DILEMMA:Waste or Taste ????

 I was typing and still didn't know what I was about to post when it suddenly struck  me like all my brainwaves always do (which aren't the brainy ones you may think of, but simple truths which may 
leave you dumbfounded!!) . I have wasted my holidays!!! True, holidays are for fun, to relax and enjoy.That doesn't mean not even looking at the direction where your school books lay, that too when you are in the period when you are promoted from 9th to 10th std!!!!
HALT!HALT! put on the brakes,madam!Why are you getting so scared??What's wrong in spending holidays like holidays are supposed to?? You weren't just sleeping throughout the holidays....True,you didn't touch that 10th std math textbook(yuck) but that doesn't mean you lazed around!!You read more thrillers in one month than sachin tendulkar's total amount of centuries!!Sometimes you helped your grandmother before she could scream and you have been working hard on your blog, so CHILL! You haven't committed a crime, YET. This was the other part of me.
Welcome everybody! I am popularly known as 'SEMI' among my friends and although I didn't name myself that I knew that it was the perfect word for me.I like most people am two inside and somewhere in the middle of the two paragraphs outside!!!Particularly in this post I am going to confuse myself in the dilemma : did I UTILIZE my holidays or not?? WAIT! why the hell should we UTILIZE an holiday?? did I ENJOY my holidays or not?See I confused it again!!
Coming back to the point, however I justify my loafing around, it is WRONG! All my classmates (well not all) have gone for math and various other tuitions and have finished the syllabus for the next year and  4 guys (no nerds!) have even joined the great IIT coaching and have finished their 11th portions. I accept with a sane mind that I couldn't have finished everything like them but should have at least revised  the completed portions.
Dude! cut the crap! Once an idiot no one measures the scale of foolishness! Similarly once I have decided to study  why should I count the pages?! OK. Coming to my point, what do I gain by studying all the chapters the teachers are going to cover?!The poor teachers surely wont like us shouting all the answers at her and won't the classes become even more boring?The element of surprise and interest is the only way classes become interesting!
STOP! How much more ignorant can I get??! I am grown up now, even if my other part doesn't think like that the teacher would.I am not coming to tell that mugging before the teacher is right but, dude! there is something called preparation!!In 10th std the teachers just don't have the time to go deep enough and they leave it to us to explore further.....so I have indeed wasted 2 months of my life reading novels and on the net...:-(
GET A LIFE! all I am doing is getting sad with myself......It is NOT a waste of time.The books I have read are all courtroom novels and blogging as improved my writing skills and typing speed!! What is wrong in reading courtroom novels as I am improving my chance of becoming a lawyer!Nothing is a waste of time unless Aimed to achieve nothing!OK my mood is getting worse as I getting more philosophical........I have learnt to cook or at least eat well with my aunt's help and I have constantly stayed in touch with my FRIENDS which makes all the time worthwhile! I have visited crores of temples and have developed my Hindi watching Bollywood films and doing some things only I can do during holidays!

POINTS taken:
  • I Didn't study sufficiently enough to satisfy myself.....
  • I have connected with my friends
  • I have blogged! :-)
  • Courtroom novels aren't that bad (but surely I am not fancying that it would help me better as it will make reality look very bad ;-) ) 
  • I did waste my time but not my taste
  • I did help my grandmother! (sometimes only.....)
It is accepted now that I could have touched my books so I will surely do it ( I have a week more, which is sufficient enough) but that doesn't undermine the fact that enjoying your holidays your natural way is never BAD!! Waste is never the word appropriate to use on your holidays but taste shouldn't be the only factor to loaf around!!Equating it by studying more than your level in the last week isn't such a bad option as it makes tyou carry fresh memories of studies and evergreen memories of FUN!!!!

ek gaon mein ek kisan raghu thatha! :P

It's been a week in Pune already!! :O
and believe it or not  - I have fallen in love with this city! <3
or maybe it is just another one of my defense mechanisms , protecting me from shocks. Whatever this is , it has aroused me enough, to write a post! So let me finish this before reality sinks in .
( Side note :

  Defense mechanisms are pretty intriguing . Do you know that I haven't cried a single tear drop yet? My friends think it is some kind of sacrilegious blasphemy from my  part. But hey! If pessimists argue that I have effectively ended one life , I argue back that I have just started a new one :) I do miss chennai . However , I am not going to go gaga over it. Okay I just did . )
I haven't had much chance to discover the city in its entirety yet. But , from whatever I have seen - it is fresh , green , pleasant and mindnumbingly beautiful :')

So here it is . The elusive list of things I have noticed about Pune and my new life in general :

1) I was never a nat…

The Girl who cried wolf

The Girl who cried wolf
Splendid Sir Do you know the girl who cried wolf? Of course you do Do you believe her torrid tales of The Big Bad wolves Who feast on her soul every day? Probably you do. We do know that one bad animal doesn’t define a species Do you? #Notallwolves We get it sir Can we get on with it?
Your fragile ego Calls her a Nazi And disses her into a ditch Of silent suffering Like the good old days When girls were good Like little red riding hood
You forgot the moral of the story didn’t you?

Hi readers! Thanks for sticking around even when I don't write for months. I was having a writer's block of sorts and generally a rough phase in my life. The poem I'm publishing below is a very personal one and took a great deal of bravery from my side to be even posted. Many friends dissuaded me from sharing this particular chapter of my life. I have written on what it is like, to feel like a failure even when you know that you aren't one. It might seem like a small problem to most of you but I assure you that it has taken its toll on my life. However , I've recovered enough to talk about it now and share it with others , for I know that I'm not alone and want others to not feel alone too. This post does not intend to be negative , it just captures one of the darker phases of my life. There is always light at the end of the tunnel , I just chose to project the darkness this time. Thank you.
