Finally....

Wow....the broadband is finally active today.....and good-bye to dial-up!! It has had taken 26 days for the broadband providers to activate it. It was a little hassle to go through this time than when we moved house last year. I have no idea why though.

Their service is usually good but we got fed up this time. We were given a minimum of 20 days to get the broadband and 7 days period for the phone line after moving house. But they took more than two weeks to give the phone line and the reason given for the delay was that the time it had taken for them to get the line enabled from BT (British Telecom). And now, 26 days for the broadband and this is even after our few shouts only. Every time you call, they say "give us a call in 48 hours period of time as I am just going to pass this job into our dash department." Exactly the same words every time!! I don't know whether they were being ignorant or technical probs or what. Had to ring them almost every two days to give a sho…

People and Perception...

Wondering…… of the different ways in which individuals take things into their minds. When lots of people have the same kind of perception, say on a specific matter, it then becomes the 'right' and routine one! And everything else what others think about it is the 'odd'. Totality of socially transmitted behavioural patterns- the one I liked of all the definitions of culture Ive came across. This is the way every culture in this world is structured, I guess. Culture gives a great way to the humans to have a straight, right and controlled life by drawing lines on what should be done and whatnot. Nevertheless the mode of perceptions in everything is gradually changing in this era.

People have their skill of intellectuality well developed than the past to think and analyse. This may explain the reason for all the controversies happening on almost all the things nowadays. One urges, tests, analyses and decides whether it is right or wrong and sticks with it. Yet some people h…

Just handed in my assignment a few secs ago. And now got the time to get my hands on this blog! I had to kind of leave the assignment to the last min because of several reasons. Feeling very relaxed at the moment though it is only temporary until I start the next assignment for SSU. It's a reflective account that I have to write which is better than what I had to hand in today. Friday... essay had been submitted.... low intesity of stress.....and weekend!...some indefinable feeling! Wish you all have a leisurely weekend!
The past two weeks had been quite hectic...Busy with moving house and a very packed time table. I have finally moved house on Wednesday! To those of you who are thinking oh my god, how many times this girl is going to be complaining about this..the answer is ..not anymore for sure! ;). Thanks to my two other friends, Kavas and Brave, who helped us with the removals and without them I can't imagine how it would have been to us!

One of the worst parts of moving house is the broadband connection! Not going to get broadband for 20 days. Arghhh! I don't understand why do they need such a long period to activate it. Some technical reasons or business benefits? I don't know! It is taking time for me to adapt to the new house, find it quite strange to be at a totally different place. So I am now completely relying on library for my Internet and studying. Will hopefully get the connection on the expected date.

In the library at the moment, just seen the email that my anatomy tutorial…
