This Is Life.....................

People tell me that i am talkative and ask me to give even them a chance to speak

People tell me not to laugh loudly....in case our lecturer finds out which gang was laughing

People tell me to type slowly while chatting....so that i can avoid the spelling mistakes and convey what i want

People tell me not to remind the teacher what exercise we did the previous class so that they take it again and all in all...we get a free hour

People tell me not to ask too many doubts....coz if you do....from the next class...the teacher always has an eye on you...wanting to clear more doubts( from me....:)

And this my friend...is life.......what do u say?

College....finally........

After a long wait....finally coll has started.....luckily for me the bus stop is just a 3 min walk from home.... and after about 10 minutes.....i got into the bus....to prevent ragging the girls were asked to sit towards the end of the bus.....n the boys at the front....n every time the bus went over a speed breaker....we were moving in harmony with it....and after about an hours drive...we reached coll.....n then our class ccoordinator gave us an overview of the rules and regulations of the coll...n then after 2 more hours.. ...lunch......food was not bad....n then 4 hours we had....after that we went and boarded the bus....and after about an hour n half i was home.....along with ma sis........the college was good.....the environment and the atmosphere was very friendly and the staff were too good.....new faces and new friends....i just cant wait to be a part of it.....while returning home in the bus.... i was unable to sleep ...so i was just wondering.....how long it would take for me to adapt to this new beginning.....how interesting will this journey be( not the bus!)...and what will i be after 4 years.......i was thinking of all this....but since my stop had come i had to get down n stop thinking of all these and concentrate and cross the road............

Newton's extra laws..........

(taken from a magazine)

Law of result
When you try to prove to someone that a machine won’t work….it will!

Law of the workshop
Any tool when dropped will roll to the least accessible corner

Happiness personified…..........yea that’s me!!!

Woooooooooohoooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m in the seventh heaven….wanna know the reason …..I’ve got the course I desired….electronics and communications engineering in the college that was my top priority ….I’m glad that God has answered all ma prayers…..and yea….. glad also ..at just the prospect of going to a college…..that’s true definitely …after 4 months of idleness….anything that crops up…would be exciting……n that too…from a school to college….a different world…..as someone said…”waiting to spread my wings and fly …beyond the horizon”…
Thank u swa…..my dear sis for your iron-willed support…
Thank u mom n dad….for being with me through thick and thin.....

Money.. money ... everywhere... not a cent to spend???

What! Your parents don’t give you enough pocket money? “is the first thing some one asks when one says that he does not have enough money to come for some one’s treat. I feel that it is advisable to give children a meagre sum when they are young and gradually increase it as they grow old so that they learn the value of money right from the start. Its no good teaching a spoilt-brat the importance of it after he comes to know that his parents can afford every need of his and has a never ending source of money

Ooty welcomes you!



It was amazing!!! It really was!!!..I’d been to Ooty years back…when I was around 4 or 5….so one can imagine how well I would know ooty. This trip was what you would call a family trip….not 4 or 6 people…..14 of us went there and enjoyed and had great fun…coz these days its hardly possible to gear up people…and make sure all of them are there together for 3 days just to have fun and relax..


We stayed at Love Dale ...The first day we went to Dodabetta...the highest point in South India….it was cool…and I really mean it….the mist was amidst us and all of us were kinda shivering in our wind-shielders and shawls….after some hot-hot snacks there we left for the botanical gardens…..man! What a variety! Colours n colours of so-many varieties of plants n flowers….it was really good…..
The next day we went to the lake….first we went on the motor boat. Then a few of us went rowing…..the silence there in the middle of the lake was something really admirable ….then we went to the tora-tora n then the dashing cars……then we went to the thread garden…..tis just a garden with the only exception that the flowers were not real…the flowers were first shaped with canvas and then wound by threads….it was not just one plant …but ..as far as I can remember some…hundreds of them…our next visit was to the wax museum…..statues of Gandhi, Abdul Kalam,Manmohan Singh, Vivekananda , Sankaracharya , Vishveshveraya , Veerappan,Mother Theresa, Jesus,Shivaji….the statues were very very realistic……in fact there was a newspaper cutting there in which our president Abdul Kalam had come there and posed with his own wax-carved statue …
On the whole the trip as very good…..it was a sort of get together too!

Results..

"Ash...did u see the paper today?"..my mom asked me from the balcony thinking i had already woken up
" what....is it ma?" I asked her lethargically.....
"your 12th exam results will be declared by tomorrow.."
"really?" i replied struggling to sit in the bed.
" and your uncle said that he will be able to get ur results by today evening.."
"WHAT?" I Exclamied .
"yeah...so better start praying " she said


I was beginning to feel nervous..i knew i hadnt done my papers very well and i had spent two months of holidays without giving it a thought..but now ..all of a sudden ..i wondered if everything was going to be fine..but my instinct told me it was never going to be fine..so on sunday..i was feeling very nauseous n i used to jump everytime the phone rang...thinking it was my uncle on the line..giving me my marks...the whole day was spoilt till i got a call in the evening from my uncle telling that he would get me the results the next day at around 10.oo am ...then i felt better ..as though i had a nice big chocolate......anyways..i'm keeping my fingers crossed..hoping for the best.....or rather..the worst...!

French ...Bienvenu

Bonjour! Je m’applle Ashwini! Je vais bien; merci! Et toi ?
This was the first line I spoke in French in Alliance Fran├žaise De Chennai
I went for a 6 weeks course to learn French coz I was forced by the management to switch over from Sanskrit…..ma favourite language I was learning for the past 6 yrs…to either Tamil,Hindi,or French….since i thought it would be unwise to opt for Tamil at the higher secondary level(I’d never even learnt Tamil in school even for a year…so u can guess!) and taking Hindi again after a break of about 3 yrs…I decided that the best thing would be to opt for French. So two days after my 10th exams were over I started my classes. At first everything was yeah French…but it seemed like Greek n Latin.. But thanks to my teacher who made the subject really interesting and made us develop an interest towards it. The three hour classes were fun. From 7 in the morning till 11...the occasional break used to be from 8 45 to 9 but then as the days progressed it used to be till say… 9 15 or even more than that. Here we were trained for practical skills basically and it really helped me in my school.
Now coming back to Rosary…our French teacher Madame Anita made the classes more enjoyable…though she used to fume a bit when we asked for free classes she used to agree in the end(with a lil bit of sweet talk from us….confirming that we would make up for it..though we were aware of the fact that we were way ahead in our subject). We had our French hour jus before lunch n that was a reason for us to ask to be let free coz of the day’s hard work(believe me.!!! J ) and it was during one of those times that I found out our teacher had studied in the same school I studied at first..From then on I used to call her SENIOR!!!!! This was the only class were all the three sections had class the same time …so we used to get news about the other happenings in other classes….. but now all this is over…all those free French classes…mam chatting with us… and having a ball there….Au Revoir !

O Marina...!!! O Marina...!!!

We went to the Marina Beach recently on a saturday...After a heavy North Indian dinner from the Dhaba we headed straight for the beach just to have an ice cream...the 10 of us....after listening to some gud music we got down and i asked everyone their flavours for the ice cream...if there were just one or two its not a big thing...but carefully keeping in mind what the others wanted i walked up to a Kwality Walls vendor( he would have thought i was a nut coz i was muttering to myself abt the flavours).......

ADIEU to my school life

The fourteen years of my school life are over..and i am waiting to see what the future has in store for me...standing in the crossroads of life ...i've been through one phase of life and its really hard to imagine that its all over..i'm no more a school kid...i have a lot of responsibility now and will not be spoon fed anymore....my world is changing and soon i would have to enter a new world,new people,new friends and new environment...and what not ...


Everyone will agree with me that school life is one of the best parts of a person's life..the innocence with which we entered school...not knowing what is expected of us there..how we would adjust to the new environment...and many other mixed emotions ....after that we learnt that is was just a home away from home... we made new friends...grew up with them and they became a part n parcel of our life... we had fun there with them ..and now we find it difficult to leave the gates of our school....to leave our friends ...but of course not the memories...


Memories play a very peculiar role.
They make you laugh when you think of the times you've cried.
They make you cry when you think of the times you've laughed.

Yes it does......

Holiday n Music ..My Best Combo!!!

Like anyone I get the privilege to spend quality time with ma family and may be some of our close pals occasionally ..i can never forget the days in kerala .whether it was to munnar or thekkady or just at home..we had ultimate fun.all of us enjoyed dancing to our favourite tunes and listening to songs ranging from kishore kumar to rahman.with nuggets and burgers to munch.the thing which endeared all of us in our gang was Music...we all loved listening to music..anything...a peppy number or even just a medley..my idea of a perfect holiday - just me and my family off somewhere- away from the rest of the world...just the four of us. and this dream came true in 2004 when we went to goa....the reason it was very special to me is because this was may be just the second or the third time ..only the four of us were off on a holiday...usually it is either our huge family ..with cousins ..or with our friends..though i enjoyed going with the two different groups..one cannot enjoy as much as we do with just our own family.. and when i say holiday and music..yes it definetely rings a bell...we enjoyed listening to other's voices or from some mp3 players or i-pods and had fun to the maximum extent..thats what i would describe as "lying on top of a hill with ma favourite music"..we can survive anywhere with just music...ok..i dont wanna prove that music works wonders but just that i love listening to music and that too on a private holiday.

My First Blog Post

Finally.

After so many days, I now have my own blog.

I think I'm going to have fun writing and posting here.

Writing has never been a passion for me, I do hope to develop my writing skills and share my thoughts.

Welcome to Ashwini's Blog. :)
