I always knew I am sort of an introvert. I am neither comfortable nor good at making conversations with new people. One thing is I can’t make small talk for the sake of it and secondly, if it’s a new person then I won’t know anything about him/her to strike a conversation. Maybe this is one of the reasons why I have stuck to old friends. I am most comfortable only around them and they are people who know me since a long time ago. But what I realized is that there is some sort of a fear associated with it. For instance there was a client visit at office today. Since I am relatively new to the team, I hadn’t seen or met the guy before. While the whole team met him, I was at my desk hoping and praying no one calls me to talk to him. There was a fear as I wasn’t sure of what I am supposed to talk to him. But in the previous team where I was for more than 2 years, I had regular work related interactions with the client and onsite members. Why is it so difficult the first time?? 😐
Me and Bg (the hubby) went and bought a gold ring on the occasion of Akshaya Tritiya (just an excuse :P) for me! What’s with guys and jewelry? Why is there so much fuss to wear a ring or chain, when we ladies are supposed to roam around wearing all symbols of being married, from the mangalsutra to the toe ring. Oh! the drama he does to wear the engagement ring. 😡
I am pretty pissed and have decided not to visit my parents or my sis. I keep popping up there at every opportunity I get, coz I miss them so much! 😦 But in the past six months they have hardly visited me. The reason they give is that I stay with my in-laws and that it doesn’t seem appropriate to come too often. 😡 How is that a valid reason? So what if I stay with my in-laws, as if they didn’t know that when they found the match for me? Most importantly, how does it matter? You are coming to see me, your daughter, why would anybody mind it??
I hate Mondays! It’s proven today. Every Monday I have this horribly sad mood at work. Not that I am super happy or jumpy on the other days, but they are okay. But Mondays are really tough. First having to get up early after having slept nicely in the weekend, secondly come to the stupid unfriendly office and spend 9.5 hrs and finally the thought that you have to wait a good 5 days for it to be weekend again. 😦 Well writing this post is somehow helping and it’s almost time to leave. 🙂
On Saturday I visited a school friend and spent a good three hours with her. It felt so awesome and comfortable, just like old times. That’s the best thing about true friends, no matter how rarely you talk to them, you never feel awkward when you meet up. You just pick up from where you left. 🙂 Isn’t it?
How was your weekend??
