Post-Birthday Blues

It was a lot less rock and roll than I expected but it was nice. I went out with people and gorged myself stupid. Spoke to family and friends back home, but it has left me feeling lonely and it was with this I am making my final decision.

I intend to leave India. Not immediately but soon. It’s not homesickness as such but I am jealous of what other people have. You know. A life….

I have set my tentative leaving date for 2015. March. One year from when I qualify as a doctor, I will go home. I have missed people too much and I feel it is time for me to be selfish. I want things too and I have hopes and dreams.

Yes, I will have adventures but they will be adventures of the normal type.

I know you are not supposed to tell people what you wish for on your birthday, but I wished to be boring.

I also wished to be very very drunk. Seriously, growing old sober is not pleasant. Ah well….

2015 should give me time to finish up here and leave feeling like I have achieved what I set out to. It is still a long way away, but it is an end and a start.

So what does that entail until then? Well since I am in a Doctor Who sort of mood, I will say this….


Also? I may have to get this for next March.

    I’ve been drunk and I’ve been sober. Personally, I find being drunk is not pleasant and being hung-over is definitely not pleasant.

    I just got one of those. It feels silly to pay so much for a pen, but since it arouses serious geek envy in my friends it’s worth the price.

    Funny, after no more than six months in India 35 years ago I still think of it as the mother country. I can easily understand someone wanting out, though.

    Hangovers are for amateurs.
    Pace yourself, hydrate, and minimize mixing drinks.
    Personally, I set aside a day to relax, have a drink and enjoy time with friends.
    Cheers, as you limeys are want to say.
