Stories, TheGirlAtFirstAvenue

And its just begun…

May 21, 2012
The first few weeks here have been a roller coaster ride. In a short span of days, there have been so many changes in my life and I have met so many people, participated in so many activities – that it almost feels like I’ve been living here for months. My days are packed with so many events one after the other from morning to night. So many, that, its getting rather hard to keep track of what I’ve been doing the entire day!On top of all that I fell sick and was also hospitalized for the first time in my life for typhoid. Of all the places I’ve eaten at back home, of all the kinds of street food I’ve filled my stomach with.. I had to go ahead and get typhoid here. Now. Perfect timing.

After four days of deliriously high fever, midnight rushes to the hospital in an ambulance, getting poked with IV needles, injections, totally losing consciousness of what’s been happening around me, nausea, headaches and a whole lot of other symptoms (which I really don’t want to get into now), I am sort of beginning to feel like a human being again. Typhoid is an exhausting illness. It saps you off every last drop of your energy. I’ve solely been running on mental strength for the past two weeks, and! BUT it could have been worse, a lot worse and am thankful that I am getting better slowly and steadily.

I miss blogging, I miss writing, I miss the photoshoots we used to have, searching for locations, putting together outfits for specific shoots… basically I miss my life! I know I haven’t visited or commented on any of your blogs. Heck I haven’t even been able to visit my blog! Its a miracle if I am able to sit at the desk for an hour without completely exhausting myself. Hopefully I’ll have time and energy for it soon. Until then, just a few random pictures from before I fell sick.

Good news is that am back on twitter and instagram(@thegirlatfirstavenue)!
