Yeah. I know it's the whole Diwali spirit. I could see it coming. And being a part of the blogworld actually makes it worse now. Next week, the indian students association celebrates diwali night here. I will go to that, and that should be nice. My non-desi friends are great sports and will enjoy coming to them with me. But right now, am missing my desi friends a tad more. Been wondering why I never made an effort to integrate better with the desi community here. I guess, as long as I had my friends, it was okay, and then they left and I just didn't feel like making any new ones. It's hard to find friends of your type anyways, and I will admit I actually deliberately steered clear of the desi community because some aspects of it always put me off. I have been happy with the peripheral involvement I have..the occasional hindi chats at the bus stop and bumping in at desi events..so that way I still enjoyed the comfort of seeing my people...but could keep my distance - and that was a choice I made.
Ahh well. I have enough to keep me busy. As long as I steer clear of the happy diwali messages and phone calls (And blog posts ;) )I should do fine. For once, I want the weekend to come and go, as soon as possible, and then get on my flight to ottawa! yay!
p.s: Happy Diwali to y'all :-)
