I am going home today for a month (actually a month and 5 days)! yayy!! I never thought I would be able to stay away from home for such a long time considering how i used to pack my bags and run back to Bangalore every weekend when I was in Mysore Infy (of course, that was affordable :P). Its been a year and a half since I've gone home, met my parents, slept on my bed, had my mom's food, pampered by grandparents, shopped on commercial street with my sis... ah... and the list goes on... :) Bye bye CP for a month. I am sure il miss CP, its my second home now. Thanks to all my lovely friends here. Love ya all and c ya all in a month!!! :)
Happy New Year!! :)
... and i'll get back to my last minute packing :P
I had scribbled this on the day I finished 1 year in the US. Posting it here now.
Aug 10th 2008 - Its been a year in the US and I feel I have grown so much more responsible and mature than I was when I just landed here. Life here has taught me so much – good and bad, I have experienced so much – sweet and bitter.. I don’t think I could have spent a year of my life in a better way.. Now when I retrospect, 1 year just flashes in front of my eyes.. those initial days of struggle and job hunting.. first salary, my lappie, grocery shopping almost every week, cooking disasters, early morning mad rush to catch the shuttle, night outs – sometimes to have intellectual talks and sometimes just random talks.. and ya sometimes to study as well :), those memorable getaways with friends, shopping and splurging away to glory, missing home.. moments of depression and loneliness, living through the day on bagels and cream cheese, gtalking and catching up with long lost friends, googling almost everything possible on earth, watching movies online, roomie talks, managing home n work or rather trying to manage and fail miserably and then end up thinking… how do our moms manage it so brilliantly… everyday I used to have my lunchbox ready at 7 am.. EVERYDAY.. without fail.. it still seems magical to me!!, attending evening classes, walking those lonely and lively roads in all the 4 seasons – admiring the fall colors, enjoying the snow fall, wearing colorful outfits in spring and living it up in summer….
Am sittin on a bean bag looking out through my window.. it looks beautiful outside.. kept it open a bit and enjoying the lovely breeze... but i dont feel like going out or something.. i hate rains.. everything just seems perfect for me to start blogging :).. the only missing pieces are hot pakodas and chai.. This blog is not with a specific subject or theme in mind.. it will just be my thoughts n randomness put to words.. I just hope i get some time to spend on my bean bag (blue one;)) though, now that the fall semester has started in full swing and we are back to the grind. Nevertheless, a BIG HI to all my fellow blogger friends.. i am gonna stick around :)
