me, thinking out loud…

Posts tagged ‘sleep’


Exam time now. Sleep time cut-down! [already compensated for, during the whole semester! :D] Getting up quite early during these days…. [To cram in something at the last minute.. :P]

But all that kept aside, I feel great to be waking up early in the morning. Watching the Sun rise.. is a great feeling. The calm of the dawn, the chirping of the birds n the cool breeze.. Its absolutely amazing — awe inspiring. Its a great experience. A rare one for me,though.. :(
For the last four semesters, I have been a part of the owl-tribe… staying awake till late in the night and doing all sorts of stuff… [other than study – during the non-exam time…] Its great fun staying awake very late in the night… having fun with friends… B’day parties, Musical sessions in Ringo’s room, Movies, Carrom-Nights, all-night Chats(online n offline..) and lots of other stuff.

But all this can be done during the day can’t it[The fun of doing it in the night is totally different though..]?? If I enjoy the morning times so much, shouldn’t I be enjoying it more often? If its such a great feeling.. to be waking up in the morning.. should I trade it with all the fun I have, late in the night?? Is it worth it? Like Voodoo believes, should I put in efforts to enjoy the sunrise each day??
Is it time.. that I try out the cliche… “Early to Bed, Early to Rise…” [EBER — that’s what UC calls it… and hence the title… :P]

Update: If for Fear, people are able to cut-down so much on their sleep, and work so hard, I wonder how much is possible for *LOVE*. I think this is the thing that drives all the great achievers… the Scientists.. the Hackers.. the Artists.. the Engineers… the Writers.. the Doctors.. and a lot of others…
I need to find something, that I would Love to work on.


Planning… to save a Sem!!??

We are less than a week away from our supposedly dreaded ‘test-1’… n i have no clue even about what the syllabus is, in each course… There’s ‘Theory of Relativity‘, of which i’m able to make no head or tail.. then there’s ‘Electrical Sciences’, which totally “transformed” my plans for this sem… then…SPM.. muP.. POM… MT.. C&S………
There are loads and loads of other stuff too…
Relativity… Emacs…. C++… Python… Table Tennis… learning a bit of Music… picking up practical electronic skills… reading a few books…(quite a few actually..).. and so on…. [not to forget.. attending classes… doing a bit of course related work…]. The list seems only to be growing everyday…
There’s nothing that I’ve crossed out yet.. there’s not one thing that’s done to perfection…[with a third of the sem already through!!] {I already get the feeling.. its “Another sem down the drain”}
But didn’t I begin this sem with plans to “rock” it?? Wasn’t I supposed to attend all the classes that I possible can?? What’s it that I’ve been doing for the past 5-6 weeks?
I don’t know!! I really can’t pinpoint what’s been achieved in the past one month or so… [other than of course quite a considerable amount of sleep…….]

Why are things so horribly out of place?? What’s to be done.. to get on track asap.. I wonder… What should my priorities be? Why am I being overwhelmed by the things I got to do?
I realise this time of my life is as precious as any other… (probably more…) and i need to make the most of it…. but what is that “most”?? [It’s definitely not sleep!]

I wish to put together,
all my time, energy and matter
to do a job, little
that will ob’ly be infinitesimal
It wouldn’t make me a hero
but shouldn’t amount to zero…

to me, something tangible
definitely seems possible
because nothing is impossible
if there is the quantum of struggle…

but it must come
before I get back home
needn’t create an uproar
but before the end of semsester four

[Don’t mistake this for a poem… for it is not!! Its just some scribbling of mine.. which will keep me alive if at the end of this sem… there’s nothing other than this.. which is tangible… something concrete.. something “see”able]

Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, “Where have I gone wrong?”
Then a voice inside says to me, “This is going to take more than one night.”
Charles M. Schulz

Little Things.
Little drops of water,
Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean
And the pleasant land.
Thus the little minutes,
Humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages
Of eternity.
Ebenezer Cobham Brewer.
