Busy Days...

Have given the first exam on the 1st of this month -- scored 96%. (Not bad eh!) I was also supposed to give an online assignment, similar to the real exam, for the same subject. The marks of the online assignment are also included in the final results, even though it is an "open book test" which can be given from home -- it's basic purpose being to serve as a practice test for the real exam. However, I have been unable to give the assignment so far due to some website issues.

After repeated emails & phone calls and threats to file complaints against the institute in the Consumer Forum (the usual "fighting for survival"), they finally managed to trace the problem as a "server overload" issue! Apparently the data for my batch & the previous batch are stored on the same server... and the previous batch students (whose program validity actually expired in July 2008) have been given one last chance to complete their pending assignments till the 31st of December! No wonder the servers are busy! I finally decided I'll give the assignments in peace starting next month only now!

Apart from this, I have been busy haggling with BSNL (read: "fighting for survival again") to get some wrong billings sorted out... amounting to approximately Rs 2900! The mammoth task stands still incomplete as I type this post! By next week... hopefully... (sigggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!)

Oh and my niece Siddhi (the one who stays in the US) is finally here... for her very first trip to India! I have been busy scouting the toy shops for something suitable for her which doesn't add bulk to their luggage either. I have also been busy shopping for my cousins Rishu & Radhika, who are coming from Guwahati (along with their parents obviously) on the 7th. They'll all be staying at my place! Will be fun!

And now for the "dessert at the end"! Today is my sweetheart's birthday! Today, my sweetheart turns TWO! He is the reason for my renewed faith in humanity... and in myself! It is only because of him that I did not give up on myself completely... only because of him that I was able to see the beauty in life again... and was able to live again! But I'm sure he will never get to know how much he means to me! Yes, there is a party tonight! :-D

Oh and tomorrow brings another birthday... tomorrow "miss_teerious" also turns TWO! I started this blog on the 4th of December 2006... never really believed I'd stick to it for so long... (I have a tendency to get bored with things very easily!) but here I am... and here it is... and we're both "still together... still going strong" (in the words of Shania Twain)!

Gotta go now... still lots of work pending (including studies)! Next paper is on 12th... best of luck Kaddu!
