I just od-ed on chocolate. I feel so much better and a bit sick all at the same time. :)
I find it amusing how people react to an R2I-er (return-er-to-india). Anything the R2I-er might complain, or even plain comment about is met with "Oh what a US-return!" or "C'mon, this is India,.." or "quit complaining..". While its perfectly ok for either a local or a foreigner to make the same complaints/comments.
Having lived abroad for eight years now, I am fully aware that going back and readjusting to life in India is not going to be easy. I am sure everyone who does that is. But nobody can prepare fully for the experience, and however much mentally prepared one is, the re-acquainting phase will be long and full of curve balls. It is only natural to react to the deficiencies in the system, until a point when you reach the "chalta hai" attitude nirvana.
I booked my tickets to Chicago. Yay! I am very excited, and hope to make use of all the awesome suggestions you folks left for me.
I joined twitter. I will be a silent observer for now..so don't find myself tweeting yet. I need to make long verbose points a la W O M M not 130 character-ones.
I am determined to pick myself up and run with the flow, make the best of choices I made for myself. GO TGFI! :)
Monday, I plan to visit the gym.
