I wouldn’t call it a perfect way to start a new year this time. Nor could I call it the past three years either. Reason – exam time. 😦 Joining engineering has made this season grim for me for the fourth year in a row, and I just can’t stop complaining. Added to the misery this time was that, one subject (VLSI circuits) which was scheduled on 27th of December was postponed to 19th Jan! Reason – Assembly bypolls! 😦 I just cant stop wondering why politics affects us so much when we dont want it to.
This New Year was particularly special (grrr grrr) because, the last paper before the postponed one was on Jan 1st. What did I do on the eve? Sit with Crypto text till 11 and slept off without wishing anyone. I seemed to have answered a few calls in my sleepy state itself and people were wondering if I had celebrated the New Year by getting drunk for the first time in my life. Thankfully, (or not,) my image was too clean for the idea to become a strong rumour.
As usual, I didn’t remember what I wrote in my paper after half an hour from coming out of the exam hall and was oblivious to all the post-exam-discussions. I was too happy that 18 more days were there before I can touch books 😛 .
That apart, I went through a rough patch with WordPress when my account was suspended. I emailed to Support reporting the same and asking for an explanation. To keep calm and stop myself from erupting with frustration, I googled a bit hoping to find an explanation. 20 hours of anxiety later, I got a blank-looking message saying that my account was restored.
The only solace during the exams was the long discussion on my previous post. This was special because, I posted it 5 hours before the exam and it turned out to be pretty good, rather, better than what I expected. It was very good flexing my grey cells to answer the comments in the most ethical manner I could. Probably, the tiredness arising out of the combined attack of exam-blues and hyper mind activity before it (during the preparation phase) kept me off blogging for a considerable time.
Meanwhile, I stumbled across a very good platform for discussing blogging related issues here. I thought it would be something like the same old experiments to focus on bloggers and stuff, but I got the hang of it pretty fast and am enjoying my time there. Since it is pretty new to come, it is easy, educative and fun to speed up your popularity rating. Hope to see as many of you as possible there.
Lastly, I need to clear off an important debt. I owe my body a lot of sleep which I snatched away from it during the exams and the short enjoyment stint thereafter. Time to repay it with interest. I hope to sleep for at least 12 hours for a couple of days so that I’m relieved of the fatigue 😛 .
By the way, a belated New Year greetings to everyone. Hope this new set of 365 days entertains you with 365 types of joys, adventures and good times! 🙂

Happy New Year to u too! all the best for last exams. Do u guys have viva before theory or after?
Happy New year to you too. Some one said, “Knowledge is what remains in your mind, after you finish your examination” 🙂
Wish you the happiest year ahead Su !
Have a lovely new year ahead…. 🙂
Thank you very much for the wishes. 🙂
I am trying to get as much rest as possible without annoying my dad for over sleeping 😛 . The link seems to be erroneous. checked it nevertheless!
Sleep never betrayed me till date. I hope it wont do in the future as well. Btw, How is the weather in Mumbai? I’m coming there on 22nd Jan and dont wanna be frost-bitten. 😛
I dunno if it is fortunate or otherwise, the viva is before the theory itself. 🙄
Well, it appears to be true, but I never gave first preference to knowledge. I’ve always believed in skill. So, my ability is made up by around 50% skill, 35% knowledge, and 15% miscellaneous 😆
Vimal and Hope
Thank you very much. Again. 😛
