I try to soak in the heat from the deceptive winter sun before a chill wind takes it all away, I'm not too sucessful.
It's colder than ever here, about 11 degrees. I'm an icicle. Visions of grande vanilla mochas float before my eyes. Visions of being wrapped up in never ending hugs to shield me from the cold. Visions of sitting on the bed, wrapped up in a huge blanket, with someone to hold. Someone nice and warm. And my mocha.
Blanket+Mocha+hug= Reasonably tolerable winter. I might even enjoy it.
But alas, the only ones who wish to envelope me in their not-so-warm embraces are the physics, chem and math. Ugh.
I've always been terrible with cold. Maybe it hits me worse coz I'm so thin, the chill goes right through. It's not even like a Delhi winter, those are cold and kinda stationary...(I pity all you Delhiites right now) I've been to Delhi in winter, for about 2-3 days at a time, and the last time I was there I was wearing 3 layers and I was still freezing!
But here, it's windy. You get those precious golden rays at like 10 am, but then this wind comes up and whips it all away. I curl up and shiver. My winter wardrobe is nonexistent. Apart from my fave Puma double-sleevie thing.
I think my mood differs with season.....I love the heat. LOVE summer. Especially here, where I can feel the burn on my face and my arms (Ironically, the only place I got sunburnt was in Himachal Pradesh. Bharmour. And I live in a country where peak summer temperature is 45 degrees) Sadly I never get to enjoy the full summer, when it's hottest here, I'm in Mumbai, on summer vacation, hiding from the rain.
I want to hibernate for a week. Muscles all stiff.
Wake me up when this winter ends..........
Anyway, the tuition teachers have got me all freaked out, so for the first time in my life, I'm going to make a study timetable. And stick to it.
Wish me luck........
