it’s weird, i haven’t “blogged” in ages..but as soon as i see a major exam heading my way (philosophy paper in another 2.5 hours) all i can think about it the hundred things i wanna post about…

had the weirdest conversation with one of the LUMS drivers today. i’ll start from the top – went to then bank to deposit a check – sara offered to drive me off but had to go on home so couldn’t drop me back to LUMS, but just as i got out of the car i met one of the LUMS drivers paying some bills. LUMS gaurds/drivers are something of an institution – you can always converse with them about anything from cricket to bad weather to cats to banks. anyway – sweet man that he is, he said he’d wait till i was done and then drive me back to LUMS.

so on the way back we talked about the earthquake, the effect it had had on his family (they’re living in 2 tents), about the LUMS students who went with all the relief goods and stayed at his place, about the convocation and how zainab k won’t be around to arrange it this year and finally about LUMS – more importantly – about how it isolates the “LUMS society” (which includes everyone who lives on campus, including the gaurds, drivers and even faculty) and how we’re so caught up in our own lives that living in LUMS is like living in a bubble. weird.

anyway, come monday and i’m outta this place till the 4rth! will be back for one WHOLE day before i leave for SDC in karachi on the 6th and return on the 13th! I BELIEVE! or so the conference theme states! should be loads of fun (and serious work!) – so many ppl to catch up with!

    good luck in ur exams-as for blogging, I haven’t for a long time either. You can sleep for 24 hours straight? I can sleep for months, I think they call it hibernating
