Cheers :)

"Please make it cheerful, not like your blog"
-instructions on how(not) to write a newsletter article.

This blog is hardly cheerful. Spacey,whiny, cynical, whiny, lost,whiny and random. Yes to all of that. Maybe I just dont do cheer.

Its been a week since college started. I want this sem to be awesome and fun. So obviously this far, its been morose and gloomy. You know what, this is just going to turn into a whine :| Dont bother reading since I'll just pull you into melancholy's purple depths with me.

Made a random reading list today of books that I will never get over. They're firmly lodged in my system.

1. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
2.The Moor's last sigh by Salman Rushdie.
3.Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling
3.Life of Pi by Yann Martel
4.Vernon God Little by DBC Pierre
5.Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
6.Adrian Mole and the Weapons of Mass Destruction by Sue Townsend
7.The Bone Collector by Jeffery Deaver
8.Diary by Chuck Palahniuk
9. Memeories of my melancholy whores by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

I know I'm forgetting loads here, but this stuff is magic. Get your hands on them and read.

Oh Spidey, this is the poem:

"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely road,
There is society where none intrudes,
By the deep sea and music in its roar,
I love not man the less,
But nature more,
In these our interviews in which I steal,
From all I may be or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe and feel,
what I can never express yet cannot all conceal.

-Lord Byron

HEY, HEY, we're NOT supposed to GET Cloud Atlas, remember???? Now I feel all dejected and let-down =P

I'm reading Rushdie's Satanic Verses and the guy's brilliance makes me want to cry. People should not be allowed to write so well, it's just not right.

Give me tippies for GRE, Your Agginess.
