Enough!!

Enough is enough, I thought. I've been 'planning' to start my own blog for a long time now, along with a 100 other things. I like to think I'm brilliant at planning; so much so that I don't want to spoil the beauty of it by even contemplating execution. In fact, my to do list, I tell myself, is a planner's ultimate dream, with categories, sub-categories, bullets, multiple fonts, et al. I totally swear by it, but somehow my roomie doesn't seem to appreciate it...

Nitya: Will you please return those books today? They're long due, and I've been telling you since...
Me: No worries! It's on my list. You know I go through it everyday, so chill!
Nitya: Ayyo, Shambhavi!! (bangs her head in frustration)

There is also a category for 'list of things already accomplished'. It serves to remind me that I'm not so bad at actually getting things done, so I can extend those periods of blissful inertia (minus the guilt that's part of the package. After all, how much can one person be expected to do?) A subconscious procrastinator, that's what I am, and now I know why. Maybe I should change the title of this post to "Planners are procrastinators", or something like that.

Wait a sec! It's my first post ever, and I've already started rambling. "Is this some kind of a sign? What is the Universe trying to tell me?" I start to ponder... "Stop rambling and JUST DO IT, will you?", my over-taxed brain cells shout back (before a few of them commit suicide). Nike has always had a tough time convincing me of their generation-defining slogan. Okay... so here I am, wondering what to write in my first post, when suddenly I realize I've already written quite a bit! (of crap, people might say, but naturally, I tend to disagree). Whoa! I pat myself, and head off...
