Going Back to School
Since August 2010, I have had a newfound love for books.  Not for novels or literature but academic books.  The last year, it was mostly books for competitive tests and when I thought that I wrote the test poorly in February, I was summoned for an interview in March.  March 2011 was turbulent, really.  Among other distractions, I did attend the interview after travelling 7 hours on an airplane and spending 4 at airports.  At the interview, I was flustered.  I thought all was over until, in May, I received an offer letter for admission.  Given the calamity, my family went through over the previous months, the only thoughts that passed my mind at that time while reading the offer letter were those of destiny or some similar crazy sentimentality. Since June, I am poring over books as never before, trying to meet assignment dates, getting frustrated not meeting mean class performances, but coming out only thirsty for more.  The demand is much more than I can give right now, but the feeling of being challenged is amazing.  The next two years are going to be tough, I know. It is great to go back to school.

Sounds good! Not alone - we were a group of eight.

Congratulations again and again! :) And props to re-starting journal writing again!

(Since we're at it: congratulations to me as well, because I too am back to school!)

Lately I've been considering moving off livejournal. Been throwing things at a wall, to see what sticks. I do totally miss days of livejournaling with wild abandon, especially now that I'm going through this whole new set of experiences and learning. Not having written memories, not sharing those with my people -- this is a net loss.

Congratulations and celebrations!

I have been mulling to move out of LJ too. Almost everyone sane has moved. I mean I can't leverage sentimentality all the time. I was thinking maybe get a website. Will converse with you over email about this. You know what, when we started LJ was our FB.
