Fifty Shades of Gray

So I have decided to turn over a new leaf. The last few months have been chaotic to say the least: what with too much work, the new mandate and new responsibilities, I had spent a major part of my fast-diminishing youth in the claustrophobic air-conditioned office environment. Add to that, the trips; yes, in the four months in 2013, I have been to three new countries with another four lined up for next month, so travel-wise it’s been a good year so far.
But with all this constant activity, it has taken a toll on my lifestyle: I had been eating out way too much, drinking more than I usually do, having too many chocolates, staying up late and as a result missing out on my early morning jog. In short, my life has taken a turn for the indiscipline, though it has been infinitely more fun.

But then yesterday, I had a public holiday for some reason and I used it to good effect to clean my house, re-organize my kitchen which has been redundant for months now (except the occasional Maggie/coffee/omlette making ritual) and decided to put my life back in order. Going forward, I vowed to give up on junk food, alcohol and other undesirable elements of my life.

Usher in the age of Saint Nefertiti!

Of course, just to celebrate my last day of ‘the good life’, I did order cheese burst pizza, garlic bread with extra cheese and non-diet coke, I did go out and take advantage of the happy hours LIT binge and I did watch the last show of Nautanki Saala, which is frankly the worst movie I have seen since Ra.One.

But then again, when you are choosing a life of gray, might as well soak up the last vignettes of colour while you still can

hey congrats on getting through scmhrd. though if things are same as they were six years back, then I am not so sure it's a good thing, especially the first year! Kidding! I am sure you would love it. and i hope the blog gives you and your batchmates some idea about campus life and also sets the expectations right.

p.s. You would have plenty of such extravaganza moments in scmhrd.

p.p.s now I do know :)
