25 years old...

and am still around...(it was yesterday)

well...to begin with..i think i have finally grown up..coz one sure shot sign of it was that hardly anyone remembered it...i remember i used to be yelled at for sleeping off before midnight..coz friends who wanted to be first in wishing me would call..and i wouldn't be around to answer...but this time..i stayed up (thanks to a test the next day)..and voila!! NO ONE CALLED!! not even the expected calls...so that's settled then..i have finally grown up! (and an sms from an old friend (i hope) confirmed it when it read 'welcome to adulthood at last!!')

so the next day was depressing to the core...i spent about six hours studying for the test..four hours writing the test..and the next four hours contemplating and waiting for calls...and then there was a time when there used to be rushed surprises pulled together by friends who forgot the day...goof ups with gifts and cards... reassurances about how they set reminders on their mobile phones...

well...that was then...and this is now...and i must say i'm holding out pretty well...the three heads of the four headed entity (comprising of menon, abhishek and anshika, the fourth head being me) salvaged what was left of the day with chocolate walnut brownies and ice cream...

and of course thanks suhas, gaurav, imran and padma. i promise to blog more often henceforth...(that being my silver jubilee resolution..i think...)

At Job get free snacks all day.I have heard Indians have so called famine jeans in them. Now I am a walking(sitting) testamenet to it.

Basically, trudging alon. :)

Two reasons for not calling at midnight
First, I know that you go off to sleep early.
Secondly, I was in office at 8:00 a.m next morning.

In any case, next time onwards I'll not wait for the B'day day.

About the cities, I feel good about a city because of people, I wish you were here.

Most importantly forgetting people seems to be the latest trend in fashion industry. It is catching up people pretty fast.

Cheers...

I have not been too popular on this blogspot. Inspite of that I had been earnestly waiting for the next post.

And I waited for months.

Welcome back and wish you a belated 'Happy Birthday'.

Do not mind the name you see this comment under.

Twenty - five years and my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
And I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of this brotherhood of man
For whatever that means......

what's up?

Hey, what exactly is happening here? From maybe two blogs a day you have gone to none at all in the last two months.

Whatever the initial comments from me looked like and suggested my opinion about your blog, I eagerly read whatever you have to say.
