Bubbling Up

I haven't really felt like blogging lately. I've been commenting on other peoples' blogs but when it comes to posting on my own, I haven't been in the mood.

And even now as I type this post out, I don't really know what I'm going to be writing about. So please bear with me.

First of all, I'm overjoyed that Spain won. The team I supported right from the beginning along with Portugal and Italy won. It was a brilliant victory and well-deserved. And I couldn't be happier if I was in the team myself. I love their style of play. Attacking, flowing football with sharp passing. A sight for sore eyes especially compared to the German style of brute strength. Every game they played was a pleasure to watch. And the best part is that the team who didn't lose a single game throughout the tournament won. And I love Iker Casillas, David Villa, Cesc Fabregas, Fernando Torres and Xabi Alonso. *Sigh*.

And Spain were the clear winners. Despite what some people seem to think. *Cough*Mynie*Cough*

I'm quite sad now that Euro 2008 is over. No flaming arguments about which team will win. No constantly changing statuses on facebook depending on the outcome of games. There's not much to look forward to. And after the pace of football, cricket doesn't hold the same thrill it once did. And while there is tennis, which I love very much, it's a whole other thing to watch a team sport.

On another note, I got my results finally. And I got a first class. But that's not what this is about. It's an odd feeling to know that I am now officially a graduate. But where do I go next? I'm caught between whether I should work for a year or study further. Any ideas?

And before I forget, I've started driving classes. Now this may not seem like a big deal, but it is to me and being behind the steering wheel is a total power trip.

Ok that's it, I'm done.

Hey Congratulations!!! So what are your plans for the future besides buying a car :) I think you should study further....just my 2 cents.

@ Homecooked : Where have you been? Seems like it's been forever since I've seen a comment or post from you.

I am planning on studying futher. I'm just not sure whether I should do it right now or work for a year and then study.

You see my dilemma?

Hey! Me too so damn happy that Spain won! I agree cricket doesn't hold that old craze but i liked the IPL thing. Tennis is my all time fav. but nothing to gear up with Euro..

And as far as your career dilemma goes, i have after a good survey realized that one needs to study as long as she can :)
*happy driving*

Remembering Avanti

Day before yesterday, on the 8th of November 2008, Avanti Desai would have turned 21. Instead 15 days before her birthday, as she hurried home to celebrate her grandmother's birthday, Avanti met with a train accident at Jogeshwari station.

Just like that. Gone from our lives forever. Leaving behind a huge void and the world a lot more gloomier.

And when I got the call first thing in the morning, I couldn't believe it. I thought it was a cruel sadistic joke, but as the calls kept coming in, I realised it was true. Even at the cemetary,, it still hadn't sunk in that Avanti was no longer here. The worst moment though was watching her disappear into the crematorium, it was horrible and I couldn't believe we were leaving her there, and through the next couple of hours all I could think of was of her going up in smoke while we stood there in the bright sunshine.

It seemed incomprehensible at first, to think of Avanti as dead, to talk about her in the past tense, to get used…

The Roaring Twenties

So here I am on the eve of my 30th birthday, my very last day of being 29, just about 4 hours left of being a twenty-something.

A couple of years ago, I remember snidely chuckling away to myself, when a favourite blogger of mine turned 30, believing that it was so far away, it could never touch me. I'm regretting that now.

And to be honest, I thought I would be okay, I really honestly truly believed that I would be greeting this new decade with a casual insouciance and indifference that would normally be characteristic for me, but I'm not. I'm terrified of how quickly my twenties have zoomed by and how little I've accomplished and perhaps that is what is upsetting me.

On the cusp of another decade on this planet, well, I feel like a bit of a failure. No, scratch that, I feel majorly like a failure. I'm drowning in self-pity and anguish at wasted opportunities, at thrown-away chances, at my inherent laziness and procrastination, at my never-ending ability to put of…

Lady of the Cake

I've been wanting to blog about my recent interest in baking for a while, well if you can call three years recent, that is. But I've always wanted to talk about the joy that baking brings me and how much I enjoy it. The calories, not so much.

By nature, I am a rather random person. I don't function very well when neatness and precision is necessary. I like to think of myself as a big-picture person. Not for me the analysing of every detail and the nitpicking and the perfectionism. But it is precisely this side of me that baking, the exacting science that it is, challenges and I actually revel in it. There's something about creaming exactly 100 gms of butter with 50 grams of sugar and mixing in 300 gms of flour. Measuring, measuring, measuring, beating, whipping to create a cake that is so much more than the sum of its disparate parts. The exacting nature of baking allows me to put my vagaries aside and focus with a 100% on the job at hand that pleases me. For someone …
