2)One thing I have grown to absolutely hate is how everything, everyone, everywhere always move on. Nothing, noone, never wait for you or care to pick you up.

Dismiss her as someone who is just addicted to something and is making excuses for it? Dismiss her as someone who is trying to lie to you? Dismiss her as someone who cannot be helped?
All three can be as easily answered YES. As easy as making a guy trust you, or fall for you. (Inside joke,black humor). But take a step back. Take a second to think. Put your vanity and pride aside and look beyond her trying to con you.
This is a human life we are trying to deal with and fix. Hard to accept, but just like you and me. One and all. Less fortunate. Once again, as I always say, imagine ourselves in that situation. Imagine growing up like that. Without a family stabilising you at every hard decision you had to make. Having to possibly visit your loved ones in jail. No education. No idea or concept of right or wrong. More distinctly, an absolute and completely different principle to life than us. To have to sell yourself for some drugs, or to get by, and not feel anything about it. I would say you have won half the battle against the world's vices if you can even fathom the distance between her life and yours.
Thus starts the turmoil again, of questions. This is a human life. How can it be so random? I know people who have every aspect of their life regulated by their loved ones towards 'success' and 'happiness'. How does this planet accomodate such bloody extremes? ....will finish soon.
That's about that. The second issue is with these people who cannot for one minute sympathise with such people.
For now, I just need some happy, simple people in my life...pray. Like that happiest kid in the pic above.
All that skiing and golfing and huge tv does seem to help!! So for someone who said money can't buy happiness, I'd say I'd rather be sad in a ferrari than a toyota. And you can't spread happiness if you don't cultivate happiness in yourself, it being a state of mind and all that... will surely finish soon!!!!!

Alright, to avoid a quick end to this one, let me expand the above a little.
A change from routine: Especially on long trips, you have the whole trip to yourself. If you can muster it, solitude even.Both the to and fro destinations are filled with people or work or expectations, but the journey itself--status staticus(solemn static state I mean).
New people: obvious.
Unlimited fakeness: The same fakeness that you are served everyday seems nice when served on a short term, if you know what I mean. The air-hostesses and the hosts in particular...politeness and grace is a thing of the past, they have to overdo things. Well, who can blame anyone as that is all you find everywhere else. But as always, credit where it's due-This particular Etihad crew was just polite with just the appropriate camaraderie,bless them. One small bunch of passengers did get excited and would make up every little excuse to make up conversations with them at the back. When I asked the host if they were creating the turbulence on purpose so that the dudes would get back to their seats, sure enough he said that he wished the turbulence stayed all through the flight duration...lol.
So with all this going on, you don't have any expectations from anyone, no buildup of trust ,no bullshit. Almost a microcosm of life itself- you live alone and you damn sure die alone-quoting Dr. Cox from Scrubs.
The chickenburger from McDonald's at AbuDhabi airport was scrumptious btw,. I don't get to savour it in US for lack of halal meat.
One other issue, one which I'm a tad passionate about, busting cliches. "The silent ones are the ones who are more dangerous and to be careful with" or something like that. Borrowing another line from Scrubs- 'People are bastards coated bastards with bastard filling' that includes all people, silent and non-silent. So, it's just crazy to single them out. If I'm being polite I'd say they are humans too and they have the same sins among them as the others so it'd be you who needs to smarten the fuck up. And if I'm being blunt I'd say Smarten the fuck up you dumb pieces of you know what, cos at least the silent ones have the dignity to not justify their vices, to keep things under wraps knowing that wrong is wrong and are most likely in a state of internal struggle unlike the other group who go around happily doing all they want and also are easily adjusted and ego-syntonic with themselves. So next time you wanna utter some dumb cliche like that, think once more if you can, do everyone a favor and shut the fuck up!

I recently heard a joke -'How do doctors commit suicide---by jumping off their ego'. After spending sometime in here, I concur with this. One would have thought that having to deal with something as blatantly real as death on a daily basis, there would not be any scope for petty egos in this field. But as it happens always, we are always wrong when we expect some idealism sprouting from logic.
