A new Year, a new Look and a new Semester

Hey guys,
I have not changed th basic look of my blog since ages. And now entering 2010, I am considering to have a new and fresh look for my blog. And this is the reason why I am not able to post as regularly as I would like to.
Though I am trying for the new look, but I don't promise a change. It would depend whether or not I am able to find that perfect theme.

I have heard college would be reopening from this Monday. And I would be entering my fourth semester. It has been more than 18 months since I entered but it looks like it was only yesterday when college opened its gate for  the first time for me. It was only yesterday that I stepped into this new world with full of opportunities and some gem of people.As Dr. Seuss said,

How did it get so late so soon??? It's night before it's afternoon, December is here before it's June. How did it get so late so soon???

Time has flown like always. Can't imagine what life would be after college finishes. I shiver even at the thought. But for now, its fourth semester, its college life and its tonnes of fun..!!
Where's the party tonight..??

Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee ??

Was going through the mails when stumbled upon this story about a distressed daughter and her father. It tells how father makes her understand everyone faces problems but it depends on you how you handle it ? You can easily give up or overcome it but in the process loose your inner-self or take in your stride and at the end taste the success. It is a beautiful short story and really a motivational one. So here it is -

A daughter complained to her father about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved a new one arose.

Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to a boil. In one he placed carrots, in the second he placed eggs, and the last he placed ground coffee beans. He let them sit and boil, without saying a word.

The daughter sucked her teeth and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing. In about twenty minutes he turned off the burners. He fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them a bowl. Then he ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her he asked. "Darling, what do you see?"

"Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied.

He brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. He then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg. Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. She smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. She humbly asked. "What does it mean Father?"

He explained that each of them had faced the same adversity, boiling water, but each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. But after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak.

The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior. But after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened.

The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.

"Which are you?" he asked his daughter. "When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?" Are you the carrot that seems hard, but with pain and adversity do you wilt and become soft and lose your strength? Are you the egg, which starts off with a malleable heart? Were you a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a divorce, or a layoff have you become hardened and stiff. Your shell looks the same, but are you bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and heart?

Or are you like the coffee bean? The bean changes the hot water; the thing that is bringing the pain, to its peak flavor reaches 212 degrees Fahrenheit. When the water gets the hottest, it just tastes better.

If you are like the coffee bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and make things better around you.  How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg, or coffee?

Hope you enjoyed it and I wish it does helps you or you can say inspire you.
