So the transition period to college has begun. But before I tell you about that, here are some updates:
  • Saw 'Darwaaza Band Rakho' with Mom n Dad at Waves. Good comedy movie, except that it lacked humor.
  • Dad pointed out an article in a magazine which had some of the letters Einstein wrote to his son. In one, Einstein had mentioned the importance of brushing your teeth twice a day. It appears that fathertellingsontobrushtwicedaily is a very old and common phenomenon.
  • I've been having more and more instances of phonesia: you know, when you call someone and forget who you called, the moment they pick-up. It's so embarrassing.
  • Rita aunty gifted me a very sexy watch as a present before I go. It makes my old Timex Flix look like a complete joke.
  • I turn on the T.V. and I see a guy with a round face, beard and cap, singing in a high pitch. Then I change the channel and I see him dancing with Akshaye Khanna and Katrina Kaif. I change channels again, and there he is with a different song but same tune. Yes, I am truly fed up with Himesh Reshammiya and his all-sound-alike songs.
Anyways, I have begun shopping for clothes and stuff to take to Duke. I hate shopping. Really. It's sooo tiring and pointless. I would have ordered everything online if only I could some how try out the sizes sitting at home. How can girls love shopping?
I have already had my fair share of problems in my 'transition phase'. Have still not received the book "My Sister's Keepers" which is part of this year's summer reading program. A discussion will be held on the book, among the freshmen, when we arrive. For some reason, the book seems to have gone 'out of stock' simultaneously from all the bookstores in Delhi and NCR.
Also, I still don't know who my roommate is, which is really important so that we can get in touch and decide who will bring what appliance.

So here I am, bored and hoping to get things sorted out soon.

Haven't updated my blog in a while, cause there just hasn't been to much to say. See, this is the point where a boring life starts losing its charm. Geez, in 12th I would have killed for some free time. We would wait so desperately for vacations, and when vacations would come, there would always be stuff lagging over from school that we had to complete. And now? Now, I'm just desperate for college to start. The fact that these vacations were extremely long probably just contributed to the boredom: in India the academic year ends early and starts early; in America, they end late and start late. Since I'm going from India to America, my vacation this year started earlier (I also didn't have to give all the engineering competition exams like my classmates) and will end late. And I haven't really done anything productive since the end of March apart from publishing the school's fat annual magazine and watching movies that I missed out upon over the past two years.

Btw, I saw 'Golmaal' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' yesterday. And Pirates of the Caribbean sucked big time. Whenever I take Mom n Dad for some English movie, the movie turns out to be really pathetic. And now they either think I have really bad taste or that English movies are horrible by nature :P . I am also updating my phone directory before I leave. That basically means calling everybody up (everybody!) and asking them things like their postal address, email ids, messenger ids, Birthday, etc. So if you know me, and I still haven't called you, please email me these details at ankit.webmaster@gmail.com .

By now you're probably wondering why I told you not to read this posting... I mean, its just a stupid, not-at-all-interesting waste of time! I agree and that's why I told you not to read it dumbo.
