17 | Tomorrow

Tomorrow is a day of new beginnings. Well, beginnings that have already begun, but now on a relatively larger scale. Larger scales scare me in this case, because it involves involvement of a lot more people, with a lot more dimensions, lot more perspectives – something which is in general likely to bring a lot more judgments and opinions not only to last on people’s own minds, but also inevitably affecting other people’s points of view.

All I hope right now is that when I look back on tomorrow in future (or when I write about it in detail on the blog), it seems to be full of joys and happiness and none of these apprehensions I mentioned above.

Till then, wish me luck! (for something y’all shall know in some time :))

13 | What your Sunday looked like ?

Mine was more than decent. I spent the entire day taking things slow, at my own pace & not getting fed up of it even for a moment. I never skip my breakfasts on the weekends also, even though I don’t wake up that early. Today it was oats chilla (oats crepe of sorts) and scrambled eggs with cheddar cheese. Slightly more work than my usual fare (because I had to use the grinder to powder the oats for the batter), then watching ‘The Office’ along with breakfast, followed by another snooze. Showering, putting a hair pack for that extra indulgence :D. Then, lunch was lachcha paratha and chilke wali moong dal (if you are not an Indian reading this, please Google :)). Would you believe if I tell you that this was followed by another snooze? πŸ˜€ Then, I had tea and read for sometime.

Just when it could have possibly felt like too much time spent alone, a plan was made with friends. A lovely way to end the day! We went to this place called Urban Tamasha on 100 ft road, Indiranagar. Pretty good! And just before meeting them, I also happened to shop.

It feels like Sunday spoilt me a bit, but I do feel good. So, all’s good. πŸ™‚

Would love to know how was yours. πŸ™‚

12| Tough Days

Do you all have those days where just nothing seems to go right? I genuinely feel amused at how this happens. Like, how can one thing go wrong in a day and then every thing seems to be going wrong? Anyone got some explanation for this? Like, I would really like to know if this is some sort of regular phenomenon.

Yesterday, I had one of those days. My day started with getting late for work and it was kind of crucial to reach timely. Then, something I was expecting didn’t happen. Then, I had to go pick up some stuff from a tailor and turned out it wasn’t completed (even though he said it very confidently that I can pick it on Friday :|). Then, I had a really big fight with someone. So, yeah, honestly, I am still recovering from the blows of yesterday. πŸ˜ƒ Any soothing words will be helpful.

1 | New Year Resolution

IMG_4313

Hello there! Welcome to the year 2019!

I am very excited as there are a lot of new things happening in my life which will materialize in 2019, so really looking forward to that. (And to new year in general).

But, amidst all this, what remains unchanged is my itch to be consistent on the blog (which I never manage to fulfill). So, I have only one new year resolution – to blog every day in this year. A lot is happening so this seems like a difficult resolution to keep especially in this year, however, I am going to try with all sincerity.

Let’s see how this goes. πŸ™‚

Now, tell me your resolution?

Or, or, what you are doing today?

The Year End Post | 2018

People who barely post all year round and then have pants in their antsΒ ants in their pants to do the year end post, just because, life’s better with recording mota-mota highlights from throughout the year. πŸ™‚

I was very happy that one of my most favorite bloggers finally posted before the year completed and I am going to take her idea of talking about the year month by month. Mostly because my year also had month specific highlights. πŸ˜€

Jan to July saw me in Dubai for a business ‘trip’. I always thought it to be a trip, because initially it was told as a fixed timeline thing. So, I never really realized that I managed to complete 6 months there because almost every month was spent feeling ‘oh, the work’s just about done!’. Then, there was also talk around making it a more permanent thing, which never really excited me. I really wanted to be based out of India at this point. So, I took the happiness first route and did what I really felt like doing and came back to India. Anyhow, I met very, very nice people there who were super supportive and helpful and I am going to cherish that big time! Also, one of my close friends made a trip to Dubai and we did a lot of tourist-y things in Dubai and Abu Dhabi along with some of the friends I made there. Real nice times!

August saw me back in Bangalore. It was kind of a haphazard month with house hunting and getting into the new work assignment. But, but, it was also my birthday month and Rahul had a really sweet, adorable surprise planned. First of all, it does not matter what the surprise is because so much effort from that boy who is super non-materialistic and does not really get excited about random stuff is really a big deal, I almost feel bad that the lazy ass had to get out of his comfort zone so much. Anyhow, a whole post about that is already sitting in my drafts, to be published sometime later in 2019. πŸ™‚

Trip to Jaipur

 

 

September, I definitely remember September being good and fun but reasons I don’t remember really. I moved to a new place in Bangalore and settled in slowly. Then, Delhi trip was definitely much needed. There was a trip at the end of September to Gokarna. Gokarna is just about fine, but it never hurts to visit a new place, right?

October marked the beginning of something new in life. More on that later.

November was Diwali month and quite an additionally happy one because we were working on something regarding what started in October πŸ˜‰ and we made a road trip regarding the same to one of my favorite places in the world. I am sorry but pretty sure that you will have to re-read this post several times in 2019 to connect the dots of what all I am talking about, if you are actually concerned that is!

Funny pose but wanted to put this nonetheless

And here we are in December, more work, more excitement, more confused feelings about what started in October and there are already some good things underway which makes me look forward to 2019 infinitely!

Edit: Totally forgot to mention that I took my first non-business solo trip to Pondicherry in the end of 2018. It was totally on a whim, but I am so glad I did this because remember I mentioned here in the 2017 year end post that I really want to take a non-business solo trip in 2018? So grateful for how things work out. πŸ™‚

Now, for the important bit, how was your 2018 like? I would love to know in comments.

Also, tomorrow I’ll post about my new year resolution.

A very happy and prosperous new year to all!

Want your thoughts!

You are too volatile. You are such an over thinker. You are unstable. You get angry so quickly.

Well, absolutely not saying that being any of that is any good. However, if you are so calm, stable, always balanced, super rational, then does that make you less passionate compared to the likes of me?

True, you will not hate unabashedly, you will not unleash anger all ofΒ  a sudden (and beyond repair, of course!), but would you love as fiercely as the likes of me either?

Would appreciate your thoughts on this, all of you reading it. πŸ™‚
