things will never be the same


change is the only constant in our lives. and its sometimes too fast and too quick and too drastic to fathom. and sometimes its kind enough to give us time to get in the groove of the newness it brings.

now that im more or less settling into work and my job there and enjoying it, iv had time to sit and think about everything thats going to be different. things have changed drastically. i go to work, im out of commission for close to 9 hours a day. my friends have all gone their own ways. some to study, some to take a year out, some to get married, some to travel. and i dont know how many i will be in touch with.

akshay will go back to college in august. pooja finally got what she wanted and is off to bombay next week, to chase her language dream. lisa is travelling in europe and later in the states. and i going to be cut away from it all. in my bubble. i dont know what im going to do..when i need to talk nonsense and yap the evening away, when i need to laugh about the most inane and not so inane things for no apparent reason, when i want my spirits to be lifted, when i want to eat loochi at kc das, when i want to go to the drag, when i come home and suddenly want chinese for dinner, when i want to go to pondi, when i need someone to talk to in the middle of the night, when i need some dedicated haze time, when i need to watch chick flicks at home, when i want someone to remind me of the hope, when i want to be sentimental, when i want criticism, when i want to take off on a wild road-trip..

..when i want to have some fun, with people who i had so much fun with, when i want a friend.

what's this want to go to pondi thing? Like a sneaky french connection. But people will drop in and out of your life and as long as you're working and so are they it's all good. Then one day they'll scan the wedding card and email it over. That's when it freaks me out.

manu: it scares the crap out of me. if i didnt have something concrete to do, id be driving myself over tge edge. but when your minds occupied it easier to digest.

quietly amused: no sneaky french connection. just 4-5 trips there in 3 years. its my best and 100%-guaranteed-to-make-me-feel-better-again getaway. 2nd pic is in pondi. and that ice cream in those cups is amongst the best iv EVER eaten. i dont know what street it was. we stopped while randomly walking around the place in the rain.

sigh. now i want pondi.

hi clown molestor. me and my friends designed a molestorium - this huge, smooth hemispherical inverted cup, into which the molestees are lowered. the molestOR, ideally a huge, deformed chap, who doesnt speak, just sniffs loudly, is raised into the arena using a hydraulic elevator. now the surface of the molestorium is smooth and slick, so that molestees will try to run up the walls, but slide hopelessly back towards the centre. there are also glass viewports inset into the floor, with viewing cubicles underneath, where the victims families can watch hopelessly from. you can even have some victims-scratching-hopelessly-on the-glass-while-their-relatives wail-desperately-behind-it action. we made drawings and all - will show u some day. this is what you need to do to keep architecture interesting after 4 years, when you've had enough of designing cultural centers and museums and all.

i agree about the keeping-your-mind-occupied thing, but sometimes its just so hard to let go of what you're used to, and to let go of the person you used to be. for me personally, i detest stagnation, but at the same time i'm afraid of sudden change. swalpa weird.

akshay said...

i'm scared. make that terrified.

Quietly Amused said...

It is JN Street. The one way with all the shops. the ice cream I'm guessing is from Richy Rich. Got sick of the place after six years... it's a good get away. sun, sand, tax free alcohol... two days max. Any more than that and I lose it. I'm hoping you didn't come there for spandan from college...

haathi said...

qa: NO! I DIDNT! for all my years in school and college, i steered clear of all these inter class/house/college/scool thingies. except in 8th grade when we went to cascades, ONLY to check out the 'cottonians'. [ayyo so sad we were]
i dont know what my pondi connection funda is actually.
im guessing you studied there. r maybe im guessing wrong.
please tell me you're not from christ college also.

Manu said...

fine.. everyone ignore the poor architect's ravings. smile politely and nod head till he goes away.

haathi said...

MANU! why dont u blog about all this dah! some funny huge ass cope-past blogs u write..which i take 2-3 readings to completely understand. then i dont know what to say. blog about the molestorium. and the shagpad. with the fuzzy insides. AHAH.

Quietly Amused said...

I'm as people have mentioned a surgeon. did my mbbs at pondi. jipmer. unrelated to christ except that I know about a hundred people there. past mostly. so no, I'm not from christ.
