Show stopper

Issues, assumptions, and show-stoppers... if you are a manager in some software organisation, they set your heart aflutter. If you are a software engineer, you keep smiling secretly because you can relax till that all-important-entity called the 'client' comes in and resolves them. And if you are blogger, well, you just plain get sad, because you have to put blogging 'on hold' :(

Yes, you got it right, I am going to stop blogging. Why? Because I don't have time. I have to apply to the best possible places, I need to finish my SoP and my Recos, and need to finish a lot of other associated things in the application. If you have gone through this process, you'll know. And the icing on the cake is the AGRE or the Computer Science Subject GRE that I need to take to prove my mettle once again. Oh, I am already getting the creeps because I don't even know the entire syllabus now. To clear it well, I need to study. To study, I need to shut off distractions, and to do that, I have to stop bloggin' :(

I have a number of posts lined up... topics that I have been pondering over for quite sometime, and they will be good posts by my standards. On a sidenote, don't you think that it is these thought-over posts that are the gems of your entire blog? Well, some other post, maybe. My exam is on 12th November, and it is only after that I can come back here. Till then, I will not even comment on your blog, will not read them, and will not also respond to your comments on this post or any other :(( Only I know how much I will be longing to hear what you have to say... it is really a stressful period for my heart and emotions. Please, GOD, give me the strength to be able to turn off the TV when I reach home tonight, and help me drag myself to study. Fellow bloggers, wish me luck!!...


  1. I admire your dedication and your resolve. And I wish you all the very best for your Subject GRE. You know you are gonna rock them just like you did for GRE and TOEFL. In the meantime, keep away from all the distractions(and that includes "soaps" as well). And come back with good news.

  2. Sudipta,

    You don't need to apologize or even explain your absence online. Yes, if it makes you feel better, do so. But remember, your real life comes first. I have always maintained that blogging should always remain a relaxing hobby, not a serious to-do job.

    Wishing you all the best for your upcoming examinations!
