Catcher in the Rye

Have you ever been in a state of purposelessness. Well I have been. In fact at this very moment when I am writing this post, I am. The aims are well within the sight. But I don't have any motivation to go for them. These days I dont have any zest left for reading, writing or studying. I am facing each day as it comes, without any plan or routine. I am testing the limits of procrastination. I am trying to avoid my work and in the process I am doing things randomly. Sometimes I am reading a novel, some other time I am lying on my bed listening to my favourite playlist and some other time I am watching some random sitcom. May be its the summer that is causing this. Or may be this is me. Wouldn't it have been wonderful if things remain the way they are. Why do they have to change? Why do we have to harbour an ambition? Why do one has to become an engineer or a doctor or a banker? May be because otherwise life would be dull and boring. May be that is where the real fun lies. But I am not getting that fun. If given an option, I would just like to be a catcher in the rye.

hmm...
well... I can finally mark the Grammatical mistakes, which you usually make, and I always leave them for later. :P

And this time I have purposely read the article with the proof reading software of my eyes.

Read it again, and correct them.there are some 2 or 3 of them.

PS: The article's good.
'I am testing the limits of procrastination.'
SO true.
And I too, am doing the same thing. :)

If this is what you are experiencing, my advice would be to leave every thought of studying/working aside and enjoy. I don't think you'll last for more than a week.

P.S.: Enjoyment can also be done by playing AOE. :)
