6 AM : Alarm rings with “Go Jogging” flashing on the screen. The success rate of me actually going jogging is a function of – (my energy level, activity performed yesteday night, time I slept, atmospheric temperature, temperature of my room, no of blankets Im under, availability of tracks pants+shoes+tshirt, probability that my Ipod is charged, ipod arm band is nearby and also the entropy of the atmospheric pressure in direct correlation to my enthusiasm level. Result : shut down alarm with a promise of doing it tomorrow.
8 AM : deferred alarm rings again. Realize that I have a class at 9. I do a rough calculation :
5 minutes to get up properly
10 minutes to freshen up and brush my teeth
10 minutes return trip time to the canteen
10 minutes to eat : becomes 15 if friends are around.
5 minutes do nothing to let the morning tea do its magic and get my bowels moving ( this is again a quadratic function of the brand, temperature, strength and extent of relishing the tea )
10 minutes in the loo
10 minutes in the bathroom
so that’s total of 1Hour, if I take just 5 minutes to dress up and 2 minutes running time to get to class then I can actually make it. But wait,
no of loos + bathrooms in our section = 6
no of people waiting to get serviced = 12
avg service time is 20 minutes (best case)
By applying standard queing models you can figure out that I aint going anywhere near that loo today morning. Result : I decide to sleep till 9 and let the crowd clear away, so I can be at peace and actually get my calculated model to work perfectly. I also dont forget to message someone I know has attended to inform me about the intermediate break, so I can go and attend class half way through. Its party to curb the guilt that I have one class to attend and I cannot even do that properly.
9:15 AM : Alarm rings again : follow the schedule and get most of the things done.
10:15 AM : My wing man messages me saying there is a break
10:30 AM: Sit in class for the next hour and wonder whether the morning blues were worth all this trouble; a class that I dont like ona subject that I already know.
11:45 AM : class is let off and our gang of boys, whoever is present of course, go for another round of tea.
12 :15 AM: Back from tea. Do some worthless mail checking and awesome RSS reading. Get spat on for sharing too much on my reader. Feel bad and decide not to share anything anymore. Read something cool and automatically press Shift + S.
12:30 AM: reports are that God is on the prowl.
12:40 AM: God is close by. Perform an emergency evacuation of the lab or some other diversionary tactic to obscre ourselves from the world. Recent attempts have also involved hiding behind a forest.
12:45 AM: You can t dodge God. Get asked to meet him at 2.
1 PM: Decide to go for lunch.
1:25 PM: People finally respond to our calls and get their asses out of their chiars.
1:30PM :Start eating
1:45 PM: finish eating
1:50 PM: Decide between going back to the room and sleeping or going back to the lab and working. Devils that pull all the SAP out of us are already conspiring about their next trip home. Decide there is too much to be done to sleep and go back to the lab.
2 PM: Play 8 bit simulated video games
2:30 PM : get drawn into playing the viral VT.
3PM : try dodge God again but in vain.
3:30 PM: decide to work at 5and go back to room to sleep
7 PM :wake up and realized you overslept.
7:15 PM : Curse Dr Morgan for the damn internet connection at hostel and then check mail again. Read some RSS.
7:45 PM :decide to start working but then realize we are only going to be interrupted for dinner calls , so waste time by surfing net
8 :15PM: wondering why no prick has called for dinner, search for the gang. Result : gang has deserted me and gone for dinner already. With hurt sentiments and mild depression, head out to the canteen alone. See other groups of friends laughing at something really stupid and realize what an outcast I am (feel gratified about the stupidity of the topic that others were laughing at).
8:30 PM: feel like a stranger walking to the dinner table.
9:00 PM : go back to room to get jacket and laptop and head out to the lab.
9:30 PM : get into some mindless arguement over why open source sucks and hold onto my point.
9:45 PM :rip on some unsuspecting soul.
10 PM: Realize that there is some immediate deliverable tomorrow morning, like an assignment, report or a presentation.
10:15 PM: fight over who should be doing what.
10:30 PM: finally start some work (which is not the work that was supposed to be done from morning)
12:30 PM : realize is two hours and there is a lot to do.
12:31 PM : Coochie coo
1:30 PM : Coochie coo
1:31 PM : realize I just spoilt an hour coochie cooing
1:45 PM :yawn
1:50 PM :Yawn over and over again
2 PM : realize that the shawdy piece of unfinished work is actually good enough to manage a B the next day.
2:15 PM : Slow walk till the room
2:30 PM: to self : “tomorrrow is a big day and I need all the sleep I can get, Plus there is the jogging in the morning . Good night man. It was a fruitful day.”
