This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 5; the fifth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.
Frankly speaking, still am clueless of what to write. I have seen humorous, brilliant, touching, empathizing posts. I got this 'so called' idea at 10.15pm. So let me describe the idea behind this post. I have taken this day 5th December and going to describe Shruti - Now(05-12-2009) and Then(05-12-2006). I have written many things in this post in a command format, yeah, the command which I receive from my mind. So develop them and understand.
'Tweet tweet.. get up', that was my alarm 3 years back. Even if I wanted to cuddle up listening to the pitter-patter on the window panes, I couldn't do it. My routine begins or should I say, my mom's day started too?
My routine : Get up - Brush - yoga - take bath - Iron chudi - Plait hair - search college bag - check the time table (yawn) - Take a bunch a A4 Sheets from dad's bag (to write assignments in bus).
Mom : Hey took everything? See the time is 6.25. Just 5 more minutes to reach your stop. Run fast.
Me : OMG!! Yeah.. Dad please, drop me in bus-stop. Driver will leave me if I don go
Dad : Huh, you do this daily. Cant you arrange your bags in the night?
When my dad leave for kick starting the bike, I will start searching my ID card. Huh, tired already
Now - zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz 'Sleep Shruti, you have worked really hard for the past 4 years :D'
Missed the bus in my stop. "Dad, drive fast and chase the bus atleast in the next stop". My dad gave a dirty look at me and accelerated. plan - finish off my assignments in the 75 minutes bus travel.
Finish yoga - Check whether today is friday - If yes, goto music class - Else, goto sleep.
"Shruti, wake up, we reached college."
With stars flying around my head I get up, "W-h-aa-tttt?? I have assignments to finish. OMG"
Run fast - goto class - take observation and finish calculation - Check whether you have lab coat and you have worn shoes - If yes, goto canteen and have breakfast - Else, beg A section friends for all the things you miss.
Turn the next side - Cuddle up and sleep well sweetheart, its just 7.45Am!
8.30AM - 3.45PM
Class sessions - Take notes - chat with friends - Play inside the class and be sure lecturer doesn't see you - check the time and wait for the break - goto lab - try to be silent - Answer viva questions - If you know the answer, reply properly - Else confuse them and make sure they refer the book after you leave the place - have lunch - try not to sleep in Digital Electronics class, If you miss the concept, you can neither answer viva, nor confuse them - wait for bus to start - Chat with bus mates, play games, comment on test marks.
Get up at 9Am - Keep milk and make sure it doesn't spills out - read news paper - Feel for Sehwag - Pray to God that Mahela and Sangakkara Shouldn't be in crease for a longer time - Pray for bhajji, ojha (Spinners do well)
My Sister : Seems u got up so soon today!! Awesome. So what is breakfast and dinner. Don't kill me by the same Idly and Dosa. Do something else for breakfast.
Me : Wait let me give you the menu card. Grrrr... Stupid, I can cook only what I know.
Sister : Sandwich, with lots of cheese
Me : Huh! What?! So lunch?
Sister : hey please do Pulav and Gobi Manchurian.
Me : Yes master :(
Cook breakfast - switch on system - accept comments in blog - Login at FB - Harvest crops - Plow land - Rearrange farm - Search for mystery eggs from Kaddu's or Shreya - Search and wait - wait - goto cafe world - serve the cooked food and prepare new - Check time - search for mystery eggs - pray for a golden gnome or Golden chick :D - ask gifts - Check time - Goto kitchen at 10AM and start cooking real food - Finish at 12 - Pack sister's lunch box - Pray for more mystery eggs - Check score "Damn, Sangakkara is playing well.. Just two wickets before lunch. Ojha, bhajji, act fast. Dhoni, bring in some bowling changes." - Farm - Cook virtually
5.30 PM - 10.00 PM
Come home - have a hot cup of tea - ask mom to get some good snacks - switch on TV and see pogo - Change to CN, time for T&J - Switch channels and listen music - get new themes, ringtones for mobile - goto violin class - chat with friends - fight with sister - eat dinner and sleep well - forget assignments.
Farm , FB updates, write a new post for your blog - curse blogger for its weird actions (Its not showing my friends updates :(. Am missing many posts and all are angry with me :(.) - Check for comments - accept them - Check match updates - "Kulasekara is batting still, OMG, whats this, just 53 runs lagging. Lets wait till tomorrow"
My inner conscience - Vipul and Shilpa wants me to post for blog-a-ton. But how to convince them that I became a dumb-head and nothing pops out. How come Shilpa, Madhu, Vipul and all others think and write well in this topic? Guria wrote about her weird dream. Everyone has something to write except me!
Prepare dinner - think for a concept - Yeah got it - write and post soon - you have to cook and farm - Sleep soon atleast today.
ALL IN A DAY'S WORK
