The sudden lull on my part to update this blog can be attributed to such diversified reasons such as absence of internet facilities, intermittent power cuts, not enough privacy at home, absence of motivation to create a new post and involvement in a lot of other work. But i guess it is largely just due to my laziness and sluggishness. (Yeah now you know how to write a sentence that make perfect sense.) The B.Tech hangover is still persisting in my head, strongly reminiscent of waking up on a morning filled with inebriated memories of the previous night. As you can see, the laziness and sluggishness, characteristic so much of a hangover, have come to define my very state of existence now. And guess what! I am not even complaining about it!
I wish I could say that now that my B.Tech is over and that I have a decent job in my pocket, I could just come home and relax without losing any sleep over anything. But like I had notified earlier, my Dad is opening a restaurant and as is becoming very evident, it is not an easy job! There are some hundred things to be done and the inauguration is set on 15th of May. So as you can see, I have actually been occupied.
Also of significance was my Scotch whiskey session last night with my Dad and Uncle, the Scotch, this time being WILLIAM GRANT’S. Extra-ordinarily smooth! On par with Chivas Regal!
And as I was delightfully savoring the smoothness of the Scotch, I somehow actually missed the toxic, unforgiving and cheap OLD MONK XXX Rum that was my appetite in the hostel. Or I guess I just missed the company of my fellow alcohol buddies and the subsequent inebriated midnight walk around the campus.
All said and done, I really still need to write a post epitomizing my 4 year stay at NITK. I even know what it will be titled. I just need to write it thats all. I just hope that, like the innumerable times that it has happened before, I will not lose the drive and motivation to write this all important post. I also truly believe that my relationship with alcohol deserves a full post to itself. So hopefully I will be able to do justice to both these posts soon.
But presently, all I am feeling is just a lot of laziness and a lot more sluggishness. The only stuff I feel like doing now is reading MIDNIGHT’S CHILDREN by Salman Rushdie. I guess will just go do that now…….
