Another difficult Monday

What do you do when that perfect creature you want to be, is killing you? The person who wakes up early in the morning, to get things ready for breakfast and lunch because she doesn’t want to be labeled a lazy DIL, who does nothing at home. This despite having gone late to bed last…

I regret…

…having arguments with Dad. …always being on the edge of my percentages. I’ve a 69, 79, 89 (I won’t tell, which one was attained when 😛 ). If I’d only tried a little harder, I could’ve been on the other side. …not getting Dad a smartphone, which was one of his wishes. …some stupid involvement…

I worry…

…about everything under the sun! Not a very good thing I know. When on bench, I worry about not having a project. I get a job; I worry about how I will perform. I worry about the travel it will take, the extra time that I will spend on travel, missing out being with my…

My operating principles

Am too principled, is what I feel. Come to think of it, I have missed out on a whole lot of fun in life because that. The quote – “Don’t take life too seriously, no one makes it out alive anyway!” is maybe meant for people like me. I realize that, but my brain and…

Inspires me

I don’t remember who, but someone once told me, “Learn all that you can from all the sources you can”. I follow it diligently. I think everyone has something different to teach us. The teacher I wrote about, in one of my posts, who stood by me, against her colleagues opinion, she was one of…

X – ‘X’

Remember way back in school, how you had the task of finding ‘x’ in Mathematics? It took on so many roles. ‘X’ could be the simple number of apples to a value in an extremely complex equation. But the best part about the whole thing was, if you derived it logically, you could always find…

P – Passion

Time and again my thoughts keep revolving around the fact that in all these years I haven’t been able to identify what is it that I am passionate about? What is it for which I can stay awake all through the night and work for and not feel tired or worn out? True that I…

M – Mondays

This challenge was supposed to have Sundays exempted, because there are 24 alphabets and 4 weeks in April, so you do the math. But I conveniently forget to write a post every Saturday. I wonder why. This adds to the pressure to meet the target on a Sunday. While I am talking about the days,…

E – Empty

Have you ever felt that more the stuff we fill our lives with, the emptier we feel? I get that feeling all the time. Our growing up years were really far more comfortable than that of our parents. We didn’t struggle for the basic needs. We led a simple middle class life. A car, a…

So far, so good…

I missed blogging about all milestones. The anniversary, the 30th birthday and so many more things. The inclination to blog also has gone down. 😦 I blame the office network for it. Commenting and posting is blocked in the office network. 😡 I can only browse through and read the posts. I cannot comment on them,…

Birthday Celebration – II (My gift and Trip Day 1)

After having arranged for the gift, I was at peace as there would be no last minute rush of what to get. However I knew that BG would have no inclination to get a gift or plan anything for the birthday, like his typical self. So for one, I planned the Mangalore trip and two,…

And.. I am Back!

It’s been too long that I have been missing around here! I know! I actually wrote two posts in between, didn’t have the time to complete it and wanted to save it as draft. But the new WordPress layout kept saying “Saving” for a really long time and then I closed the window, only to…
