day so far

Morning:
feeling pretty good.
woke up at a record 9.15am. Office starts at 9.30. No coffee, did bathe though!!! Managed it in time :)
Winamp actually played! It acted corrupt again last evening even after all those times i installed and un0installed it. and what songs it played! :) Made me feel pretty good.
Mailed all frnds, there was a long series on Bombay floods and cribs in general.
Rexzilla sent Google Earth Images of our institute, and the one showing that area from a ht of 6km promptly became my desktop. A source of envy for others (I hope) :)

Afternoon:
canteen decies to have what they call a "Weekend Fiesta". an idea that bombed last time when they tried it out - Better food from good caterers on weekends, i.e. Friday, saturday, for an extra of 5 per plate. Was ok, better than the last time caterers.
Came back however with a nagging headache.
Just had tea outside office, and back. Now to work...i hope

wondering

what does it take to be passionate about something? believe in it totally, and only?

there are so many who will give up anything for one cause...and not because they have been born into it, or have seen anything against/for it. Just that they believe in it. Where do they get the drive, pasion, force, drive to do it? How do they believe in it so much?

Im not talking of relegion here, im talking of other spheres. Peace workers who have lived in peace all their lives. Business ppl who have lived in affluence all their lives. activists who have never met one or felt the need of one in their history of 3 generations.

What gives? Where? How? How come there are such ppl who find their vocation as early as early teens? There are people like us, well OK me, who are less than jacks of some trades. and dont have the passion, ownership, will to do somethings. and then you have these ppl who will ... well, ill nt repeat myself.

I ask you this direct question. A truthful answer needed: 'What are you passionate about?'

I dont mean like, enjoy, love. I mean passion.

As for me. Nothing.
