Life has become very busy. This space is for me to share my experiences, ramblings and quirkiness with anyone who cares to read them. I'd love to hear your thoughts, especially if you're someone I used to talk to a lot but have lost touch with. Enjoy!

Lately, when I tell people that I go running in the 6 o'clock hour, they say "i'm so not a morning person." It's interesting though, cuz neither am I..or at least, I never used to be. But i realized that when youre working full Have to be a morning person, because there's no other time to do stuff. By the time you get home from work, you're so drained that you cant leave anything for then. Plus I find that running makes me really happy when I'm done, so I'm much more pleasant at work.

My eye has been twitching for two's really annoying me. Someone told me today that it's due to a lack of magnesium. I did some research and it turns out that a combination of lack of sleep and stress can cause it, but having more magnesium, potassium and calcium can fix it.

If you are ever feeling good about getting into shape and need to humble yourself, go to a production office and check out the girls that come audition for parts. I was warned about this the day I started, but I work across the hall from the production office for a new show called the pool guys or something. Anyway all these actresses show up to audition and theyre never sure if youre competition so theyre bitchy as it is. But theyre also equal parts skinny and skanky. It's like they think that your chances of getting a part are inversely related to the amount of clothing you have on. Anyway these girls are tiny and every time i start to feel like i'm losing weight i bump into one of them. Oh well, I guess it keeps me in check ;-)

Taxes suck

Yikes! So I've been working for a few weeks now - I like it here! I've told almost everyone about it so I wont waste time. But in short, I like my job, I like my boss and I don't like taxes. It basically accounts for all the money I thought I'd have to make my life a little bit flexible. I seem to be fitting in quickly, which is nice. I also dont have my own cube yet, so I'm using the conference room attached to the EVP's office as my office. We're like roomies - except for when he's having an executive meeting in his office and I get locked in mine. Oh well, things could be worse :o)
I was in chicago this past week to attend a function we had in honor of my grandmother who recently passed away. It made me really want to move back home. I wish there was a way to move my job there or move my family here. As much as I love the LA weather...I'm not sure that I can stay here forever.
The thing with family is that they're always reminding you of embarassing stuff that you'd forgotton about. My dad is the king of that. He doesnt just do it to me and my brother - he does it to everyone. He's the only guy I know that can make 60 year old men blush.
The good thing about wanting to go back home is that I don't work in fear of being fired. I do my best because I like what I'm doing, and I'd like to do it well. But I guess I wouldn't be too upset if I got fired because then I could go home :-) So it's all very stress free. I probably shouldn't talk like that though so forget i said it. Ok back to work!

The end of leisure.

WHOA! Quick updates: So I'm back in LA. Have been here for a week. Weather is GORGEOUS so Ive been taking advantage of it and staying active outdoors. Unfortunately, today is my last day of leisure. I didnt really really realize how leisurely my life has been the last few months. Granted, I did a ton of stuff...but I didn't really have to answer to anyone besides myself. WHat a wonderful feeling. I set my own schedule to do whatever I wanted. And now that's over. forever. how sad.
But i'm SO excited about starting work tomorrow. A little nervous and paranoid about psyching myself out, but excited nonetheless. I cant believe how well everything came together. Timing could not have been more perfect. This whole experience has made me learn a couple things: 1)Nothing is real. At all. EVERYTHING is subject to change. and 2)There has to be some order to the universe. I dunt know what...but there has to be something. and 3) The human body is a miraculous thing. That one is kind of random, but perhaps I'll get into that some other day.
My friend Bobby invited me to the ROTC navy ball which was super fun. It was a really mellow fun but a really cool experience. Mostly because Ive never been treated so courteously by a man. I dont know if that's good or bad but I didn't even know how to respond to it because it was so foreign to me. Not that I havent been treated well by men before...but it was a different, old fashioned sort of politeness that I'm just not accustomed to. Being the way that I am, I think that if I was treated like that every day Id probably get annoyed and be adamant about doing things by myself. But for one night it was SO nice to have every door opened for me..and somebody just being like that.
I really miss my parents. Not that I'm not happy to be here, because I am..and it's been so wonderful seeing everyone and feeling young again (instead of feeling like a 50 year old indian person)...but when youre home, you're saturated in love. And I'm almost going through a withdrawal of that. I really do understand now why my parents must have felt so heartbroken when I left...I felt the same. But I'm glad to start this new part of my life.
Anyhoo...that's all out of my yapper...I think now that I start work I might have more time in front of a computer and might be able to sneak in some blogging..but I cant guarantee anything...and I probably dont want to get fired my first week!;)
Off I go to take a walk or something..ahh i love having nothing to do!!
