Home-coming... wait!! lets rewind...

Finally, m at home aftr a long n hard sem.... d back-breaking train journey dint help either... d cold here is stiff... one shivers even during daytime.... anyways, over to d review of my 3rd sem....
firstly, i was given an elective of Effective Public Speaking... d teacher also hails from d same place as i do.. n if u think dat gave some edge ovr othrs, u cant b more wrong... she simply hated me... mayb bcoz i was a loudmouth or simply bcoz i suck at public speaking... d worst thng abt dis class was impromptu... hw d hell r v supposd to maintain posture, voice-modulation, eye contact while thnking up wat to say next in order to keep d ppl engaged? our last cls tho, was a bundle of joy... v ate,sang, walkd d ramp, threw d most idiotic questions at our teacher(one student even askd her to narrate her love story O.o)... n guess wat, she cudnt speak 2 minutes on d topic dat v gave her- Hawda bridge par latakti laash :P
Apart frm EPS, dere was waves 2010... waves is supposed 2 b our cul-fest... however, it was more of a taunt on our face, wat wit d ever-yucky shafqat amanat ali concert or d much-hyped waves ball... plz dont ask whether i went to d ball or not :x
hav so many complaints bt i cant write thm all or d few ppl dat read my blog may get offended :|
Thn v had d computer programming course again... I fail to fathom- Y D HELL R MECHANICAL PPL MADE TO STUDY COMPUTER PROGRAMMING FOR TWO WHOLE SEMS? our college ppl seem to hav mixed up d course structures... CP-I had already ruined my life in 2nd sem... now CP-II made sure i will always hate those white thngs wit keys n mouses....
Moving on, Technical report Writing(TRW) was my fav course dis sem... our teacher was a sport... she usd to join in while v made a rucus in her class.. i attended evry class n d tests were done in full co-operation... our grup was one of d best in presenttion and grup discussion...no wonder i got a gud grade in dis course ;)
Lastly, dere was Zephyr '10... d inter-hostel fest... v participated in every event n won top ranks in many... I walked d ramp for d 1st time n thoroughly njpyed it... here's d pic


V had a lead on day 1... however, due to some nasty manipulations of a guy from our neighbouring hostel, who was too insecure to play honestly, our hostel was ranked d 3rd overall.. Wats d point of competition if u cant even b honest abt ur abilities?? n d person who did dis was sum1 whom i had much respect for... anyways, ppl hardly ever r d same as their words...
These were d highlights of my 3rd sem... meanwhile all dis, v were still having fun,beating ppl, disturbing d nerds, waking up d nights n eating... also, v found a really nice adda for all our "illegal" activities...

Amen!!

The lift dat was...

Hey frnds.... really sorry i've been away so long...
a lot has happened wit me ovr d past few months...
d 1st incident dat comes to my mind is dat of a trip in which v travelled in every mode of road transport :D
Yes, dats rite.. N in a single day.
firstly, v left our campus n had just strtd on d highway whn a very kind elderly fellow allowed us a lift on d nearest bus-stop(which, btw, is 7 kms far!!)...
V exchanged the usual pleasantries... d best part was whn he asked us for tips to educate his daughter in engineering ;)
aftr dat, v had a long bus ride to panjim which nearly drove us crazy... party over, v left panjim around 9pm n boarded d wrong bus which took us to vasco n left us to rot on d road... v strtd our usual road dance n monkey tactics to avail a lift but strabgely, nobody seemd interestd dis time.... v abused d passing cars, smoked(not every1, mind u!!), peeped into d roadside houses, waved rude gestures at d balcony mongers and disgraced our college name in every way possible :D
finally, a truck stopped n v climber aboard... it had no room for d five of us, bt v climbd in anyways...
d driver, a fellow called sonu, sang songs n cracked lots of jokes... it made us think, help always comes from unexpected places in a most extraordinary manner... had v been 10 mins. more late, our parents wud've been called n told abt how spoilt their sons r :P
anyways, dats all abt our trip...
I'll share more wit u in d coming posts, 'coz rite now my exams r on n i cant risk getting any lower marks..
