Tell me.

So I need your help with this survey that I'm doing that will help unearth new information on how monkeys interact under pressure in urban settings.

Not.

How do you navigate your emotions? Do you keep a constant watch on them to make sure they vary only to the extent of +/- 10% from a fixed mean, and by mean I mean (See what I did there? Right.) a neutral, slightly happy state? No overwhelming joys and heart-wrenching lows?

Or do you just let it be, watch your spirits get buoyed to enormous heights by the littlest of things, only to watch them come crashing down till they make a big hole in your heart? And when that happens, what do you do to appear normal/not bat-shit crazy?

Do you assess your surroundings and change accordingly? Maybe you have an office mode and a Turbo mode just for friends?

Don't say you find a balance. You can't. If I had to hear that I'd watch some religious channel with a man in turbans telling me how to live.

As I said, I need all this information to assess the environmental impact a blue sky might have on the equator of the earth.

Not.  
As your prize for answering all that, you get to listen to some awesome stuff. You don't need to understand the language. Go get your earphones, quick!

  2. he he...dont know what made you ask this, but I quite like the way you put it :D

  3. Revacious,

    You need to visit Delhi to see how monkeys behave in urban setting. Hardly any of us can claim to have total control over our emotions. We all do get swayed by emotions to some extent or the other. One can only make efforts to keep it under control as much as one can. One does need to keep surroundings in mind as one can not do at office or formal places what one does at home or in informal settings.

    Take care

    1. Hmm.. actually, I don't really know. Is that supposed to point me to something, that balance simply doesn't exist?
