The quip we 'read 10 times' when we were 'punished'
I'm writing in after such a long time that i feel i no longer connect to this blog.... i actually thot i'd get blog going for a long time... lol.... anyway.... I couldn't write in the whole month cause i was busy with our inter-dept/collegiate culturals 'Jhankaar', the very few bearable days of an M.O.Pian's life... when practices go on in full force, fights and friendships happen, events and backdrops get into place, the seniors and juniors work together to make it a good show...
I wouldn't say we rocked... but yes, we were good in some aspects tho we missed out on few other.... alltogether, i was awesome fun and i learnt so much about people in these three weeks that i was a part of the various teams of Jhankaar...
My three important lessons from jhankaar were: First .... i learnt to bond with both my juniors n seniors which is a good thing since, till then i didn't know much about either class. Second.... i learnt to adjust with a huge bunch of people and agree to things that may not be my cuppa but for the good of the dept... I then learnt to enjoy the work with the people around me since thats what makes it all the more better...
My schedule was never ending and i had to keep shifting from one venue to the other without breaks till 8 in the night... but i enjoyed every moment of it... so i have no regrets... :)
And... i also made so many valuable friends... friends i wished i had made before... yet happy i made them now.... there was so much commotion, chaos but we learnt to help each other and get through each day, one at a time. We had disagreements, fights and there was alot of crying, teasing, laughing, weeping, joyousness, hugging, kissing.... bla bla... but what mattered to me at the end was the bonds that i made with people who worked with me.
Like when I and a certain senior A worked to build two 6 foot trees by ourselves, a girl i didn't know much about before became a companion who was with me all the time. We made jokes, discussed college, spoke about our future, worked and at the end we were extremely proud of our creation (one of which resembled a brown leaning tower of pisa!) that we showed it off to everyone. I only knew her as a senior before, but she became a close friend.
Another friend L U .... she n i became close accidently... she came home to get songs for the fashion show... and so it started... my first involvement in the fashion scenario, that i haven't done as much as even peep into before.... and that brought us together... we were in the same events and had to get to places together.. together we created costumes, backdrops, props and everything else for the fashion show... and we felt as tho we gave birth to a child... for when the event was over she came to me n said "our baby is born"... no we didn't win the event... but we were so proud of what we'd accomplished that we didn't worry about the not winning!
And not to forget the adorable juniors, sorry, friends i got from the first yrs :)... Poofy, the most adorable of the lot, to name one... hehe :)
The three action packed days of jhankaar was another journey that i was so happy to be a part of... the cheering, the shouting, the losing... winning.... everything taught me lessons... yes, i've been to countless culturals before but no cultural has taught has taught me as much as this has...
And now a week past jhankaar.... i look back and miss all the noise and chaos... and i wish i could go back to that time and live thru the practices again... It was a month to remember!

|Your Biblical Name Is...|
You will live to see the end of times.
|Your Inner Color is Orange|
Your Personality: A total daredevil, you'll try any thrill. You're easily bored and you prefer to be on the go.
You in Love: You see love as an adventure, and you find most men dull. You need someone who challenges you!
Your Career: Your ideal job is flexible, fun, and maybe a little dangerous. You have the makings of a private investigator or extreme athlete.
|What Your Halloween Habits Say About You|
You love the drama of Halloween. You definitely like to have the best costume around - and everyone noticing you.
No one quite understands you, but everyone also sort of worships you. And that's exactly how you like it.
Your inner child is stubborn and a bit bossy.
You truly fear the dark side of humanity. You are a true misanthrope.
You're prone to be quite emotional and over dramatic. Deep down, you enjoy being scared out of your mind... even if you don't admit it.
You are unique, expressive, and a trendsetter. Your ideal Halloween costume is over the top and one of a kind.
|You are a No Drama Mama!|
No need for drama, you just chill out and don't let things bother you
You've got a peaceful, zen-like attitude... even when things get crazy
You're a pleasure to be around, and you have lots of friends to show for it
You don't need to be the center of attention, you're happy enough as is!
You can seem confident when the occasion calls for it
But inside you may be experiencing a bit of self doubt
A little more inner confidence could take you far...
And convince others that you're as confident as you try to seem
|You Are An Introvert!|
You're not necessarily anti-social, but you do tend to need a lot of alone time.
You tend to think before you talk, which doesn't make you the loudest person in the room.
While you aren't outgoing, you are a good listener - and you tend to be a loyal friend.
And you enjoy your friends as much as any extrovert does, in smaller doses.
You're more of a conversation over dinner type than a party animal... and so are all your friends.
|Your Superpower Should Be Mind Reading|
You are brilliant, insightful, and intuitive.
You understand people better than they would like to be understood.
Highly sensitive, you are good at putting together seemingly irrelevant details.
You figure out what's going on before anyone knows that anything is going on!
Why you would be a good superhero: You don't care what people think, and you'd do whatever needed to be done
Your biggest problem as a superhero: Feeling even more isolated than you do now
|Your Interpersonal Intelligence Score: 78%|
Your Interpersonal Intelligence is High
You are definitely a "people person." You enjoy spending time with others.
You instinctively understand people, and you are both a good counsellor and mediator.
However, there are definitely times when you've had enough. And that's when you cherish being alone.
|You Communicate Like a Woman|
You empathize, talk things out, and express your emotions freely.
You're a good listener, and you're non-judgmental with your advice.
Communication is how you connect with people.
You're always up for a long talk, no matter how difficult the subject matter is.
You Are 58% Misanthropic
You're somewhat misanthropic, but you're not willing to write off the human race (yet!).
There's a few people you like, and even them you like at a distance.
