So, about a month ago I wrote that I have moved to a big city. I wrote about the freedom that big city offers among other things, below is the link to my previous blog post about the big city.
So, its been more than a month since I moved to the big city within two weeks of that I became really ill. Had fever and flu for a few days then lost my voice(sore throat) and hardly could speak for about 10 days. My eating habits changed, I became cranky and homesick . The thing is big city does offer you freedom but there is a sense of loneliness also that comes with it when I was sick in my post-grad class nobody even bothered to ask about how am I feeling or even tried to generally just talk to me to make me feel better. I am not blaming anyone because I am a new student who is from another city and I guess people here have way more busier life. Everyone here is always in a rush, always busy, I just wish people would slow down a bit, take a deep breath and look at the stars more often, take more late night walks instead of going to the gym all the time but well, that’s just wishful thinking, I guess. But what’s the point of life if its so robotic ? You always wake up at a certain time, you do certain daily tasks and go home and sleep. That’s how life is here.There is no concept of spur of the moment decisions, no spontaneity! I miss my sudden plans with friends, I miss how me and my friends used to arrange surprise birthday parties and just ditch classes sometimes and share a meal and a good laugh at some nearby cafe.
In short, I am kinda bothered by the robotics routine in the big city. I love the freedom that comes with it but what’s the point of it when you end up doing similar routine tasks that everyone else around you is doing everyday.
