Another Birthday went by...

The minute the new year is born, the first thing I look in the Calendar is "What day is my Birthday".. Little pleasures of life, right?

Well, over the years the day has come to become synonymous with "Spending time with friends".. But over the past few years, one by one my friends have been moving away [ not figuratively, but literally].. one moved to Bombay, another to Bangalore... Sigh!! What this means is I don't have these jokers around to hang out with, spend time with.. But then that is life, right?

This year, on 3rd I was home, feeling slightly Blahed out when a group of friends messaged, followed it up with a call and we met for a quick bite and some chit chat.. It was one fun evening indeed... Did not stay out too late, but had a good time.. Tried out pasta and garlic bread with Beetroot mayo at this new place, had ice cream at a small local joint, laughed quite a bit & had a whale of a time... And then of course there were the sweet ones who called to wish around midnight and made sure I was in high spirits..hehe... 

What do I look for this year? 

  •  Me - Stay the same, keep myself as top priority and live life my way! [as I have been doing so far]
  • Keep health as top priority- try something new
  • Travel- A friend sent me this minion video about travel and wished me more travels this year..  Yes, I want to travel lot more, explore new places and enjoy it while I can
  • Work - See what needs to be done to become a Digital nomad.. 
  • Photography - learn few tricks, tips and click more... 
  • Finances - Invest more, plan better... 

Happy Birthday to me!! :D

Dear Diary, mind in a puddle

So, lots of things have happened since the time I spoke to you... I can sense a change in me, as a person, as an individual..

I continue to remain as independent as ever, just that I have now made peace with the world and stopped expecting things to be any different.

I have accepted the fact that certain people will always hold a soft corner in certain people's hearts and I shouldn't expect any kind of consideration from them in any aspect of life..

I have also finally accepted that I shall never hear a word of encouragement or acceptance from certain people who I thought mattered ....

I don't mean to be rude or bitchy, but why do people care only about those who are needy and clingy? Just because I am capable on my own doesn't mean I don't mind a kind word now and then...

My going out means I don't care..
Few others being out all the time means they are just having fun and it is perfectly fine

My wanting to go meet friends means I am or soothing
Well, I don't give two hoots for people who judge... I never did , now am just beyond indifferent, if that is even possible..

There are few friends who care..
There are others who remember me only when they need something
and then there are others who are there somewhere in the background, fading away...

Well, I am not one to vent, but looks like I too vent once in a while..
Once in a Blue moon... Oh hey, I did take the effort to step out and see the moon this New moon day when the moon was said to be a shade of blue.. Was beautiful...

Anyways, won't go on.. am done!! Mind is free, liberated is how i feel.. :-)

Thanks for being so patient..
Toodle doo till next time

S for Single

If there are two things that are found all around us it is "Free advice" and "questions". And both these shall be imparted without an ounce of consideration or thought to others.  And I have been subject to both these for more times than I can bother to keep track of.

Infact it has come to a point where I don't care anymore.. I don't react and that pisses them off more!
Last week, was out with friends when one of the girls [friend's friend] asked me "So, where is your child? someone at home to take care of them?".. I looked at her and replied "Nope, no children that I have abandoned anywhere".

Her next que "And your husband?" I once again patiently replied "Nope, none that I know still single"

She gaped, went all silent, awkward and slowly edged her way to the other side of the group...  I thought to myself "Are you serious? What on earth would prompt someone to just ask things like that to people they were meeting for the 1st time"...  My friend was like "sorry machan.. she can get quite nosy". I just shrugged it off and let is slide...

A similar instance few years ago came to my mind. This was a friend's sis in law who asked me about marriage, children and when I answered in the negative for both she went on to give me some lowely advice "you know you shouldn't put off these things for long.. you are growing old.. your body can't deal with change. if you want kids, you should start planning now itself.. bla bla bla"... All I did was sit silently and not react. Cos I knew if I reacted it would lead to another string of comments/questions....

These were both women, and I thought it might be a woman thing- being nosy and asking questions. But one guy I met [for matrimonial purposes] actually asked me "Is there something wrong with you? Are you not telling me something? [and here I was gritting my teeth and controlling the urge to have slapped him for all the idiotic things he had uttered].. I just stared at him and asked 'Why would you assume that?"..

He: "No, you are still single... so..."

I:"Umm, yes am single by choice..."

He:"Oh! really?"

I: "yes, really"

He: "Okay.. but you are 30+, so is there anything wrong that I should know of"

I:"Well, there is one thing......"

He: "Ah, see I knew it"

I: "Well, I can't imagine going ahead with this, and can't imagine living with someone like you"

He: "Whaat... why... what happened"

I: "Well, let us just say we aren't compatible.. Goodbye!"

He: "err, I was just asking... don't get angry!"

I: "Are you serious?"
[I bid adieu and walked off... men- gah!]

When will people realise it is my life, I am free to live it my way!
