Summer vacations

Until last year, I’d always had summer vacations. You know, the kind where you get a couple of months off, and you have complete freedom to decide what you want to do. Alright, so my life isn’t exactly tough/laid out in stone, but what I miss is having those couple of months where you don’t have to work, don’t have to study, and can choose to just laze/sleep and generally enjoy your self.

My sister’s in town, with a 6 yr old and a 1 yr old (him being a little tsunami) and every year before this when Api would come to town, it would be completely party time. We’d shop, eat, sleep and generally have a blast. I had no issues babysitting at all since I knew that all the remaining time was going to be spent on mindless pursuits.

This year is different. I know I should work (as my mom says, dollar bhee to kamanay hain!) but I want to have fun and not work. So there’s this constant push-pull between my room and the room where everyone else is hanging out, between staying at home when everyone goes out, or going with them and shopping. Urgh!

I would, however, like to point out that I do realize that my life is as cool as it can get. I don’t have a boss, make great money, have no responsibilities and generally have a ball, but still… 🙂 we always want more 😀

In other news, (Note for Khamba: this is where the Cosmopolitan bit starts) I made an amazing chocolate cake (having just devoured the last of it) last week. Of course, wasn’t a lot of effort since it was cake mix and store bought frosting, but I have finally figured out the art of frosting, so will take up the Chocolate/Peanut Butter Cake challenge once everyone leaves. Got some wax paper for the bottom removable pan that was utterly useless last time I made that cake and realized that freezing the cake and keeping the frosting at room temperature is the way to go.

And in other random-non-related news, I saw Transformer 2 today. After waiting for one year, watching every trailer that came out ten times and watching the first movie a million times I have now, finally, seen it!
