The after effects!!!

I received this SMS from a recent friend and i think it is definitely worth its place on the cyber world.
"When you are inspired from some great purpose, some extraordinary project - all your thoughts break their bounds; your mind transcend limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world, where talents become alive and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamt yourself to be."

I feel great reading this and i feel a great lot better coz someone thought me worthy to send this :)

Now - let us move to listing out the after effects of the 3 months of rigor which i put my mind and body through.

  1. My right eye has been hyper stressed and there are dark marks all over the surface of the eyes :( And both the eyes have a reddish tint to them. There is a permanent irritating sensation in the eye and the bad news is that i have to keep looking at the computer screen all day thru. The good news is that all this is not troubling me much and is actually going away day after day :)
  2. The wrists of both my hands hurt everyday. There were few days in last week where i was barely able to move them, but the pain has subsided a lot these days. I still cannot hold my plate for long when i eat - but I'm slowly getting there. I'm glad that i can hold my spoon all the way :)
  3. I had this consistent feeling of "I'm sick" and it has built up to a good fever today.
There's been so much pressure on the body that it responds this way now. Glad that the weekend is jus 8hrs-in-office away. Will have to go to work anyway tomorrow. Will run back as soon as my little work gets done. Then it will be 2 long days of rest.

I am close to short listing the schools to which I'm gonna apply in round 1. Columbia has already released their application packet and the deadlines. Will have to start working soon i guess. I am still giving myself some time to come out of the hangover of that 750 and, this is more true than the former, these physical after effects of those 3 months.

However we look at it, isn't it better to say "I got sick scoring 750" rather than saying "I got sick coz i dint score 750" :)

I know how shamelessly I'm boasting ;)

Great blog. Just to let you know I'm too impressed by the quote you mentioned here
“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”

The source of this quote(thanks to Google) it seems is Patanjali. Too tempting to use a portion of this quote in my UC essays..hehehe..
