First Day being Unemployed

Ok so tonight I am in a very good mood. The weather is a bit chilly, just about the right temperature where you don’t wanna roam around in your boxers and would rather get cosy in your PJs. I’ve just finished watching this amazing animated movie, CARS (2006). Yes I know its a bit old, been meaning to watch it but tonight I actually did that and boy! had a great time. These days I’ve been on a crazy Walt Disney frenzy. Watching cartoons and animated films from the past, revisiting my childhood days. But that is another blog post. Back to the issue of my good mood…

So sitting on my bed with the laptop, A Sate of Trance episode number er…443 yes playing in the back ground and I am really at ease.

Part of the reason I started blogging is to understand what goes around me. It is like by talking or in my case writing about what happens around you make things come to better perspective. So, perhaps by talking about what happened throughout the day I will shed some light on this good feeling that I’m having right now.

I woke up at 8:30am, showered and had to skip breakfast because I had an appointment with a professor at my university for 9:00am. It takes about 20 minutes for me to dress up and 40 minutes by car in medium traffic to reach university from my home so no way was I going to be on time. I don’t know why I missed my precious protein filled breakfast knowing I wasn’t going to make it on time anyway but I guess it eased my conscience.

Anyway at the university I did miss the dam appointment but as it turned out the good professor took some time out to see me and I got what I wanted. Awesome and I was pretty close to the schedule I had planned out the night before.

12:30pm back at home. Had a very late breakfast, deli delied with mom and got ready to visit my office. Yes ‘visit’. When you have resigned officially, you ‘VISIT YOUR WORK’ as oppose to ‘GOING TO WORK’. So by 3pm I was in my office or should I say ex-office. Winded up a meeting and some last minute tasks. The meeting didn’t go as well as I had planned, at least for my vendor who got grilled and will probably hold a grudge with the company from now on but hey, not my problem ha ha no sir. Not any more.

So I left work at 6:00pm picked up my sister from her friends place near Clifton and came back home had an OK lunch. The emphasis is on my mom’s cooking. Its .. well lets just say she can cook really well if she wants. But today wasn’t her best day. In any case no complains the food was healthy and put me in a stupor for an hour. When I woke up at 9:00pm the world was felt a bit fuzzy so I took a walk on the roof, enjoyed the chilliness of the night getting chillier by the minute over a cigarette and called in a friend.

After he left I had a late dinner and watched the movie CARS which I mentioned earlier. And now it is 2:00 am almost time to sleep again and I am in a nice content stated of mind. The day was hectic, I was all over Karachi but at the end everything got done. Its like when you plan out the to-do list for the day in your head and everything is time dependent and when it all falls right into place just like you wanted it feels like a mindgasm. The feeling is good I am sure you guys know what I mean. At least those of you who are working.

…Not bad for a FIRST DAY BEING UNEMPLOYED šŸ™‚ oh and did I mention I use to hate my job? Change. Change is the lesson of the day here people. Think about it when you have time. It won the hearts of millions of Americans when Obama was campaigning and started a revolution in North Africa and the Middle East.

I am apprehensive about tomorrow but at the same time I am really hopeful. I didn’t knew the name of this 90’s house number, it reminds me of all our junior high school Eid Milan Parties, Basants, Melas, Dholkies and what not. A week back heard it over FM 89 and valha. Tonight we party!
