No ''free'' time

There is nothing in life
For free

Time, in particular
Is costly!

If you can grasp this fact
You're free!

From boredom and loneliness
Can't you see?

This life is short, time is limited
It's fruitless to be

Wasting it away, in things
Aimlessly

To go on and let days pass by
Lazily...

It's time to wake up, time to look ahead
High time to see

These seconds won't ever come again
However things may be

Make the best of now, and don't think how
You'll end up to be

I should be the first, to listen to these words
Quite keenly {:o(}

And start preparing, like
Seriously...

For the ever-dreaded...

*lote pote with laughter*

:D:D

The verse is so cool! Thanks for the encouraging comment.. :D
But I am complaining about my own test... lol, how can I take anybody else's :P. Best of luck to you!

The path to PhD is a murky one.. :) And more than once, I have been re-thinking and having second thoughts. That's severely getting in the way of my motivation.

But thanks for the comment!.. My day had been terrible so far :S. At least your comment was hilarious :D

Is it ghalib's shair modified? Because I heard a slightly different one in an indian movie :P
ever watched "kabhi khushi kabhi ghum"?

majworld said...

@uni: math is not a tension, english mein booti ki zaroorat hai, ur vocabulary gives slight hope in that regard, dats y u shud think taking it on my behalf english wala part. :p
nd dun wry, such shuffles in decision happens as our thinkings get changed or influenced regularly..but try to decide once and stick to it..
nd try more on the thesis and research part coz that's a superior factor than gre for funding..u'll get some gud funding easily then..gudluck anyways...nd am glad u enjoyed the comment :)

@passing stranger: oh u dun know i have special sympathies and attachment for them :p
nd ya its ghalib shair which i modified..bit of plagiarism :) nd in dat movie too, its the original ghalib shair...bdi strong memory hai urs, even though almonds are not so cheap these days :)

@majworld: some things stick well in the brain and this particular place did :)
@Uni: give good time to math, english and analytical writing. start practising from past papers asap! (along with memorization)

PassingStranger said...

there is alot of stuff out there, but have a look at this, worth a check for the verbal section

Utkarsh said...

Nice! Exactly what I was thinking about this afternoon. :|

When is your GRE?

Uni said...

@Utkarsh
Yeah. My GRE is (I haven't registered yet), but it's probably somewhere around 1st week of Feb, 2011 Insha Allah.

Thanks for the comment :)

The path to PhD is a murky one.. :) And more than once, I have been re-thinking and having second thoughts. That's severely getting in the way of my motivation.

One of my favorite quote goes like:

“There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it's easy.”

Thought this would help!

Uni said...

@Moon
Thanks so much for sharing the quote. It's 100% true.

But the thoughts that get in between my motivation have nothing to do with GRE being scary! (yeah it is scary, but second thoughts aren't based on that) - they're just based on the murkiness [obscurity :D] of this path!

Thanks for dropping by!
