It’s Sunday night and as I bid farewell to this interesting week of ups and downs (in a sinusoidal fashion) I thought I’d just summarize it here on the blog as well. I mentioned in the last post about the start of Spanish classes, which I was looking forward to, perhaps to inject some discipline in my erratic post-exam life. The classes have begun, and I must say, apart from being hard, learning a language is really fun. The improvisations to churn out a legible sentence, juggling up words and verbs and pronouncing the “rolled-R” (errrrrrrr) is quite fascinating.
Also, I managed to start working on my project, which is mostly reading about stuff. The pace has been slow, but nonetheless, progress is what counts. A commenter asked for the project details which I shall post up soon. In fact, I worked last for three days to make a simple web space to keep track of my project. I will post the link as soon as I finalize it, and that will contain everything about the project, from details to daily progress.
Web development remained one of my top priorities throughout the week as I continued to work on my personal web (and blog), tweaking the designs, and implementing everything that I dreamt about during the exam preparation. Honestly, most creative ideas spring out at such times (when they are NOT required :D).
I’m still undecided on my vacation and home trip plans and this is something that’s bothering me. I really feel the need to take a break, but travelling for eight hours and then a return trip within few days doesn’t sound like a relaxing break to me. Its more like torture in the sky. So unless I have enough days to spare, I don’t think I will be able to go back home and it is pretty sad
Oh, and by the way, I’ve been neglecting the blog quite a lot lately (although this particular is getting most of my attention so you can imagine how others are being treated), but due to a comment by Zafer, I won the blogging incentive of this month So a big hand for Zafer *claps*
The weather is strange - it’s hot! There’s plenty of sunshine, but for some reason I feel that the burning sensation of sun is much stronger here than that at home. It may be the result of experiencing this high temperature after a break, but really temps above 20C doesn’t attract me - I’m not liking it!!! I spent the Saturday at Hyde Park where most of the people were enjoying the sun, and poor me trying to sit under the shade of a huge tree. I had KFC for the first time here on Saturday, since they have put some branches on halal trial. I never liked KFC back home, nor did I enjoy it here. Those guys really need to improve:D
Finally, I applied for a provisional driving license and as soon as I am getting it, I’m gonna take the real test and hit the road (ofcourse I will pass in the first attempt!!).
Looking back, the week was quite good, but I’m anticipating the next one to be even better. Will keep you guys posted.
