I have been made to re-assess a few things over the past week, ever since my father asked me if I had a "plan".
I didn't. I still don't. My father just tsk-tsks and gets back to his laptop. Honestly, I don't believe in plans. I don't believe in marking a specified route and then taking it.
I know it sounds extremely stupid, coming from someone who took up Finance as a career, it'd probably sound more convincing had I been some kind of a pothead drummer in a punk rock band.
But that's what people don't get. I didn't get into finance because I had a plan. The whole Oh-my-dad's-CA-let-me-become-CA-my-life-will-be-settled plan.
I took it up after flipping a coin.
Contrary to popular notion, I'm not nuts, I just like a little adrenaline. However, its not flowing at all these days, which is a little unfortunate.
So yesterday, instead of charting a study plan, I wrote a little list. A list of 25 diet crazy (read cheap little thrills) things I intend to make happen before I'm 25. After which I will devise a new list. Some of the items are extremely Anti Ram-Sena but whatever. As I tick each item off the list, I know I what I would have done was super dumb, and some other times are not very ethical/moral and even some other times not very me.
But I won't have regret.
All my life, I've been known to be the good responsible girl, a little too smart and a little too varalakshmi-nombu programmed/thayir saadham to make the dumb mistakes of life. Very true. I've always been responsible, I've always been smart. Which is why I am not revealing the contents of my little list. But I'll tell you one thing. The next time you see me with a smug little grin on my face, you'll know I'm one item lesser.
UPDATE : Apparently even ICAI didn't want me to stop blogging and have postponed the exam to June! No break takings now. I am back. (Cue for Billa/Don music)
