Ok, so today was a rather dull day. College was boring. There were no surprises there apart from a session on studying in abroad which my gang and I were more than happy to skip and have a wonderful discussion on Dormammu and Thanos in the cafeteria.
I felt like Greg House today. I had seen House take Vicodin every now and then to help him keep up with the pain in his bloody leg. I have been suffering from pain myself for a few days now. There has been an abnormality in my left molar and that particular tooth aches as if it was hit by a bloody bullet. So to suppress the pain until my next appointment with my trusted dentist, I am taking 2-3 pills 3 times a day. It’s funny how a very little amount of pain in some corner of the body manages to rattle the whole system. It was almost as if the pain radiating from my tooth was able to spread throughout my body and somehow managed to weaken it. I, at times, found myself craving for the pills just to escape from the pain. I was never more looking forward to going to my dentist than I am now. True that you often find your destiny on the very path you chose to avoid it.
In the past few days, I have discovered what pain does to us however small and however insignificant. It was just a little toothache but it was enough to mess with my focus and concentration in class. I almost made a clown out of myself in class yesterday by giving a rather stupid answer to a trivial question because of the sole reason that I wasn’t able to concentrate. Something which would have been a rare sight otherwise.
Lately, I have been thinking of a new project, the kind of which I had never worked on before and I was looking all around for Inspiration. I am not going to write about the project just yet. I remembered that I was yet to start the 2nd season of Peaky Blinders and as I said in my previous post, I was avoiding all sorts of distractions as much as I could. But today, as I was writing my assignments, I caved in and started the 1st episode of season 2. I don’t like to think of it as I gave in to my desires and went off track. 2 months earlier, I would have finished half a season in one night. But now, as I have learnt the importance of a good night’s sleep, I shut down Netflix after an episode so yay me!
I have begun to admire Cillian Murphy’s acting on another level. His previous works I had watched showed him in a very supporting role. But in Blinders, he is the one at the helm. He literally brings the character of Tommy Shelby to life. Devil deserted Earth and left Tommy Shelby behind to carry out his deeds haha. Seriously though, incredible acting from Murphy.
Surprisingly for me, I found myself wanting to bunk class for the very first time this semester. This mindset of my attending every other class without bunking a single one has been the same from the past few semesters as well but this time I had convinced myself that I would stick to the promises I make to myself. Maybe because of the pain, or maybe not, I was about to give up and go home but things worked out well and I attended all the classes.
Another day, another post. I heard an argument stating that blogging is waste of time if it isn’t yielding any income. This should have made perfect sense to me as I always look for the ‘what do I get in return’ factor in everything I do. It was good to get to hear the story from a different vantage point. Nevertheless, blogging is something out of which I don’t expect anything. Blogging to me is breathing existence to my thoughts and putting it out of my system. For this once, no quid pro quo.
Until next time.
God bless you.
