So much has happened since the last time I came here. First job, away from home, 2 cities... new friends, more acquaintances, a broken down keypad of a laptop (to which I am still hanging with a USB powered silly flexible keyboard) a new club and ah, badminton..! I regret not a single moment..
Tech Tip: flexible keyboards suck. Period.
Infosys Mysore as one of the most beautiful campuses anywhere in the world, made everything seem just like an extended college life. Even with the lack of a laptop and my 1TB HDD [ I can never stop boasting about it, can I? ;) ] I survived excellently!
Pune hasn't seemed like 'Pune' to me for a single day so far. That probably takes better and more compatible friends. But the feeling of being here in Pune as a so-called IT professional trumps almost everything. Even more wonderful are some of the people I have met, esp as a part of Toastmasters.. naam to suna hi hoga...
In my experience, I have always needed something on the sidelines to keep me going.. In college it was organizing and participating in workshops and here I believe, Infosys Toastmasters Club is that!
I also got to meet two of the blogger friends.. Ankita Agrawal and Anurag Chatterjee, both fellow Infoscions. (On this sorry piece of rubber of a keypad it is too much trouble to link you two :P so just come over and announce yourselves, both of you... )
Even with a schedule that leaves little time for anything extra, the people who have kept me going the most are my friends who are not in the vicinity.. Thank smartphones! If I hadn't started blogging, I would've never met all these people who make life simpler each day, or had people to discuss everything ranging from 'How I hate Edward Cullen' to the latest books to how news-deprived I am getting each day..
And you'd think after 2 and a half months of surviving alone with flatmates, I'd have learned to take care and switch off the gas at the right time. Unfortunately, I have burnt, yes burnt milk as I write this!
What comes next.. is cleaning. *groan* and an abrupt Au Revoir.
