Today is one of the days when I'm not feeling particularly bookish - things are slowly getting busy here and I'm trying to not feel that busy. I am still reading - thank goodness for that - so I haven't got into any funk, but the next two months look insanely busy to me that I could use a time blinder-of sorts that doesn't let me look so much into the future. But then, it is that season - Thanksgiving, Christmas, vacations, family time, winter, did I say busy vacations?
This week, I'm going to New York to visit my brother, after 9 months. While that's not a huge timeframe by any scale, it has been a rocky phase for him managing his health and studies, that I am looking forward to it. I am writing a couple of reviews for the week, but since writing posts in advance is not my kind of thing (I'm just lazy that way), I am looking forward to staying off the internet (mostly) for the coming weekend. Thank you, Google, for 'Mark All as Read', even though that leaves me mostly guilty.
Next month, I'm going to India for a quick 'vacation', after more than two-and-a-half-years. Why exactly? Scroll down. It's going to be busy, horribly, that I'm already looking forward to coming back. There's a ton of shopping to do, which is leaving me with dread. I like shopping for myself, but not for anyone else. There's the whole Will they Like it, Will they not? phase that's just terrifying. Worse than that is the What should I buy? phase. Never fun, because everyone else is also shopping at the same time.
But most importantly, my fiancé and I are getting married in January! That's the whole reason things are very hectic. The planning's been going about for a while - luckily, my dad's organizing the wedding in India and I don't have to worry about the logistics, but there are still a lot of things to think about. I'm not the girly-excited-about-the-wedding-day kind of person, and I'm not into building up fanfare, but it's still going to be a big day. So, if you don't see me around as much as usual over the next couple of months, you know why! So, there's my big announcement for the day!
