Life in the US

Life in the US - welcome to the life of Independence

The weather seems to be changing. The color/colour of leaves is changing. Certain things are getting Nasty, certain things like the leafs are getting pretty. The cycle of life goes on!!!

Some old friends came with the change in weather .This year they decided to hang with me. How cool is that - Not!!! I have been miserable with their stay with me since the past 3 days and it’s getting worse. I went to see a General physician so he can drive COLD, CAUGH, FEVER, Allergies away.

@ the docs office - Filled up some paper work which essentially included Personal details, where the hell we live, History of diseases etc. There is one requirement and I ignored it on the first page. Filled out the questioner and last page is where I had to sign for the release of info and willingness for blah blah ... there comes again the item that I ignored on page one.
Emergency Contact:
I don’t know ....whose name I can give. There is no one who cares to come help me in case of a ********* emergency.

My family being some thousands of miles away. No one around to see or care here. I am not sure if there is a good enough reason for why so many Millions of people leave their family / parents/ relatives thousands of miles away and made America their home.

Yes, it’s safe, secure, lots to accomplish studies wise, tons to accomplish career wise, loads to pile up monetary wise. But still they don’t seem to be a good enough reason for me. The life of Independence - this is a great reason for most of the women including me. We are so independent don’t have to depend on anyone. Even while being sick you have to drag your behind to do the stuff that you do the cycle of life doesn’t seem to stop or slow down.

What happens next is History.

Welcome to the life of Independence @ America.

Now I sit back and watch the big apple wind down. Its beautiful and seems so quite.

@ the airport

I leave office on Thursday to come back home in jersey. Everyone around me is so excited they are heading home so they can see their family or their loved ones. Can’t wait to spend the weekend with them. It’s all planned out. Do I understand that excitement? May be I understand it more than them cause I don’t have any such excitement. Thursday or any other day it’s all the same for me. I leave home to go to work same feeling. I leave VA to head to jersey it’s the same feeling.

I head to the airport, to the gate and find me a quite seat I am trying to read my magazine or listen to my ipod. My quite corner is disturbed with phones ringing or with peoples chatter…giving up date to their loved ones or those on the other side waiting for them to arrive. This update is up to the last second the news about the flight delay, the weather at the destination, air traffic control the list goes on and on.

Now we are boarded, it’s time to switch the cell phones off. Come on …people around me still have updates and love to send. We already had enough delay please don’t cause anymore delay. Flight attendant takes this final round so we can takeoff from the jet way. Sir / mam you have to switch the phone off and set it away.

We land at our destination...The second the wheels touch the ground the cell phones are switched on. It’s like you almost go deaf with all the welcome turn on noises of the cell phone. Ah …now that wakes me up …I guess we landed …people can’t wait to run out of that aircraft and meet their you know who!

Does all this make me feel miserable or what? Nothing bothers me more than this. Seems like there is so much effection in this world. Yet I am so lonely and always trying to find the shadow of love so at least I can follow that.

10 reasons why God created Eve

10 reasons why God created Eve ( Females )
10. God worried that Adam{Male(s)} would be lost in the Garden of Eden, because he wouldn't ask for directions.
9. God knew that, someday, Adam would need someone to hand him the TV remote. (Parenthetically, it has been noted that men don't want to see what's ON TV. They want to see WHAT ELSE is on.)
8. God knew that Adam would never make a doctor's appointment.
7. God knew that, when Adam's fig leaf wore out, he would never buy a new one for himself.
6. God knew that Adam would not remember to take out the garbage.
5. God wanted man to be fruitful and multiply. But, He knew Adam would never be able to handle labor pains and childbirth.
4. As "keeper of the garden," Adam would need help in finding his tools.
3. Adam needed someone to blame for the Apple Incident and for anything else that was really his fault.
2. As the Bible says, "It is not good for man to be alone."
1. And the No. 1 reason of all:
God stepped back, looked at Adam, and declared ...
"I can do better than that."
