Some funny status messages..

Once in a while, you get the notion that you don't have anything to do at a given point of time. I have it too. In such scenario's, I prefer to watch some sports video that I have saved on my hard disk. Else, I play FIFA 12 (yes, waiting to buy FIFA 13). Else, sleep. Else (rarest of rare condition for any guy), try searching for old stuffs in your folders. Now I have been using a PC / Laptop since 2001. 11 years have gone by. I will be having something worth revisiting again. Maybe, that's why I haven't deleted it. So, that rarest of rare condition happened to me the other day. And apart from some old pics, I found a notepad with the title "Status messages". Wow!

Brief backdrop: Back in those days (college days), I used to chat a lot. Yahoo, MSN and Google messengers were always signed on when the net is connected. Addiction, maybe. Google had a status message option. This is where I used to insert the below mentioned messages. It started with one or two messages based on my mood. After I started getting positive feedback from friends, I took inspiration from some websites with funny status messages (read: copied) and sometimes prepared my own. Now I hardly come online to chat. My friends realized their mistake to motivate me, I think!

Kind courtesy: ehow.com
I intend to share some of the status messages. Some of them are genuine (or atleast I think I haven't copied it from some site). Some are inspirations from other sites. Some are extensions of popular messages. Here we go:
  • Change is inevitable. Either you change yourself voluntarily, or this world will change you
  • Smile. Coz tomorrow might be worse
  • Whenever man comes up with a better mousetrap, nature immediately comes up with a better mouse
  • I can see light at the end of the tunnel. But...
  • People who say "Till death do us apart" should never say "Give me my personal space"
  • If time and tide waits for no one, then why is there always next time?
  • Take your pick - You 'fall' in Love, or you 'rise' in Love...
  • If you are successful in Marketing, Kotler will include your strategy as an example. If you Fail, Matt Haig will include your failure as a chapter in his book "Brand Failures". Either ways, you become popular in Marketing!

I will have to dig deep to find more. I am sure I had more one-liners. In fact, one of my all time favorite is not mentioned above. Hopefully, I will find them soon. Until then, let me know your thoughts..

PS: I had written this post few weeks back anticipating the welcome changes happening in my family. Am publishing it now to keep my blog active. If you like what you read, just let me know. I have some more status messages. Will share them too.

  1. I use to hang on messengers for all day back in high school! But now I'd prefer to appear offline. Changes huh?

    1. Though many teenagers will disagree with me, I feel now status msgs are a thing of the past (definitely for me). Now these are used for facebook likes.

  3. There are somethings we never want to delete when we think we are sure that someday we will be able to cherish that particular memory :D

    What did you name your baby girl?

    1. Thanks Arti. Smile, coz tomorrow may be worse is a negative comment. I used it a lot during college days as my Gtalk status.
