Some of My Goals for Next Year

  • I want to go to Europe for a month long tour – and cover all the interesting places there.
  • Go to Africa – if it were in my control, I would have the Africa tour before the Europe tour.
  • Take flying lessons and get a pilot’s license.
  • Skydive (at least once)
  • Start photography semi-professionally
  • Go on a cruise to Alaska and spend a few days in Denali National Park.
  • Learn Skiing and do a lot of it in the mountains in the coming winter.
  • Visit the holy trinity of canyons: Zion, Bryce and Grand Canyons.
  • … and many many more things….

What Can I Say About Me?

  • I was a Graduate Student in Computer Engineering at UCSD. I was doing my PhD there but I decided to work and so I ended up joining after I finished my MS in July 2006. Here is my resume.
  • I love to travel to new places, I love to go out to camping and hiking trips and long drives. I love being alone surrounded by nature.
  • I love Computer Games. Mostly I like RPG, RTS and FPS genre games.
  • I am trying to learn Salsa these days. That is an awesome experience.
  • I love puzzles – a lot (If you have some, do not hesitate to send it to me).
  • I try to play Cricket a little too and I also have played a couple of matches in Southern California Cricket League as well (and hoping to play more in future)

Sometimes you do the grocery, and X pays the rent, and Y pays the cable bill etc etc. Sometimes it becomes a little tedious at the end of the month to calculate who owes whom money and how much.
