I had taken a minor sabbatical from the site, but I decided to write another one just out of being vella. Sitting outside, soaking in the sun, reading a book, these are the times of the day when you feel that you can do absolutely anything. And then your mom tells you to go and hang out the clothes to dry…..

Waking up in the morning is a real pain for most people out there, and I’m no exception. The last thing anyone wants to do is have to trudge out in the blinding fog, shivering in your bones waiting for the school bus. But I can’t deny that it’s a bit different once you’re in school, kyunki phir toh sab chalta hain nah? 😉 The value of being with friends is a long drawn out ritual, and it really spices up a moribund day. Of course, it helps if you have a bit of masala to tease someone about, but it’s all hale and hearty in the end.

Oh, and did I mention how cold it is? But no, it isn’t as much as people are crying over it. Yes, the school extended the hols for the Junior school, but honestly, I couldn’t have survived sitting another week at home doing absolutely nothing. At school, the world is at your feet, with conditions, of course. At least you don’t have to wake up in the morning wondering what you can do except sit in front of a laptop doing Facebook all day. Meeting up with your friends, teasing someone about someone, throwing something at his/her face, and generally making a huge fool out of yourself, these are the things that you’ll miss about GBS when you move on. So hold onto that last bit of sanity, cos you have no idea how valuable that is. Senti log hain yahaan par! 😀

I know that this is probably a bit late, but I really enjoyed the number game which broke out during the New Year. Haters will hate, but you can’t argue that it was a whole lot of fun, and it all just contributed to the ambience of the school. It somehow makes us feel more united, and friendships grew a whole lot stronger. People were hesitant at the start, but once you had got the first couple out of the way, it wasn’t a complete disaster. And that’s because you were writing from your heart, about people close to you, people who you want in your life all the time. Bonds grew stronger, you got to know what your friends really think about you, and it was all just a bit different from what Facebook normally is. This is what you want in school; a platform where you can speak exactly what you want, about the people you want. Ask, and you shall be answered.

I’ll just shut up now. I’ve got to get a hang of things again before attempting another blog, that I can see. I’m bloody out of practise, so apologies for that. And for the hopeful 12thies who were hoping to get a clue, I can’t disclose anything about anything on here, so Shhhhsssssssssssssssssssss!
