I read in a post of yours that this was your last semester? You might miss school once its over. So soak it in.

Ro said...

Iday said...

Thathaasthu :)
I mean, for each one of them!!!

If i make a "I want to" list, i'd make a much longer one.
Been slogging with this MBA apps thingy from Feb this year, non-stop :(

Hopefully, very soon - i'll have a reason to throw a huge party.
Bhai's invited of course :D

For a change, i'll sponsor ur tickets ;)

Indianarchie said...

And I did, take that!

Sudipta Chatterjee said...

Aayega, aayega.. bhai tu abhi padhai pe dhyaan de... dead body apun leke aata hai ekdum imported!

Don't worry sayesha: if you have been able to live through this so long you can survive some more! All the best!

Lizabeth said...

Hum...
Methinks that you want to do a lot of things. Hah... But I would suggest you to do a few things per week like take leave for the weekend, wake late. You know, some things that can go together and not be irrelevant. I have a good holiday for two days and I got out of bed at 12:30 in the morning.(I woke at ine but read Harry Potter in bed):D

bellydancer said...

are you really quitting....? :(

Rohit Talwar said...

Dude, you serious?

But you obviously know better. Uni finals or something?

Hari said...

"No actually, I want to quit.

So I can fall in love with ...


a guy who sweeps me off the streets of Singapore with his signature style and charm..."

sounds a better way to end the post!

PizzaDude said...

You SHOULD spend a weekend doing absolutely nothing. Its total bliss!!! especially if you have been very busy for quite sometime.

Bhaarat said...

Just marry a rich person and and I beleieve most of the things that want to do will become very easy.

Cheers
Bharat

shub said...

Somya said...

awesome list..well I think you can add one more..I want Indian cricket team to win for a change.(coz one cannot watch anyother channel during the match and then you have sit thru the match with a disgusted look coz of their pathetic performance-This sentiment is a result of yesterdays match Ind Vs SA that I had to watch).

Somya said...

Waise try taking a chutti for a few days rather than quitting...it works believe me. Even I was becoming pretty irritable so planned an escapade to shirdi. It was rejuvenating and now I am back to work n ready to slog.

naari said...

Thakur, kitne exams hain? Jaldi khatam karo..

Maverick said...

are nanhi si jaan aur itne kaam...
bhai best of luck

Anonymous said...

Believe me, after you exams, all you'll manage to do is I want to sleep. ... Atleast, that is how it used to be after my exams... :)

Chill and All the best... :)

*Hugs*

The Smiling Girl said...

The Smiling Girl said...

Yep.. also to visit my blog a bit often!

Tarun. said...

Never imagined reading the sentence, I want to quit.

Quit what?

Anyways ....
whats the top priority in that list?

Kindly pick one only.

Raam Pyari said...

few lines from my fave poem:

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and debts are high
And you want to smile,but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing down a bit,
Rest if you must,but don't quit.

Success is failure turned inside out-
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you can never tell how close you are,
It may be near and it seems so far,
So,stick to the flight when you're hardest hit-
It's when things seem worst that
You must not quit,

Restless Rain said...

Oh no wonder u were talking about your plans and changed subject....
I can't believe it though. Think it will take some time to sink in.

Bivas said...

I want to be done with studying for life
But that's the best part of life...trust me...i still yearn for those days!!!
Vacation plans abhi se!!! wow

Angelsera said...

I feel like someone spoke my mind!
atleast most of it...atleast u r done w exams :)
I still ve one to go :(
but tis my last last one!! :D

Girl next door said...

Hope your wants come true. When is the big question. It's hard to sacrifice so much but it's supposed to pay off in the end (so they tell us).

Some days, I wonder what would happen if I just walked away from my life with all it's stresses. Tempting, but not practical.

Hope you get a break at least. Hang in there!

Harshi said...

And I want to have Sayesha have alll these wants :-).

Sash, I realized my list of wants might have things like not always taking a leave when not feeling that well, and trying to be more disciplined and wanting to stop doing nothing....lol. Please take it slow Sash. Yes, be easy on yourself.
