Yet Another Sleepless Night..

As the title suggests , its been yet another sleepless night so far .I know 4 am is not the time to actually blog or do anything for that matter ,yet i seem to be awake at this time on a regular basis . Some of u may think "4 am , What is it that this knucklehead( I could not think of any other word to describe myself , anyways the ones that almost made it include 'moron' , 'jackass' and 'nincompoop')have to post at this time of the night or rather this time at dawn ??"

Well , as usual Ive been thinking a lot lately.As my friends say thats particular line ("Ive been thinking a lot) means only one thing . TROUBLE. Well , yes generally that line is said just before I go into this perennial state of depression which may last from a day to a week and sometimes even a month.But this time , things are different .

Just when I was happy thinking," Yaay two more months and am out of Chennai " (was literally counting down seconds) , Damn...."Damn" because I suddenly want more time here.You see , Life .my friends is pretty complicated.Just when you think life is getting back to normal , it takes an unexpected turn.Well If you know me well and have just read the previous line which in effect says " I want more time in Chennai" , You are bound to be surprised . Lets just say I have some unfinished business to be taken care of.

As my undergraduate studies draws to a close , theres another thing I am worried about ie. my future.Higher studies in the UK is what awaits me next and the thing is I don't know if I'll fit in there . There's a lot of doubt inside of me and I am finding it extremely difficult to find answers to a lot of questions.

There goes my roomie's alarm clock meaning it's time for me to sleep and him to wake up(We both live in two different time zones).As said by Ted(HIMYM), "Nothing good ever happens after 2 am".

Good Morning !!

As another week draws to a close , my countdown has begun , the countdown to finally graduate.This week was a very memorable one considering the fact that , I played my last game in the Crescent jersey against Hindustan University.Although we lost , it was an enthralling game and it was won with only three balls to spare.There's this thing about the Crescent College Cricket team , whichever tournament we play , we tend to get knocked out in the second round . It is sad considering the fact that our team has so much talent.
On a more personal note, the tournament , though it was not all that great for me (scores of 40* and 3 in the two games) , I cherished each and every moment and it was great to see the way the guys fought even when things were'nt going our way.
It was wonderful these four years playing for the college team and I hope this team moves from strength to strength. There's a hell a lot of talent in there and am sure a tournament victory is just around the corner.
I'd like to conclude this post by wishing my juniors all the very best in all their future tournaments.Eagerly waiting to play my last table tennis tournament for Crescent at JETS 2010 in the first week of March.

Birthday ....

Its been a while since i updated my blog.Been busy with a lot of things. Cresonance , project , inter year matches , the list is endless.

In between all this , I had a truly amazing 21st birthday.The surprise party and awesome dinner afterward made my last birthday in Chennai a truly memorable.The fact that I've never before got a surprise party on my birthday before made it all the more special.The cake a choclate truffle from cakes and bakes (I guess) was brilliant.Later that night , the dinner at Wang's kitchen was awesome too.

Thank you to all my friends who made this Birthday a memorable one.

Another thing is I realized , later that night was the fact that even though I hate this place for various reasons, somewhere deep down I think I am definitely going to miss the place.I have made some fantastic friends here , some of them have been there with me throughout the four years and others who are equally wonderful people who I did not know existed till a few months back.I cherish each and every moment Ive spent with them and I hope to stay in touch with them in the years to come.

Coming to my resolutions , well I have decided to try and stay out of controversies as much as possible ( this is like the most important one!!!!). Other than that I guess its the usual.

Well so here I am 21 ( feel kinda old!!) , and looking forward to being 22 in a years time !!!

As The Days Go By.....

Last night while going to bed , I was just going through the calendar on my cell phone and i realized that i would be turning 21 in a fortnight ."Twenty One", errr assuming i live for a hundred years(which I dont want to),mathematically it means that I have just lived out a little more than one fifth of my entire life.
So coming back to last night ,I decided to do a sort of self introspection.Questions such as

1. "What have i achieved in the 21 years I have spent on this planet?"
2. "What have I learned over the years ?"
3. "Where is my life headed?"

(these were the first three that came to my mind) etc etc popped up in my head.Answer to the question 1 was the simplest of the lot and the most irrelevant of the three as far as my future goes.Coming to question 2 , I guess my experiences have taught me a lot .As someone mentioned recently "You could write an autobiography ".Question 2 check.Question 3 was, at that time unanswerable.I had no idea , my head went blank .Then came the conditional offer from the University Of Leeds, that my friends was like breath of fresh air.
The answer to question two could have been an essay in itself .But since it contains some gruesome facts , I chose to conveniently ignore the elaboration.

Either ways , as days go by , life is getting complicated and difficult and I as a person am finding it exceedingly hard to keep up !!
