I wouldn’t have survived in Mumbai for 3 years if I didn’t explore the things I liked about this city. Whether it's people, cafés, or book shops — socialize in your own way. Your job benefits from you being ‘all work and no play’. But do you? Without friends that I care for and the love for the city, I would have given up way back.
Because you will have moments when you feel lonely, homesick, or just low for no apparent reason. In these moments you would want people who will binge Brooklyn Nine-Nine with a tub of ice-cream with you. And then suddenly it’s not all that tough.
With the right people and a positive environment you’ll find peace in the things you hated. You might find a slightly better room-mate, a better job, and much better friends that will make your Wake Up Sid dream seem achievable.
