Arbitary Obsessionist's Blog : Ambition is redundant. In life, mission is everything.

Times change really fast. There was a time when then was then AND here I am in a time when now is now.




Here are a few of random “Then & Now” observations about me…


THEN – “What, its just 10 am, how can I wake up.”

NOW – “OMG, I am getting so late, its already 7:30 in the morning.”


THEN – “How can I eat the same thing for two days in a row, make something new”

NOW – “Just bring in whatever you have to eat, so what if I ate the same thing yesterday also”


THEN – “Hey man, why are you taking a bath today; nobody is coming to smell you!!”

NOW – “Ah its so hot after the office, lemme take a shower.”


THEN – “Man, when will we get out of our college life? It would be nice to earn some money”

NOW – “Those golden college days. I should take up some higher studies”


and I know, this will go on and on and on….


A Note : Thank you so much Neha for suggesting the title of the post. Couldn’t have thought of a better one 🙂

  12. Grass is always greener on the other side. Imagine getting retired and old and you will for your current days then 😉 Life,duh!

  13. Agreed that grass on the other side is greener. But after retiring, we all will be having (most probably) a lot of constraints due to age.
    But still…you are right. 😉

  14. Life makes you change!

    THEN – “Man, when will we get out of our college life? It would be nice to earn some money”

    NOW – “Those golden college days. I should take up some higher studies”
