn’t help when they have an air base close to the city, one of the few with a Sukhoi Squadron!!
Anyways, life is never as one imagines it to be. Nothing ever goes as planned. I had planned, If I had joined the AirForce, to take premature retirement and get a job as a Commercial Pilot, who, btw, get paid in plenty!! If you know what I mean!!
Whatever…. blah blah blah!!… See you at the next post!! Live has its own way of giving it to you!! If you know what I mean!! 😀
