Chick- Lit, oiled hair and bizarre decisions...

'How Opal Mehta got kissed, got wild and got a life' totally sucks. PERIOD. I can totally understand why it feels so repetitive, even though I have not really read the original from which this book is ripped. There is a sense of deja vu, as you flip pages... and it is really nothing more than your average american high school drama (damn- disney's high school musical was also better) but, the book has its funny moments and silly ones too.
I read it because of the curiosity and the whole hullabaloo that surrounded it.

But one thing that the book really did for me was, stir up a new found curiosity towards Harvard... and in a total bizarre twist of mind... I actually started to apply to colleges for a Masters in law for next year. No, please, don't ask me why this sudden decision.. I have just started with the process- I just hope that I make it to the deadlines, and actually apply.
No- I am still as confused as ever about my life after graduating in Law- This LL.M thing was totally random.

God, Help me!!!
Totally random: I oiled my hair after ages tonight, and pulled them into two tight chotis (pigtails) and as I looked at my reflection in the mirror- I did a double take, because I looked exactly like what I used to 10 years back, when I used to go to school in two chotis and how the only thing worried me at that time was- the school exam result in the otherwise carefree... perfect life.
It feels weird to grow up and even weirder to actually feel the time gap between the past and the present so clearly.

Best of luck for LLM. Hope you do make it. One is as old as one feels. Let us see your photograph in ponytails.

Take care

Oh I used to do that tight choti thing too! Ah, when did we all grow up so much! Sigh.
