A few truths about life by Silverstreak B.E

1. The B.E part looks really lame. It looks lamer alongside my actual name.

2. Blue is a beautiful colour. However, blue curacao is most deceiving. Do not order cocktails for their blue colour. They're almost always not very good!

3. This I learnt from a friend. To avoid shoe bites, rub dry soap on the inner soles of your shoes. It really works. :) Now I'm not scared to wear stilettos!

4. Back rubs are AWESOME. I'm so hiring a personal massuese when I'm older and rich. And also a cook. The latter will be necessary.

5. Sometimes, when you cannot eat before an exam, it DOES NOT mean you are anorexic. Someone needs to tell my mother this.

6. Surrender - Cheap Trick, I think will be my theme song in 10 years.

7. It kind of is now too, my parents are pretty darned cool.

8. Advaita are really really REALLY good!

9. You don't need cleavage to get drinks on the house!

10. Belly button piercings do not hurt much. As in, they're less painful than even injections. And I hate injections too. There's a little blood involved though, as in a teensy amount, and that fucks things for a bit. Otherwise its fine.

11. It DOES get better, and people DO forget about it.

12. Girls DO NOT like it when you go up to them when they're carrying a lot of stuff and you ask them, 'Can you carry all that?' We know you mean well but saying 'Do you want help with that?', is received well. Yep. We're weird, like that.

13. Cracking jokes is an amazing way to break the tension. I know, I do it all the time. My jokes are horrible sometimes, though.

14. Noone cares about what you do, so go ahead and have your fun!

15. Taking notes in class never helped. So don't bother.

16. Thinking is baaaaaaad for health. It is. Really.

Thank me later. :)

Notes to self. And stuff. Read on.

I'd really like to blog about something other than studying and exams and the project. Really. Its unfair how empty and hollow my life is.

*Note - Its not as hollow as James Blunt's though
. Not sooo hollow bab-aayy, not soo hollow*

There's a good chance this is going to end up as a draft.

Fine, its time for a change. Funnily, every time I decided I need a change, I get a new hair do. Unfortunately, I got one just last month and its also 11 p.m. Gaah.

OK, firstly I'm changing my display name. I'm a little bored of Ping. It sounds too hyper (which I am, BTW, and should work on, because I'm starting work soon. Did I say work? Oh my God, I'm oooooold. And going to be working! Hey wait, we're still on changing display name here. Close parentheses.). Thinking, thinking..

I need to stop thinking and STOP WITH THE OVER-ANALYZING! *needing help here* What if he thought that? What if I did this? Usually I'm a don't-give-a-damn kinda person but sometimes, I drive myself crazy. I analyze situations over and over and OVER again for every possible test case. Did I just say test case? Yes, you did. Ignore that, that was the afternoon's exam talking. Anyway, we will work on that bit, yeah? OK. Oh also, on the bit where you have pretend conversations with yourself. OK. And with others. *sheepishly* OK.

*Random question - Did you ever watch The Adventures of Pete and Pete as a kid? My download is nearly complete! Hurray for awesome unsecured wireless connections*

I just decided you also get trivia with this post. Lucky you!

I wanted to go to Bombay in my holidays and get-my-freak-on shopping. But then I remembered, I start work and that involves me wearing only formals 4 days a week. Me so sad, Sandra Oh style.

Sometimes, very rarely, I stop thinking God exists. Then I think about the 25 lives a day He's given me and I start believing again. Its true about the 25 lives. I'm extremely reckless when I cross the road. He saves me every time. My Guardian angel must seriously be working overtime up there. *knocks on wood*

Trivia time - Drew Barrymore. Bisexual. Whoa!

I think we can put in a random picture in this post, yeah?

No I am not drunk.

This was taken in Goa. At Baga. Chocolate Breakfast at Britto's. I think, if you read ~R~'s blog, you might see a similar picture. Sorry about the plagiarism, but my comp crashed and I don't have too many pictures on it now. Except those related to image segmentation. *gags*

Sigh. I miss Goa.

I can't believe I will be getting pay-checks soon. *touchwood, need to get joining date, yet*
I mean, its awesome and all, but it spells responsibility. In CAPS. Woah! Big big word. My brother, whom I don't speak to, already expects an allowance. FROM ME. And expects to move into my room in two months. So either I get the smaller room with NO attached bathroom, and NO double bed, or I move out. Man. I'm getting ultimatums from family members. What the hell!?
I've also decided to get a tattoo with my first salary. Any ideas?

Oh, I'm also going to be nicer to people. And give second chances. You don't care? Well, I don't care about YOU. Go away, now. Hey, I was only joking there! I'm going to be nice, remember?

I still haven't figured out my new name. I have a few ideas though. Help me out.
- Action League Now!
- Calabria.
- Diplo Rhythm.
- Singular Sensation.
- Penelope Pittstop.

Or if you can think of any, that'd be great.

Personally, I like Diplo Rhythm. Its a funky song and awesome to dance too. But then, so's Calabria. And Desi Girl. But that will NOT be my new name.

Trivia time again (yayyy!) - 'Joincidence' is coincidence with a J!

Actually Singular Sensation is re-heeeeaally (extend a little more like Dr. Cox) lame. What was I thinking. Ruled out.

OK, I gotta go now. Get jiggy with studying for Mobile Communications etc. There, I used get-jiggy-with and study in the same sentence. Officially time to sign out. Sigh. The Highs and Lows of one weirded-out 20-something. Go figure.

After 4 years, 48 months, 8 semesters, 40 subjects, 14 labs, 138 internals (yes, I did the Math!), 2 project presentations and 1 seminar, you'd really think it won't be that hard studying for just 4 more measly subjects.

It isn't.

Its impossible.
