Down and out
Posted by Haris Gulzar on March 23, 2010
I finally have internet up and running in my room after almost a week. Although the past week or so has really been very busy, but I felt as if something was missing. I wanted to write about several things which I couldn’t. I have been out of touch with people I wanted to talk to. I also had a nice excuse for not checking my emails and not doing some of the very important tasks because I didn’t just know I had to do them, but now that I have internet, I just don’t feel like doing anything. I have over a thousand unread items in my reader application, a lot of new emails that are waiting to be replied but I just don’t feel like reading the unread items or replying to the emails…
The past week has probably left me unable to do anything. It has consumed me. Sundays are no more Sundays, and a project for almost each course is just making me go crazy. Besides, the weather is also getting hot. And I think I’m missing home as well :-(. Although it has only been one and a half months since I came back here from home, and its still another 3 months to go before I can even think of going back, but I feel as if seeing my family for some time only would make me feel better, and charged enough to pass the remaining semester.
A question just struck my head. Why are the two Eids only about 2 months apart? :-P. Each of the Eids should come during the semesters, one in Fall and one in Spring. This won’t hurt anyone but would really be beneficial for students :-P. The Spring semester doesn’t really have any occasions or festivals that guarantee a long break. So will it be worth praying to God to make the Eids come during the semesters? 🙂
