Just an adage, or more?

Familiarity breeds contempt. This is probably the zillionth time you've come across this adage. With a few exceptions, I must agree that it is true in my case. I don't really wanna explain why it is so, but I'm curious to know from you guys. Is it the same with all of you? Or do you find familiarity a welcome thing(be it people or places)? But familiarity with places can't breed contempt, can it? A penny for (all of)your thoughts, please.

Another good day..

We were supposed to have a class trip on sat, coz we had sports day in coll, which meant no classes, and since we know that we can't bunk and go on a class trip, this seemed to be an ideal opportunity. As you must have already realized by my choice of wording, the trip didn't happen. I blame it on our inaneness.A week before this or so, I'd already registered for the 8051 programming event in the MSRIT fest which was also scheduled on sat, coz I knew Koushik owed me this one.( I agreed to partner him for the 8051 event in Manthan in spite of me being informed on short notice-actually the night before the event) Friday, 10.15p.m: A msg from the class rep-Very sorry to inform you that the trip has been postponed to next saturday.. We then decided to go to MSR, and see if fate would be a kind mistress. Sat: We reach MSR, and the campus is huge. Well, if you happen to study in BIT, any other college campus will look huge I suppose. For about the entire stretch, Koushik was all pr…

Frustration

If you preach something, you should practice it. Else, don't preach.This is in reference to that fact mentioned in class today. "Probability of an event occurring when there are two events in the sample space is 0.5 in a random process". The minute the words came out, I was furious. You bloody don't preach what you don't practice. The person in question went on to say that it is a random process, so the event has to occur infinite times before we compare the probabilities. So, he believes in it. He believes in the fairness of life, and the statement. And yet, my classmates don't feel that there's fairness in the way classes are conducted. I know its none of my business to dictate how people should live, but there are certain basic things you can't violate-the most basic one being your words and actions shouldn't be a contradiction. And yes, I'm gonna put extreme efforts to use my energy in constructive ways than sit and judge him in his class. P…

Morning!!

Morning folks! Haven't been in the habit of posting before leaving to college, but hell, there is a first time for everything in life. That includes the feeling to post something before leaving..Ok, my life isn't exactly happening at the moment. hell, I feel it has been reduced to the mundane routine of attending classes, read in free time-anything other than acads, and sleep for eons.. But, there is something I feel happy about. I'm reading like as if its summer hols and there's nothing else that requires my attention-which is far,far away from the truth-but the joy that I get by just reading is inexplicable..for one, it spares you the nonsensical chatter you tend to have with friends, allows you to contemplate-which I believe I'd prefer than to spend time with company these days.. Infact, I think a few months of solitude will do more good than harm to me.. I was first inspired by the idea of being solitary when I saw the book "one hundred yrs of solitude&qu…
