my mom was making death threats so i got some recent pictures up. just you all know, i really don't think it's fair that you can read all about me and i am oblivious to most of your lives right now. so write because i might not be coming home, because i am home! well...actually i will come back to the U.S. december 10th, but i am tempted to "accidentally" miss my plane and make my family come out and get me. three acm student's families came to visit and mine didn't. no fair!
i think i could live in pune for 5 more years at least. i didn't realize how unhappy i was until started being truly happy about two weeks ago. i thought, "oh yeah, so THIS is who i am and i like it!" i forgot that i actually really liked myself in the past (as in, before india). i'm done with being withdrawn, cranky, and severly homesick. all of my intolerance for some of the people on the program has vanished completely. i've been working on sitar hardcore. a lesson everyday. i'm learning two ragas! and i'm cooking with my ai almost everyday. life is so good. i don't want this to end.
