On 28th July, I completed one year in the United States. Thanks to Facebook, I was notified about the same with the status update a year back:
It has hardly been a day and I’m already missing the irregularities and chaos among many other things.
The last entry in The States Diary is more than 9 months old now. And, like I have mentioned in my last entry, there is not just as much ‘excitement’ here for me as it was in Mumbai. Anyways, I have visited a few places here in the last 9 months and although I said that the stay hasn’t been exactly “exciting”, the trips were definitely memorable to say the least.
After the last post, which was in October 2014, it was time to welcome the winter. If you’re in the east coast of the States, you can very easily comprehend the emotion behind the famous Games of Thrones dialogue – “Winter is coming!“. You just can’t plan anything in those 4-5 months. The greenery goes away and it’s black and white everywhere. You have to clean your car everyday before you can drive it to office. Your car wheels may not obey your steering wheel if the roads are icy. You have to wear clothes of weight more than yours before you leave from your home. There are a lot of reasons for people to hate winter. But, I somehow liked it – may be because it was the first winter for me here. The other reason can very well be the fact, as people told me, that it was not as bad as the previous year.
