My prolonged vacation..


Vacations suck, especially when you know that after it's over, you will not go back into the routine that you were so used to for 3 whole years.. (I'm still heartbroken over passing out, so please bear with some emotional sop)

I just got back home after a 11 day fiasco, in coconut oil and overly hairy men land. The experience was moderately pleasant. I didn't miss coming online this holiday. Trivandrum for me has always been torture. I'm house arrested with no bike, no friends, no gym and no internet connection at home. But this time around, i embraced all that with an overdose of Zoom TV, MTV, 9XM, HBO and Star Movies. Crappy bollywood songs and ridiculously idiotic chick flicks and vague, stupid boy humour flicks are all on the back of my hand now.

I considered writing a book with all the free time in hand, but NO.. the idiot box screamed out my name the minute my eyes opened in the morning.

As for gymming, my next best friend after the internet, i compensated that with running up and down the hillside. My grandma has a house right on top of the hill. You get a splendid view of the whole city if you stand on the terrace. Anyways, back to my primitive workout sessions.. I couldn't feel my back for 5 hours straight after running all over the hill. And when i could finally feel some sensation on my back, it felt like a T-Rex had marched all over my back and jumped on it a few hundred times.

And finally, the sole reason for this unholy trip this year - Weddings! I tried my very best to slip out of my socially awkward self and make conversation and pretend to know my extended large deranged family with horny uncles and matchmaking aunts all in toe. As for cute boys, there were NONE! *sniffs*

Coming back to the point of this post - Vacations SUCK! Vacations are for losers! I want work, i want work!

when we where in school, vecations where the time we where eagerly looking forwards to... but when I was in college, vecation mens keeping out of touch with frineds and staying at home, and slowly the attraction faded away...
and somewhere in the journey, I wanted to have noo vecations.. but after I joined the job and managing my life, I miss my home - i dearly wish to run back, to keeep myself cocooned in teh greenery - away from net and even cell phone where office calls wont reach me, where client issues wont exist, and where i can binge on moms food...

Enjoy them when you can have them, coz the life ahead offers you lot of oppertunites to work, but not so much to take a break. Thalle.. chellakili thiruvanthoram kaari aanalle :) (effect of frndz wrking at TVM technopark :P )
