Tom I leave for the unknown... have had to pack my luggage without a clue as to where I will be, for how long and doing what... I hate to leave... home is such a good place, the most difficult decisions of my day have been what to cook for lunch/dinner... And as things started getting exciting (with bro's JEE and AIEEE pouring in) I have to leave. Mom has been cracking jokes about how she is losing 3 maids (me)... and bro is going to miss my laptop. Kya ajeeb log hai!!! Cheers to a new life and good-bye to the old one... no matter how it turns out, I know I will survive
Hi... I am sorry for the silence. It is very much unlike me. I have joined work... which involves travelling... after a week of induction at Gurgaon, I am in B'glore for 4 days and then off to one of the Southern states for 2 months of sales stint.
Tom is my B'day and I had been praying I would not sent to a rural area atleast for that day. Last year on 11th June, I was on the train from Chennai to A'bad. The best part of the day was when I reached home a few minutes before midnight. I promised myself I would make up for it this year... don't see that happening. No problem, I will have the gr8test b'day ever next year. Do you remember about the time you learned to swim? The water seemed scary, didn't it? You were worried about how cold it would be... wat did you do then? Just closed your eyes and jumped into the pool? Thats wat the last few days have been like. Before leaving, I was freaking out... just wanted to run away (always feel that way before beginning something new)... but then I took the plunge...
Current location: Chennai Arrived on: 15th June Duration of stay: 2 weeks Next destination: Madurai
Weather: Pleasant... humid... (it rained the day I arrived. God is gr8!!!) No of friends here: None No of aquaintances here: Not sure
Work timings: 10:00 am to 7:00 pm (excluding time spent commuting) Time spent commuting: 2 hrs (approx) Office: hahaaha!!! The market is my work place. Dress code: A conservative as possible... it doesn't help that my skin color makes me stand out anyway (A shopkeeper asked the salesman if I am a foreigner... yeeks!!!)
Food: Strictly South Indian... North Indian food is quite bad out here. Nuisance: Auto-walas and lecherous men (Thankfully, I don't speak a word of Tamil) Language: Use sign language to communicate... my Tamil is limited to "cheri" which means "ok".... and "ille" which means "yes" or "no"... I am not sure which.
