So a new year has just begun and new beginnings are always hopeful (at least that is what the world tries to tell us :). A happy new year to each one of you. Well, yeah, I guess I can continue wishing a happy new year for the entire month of January. Ah, i know some of you are wondering, how come she is writing this late, well, for me, it has taken this long to realize that the new year has begun and it's almost a month old :P. Here, the new year also means new semester and that means, more to the grind! I have a MUCH lesser load for coursework but whatever I am having is as good as or much more than the previous semester. With the amount of work load- i hope i remain sane (oh, am i now?!).
Sometimes, I feel this journey of studying is very solitary. They say, you will surely have folks to walk along but sometimes, it is not so.. in fact, most times it is not so. It is bad. But the good part is that it helps me know more about myself. Having moved through different parts of India through my school days, meeting different folks at different points in my life, in fact not staying with any one for a longer time, even if i wished to do that, I felt I was strong and will be able to handle change, being alone, the pressure and what not. Sometimes, i think i am not there yet. Lolz! Don't think i will be soon enough be there too :D
Thanks to my dear hubby and a few good friends from both at work and otherwise, they keep me sane and yeah, it has also helped me know who will be there when you need them the most!
This semester, I am enjoying my teaching more than my coursework! The class is a super awesome set of students who are really nice and curious. They are also having it a little later than last sem's timing. As for research front, all i can say is it is still a long way to go!
So, see ya with another post soon...
Let the white flurries keep painting the town but of course, let the cars all drive safe and clean:) Happy nights, morning, noon and yeah, for those on ET happy snowy white evenings!
