  9. Life is a journey. Its not a race where the focus is on reaching those milestones . At times you hit a freeway and cover does milestones in no time and at times we r lost for directions. in the end it's the journey that matters. keep Looking for the freeway and until then enjoy the country roads.

    1. Thanks Anon. But what if it takes too long to reach the freeway? Wayy longer than you should?

    1. You shouldn't. Rather we should buck up and start working towards making things better. No?

  12. The people in your sample set can take a hike and we can continue drowning in the big sea of self pity that is around us :P :D

  17. It is hard not to compare your life to others and think that 'where am I going and what am I doing?' Then it may surprise you that others will look up to you and think the same thing. I guess we are all the same :-) Take care

  19. Well I gave up a REALLY pretty penny (the kind that pays big loans off), and got myself well a.. cent? Or a nickel. Whatever. As long as there is a party on the weekend, enough alcohol and whatever else goes with it in your system... we are all set man! :D

    Also, yeah, don't compare. It sucks. There is ALWAYS going to be someone upping you. :)

    1. And that is why I look up to you... giving that up to do something you love is truly beautiful. Kudos.

  20. :)

    When I have days like these, either I drink, smoke or exercise, read, eat healthy, watch a movie and wake up next day thinking ---- fuck all that ---- my tomorrow will be better than yesterday! And I make sure I shop or eat waffles with hot nutella to uplift my mood!

    We never know if materials do bring happiness to those who own them. I have earned enough in past two years, yet I have no idea what I am "actually" after. xD

    Also. Hello. Long time.

  22. I would say 'do not compare'. Sometimes its impossible to do that. But nothing is permanent in life. Neither yours nor theirs. Life can make huuuugggeeee changes in you or in the situation at any time, as I see it. So, be ready! :)
