Hi, Spring break started (at 2pm, to be exact) and I figured such a MOMENTOUS occurrence deserved its own post haha. I’ll update this with how break goes

Happy March of Ides. It is actually the Ides of March, of course, but March of Ides holds special meaning. It has since Mr.Discala’s 10th grade English class, actually.
I miss being so close to friends that I could tell them anything. With college, of course I’ve developed new friendships – very close ones. But still, there are certain reconciliations that come only with time, and the fact that I’ve known friends like Jessica, Kirti, and Nabila since 7th and 8th grade…it really makes a difference.
I miss them all at NYU, despite the busy lifestyles we all have in our own separate college. It pains me to see that Kirti and Jessica have drifted apart even if they’re at the same college. But then again, I look at my own broken friendship to Beverly, and I suppose I can understand.
College has changed us all.
Spring break so far hasn’t been so bad. I’ve caught up on my rest, and haven’t done much. Well, actually, since Long Island’s a bit of a bore without friends to spend it with, I don’t know how much more I <i>will</i> be doing anyway.
[ ] Creative Writing – Fiction Submission #2
[ ] Literary Interpretation – Read "Hard Times"
[ ] Spanish – Do SAM + Handouts
[ ] Work on website
That’s about all I have to do. The rest of the time I have to myself. The sad part though, is that this needs to all be done by Friday! But then again, the busier I keep myself, the less annoyed I get at my surroundings.

So I’m on the way to Stony Brook right now…and despite my terrible touch typing skills, I’m going to attempt journaling regardless. I just spent a….shitload of money to visit Jess & Kirti today, but it’ll be worth it. Or maybe I’m just being optimistic here because I just deposited my paycheck. Either way, I’m hoping I get to meet Jess’s semi-crush today 🙂 It will most definitely make my trip even more worth it, not that it’s a needed incentive. I did bring my own laptop along with me of course, but I’m running low on battery power and have resorted to chronicling my trip via this iTouch’s "notes" application. I’m hoping I have enough fun that I don’t really even need to use the laptop though.
The train departs from Penn Station in a minute, and while I sit and enjoy my ride…I think I’ll rant about a new(ish) show that I have begun watching over Spring Break instead of studyign.
It is not just a doctor show…it is my favorite doctor show. Perhaps because the main character/doctor isn’t as…sardonic as Dr. House, and its attempt at comic relief is actually funny to those of us who appreciate more than just a cold, heartless reportoire of witty and "on-point" logic.
Note to self: The train to Port Jefferson is @ Track 8
The guy who just punched my ticket definitely has a mullet…
Back on track though, Royal Pains does have an Indian female character with quite a prominent part. Ms Divya Dutta is a physician’s associate, or assistant as Dr. Hank Lawson calls her, in the show. Her amazing ability to keep her personal life completely separate from her private affairs is quite remarkable…and she has a forced arranged marriage to a lifelong friend thing going for her as well. It all makes for a genuinely interesting show. And Divya has the CUTEST british-indian accent ever.
It only has one completed season, with new episodes starting this summer, so give this show a shot if you’d like to. Since there’s only been one sesason so far, it’s much easier to catch up with this show than it would be if you wanted to start watching Grey’s Anatomy or Scrubs.
The view from my window is very pretty! I love how my older cousin is now a senior at Stony Brook, and this is my first time visiting the university, three and a half years after he began attending college there. And I’m only here to visit my best friends, not him. In my defense, he’s never explicitly invited me over, nor has he seen my dorm here at NYU. But I see him (mostly) every weekend, so it’s okay. What he doesn’t know won’t hurt him!

I am now on the train to Port Jefferson (Stony Brook being the second to last stop) The conductor (who has the same mullet as the guy in my other train – I swear, it’s a conspiracy) just took my ticket…I’m so sadfaceee I wanted to keep it and add to my Freshman year memory board
I definitely should have sat next to a hotter crowd – looks at boring middle aged people around her – but oh well, more writing for me I suppose. My plan was to finish my second long story for Creative Writing before the end of this weekend so that I can have enough time to print it (and sleep) before class this Tuesday morning. Hmm, I wish I was already at Stony Brook, this commute is entirely too long – the wait before I see Jess and Kir is killing me. Jessica’s like my sister…we’ve been best friends all throughout high school, and college hasn’t changed that one bit. I love her! And I’m super excited to meet her crowd of friends there too. Her new group of friends – the ones that have replaced the old group we were once a part of…I wonder who plays the new roles. Who’s the new Nabila? The new Melissa?
Oops, battery is dying – I’m out.
PS – I have spent the remainder of my train ride writing more of my story (for creative writing) so you, my readers, should expect some nice updates once I have internet access again 🙂
Note: The above passage was written on my iPod Touch during my commute to Stony Brook University from New York University. I have left it unchanged, just fixed the (many) spelling errors due to my fail touch typing skills.
