When did that week go by ?

I'm seriously confused, what happened? Students here seem to be suffering from an acute case of temporary amnesia (ok, "appologies" for the bad paradox). But it's true. With the kind of workload one witnesses here, the day is over even before you realise it. You're just caught wondering "What the....??", and before you know it, you've faced 5 lectures from 9.30 am to 5.15 pm, with a 45 minute lunch break where you spend 40 minutes editing documents, reading cases, preparing for quizzes, borrowing books required for the next session and the remaining 5 minutes having lunch with whatever is left on offer at the Mess (for once the Englishmen got this one right, 'coz it sure is a messy affair having lunch at one).

Suffice to say that I'm dead tired right now and really would appreciate just going off to sleep, but don't see that happening for a couple of hours since I still need to drudge through 2 cases that have been assigned to us, not to mention the presentation that I'm supposed to make in the "Analysis of Cases and Written Communication Class" tomorrow..... And oh, I've omitted the Financial Management presentation my group is supposed to make on Friday. Gosh !!

As expected, this has taken a toll on me. I don't think I've become thinner (most people who look at my thin frame don't think I could better my own record), but yes, I've almost become an insomniac and can't get myself to sleep before 6.30 in the morning, which results in just 2-2 1/2 hours of sleep in order to get ready for the classes.

Moreover, my personal life too has been victimized. I last spoke to "her" on Monday. Couldn't speak to "her" either yesterday or today (I'm still counting 'today' as Wednesday, though technically speaking, it ain't so). Sad...real sad...especially because I wanted to tell her that I dreamt of being with "her" just today morning during the precious 1 1/2 hours that I slept. What's worse, I think my SMSes have offended her.

On the other hand, I'm really fighting to keep afloat as far as my studies are concerned. I know, I know...everyone tells me the same story. I am from a Commerce background and I should be finding the going relatively easier as compared to the engineers, but the truth is that I am lagging behind.

I know this sounds like a real sad post, but it isn't helping that I've been feeling terribly homesick the last 2 weeks. I can only dreamily-eyed see my room back home in Calcutta, all while the prof. tries to explain what 'penalties' are to be allocated while considering the cost of sending 'x' no. of goods instead of 'y' no. of goods from location 'abc' to location 'xyz'....

Do I not sound like a worry-bag ?? Extremely sorry for this post, but had to let go somewhere...
