New year is here and I have been missing in action from last 3+ months. It’s the longest time I have been away from my blog. I have never taken such a long break from blogging. Even though I could not log into my blog and scribble something, I have been reading posts on my phone. But since it is not so easy to comment from phone, I have been a silent reader. Next few months are going to be crazy busy so I am sure I will not have time for blogging. But I promise to be back to regular blogging and commenting soon.
Last year was pretty uneventful since we did not do much traveling nor did I get time to do much photography. So I had nothing to write on this blog and that’s one of the reasons for not blogging. Also I started writing in a journal last year. I don’t write everyday but only on days when I feel like scribbling something. After writing for couple for months did I realize how liberating it was. I can write anything and everything that comes to my mind and I am the only reader of that journal. Not even husband has access to it. Other than that, I have been reading books (finished 39 books last year) and watching TV a lot.
We finished watching all the seasons of How I met your mother, Seinfeld and we are now watching Friends. It’s nice to watch all the episodes back to back. There is a continuity which was missing when I watched these series earlier on cable.
Other than that, I got hurt thanks to some insensitive comments from others (as always). A friend commented sometime back about how “my job must be giving me lot of time for family”. Another friend also made a similar comment about my previous job. She had even told her mother that I had lot of free time at hand and her mother also made a comment on that. On what basis are these people coming up with these conclusions? I have no idea. I never told them I had lot of free time. In fact, my husband knows how busy my work life is. In my previous job, I used to leave office at 8 in the night. If that is not a busy work life, then I wonder what is. I guess it is more about “grapes are sour”.
One of my friends always likes to comment about my college roommates, about how they were bad and gave me a bad time. She likes to ask me if I am in touch with my old roommates in front of 10 people, just so that she can remark how I did not get along well with them. What if I made fun of her in a similar manner in front of others? What if I told how she was kicked out of her project by her professor since she was doing a crappy work?
One of the people I know here said my parents visited me twice in last 2 years, again in front of other people. I was not sure why she was bothered about it. They just visited me once in last 3 years after I forced them. Also I paid for their ticket, lodging and food so why is she so concerned about it? I don’t understand why some people cannot mind their own business.
Some people are careless about everything I guess. A couple who stayed in this apartment before we moved in, have not updated their address on any website. We receive their tax forms, bank statements, letters about their car, insurance documents and everything else. It has been 2 years now and we are still receiving their mails. Are they not wondering where their mails are? And what do they do when they need to file their taxes?
I will be back to blogging soon with more updates and posts. Thanks to Dil for making me get back to blogging.
Till then, cya.
