Well, well, well. I have not updated this website or blogged in last 5 years. What the hell? I am not sure where to begin or where to end. My life is completely different now. I will try to give a brief summary of what all has transpired in past five years. It’s not gonna be easy but it’s gonna cover all the bases. Let’s begin from the beginning (or more appropriately the end of the era of me being really into web-designing/updating my blog/ this website!) I moved from India to USA, I started and finished grad school, started doctorate and finished it! That was a brief summary of academia part of it, a lot of studying, working on assignments last minute, spending a ton of money and 2 degrees later, I am finally a doctor of physical therapy.
I started working while still in school for doctorate and have changed quite a few jobs since then. I have worked in Brooklyn, New York and then in Dallas, Texas! So in my last update I just said that I moved to USA from India for grad school, well I moved to Indiana, finished grad school, moved to Brooklyn, New York and then moved to Dallas, Texas. Basically, 2 continents, 3 states and multiple jobs later, I am currently working as a PT in a home health care agency in Texas.
Now the really interesting part, well actually it won’t be as interesting as it should have been mainly because I am going to summarize it in a couple of sentences even though a whole book can be written on this topic. I broke up with the boyfriend that I had for the longest time as a kid/teenager and from the era when I when I was into blogging, more about it has to be written but will require too much time and uh.. it needs a chapter of it’s own in that book I talked about. Let me be honest though, I was very unceremoniously dumped. Good thing is that I was very busy with grad school and adjusting to my life in a new country at that time. It did still affect me immensely though. He is happily married now and I just wish him happiness. Well, following that I dated quite a few men, went in and out of relationships faster than the speed of light. Had quite a few “heart breaks” but not really, because I think I was not really into those guys.
Anyway, multiple not so good relationships, first dates, bad boyfriends later, I am currently in a good relationship and at peace with myself. Love really is so complicated and relationships… well I don’t have the time or patience right now to talk about all the bullshit that went through. I will however talk about all this in detail some day… when I get to writing that book.
Right now, at this minute I am in Philadelphia, PA on a vacation. My parents are visiting from India. We are all at my sister’s home just chilling and enjoying our time together. I got an email from someone who used a free layout I had on my website years ago and I was so pleasantly surprised to know that people actually still visit this website. I replied back and though I would finally update, 5 years is such a long time! It’s overwhelming.
I want to write so much but I seriously don’t know how to cover all the updates in my life. I tried to summarize the best that I could.
I will be updating again soon, hopefully. Don’t know if anyone out there is still visiting the website and reading this update but it felt good to talk about all this. I am trying to figure out basic html, cs, ftp, cpanel and wordpress things as OMG I have totally forgotten how all that works and need a refresher course in these things if I want to continue blogging. I am determined to continue so I will learn these things slowly, hopefully it won;t take that long.
Enough rambling, will update later.
