So M.I.A

I was just reading some of my older posts and realized that it's been a while since I actually wrote in-depth about my life. I think I am becoming more of an objective person with time. My life is so much different from when I used to be in Buffalo. But then again its the same in some ways too.For example, my activities are pretty much the same---I watch a lot of TV when I am free, I browse the web a lot and I am constantly getting up to brew some green tea. But its different because I live with my parents and my sister but I don't mind it so much. Sometimes I wake up in the morning and think I am back in Buffalo, on my always-cold futon mattress, with a sliver of a view of the snow-spackled window. Then I'll spend some minutes in bed (on weekends, of course), eyes closed, thinking of the streets, the food, the grocery stores of Buffalo. Some people might want to come beat me with a stick because I speak of Buffalo in such light. I know Buffalo has the reputation of being a ramshackle city. To me though, it has the reputation of being a homely, rather cold town with friendly people. I made some great friends while I was there and I know that some are friends for life (you know who you are!). Anyways, so thats my nostalgia portion for the night. Last week was the first week after ramadan and Eid so it was (still is) back to the regular schedule of 9-4. Work's been a bit hectic so I can't make time for much exercise and the pounds seem to be piling on. I need motivation to lose weight...I might be going to Bangladesh in December or January, so I might step up by game around then.

I've been eating a lot of chutneys lately. Mint or coriander are my favorites! I mix yogurt, garlic, fresh coriander, lemon juice, cumin powder, salt and pepper and eat it with some rice and beans. Its so zesty and fresh, I love it! Well, I better get going and make some teaaa :)
