Phew.. wat a hectic weekend it has been.. I won't be exaggerating if i said it has been the most hectic weekend in my life... But it was gr8 fun too.. I met my best friend from school who came from Alabama, along with her husband to meet us.. It was some gr8 catching up with old times n a gr8 sadya (traditional feast on plantain leaf) on account of the mallu new year Vishu. But pity she had to leave on the same day, n it all ended soo soon..
The piercing, ear-wrecking beep of the alarm never troubled me too much as i have imbibed in me the talent to swiftly snooze/off it n turn around n get another hour or 2 of sleep.. However today was a very important day in the history of my life..We had to rush n be in line if i were to take my driving test today... i did do some practise the previous week n my parallel parking was surely exemplary..Though i am used to driving coolly on the known roads when it comes to unknown ones some nervous daemon leaps out.. N even though the instructor took me half way through my known road, sum thing didn't impress her.. This is not as an excuse but she too didn't seem very sweet or nice to me, for she didn't even have the politeness to answer back to my good morning greeting..
N the comments after the test on my sheet said i stopped ahead of the stop sign, i needed practise n that i was slow.. well for the stop sign, yes after coming from a college were our motto was"rules r meant to be broken" it will be a little tough for me to stick to all rules here.. As for more practise yes, i am still confused abt which one is the main road n which is the entrance to some building/parking lot.. Guess i will also need time to shift bet the right n left hand driving methods.. My instincts take me to the right hand driving methods back in India..
Well i know its no use feeling frustrated cos i didn't do exceptionally well or anything.. But guess after waiting from 5-8.30 after my most hectic weekend, she cud ve been more considerate n polite at least.. well yes some ppl can make ur day bad for u..N i need to make this the stepping stone towards success..
So not wanting the stone hearted instructor to steal away the niche of this post, let me tell u abt my happy weekend.. the most exciting things of all was the international gem show here in Houston..It was a twinkling experience.. N mere sight made u feel happy..(i dunno if u find it weird..but thats me..) even though i hadn't planned to buy anything it came as a pleasant surprise when my mother in law gifted me a coral necklace.. (in pic)
There were ivory carvings, diamonds,stones, gems, semi-precious stones.. anything which wud delight a woman.. surely an exhibition worth visiting...
