I love u 19!

You were the best!!!


March 18, 2007


I just don't know what to say! I mean I'm so pressurised from every corner of this universe! A 7 day working week is sure to get into your nerves, right?! So you get the drift? Well I feel like tearing my hair out and killing myself. This is annoying.. SO much work keeps coming that I feel I'll explode any moment! :(

I'm happy in life and things are normal. But the Workload is ENORMOUS!!! haiyooooooo!!! :(

It's unfair... WHY should I have to suffer soooooo much with work?! An 8-storey office cum shopping complex with restaurants and a country club to design in a week is asking for TOOOOOOOO much!!! X(

And to top it all silly, insane, foolish, dumb me is irritated with EVERYONE for the least of reasons! Everything seem to trigger off a stream of shrieks! I yell and scream(atleast mentally!) at the slightest of provocation!

I also don't like this week! My birthday, submissions, 2 weddings, a lecture, CAD classes,college, solar eclipse etc!!! And every event HAS to take place at the diametrically opposite ends! I'm gonna end up fainting in some remote corner of the city!!!

URGH!!! I seem to be irritated!

Late realisation!!! X(

GOD!!!! Gimme my month-end break soooooon!!! I want it to come faster........ :(
And then....
I'll come back rejuvenated!!! :D

P.S.1: The MISERABLYDISMALHORRIBLETERRIBLESTUPID performance of the Indian team has also DEEEEEEEEEEEPLY contributed to my state! :(

P.S.2: And the fact that Pakistan is out of the game... and EVEN if India gets thru to the Super 8, there WILLNOT be an India-Pak encounter upsets and makes me wanna cry!!!! :(((

Smiles :) :) :)

Could I smile a li'l more?
Now that the joy has returned
After miles and miles of dry dirt
The tides have now turned!

I see, in every nook, a shining star
Awaiting me with open arms
I see sun joy laughter bliss
Oh! The world has renewed its charms!

A million new dremas have woken from their buds
And all those old ones have been dusted and cleaned
Life once more, is on a rhapsodic song
Everything is lovely and beautiful, indeed!


A bitter-sweet Symphony...

Could I smile a li'l more?
Now that the joy has returned
After miles and miles of dry dirt
The tides have now turned!

Continue reading the poem at Dryad Songs...

:) :) :)

This is to formally announce that The Dreamy Dryad has returned to the extreme state of normality after a whole 3-5(lost track) months of total hell!!! :D

And now I realise, as we always do only later, that I complicated my situation, made myself feel worse than I deserved to feel! Life's like that, I guess! We feel better about mishaps/bad moments in retrospection than when we actually plough through that ill-fated time! :)

I realised,also, that life's ironical in most places and it's a sort of taunt from God telling, "I gaveyou all you asked for ultimately. I may not have given it to you when you most needed it. But yes... I GAVE it! Now... take your pick! Either go for the 'new situation' that your mind has settled down for, or get back to the 'dream of dremas' that you'd always wanted."

But well, the 'dream of dreams' has lost its flavour for me... A single wrong move in my part had tumbled it all down... my castle was washed off by unwanted tides! I lay shattered, crying, depressed and disappointed. Then a new floating boat came... frolicking, merry and with a promise of a safe happy journey. I left my castle and took the boat. The boat wanted me as its pasenger unlike the castle, which said it had no room for more! I took the boat...

And now... a golden castle... much similar to the one I created is asking me to come take up the throne. My heart aches... that I can't go back. I want to... but I can't. I fear the castle will ruin me... will make me lose all self-respect, happiness and smile! I stick to the boat...knowing that there was a castle I could haveentered...but my boat was more precious! :)

Mad story, you say???
Well... It's EXACTLY what happened to me! :)
Now... no regrets. The boat is where I shall stay!

Good bye Ahmedabad... You shall stay as a fond unfulfilled dream... just like so many of mine remain! Never know how MANY more will get your fate... but yes... life teaches you how to handle broken dreams!

Good ol' Chennai... I stay in you... you've made me what i am today... Even though I want to go away from you in search of 'new greens that are to be seen', my next 3 years are to be spent in you.

I'm sad... that I'm growing up...buckling to the wishes of the surrounds! I want to travel... live somewhere else all my own- where no one has any preconcieved notions about me- and find out WHAT I really am?! I feel now like a puppet in many hands, sometimes!

Life keeps turningaround bends... Let's seehow many more bends are in store!

Here's wishing me a Happy 'Last few days in your Teens'! :D I'm not too keen on turning 20! Nothing can be as precious and as eye-opening as your teens! And now... I'll be leaving them forever. It's bitter to be growing up. Finalities approach quicker... I wanna live my life.... not sacrifice! hmm... Let's see... A new journey begins this March 21....

I've matured a lot... learnt a lot... and well... I'm happy this present moment with the bundle that God has given me! :) I wish life'll continue in this nice sweet way! :)

Good Luck Dryad! Be yourself No matter WHAT the world dictates! :)
