Sunday post on Monday as I was out partying yesterday.
My vacation in the US had been amazing so far. I came to Vegas on Friday night and the last 50 hours have been a whirlwind. Just yesterday morning I went to sleep with the scent of perfume still stuck to my cheeks.
The one mistake I did was to drink to much on Friday night. Ended up having a raging hangover on Saturday.
The flight to US was good. The journey was not very tiring even though I couldn’t get much sleep. Spent the Thursday roaming around the Chicago downtown. It was a great experience.
Will start back to Chicago tomorrow morning. Need to plan for what I want to do for the next few days
Came to Hyderabad on thursday. I was not sure about how to manage the work during this week. It was very difficult, specially yesterday, as I had to sit and do patching till 1 am in the night. But I managed somehow.
Completed the web check-in. Have got the seats allotted. Need to go to Uppal and get the stuff from there picked up. Need to do the packing too. I am exited about this trip.
I will probably start from home at around 12:30 am in the night. Might take an hour to reach airport. 2 hours to do check-in from there. Flight at 4:00 am. Need to rest well today as I wont have any sleep tonight.
I am planning to write a travel log for this trip. Lets see how it goes.

Sunday post on Monday cause I was out having a good time with Madam yesterday.
As of this moment I don’t have any doubts about my decision to get married to Madam. Every time I touched her yesterday, my hesitations seem to disappear slowly. I took a few liberties, which she didn’t seem to mind at all, and it seemed so right. I spent 12 hours with her and the time seemed to fly. My attraction to her has definitely increased.
I have been a little hesitant these few weeks. Maybe not consciously but still. She seemed to get it and got frustrated on Saturday when our plan to go to Nandi Hills on Sunday did not work out. She came to meet me determined to find out if I was in fact interested. I guess it was a question both of us wanted answered. I cleared our doubts by the end of the day when we parted with a peck on our cheeks.
I managed to get the complete picture of madam’s families financial status. I have been okay about it from the beginning but I feel more comfortable now.
Cleared the SQL Fundamentals exam on Saturday. Feel proud of my effort. I am an OCA now. Don’t have the time to take the OCP exam this week so I postponed the exam to next week. Need to have appraisal discussion with Chaman this week before I leave. Worked on migrations last week. Was a good learning. With SSC work moving out, I need to learn the migration skill set if I want to have work in Oracle.

The folks met Madam yesterday. Earlier in the day I took her out to lunch and then to a movie. We had an okayish time. Madam is inherently not very talkative. I had to search for things to talk about. We weren’t exactly having comfortable silences. I have a feeling I am trying too hard to make this work. I have come to like her as a person. I still don’t feel the physical attraction though. Hopefully that will come with time.
I was very well behaved yesterday. She was very impressed. I seem to be making the right noises and doing the right things so I am building up a good image in her mind and hopefully heart. Is that enough? Knowing love and feeling love are two very different things. If she comes to love me as a person then I will know her love. I will not be in love with her. Will it suffice?
Isn’t it good enough to have a partner you like and respect who loves you?
This is a question I will let my future self answer.
The folks liked her. Mr. Puri mentioned that she doesn’t quite look in real life what she looked in the picture. Which are my sentiments from the beginning. There is nothing I can do about it. Anyway it was my treat yesterday and we had a good time. Cost me quite a lot too. Now that that is over with, we can move onto other things.
I had the SQL fundamentals certification to do this week but I pushed it out. I could not prepare adequately. Mr. C has asked me to do a migration next week. Should be interesting.
Gym subscription ended last week. I started going to the office gym this week. Its not the best situation but its okay. I will do the long run tomorrow.
