RIP Mr. Spock

RIP Mr. Spock.

Truth be told, I wasn’t born when Star Trek started and I only ever saw Mr. Spock in re-runs. My Star Trek was “The Next Generation”. It’s hard to believe, in this day and age, that a show that ran for only 3 seasons with 79 episodes had such a profound impact on people. I know that my uncle was a big fan of the show and particularly, Mr. Spock. I suppose most intelligent people relate to him. Today, when I saw that Mr. Spock died, it immediately reminded me of my uncle. My uncle died a long time ago, before he was even 40. I was a teenager when he died, but I still remember all the wonderful things he taught me. I can’t help but think I would have never had such a deep love for science and science-fiction, if it were not for him. He was a highly intelligent person, with interests that no one understood at the time. The two things he was utterly passionate about was Physics and Music. And I treasure every moment he spent expalining both to me. I miss him so very much, and on a day like today, I miss him even more. If not for him, I proabably wouldn’t be as bothered with the death of Mr. Spock… the passing away of a legend, Leonard Nimoy.

Let the blog reading marathon begin….

Over the next couple of days I’m going dive into reading my followers and followees. I am ashamed to admit that I have not read every post written by all of you out there. I will have read a few posts before following and every post after that, but I didn’t take the time to go through your full blog. The same goes for people who have followed me (Thank you!). I’ve followed back, mostly because I felt there has to be a mutual interest for the person to follow me in the first place. But also, haven’t read all the posts. I’m very busy is not an excuse. I should take the time and I will starting today. So don’t be alarmed if you get a like or a comment on a very old post, it’s just me catching up.

22 Feb 2015

Today is just one of those down days. I just don’t feel like I’m in the mood for anything. There’s nothing wrong. Everything is fine, but something’s amiss. There was a change in weather, the temperature dropped and the sun didn’t really come out. I guess the gloomy weather just happened to put a gloom on my mood as well. I have days like these. I’m not depressed, but just days when I want to give up on everything. I feel like my life is a constant struggle. I’m not complaining, the end result of the hard work is positive. There are people in much worse situations than me and with many more hardships. There are people who strive hard every day, yet luck never seems to smile on them. But, everyone has a right wallow in their own misery, and may be not always complain but feel down about it once in a while. I guess, the last few weeks I’ve just been pushing through all my work and responsibilities. I’ve just been taking it all on with a strong will. May be all of it has gotten to me. There comes a point when everyone needs a breather. I think I desperately need some respite from my everyday, otherwise busy life.

TV show junkie

I’ve become a TV show junkie. There I said it!

I’m hooked. Once I put my daughter to bed, I look forward to the moment that I will sit on my couch bed and turn on my laptop. I can’t wait for the next episode.

I can’t help but think that there may be a deeper problem. When I watch TV shows, I lose myself in the show. I can switch off from the problems of my life and enter a world where everything seems alright. It seems to be a form of escape. It may not be normal, but it’s ok. It’s something that gets me through the day and something that’s getting me through this time of my life. I need that escape.

My preferences have evolved as well. Two years ago, I watched shows that ended in cliffhangers. Shows that needed to be watched. I would spend nights up watching one episode after another because I’d want to know what came next. I can’t seem to do that anymore. These days I watch shows where the story ends in one episode, like a crime fighting show. It has to be one of those, where the story ends within the same episode. It doesn’t stop me from watching one episode after another, but at least I can give it a rest.

I’ve been downloading or buying full seasons of old shows. I feel like there are some serials I need to catch up on. I watched House, all 8 seasons, disturbing as it was. Then I watched NCIS. But I watched NCIS backwards starting for the second latest season all the way back. It was fun, not having to stress what will come next after a season ended.

My life has enough drama, I don’t need to introduce more drama into my make believe world.

Do not worry if you have built your castles in the air. They are where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.
