Being a student, in pretty demanding program almost all my time (when I’m not wasting time) is spent doing something school related. Most of my time is at school or at home working on school work. I hang out with other students. I eat with them, I go say I’ll play squash and workout with them. We study together work on assignments together. And we end up talking about school all the time (which to be honest while it does get tiresome at times…..its actually fun too. well maybe cause we joke around and act silly a lot too). I go to bed thinking about school and today i woke up thinking about school. Its slowly beginning to dominate my life. Though while it does that I’m also seeming to fight back more and more by procrastinating more and more….the timing of which couldn’t be worse. I’m not too concerned though. Somehow or someway things always get done. But I digress. Or do I? I forget where I was going with this.
Anyhow, to perhaps illustrate my point how school is taking over……or maybe just how much of a geek I am….its 324am and this is the type of conversation I end up having online.
Ahmed: still up?
pb: life sucks
pb: i miss my bed
pb: and my bed misses me too
pb: it is calling me
Ahmed: thats nice
Ahmed: my bed just laughs at me
pb: “pb… I miss you… come… let me embrace you”
Ahmed: and my chair doesn’t like me either. it becomes less and less comfortable the longer i sit in it
Ahmed: and don’t get me started on the tv……its a big love hate relationship there
pb: how come you are on bad terms with so many things?
Ahmed: i think they’re jealous of my laptop
pb: maybe we should start a “we love ahmed campaign”
pb: apply some FIT concept
pb: to alter the thinking of your bed, chair, TV etc.
Ahmed: unfortunately my bed in particular has no trouble avoiding escalation of committment…..unless its of course days where i snooze too much. in which case it highlights the sunk cost of being late
pb: sunk cost!
pb: man you are a NERD!
