Yesterdays

I don’t usually post stuff like this, but yesterday was a weird day.

First there were the mid-term exams, a joke on all of us. The subject was MIS—as boring as it can get. I thought the exam was at 11:00, so I went a couple of hours early to study some. But as I reached there I found out that the timing was 14:00…

OK, I didn’t have much sleep the day before yesterday. There were two exams that day, and there are two exams today. I was hoping that I’d get some rest yesterday.

Now I can’t study anything boring if I don’t need to. So I spent a couple of hours at college reading Zen & the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. When it got too uncomfortable sitting on stairs and reading, I went into the lab and surfed some. I read this great piece over at Fantastic Metropolis, and organized my Bloglines account. Pruned some feeds that I don’t really read…

Then lunch, drinking of some juice and so on. I wasted time till nearly 13:00, and finally studied some. Gave the test, which I think I’ll even pass. Read the book some more on the way back home.

I wasn’t feeling too sleepy, so watched an episode of Buffy—Star World is showing all the seasons in a re-run, daily. Tried sleeping again, but got a call from my sister. She was feeling bored, so we decided to go out.

We went to Cream Centre, a nearby hang-out place. It’s one of those pretentious places that charge way too much for what they give, and have an oppressive atmosphere. We ate American junk food (Nachos with cheese) like it was supposed to be some royal cuisine—that’s how is in India. Fast food here is expensive, and is the ‘cool’ thing to eat.

Finally there was the dessert—the reason we went to that damn place anyway. They serve a special preparation of their own—sizzling brownies with hot chocolate. I can’t really describe it, but it tastes heavenly so I’ll go ahead and try anyway.

It’s pretty simple really. It’s sort of like a sizzler, you have a hot plate on which they give you a slab of brownie. They put a scoop of Vanilla ice-cream on top, and pour a cup of chocolate sauce over it all. The sauce immediately starts to boil in front of you, and the whole thing is too hot to eat without the ice-cream. I burned myself a little while eating it, but it was worth it.

Came home, and crashed like a log. Now today’s Mobile Computing followed by Image Processing, and I’m too bored to study it all. Hence the posting-of-needless-details-in-order-to-kill-time.

Heh-he. Why is it that during exam time, nobody wants to study? ( Not that I want to study otherwise )

Actually a lot of people seem to want to study, even when there are no exams in sight. I never understand those types...
