back to work…

…but feels more like I’m back in school! πŸ˜€

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 — tornadoand I feel like I used to on those June 1sts, long back πŸ˜‰ .There’s no time for anything. Time seems to fly — and in Concordes, that too πŸ˜‰ 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 IΒ  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 πŸ˜€ ). 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! πŸ˜€ ). 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! πŸ˜€

Happy New Year again, folks!

P.S.: All you people who are single, remain so forever! Enjoy life. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

  1. It should have been Swalpa adjust maadkoli πŸ™‚

    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!


  2. chalo better late than never…..just try to buy a little time from here and there and it will be fine ….. afterall there are 24 hours in a day (on paper atleast… πŸ˜› ) …… just bunk all ur duties once in a while …. time will automatically come by …… πŸ˜€


  3. Dont worry, the post wasnt that bad ;), just kidding ! It had all the usual ‘alphabetworld’ magic and panic πŸ˜€

    You woke up on the foot side??? But how did…why did…what made you??…aaaaaah, never mind, you are married, I can understand ! πŸ˜€

    “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?


  4. 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 πŸ˜‰ now, dont start chasing me!! πŸ˜€ :mrgreen:


  5. @Apar
    πŸ™‚ Yes. It’s taxing, but it’d be boring if it were otherwise πŸ˜‰

    πŸ˜€ Am just a beginner in Kannada πŸ˜€ So, swalpa adjust maadkoli πŸ˜‰
    Which part of JP Nagar?

    Hehe, if there’s 24 hours on paper, there’s more than 28 hours of madness in my life πŸ˜€

    Yes, you are very understanding πŸ˜›
    And be greatful that I told you this atleast now! πŸ˜›
    I think I did…why? I don’t sound like that? πŸ˜€

    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??????????????????????????

    Yes! πŸ™‚

    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 πŸ˜‰
    Take care.. πŸ™‚


  8. @ 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!


  9. @Varun
    Me too!

    yeah…i realise my mistakes πŸ˜€
    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 πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    Hehe…has a good trip? I went to Manali recently too…was lovely!
    Yea, will try tu surface once a while πŸ˜‰

    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 πŸ˜€

    Ahem…I already have passed on the ‘wise’ words tu yur lovely person! πŸ˜›

    Verrry true. Waiting for the bus is the worst part! 😦
