This one’s strictly a personal post lying in my drafts for sometime now! Few months back, I attended a free self-analysis workshop(some boring stuff), arranged by one of the local NGOs.Every attendee was questioned about, their unforgettable moment in their life so far. Please note that all of us were barely in our mid 20s… Nobody has achieved any thing great, other than being the coolies of the silicon valley of india, serving Fortune 500 biggies and some of us with a job offer,but no call so far!
Ok let me not deviate…for the most unforgettable moment…few samples for you:
The moment I got my job in campus interview….. (fair enough !!)
When I came first in school in +2 ( ekka andipatti la neenga first vantha enna last vantha enna… )
When my parents got married…( :O Beats me )
I thought for a while…(Thought bubbles:Mebbe..The Day when my lil bro’s leg got trodden over by a bus & I was flitting around my parents asking whether I can donate blood,skin… (or) That awesome summer camp I went to once.. Kinda like the Camp ROck stuff,with all the singing & dancing \m/ Well atleast that’s a good memory) I could not come up with a single specific day that is unforgettable. I told the audience that my 4-years of college life are unforgettable in my life . In fact it’s true with most of us and you would agree on this with me.
On an ironic note, I was unfortunate to finish my engineering in the stipulated 4 years…there are much more fortunate souls, who enjoyed full 6 years with all the privileges of a college student.
So when somebody utters the word college, what comes to your mind ??
lemme list down my personal favorites …the list is exhaustive! FYI,I graduated from a not-so-typical** #1 govt-affiliated college from south tamilnadu

Ahemm..Ahem…I’m a singer (officially).Gracy,the young soprano made her debut on March 27th! All thanks to Fiesta,Literary and Fine Arts Association of Mepco schlenk engg College which allows lame wannabe singers a stage for showcasing students’ talents ! I had no intention of sweeping this embarrassment on myself,But still.. If don’t do it now,then when can I ?? So thought of giving it a try Bad Idea (should have known better then)The last minute eureka bulb that glowered on me had its toll on the audience – they had to listen to a shaky voice for approximately 2 minutes(not my normal soprano one) My only solace is in the fact of not being chucked off the dais! A pat on the back for the courageous me for not chickening out… cos then,I’d have graduated outta college without having revealed the peppy singer in me Enough of shameless self promotion,let me end this post with a gud link to a tutorial..on How to Sing .
If you’ve ever seen the audition phase of American Idol(Star Vijay’s Super Singer/Indian Idol/any of those numerous Tv singing shows), you’ll know that there are a lot of people out there who think they can sing(ones like me perhaps ) . You probably also noticed that most of them actually can’t. But although some people seem blessed with the gift of a beautiful singing voice, anyone can learn to sing with a little practice.After hours of singing in the bathroom shower,I’ve now finally graduated to singing in public.Bad begining – Now thats a good omen I couldn’t be happier..All this fuss for a piece of singing – Don’t curse I am gonna upload my singing masterpiece online,for those of you who missed the grand show of the singing sensation ! I know you can’t wait ,gimme a week for uploading . Ciao.
It has been ages since I blogged. I actually cannot point out a specific reason for my absence though I am quite certain that my glorious unpresence would hardly affect anyone/anything. Its been a long while since i’ve clicked on my blog URL,except for those occasional comment check times..Where was I ??Mostly on twitter and a few other forums and wasting my time @ college. Guess what ..For once in my 4 years of grad student life, I was a lil busy: stuck with that dire engineering formality called project work! Even tho’ most parts of it(A web mining framework for evolving user profiles in dynamic websites) are woking and even tho’ we got the site put up a week ago..No thanks to our lab admin (& to those lazy bum batchmates,who shud know more about mirroring important data)our project PC was formatted,leaving us blinking,unable to digest the fact that it was all gone.well….we had to start from version 1.5 Build 6 and proceed from Goodness knowswhere that was..and luckily restored the work Phewwww…!Yipee…Well thats just one reason.Loads of other things have happened.But wait..I’m not gonna bore you with those paltry happenings.Life these days is going _____ (I’m short of words to describe the boringness / monotony of life ****!!) You would never beleive that my movie time has now decreased to a big round ZER0 Can’t believe that I’m still alive No long holidays that i can spend @ home… Even the goverment holidays are stuffed with boring college :-/ Pretty much its a humdrum existence!!
(I love these Phd comic strips,that i’m subscribing to them..pretty cool)
Final Year classes ought to be cancelled – there’s absolutely no point (NONE at all) in sitting in those dull classes except for attendance’s sake… (Take a closer look,you see why)
The only use of those classes so far has been catching up on those mp3s i hadn’t listened to for a long time,reading those classics,those lame magazines,Filling up slam books,sleeping,doodling,making abstract and face sketches..Just about everything that’d kill time.Final semester has been a time for everything but study – Happy to say ‘ve mastered various arts – sketches,poetry,caricature,calligraphy and the like.
I can see that my sense of logic and proportion have started to have a eccentric turn ,which explains this irrational post and irrelevance of content.But trust me. I still have some degree of sanity left within me.
P.S: I am stopping here as the cursor has winked at me for the past 10minutes; mocking my inability to give a coherent shape to my frenzied thoughts. I will continue expounding on the crap-and-boredom which has pervaded my life,a little later. For now,let me think…….Disgruntled-ly yours,
P.S: What do u think of the new header and tagline
Post ur comments, and do update me in your blogroll.
Have a great weekend!
Its been a long time since I’ve visited my blog..I’ve been stuck with some exams and now that I’m done with most of it,I wanted to kick off again into the blogger world,and do what I like to do the best- Blogging,D’oh ! So stay tuned for pieces from my world !
Have an awesome day !
Gracy – Full Throttle
Dear blogging friends,
I don’t know what to do. A few weeks ago, I stopped blogging all of a sudden. I disappeared without a trace..I was taking a break from posting because I had stuff going on in my life that I had to deal with.There’s absolutely no time to blog , and the little time I had for blogging has now become even more restricted with college work and the stuff i am up to…And I am left wondering: should I pack it in altogether? Should I empty my blog once more and leave the blogging scene forever? I’m torn between my love of blogging and my fear of letting myself down !Hoping I will get some time once things get cleared up!! I’ve got so much happening around me!
P.S: Take a look @ my new punkymoods avatar at the right! Thats something thats updated everyday,for sure ! BRB ,Gracy !
