What was good about the first month of the decade?

I started making two friends at my workplace. This is really a huge thing for me as it’s been almost 10 months that I have been here. I got used to the place here but not to the people. I was eating my meals alone half of the time. Not that it bothered me to eat alone, but yeah, I never had anybody who’d want to eat with me without any compulsion.

Yes, I may be at fault for not ‘socialising’ with people. I know I am very cautious about picking friends now.

I really had no plans to let anyone cross the concentric circles of my zones any time soon. It just happened that I could connect with these people. Plus it is also about the vibes.

I am just getting to know them. Let’s how how it turns out to be…

Also, I have been trying to stay calm.
I have been trying to take things a lil easier.
I blogged consistently for the whole month of January. Okay, I skipped two days. But that’s fine. Cheat days are allowed.

But yeah, I might blog a lil less in the coming months due to my studies. If I fall short of time, I’ll start scheduling posts of this series and Let it Bleed prompts to stay active.

  1. Good morning (my time)!! I sent you an email re bloggercommunity.
    Here, though, I want to tell you that what you’ve written here could have been written by me. I’ll write a post and ping you. Have a great day!

    1. Belated Happy Birthday! Small steps matter. An ocean is made of drops 🙂 What is your book about?


      1. Book is about two brothers (my uncles) who drove from London to India with 3 strangers. True account. 20 days wedged in a car. Fingers crossed I can get it published this year…

  2. First month was very relaxing for me. Most of the business team we work for were in a holiday mood, followed by some workshops that they attended and then I took a vacation for a week. So overall, no late night calls and had ample time with family. I would hate it when the calls would resume this month. Sigh!

    1. Glad that you had a fantastic month. A week’s off is just lovely. Did you go for a vacation? Work related late night calls?

      1. yes, I went to Chennai after two years and met a whole lot of my relatives. the week just went by in a blink.
        After death and taxes, work related late night calls is a reality for people working in IT industry in India. That’s inevitable as long as the clients and bosses are in other end of the world.

      2. That’s horrible. Are there night shifts in IT?
        In media, our last shift get over by 1 am


      3. It really depends on the kind of services and nature of jobs and the roles that we play. But yes some companies have complete night shifts called as graveyard shifts
