All of a sudden..

..I'm starting to appreciate the complexity of human psychology. I have this sudden raving to study psychology. Reminds of a movie crash.
How the decision one person makes, which is the best for himself and people he knows, affects thousands of other people in ways he will never know.

I need to start searching good books on psychology to read.

Some craft

Yes, real craft this time and how satisfying the feeling is.
Found this nice site with instructions on making paper flowers of various types
Tried out the first one.
Here's the flower without colors

And here's the finished product

Keep listening for more finished flowers :)

I know this isn't

..the best theme possible, but I intend on changing and beautifying this with CSS as per my ideas and a lot of inspiration from design shack

So stay tuned. You might want to give me feedback as I improve the theme incrementally.
Looking forward to completing this task I have taken upon myself :)

The medical checkup

My company announced that we could undergo a medical checkup, the company would bear the cost.
Anything that's free sounds good right? So after much ado we scheduled our checkup and reached early (8:30 is really very early!)

As soon as we went in we were asked to fill out a form, which apart from other details had a question "Nature of work" I had to think really hard, but then since I could not think of anything but sedentary, I went with my neighbor who wrote "software engineer"

Next was the drinking water test. Drink, drink and drink but the USG expert was not satisfied. Wonder why all the guys passed the test in the first go and all us girls were asked to drink more water! I will keep away from water for quite some days now.

Then the blood that they extracted for test(s), which I am sure will last me the tests for a few years now. And he could not find my vein, so he made three holes as compared to only two for others.

The other tests were not as complicat…

The TOI Pune Festival

This year, I happened to attend a few events lined up as part of the Times Of India Pune Festival.
Most, rather all of which I attended, were musical events. There were a couple of plays and cookery events which I didn't attend.

Anyhow, so the ones I attended were :

First one, Shaan's musical concert at Amanora Park Town
This one seemed to be promising, at the newly built Amanora Park Town. The name sounds grand and the mall looks grand, but the approach road to the ground? Doesn't that need to be grand too? Or even a normal tar road? Maybe that is not really important then. Second thing was the parking. There was no parking arrangement at the ground. Park your vehicle as and where you wish on the rocky road!
Worse, Times distributed passes, but Amanora distributed VIP passes. All those who were not VIP were supposed to stand! That was also not so bad, but then you should start the program on time. They started at 8:30! Ohh and did I tell you about the entry lines?
Yes, t…

I'm just beautiful me!

These verses are from the song "Who says" by Selena Gomez. I just can't get over the lyrics. They are so real, so true, so perfect!

I'm no beauty queen, I'm just beautiful me You got every right to a beautiful life, come on
Who says, who says you're not perfect Who says you're not worth it Who says you're the only one that's hurting Trust me that's the price of beauty Who says you're not pretty Who says you're not beautiful, who says?

I'm no beauty queen, I'm just beautiful me You got every right to a beautiful life, come on

Who says you're not star potential
Who says you're not presidential
Who says you can't be in movies
Listen to me, listen to me

Who says you don't pass the test
Who says you can't be the best
Who said, who said?
Would you tell me who said that, yeah
Who said

I'm no beauty queen, I'm just beautiful me You got every right to a beautiful life, come on

A New Year!

Another year gone by, time to reflect and make a rough plan of what I want to achieve this year. I started this last year and hope to continue this tradition.

The year that was, 2011
* Professional life, a little dip I would say. Friends gone, group gone and a lot of new people. Atmosphere has changed and hoping it will be positive this year.
* Meagre blogging! Really, look at the posts I published this year, and its only 12! Yes, I have two more blogs, the movie and the books and the reason I separated them is so that I could keep this one focused on me! But it seems I have lost focus about the most important person, myself :|
* My new Activa and my Droid :) (Yes, I didn't write about my bike :| There are so many of my posts lying in the drafts folder :| )
* My first flight was in 2011. A company trip to Hyderabad to attend the Java One Technical Fest. (Yes, this post is still in drafts :| )
* I did read quite a few books this year. Not as many as I would have liked, but I am pr…

An eventful last week of the year!

Yes, I wrote a similar post last year too. And luckily we kept this tradition intact. Last week of the year..with family :)

Here are the highlights:

- Its great to know people who explore new places/fun stuff/food and are not mean enough to hide details from you. They wish for you to go and experience the fun as they did. There are some people, rare to find though, who are still kind enough.

- Spending time with family is awesome! Specially when you get to plan the trips and get your parents to enjoy the stuff you experienced :)

- Airtel network is bad..real bad! It leaves you when you need it the most! And I hate Airtel!

- If the food being served/made is good, it doesn't mean that your appetite has increased three-fold :p
Learn to limit the intake, especially of "non-diet-friendly" food :D

- Sometimes, your priorities will conflict. And you have to make a choice. You can't keep everyone happy, but one person you should keep happy, is, yourself!

- James Bond movies…
