Bye 2014, hello 2015

I think this is going to be my last post for 2014.
I am done packing, I think. I just can’t wait for Wednesday to come! I have such a high adrenaline rush going on that I feel like I have had 20 shots of Espresso. I shall see all of you guys in 2015 now after my trip. 🙂

I faced a lot of ups and downs through the year in many ways. But I want to list down all the months and the most memorable thing that happened to me then.

January– Spending time in Atlanta with Moo and ringing in the new year, really hoping for a better 2014, saying bye to Moo and another loved one leaving.

February– Stupid V-day, my blog’s birthday and it’s surprisingly good growth.

March– My first 5k ever! It’s successful completion and the 7 hour alcoholic blackout after. How can I forget the rattling earthquake!

April– The company golf tournament and the riding in golf-carts all day.

May– Charlie(my ex-roomie’s doggie) went to the rainbow bridge. My first blog award and a very depressing and dark long weekend. I survived 3 very, very bad days. Modi’s election!

June– June was meh.

July– Moony’s happy budday! FIFA!

August– My papa’s surgery. It was a huge emotional roller coaster ride. I had just gone out of visa, so there was nothing I could do. 😦

September– Portland travels. Birthday time. I couldn’t spare a care about my birthday :(. But office friends, Abhi-Nish rose to the occasion and pulled me out and made it very fun.

October– Scube. Scube. Scube. His birthday, his leaving. New tattoo ❤

November– Saturday drinking begin again. Not that I have particularly used the license :). Parents move into the new home!

December– Homebound! Abhi-Nish get hitched!

I hope to have a much better 2015 and accomplish so much more. I am ever grateful to God, family and friends who have been there for me. I will strive my best to match up to your wonderfulness. Special mention to the blog world for being my huge support system.

Wish you all a fabulous new year 2015 and hope this is the beginning of the most wonderful time of your life! May all your wishes and dreams come true. Be it a hottie, some cash or a la-di-dah job. Make it happen!

Some zodiac wreckage

Have you ever come across Chinese zodiac signs? With all the animals? It is supposed to represent all these characteristics and personality traits. I have my own set of animal-type predictions too. It’s all in good humor.

Rat : You are good at scheming against your group. People cannot be open and free in front of you because you will ‘rat out’ to the boss. You cannot perform in a team because you want all the credit at no work. You steal people’s stuff. Being sneaky is a major trait.

Ox : You are the drunk-on-power kind of a person. Unneccessary show of strength is your forte. You have an unreasonable hatred of the red color.

Tiger : You have a very bad habit of challenging and betting. You are prone to losing money at the drop of a hat. Indulgence in crimes and being mean comes easy to you. You are an introvert and you hate people. Even your family. Specially kids. You may want to eat them.

Rabbit : You are dumb. You usually have a chubby body and cute face. You think you can get away with being cute. Although IQ is quite low, you still know pretending to be dumb has made life easy. Specially for the female kind. You have a tendency to take and eat shit from others. Even your own, at times.

Dragon : You have major anger issues. You come across as a total jerk. Your aggression hasn’t earned you friends. You flirt like nobody’s business and are the cheatee in affairs. You breathe fire on people and annoy the sh*t out of them all the time.

Snake : Venomous gossiping is your forte. You have a sharp tongue and your sarcasm has injured many egos. You are the last person to be able to be trusted. You may do well as vamps and villains in TV serials.

Horse : Your excessive energy is a big problem. You annoy everyone around you by ‘horse’ing around too much. You are so beyond the boundary. The boundary is a blur to you. Your food habits are bad. You usually have gassy issues due to excessive munching on ‘chana’.

Sheep : You are extremely selfish. All you think of is ‘meeeeeee’.

Monkey : You steal things like nobody’s business. You are always playing tricks and are a rebel in the society. You have a weird habit of touching people’s hair and food.

Rooster : You make the worst house guest. You have no qualms about waking your hosts up at 4 am by screaming and yelling or singing. You like to provoke people into fights.

Dog : You are a complete doormat. People treat you the way they want and yet you will be around wagging your b*tt at them. You are always greedy for more. You have an insatiable appetite for food.

Pig : You are always hungry and looking around for food. You have no sense of hygeine and may just sit in your own sh*t for the longest time. Your lack of physical food and excessive food makes you overweight.

PS- I am a rabbit. 😜

The Hundie

This is my 100th post. One Hundie. One Hyundai(I drive an Elantra. I digress). It is a big number. I don’t even want to look at my old posts because I may cringe. And I may cringe with the current posts when I write my 200th.

I am going to note down the 5 things, in no particular order, that I have learnt since I started blogging.

1. You may find friends in unknown places. Like blogs. They are much, much better than having 1000 people on Facebook.

2. People may say they don’t care about what others say. But everyone yearns for appreciation. And secretly salivates for it. I am guilty. Appreciation is my drug. So keep saying nice things to me. 😀

3. Blogging about what I feel is like an overnight pimple reducing cream. It momentarily heals it. But it can’t stop the next zit. But heals it when it pops up.

4. Reading blogs motivates me to write better and to expand my 10 cubic cm by volume brain. Also, I like to read about other’s lives. Does that make me a perv?

5. I have realized I am not a feminist, but an equalist. It makes me mad when I read about men’s self-entitlement habits. But it also makes me mad when I read people jumping on men straight up and pretending that women can do no wrong, except if the woman is a mother in law. A change in mindset is needed by both sides. Don’t just rebel for the heck of it.

In other news, the parents have moved into ‘our’ home. It finally was all ready and we got the possession. They are extremely happy and I can’t wait to go home! They have sent me pictures of my name on the letterbox, in the lobby and on the front door. I want to get the last one taken off and just put the last name. The doggie has been taught to use the plants in the balcony for any pee related activities since we had a large backyard at the previous place and he will miss that. Taking him up and down the four floors, even with lifts would be inconvenient. He has always been so good about his bathroom habits that he hates when he has accidents.

We will miss our koyals, sparrows, kingfishers, bharadwajs, squirrels, goats(don’t ask) so much. House sparrows have started coming into the home, so it feels nice. Mom has found a female doggie in the complex called ‘Champi’ that gave birth to 3 pups few days back. We plan to get all spayed in the coming months. So all is okay in the world. We have our fauna.
