Today is the World Hugging day!
Been pestering a friend to give me something to write...after a lot of coaxing and cajoling and sighing...she finally said, "write about hugs day thoughts (good riddance!!!)" I am writing...or rather trying to!

What is there in a hug?

A good feeling...don't know what...but still a good feeling...

Warmth...thinking about the times when my mother used to hug me...
Support and consolation....the time when me and my cousin hugged when my grandma died...
Feeling of elation and joy...the time when we hug after winning a tight game of cricket...
Feeling playful and pseudo"evil" (complete with the fingers ala Dr.Evil!)...when I bearhug my friends...

Touch is such a powerful speaks a universal language. Understood by all animals and even plants I daresay!

One of the best touch?
A Hug!

Happy Hugs Day!

P.S: I started writing this on 21st January! Its 12:01 AM on 22nd now! :P

One door closing...will any other open?

It seems my life is being sucked into a of all people, suffering a never ending torture...
University has screwed me again, this time with a big spade!

My exam was preponed mere days before happening and I had no clue!
Yeah, yeah! Call me a dumb ass! But still it was not supposed to happen!
and an unfair revaluation rejection...

So, whatsupwiththat?

Likelihood of losing my job...I would be really glad if I lose that big raise that everybody is looking forward, rather than the job. TBMS has been running through my vain for the past 4 months and it would be great loss...for the company! :-P

End of the road?
Not quite...another offer may materialize (just may!) or I would have to go and teach some new kids what technical communication is all about for some 8 months or so! Not that I am not fond of it, but the pay will be a pittance...once hooked to can never get the kick off!
With my experience it would be arrogance to speak about money...still...talent=money in my book!

Will get a clearer picture in the coming days...probably today...
For me clearer would be the apt word. Haziness and uncertainty will never cease in my life...never!

P.S: A wonderful site I stumbled upon Self Creation. I liked it immensely. If only people had the mind and patience to read through, they would be happier in life.

Stairway to Heaven

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
And when she gets there she knows if the stores are closed
With a word she can get what she came for

Woe oh oh oh oh oh
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
And you know sometimes words have two meanings
In the tree by the brook there's a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven

Woe oh oh oh oh oh
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west
And my spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who stand looking

These words...strike a chord with me...

Welcomed new year with this song!

Usually my new years eve is at Father's club. Pretty boring affair with no friends around. This time was adamant not to go. Also, the fact that I had to go to office today on a holiday helped from giving him any ill feeling.

Last year was pretty important to me...for a multitude of reasons...

How will this year be?

Only time will tell...the start was'nt very good I must say...

A totally unnecessary squabble, Mother being ill and my first schedule slippage...

Have'nt missed a single deadline till now...So a bit sad about that...

I was trying to bite a little too much and sometimes a reminder is good...

You are Human...Not God!

Happy New Year everybody!

May this year be filled with more pleasures and less pain!
