I’ve recently worked very hard not just at work and school but also at ‘living’ my life. I’ve learnt that if I was given complete freedom from the chains of society and allowed to do what my heart wants, I would choose one of the following:

– Go backpacking through India. It would allow me to learn and talk to people from different belief systems and see my country from the eyes of a stranger.
– Stay on campus with my friends for an entire semester without having to attend classes and appreciate life and friends.

Unfortunately, people are supposed to either be in school (college) or work. To do anything else is referred to as slacking and signifies the presence of laziness. But I don’t want to look back on life when I’m 50 or 60 and have nothing but books, files and meetings to look back on. I want to live my life… is it too much to ask for?
