Greetings fellow bloggers....
Recently I have been tapped by the cells of some ignored corner of my brain and made me get into "THE" (yes, I'm using the cliched quote sign with my fingers) blogosphere. I felt the urge to write not just to vent out my anger or cherish my daily occurrences, but to make myself feel better that I'm writing the shit out!
No kidding, I can already feel it!
OK, so sitting in my cubicle, all alone, ignoring the tasks for the day, I wanted to start off my first blog as an ode to the toughest riddle and the meanest b**ch of all. LIFE!
In my 22 years of living, or rather 14 years ignoring the first 8 years which were unmistakably the easiest years of my life, I have been asking this question " WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE LIKE THIS?", which in vain, found no answers for. Sometimes I'd like to think that, the answer might be worse than the question.
Now, that's another story. It being my favorite topic, m gonna write a lot more.
What m more thrilled is to write bout the present and about the godforsaken Master's life! Oh yes.. I had a tough time accepting it. MS is just not drunken chicks or easy grades! Its a real pain in the ass!

Not so many days ago, sitting in the shaky Delta Airliner, descendin down to the "glorious" US i thought, the beautiful AZ night sky, millions of glowing yellow lights, with a blank mind. Still digesting the fact that I had to leave my family and my twin, my mind racing with thoughts and volley of unanswered questions, there was an undeniable sense of elevation that I came to the richest country in the world. FREEDOM, I thought!
I felt the sweat on my forehead cool off by the dry AZ breeze when I stood on the airplane stairs. I was staring out into a strange world, scared as HELL!
To cut the long story short, after I got myself settled in the new place, it took me a little time to realize that I'm walkin on a steep road with slippery shoes. Every conversation I made, every person I met, every sin I committed, every place I've been to, every paper of the never-ending assignments I wrote, and every fcukin moment in this Master's life, I found a common thing. I still got something to worry about!
Today, I sit here and still ask myself that question and the best answer I get is "Coz, this is life". I do not believe in imaginary beings like GOD as what believers call, to answer this, but myself. Satisfied with the answer and proud of the surprising attribute of mine to keep smiling throughout the struggle, I would simply like to share my experiences and day to day anecdotes or FML style incidents to all of you through this media.

Say HELLO to America my friends! :D

Feels GOOD to be here...

Good start... Welcome to the blogosphere :)
And life in the US is always about mixed feelings :) ... you feel good about a few things even though there are a lot more to worry about!
But at the end of the day (or year) you can be proud that you lasted through that!!! :)
