ICICI is Awesome!!!

Finally, there’s something that gets a good review from me. They should be proud of themselves!!! :P

It was tentatively decided almost two days ago that we would go to the CA Institute to submit our examination forms; and I had my exam form delivered to my place around last Thursday (courtesy Sandeep :D). So any normal person would have been ready with everything that they required by Monday night at least. But for someone who is as lazy as I am, leaving-things-until-the-last-moment reaches new levels really.

Reverse Poker... ummm... What???

Yes! It is exactly what it sounds like. Not the game per se, but the procedure of betting.

Suddenly, out of nowhere all the people in the group (excluding Aditya, Sandeep and me) have started enjoying playing poker. I have tried to understand how that works, but it’s something beyond me (like I already don’t have a lot of jargon to remember than having to learn about what ‘flush’ or ‘royal flush’ or a ‘full hand’ is… I think these are the terms that I heard everyone using and I hope they are used in Poker, or else this is as close as I am to bullshitting); so I didn’t bother further.

What I did like about Poker, was the conversations that happened when everyone was playing, the jokes, the pulling of each others’ legs and of course, the swearing; and that kept me tuned to the game even though it was the others who were playing, I was just watching and was not able to make head or tail out of the damn thing.

Has this happened to You???

People, who know me, know me as a lively person, who keeps chattering and goes on and on even hours after people stop listening to or caring about what I’ve been saying. Obviously that’s the truth, but only partly. Recently I have discovered another side to this chirpy-talkative personality, and it has shocked me to my very core. Before I go on to that, let me give you a background about the way I am.

I obviously talk a lot (not immediately when I meet someone new, but once I’m familiar with a person and have spent quite some time with them). I love listening to loud music – my stereo must be tired of playing songs from all genres at such high volumes that right about now, it’s happy to be resting for a while. When I’m not doing anything else, I’m almost always on the phone talking to friends – if not discussing recent events in each others’ lives then reminiscing (because I always have something to talk about and it is not imperative for the other person to participate in the conversation; just fueling it would more than do the trick).

There's Someone Else

I knew you’d eventually figure it out, but I have to confess anyway; make my guilt go away even if just a little bit. I feel terrible, and I don’t know how to break it to you. You must’ve noticed that I am spending lesser time with you over the past few days; and yes, I have someone new in my life.

I don’t know how it started, but I know that I have been a lot happier since then. Maybe it started when I realized that I was complaining a lot about all that’s wrong. You were always there – my confidante, my friend and my shoulder to cry on. You listened to me like no one else ever did, you understood every word I said; every emotion I felt, you were there for me whenever I needed to talk; let my innermost feelings out, I never had to think about what to say or how much to say; and in that aspect no one else can ever be compared to you. But I was tired of complaining, tired of all the things that I was doing wrong. That’s when I decided I needed a change; and that’s when I found him.
