Motivates me

When I find notes like these, which I’ve written to myself. These show I got through whatever was bothering me at that moment – Come on! It’s okay! It’s just the first day. You need a lead to proceed on. It will come with time. Things get clearer as you work on them. You can’t…

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…

Travel Diaries – Mangalore

This year has started off great in terms of travel for us. In fact, since the end of last year itself. We went to Waynad with the sister’s family during the Christmas weekend, to Chennai during the Republic Day weekend and to Mangalore the last weekend. It may seem like a lot of travel to…

Pregnancy Diary – 18.04.2017

I was thinking today and realized that I am quite enjoying being pregnant. I was rather feeling sad today that I get to be in this phase for just another 45 days or so. Sure, the sitting, turning, bending, walking, everything takes effort and is uncomfortable. But the sensation of my baby wiggling, prodding at…

R – Rendezvous

My best buddy who lives in Chennai got married in November. His engagement was more of a family affair that was organized by the girl’s family and was held in Kerala. We had decided to skip that, assuming we would anyway attend the wedding. Unexpectedly something really important came up at our end in November…

F – Friends

Just 5 alphabets done and am already here, trying to meet the deadline by drafting a post at 11 in the night. Though I had this topic on my mind all day, first I couldn’t find the time due to work throughout the day and then I had my friend come over to my place…

Birthday Celebration – III (Trip Day 2)

At the stroke of midnight, P and his wife brought out a cake for me. It had a photograph of me and BG on it! It was beautiful! P had also put candles, which read ’29’. 😡 We a had great time, cutting, eating and applying it on each others face! 😀 As if all this…

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,…

That’s what’s up!

It’s already Feb! I wonder how many times I have already made this statement on the blog and elsewhere, that time just flies! Didn’t the new year just start? Now it’s already past a month. My reader which used to be flooded with posts in Jan suddenly seems empty, now that the blogathon is over….

Where are we headed?

Intolerance and stuff! What is really happening in our country? Why do such educated people start behaving so foolishly, recklessly passing comments? Also why is there such media in our country, whose job is not to provide information, but to sensationalize everything just to make money? I feel sad to see how things and perspectives…

Show Time!!

It’s been really long that I made an attempt to write anything here. Something that I have been occupied in the whole of last month is…. Dance!!! 😀 Yes.. After about 14 odd years, I got onto a stage again, to perform. Back in school, I was a regular in all extra-curricular activities, ranging from…

Uncles vs Aunties

We have group on WhatsApp. 7 of us, who are friends from my previous organization. One of the guys sent this link “11 signs you are turning into an Aunty in your late 20s“. Now, this is not the first time that they are calling us aunties. They do it all the time! I don’t…
