A Nine Inch Nail Song Re-sung by Johnny Cash that hits home every time I listen to it!!

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing thats real

The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away in the end
& you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liars chair
Full of broken thoughts
I can not repair

Beneath the stains of time
The feeling disappears
You are someone else
I am still right here

What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
& you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I will keep myself
I would find a way

The Weekend of 38 Stars

Its not too often that we actually witness a fairy tale story in our lives, yet I had the oppurtunity to be part of one. It was the weekend when a team of 38 MBA Students from a little known Odette School of Business took Canada by surprise. We were a team that gave an unmatched all round performance in all areas of the National MBA Games that played host to 13 leading business schools. From sports, academic competitons, spirit events and events where one only made a fool of themselves, the Odette team made their presence felt.

We came in second overall, a stark contrast from our position in last year's games. We had vowed last year that we would make a difference and we surely did. It was the one weekend when these 38 stars were shining bright in unison - a real life fairy tale. We all stepped up to the plate - even if it meant playing the Nose Flute in front of 100s of people.

Proud to be an Odette Alum, Proud to be an MBA!!

A Shot of Reality

Its been a long time since you and I
Stood face to face gazing at each other

Its been a long time since I saw the wind
Play with the strands of your hair

Its been a long time since I said something
And you blushed with an innocent smile on your face

Its been a long time since we sat by the ocean
Making colonies in the sand that we were destined to rule

Its been a long time since I could share
The major victories of my life with you

Its been a long time since I had the motivation
To tell you how I feel, but shyed away

And as the passage of time grows so grows the distance
You evolve in a world you made, I, in a life I chose

I keep calling you my Unicorn because
the distance and the time, and all that’s in between
will keep us apart, with memories of what was
and unfulfilled dreams of what could have been

Return From The Soul Trip

One month down since I last spat my thoughts into this virtual world. I am back now. I was on a trip, a mental, emotional, psychological, physiological trip that saw me talking to the inner demons and the inner saints, the inner villains and the inner heros, in the end what stood the test of time and what survived the raging fire of the burning spirit was me, myself and I!

I Am Back!

Windsor-Toronto-Montreal-Toronto-Quebec City-Toronto that's what the past month has been, constant motion! I learnt how forgive myself, I learnt how to forgive others, I learnt to learn from my mistakes and laugh at them with others, I learnt that every success is followed by a failure, I learnt that if a small group of people organize and dedicate themselves to achieving a goal, they could not only surprise themselves but also their detractors and toughest rivals. I learnt its OK to own up to your mistakes, I learnt that sometimes life does give a second chance and that's when redemption takes place.I learnt that dreams can become real and the reality maybe better than what we had dreamt of. I learnt that life is a constant lesson, if we are alive we will learn something new everyday. Heres a line a learnt, a famous satire artist, George Carlin said: "Count life not by the moments you breathe, but by the moments that take your breath away"

I Learnt - I am Learning

I Am Back!
