I’m halfway through my semester break so this is not really the ideal time for a post like this but still, here’s a short description of my plans for the semester break. Its almost been a month since the third semester ended. I stayed in Bhopal till 26th November to check my marks, which were satisfactory. I’m expecting a SGPA between 7.5 and 8 which would be an improvement over the last 2 semesters. I’m eagerly waiting for the result which should be out pretty soon.
After all the hard work done to convert 79s to 81s, finally it was time to go home after 5 weeks of staying in Bhopal which also happens to be my longest stay ever in Bhopal. Somehow, I always manage to visit Delhi once a month. I don’t see that happening too often in the future though. So for the last 20 days I’ve been enjoying my stay at home. Homemade food tastes heavenly after 5 weeks of having mess food, canteen food and towards the end of it, the paranthas at main station with my buddy Shilpesh. I’m enjoying the number options of fast food joints I have in Delhi. Apart from eating, and sleeping, I’ve been watching quite a few movies (no I’m not a fan of the tubelight series and am not talking about full moons or crescents) . I just love the number of multiplexes I have to chose from and how I can book my movie tickets very conveniently online. Speaking of movies, I watched 2012 in Bhopal(Hindi dubbed :D). The Hindi dialogues made that boring movie a bit interesting and gave me reasons to LMAO at every dialogue. You must read this review of the movie by Ankur, my views are very similar.
Here are some random updates about my life at home. As usual, I’ve been blogging a lot more frequently at home and that’s probably I’m writing this post. I got a wireless router at home, got a beetel router through Airtel because that turned out to be a better option than buying one. For a one time charge of Rs 1500, I can do anything I want with the router and get unlimited replacements from Airtel if anything gets messed up. Quite a few Airtel engineers that handle my locality know me too(kinda helps at times). My PC(yes, the one I used to use before I got myself a laptop) turned 9 and probably will get some rest soon. Its been serving my family for over 9 years and its still usable despite of the fact that the only changes I’ve done to it is replaced a dead 128 MB SD RAM module with a 256 MB one and eventually 512 MB and replaced the CD ROM drive with CD-writer DVD Combo drive. Buying a new PC is something that is planned for this semester break and I shall be doing it soon.
I’ll be going to
Bombay Mumbai for a week in 2 days to attend Mood Indigo, the cultural fest of IIT Bombay. That would be one week of separation from my laptop, its always been with me ever since I bought it. I’ll have my phone for internet access as always :). I’ll be back in Delhi by 26th December. Nothing great planned for the rest of the sem break yet. College reopens in the 2nd week of January. I’ll spend my time at home in Delhi till then.
