Bad Vibes

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!

So, putting my failed prediction for the future of the Panth behind me (PostSecret's not that big a deal, eh?), I'm pleasantly surprised to be back here once again, writing something, for my grand total of negative three followers to read :D  Given, I started writing three different posts, and this is the third time I'm having a go at this one, I think I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things. Took me a few years. I suppose it helps that any alternative that I wouldn't feel guilty about resorting to involves either a) reading completely new material for a class about four hours away or b) interviewing random strangers, I'm not so surprised to be here! On a side note, I just checked and have 41 drafts saved on this blog, some of them dating back to 2006. Given, a few only have titles or a couple of words in the body, but still. I have no explanation.

So, what's the chosen topic of the day? If you don't know by now, this post - and perhaps this entire blog - may completely elude you. Stick around, maybe you'll figure it out. You see how I think I'm amusing? It's a curse and a blessing, *sigh*. Yeah, I am a tad bit hyper. And this was supposed to be a serious post! Anyway...

Lately, I've been growing more and more susceptible to bad vibes, to what people do and say around me. It takes one casually dropped f-bomb during a phone conversation between another passenger and whoever's at the other end of the line, at 8 AM, while waiting for my bus, to pretty much taint the rest of my day with at least a shadow of melancholy. Sometimes it's worse and I spend the rest of the day in an irritable mood, which means I'm just carrying on the bad vibes and spreading them to others. Perfectly lovely, cheerful and energetic days are ruined just by overhearing a curse word.

And it's not just curse words.
