What is really weird, is that somehow everybody I pass today is acting all nice to me. It's going so good it's freaking me out. This cute girl in the college bus kept smiling at me and started a chat w/ me about how cold the weather has become suddenly. I was sittin on the stairs outside a class and a guy comes and tells me that if I want, he can open the lounge upstairs so that I can relax comfortably on a sofa. I mean what is all this! All of a sudden people become nice? Gimme back the mean old mad humans who didn't care about anyone! I feel like I'm living in Barbieland or something. Haha! Just kidding. Things are good. I am nice to people and I like it when people are nice to me. Works out for me :) It's just that when you have days which go really good and everyone is nice... then you get used it it and when things get normal and people get mean again... it gets frustrating. Hehe.

Signing over my soul to Big BanksThu, 31st Jan '02, 1:10 pm::

Right now I'm in the Douglas Library on campus. I forgot that my class starts at 2:50 pm on Thursdays and NOT at 1:10 pm! So I've got a lot of time to just chill out and do nothing :)

Anyways what a weird day (in a good way) this has been so far. I woke up in the morning thinking this will be yet another gloomy boring day but turns out things have turned out quite the opposite. I went to Walmart and I found this great workout bench at a much much lower price than I expected. The guy working there was pretty nice and showed me 10 different benches before I picked the one that would suit me. He ordered it for me and said I should be getting it within a week :) Yay!

Then I went to the First Union Bank near our store to open an account with them. I've been there many times and like the service they provide so I thought it'd be great if I can get things like online-banking, credit-card-payments-online, atm service, direct deposit etc., for a fee of like $10-$15 per month. Guess what? The girl there told me that since I am a college student... I can get ALL of the above... for... $0 !!! Yup! It's all free. There is no minimum balance, there are no monthly or yearly fees, there are no transaction fees, no charge for anything! I asked her specifically... umm... what exactly do you guys make for giving me all these free services? She said: Nothing. We just hope that when you start working, you will extend your account and get a full checking/savings account with us. I think that's only fair.

She instantly added me to the bank-database and I deposited $50 :) Now within 3-4 days I'll be getting my debit card (which I can use like a normal credit card) and so finally I can buy all the cool stuff online! Yay!!! There are sooooo many things I need to buy... Ah... The list is endless :) The cool thing is that this is a debit card and not a credit card. So I don't have to pay up stuff at the end of the month and blah blah paperwork stuff. If there's money in my bank account, I can use each and every cent to buy stuff online and if I don't, then the transaction won't take place. So I don't even have to worry about someone finding my card no. and using it to buy a $350,000 Aston Martin with it, since well... my account won't have $350,000 in it (atleast not in the immediate future... hehe).

Anyways after I got out of the bank feeling really great, I went to buy some computer parts (D-link Router, 256MB RAM etc.) since someone I know needs it. Guess what? The guy gave me 10% discount on everything! Whoa! This day is going great! Haha... Then I went back to our store, got on the bus and came to college, thinking I have a 1:10 class.. but turns out my class is at 2:50! Doh!

I am soooooo tired I don't even have the energy to whine about it. Do you have ANY idea what 5 non-stop hours of math is like? 3 continuous junior/senior level college courses all of which discuss pretty much the same mind-numbing things????? Ahhhh. I don't even wanna talk about studies. Let's talk about ppl!

I have this new friend, Mary, who is in my both honors classes. She's been a paralegal for many years, works for this law firm, and is studying for her law school degree (or something along those lines) as a part-time student in University College - Rutgers. Today she gave me a free Rutgers t-shirt and also dropped me off @ The State Theater of New Jersey since my aunt picks me up from there. Cool huh?

This morning I went to the student services office for some paperwork and behind me this dear old lady was slowly walking on crutches (or was it a walking stick?... i can't remember). So I held the door open for her so that she can walk into the building easily and she gave me a real good smile and said, "Thank you, young man." Now I went in the building and she was standing in the line next to me and we started talking about stuff. I thought she had a child in college, but turns out she wanted to join college and study business. That's impressive. I asked her why do you want to start studying at such an old age (I was not offensive... I asked really politely) and she said... "I'm just trying to fulfill my grandma's wish. She wanted me to go to college." And I said... "So am I..."

Ahhhh... I was shaking for over ten minutes after that... just made me feel all homesick...

I'm sooo full now. My aunt makes such good food that I end up eating a bit too much. Hehehe...

Today was a pretty good day @ college. First I met my international adviser regarding some work-related issues and then I went to see my friend Astrid @ Cook Campus Center since she works at The Coffee Cove. By god she's soooo nice and sooooo much fun to talk to. Too bad I don't drink coffee anymore... I'm sure I could've got a large cup for the price of a medium! Haha...

Now most of you don't know this, but I used to drink coffee back when I was in India, but only when I took a nap in the afternoon and my mom made coffee for me when I woke up so that I'd be fresh by the time my dad came home. You see my dad didn't like the fact that I'd be home doing nothing and just sleeping. Hehehehe. So if I ever slept, then after having some of my mom's coffee... I'd be all awake and act as if I was doing some important work all day. Haha. Ok Daddy! You caught me now. LOL.

After my classes I got the car from our store and went shopping. I wanted to buy a good workout bench and had seen one for a good price in a K-Mart catalogue... but the one I wanted was sold out :( Anyways, I think tomorrow I'll get this Body By Jake EX-155 Standard Weight Bench from the nearby Modells store. Looks pretty neat to me! Here is a bigger pic of the same.

Ok, time to go and study now! Cya...

Just got home. Yet another 13 hours of college. Wednesdays and Thursdays are killers. I just came back from one of the most interesting courses I've ever taken: Exploration in Media Sciences - This course teaches what goes on behind closed doors... rather behind the camera while the advertizements are in the front. If I wasn't this tired, I would definitely say a lot about it, since it was really interesting.

So I'm taking two honors classes (Wed & Thu : 6-9 pm) and I'm the youngest student in both :) It's soooo weird, since the average age in both the classes is around 35!!! I feel like a child in front of all these adults (all of whom have jobs and most have kids elder than me!). But it's nice and refreshing to actually meet intelligent matured people.

Ahhhhh. Back home finally. God I'm soooo tired. I left our house @ 8:30 am and came back home @ 9:30 pm!!! That's 13 hours of college! And this is exactly how my Wednesdays and Thursdays will be like. Ahhhhh. What fun it is! I am soooo tired and I have soooo many things to do.

My work project on campus is going pretty good. The system is up and running and surprisingly crash-proof so far. I couldn't get into the economics class today and I really doubt that I will be able to.

The interesting news for the day is that today I discovered that I'm a victim of mathematicization: I have THREE higher-level math classes almost everyday right one after another! I took this Computer class called 'Discrete Structures' and two math classes 'Calculus 3 - Multivariable Calc' and 'Linear Algebra'. Turns out, Discrete Structures is also a math class although regarded as computer. Damn!!!!! I have 3 math classes and 2 honors classes! What a messed up schedule! No interesting classes, no fun, no nothing :( On top of that, each math class has weekly quizzes + tests + homework + 3-4 exams. Urghhhhhhhh. If I don't respond to your emails, stop writing this 'blog or disappear completely off the face of this Earth without trace, then you know what to blame!

Anyways, I should start doing all the homework I got and I still have a couple of projects to complete by this weekend. Ahhhhhhhhhh. 4 hours of sleep... Not enuf not enuf...

Ok! 'Blog time :) Today was my first day back at the new semester and the first thing I did was go and meet my friends on Cook campus - Kathleen, Astrid & Vicky! It's been a loooong time since I saw you all! *hugs* (hope your shower is fixed by now. hehehe!)

After that I went to my office to work for about an hour and then went for my computer class, but it was cancelled. So I went to sell my books from last term. Imagine this... the books that cost me over $200 last term, sold for ONLY $44 !!! God this is SOOOO expensive. Who said knowledge was cheap! After being disgusted by the book-rip-off-episode, I went to chill out in the computer lab for 2 hours and @ 4:20 went to economics class. Now I haven't been able to register for this economics class since it's already full. I'm trying to get in, but since it is a class that most 4th year students take (as it's very important for graduating) there is a high chance that I'll be denied entry into the course. The teacher was pretty neat though and it would be very interesting to study under her. Love her Ukrainian-Russian-type accent O:-)

And now I'm back home! Dinner was good. Will get started on a new website project now. I'll post details of that later in here :)

I'm sooooo tired! I had a pretty good day today. I did two neat things today: my job on campus and fix up of our Toyota '99. Well I'll take a couple of days more to settle down at my workplace but the nice thing is, the people there are great! So all's well on that front (except that some part of the work is a bit too hard for me... and it'll take a lot of effort to get the job done in time... ahhh).

Now the more interesting part is that our Toyota Corolla '99's left headlight, left stop & tail light and left side marker light blew out. My aunt bought the spares and without telling anyone, I installed everything all by myself! I was supposed to help my uncle put in the parts after he came home later at night, but I was just too eager to try it all out myself. So I followed the instructions in the owner's manual and did it all by myself. Hehe. I feel proud of myself. LOL. Even if someday I hack into, I wouldn't think I'm smart or anything... (and don't worry, I don't do stupid things like that). But I know nothing about cars and just that fact that I did some small fix-ups in it... makes me feel all smart right now... hehehe...

I attend a six-hour Defensive Driving Course, a $75 course offered at no-charge to me by my buddy John @ Safety First Driving School. If you are in New Jersey and have atleast 2 points on your DMV record or you think your insurance is too high, you should most definitely take this course. I don't have any points, but my insurance is pretty high and taking this classroom course will hopefully reduce my annual insurance by upto $100 for three years! That's a hell lot of saving considering it took 6 hours of just sitting in a room, watching instruction videos, eating free pizza w/ coke, along with 7 other people (and next to this cute girl who also goes to Rutgers... hehe...).

"Mummy says u have to come here before her birthday. I say u have to come here after my exams. Daddy says u have to come here whenever u want but he will decide when u have to go back..."

God I miss them...

I'm on the payroll now! Work starts soon. My position is: "Department of Student Services Residence Life Database Manager." God the longer the title the less important the job and vice versa! Hahaha... E.g. : CEO - BIG $.... DSSRLDM - small.

Today (actually yesterday considering it's past midnight) I spent a few hours at our store and saw a pretty neat movie there: The Philadelphia Experiment. It's an old movie about time-travel and electro-magnetic radiation generators, released in 1984, but still pretty neat.

Ok so you prolly read about my bad grades yesterday. Now this makes me feel mad/sad/bad. But I don't become mean or angry to vent out my fury. I just do something to make myself feel a little good. Call me superfluous or shallow, but at a time like this... I just need something to make me feel good. So what did I do last night? Well I voted myself to the title of Calcutta's Coolest Dude!!!

Actually I've always wondered if I could make a software that can influence online-polls and voting-booths; turns out I can! Haha. I'm @ about 20% right now and it's going up! The average is about 0.0001%. Muhahahahahaha. I feel evil!

I have some bad news. I was afraid that I had done bad in my Statistics class and turns out my suspicions were true. I got my grades today and I got A's in all my other subjects (Calculus, Economics, Music, and Meteorology) and got a damn B in Statistics! Don't feel like saying anything else today. Sorry.

Oh my god!!!! I DO NOT BELIEVE THIS! It's IMPOSSIBLE! At 11:40 am I post that I want this USB Radio and at 2:15 my wish is granted! My friend Derek Prospero just purchased the item online for me!!!!!! And he is not even asking for cash! I mean... God! I love my friends.

Actually he's really happy @ me since one of my freeware programs helped him save a lot of money (since he did not have to spend anything on purchasing commercially available alternatives). What can I say! Life is GREAT! I'm just waiting for it now...

Now a lot of you know that I have a Pinnacle PcTv hardware chip using which I see cable-tv on my PC almost everyday. It's working great but now I'm getting greedy and want something more! I want this USB Radio! It's just like a real radio that I can control through my PC. It can record live radio in MP3 format, store upto 200 preset channels and keep recording live radio even when I'm away. It costs only $16 but I need a damn credit card to order it :( Anyone nice enuf to order it for me?

It's no fun working out in the winter! I was in the basement working out for over an hour and I still feel all lazy and unfresh. Of course, I'm tired as hell but that refreshing feeling of adrenalin rush is missing. Don't get me wrong; I love winter more than summer. But it doesn't feel as good when you work out in freezing condition.

Just found this site: Movie - Quotes and oh my god... it's soooo cool! I found some of my favorite movie/tv-show quotes in there and then some I had forgotten long ago but was glad to be reminded of. Check it out. My fav. quote is:

Quote for the day: "Sell crazy somewhere else. We're all stocked up here." - Melvin, played by Jack Nicholson in As Good As It Gets.

Oh my god! This is sooo sad. I just downloaded a pretty stupid song because... err... well... I can't get it out of my head! The song is... "Can't get you outta my head - Kylie Minogue" Haha. Ironic! Isn't it ?

Ahhhh... The lessons life teaches you. Here's a chat excerpt from a couple of nights back:

    Girl: you need to have awkward pauses, you cant talk that much
    Girl: you cant divulge that much info at first
    Boy: Awkward pauses are GOOD ???????????
    Girl: uh huh
    Boy: NO WAY ! i thought i had to do everything to NOT have them! damn!
    Girl: you dont have to talk a lot to people, and with awkward pauses, you can make a quick joke, and the girl will like ya more
    Boy: dammit! see! NOW u tell me. lol.

Good morning beautiful world! Things have been going pretty great lately. I woke up @ 8 and got ready prepared to go to work on campus but it's still closed :( On the brighter side, I get 5 more days of vacation!

Then I went to our store and did some work. But then I got to talk to my family! It's been a long time since I heard from them.

Anyways I think I heard someone I know on the radio today - Kath's roommate Vicky... I was listening to Z100 - New York (while driving to pickup some stuff for our store) and I heard them talk about some females-only club (the name of which I'm afraid to mention. Hehe). And I'm 99.99% sure that one of the guest callers was Vicky! Let's see. I'll ask her when she comes online. Hehe.

I was talking to my friend Vicky online and I just said these words, which I think are more true than anything I've said in weeks:

My cuzins downloaded these Simpsons Icons and replaced the My-Computer / Internet-Explorer icons with them. Of course I wouldn't be caught dead doing that myself, but I think some of the icons are pretty cool.

After many days / weeks, I actually did some decent work around the house. My uncle and I just assembled 4 oak (or was it teak?) high-seat chairs for our kitchen table. Took us more than an hour! But atleast the new 9.6v power-drill was helpful :)

After that we insulated the hot water pipes that come out from our basement and go to the top floor bathrooms. And after that we fixed up the broken hinges and stuff in the air vents/tubes. Phew. All done now.

I had 2 slices of pizza, some REALLY sour orange juice, and then came up here. Life is beautiful. :)
