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…

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…

I want less/I want more

This list keeps getting updated from time to time actually. But a few of these are constants, I think. I want less of – Pollution Traffic Advertisements Online sales Differences Expectations Judgement I want more of – Love Companionship Time Colors Greenery Clean Air Long drives Understanding Hugs n Kisses Smiles Chatter

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…

I am on this earth to…

This prompt brought forth the thoughts that I keep trying to push to the background. I’ve deep down in my heart believed that I’m on this earth to achieve something big. I know that “big” is a relative term. Since childhood, I always felt that I need to prove my capability to my parents by…

Words that best describe me

On a spur, I decided to take up this 28 days personal discovery prompt challenge. It was done in Feb actually, but that shouldn’t stop me from taking it up any time, isn’t it? How it works is that, there are 28 prompts which I should write/blog about. I’ve decided to do it, over the…

Talking to the old self

I was reading the posts on my old blog and read the first post I had written 8 years back. 8 years, is quite a long time. When I started off, I never thought I’d last so long. The blog, my writing and I as a person have evolved so much over time. My posts…

Six done, Six more to go!

We are halfway through the year already. Whenever a new year begins, I am pepped up with new ideas and aspirations. These sometimes disappear as the year progresses. From a couple of months I am trying to set up smaller goals, which align with my yearly resolutions. I try keeping record of my progress on…

ಕನ್ನಡ ಕಲಿಯೋಣ?

ನಾವು ಸಹಜವಾಗಿ ಮಾತನಾಡುವುದು ಕನ್ನಡ. ಆದರೆ ಅದನ್ನು ಬರೆಯಲು ಹೋದರೆ ಬಹಳ ಅಸಹಜ ಎಂದು ಅನ್ನಿಸುತ್ತದೆಯಲ್ಲ, ಏಕೆ? ಎಕೆಂದರೆ ನಾವು ಮಾತನಾಡುವುದು ಕನ್ನಡ ಅಲ್ಲ, ಅದು ಕಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್. ಅದರಲ್ಲಿ ಕನ್ನಡಕ್ಕಿಂತ ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್ ಪದಗಳೇ ಹೆಚ್ಚು. ಮಾತನಾಡಲು ಶ್ರಮ ಪಡುವಾಗ, ಇನ್ನು ಬರೆಯುವುದನ್ನು ಮರೆತು ಬಿಡಿ. ನಮ್ಮ ಸ್ಮಾರ್ಟ್ ಫೋನ್ಗಳೂ ಈಗ ನಮ್ಮ ಭಾಷೆಯನ್ನು ಅಳವಡಿಸಿಕೊಂಡಿದೆ. ಆದರೆ ನಾವು ಅದನ್ನು ಬಳಸುತ್ತಿರುವುದು ಹೇಗೆ, ಗೊತ್ತೇ? ಕನ್ನಡವನ್ನು ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಟೈಪ್ ಮಾಡಿ. 😀 ಫೋನು ಸ್ಮಾರ್ಟ್ ಆಗಿ ಅನುವಾದಿಸಿ…

J – Journal

If there are long spans of my absence on the blog, you can be sure I am writing my heart out into the journal. Similarly if I am here blogging, there will hardly be any entries in the journal. I somehow find it tedious to write into both, rather I feel I will be repetitive….

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,…
