Now, after a good weekend, organising thyself in a better frame, I wonder why did I have a Monday just like the Mondays one has when she is working full-time? I am not yet employed and hate the feeling that crept in being a Monday as if I am going back to a boring desk at a boring job. That is not me! 🙂 I rather quit a job like that if I get one 😉 or make it interesting enough to kick-off the Monday low-key melodrama! But this feeling that I feel is like I had in India on certain Mondays, specially because we do not have the weekend culture there. I loved my job by the way and when you do what you love to do, you hardly feel you are working! So, the cliché Monday Blues rarely hit me but as most of the jobs in India are 6 days a week, one has only a Sunday to themselves. Some are lucky enough to spend the day in a way they will like to else one is usually trapped in the social or family humdrum 🙂 I must say I am writing this post as today I had that Monday feeling although I do not deserve it 😉 pardon me…just thought to make it end a little interesting with this glass of wine!
*See you later!*
(See who, by the way?) <—- ignore, talking to self and I shall see ‘me’ later.
No, I did not go to any special festival, function or a fair. And No, it is not about having drinks or partying in anyway at the beginning of another weekend – an Australian or Western culture, I am yet to involve in 😉 Just that I had a fantastic Friday, this last Friday that just went by. Pity that I did not write it on the fame I mean, same day! What the… this ‘f’ letter is freaking me out now?! Anyway, back to the Friday: I woke up early, after days being a late sleeper and even more late a riser. How I missed the morning glories and became an owl-like creature past 2 weeks!! Anyway, to the Friday, I owe it again to the SLSA event of hosting a very honourable exhibition of ‘Victoria Crosses‘ (VC) travelling around Australia; currently in Adelaide for 6 weeks. 🙂 I also call my post a fringe because this Friday came as an offbeat and a fresh day for me after the slack. I had fun running around the Adelaide CBD with varied interest and things to do. I had a busy morning due to the State Library event which unfortunately had an interruption due to a quick visit to a lawyer I had to make (for a thankless friend!) followed by a casual lunch with a friend (to whom I am more than Thankful 🙂 ) deliberately done before a casual interview I sat through over a ‘cup of coffee’ at a company. This Friday ended up reviving me for the job-hunt and employment approach altogether after the interview and then being at a seminar regarding the same. 🙂 I need that- don’t I? Nevertheless, the day began with this SLSA playing a host to the VCs exhibit. Now, that is some piece of interesting Australian history but it got me thinking of the Indian ‘Param Veer Chakra’ (PVC) and brave men of my country. Continue reading
Now where was I? I sit sipping coffee at home and it feels as if it has been ages when I last wrote something, nevertheless thoughts keep hitting me and ‘things to do’ buzz in my little mind, knocking hard and soft to come out but I open the door quite late. 🙂 (You should listen to the first knock, you know?) Today, I decide to publish the posts stacked up and realize the ones I did publish were ‘private’ (Now, who did that? Not me! I do not understand these simple tools of the web/wordpress and the likes or umm..I think, I do not WANT to 😉 ) I have had busy and not so busy two weeks and did not know that I have unpublished posts in here! The month of June is coming to an end and I see I have been a slack and have lost the time track quite a bit. Does this happen to any of you, where you do not realize what day or date of the week it is? And look I meant to write about the connections over a cup of coffee I have made but I am facing this short-term memory loss, I guess 😉 Never mind! Continue reading
The stillness out of my room window
And the yellow from the tree
Is not what makes this endurance raw
I know, I really need a spree
Watching out only from my window
Blue, white and the yellow
Nudges me to go out..and
I know, I need a shout
Songs playing on my list are mellow
Mood of my day is I think shallow
And oh! as I write this..
Sunshine enters 🙂 blowing a kiss
This verse is current state of my mind
Thoughts, views, emotions
I sit and grind-grind-grind
Been days and days
Trapped in my small room
I want a break
Any suggestions from anyone;
I’m ready to take!
‘And what is ordinary about you anyway?’
These words brought me to bay
Through out the night and during the day Continue reading
After a few rain showers in the past few days, I see sun shine through my window. It is cold winter time, setting in Adelaide and I feel spirited with the colours I see in and around the city when I walk around. On one side of the street you will see shades of green and the other it might be yellow, brown or orange! I am stunned at times when I walk past and see this small city and its beauty. Adelaide is a very small city and I am told it can be covered walking all around, on foot! Yes, even I experience it everytime I go to the city. And unlike everyone or the ones who work or study in the city, I go to city almost on a daily basis barring few bad days (weather wise or mind wise 😉 )The only thing I can not figure out about Adelaide when I have the time to see around is where to start and end like. North Terrace to South or West to East? I take my time to look in and out but soon I know I am at the same spot again! This has happened even in Melbourne city when I was new but Adelaide is small, isn’t it? I still keep coming back to the same lane or corner, I do not know how? 😉 The center of the city is the King William Street (KW St.) as I believe and it splits into so many other small and big streets as one walks by. I get indecisive which one should I stroll through when I have time with me and then on an instinct, I continue on a different street or a new path but guess what? I soon get mislaid wandering and in a rush to hurry back to my safety zone- KW St.; the time I think I had; is a whoosh 🙂 But this post was not about the city Adelaide, it is supposed to be about the day called ‘sunday’ or a day that absolutely is sunny. When I started to write this post, I remember it was both, it was a real sunny Sunday, 2 weeks back and today I feel this Sunday is different from that one though nothing much has changed in 2 weeks except that the winter days are getting colder and I am thinking more and writing lesser.
—– After another week, I see this post is yet to publish!! What a lazy bum or how ignorant did I be?!
Anyway, it is a Sunday again tomorrow! *Gosh! My weekend is going quicker this time around!* – How about yours? 🙂
I slept for a while tonight. It anyway was past midnight and it was a calm sleep. I felt a little easy – uneasy. There is someone who I look up to and the other one I look down on to 😉 There is space and a concept of time, I refrain from scientific knowledge. There is philosophy and there is art(s) but the world is in a mad-rush of achieving political or economical lemon tarts…sorry I do not know why the hell I want to rhyme when I want to only write normally. And before I divert from what I want to write like I just drifted above with lemon tarts..I think I am hungry. 🙂 Continue reading
