I hate being a Good Apple

Life is full of surprises, and so is someone's email account. I dont know about you, but whenever I give my login and password to my login page and wait in anticipation as bytes after bytes of information loads up slowly on your browser..., I get this wonder feeling in the back of mind, a sense of mystry..waiting to be unfold,

Who'd have mailed me ??? How many new mails ?? How many are junk, How many are spam?? Who all are the needy ones and who all are the greedy ones!! Then there are old friends, who'll open up their mail accounts, they wont be in a position to share daily life with you, becoz you dont know thier surroundings, so every once in a while... they'll send you a forward. A mail marked Fwd. used to irritate me... It still does, only if its a regular, run of the mill forward with dumb sentiments and ppl dying be4 telling others that they love or how perfect and sweet the life is with an irritating _please_feel_guilty_if_you_dont_forward_this_furthur_ message. On other hands, there is this different type of forward, which comes from a friend you havent spoken to in a while and it makes you feel god even before you open it! Its that feeling that you are in someone's addressbook, someone remembered you for a while and is letting you know that he exists and is in touch with you!, which makes me feel ecstasic.... anyway, I think you get my meaning and are wondering whats the apple has got to do with it, right ???

So here's the fwd:
Boys are like apples on trees.
The best ones are at the top of the tree. The girls don't want to reach for the good ones because they're afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead they just get the rotten apples that are on the ground, that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think that there is something wrong with them, when in reality, they are amazing. That is why we just have to be a little patient and the right girl, the one who takes a chance to find the good, right apple, will come someday...

Coz I like someone ..

Would you go and say to someone that you like them ??
Or will you hide your love simply because this world forces an average human mind to think that the fellow is proposing to someone when he says "I like you" ??

This is just after valfi time, when ppl would go out to Booze Parties, get drunk like hell and then tell their best friends how much they like them .. If I have no fear telling any male that I like him, why do I have a gut feeling not to tell one of my female friends that I like them ???

Al these movies show and all these forwards keep telling you that tell whomsever you like that you like them, its good to hear too ... but yet, it feels awkward and is interpreted differently by the same female who forwarded it to you ...

I for one have a flaw, I fall in love with every damsel I meet.. there is some thing to like in everyone... As my good friend Jain used to say :

Women are of two types: Good and Better

So here I am, with a truckload of girls I am attracted to, I have loved only one of them and never got the same feel again. Well not never, except the 2nd girl is so versatile and with her I feel someone I am not, but I know she likes me as a friend and thats where my boundary is.

Without hope or agenda, yesterday morning 0020 hrs, I told her that she was perfect, and she agreed, that she's perfect.... We are still good friends and hope we remain so forever. The reason I posted this was, I am at a level of friendliness with this girl that I havent been with any before... She knew my heart and expected it sooner or later. She also knows that I am, and always will be, an admirer. But as long as we both know the limits, she's fine.. and I am glad that i told her.. It feels good to tell someone you like them and not get misinterpreted ..

try it out, trust me...
The right one is bound to come along.. sooner or later.

till then'

Just this ....

"Revenge is never a straight line. It is a forest. And like a forest, it is easy to lose your way."
-Hanzo Hattori in Kill Bill Vol.1. 

THe night before, I watched Kill Bill Vol. 2 with Gags, a wing senior.

The movie was awesome.  I liked the first one better because the copious amounts of awesome fight scenes in it, but the second one served to tie up loose ends and to answer a lot of questions.  I thoroughly enjoyed both films

I've come to the conclusion that I loved both parts of the movie and can't compare them.  It's just like when Daryl Hannah's character asks Michael Madsen's character which of the two hanzo swords are better.  You can compare them to other swords, but never to each other. 

Why did I start my entry with that quote? I think it not only applies to revenge, but it applies to life in general.  I've been thinking about my life and where I want it to head in the next few years and I've realized, I have no idea what I want or expect out of life.  I thought that after my "soul searching" over the last few years that I would have a few more answers as to where I see myself in a few years, but I really don't know. 

Have you ever wondered what is life , ???
I am wondering that right now ... and I am confused ... am I old enough for that sort of shit ??

PS: If I ever come to an answer, I'll tell you...

Monday, April 12

This is the first post, and now I take myself to a place where none in my family have ventured before...
The day is 12th of April, I still havent completed my BTP report and I have yet to meet my guide. I am in fear of failure once again and do not have a clue on what to do or the guts to face him.

I wish that troubles will be soon over and that this blog will see some happy times.

for now .. Over and out!
