No individual stays idle or bored since the brain continues to work through thinking, imagining and wondering what do to next. With the advanced technology, most people spent their days with with computers but who acknowledges what is happening inside the head of a person and simultaneously with the computer s/he is staring at. Each one of us participate either in profit or non profit activities. Some are studying while some are just reading.
It was right after my 2nd class that I decided to go to the library where student spent their quality time in doing their assignments. It is not compulsory to do so. Library is not just for studying because as long as we get the computer, it’s on our hand to click and enter any website we want to visit during our free hours.
Library is huge and so is the number of students in the university. Sometimes, we get the seats with just one blink of an eye and sometimes, our eyes get tired by searching for the computer and we will have to walk and do two or three round about to get a seat. So today, I did one round inside of the library looking for a computer and hoping to get one without doing another round. This has become the daily routine of everyone of us looking, searching and hoping to get a computer.
Finally, after wondering for five to ten minutes, I got a seat nearby a man. He was busy scrolling up the lecture notes and w exchanged a friendly and a fake smile while my thought was wondering to open and update my face book homepage. No sooner did I sit on my chair, I clicked to face book eager to see the notifications and comment on the status. As I was going through the updates and pictures of my friends, another guy sat on the empty chair and a computer next to me. Naturally, my head turned right, I smiled and then I was back to my work in the face book. He was a total Asian geek with the headphones in his ear and then started to face book. His computer is not so far, I believe it was in Chinese version.
Here I am, sitting in the middle of two guys, one Muslim and the other, Asian Geek. The former one started to snore as in he was busy sleeping trying to balance his bend head as and when his head nodded towards the south. I was laughing from inside and thinking he should leave home if he is that sleeping to sleep in the library in front of other students. But anyways, strangers are strangers and people here really don’t bother despite being in the same University. Anyhow, my face book account is already closed but the latter guy who was face booking started to play with his phones and then left off suddenly.
Sigh! Both of them left the computer and the chair is now empty waiting for other students to occupy the space. I remained calm on my chair and I started to think about our daily life; we are neither busy nor are we bored. In one way or the other, people are engaged in doing some activities just like the guy who slept in the process of reading the notes and then walking off to somewhere and the other, who kept busy surfing the net and leaving off to nowhere again. Similarly, my face book account is closed determined to do the next work or I may stay idle but this is the rare case. We are idle but thinking and imagining never leaves us behind and instead keeps us occupied and entertained.
