I am an undergraduate, twenty something, underworked, overpaid(I swear I am not lying. Neither am I high) individual. I will be graduating in a few months. And I am still completely clueless about the future. I have two really nice and understanding bosses. I am preparing for B school entrance.
I want to move out and hit the road Jack Kerouac style and stay there. I want to do PR and advertising. I want to work in a magazine as a PR person/photographer. I want to be a linguist. I want to do film PR. I want to bungee-jump,sand-bike etc. And forget the fact that I suck at athletics. I dream of opening a hillside cafe that lets you draw on the tablecloth, sing loudly out of tune, play your own favorite music and break a glass if you need to. I want to run my own sand bar that also allows noisy bar fights.
I want to work in Vogue. I want a detective for a neighbour and get embroiled in a most thrilling mystery. I want to dine with Queen Elizabeth. I want Vivienne Westwood and Oscar gowns with Jimmy Choos. I want to attend a page 3 party in ugly red shorts and retro tee that says out loud “Khooni pyaasi aatma! Iss aaine mein apna chehra dekh!” I want to make music( I can’t sing even at gunpoint though), or listen to and help others make it. I want to promote an upcoming musician or a band. I want to go to Antarctica. I want to live in the Shaolin Temple and learn deadly martial arts with unpronounceable names. I want to lie on a green field with raindrops falling all over me and sing out loud without the whole world looking at me in derision. I want an SLR. I want a red truck that never runs out of petrol.
I want to be and do anything that people tell I can’t be and do. I have severe OCD. I live for challenges. They are my obsession, aphrodisiac, drug. I don’t want to stay in a rut.at any fucken cost.
I have a strong feeling that in ten years I will find myself in a Hawaiian country bar watching the hula hula with Yellow Submarine being played in the background, eating Chocos and reading Rabindrarachanabali( Rabindra Tagore Omnibus).
