Summer summarized

11Aug06
As they say everything looks beautiful in retrospection and summer is no exception. After a summer break of three months its time to go back to school again.

A nostalgia creeps into me when anything comes to an end – a good movie, a book, a trip and this summer for sure. This was my first summer break in US and probably will be the only one. The idea of being lazy around for three months sounded much more than tempting before it started. Movies were the first option, hired DVDs from an adjacent video store made the perfect appetisers before our main course summer. Then came blogging, I started my own blog to vent my ideas. Then when the travel bug itched we went to Grandcanyon and my long awaited destination – NewYork.

A lull followed after NewYork when life seemed miserable and eternal and eternally miserable. This was the time when i started blogging seriously and i got some great visitors who affected me to an extent that life will never be the same again. Life seemed beautiful and meaningful again. The books started calling me and i started reading books which i wanted to read from a long time, thanks to our very comprehensive library and my blogger friends who gave me some good books to read. In the mean time my driving classes kept going and im still trying to master it. While the nostalgia exists as the summer is coming to an end, there is yet another start to come, yet another semester to come, not just another summer.

    i’m talking about the F**K post, btw.

    well, I guess going back to school will keep you busy. If we don’t hear much from you we’ll know you are hitting the books.
