A letter to myself!

What do I write to myself that I haven’t repeated in my head a million times? I mean that’s what I do all day, talk to myself in my head. But sadly many a time these thoughts are the ones telling me that something is wrong with the way I am, the things I am…

Catching up, yet again!

I can’t call it a writer’s block, because I am not much of a writer. But I have no other term for this zero post, zero journal entry phases that I go through. I just didn’t know what to write about. I wonder if it’s because too much is happening, or too less. If it…

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’m obsessed

I had written about my obsession long back – here. That is still probably my biggest obsession. But having a kid, makes a lot of difference. You have other pressing needs that your mind isn’t so obsessed about the kitchen platform. Add to it, now with a kid, the whole house is messy! So fretting…

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

Monday Blues

The weather of Bengaluru perfectly reflects how my mood has been for the past two weeks. Gloomy, dull and gray. I have set the bar for myself really high. When I don’t meet it, I am so disappointed. I am my own enemy, truly. The last couple of weeks, I’ve been attending interviews. Having no…

Musings of a confused mind

I am in a weird phase. It’s been close to two months, since I am back in office. Unfortunately I haven’t found a project yet. I am not one of the people who enjoys being work-less. Work keeps my mind off unwanted things. People keep telling me that it’s a blessing in disguise and how…

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…

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…

W – Words

Words have so much power. Words are so beautiful. They can express all that you want, just the way you want it. Some people have a way with words, they just string them together and it becomes poetry. Though I have always been a person who prefers prose to poetry, I still can’t stop admiring…

Q – Quit

Many times during this blogging challenge, I have come so close to quitting. Especially on the days that I haven’t been able to think of a subject to write on, till late in the night. It is always the easier option isn’t it? Of the multiple little voices in my head, one of it, keeps…

K – Kick

Is what I feel like giving myself right now! I have been thinking all day on what to post from the alphabet and couldn’t find anything suitable! BG is torturing me by giving some abominable suggestions when I asked him for words from K for blogging. The word abominable reminds of just one thing –…
