Doctor's orders!

ah, hello there. I'm back, I took an impromptu off yesterday and here I am, back at my desk. . . being invisible, so much fun.

On an unrelated note,  I just watched Hasee toh Phasee, and that Siddharth Malhotra has been making me feel all kinds of sensations, he's in that list now, right up there with Randeep Hooda, John Abraham, Ranveer Singh. . . sigh! (Farhan - sexy-voice- Akhtar used to be in that list, but he kind of lost the plot with Shadi ke side effects), but back to Mr. Malhotra, with him I realized that I have a type, the tall and sexy, luckily the universe was in the know a long time ago, coz the lawyer falls right into that category, the man is 5'10" and . . .well. . . moving on.. . .

So the doctor visits continue on the side, these days she does the internal ultrasound and throws complicated words at us, like the follicle has ruptured and is on its way, we blink and wait for the English translation. What follows is a gargantuan effort to not laugh in he…

Nostalgia and ramblings. . .

So I reread the blog a bit, turns out I'm a bit of a dhakka start when it comes to my job, its a pattern really, take the first job for example, it was weeks, nay months before I came into my own and started enjoying it. You'd think when I finally switched jobs and joined a start-up I'd be loaded with work right from day one, nope, I just read an old post of mine where a month into that job I was lamenting about how I saw no point in waking up and braving a chilly December morning only to stare at the monitor all day.

Here I am, third job, decent pay, dreary office, 2 weeks in and watching sitcoms on my phone. I'm lounging about, didn't go to the gym this morning, just . . .aiwen hi.

I finished watch How I met Your Mother yesterday , although it got superbly boring for a while there, I still got sad when it ended, I remember how it was the next big thing after Friends  and all my hosteler friends couldn't stop raving about it. Now its funny that not many of th…

How things are. . .

So since we last spoke, 2 things happened, I joined the office gym and have been going for the past few days. It does fee good to be on the treadmill everyday and run a little bit longer each time, but I have this tiny suspicion that I might no last, as usual. But I'm going to try anyways. Oh, I went to the gym today for 10 mins though, I blame it on fridays!

The other thing that has happened behind your back, is that I consulted a doctor on the conception thing. As I laid out the facts to her, part of me wanted to run out of the room while part of me was filled with hope, that this might help. So what she asked of me was this, she gave me specific days to go get an ultrasound done and basically monitor my uterus to see if everything was fine. Now the thing about this ultrasound is that its an internal!. . . so the kind doctor takes this stick like equipment and ..er...sticks it in. Its literally poking around in somebody's business. The last ultrasound wasn't great, I me…

Bitten. . . .

. . . . . by the travel bug.

2014 ignited in me a fervent passion for travel, there are some passing days when I sit up take notice and feel this need to travel like there's no tomorrow, this urgency to see the world and drink in all that it offers, to walk unfamiliar cobblestone pathways and fill journal after journal with the details.

I feel blessed for the experiences I've had so far, for the memories I've made, the chill in the air in Australia, the beaming sunshine of San Fran, the madness of Goa, the lap of luxury in Napa Valley, and yet as I recount these memories, I feel there's so much more to do.

On idle days like these, I sit here making my imaginary plans for buying Eurail passes from France to Germany or seeing the theatre in London. My mind is pulled in a hundred different directions, stretched to its limits, its like I want to see it all,go everywhere.

So here's my list, the places I wish to cover in the next 5 years, let's see if I can will lif…

New beginnings. . . ?

So its been a while since we last spoke, In my hiatus, I read a bevy of great blogs ad books, went through some ups and downs in life but could never really come here and put my thoughts to paper.

Why am I here now?

Because I started a new job, its my third day at work and I have nothing to do. I can't run from the blog no more.

Lets start from the very beginning shall we?, Last you heard I knew I had a bad job, I was confused about what to do further and I was beggining to realise that probably other places I was interviewing for would be worse for me than this office.

So this is what happened after that, It dawned upon me that the place I worked in wasnt bad, it was pretty transparent and they recognised my potential, perhaps better than I did. But my problem was that I could juggle the work and my personal life, I had none to speak of, here I was married and living with my in laws, and slogging it out for 10 hours everyday at work, and then some more by taking calls from home.…
