I think, therefore I write

First taste of freedom!

As I was all excited about staying on my own in Bangalore,it wasn’t as much as I expected.Being in a PG was good for one fact that you had no work to do once you are back from office.So I did nothing in the evenings except for watching movies.However,as time passed,I ran out of movies and had to be too idle to feel good.On the other hand,lack of internet facility strangled me.I thought the PG life would be like hostel life,but a lot of such differences reminded me that I was wrong.So to keep myself engaged,I started baby-sitting for the 10 months old kid of the house-owner ūüôā Not to complain,I had a lot of fun in managing that kid(Hats off to all mothers,it isn’t quite easy).I didn’t roam much during weekends because I know if I go out for shopping,I wouldn’t have a penny in my wallet when I return.Such is my nature(I inherited that from my dad,I think :P).Coming to the food,it was not too good or too bad-Always manageable.Also,the birthday party of the house owner added to one of the celebrations.Except for these,my PG stay was too normal for my excitement.

Hi people

Finally,I got back from the PG to my uncle’s home and I am so relieved that I now can have unrestricted net access.I have got so many things to catch upon.So I will be soon posting my PG experiences and similar stuff.Stay tuned… ūüôā

P.S:For the people following my posts, my first review was “sappa”(as for everyone).

Good to be back

It’s definitely good to be¬†back in Tamil Nadu¬†ūüôā Being at home for 4 days was a heavenly feeling. To my mom’s surprise, I helped her a bit in doing the chores. I was even more excited about coming to college. When I entered college after a month’s absence, I started feeling nostalgic and all that stuff. However, since nothing¬†at college¬†has changed, I consoled myself with the thought that it’s just¬†like¬†being back after a long holiday. For the past 3 days, I have been giving¬†myself the luxury of enjoying life as it goes. Sleeping, chatting with friends and stuff ūüôā Today, I have my 1st project review scheduled¬†at 3.00 p.m and I am not sure if am prepared¬†or not. However,this is not a new situation to me. I guess, I will be getting the usual – “What is the ultimate aim of this project? What is your role? We don’t think this is application oriented. We don’t know how far¬†this will be successful”. So I have mentally prepared myself to take up anything that is being directed at me, with a smile. Also the greatest confusion is about the NDA that I have signed at the company. The people at the company restrict me not to let out anything about the project. However, obviously, none can finish a presentation without giving a few details at the least. So I have just prepared¬†my presentation trusting my instincts. Waiting to see how it goes. Keeping my fingers crossed. ūüôā

Appa varume oru joy!!

I think the title would have, by now,inspired many of my classmates to read this post ūüôā (Those who don’t understand,first get the background news from any of my classmates and start.) On the second day(today) of my intern, at 12.00 noon, I had the strongest urge to shout-“oh god! Who founded Linux”. I had been given a pdf¬†document with a set of tutorials on the first day to go through and understand the working of a software package with which I have to work in the future. I was stuck¬†at the 7th tutorial from the 1st day’s noon till today noon. It was mainly because my working environment is Linux(I seriously resented using Linux only for anti-virus usage,when I was in college and I advise¬†my friends against it). Finally I resolved the problem with the help of a friend, who’s an expert in Linux. And to my irritation, it turned out to be¬†the most silliest problem:( To those who are wondering like-“iva mentor kitta¬†keka¬†vendiyadhu¬†thaana?”, let me tell you one thing, I have no particular mentor. It may sound fun, but it’s not. Because you don’t know if you are supposed¬†to inform¬†anyone while going out for lunch or while leaving, to whom should you ask your doubts and the like(These are the silliest doubts, but still, when you face it, they will eat you). okay. Let me come to the correlation¬†between the title and the post. When I found that i solved the problem and that I finished upto¬†some 17 tutorials out of 23 so fast, I could visualise¬†the situation of¬†“appa¬†varume¬†oru¬†joy” and heaved a great sigh of relief( I am not narrating the parent incident for confidentiality purposes and side-effects of revealing it publicly). Somehow, today I understood what I am expected¬†to do and what “appa¬†varume¬†oru¬†joy” meant! But don’t know what God is upto:) Let’s see;)

My first step into the industrial world!!

Today, when i¬†reported at the office for my internship programme, I was thinking that the office was too simple. But then, after the usual intro with the chief and allotment of project, I could realise that I was wrong. I have been running¬†away from S/W projects all these days and now I get to realise there’s no area without S/W. ūüôĀ My thesis title is “Higher level testcase¬†synthesis for functional verification” (If you cant¬†understand, don’t worry! I still haven’t got the hold of it) I have to work with Linux,C,Verilog,VHDL and another new S/W (This list is for now.. Yet to discover more.) Anyhow, I have to get on with it!!
