Merry Christmas

Its christmas once again..the time of the year when sharing and giving are ways to express one's love to fellow beings.
Sitting in one corner of a bedroom I have nothing to do but to trace back to the most eventful christmas eve and christmas nights of my life.I have not had many eventful ones so just a few to recall..and amongst them I enjoyed the christmas of 2006 the most.

The Angel of Christmas recent Past :D
I was in Pune last christmas..one of my friends Miss.E was missing home a lot and wanted to go back for a christmas dinner.We all wished we could do something to help her.So the gang got together and planned a cool suprise christmas night party for her.We collected enuff funds, and made up nice stories to make it a suprise for her.We went to the christmas sale in the biggest malls in Pune and looked for gifts for our chris kids.In the process made miss E to choose her gift without her realising it.
Then one of my friends, according to the plan, made up a story of a bad mood due to a fight with his girl friend. So he said he wanted to go to a movie, he said he wanted miss E to go with him to the movie so we could have some fun.I had a hell of a time faking the whole thing.So finally we went to "Bhagam Bhag"..not a very impressive movie, but for a movie we had to watch only till the interval it was good enuff.So after the interval we got the call from the rest of the gang that the party floor was ready.
Now my other friend said we need to rush back home as some other friend of ours was very sick.So we went back half way thru the movie.Miss E was lil upset abt the whole thingy...as she was not home..no christmas dinner...no church mass...now one friend had fought with his gf and another was sick.
But on getting back home when we all wished her merry christmas and served her christmas dinner she was in tears...We were so happy to have made someone's christmas day tat time.As for the gifts..she was so happy to get the things she loved.

Its true that in there is more fun in giving than in receiving.
Wish u all a merry christmas...Missing home a lot now :(.

Destination LA

It was 7.45 in the morning..I woke up from a night mare, a bad one at it.Looking around the room, I find all my things scattered on my side of the room and on the other side of the room we see my roomie completely wrapped up in 2 blankets..yeah it is a cold day.I was not able to go to sleep again, so I walk to brush my teeth, I open the tap and out flows very cold water and my hands instantly freeze...wow who said Florida is the sunshine state.I was going to leave to LA by the evening flight and all my clothes were unwashed and dirty.So I run to the launder-o-mat, the first thing after my coffee.
The flight was scheduled at 5.05 in the evening.I had not decided how to get to the airport still.I knew I can't take a bus from downtown..I don't know the very thought of getting there gives me chills.So I decide to take a taxi.I call up some local taxi guy..ask him to send the at 3.Now I find a more interesting problem, I have too less money to pay my taxi.
Life is no fun without a troubles rt..so here I had a lot of things to trouble me..I need to make my lunch and dinner(domestic flights within US starve ppl), I had to pack a couple of dresses and finally yeh finally I need a minimum of 40$ to get to the LA airport.So I went to the bus stop looking for a bus to go to an ATM alas, murphy's law was working so perfectly, there were no buses now..damn, I stood there for 20 mins all in vain..I turn around walk into my apartment complex..swish there goes a bus!!! I love my LUCK :)
So here I go thinking and thinking about how I am going to pay my taxi?Finally I hit reality..yes I could easily take the route to the airport via the neat ATM :D.
So finally I reached the airport via an ATM rich route..so I paid my taxi and also reached to the airport on time.I sit and read a stupid good for nothing book...seriously I felt bad about my judgement skills to get a good book!.So here I am travelling all alone with a very boring book all the way to LA.

I am sure its gonna be a great boring trip, a trip I am seriously gonna get bored every second.Except for getting to LA, I was not interested in anything in the trip.

So I got to Atlanta next, the intermediate stop.I walked all over the airport and found the gate I had to take my flight from.I sat close to it and started thinking how the next two hrs was going to be.After sometime I got up to find a coffee shop.
Not that I was sleepy, but i was very thirsty, in a country were pure water was as costly as coffee, I decided to take coffee instead.I asked for a small cup of coffee and like I have already mentioned I got so much coffee, as much I should have had in the whole day.After pouring down a considerable amount in transit to my seat I drank up the coffee and started watching the tv in the terminal.Well the news was even more stupid to watch.So I kept looking at the ppl around, quite an entertainment.

Finally after a completely boring 5 and half hour flight, sitting near the window, totally immobile all the time I reached LA.I did not even sleep for 2 mins, the guy sitting next to me and the old lady next to him were snoring away to glory.I was wondering how ppl made it to wonderland in such restricted spaces, my legs were in extremely painful position and I was so thankful to reach LA..phew, long journey believe me..too long...Looks like I am growing old ;).

One Down..Three to GO!!

Its been four full months of toiling, sweating...frustrating project ends, terrible homework and nightmares called midterms and end terms.It all got over today..yes exactly 45 mins ago I put down my pencil after writing my last exam of this semester.
I felt horrible cos the questions were puzzling, but the other side of heart said..."Its all over for the next 15 days".
Yeah the next semester starts in 15 days..I now know what is to be done, to work, to look for the right things, to look at myself at the most depressing moment and smile and say..its ok you did ur best.
The last time in life I had been in such terrible place was when I was working for my board exams in the 12th class.Here I am again , pushing my limits everyday and hoping I will be fine with every step.
There were sooper low days, which made me look like a stranger to me.There were hyper days, when things were magically right.But there was not a day I did not miss the other person I was..She who was there a year ago.The girl I loved a lot..I lost her somewhere in this year long journey to "I DONO WHAT"...
I miss everything that was in my life.
