One of the regrettable changes online is that LiveJournal is dead, or rather dying a slow death, or is taken over by greedy Russian overloads who seem hellbent on running video ads and make the site highly unusable, almost as if they want to remind you that you are unwelcome to even visit the home page. Like you, I too lamented, in public and in private, and in those cafe discussions with friends in which you try to say something intelligent to let them think that you are in touch with online trends. The change also coincided with another regrettable personal shift in my habits - which is simply that I don't get motivated to write, or record the events in my life - something I should do, as I am growing old, and my memory is not what it used to be. I say it's regrettable because - I have been through so much in the last two years, many ups and downs, so many new places and experiences, positive and negative, and I don't wish to forget them. But clearly, there is the lack of motivation, lack of words and skill to describe them. Sometimes, I wish I had an Irish blood in me to be able to write naturally in a contemporary tone, rather than spew out in a texbook-ish antiquated style a desi would do. "I am 53% Irish," I'd declare, and that next thing I know, words will automatically flow - funny, pithy, full of interesting anecdotes. 9 comments - Leave a comment
And yet here I am, with almost no clear sense of what the hell I am doing, or have done, at large. True, I go to work, go through daily motions, finish the tasks on my plate, fill my weekly status reports, just after my boss sends me the last possible reminder about missing it yet another week. But, at large, I can not sum it up.
The situation probably is not gonna change.
Why all this rambling? Well, because I am in Paris, and probably going through an unforgettable experience of my lifetime.
Good or bad?!
I don't know. But, it's something I wish I'd record it.
