it surprises me when i look at the things that have changed over such a short period of time..
i'm in a whole new place.. a new set of "friends".. a new objective.. leading a totally different life here...
just a coupla months back i was busy studying and fooling around at NUS.. where thinking about the future meant planning a thanni party or deciding which canteen to go to for lunch and at most it meant preparing for the next exam.. and i liked things that way.. a lot..
right now.. i work! (i 'drive' to work, but that doesnt negate the fact that i have to work), i program, read blogs and books on technology and business, attend seminars, network (or atleast try to), organize mixers, write business plans, etc.. and yea i have a page long to-do list at any point of time..
its not just the things i do.. but the way i think that has changed.. the place that joe satriani or jimmy page used to occupy in my mind is now slowly getting filled up with names like larry page, farzad naimi and don valentine.. the 'cool' stuff that i gossip about is not the next metallica album.. but the next high-tech, patent pending, paradigm shifting technology based startup.. zzzzz
and the funny part is i'm not really sure if all this is for the better.. there are a lot of things i am losing out on.. the NUS life that I did actually love (believe me when i say that!).. my 'real' friends back at college.. my guitar (i haven't played one for months now.. ).. and most importantly.. that amazing sense of piece of mind that accompanies ignorance.. yes, the bliss of ignorance.. i miss it.
anyways, here i am.. and there's nothing i can do but make the best of it.. i'm working on it.. its hard.. but i know for sure that every minute of this life out here is gonna be beneficial to me in the long run.. as an entrepreneur or otherwise.. the experience is definitely worth it..
