ECHOES – ANNIVERSARY AUGUST

It’s hard to believe that August came and went by also and we are almost towards the end of second week of September. And you are not aware of how time flies only on two occasions – either you are too busy or each day passing by is what you don’t want to remember knowingly. 

Blog Updates:
I just managed to make one post the in all of August month. Didn’t even realize when Aug 12th passed by which was my first blog anniversary month. So many things happened in Aug about which i thought i would be publishing a post for example – friendship day, raksha bandhan, anniversary special etc. but nothing happened. After being occupied with my full-time work for 10 hours and then almost close to 3.5 hours in travel there was nothing left within me to open my laptop and blog anything. I haven’t even managed to post my video review on 6 Degrees an initiative by Blog Adda. So 80% of the reason for me not to blog was work the remaining 20% and more critical was losing my friend about whom i had mentioned in the last post. This month too i signed up for a blog challenge in the hope that it would push me blog regularly in Sep but i think this is my page my blog and it should be more of me on it whenever i wanted to write and whenever i felt to instead of being obligated to write towards it. That is the beauty of blogging i believe. You own everything about it.

Job:
IT job is fun if you love what you are doing, but it becomes a pain when there is no scope left for realizing whether you love or hate your job:P After more than a month now in my new role and company i think i have started loving my role but it does come with lot of responsibilities which am still trying to figure out how to handle it all smoothly. I am loving what i do, just need to come up with a better time management and planning to deal with my subordinates peers and management besides my work. And yeah now i have made good friends to with whom i can talk stuff apart from work which is a huge relief considering am the kinds who cannot talk work all the time neither can remain silent like a person who doesn’t even exist in the office…na na.not me at all.

Losing a best friend:
I lost my first best friend when i was in fifth standard – Asha. She passed away due to brain tumour. Another close friend in an accident some five years back. Losing people to death in any way is a huge loss but losing someone who are old or are not keeping well is something we are always prepared deep down in our hearts but losing someone young someone of around your age all of a sudden comes as a huge shock. I lost one of my closest friends whom i had known for over a decade on Aug 16th. Shiva Anna or Valentine as i used to call him , fought his battle for life for almost two weeks that he was on ventilator but finally gave up and left us all alone here to find peace in heaven. He was the most sweetest and truest human being i had met. A wonderful boss, a supportive elder brother, a caring son, the life of all his friends he was everything a human being should be. I have never seen men crying and shedding tears literally the way i saw them do during the funeral of Shiv. None of us wanted to believe what was going home. I still wish that i wake up one day and realize it was all a bad dream. To know that i wont be able to talk to him ever, or see his number ringing on my phone, not being able to call him and talk or laugh with him hurts terribly. Life is so uncertain. I hope he finds peace above in heaven and strength to his family and all other friends to bear with his loss.

Losing loved ones has only made me realize to love and respect the people whom i have in my life. Never to say goodbye after having a fight or an argument, you never know it might be the last time that you are meeting that person. We have got a short time on this world stage, as long as we live up to the expectations of that role and perform our part beautifully all is good. The whole play would turn out to be beautiful. 

Hoping to be on track this month in the next two weeks that’s left and to manage my pending post to be published, wishing you all a Happy September. Love and Respect the people around you 🙂 

ECHOES – JOYOUS JULY

July was a beautiful month; Totally awesome for so many reasons. I didn’t realize how these 31 days passed by. Hop along to know how i celebrated this month in my Monthly Favorites section called ECHOES and July for me was a JOYOUS JULY ❤ ❤ ❤

Birthday Month:
What other reasons one wants for a month to be special?! It was my birthday and i beautifully turned 29. Can’t believe its my last year in my 20’s and it was as special as any other birthday bringing more happiness, goals and promises to self. Friends make your birthday so special when you are away from family and they have been a major reason for my birthdays to be so beautiful every year, be it grand or small celebrations it has always been perfect in its own way. So many wishes from all over the world, thanks a ton to all the blogging community and some amazing friends i made through blogging which was special. And a bunch of hugs to my always so special dear friends who pamper me with love and more importantly pamper me with unconditional love. #Happybirthdaytome 🙂 Looking forward to complete all the promises i made to self.

Blog updates:
I am happy i managed to make good number of posts(22) through the #halfmarathon hosted by Blogchatter. In fact i finished two challenges one a list of 10 day prompts which was inspired from a fellow bloggers post followed by 5 more adding to it. I am also gonna post the review for 6 Degrees soon which i am about to get complete again something being encouraged by Blogadda team. It would be my first video post,watch out for more on that. Well one thing which i couldn’t complete was the Word High July hosted by my dear friend Maria and her buddy. I did start it on a good note but lost track of it 😦 Something that am not really proud of my first challenge that i couldn’t complete. I would though try to use those words in my blog as and when possible. Its always good to learn a new language.

New Job:
Yeah so besides my birthday the other major life event was my new job, i mean same job but with a new firm with a better role and package 😛 I now work for an Indian company which am really proud about called the Mindtree. Its been more than two weeks and i feel good about it. Anything new in life is always a mixed emotions there is excitement, there is fear, there is fear of rejection and being accepted. Its all about starting from scratch to make your presence and make your own place in a big team.

I have made a bunch of colleagues with whom i can chit and chat so its good. Work is keeping me on my toes. Only thing not good about this whole thing is the travel to work -24 kms to be exact that is summed up by almost an hour and half an over ride broken down in parts first a cab to the metro then half an hour in metro again half an hour and bus for me to reach the office at 9.15 am in the morning. So my whole schedule has been changed right with the time i sleep and wake-up the time i eat and everything else. But every trouble and pain is worth the peace of mind i get when i wake up each day to head to work that i love.

Cloud raiders: 
Remember last time when i mentioned about this game which i am addicted to Cloud Raiders ? Well the addiction is only getting stronger 😛 That time i was on level 13 and today am currently at 39 with a lot more army and a decent kingdom. Check out the image below. Its a strategic game with lot of thinking and more than that lot of patience needed. Every time i make an upgrade to one of my weapons it takes min 12 hours which i need to wait unless i spend money (literally money) and buy time. Liking the game..oh let me correct..loving the game! 🙂WhatsApp-Image-20160629

This is my first post in the month of August. One of my best friend is in the ICU for over a week now and is on ventilator after a brain hemorrhage. I request you all to pray for him and for a miracle to happen. He is one of the most purest souls i have met in my lifetime. Having known him for more than a decade now its really a tragedy to see him like this. 😦 All he needs is our prayers and for that miracle to happen.  #prayforShiva

 Hope your July month was fantastic, its almost half a month in August so late to ask that question was not in the mood really. Lets enjoy each day with our loved ones because life is so uncertain.
