Dress to Impress

So how far would you go to dress to literally impress? I'd say a lot, considering you're applying for a job in big shot companies. Today I bought the most expensive suit EVER in my life... a $90 (after discount even) business suit. 90 freaking dollars!!! For ONE suit!!! In which, I have to admit, I looked quite nice and all CEO material, haha. The career fair's coming up, my resumes are sent out tomorrow and interviews should start around the end of next week and go up to November. That means a busier life than usual. I'll keep this place posted on how I did on particular interviews and the hilarity that shouldn't (under normal circumstances) be associated with it. Starting January, I hope to get a co-op to my liking. So starts the lengthy preparation to it. And I still have to buy shoes and a skirt! Its fun and lovely to dress up and stuff... I'm liking it so far. Except the $$ part.

I'm so 19

Did I have a birthday post last year? I think I did... damn, I was hoping this would be a first. I personally do not put up posts about my birthday, but I think this one had to be done -- this being my last teen birthday and all!

So I'm 19. And proud of it? It means freedom to me. Freedom to do what I want, freedom to choose and freedom to be free (?). Its the year of my Zahir. The year when I'm totally consumed by turning older, better (as a person) and being someone who I always wanted to be. I guess I always was the person I wanted to be... but only on the inside. Now, I see it being reflected in who I am to the world. No longer is my inner voice and thought my "message". I am my message. I can be who I want to be. I can change how I want.

That's the freedom that is my Zahir. I revel in it. I encourage it in others and make them see it and realize how important it is. Few have seen it, few choose to ignore it. But I think thats what makes the world around us interesting and prevents our lives from being mundane. (What's Zahir? I've been reading the book by Coelho... so it might seem as though its goen to my head haha).

Anyway, I would like to thank everyone who took the time to give me a semi-surprise party on the first day of my 3-day long weekend birthday. And also to my friends who gave me the pleasure of having their lovely company the second day and friends from India, Canada and the UK, who called and spent their SIM cards for me, hehe. Thank you! ALSO, a thankkk you to the ppl who kept checking on my blog :-)
