I’ve stopped making plans.
There’s so much to do, so many places to be at, so many people to meet that I don’t want to promise anyone anything. And I don’t like to cancel plans and disappoint anyone, so I figured the best thing is to not make any plans in the first place. Rather I make plans at the last minute depending on my mood. I like the spontaneity and randomness of last minute plans.
So like always I don’t have the weekend planned. But there’s lot of things I could do, like the following...
Head to Blue Frog… there’s an awesome electronic music gig and it’s my favourite club.
Call my friends and decide to head to any of our favourite joints at Colaba.
Call for a game of late night Texas Hold’em poker with my close buddies.
Wait for friend’s call for dinner plans and join the gang for massive dinner plans that will go on till late night.
Stay home and mix some music with my brother… we’ve recently started something new, so continue working on it.
Head to Zenzi Mills with my brother, another favourite spot… won’t be disappointed no matter what’s on.
Wait for a colleague at work to decide on some after work plans tonight.
OR… gatecrash another colleague’s plan.
Saturday and Sundays are usually relax-mode in the day time reading or on the laptop, until the madness begins again at night.
So… I’ll call you and let you know what the plan is then ;)
