Just Talking

Its been a while since I posted. So today lets just talk, no rants, no exuberance, just talk...

Life was slightly fucked up at work and it was and has been giving me a troubled time, comforting, sometimes scolding words from friends helped keep me sane...hopefully most of that is not past.

Today when I woke up at 6...and having slept at 1a.m. didnt expect it...the world felt relatively nice...went for a walk with bro...but soon the heart again took a tumbling, but then I went out shopping for a book the boss wanted...that one wasn't in stock...but i came back pretty cheerful (and down some money...and up some books for self :) )

We guys (N, G and Me) are trying to cook up a business plan...we thought we had a good idea, but then maybe not. So help us people. We've seen social networks come up right, orkut -> facebook ->twitter, not to mention online dating/matrimonial sites, professional network sites (LinkedIn)...so what is it that you feel these people miss out on...what is that one website you wish was up...

Played tennis one day only, but it was good...my serves are still with me (and thats how i seem to score points, need to work on my stroke play)

Relationships are still a bloody messy area...though i guess in a way thats good...its a pretty interesting part of my life i'd say

One thing i also observed...everybody has some fuck ups in life...and i mean everybody...and when i see everybody else's i feel greatful for the ones i've got...they don't seem that bad

Off to Oman again tonight, slightly skeptical this time but also looking forward to the challenge.

Somewhere in the past few months I lost me...maybe somewhere down the years I lost me...Or maybe to put it...i'm still finding me...Work, relationships, secrets, accusations, quite a decent masala pic...but overall i learnt more about me, and i learnt more about people....not the negative kind...but probably the same thing that I keep saying repeatedly...that everyone has their fears and aspirations...and one lesson for me...don't butt in to help people, if they want your help they'll come to you for it

But more importantly other than about other people I learnt to ask myself...what do I want to be today...at different points in my life I've tried, writing, squash, tennis, chess, blogging, knitting, cooking, badminton, swimming,photography, sketching, etc...i'm a guy who likes to do something new everyday...irrespective of whether i'm good at it or not...it took my dance teacher two months to get me from jumping monkey, to two left feet to 'people if he can do it, so can you' :P

One last bit for today...I'm not a perfect guy, or even a perfect person. I have my own fears and aspirations that drive me. There are things i'm good at, things I'm not so good at and things i absolutely suck at...but whatever I am...I am very comfortable being me...and it took me years to get to this. I don't stop striving to be a better person everyday...but I have no aspirations of being god (Greek, Roman or otherwise :P) either...

with that unconclusive babble...i close today's post :)

You are what you are! And you seem okay with it, so good for you! All the best for Oman. :)

I've realised too that everybody has some sort of mess ups in life, and it's all about perspective. It's how we perceive our own problems that actually defines us.

And yea, good luck in Oman.

If everyone starts thinking this way, who knows down the line everyone might lead a good life ...

Everyone here in this world is trying to know oneself. one who finds him/herself today might loose him/herself again tomorrow..

life is like that,everyone says, isn't it? but why? if i and u start asking these questions , then we might not have time to live at all. life is too short, isn't ? so better live it the way you love to..

Hope life could be more simpler than what it looks like..

hope life could be more better than what it looks like whn framed it as a photo :-)

Cheers

Finally we get a peek-a-boo about your life through this post...

Hey actually I'm fed up of orkut, FB, gmail, tweeter et all..I don't know what exactly I am looking for, confused here...All the best, may you come up with the best business plan - I'm doing the same for past couple of months...just need a push....

I thought doing multiple things at a time was my forte...glad to know its the same with others too..heheh

No one is perfect....I am the Goddess of imperfection..hehe

Have a good trip...bon voyage..

find me a person who is unemployed and his/her life is not fucked up.
