The past two weeks were long weeks as usual. Good as well as bad happened during the days starting from my friend's kidney stone to meeting two of my school friends. Let me disclose the good ones first.
We have completed the first technology(Oracle) in the training and from tomorrow we will be learning Unix. All of us in the training completed the second test successfully. The test was not scheduled in the syllabus but still it was conducted to test our knowledge. The funniest thing about the test was we were preparing a lot for the test and at last we were given only ten multiple-choice questions and most of us scored full.
I met two of my school friends (Nivas and Jayaramachandran) near my office yesterday. I should not say I met them they identified me and stop the car and came to me. Then we headed to Nivas's home spent some time there. Had evening snacks and coffee at his home and after sometime Jai dropped me in a bus stop near by from where I caught the bus to Chrompet.
On Wednesdays we have something in the training called as 'Future Leadership Club' for one hour in the afternoon. I have been compering or in other words anchoring for the past two weeks and have got some good responses which makes me feel happy because I am new to this kind of activities. Next week I am going to speak about blog for 5 minutes in FLC.
Last Saturday I had to eat lunch at a hotel that is near my office because the cafeteria at the office will be closed on all weekends. After having my lunch I went to the cash counter to pay my bill. I ate a meal and it costed 55 rupees. I gave 500 rupees to the guy at the counter who was busy in a conversation with one of the staffs in the hotel. He asked for 5 rupee coin and I gave him so that he would return me 450. He missed his calculation in the conversation and returned me 500 in hundreds and fifties. I counted it, put it in my pocked and walked out as if nothing had happened.
The bad thing that happened was the kidney stone to my friend(Lingesh) who got admitted in hospital for a week for treatment. He is fine now after a week's treatment. He has been advised by the doctors to stay in a good environment, drink more water daily and quit tea & coffee. So we are looking for a good 1BHK in and around OMR area.
I hurt my left little toe while walking due to which I am not able to walk properly with shoes on. Its a rule that everyone must wear shoes in Capemini. I have not asked them about using sandals under these circumstances since I thought I can manage. I hope that it would be gone in a couple of days.
I attended Aravazhi's (my senior at MIT) twin brother's wedding last Sunday at Nungambakkam but could not meet any of my friends there since they did not attend due to their busy schedules. The Sundays are whiling away in the similar fashion every week and as I said in my last post I am desperate for a two-day weekend for which I have to wait for 8 more weeks.
