Seven year itch

A lil drunk. Again. Seven years gone since i started work. Dint notice the date when it passed. (Aug 16th). Realized it a lil later. Not that it matters. Making serious plans to take a break. Atleast for 3 to 6 months. From Jan or April next year. Will go to Uttarkashi, Varanasi, some parts of NE India and a few sanctuaries i want to go to. Want to do a few things before i hit 30. Dont trust my back to be good enuf to do the things i want to do beyond a certain age. The sooner i do those stuff, the better. If i dont get such a long vacation i'll quit.
 
Drank with Binu at good old Casablanca. Booze trips with him have reduced after his marriage. He keeps telling me good things about being married and eggs me on to do something about my singularity. I might grow to become this 40 year old morose, irritable, single guy (well, i dont think life wud come to that, but the 'single' part might come true). But i cant bring myself to seek company in unnatural ways just to avoid regrets i might have in a hypothetical future. For now it is just work, books, booze and the faithful beach in my backyard.

4 years up since i started working and i already feel like quitting..

i guess annual breaks are a good way of ensuring sanity as are extended periods of non-work once in four years..

but like you said the single 20 somethings can think about life this way.. what happens once there are school and summer camp fees to be paid.. * sigh *

best of luck with the vacation and with natural ways of finding somebody perfect for you.

30 is just a number and you dont have to be 40 to be morose, irritable and single!

Enjoy what you do now without worrying about what you cannot do in the future!

But on the other hand, I am with you on not trusting your bones not to break - I KNOW!!!

Quit?!!! Tell me that was just the alcohol...

3 to 6 mnths vacation sounds good. You should visit Orissa, if possible. I think you'll like it.

smi - thanks...

sou - "what happens once there are school and summer camp fees to be paid.. * sigh *"
I safely assume that those, like road accidents, are things that happen to other people, not me:)..

anonymous #1 - bad things set in with time...be it a job or a relationship or anything or a lack of anything...u're more likely to hit it at 40 than say 20...

anonymous #2 - "Quit?!!! Tell me that was just the alcohol..."
No, not just alcohol..am sober now..(Ofcourse the job and the money are important, but the industry is good and i can restart where i left when i want to)..

One life, is it not much more simpler if we jus live it doing whtevr u want, howevr u liked doing it, be it to sleep, smoke, drink or for tht matter jus get whacky n spend days together in some weird place even with an animal if its interesting for u!
Making stuff complicated for ur own gd self is wht humans have achieved in this planet and the most primitive craziness being the term Marriage! Havin a company is a fair deal but why give it a pressure of commitment???-this is somethin I can never give a gd reason be it logical, analytical or theoritical!!
