Happy Republic Day to all of my India friends. I am celebrating this by, first and foremost, wishing all of my friends a happy day. Secondly, I have been listening to songs from Indian movies. Mostly, it has been from Salaam Namaste and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. I love both movies: they are two of my favorite Indian movies. Anyway, the semester has started to pick up, but it still should not be as bad as the last few semesters. Anyway, my short dinner break has turned into a 1.5 hour break. I guess I had better hit the books soon again; otherwise, I will not have enough time this weekend to finish everything that needs to get done. The 7-hour software engineering meeting we had today was very productive today, though, so I am really happy about that. Anyway, I am missing my family very much on this Republic Day: they went out to Pizza Hut. In other news, Djokovic beat Federer in the semi-finals, and I hope he will win vs. Tsonga today. Go Djokovic: it’s your day!! :) On that note, time to finish up some work so that I can enjoy the match. Happy Republic Day!!
