One year old !

Yay !!! My blog just turned one today !!!
Happy birthday dear blog !!!

A small digression (but not quite , really) :I have this tendency to remember dates... you know.. dates as in....umm ..like...you know...
argh! You get it , dont you??

Like , for example , exactly a year back , I had come back from Shimla.... and OMG ..... as soon as I landed in Delhi.... man !!!!! It was as if someone had just tossed me into an oven....
After enjoying Shimla's lovely weather, the heat in Delhi hit me so bad ...I actually thought I might be having fever !!

Then , on our way back to Jaipur...me being the foodie that I am...I was looking forward to stopping at Haldiram's at the Delhi -Jaipur highway...!
So what if it was just 8 am.?????
But ...alas... Haldirams was closed ...!! Can u believe that??
I was totally heart-broken !

Finally , at 8 am , we had no other option but to go to McDonald's....!!!

I finally reached Jaipur...my ear aching and the heat getting increasingly unbearable , the ac not making much of a difference.

That very night , back at home in Jaipur , I wrote my first post.

That very night , I had this weird dream...and well , it wasnt totally inexplicable .
I could figure out and interpret the hidden meanings.

Man , 1 year has passed by in a flash!!!

I've got to know so many people through this blog. Its wonderful , you know.

A lot of things have changed and a lot are still the same....


I think..I've changed..in a few, subtle ways...
My outlook and perspective on a lot of things have changed.
I've learnt a lot of lessons...some of them , in very hard ways.

So enough for now. I'm sleepy.
No , no ..Ive got to study.
The heat is too much. I need to sleep..I mean study ! Argh!!!
Anyway , have a nice week ..or whatever is left of it...lol!

And yes , Happy birthday once again , my dear blog!
Here's to many more posts about me , moi , myself!!!

Exam time eccentricities

Hello people!!!
I know , I know I havent updated since ages...but believe me I had my reasons!
Reason no. 1 being exams and reason no.2 also being exams!!

Okay , so I was all set to take my exams from the 1st of june , but riots and disturbances in my part of the country resulted in exams being postponed and your highness' moods crazily swinging back and forth , from being happy one moment to getting totally pissed off the other.
So , finally , everything has calmed down...and well , I am having to sit for my exams...which by the way, had been indefinitely postponed !
Sadly , this indefinite period lasted for a week which was both , a good and a bad thing.


I don't think I can ever forget the zillion phone calls we made and non-stop text messaging we did , trying to contact everyone and anyone who had the slightest inkling of when the next exam would be held.

But study , we must.

I'm doing most of my serious studying at night.
And after 2 minutes of intense studying (blank staring , actually ) , I absolutely need to take a 2 hour break to get refreshed.
Yes , honey , thats me!

So what do I do?
This is what I do , priority wise:

1) I indulge in doing absolutely nothing at all.

2) I , purposefully , walk across my room , at 2 am , proceed to my dressing table and then I apply makeup!
Yes , that's right.That's exactly what I do. I will go on to use all sorts of eye shadows in all sorts of bizzare manner.And whats the excuse I give myself?
"There's a wedding in the family. I need to perfect different looks right from now.Hence the daily practice."

3)Earlier, another thing I used to do a lot was eat at all times, 12am , 1 am , 3 am.I have stopped.There's a wedding in the family . I need to get in shape.

Also , just as I got to know that my exams have been postponed , I go shopping.The reason being:
There's a wedding in the family.I need to look great.I just have to find the perfect dress for myself.Hence , the shopping spree.

The other day , I start feeling sleepy at 1 a.m .
So , I tell myself :

"Look , if you're sleepy , you cant concentrate and keeping the lights on , you'll only be wasting electricity. And , we must save electricity.We absolutely MUST save electricity. So switch off the lights. (and hit the sack)"

And I ACTUALLY , turned off the lights and slept!!!!!
I chuckle to myself whenever I think of this.

One thing my Dad always tells me is:

"Look , you need to sleep for atleast 7 hrs , you know. Only then will you feel fresh and study well.Only then will you be able to attempt your questions well. "

And , my Dad , has been telling me this same thing with great conviction right from the time I had my 10th grade board exams. Therefore , in the rare occasion that I give up on my beauty sleep, the only thing that bothers me is :

"OMG , what if I fall asleep in the middle of the exam??? What then?? Who's gonna wake me up???"

Another thing of great importance and even greater consequence:I am, most of the time , incapable of hearing alarms.I may set a zillion alarms , I may ask a zillion people to call and wake me up , but no, I am my Daddy's girl , I will not sacrifice my sleep time.Hence , all kinds of alarms blare out at blood-curdling decibel levels at all kinds of ungodly hours .
Result :Everyone in my house is up and awake.

Everyone except sleeping beauty.

There's a wedding in the family , I cant let my light dark circles transform into dark dark circles.I absolutely need my beauty sleep.

But , I'm a great friend. If you have me as your friend , you're lucky. Really.The other day , Yash calls me up saying that she absolutely has to wake up at 3 am. I say " Done baby ! I'll be studying till 3 am so no probs." What I forgot was that my 2nd exam as well had been postponed and hence , I wouldnt stay up that late.

But , no my friends , I actually stay up till 3 am and wake up Yash.
So what if, for timepass till 3am , I tortured sane , unsuspecting people into a tedious, 3 - hour long sms conversations with me ?

I am a loyal friend.

Basically , through this post , all I'm trying to say is:
I'm a lazy bum . I need my beauty sleep. But Yash , I woke you up.
I'll be looking forward to the treat. :D

P.S. The " wedding in the family" is actually gonna take place after almost 2 months.

P.P.S. Yash , you're a darling. I'll get my much deserved treat, of that I'm sure.
But , the next time you ask me to wake you up at some ungodly hour , please also remember to ask me if I do have any reason to be awake at that time.


The Girl

I'm cool , I'm smart , I'm all the things you wish you were...!

Get Engrossed !!!
