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…

O – Obsession

I am obsessive about quite a few things, but what would qualify to closely being a OCD is my need for the kitchen platform to be clean. If I have to cook or do anything around in the kitchen, I need the platform to be clean. Staying with my MIL, who is close to 65…

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,…

Rant-y affair!

If I let things be, the days that ran into weeks, will run into months. I wonder what gets to me. Sometimes, I am on a writing spree and I want make a note of all that’s happening. Then there comes a lull, which will stretch into hibernation, if I let it. A pattern that…

Flu and Blue

Do you know what’s worse than Monday morning blues? It’s a Wednesday, which feels like a Monday. Having been struck by a bout of flu and a horrible allergic cough, I spent the weekend and all of yesterday eating, taking medicines and sleeping. On Monday I worked from home thinking it would do the cough…

Self Discovery?

Missed opportunities, missed conversations, missed moments, my life is turning out to be full of regrets most of the times. When alone I think of how I don’t speak nicely to my hubby and end up complaining to him or snapping at him due to issues created by the MIL/SIL. But when with him, I…

Ranting all the way…

I have been intending to write regularly and reach the 100th post milestone on my blog, since God knows when! Am still one short. I wonder why is it that I lose interest in everything so easily. I am yet to find that One thing, doing which will constantly keep me motivated and enthusiastic. I…

Expectations…

… the thing that is one of the main reasons for my disappointment and depression, most of the times. These expectations I really really wanna give up!!! But it’s so hard 😡 * Expectation of love, care, concern from the MIL. * Expectation of help, cordiality or friendship from the teammates. * Expectation from friends…

Crap Customer Service!

Whatever happened to good customer service? It seems like a long time ago when people at the store would greet you with a smile. Owing to fact that there used to be a selective few regular stores we visited, people even recognized us. Now there are streets full of stores, all lined up next to…

Mixed Bag – III

The longer you stay away from writing, the harder it gets to write something. True with most other cases too. I wonder how many innumerable times I have felt like writing and sat down but something comes up – we need to go somewhere, some chore to finish, some call to make and I just…

The Television…

… and me have a strange relationship. I know a lot of people who love watching television. To such extents that can’t imagine a day without it. I have been there too. But as a school going kid. Back then I was super excited about the cartoons and after a certain age the serials which were aired…
