Advice to that weird 16yr old geek

November 30, 2009

My previous post was not a lame attempt at the Tag by Sabbyaz and Angel. Although I must admit the thought crossed my mind, Sabbyaz was on my case. So here goes..

Wait a min. As a firm believer of the Butterfly Effect (watched the movies 1,2 & 3), and given the fact that I wouldn’t want to change anything, given a second chance, I’m the last person to be doing this. πŸ˜€ No? Still can’t get away with it? Ok ok.. for real.

Oi Chaar~Max!

How’s it hanging maan? Ha ha.. As always eh?

So remember that letter you published in an Interact Mag, as the future you asking for money to correct mistakes and save the world? Well guess what? The future me, I mean you actually exists. High Five! Ya, ya.. it’s the Time-Space-Continuum thingy Mr. Star Wars.

Ok so basically I’ve gotten my self Tagged to give you a heads up, on what is in store for you. Tagged? It’s one of those things on the net. Blogging. Ya, I know, the Internet has come along way and a lot more people are on it, from the days you hacked into people’s dial-up accounts. About that, T’s gonna get caught, but not like you guys are going to stop anyway.

So getting back, what can I say.. going by all the other advice letters being written, it’s either about girls or boys and broken hearts. So your sorted. Your gonna have neither, and I know your not bothered. Don’t worry about the girls, enjoy your self. There’ll be enough time for them… and the girls who thought you the were the weirdest, out of the lot, end up becoming your best friends. Till then, don’t count on positive recommendations from them. He he.

There are a few bomb shells I’m avoiding dropping on you, but just to save you from the heartache let me tell you. You don’t end up working from a basement, trying to hack into financial institutions. You don’t end up bringing down the Internet, andΒ  sadly you are yet to define a standard for IEEE. But life isn’t bad. Trust me, just that when your around 20 it’ll take a different turn. When I say turn, it’ll end up being an about-turn. This is the best part of your life. Aaand if it’s some consolation, you still retain your Geek status, to a certain extent.

Enough about the Rosey patches. Now to the thorns. Your going to face a lot of tough decisions in the coming years, starting with A/L’s. Ammi’s going to want you to do English. Don’t worry you end up making the right decisions, all through up to now. You’ll walk away from some too. Regret it later, but you made the right decision. It’s all about the risk.. and trusting your conscience.

Your A/L years are going to be the best, in school. You’ll learn stuff way beyond the school curriculum, and will be tested with responsibility. You’ll have loads of fun and cherish every moment of it, coz I still do. But, before you get all your hopes high.. all of it is not going to be a cake-walk. There are going to be some sad moments in your life, when you least expect it. You’ll cry like a baby. But walk away from it a changed man. Don’t think too much about that now, spend as much time with your friends. You’ll do some crazy stuff with them, worth telling your grand children. Those memories will help you get through anything.

Oh and that bike of yours, Kinght Rider.. just because you now know, that you don’t die till your 27 now, doesn’t mean that you can put your self infront of a moving vehicle and do your thing. So go easy on the stunts, I appreciate that all limbs are still attached to me. He he..

Well, I dunno that’s about it I guess. Wouldn’t want to ruin all the fun for you, and I certainly wouldn’t want you doing anything differently. Now I wish I get a letter from an older me, coz I have some damn tough decisions to make. I hope, I’m as lucky as you are.

HAVE FUN ~ GO MAD! (Your fav phrase! Ofcourse I know you.. I’m you, remember!)

Now for the Tagging part. Since most of the Blogsphere seems to be captured according to RD’s graphical analysis, thought I’d open it out to a few hiding below the radar. Dulan and Nazly your it. Now go ahead boys, don’t be shy! πŸ˜€
