Lazybones…

Call me a narcissist if you want to, but this post is dedicated to ME. Obviously, someone as talented, brilliant, and superb does deserve at least one post, right?

 

Well, the entire idea of this post is not just to praise myself to the high heavens. (Though of course, that will keep happening intermittently.)

 

I can’t believe it’s been just two weeks since I got back to the beautiful XLRI campus. For the first few days, it was tough getting used to the sultry heat of Jamshedpur, after the beautiful climes of Bangalore. (I appreciate ‘sultriness’ in certain other forms (wink wink) but surely not in the weather.)

 

However, what added to the excitement was the presence of 240 new juniors. It sure is a good feeling to attain the status of an all-knowing, wise, exalted senior. (Little do those poor newbies know that we seniors are not so wise and intelligent after all.)

 

And what has been killing me is the fact that I have zillions of classes each day, loads of assignments and projects, juniors to mentor, and of course my Placement Committee work. I totally enjoy the last bit – all the thrills, spills, and grills (you get the picture, right?). Of course, it keeps me occupied for long, but then as long as I enjoy it, that’s good enough, I guess.

 

Another significant incident that took place this week was that I finally picked up enough courage to express my love to a girl. I’d been trying to say it for weeks. Sadly enough, she gave me the ‘Golden Boot’. But, she and I stay good friends, and that does matter. Significantly.

 

The coming week promises to be even tougher, and if you could just see the bleary-eyed, wild-haired, unshaven writer of this post, you’d probably be forgiven for thinking that he bears a rather striking resemblance to an escaped convict.

 

I’ve been meaning to join the gym to get rid of the camel-esque storage of resources that I’ve been carrying with me. However, time just seems to fly by each day, and by the time I pause in my busy schedule, most of the day is already gone.

 

I may soon start showing signs of narcolepsy, if the schedule doesn’t ease up…..zzzzzzzzzzzzz….

Everything was so nice and dandy till u said 'gym'. This is one thing in MY life(u have company, I can be narcissistic at times too!)I haven't been consistent for more than a week about. :)

Juniors.. Ride high on the seniority bandwagon. :) It all gets over even before u come to terms with it!

@B... Gymming sucks! :P

@Bunty... Yeah, the weather's far better nowadays, and well the juniors are okay-ish. :P They still need to be kicked now and then to prevent them stepping out of line, though.

Hey Sumit - It's better to have loved and lost....etc..right? And staying friends is good too - in fact, sometimes it's better. Years from now you might even be grateful for the 'boot' - thus speaks the voice of experience :)
You take care.
Hugs
Corinne
