"Little Space" - I am 1 month old

its 30th October today, time flyin (day light saving ends today, one more hour to write or sleep).. and its been a month now since i started this blog, I am one month old now *cheers* and I am totally addicted to it somehow, if i don't see it once a day, my day is incomplete ;-).. also reading some random blogs too *g*; its fun (when you hav time offcourse)

But i really feel a lot better (ok talkin to claudi is even better than this) when i write something on it, feels like i have to take care of someone (atleast virtually) and tell IT what i felt like... Sometimes it gets really lonely (i know i hav lots of good n caring friends) but still sometimes, and during that it helps too,... atleast it seems like this to me after this month

Since then, i blogged some random thoughts of mine to you all, and have this stat counter and just wanna share the summary of it :-) (i know i am getting crazy with it).. anyhow thanks for reading it, if someone does :-))...
Peace n Love for all

delhi shook

Its only a few days ahead of the upcoming, one of the most important and celebrated, festival in India called Diwali or Deepavali or Row of lights or Festival of Lights. And the weekend was buzzing, with people doing shopping, enjoying the festivities, meeting friends and relatives..

Today in the evening, a series bomb explosions shook New Delhi, and lot of people died and more injured. The explosions took place in some of the busiest shopping areas of Delhi where "common" people doing their shopping for the season, one of explosion was near to my college where I did my bachelors studies.

A lot of people wait for this time of year to do their shopping and enjoy the time, but with these explosions the spirit of the people have gone down, its really a blow to the spirit of the festival season. I was pretty sad after hearing the news, as I have seen and been at those places and after the explosions, it must be terrifying.

I was also bit panicked to hear about it as my family n friends are there and I frantically tried to call people directly from my cell phone, and for half an hour no cellphone of my brother (he has 2 of them); family friends, friends; nothing connected and no-one picked up home phone too. Tried several time, and finally it connected and I was relieved to hear all safe message from them.

Blessed be everyone

What a f$#%&*# day!!

I am pretty upset today by myself; I really wanted to go and take the lecture at uni today, haven't been last 2 times also, BUT schize, its very bad on my part. Even though it takes me 1 hr and 15-20 minutes to reach my university, from my room and I shud leave home around 7:15 AM, means getting up at 6:45 AM, and worst of all I have to change transportation 4 times, first from my home, take a strasse-Bahn (street train or tram), to next stop, from there a bus to underground train station, take U-train to Garching and then take another bus to finally reach university. But STILL still I shud have gone, I am not gonna miss it next week, and its only twice a week (tuesday and thursday); I HAVE TO GO (ok next tuesday is holiday); I HAVE TO GO (even if I sleep at 2 AM or don't sleep at all or sleep early; No more excuses)

And since i didn't make to uni, the day was almost wasted, didn't do anything, ok read some for exam but otherwise i am very :-|

What else, its not GONNA HAPPEN anymore...

Yesterday, was nice, went to work early, worked and in evening met Claudi for food and drinks and talked about everything, its always nice to meet you claudi :-); but i know i told you i would def. go for lecture, but it didn't worked out, I am sorry :-)

thanks for reading me :-@

Sunday evening rain is falling - 2

Before reading this - read "Sunday evening rain is falling" post :-)

Actually this weekend (starting friday evening), i felt really "stupid" of myself; everything which was happening was making me feel that, its difficult to explain the whole thing, but i felt that!!

The weekend turned "a bit" interesting due to Grace, otherwise most people are not in Munich and those who are are busy,

We (me n grace and some siemens friends of hers) went to play Billards or Pool on friday evening, i don't know the difference between the two, even though i hit some good shots as per my standards in the 3 games we played, but it was still "stupid", it was funny also some sense ;-) but i am really bad at it, but i never played it seriously too; i wanna go bowling next time, grace???????

Oh, i must tell this, saturday weather, awesome, just awesome: warm, sunny, no wind, beautiful tree color of fall. Its diffcult to get this in Munich (as its raining now ;-|)
But our Saturday plans went downhill as stefan backed out (no vodka), so spent the evening chatting on skype (didn't even feel like studying) with ... guess who?? grace and due to some influence from karl, we decided to go and see Double Feature. First time i saw movie after coming back, that too 2 in a row, ;-) (and second time in Munich in a theater)

Movie Review (worth reading ;-)) :
So the first movie was, The Flight Plan, I saw the trailors for it in US (did I tell you, i love watching trailors before the movie starts in the theater); so finally I watched. The movie starts pretty nicely with all the suspense n thrill. Jodie Foster is good. Even though in some reviews, they said the ending was not good, but we liked it. I mean it was not a supernatural thriller movie so the ending was quite good even though it had some loop holes in the sense that the base of the whole conspiracy was not very clear.. not going in too details as some of you might not have seen it yet, but if you have some time to spare, watch it.

Ok, the second movie, before grace told me about the double feature thing, i never heard about this movie before and I just had a brief look at imdb for it, Rating 7.5. Its called Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,

staring Robert Downey Jr., Val Kilmer and Michelle Monaghan. This movie is "...awfully entertaining..."; The one liners; hard-boiled dialogue and drop dead attitute is totally hilarious. Its witty & smartly written comedy. I can remember one where Val kilmer tell Downey jr. "Sleep bad and if any problem, hesitate to call me" and jr. tries to explain the grammar about bad, (badly instead of bad). I could totally relate to Downey Jr. role of being "stupid" in the whole movie ;-).. But the movie is worth seeing, ok the plot is a bit weak, but don't follow the plot, its clear by the end, just go along the ride, you will def. like it and there are lots n lots of funny scenes. I totally RECOMMEND it, Great Film and Great Performance and if someone still doens't like it, i wud like to know why??

Enjoy the movies!!

So that was it, "stupid" but nice weekend :-)

Till next time, enjoy.. I shud study for toefl now, take care evryone

Sunday evening rain is falling

it's been long time (is it), don't know if anyone is reading it but still, anyway so here is some review of my week's weak life,
(in short, people who don't wanna read more) oktoberfest is over, no more beer drinking (no vodka either), munich is normal, no free- time, university started, work too, played billards, watched movies....

So the week started pretty nicely, i started my job at siemens and first day at work was pretty easy going, some paper work, no PC to work, enjoyed the big room with a huge window which is shared with 2 more people, but i feel a bit less concentrated, I think i will get used to it soon, Overall it was a good :-)

Finally I woke up at 7 AM in morning (yes i did), for my lecture at the university, it starts at 8:30 AM and it takes me more than 1 hour to reach there, it was a bit strange feeling after being to university after a year again. But the lecturer, she, is nice, young, soft spoken etc. etc.

So the weekdays went quite well with work and lectures and keeping me busy since I am came back, I happy about it :-) and looking for earbuds for my shuffle (travelling by U-bahn, nice to hear some music) but cudn't find any cheap n good ones.

Wiesn - 7: Final Prost

Ok, its been more than 10 days since oktoberfest finished, & i don't feel like putting more news on it, so this is the final one for Wiesn 2005 until next year!! Till then keep rocking!!

Prost, Prost, Prost

or as bavarians say: Oas, Zwoa, Gsuffffaaaaa

This one is for Zac

okay, just because I heard 'Hotel California', I had to write this:
So we (me, grace, brad & raj) went to an Irish Pub called Shemrock today and as grace was sippin her "sort of beer" drink, the live band at the Pub started playing and the first song was 'Hotel California' and I couldn't stop thinking about our jammin nights in Princeton and the 'Hotel California' by Zac. Zac version is still my fav :-) but the thing i want to mention here is that the band had only 2 persons and she (yes she, sometimes looks can be deceiving) did the final part for the song on a Violin (solo), which was pretty cooool...

Looking forward to hear 'Hotel California' by zac in near future!!

I am feeling nice today

Since last few weeks, i was bit depressed and not really happy (really, even though you saw some nice funny crazy pics from Oktoberfest, but still from within i was not so in party mood) as i didn't had work, semester hadn't started, which course to take, what next, no apartment, some other small stuff;

But I am feeling better today, as I got my werkstudent (student job) in the department of my choice at Siemens CT, and also from next week my semester (last sem) is starting and I'm looking forward to my course in Mathematical Models in Biology, I might take some other class too in data mining or related. Ah one thing which i haven' started yet is writing my Master Thesis, will start sooooooon; I have a meeting with my Prof. next week. Lot of things to do next week. Also I finally bought my books for GRE n Toefl and started preparation too :-)

Now I feel more relaxed due to work, also my bank account would be in much happier state and I feel like doing things in best way possible; and get in the working routine..

Just wanna share some happy moments too

Happiness for All my near and dear ones :-) :-)
