The Month That Was..... April '12



My favourite month of the year, my birthday month. And how eventful it was! 
First, I spent my birthday at some godforsaken place where I thought NOTHING would happen, at least nothing special anyway. How wrong was I? I got treated to a full-blown sadya with the sweetest family ever. And I got to cut the cake at 12 with BOTH my favourite people in attendance. Shows that if people actually care, they’ll manage to make it special for you, regardless of where you are.

I had been ‘researching’ for God-knows-how-long and talking about my thesis to everyone who will listen and their dog. That, finally, has been R.I.P’ed (Rested In Pieces), never to be revived or referred to again. It was disappointing, though, when my thesis guide of a year and a half refused to even acknowledge the effort. Maybe it was that bad? Ah well.

Farewell happened. Three months of picking the perfect saree, the perfect accessories, the perfect shoes and the perfect whatnot (us females are really obsessed with appearances, aren’t we?) ended in one evening of not-so-much nostalgia. Why? Because I don’t think what ‘farewell’ meant had had really sunken in then.
5.47 GB of photos happened, though. Special mention must be made of a certain special someone who won the Mr. Showstopper Award. Cheers, Nanda! :)

And then, predictably, I passed out of college. Seems like such a huge deal but I won’t bore you with the details. The surprise, the missing, the looking back, the realisation that it’s all over and it will never be the same again, the tears….  All of it that we have all felt at some point. One thing that really got to me was that I was giving up my second home, the place I could escape to pretend I have not a care in the wolrd, where I can cuss like a sailor and be as perverted-minded as I wanted to be and no one would care for we were all kindred spirits. That was hard.

Even harder was realising that my relationship would never be the same. I was leaving the place that had brought us together. I don’t know what the future holds for us but this place would always hold the happiest memories for both of us. But maybe, like he says, I speak too soon for the best is yet to come?

Blogging didn’t happen. Not even a little bit. And I have become that blogger who doesn’t reply to comments and mails and guest post requests. Yes, I really didn’t have the time but no, it was entirely not intentional :’(

And most importantly, I’m out on the job market (prospective employer bloggers, you hear?:P). God knows, what this path that I have chosen holds for me and where but I feel ready for the change. In fact, I want the change.

May, how you doin’?  

P.S: I have developed an aversion to the question, what next. So kindly refrain from asking :P

  1. So, what's next? :P [Oppositional me cannot refrain from doing something when someone says not to!]

    Jokes aside, glad you are done with college. Was it undergrad or postgrad? Thesis makes me think postgrad. Good luck with the next phase in life! And hopefully this phase will involve more regular blogging!

  3. Well good luck finding a job for a start, and congratulations on passing :) A belated happy birthday as well. April for me was a mixture of highs and lows, like every month, but it seemed to be especially low. May should be better though. I hope. The truth is that better things can come now even if you're out of college. Me and my best friend are closer now than we ever were when in school. It can happen to anyone. As long as the effort is made.

  4. "5.47 GB of photos happened, though." I couldn't stop laughing as I had gone through the same days two years back... In between, you'd have also mentioned about the last gate pass u got ;)
    Good Post... And the template looks simple too :)

  15. Oh boy! The moment you said you graduated, I actually blurted out The-Question-I-Shouldn't-Have-Asked, and that too on the photo. :|

    And though I am still two years away from graduating myself, I'll still show the audacity to tell you, it'll be fine. :)
