I thought about writing "Corporate Weirdos - Part 3 " and even saved the title in draft mode about 2 days back. The plan was to write about a highly evolved & mutated version of of the more commonly found 'Work Shirker'. I had got flash sightings of this species in the corporate jungle that I am part of, about 2 days back when I saved the title in the draft mode. However, I forgot to map the key characteristics in my mind's camera and now it's gone. And the more generic species has enough written about it, so I don't want to add my two pence. Whenever the next sighting of this species occurs, I shall update you about the same.
But today, I am gonna write about "Weekend Blues" .Yea, you read that right...Not "Monday Morning Blues", but on the contrary "Weekend Blues". Definition of "Weekend Blues" from Tinker Bells Dictionary of Terms"You have been working for 12-16 hours from Monday to Friday and your univer…
I have been planning to write in detail about our trip, but one thing led to another and I never got around it till now. The details are quite hazy now, but I am going to put down a few pointers to jog my memory about this beautiful trip in future !
1. For the first time, we searched for 'Indian food' wherever we went. My younger one wanted rice and while we were on the road, we relied on Indian restaurants. The days we were staying in apartments, I cooked rice and packed it for the trip ahead. The quality of both rice as well as curds in UK were better than in India. They were cheap too !
2. Potato chips was our staple snack.
3. Desserts from supermarkets were lovely too and we enjoyed the sheer variety on offer !
4. Western Ireland is beautiful. Extremely so ! Living in God's Own Country means that natural beauty has to be really really great for me to feel 'wow'. And Ireland did make me go 'wow' many times over.
Yes, I have been absent from this space for close to a year. I didn't write my customary 'year that was' and 'the year that will be' posts...I was being more active on whatsapp and whatsapp groups and this has resulted in me neglecting this space. But, there is a certain joy in writing, and so here I am back again. For the better part of this year, we have been house hunting (unsuccessfully) and so the status quo continues as of now. There was also a month long trip to New Zealand, details of which entail a whole new post. As I am nearing 40, I realize that my priorities have changed. My 20 year old self would probably hardly know my current self. Though the bucket list keeps getting modified, there is still a bucket list and items do get ticked off from it periodically. On the professional front, two such dreams have now been ticked off ! 1. To be able to work on my own terms and 2. To work abroad. Yes, its a beautiful journey - this journey of life !
