    Hi! I was wondering if there were other Indusladies near the Tampa area. Work and school normaly suck up so much time that socializing has become a thing of the past. Holi came and went by and I hardly recognized the event.

    Hi,

    I am Arpita...from Lake Wales (near Winter Haven), FL. I face the same thing as you do....no time for socializing....that's why I have signed up here thinking that I might find some friends here :-D . So, what do you do besides work and school? If you like, keep in touch...I would also like to make new friends....as I am really bored from my routine life of work and work....:-D .

    Regards,

    Arpita

    Hi cherry blossom and arpita,

    nice to see ur messages. that is good to know that there are more indians in the apt called carlton arms, we are in the idea of moving to a new apartment, the apt lease is going to end (4 months lease) october, so i will look into those apartment, where indians live more.

    hi arpita, the blog is good, actually before coming to usa, i was there in delhi about 4years. basically we are from southindia(tamilnadu), but we celebrated holi, diwali and other more festivals in north very well.

    really missing india very much.

    sanju.

    Hi Sanju,

    Great to hear back from you. Also, thanks for visiting my blog.
    Are you from Tampa? Well, Tampa and Orlando still have a lot of Indians...but I live in Lake Wales and we only have few Indians here.....so sometimes it's very boring not to see anyone around from India. As you mentioned in your previous post...that Holi came and went by and you didn't ever recognized the event......it's generally the case here with us.....we hardly celebrate any Indian festivals. But, sometimes we try to go to my aunt's place (100 miles drive one way) to celebrate some of our Indian festivals....that's the best possible way here. I hope you see more Indians around you...so that you don't have to face what we do here :-D .
    Ok then talk to you later....bye for now.

    Hi Sanju,

    Thanks for replying back.
    Well, life at my end is really busy......sometimes 24 hours a day feel short to finish up the work load. I look forward to a break where I can stay at home for few days, watch movies, do whatever I want to do, and just relax. But, it never happens.
    On the other hand, you are a home maker......you stay at home most of the time....but you get bored out of it......hmmmm. I think we should share our daily schedule with each other :-D ....that way I will get some time to relax and you will get some time to get out of your stay at home life:goodidea: ........just kidding. However, I think we should do something for our routine lives......I should do something to get relax.....and I guess you should get involved in some activities which will keep you little bit away from your stay at home life, which makes you bored. :yes: .......may be.......we will find out a way.
    Ok then talk to u later....take care...bye for now.
