Pappu Pass ho gaya, and now, Pappu vaapis bhi aa gaya. So, the board exam results for my region came out on the 21st of May. I had already prepared my folks for the worst. But alas, the worst didn’t happen. I managed to pass with 74.2% marks. That was totally unexpected. My internet wasn’t working when the result came out so I asked a friend to check it. And when he told me my marks, I flatly refused to believe him. But then I reconfirmed from another friend and meanwhile my father also reached the office and checked out the marks himself. It was indeed true then. Everybody was happy. Even though the marks aren’t great, but everyone was elated because they had never ever expected it in their wildest dreams. The happiness though was short lived because the great Indian lookout for a suitable college had begun. In the past few weeks, I’ve been changing my mind every day. On one day, I’m doing a B.Tech. The next day I’m doing Mass Communication and the next day I’m BCA. Right now, it’s BCA from a college in my own city. That should make me happy shouldn’t it? Nope, it doesn’t because I don’t wish to stay in the city. I wish to go to Delhi. But that will probably have to wait for another year because Delhi University doesn’t have BCA and the exams for Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University are already done. So that precisely is the reason why I haven’t made a post for 15 days or so. I don’t have anything to write about.
My computer’s LAN card short circuited for some reason. Now I have an external USB LAN card. My laptop is now virtually a personal computer. Everything is external and USB. Name the thing and it’s external. The DVD-Drive, the mouse, the Bluetooth dongle, the headphones and all that. Basically this machine is almost dead. I was laughing with my friend that if this goes on for another year or so, then my computer will only be a USB-hub with 10,000 million USB ports for all the external shit that I’ll have. I genuinely need a new computer. I’ve never had a computer with a decent configuration, even this one was second-hand. Considering my interest in computers, an 847 Mhz Pentium III machine with 256 MB of RAM doesn’t make the cut. And add to that a useless CD-Drive, one useless USB Port, just 40 Gigs of storage space and the lamest possible speakers. No sir, I don’t deserve that. So I told my folks that I’ll need a new computer because BCA is Bachelor’s in Computers right? But nothing good in life comes without conditions. So, my parents say that if I get a superb rank in the first college exams, I’ll get a new computer. I’m hoping I do that and buy a new laptop. My current love is the Dellicious Dell Inspiron 1525 which is pretty similar to Lemonade’s sexy red Dell Inspiron 1520. It’ll cost me something around 35k. That’s not a small price.
Also, Guruji Poonam is the new Meme Queen. She managed to dethrone me with 3 successive Meme’s. But I’m not somebody who takes defeat kindly. I’m stealing a tag from her just to prove that Hello, I’m still here. The game isn’t over!

i think:sometimes. When I do, I think too much.
i know: that I’m not a failure.
i want: a Dell Inspiron 1525.

i miss: the fun I had in 11th and 12th. Ah, the days.
i fear: a computer crash.
i feel: lazy.
i hear: the whirring of the ceiling fan. And the laptop fan.
i smell: everything before eating it.
i crave: for KFC’s Chicken Snackers.
i search: colleges. That’s all I’ve been doing for the last 2 days.
i wonder: if I’ll ever be satisfied with life.
i regret: having accepted to take this laptop instead of buying a new PC.

i believe: in myself for 2 seconds at a stretch. That’s the maximum limit of my self belief.
i dance: when nobody’s watching. And when I’m drunk. Which I never am.
i sing: when nobody’s listening. If I do otherwise, people try to not listen to it.
Ugh. I’m bored already. Alright Poonam, you win. I accept you as the new Meme Queen. Also, after reading my own answers, my conclusion is that I’m horribly shallow. :/
That’s all for now. Meow, or rather, Bhow bhow till the next post!
P.S. – I need laptop suggestions. The budget is around 45k. It should be a decent machine, and if it’s aesthetically pleasing too, all the better. For an idea of the kind of configurations I need, check out the Dell Inspiron 1525 (link above).
