I found it... I found it... \:D/

Hmm.... I went down the nostalgic path.... thanks to Chriz and Aseem who asked for that 'cute bachhon waala article' (For the uninitiated, read this first, my taggy (did I just say 'Taggie'??? I'll have to check my temperature!!!) by Ste.)

Anyway, feeling thoda normal... I fished out the school magazine amongst my entire book collection, and finally found it! Yay! And then, when I was just surfing through the articles people had written back in 1995... I felt... like, soooo damn nostalgic! As in, I knew very few of these people personally... I was in KG II, and they were like, BIG people! :P But I almost laughed on reading the headings of the articles... they were on how sports infrastructure needs development... on how technology changes so rapidly... on how someone spent a day at home ala Home Alone... I mean, some things Never change!!!

But coming back to where I started from, no not the madness streak :P but to my article... I still remember I had written this for an exam or an excercise or something... and then my teacher asked me to copy it for the magazine... The topic was 10 lines about me... as in 'Myself', and I am uploading the pics...

This was the Declaration at the beginning of the magazine... the tiny tots that is, us, were never featured in the magazine before this... It reads...

In Mother's Pet Kindergarten section of the magazine, to retain the originality, the creative compositions of the tinytots have not been corrected, nor spellings checked. The aspect to be appreciated should be their inherent talent and literary endeavour!

How cool is that?

And what I wrote...


It reads...

My name is Akansha. I study in Mother's Pet School. I am pretty and smart. [See I was a narcissist even then!! ;) ] I am five years old. My birthday is on 24th November. My favourite colours are pink and yellow. I live in Nagpur. I have one brother and no sister. My favourite flower is a pink rose. My best friend is Sakshi.

I don't remember who did those drawings but... whether it was me or someone else, I sincerely don't remember...

But enough of nostalgia, I also have something to crib about... all memories around me seem to be getting FULL!!!

My phone- None (doesn't have any... except for contacts :D )
My ipod- FULL... 4 GB...625 songs and 20 odd photos...
My Lappy- 138 GB of total 140GB is FULL.... I can't d/l anything... and I have SIX torrents lined up, and I don't have ONE good movie to watch!!! hmphf!!! yeah yeah portable hard drive is an option... but you have to GO and buy it!!!
Mine- Trying to cram... but it keeps falling off! 

AND courtesy, my Beep Beep BEEP  University, ONE exam has been postponed by a month... I have already been giving exams the entire March... now April and NOW half the May too... arrgghh!!!!

Huh!

AND I have been dubbed as the diplomatic seedhi saadhi gal!!! Sigh! I told my mom I should've been allowed to spoil myself... :-(

On the personal front...

It's raining exams... and stress and tension, coz I don't know anything in atleast two of the subjects [out of total five... :(  ]

But this post is not about the exams, this post is about...

1. Yays! I just got interviewed... by Ghazala Khan from The Pakistan Spectator. Check out the interview here.But don't forget to come back...

There's more good news!

2. I just joined a budd(y)ing team of people to start a new hang-out place...  23something
This place is all about... nah... check it out yourself... go ahead! Although this thing is still in the Beta version as in all of us authors, [I am an editor... supposedly ;) ] I am sure we are going to go great guns!!!

So, as you can see, I have completely prepared myself to screw up the exams... :D
