Pragi's Rules

Every rule I have here has inspiration from all the frustration that grows within me! It makes me feel so much better I can vent all that feeling into this little pane with buttons!


Rule #1 : Canis familiaris are not allowed to bark after 10.00pm. Homo Sapiens sleep at this time.

Rule #2 : Computers should not take too much time to load.

Rule #3 : Sick leaves should be made unlimited. ;)

Rule #4 : F.R.I.E.N.D.S. should never stop. There are ardent fans around the globe.

Rule #5 : Mangoes should grow all through the year.

Rule #6 : Unlimited luggage on flights. (This one is for you Naveen)

Rule #7 : When the course is your option, why not exams?

Rule #8 : There should be a time limit for every jean's usage.

Rule #9 : Cell phone bills should become extinct.

Rule #10 : Cute kids should remain kids.

Rule #11 : Short Messaging Services should be free on Post paid also! :'(

Rule #12 : People who make movies with loads of money but which ultimately turn out to be utter crap should be shot down!

Rule #13 : Every girl's dream of owning clothes she loves should be fulfilled (then and there!)
(I owe this one to the smartest WILLS shirt I've seen!)

Rule #14 : Adam, you find it funny that Eve loves chocolates and ice creams? Yes, we do. It's not a damn waste of iron and steel with lousy names! Yamaha?!? Well.. what's that?! Adam should stick to his comments and keep the crap bag closed! So shut up guys!!!

Rule #15 : Summer should be declared Deathbed time in Hyderabad. We smiling hard to check if the moisturizing cream is still on, we're stuck indoors cause the heat kills, we're waiting for electricity, we're paying much more for water - autos, the crappiest movies release this time so they can make the most out of a holiday season and our frustration grows. If there is one thing to be really happy about... clothes dry in minutes.. psst psst... @ night!!!!

Young & Free

22.

22..

22,

22?

What is this age? - Young & Free / Experimental Adolescence / Quest to find THE ONE person / Responsible Budding citizens / Spendthrift on oneself.

The past week I got back home not before 10pm everyday. One day I got out of work only at 12:15 am. I woke at 10am every morning and conveniently took a rickshaw to work. One day cabs came very late to pick me up from home. I was with a few friends and we stopped to have tender coconut and chatted as we reached work. It was the routine get to your desks with b'fast and start work. After work, a friend and I left to Lifestyle. We walked around the store waiting for the other one to complain of an aching leg. We left the store when they were closing and waited a half hour for frankies to take home. It was close to 10:30 by then and we were absolutely fine with the fact that we were so late.

I reached home and sank into my pillow and realized how late it had been and how easy I was about that. It had begun. The feeling that I have to give up everything once my parents get me married had begun. The fact that I could not wake whenever I wanted to had begun.

I remember a friend's status on Facebook - 'Just because we are seeing each other, does not mean we are a packaged deal.' My question is 'What if you are married? Aren't you a packaged deal then? Doesn't the 'I' become 'we'? Doesn't the name on the mail box change? Or sometimes doesn't the mail box change by itself? When you wanna make plans with your friends, can you decide without a phonecall? Don't you make compromises on dinner plans?' How much is it worth?

Is life not easier when you are so young and free? Change can be constant, but does that not require a change?

** I slept at 4am and walked into work at 11:30am. I was at the gym for 1.5 hours and bathed for 1 hour. I had very little work to do today and I'm blogging for about .5 hours. If I were a wife, I would have cleaned a house, vessels, complained about maids, run to the TV to see my fav songs about 10 times, answered the door a million times blah blah blah. I was going mad last night thinking of what all one has to give up. I slept for 3 hours and am all cranky now. **

Back to the grind

With the start of the academic year here, life is almost back to the grind. School is priority uno for both G boy and me. This year looks pr...
