After dwelling in an atmosphere bustling with the post-lunch enthusiasm seen in Goa for the past one week, this Saturday morning, I was thinking about the really important things changing the future of my nation’s youth. Like the kolaveri which has gone viral or the slapfest on sugar daddy or the release of Breaking Dawn! Instead, I decided to give my valued attention to an even more pressing situation at hand. Blame it on the bruise caused to my brain after I heard the touching investment banker-to-escorts storyline of Desi Boyz, I was ruminating over the recent hullabaloo in my class caused by a friend adorably smitten by a certain doe-eyed err.. professor teaching us!
Teacher crushes are as common as Sachin getting out in 90s! Kindergarten boys know all about falling in love with their teachers. It’s funny how most young boys fall for matured women and then as grown-ups, they swoon for girls who can’t think to save their lives like Kristen Stewart in twilight! Luckily for me, I learnt early in life that the world is a tough place to live in since you can’t keep elephants as pets. Every girl has a phase in her school life when her entire group sincerely believes that guys are stupid and dating them is impossible while they all secretly swoon over the craziest bad boys in class. As teenagers, they have crushes on their young teachers who are fresh IIT graduates and teach them Physics in coaching classes. Okay, maybe not all of you. But I believe every girl has had a crush on her physics professor at some point in her life. (Quick tip from my side to all the boys trying to impress the fairer sex. Be excellent in Physics. You have no idea how many girls have a crush on Sheldon!)
As I go along this part of my life where I am trying to balance happiness and character with ambitions and competition, I am going to start writing about the things I am thankful for. It’s something I was inspired from another blogger friend. You need not necessarily pray to someone above, you just need to be aware of your blessings and be thankful for them. Even if you think you deserved whatever you got in life, I think you should be thankful for whatever makes you think you deserved it. So, here goes my first list

Off late there has been too much negativity in my life. From too many quarters. The part where I am so uncertain about what I want to do. The part where I am not working hard enough to do what is expected of me. The part where I am wasting too much time. And I thought what exactly is going wrong. Because I am NOT this person I am trying so hard to be. I am not the person who counts the number of hours spent on a nice meal with friends. I don’t feel guilty after sleeping and waking up feeling fresh. I have never met people I ‘should’ be meeting trying to strike a good, impressive conversation. I have never gone for days without listening to music or reading a book. I have never missed home so hard.
My only aim to write this post is to remind myself what is to become of me if I continued the same way. Yes, I am afraid of the implications. As much as I enjoy the entire growing up phase at the end of which I am supposed to be emerging as a professional trying to solve some problem in the world, I am afraid I am not getting approved by myself.
