Whoops ..!! I did it .. My friends are eyeing me with jealousy … I am the first in the group now who isn’t a Bachelor anymore ..Now I have an elite position 🙂 ..
So how are you feeling now ..? My friend asked .. I said “Whooops .. On the top of the world !” … It wasn’t an easy task .. I really worked hard for it .. And when success touches you after your toil it just tastes something .. What a bliss …
So … What are my plans for the future ..? Umm.. Plenty !!.. With my new status I will have an advantage over others .. :-p .. After all I am a Master now .. :-p .. Finally I have completed my Masters degree in Computer Applications .. !! The results just declared today .. I got an aggregate of 65 % .. Somewhat less that what I expected but still I am happy now .. 🙂
Owing to the pitiable conditions of our electricity board, we are not getting power in daytime.. That’s why I keep getting less time to work on my blogs .. 🙁 .. Hopefully the conditions will improve soon …
Recently, me and my friend were having a discussion over hobbies and areas of interest .. He asked me what I quote as my hobbies .. I said .. Surfing the Net .. Reading ..Listening to music .. Playing Cricket whenever my old chaps assemble… My friend told me not to include Surfing as a hobby in my Resume .. I asked why ..? He said surfing looks like a lonely act .. It gives the impression that you seek refuge in the Internet and turn your face from the “more social” things.. I did agreed to some of the points but later thought over it .. These are points that came to my mind .. Btw .. I had to bring “addiction to the Net” in discussion to elaborate my points ..
I still remember when I first used the Internet in my life .. It was in a new Cyber Cafe that had opened near my college ..As my friends were busy playing Pool, I was trying to cope with the discoveries that were appearing .. I had used Email on my college LAN earlier but this new technology (WWW) was so much new for me .. I instantly felt the fondness for the Net … I still remember the first website that I opened was Zeenext ( I think its closed now :-p ) .. I created my first email address on that site .. Then I learned that there is far more to the Net than just emails .. I found out Yahoo! which was emerging as the leader in Search technology those days .. I searched and downloaded a Cobol compiler for my studies… which later turned out of no use to me as it didn’t worked on Netware and it wasn’t a freeware .. .. But still .. I searched and prepared my study notes on the Net .. Soon my friends too started finding about the new “fashion’ .. Their favorite websites ..? Of course porn ..:-p .. ( Honestly I didn’t surfed porn cauz it was an expensive deal .. It was 60 Rs. an hour and I could see newest film for Rs 10 at my home comfort :-p .. ) .. My friends too realised it soon and then we started chatting … We used to search girlish IDs in the chat rooms and then chatted with them for soo long .. Soon I realised I can create multiple IDs on Yahoo! and started fooling my friends with girls IDs … It was fun … Then when we were working on our project, I referred to many programming websites for my work .. It really helped me …Then I joined many forums and communities .. (fortunately most of them are extinct now :-p .. ) .. I made many friends and met some of them too … Later I got Internet at home and I started to use it for my studies and chatting ….
