The news news!

You know how in English, we tend to open conversations by saying “what’s up?” Does anyone know how you actually answer that? Saying “good” doesn’t really make sense.Bengali (my native language) has a similar greeting - Ki khobor? which literally translates to what’s the news? And I never know how to respond. I’m good? Just got done with work? I usually say “no news” but that does tend to kill the conversation. Yeah...I tend to kill conversations like that....a lot!
Anyways. No news here. I am kind of sick, sore throat, slight temperature, the whole nine yards. Im also really stressed about school since it is my last semester and all. I have PILES of work to do and since I'm a big procrastinator I keep on piling up more work.

So yeah..thats it for today.
P.S. Photo of the ducks taken by my best friend Pian Kazi. I have a thing for ducks...but that's another blog post!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I have so many things to be thankful for this year even though at times things got really rough. I am going to my friend's house for dinner today and she makes the yummiest food in the whole wide world! Oh here is my favorite Thanksgiving dessert recipe. We made it last year and it was a super hit!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

P.S This video really made me smile today!

Life Lessons

It's early monday morning and I am now in the process of slowly being pinned down by the millions of thoughts hovering inside my little head.

Things that I have learned in life the hard way:

* You clean a little bit of your room everyday - throw away the unwanted, the 'lingerings' or the trash (in other words), your life will be so much easier.

* Do not fall for the adverts - especially the tearjerker telecom ads that they show on TV nowadays. You still have to pay.

* Time does not stand still. NEWSFLASH: The clock on the mantel - is broken.

* Fairy-tale princes DO NOT exist. And I repeat DO NOT. White horses do, however.

* There is no such thing as a 'tomorrow'. So start working NOW!
