Feeling Terrible...

I feel terrible... Lately, I make girls cry. I don't/didn't intent to.. still it happens. Why me? Why?

I get back to Frost:

Woods are lovely, dark and deep
But I have promises to keep......
Miles to go before I sleep...........
Miles to go before I sleep...........

I am here to do my doctoral studies. I don't have anything else in my priority list..... Until this mission is complete.

Signing off, Sands.

I am too fast

How much time should I wait between two comments?


Anyway the idea is good. - assuming that the BOTs are stupid.

The RED girl

Back to Munich. I feel home.... the very feeling I had when I landed in Frankfurt was as good as the one I had when I had reached Kerala. I did breath in all the air I could - my way of welcoming myself to the land.

My new appartment partner looks like a very nice girl. A girl who loves red. Plates, bowls, spatula, napkin, candle, tooth-brush, cushion ... everything everything.. is red.

She reads a lot, she loves languages.... keeps the place too clean..... loves to chat.. Even though she is not even 18, she shows the maturity of a much older person.

The first signs show that this would be a good partnership.

All the same, there are some small little issues which could crop up. Anyway, I was tired to the core last night. Couldn't talk longer to know things better.

Well, I am sure that I am going to have a wonderful time here. Altogether, the red girl is very good.

Signing off, Sands.

PS: Too busy right now to write lots of other stuff which I want to. May be later...

Longest Trip

lufthansa I am all set for one of the longest single journeys till date. The time it would take from my starting point to the final destination = 48 hours! I think, I am going to enjoy all of it. (My luggage consists of just two backpacks!)

Everything is ready - packed and weighed. I need to buy one or two small things tomorrow.

A small change in the plan. Frankfurt railway station, instead of airport, will be having the honor of hosting me for a night... - as late night check-ins are not permitted. Well, I'll have to search for a warm place in the railway station - to rest and to sleep.

For my readers' relief: I might be taking a two week's break from this blog. (But still keep looking, I might write.)

Signing off, Sands.

Change of interests (reading)

Song des Moments [Song of the moment] :  Vizhikalil vizhikalil vizhunthu vittay, Enakkul enayaey olithu vethay... ... Sithariya idhayathe thirudi vittay  the_selfish_gene

Guru used to tell me to not waste lot of time in mere fiction. Read something solid - that's what his point was. Yeah, it did make sense. But as a beginner to English literature, I was not ready to start anything other that light weight fiction and thrillers.

Lately, in the past few months, I have been reading something really good. (Auto)Biographies or fact-books and stuff like that. Still, I am a beginner in this area. Right now, I plan to read all the books by Richard Dawkins - I will be finishing my second book by him in 3-4 days.

I am not sure whether I'll be able to read a lot once I come back from India. A friend of mine has promised (threatened?) to come and stay with me for the coming one year. He is a special character - very possessive. He wouldn't let me go out, go around with friends, will try to control me a lot. And he is a theoretical computer science freak - he want's me to teach him some math. Well, to teach him, I'll need to learn things first!

There is only one problem with him - he can do only one thing at a time - just one thing. But the plus is that he can do it for hours with good concentration. Need to learn that technique from him. Will keep you updated. It's been a few years since I met him - I am all excited to see him again.

News Update:

  1. 7 courses of German are over. I proved again to be a good student. All the courses were with Daniela - the best teacher I've ever had. Oh boy, if I start to write about her, I can't stop. I want to become a teacher like her. She has promised to come and attend my class - just to see how well I'd do!
  2. In the month of March, I lost some pounds (precisely 5.5 pounds). Now I am back to my ideal weight 69kg. So, operation pot-belly did work. [operation included - biking and sleeplessness ]

That's all for now.
Stay tuned for the same channel - some day some time.. :). Signing off, Ungal Sandeep. :)
