2008 - The Beginning

2008's here !!!
And its been nothing but a nuisance to me till date.
The last time i wrote was on ma bday.December 2007 was good as usualFull of parties, and meeting up with friends, and new people.Christmas time was the best ever this year.

Trouble started since the 1st of Jan 2008. Conflicts at home between my parents and me, guilt, fear, thoughts haunting me all day long.. lasted for a few days.

Then came my IT fest SPARK-IT 2008, and I was one of the OC (Organising Committee) members. It was on the 11th and the 12th of January.
I was in charge of the sponsorships, I was mainly handling one of the sponsors- CHIP magazine. We had a deal-- they would print an ad of our fest in their January issue and in return, we would give them 50 subscriptions from our side. They were ready to give us a 50% discount on the subscription cost. I already had so many names with me from the TYIT class and it was also made compulsory for the OC members, hence i agreed to the deal. I got the subscription rates on the day of the fest (11th jan).Once the fest was over, I went around the classes to collect money for the subscriptions and everyone refused to pay. I had TYIT students approaching me after class saying they gave their names out of fear of the professor who was in the class at that time.I was helpless. The CHIP guy is now like- "We can handle 45 subscriptions. If not that, we'll send you a bill of the Ad we printed and you'll have to pay us the same" Great !! I said..75000 bucks , gone down the drain ...Shud have thought of it before.. Donno wat's gonna happen now.

Was also down on health. I had got this infection on the thumb-toe of my left leg. I took it very lightly initially.Later a puss developed and it started spreading in the toe-nail.The pain was excruciating, I would wake up at 3 in the morning holding my toe tight and wishing it would stop paining. Antibiotics didnt help. Finally I had to be given anaesthesia , and my nail was extracted out. Its painless. But believe me, its not a good sight !! Just hoping my nail would grow back ASAP !Fever, cold, loose-motions followed, making it worse for me ..... :-(
Feelin much better now, but I'm really hoping everything sorts out soon.
Crappy New Year, and it's just the beginning.....

Adios Amigos!!
