The Sanctum

Aiyyashi/Nirvana: The Ultimate Conflict

Right, so we have here A series of unfortunate events. Why is it that only when you have a fever the holidays occur, when you're fine classes are in full bloom, when you get crippled in the leg you feel like travelling, or when your attendance is at an all-time low you feel like bunking?
Life's little mysteries. There was a comic strip about Goofy being unable to sleep properly, so what he does is he calls up an employment agency and asks them for work.
The agency always needs workers. So it gives him a huge list of work to be done. Happy that his life isn't empty, he goes to sleep.

And that's what everyone feels like. Everyone includes even the workaholics. Without exception, there is a niggling feeling of playing hooky that everyone's fond of. Let me give you some advice here. Don't follow that feeling. I did, and look where I am:
-Without any attendance whatsoever.

Nice place, all things considered. But not exactly future-centric, which is another place to be entirely.
So understand what you've got to do. Give up your pleasures now for your pleasures in the future.
Give up aiyyashi so that you can achieve nirvana. Easy, isn't it?
Easy in theory like everything. In fact, it's so goddamn hard that I think I'll stick with aiyyashi, and enjoy my life now. No matter what the case, I know one day that I'll regret this act; but until then, hallelujah.


  1. Take each day as it comes. Live in the present, why worry about the future?
