The Connect

Woohoo I just managed to make my post count to 5 after 5 yrs not bad, I am improving :-). Well I will start this post by wonderful status update I read on social networking site:

25-26 is not a nice age for a man....your ex-gfs are getting married, Your career has just started, Elders treat you as unproven theorems, College guys feel that you are too old to have in their group... You seem to enjoy both cartoon and news. You can no longer eat whatever you wish without putting on weight. You look like an ape if you don’t shave daily. You are not invited for weekend cricket matches. Every Aunt you meet asks “Shaadi kab kar rahe ho beta!!” while uncles-> “Career ka kya socha hai beta…”.. When the reality is that you are just riding the wave and going with the flow… You have all the confidence in the world but little achievements to show, You already have the first hand experience of the life , You know that whatever you have been taught about the world in schools has been sheer waste of time. You can be denied a job even after passing the test and you could be given a job if you know someone placed high enough… Politics till now was a dirty word but now you feel it everywhere. You know now love is not that blind and that friendship has its terms and conditions. .You know there is nothing for granted and free lunches are not free… Your overconfidence is now making way for a humble conscience...You now know it is not exactly what you thought it would be… :)

Though I seem to have topped the age-group by additional couple of years, I can eat whatever I wish without putting any additional ounce and I still do get invited to weekend cricket matches :-) but all others statements connect straightaway.

Courtesy the additional years the pressure is exponentially more on getting hitched and I still feel it isn’t the right time. Moreover you need to have a girl as well to get hitched as well and I seem to be doing pretty bad in that department too. My latest crush announced she got engazed even before I could ask her out or think something. But that’s the way life is :-).

Just happened to return from whirlwind trip of beautiful city Bangalore but it felt completely different from how I had seen it 2 years back. The time I had moved out, it was just a temporary stint and I was bound to back, but things do change and they change fast when you don’t want it and when you really want it change somehow the time just stops(theory of relativity ;-)). It was memorable trip as I ended up winning 2 IPods and getting to know some more cool people. Maybe it was just too short a trip but I never felt at home the way I used to before.

Time to closeup and head to bed, since I am supposed to get up early and resume my half marathon practice which I have been missing for 2 weeks now. I hardly have time, about 25 days before my second half marathon where the aim this year is to improve my time and without any cramps or sprain and not to forget the noble cause I am running(more in next update).
