Exams... and an upcoming holiday!

I am in the midst of school exams at the moment - four down, three to go! I've got calculus tomorrow and the Excellence questions are near impossible to do. I'm officially doomed...

On the plus side, once exams are over, there are only 12 days before we leave for India! I think now would be a good time to mention that, even though I live in New Zealand, I was actually born in India and lived there till I was two. This will be our first visit there in four years and I'm feeling excited and apprehensive at the same time. Excited because, well, it's a trip overseas! There's shopping to look forward to, as well as visiting cousins and seeing the sights (we're actually going to see the Taj Mahal this time!). 

But apprehensive because it's always nerve-racking being judged by your relatives, especially if you haven't seen them in a while. Also, I'm not looking forward to facing the poverty that is so evident on the streets and side-alleys. The last time we visited I was twelve and, somehow, I was able to deal with it. This time around, I'm not so sure.

Anyway, the scent of the holidays is growing stronger (yes, in my mind holidays do have a scent) and, even though I still have three exams to go, I'm already feeling excited! 


  1. I think your blogs are cool! I wish my blogs were as interesting as yours!
    PS. You live in New Zealand?! -That is so cool!

  2. Thanks very much for the comment! I'll try and keep writing as often as I can! :)

    Yes, I do live in New Zealand - it's a really amazing country!

  3. Calculus?? good luck. I survived it only because my good friend let me copy his exams during the second quarter, if it wasn't for him, I'd totally fail. :)

    Wow, but you're not half Indian? I love Indian movies, I look up to Aamir Khan and his movies, I worship!! Haha I even wish I live in India. You're so luckY!! :D

  4. Amir Khan is indeed a pretty awesome guy, hehe. Oh, I am fully Indian - my family migrated to New Zealand when I was 2. :)

  5. you're so luckierr.. hah. Pranav Mistry is also cool. I've started loving Indians.. Most of them are very smart and..inspiring. Plus they make great decent movies. <3
