At times, I find myself pondering over days gone by, good times, even bad. God, how much has life changed. I feel ancient! There's a ticking bomb on my head and it feels like there's so much to do, so much I wanted to do with my life, but I keep getting weighed down by, nothing, it seems! Just chores, that never seem to end. Anyway, there are some things that remind me of the life I once had - thought I'd just pen them down:

1) Waiting for the school bus on a foggy, winter morning. Used to walk to the bus stop with Mom, dog in tow.

2) Bunking class.

3) Scribbling my crush's name in the girl's loo.

4) Fell out with my best friend in 8th grade. Found her on Facebook after 12 years.

5) English class.

6) My first computer - Compaq desktop, black. I used to love that bulky old thing.

7) Mom Dad and 3 of us sleeping in one bedroom that had the AC.

8) My brother getting married - to our neighbor. 1st marriage in the family.

9) 1st day of college.

10) Hanging out at Barista with my girl gang.

11) Rikshaw rides.

12) The Metro comes to Delhi!

13) Listening to Backstreet Boys.

14) College trip to Goa. Made friends with cute boys on the train, sneaked alcohol into our hotel room, got drunk on port wine!

15) Farewell party. Vowed never to let go of my friends. Never did :)

16) Off to Mumbai. Was a wreck till I got there!

17) Falling in love.

18) 1st kiss.

19) Having maggi at 3 am

20) 1st job. Hated it.

21) Learning to drive. Still suck at it.

22) Breaking up.

23) Rebound trip to Manali - Mom n me.

24) Getting married. Cried like a baby.

Gosh it could go on. More memories than I can handle. Need a breather. I SO hate days like these!

p.s.: being a student again means such things but in this part of the world pasta has replaced Maggi for me!

Nice list. The one that made me laugh was the point about the metro in Delhi. Haha I guess it's like the sea-link for Mumbaites. Well I guess most of us actually just rolled our eyes and gave a sigh of relief that it was ready finally.
