experiencing life.

This is one of those posts that you write with the browser window hidden from everyone else. especially your boss !
yea..its been a long while since I wrote...but things seem to be getting hectic.

umm... i've joined the gym (again !) .
i dunno what it is with the gym thing, but i never manage to continue without a break.
the last one was for around 3 months...so i'm pretty much back at square 1
:P
So my weekdays involve getting up at 6 (huh? me?!) ...yea, honestly ! .....then going to the office gym at 7... have breakfast in the office canteen at around 9 ( and its MUCH better than the one in the Chennai office !) ....
The body has a wierd tendency...i've seen... losing or gaining weight happens naturally at the exact places you don't want !!!

anyway, I've been trying to do something ..umm...different thesedays.
I have decided that i'm NOT going to keep a TV at my place here. Although it seems like the stupidest decision I , or anyone since the Ice-age,has ever made, I'm going to stick by it.
There's a reason for it too. the way I see it...the idiot box has always made me lazy. Once I sit down to watch star world or anything interesting, I can spend days not moving my a** from the sofa !

I've realized that I want to experience life.
I want to do stuff that I've always wanted to do....or that I've never thought I would ...
Along the same thoughts, I went to a demo dance class this sunday !!....The guy teaches all forms of dance..this month it's gonna be bollywood...next month's western...after that Hip Hop and Salsa are in line...
btw...we danced to 'Aahun Aahun' from Love aajkal (that's the one, no?)

Dance.
Although i'm adept at the drunk-dance-at-weddings, this is one of the things i've wanted to do. Always.
In college a 'friend' and I had decided to join Salsa classes ....but that didn't happen ...due to certain...errrmm...unavoidable reasons...

but enough! I said to myself... I wanted to taste more of LIFE(I'll elaborate the reason for this in another post), and I'm gonna do it.
Perhaps i'll sign up for the dance classes after all .
what say?

PS: I was gonna name this post 'Chance pe Dance' ....but that's kinda overused ;)

bathroom talk.

There's one thing i've always wanted to say to a good looking stranger... "Wasting water's a sin... shower with me !"
siiiiiiiigh .....kab aayega woh din ? ;)

At every point in their lives, people have to judge stuff.... and its not always a bad thing .
I mean of course we need to judge..... is this shoe worth it? Should I have rum with Vodka? will I be able to get home after that? Is the one in black hot or the blue one ? Should I actually put this on the blog? will I need to kill her now? ( ermmmm :P)

So anyhow, I have one major criteria of judging a house or a room...yea now that i've house hunted in both Chennai and Hyderabad, I have an opinion on this.... the one thing that makes a house stand out amidst the cramped up ocean of others is............
ta
tada
tadada
............. a good bathroom !

Yes. washroom/restroom/gusalkhana ( :P )....whatever you want to call it... its something which I cannot compromise on.... not to sound like a snob or anything, but isn't it an amazing feeling when you walk into a spacious,clean,fragrant washroom ? sounds pretty trivial, i know, but it does feel great...or maybe u've just never lived in a hostel ;)

The thing is, when we were deciding on our accomodation in hyderabad , the first thing that influenced my choice was this flat's bathroom.... I mean its HUGE.
Seriously...like more than half the size of the bedroom.... and that's not exactly small either.
Plus, it has a shower that ACTUALLY works ...which isn't a high probablitity when searching for rented places....
Its got pure white tiles...which makes it look even cleaner (and more difficult to maintain)....


All in all, I'm happy with my place here ....although I don't spend all day in there, I still love the ...bathing area.... :D

thought i'd make this a short post...as it is i'm ignoring doing what i'm paid for and instead doing what I love....writing! ...
but I guess everyone does that at times...or probly needs to do so !
and people walking past me are giving me wierd smiles or tut-tut expressions...

PS: Pseudo-exciting,though apt blog post title, isnt it?

new chapter...being me

OK guys....BIG news .... i haven't had time to write.... I've moved to Hyderabad !!
this happened last friday.

Wednesday:
I go to chennai office as usual....check my mail...and it says i've been absorbed into a project and i should contact xyz person and report to hyderabad ...."niice" ,i said to myself...atleast i'd have a couple of days to chill out in chennai and say adieu to the friends i made there....
I called up the concerned person and he asked me to report at 9 AM the next day ... "ermmm...I'm in chennai actually...(how could he not know?)...so i can be there only on friday..hope that's ok "...it was.

Its a funny feeling... to wrap up your life in a few hours and move to another place...that's exactly what i did... boozed bigtime with pals (farewell, right !) ...that was wednesday night...woke up on thursdy morning..packed..cought a flight at 4 in the afternoon.

and here I was...hyderabad...a new city, yet again. Famous for its apparantly amazing 'biryani' ...which I haven't tasted yet...also, I'm a veggie...so the prospects of biryani aren't that exciting anyway..

I've rented a flat with a friend.....my own place ...the first time(chennai was a hostel).... i'm rly psyched about it...i mean, woohoo!! guys, i need suggestions on what all i'll need to make the house a cool place to be.... all i have right now are beddings , a pressure cooker, a stove and some plates ! .....I've been reminiscing about my parent's house in gurgaon....it actually was kinda amazing....lets hope i can make mine a bit as good too :D

More on this new 'hyderabadi' chapter to follow....
