I know it's been quite a long time. Funny thing is I can't say I had been busy; cause I haven't. It's been one of the free-est couple of months of my life. And I can't seem to decide whether I'm loving it or loathing it.

Having quit ABN AMRO Bank in August, I landed up here in Accenture and heaven knows how relieved I am. No more sales calls, no more TARGETS, no more humiliation. I'm by myself, so to speak. As I mentioned earlier, I'm looking forward to using my grey cells here instead of the parroty sales talk.

Now, being free is more than a metaphor here. Literally speaking, I am not on a project currently, so I'm free; and figuratively speaking, I'm free from all the hassles I just described. I like it here. Made some friends, have the weekend off, do NOT have to wear a tie everyday etc. What? You call this cool? Wait till you hear the other side.

I get up every morning at 7 now. Not for exercise, to catch my cab @ 7:40. It takes me 1.5 hours in the morning & 2 hours in the evening commute. That's just one of the downsides here. Being chained to your desk for long does mean an onset of obesity & lethargy. I'm bogged down by the latter; trying my best to stave off the former.

The other downer is the paucity of time to kill time; know what I mean? Not knowing what to do with time on your hand is such a waste. That's why to kill time, I started trading on the markets. Needless to say, I traded my money in the markets with experience. Having lost quite a lot on speculation, I'm trying my best to turn my mind away from it. But what do I do?

Getting up early for catching cab was one of thing that bothered me a lot. That's so stupid isn't it.

Anyways, are you still on bench?? lucky fellow, I always wanted to be on bench for while :P, but never got any chance in long 2 years.
And yes man you have to get the right pronunciation. And I remember how tough it was to tell ppl to how to pronounce it ;).
