Exhausted !!

Just came back from a 15 hour shift  :( 

God ! I dont remember how I used to endure (and enjoy) such long hours when I was actually employed. 

It must have something to do with the unending supply of coffee I am sure 



Imagine there's no Heaven 
It's easy if you try 
No hell below us 
Above us only sky 
Imagine all the people 
Living for today 

Imagine there's no countries 
It isn't hard to do 
Nothing to kill or die for 
And no religion too 
Imagine all the people 
Living life in peace 

You may say that I'm a dreamer 
But I'm not the only one 
I hope someday you'll join us 
And the world will be as one 

Imagine no possessions 
I wonder if you can 
No need for greed or hunger 
A brotherhood of man 
Imagine all the people 
Sharing all the world 

You may say that I'm a dreamer 
But I'm not the only one 
I hope someday you'll join us 
And the world will live as one 

- Lyrics - Imagine by John Lennon

I am incorrigible. 

I know I cant handle horror movies, scary sci fi shows, all that violence etc. And yet, I watched 2 episodes of heroes. Alone. At night. 

Result - Couldnt sleep :( 
I finally slept at 4.30 or 5  i guess. So, the first thing i did after getting up was shift+delete all those scary shows..
Hope I remember the lesson and not repeat the mistake again.

Anyways, weekend again !!

Plans for today... not really sure. And i love it. Will try to finish off the work soon and have the evening all for myself. hmm.. that would be nice :)

Happy Weekend !

Smiles are contagious

Remember when I talked about making tiny little changes in people's lives that makes them perhaps a bit happier?

Most probably not. Because I havent talked about it yet. 

In pune, I used to take the bus to the office. My agenda for the 30 minutes ride would be to make one person-  smile. I did succeed most of the times. And it just takes a flick and a smile on your part. Really easy.

And it makes you happy. Used to set the tone for the day.

Inner peace

Inner peace.. 
inner peace
inner peace
inner peace

Remember the scene from the flick Kung Fu panda where master Shi Fu (poor soul) keeps chanting "inner peace" and drifts further and further away from it?

Why is it so difficult? All it calls for is that one stops worrying about all the worldly troubles and problems.. And since one knows that worrying never helped anyone, it shouldnt be so tough right?

Wrong !

At least for the majority of us. The simplest of pleasures that comes so naturally to a child, is rare, elusive for us. Dimagh dukh jaya karta hai soch soch ke...

Inner peace.. inner peace.. inner peace..

Wishful thinking

i hoped

that things were different
that there were no lies
no hurt nor pain

that a good gesture
need not have a hidden motive

and that people grow up
and retain childhood innocence

that everyone had enough food and shelter 
and nobody killed each other anymore

no bombs, no screams,no noise, no silence
everybody sang and danced together

that i grew up to be an artist
making money was neither important nor tough

that a person was not judged by what he wears or looks like
that losing weight was not difficult

that i had a time machine
and an audi (in matching colors)
and knew how to drive it

Got drenched again and.. uhh..

Its funny how often I fall into the trap of the Halo Effect.

And I regret and resolve not to get biased even one more time. [yeah kind of like the promise I made to myself back at MNIT never to visit the gym again. No wait.. not that]

But I could have been right this time. We never found out. Yes, of course it sounds cruel.

Anyways. No harm was done.


And thats that

Confessions of a silly mind

I think its high time I admitted something really foolish..

In fact I have just realized it and its .. funny and silly.. I am infatuated with the british(or the so called/potrayed in movies) countryside. Totally. Yeah i know, I am saying all this from what i have gathered watching movies and reading books. But still..

Oh.. Its so silly.. Its like i am ageing backwards and subsequently my brains are getting reduced to that of a teenage schoolgirl.

haha.. that would be fun of course.

(Gigi dear.. I am so sorry.. I tried writing abt what u said. I cant. You see, I am still a schoolgirl. Have a lot of growing up to do.)

Got drenched in rain. Puposefully of course(and loved it)

All I need now is a hot cup of tea. or two..

While the Sun shines

The first thing that came to my mind as I woke up this morning was that I have only one more day here !!

I really really really dread going back to college. I do :(
Dear God, please make the nest 5 months go by real quick. Please.

And I made khandvi today. Khandvi is a Gujarati dish. And it turned out to be okay.. (Took pictures as a proof. Will post them when I get back.. hehe)

A big and blue sky

It rains here. A lot.

The rain Goddess is like a bright, shiny, happy girl who doesnt care for schedules.. Hence the happy bright kind of rain and not the dark and gloomy variety.

And the sky is so big and blue. If only I could carry some of this back to college. sigh.. :)

Tried out my culinary skills again. And just for the records -i did okay. which means it wasnt burnt, overly salty or soggy or spoilt in other numerous ways possible.

And today I cycled all around the neighbourhood. felt nice, really nice. I guess it must be at least 10 years since I cycled.

Lovin it.
