…but feels more like I’m back in school! 😀
Strangely, I had been a school-goer (wonder what my parents were thinking!)…and I vividly remember trudging back to school every June 1 — when the monsoon sets in, full force, in God’s Own Country. Wet uniforms and wet socks, which causes incessant chills and itch-under-the-feet respectively, was never an issue for the teachers and parents. Students were expected in class everyday! Bah!
The situation is more or less similar now as well. After a break of 157 days from work (!!!), I joined back this monday — and I feel like I used to on those June 1sts, long back 😉 .There’s no time for anything. Time seems to fly — and in Concordes, that too 😉 Before I know, it’s morning and I’m struggling to wake up. Before I’m ready to be awake, I’m already in the bus. Before I’m settling into my seat, I’ve reached office. Before I even take in the jobs for the day, it’s time to catch the last bus home. Before I’m properly seated and letting out a tired sigh, I’m stepping into the kitchen. Before I finish chewing the first tid-bit, it’s time to sleep…and before my eyelash-neighbours kiss each other goodnight, it’s time to wake up!
And being married doesn’t help at all. Hehe…I can’t be lazy anymore. Can’t over-sleep. Can’t quit breakfast anymore. Can’t quit dinner anymore. In fact, there’s no point in doing all that — because I have to prepare food, no matter what I choose to do.
Either I shift this house (it’s a really nice one!) somewhere close to Race Course Road; else, I get my boss to shift office to J.P. Nagar (highly unlikely 😀 ). Living 13 kms (read as 1.30 hours one-way travel) away from your workplace is not the most intelligent thing to do in Bangalore. Sigh!
All this translates into ‘no time for blogging’! That’s what I’m hating the most about this entire arrangement! And once you take a break from blogging, it’s damn tough to come back (as I’ve proved more than once already! 😀 ). And New Year Resolutions are just not meant to be!!! Like any other genius, I also took one — to blog everyday. So far, I’ve hopelessly failed in that!
From what I see, the year has started on the wrong note…or was it me? Ummmm…now let me re-cap — which side of the bed did I wake up on Jan 1? The foot-side, I guess! See… I’m not even making any sense here in this post! First post of 2009. And this is, so far, my worst post ever! I pity all you readers for the rest of the year. But swalpa adjust maadi; keep visiting, keep reading! 😀
Happy New Year again, folks!
P.S.: All you people who are single, remain so forever! Enjoy life. 😉 😀
Enjoy life this way…I for one yearn for such a life 🙂 Guess the grass is greener on the other side always!
It should have been Swalpa adjust maadkoli 🙂
Don’t worry! we’ll adjust! If going back to work after a long weekend is bad, I can imagine how bad it can be to go back after 159 days… And hey, I too live in JP Nagar!
Dont worry, the post wasnt that bad ;), just kidding ! It had all the usual ‘alphabetworld’ magic and panic 😀
You woke up on the foot side??? But how did…why did…what made you??…aaaaaah, never mind, you are married, I can understand ! 😀
“All you people who are single, remain so forever! Enjoy life”….and now you are telling me !!!
Psst..Pssst…so you DID go to school, huh?
I never knew u’re in Bangalore! But however, namma bengaluru just adds to your misery I guess. Except for the traffic, everything is full of life. but my dear comeback queen, this post was not as taxing on me as u’ve expressed. I’m amused at your life-circus 😉 now, dont start chasing me!! 😀
going back to work, school… uff… wherever that is… its hard
Welcome back 🙂 ..
did i mention AGAIN 😛
oops forgot to mention
Happy new year ..
happy new year to u too!
🙂 Yes. It’s taxing, but it’d be boring if it were otherwise 😉
😀 Am just a beginner in Kannada 😀 So, swalpa adjust maadkoli 😉
Which part of JP Nagar?
Hehe, if there’s 24 hours on paper, there’s more than 28 hours of madness in my life 😀
Yes, you are very understanding 😛
And be greatful that I told you this atleast now! 😛
I think I did…why? I don’t sound like that? 😀
Life circus, eh? Hmmm…interesting thought.
By the way, yu in blore too? Yea…B’lore adds misery to my life everyday!
And…where is my card??????????????????????????
@ priya: lolest.. may b u shud make a deal wid ur hubby- one day he makes breakfast n u make dinner n d next day u make breakfast n he makes dinner.. afterall, its d duty of husbands to serve their wives.. aint it? n u know wat? u shud hav made such deals even before marriage!!! 😀
@ vimal: therinjuko.. purinjuko.. i might one day give the same advise to ur better half too.. so u better be mentally, physically(without any fractures i mean) n skilfully b prepared to serve ur wife! 😛
i know how hard it is to get back to work after so long…
We had gone on a visit to Chandigarh, Manali and Amritsar for 10 days.. and its hangover lasted for 2 weeks.. no one felt like returning back to college, lectures, practicals, assignments and the like!!
Anyway, keep blogging whenever u get the time to.. we’ll adjust 😉
Take care.. 🙂
U being in Bangalore makes it easier and better to give it personally. I would love it! wt say!?! 🙂
@ Av : Dont you even come anywhere close to my house 😀
@ Priya : Dont listen to AV!!! she is as it is very confused ;). kudumbam kalangum penney !!! (family will stir, girl-ey):D
@ vimal: o cmon dude.. y wud i come over to ur place to ‘stir ur family’?? i can sit right here eating potato chips n do it right! n i’d sure stick to my word. believe it or not!
Happy New Year!!! And I too live at a distance of 1.5 hours from office. And its worse in the evenings. The traffic makes it 2.5 hours!! 😦
yeah…i realise my mistakes 😀
As fr him making breakfast, well…it’s better that we don’t make anything n go ungry; than make something n not eat it 😀 😀
Hehe…has a good trip? I went to Manali recently too…was lovely!
Yea, will try tu surface once a while 😉
I say ok! But you’ll probably have to come n wait at my office gate in the evenings…hopefully, someday I’ll be able to come out at a time I promise 😀
Ahem…I already have passed on the ‘wise’ words tu yur lovely person! 😛
Verrry true. Waiting for the bus is the worst part! 😦
@ Priya – LOL!! who said it isnt good? edukkatte vadi?? ;P
@ Vimmuuu – i guess ill help av in her task..wat say?
😀 Thanks…venda…nalla article — best of it’s kind…ok? 😛
Waiting isn’t an issue. Race course road right!?! its quite an easy drive from my place. prolly around 12 km. 🙄 but all is fine to fulfill a promise. 😛
Stop cribbing! I live 20 kms away from office! 😀
Happy New Year! I can’t believe you joined back! Sheeesh!!
