“Thank God it’s Friday !!”
No, we are not talking about the famous 1978 movie by Robert Klane, or the celebrity talk show hosted by Farhan Akhtar. We aren’t talking about the famous TGIF pub either.
Now you may ask “ Really ? What’s there to celebrate?” The fact that a week has just breezed by and now you can finally ‘live’ for the next 48 hours before the monotonous cycle begins again. And why Friday especially? Of course, it’s end of the work week. But Friday is still a work day. Fortunately this semester we were spared the educational atrocities on a Friday. Thus we can safely classify Friday, as the beginning of the weekend, somewhat an ‘extended weekend. Weekends are special even if your schedule is all over the place. Something tells you the weekend has arrived and you can indulge yourself a bit. So, we thought of ‘indulging’ in blogging from now on; hoping it to be ‘somewhat’ successful. Making it sound like you have knocked it off on a rainy (or even cloudy) Friday afternoon, with ‘Get Low’ from F&F7 playing in the background is not as whimsically simple as it sounds.
If Mondays give you the blues and Tuesdays are tiring and weary Wednesdays make you go “WTF”, you would probably share our relief. Friday. The golden child of the weekdays. The superhero of the work-week. The welcome wagon to the weekend. The famous ‘F’ word we thank God for every week !!
Before we go into the inception of this noble resolve, bare with us as we take a few lines to introduce ourselves. This miscellaneous group comprises of 4 undergrads: Ananya (aka. Ana) a resourceful innovative writer with a knack of sarcasm; Diptaparna (aka. Derp), our official techfreak-cum-foodie, the person to go to for tech support and whereabouts of the coolest restaurants; Kanad (aka. Kandis) the mastermind behind the blog design and Shinjini (aka. Jini), a music-oriented person, who originally instilled the idea of ‘blogging’ in us.
It’s a friday afternoon and we were in the cafeteria for lunch, with thoughts messing up in our heads about what to do this weekend. Of course, we know that we have assignments to submit, deadlines to meet, and exams to appear for, still the child in us forces us to think about all sorts of topsy-turvy weekend plans, to seek refuge from the college stress. Somehow, Jini comes to the topic of ‘blogging’, and Ana suggests about ‘food blogging’, keeping in mind that Derp is a big foodie, and he could help us with the restaurants and stuff. As usual, Kandis is super-excited and and all ready to do the ‘designing stuff’ for the blog. Somehow, after a discussion (that lasts for an entire lunch) we decide to write blogs, about a new topic every week, marking the beginning of our blog, on a free friday. *Cheers!!*
So, finally, welcome to our blogging site. In preparation for takeoff, please ensure all negative attitudes are properly stowed. On behalf of your captain, Jack Daniel’s and the bloggers, welcome aboard. We expect sunshine and good attitudes today for our trip. Enjoy the ride !!
