New life

Yes. I am writing again. After hundred light years.
And I am good with alibis. But we shall not talk about that today. This is a new beginning. A renaissance of sorts. If you haven't noticed yet, look around- my new template, my new 'about me', the new font :) Boy! Have I missed this place or have I?  I have been procrastinating for too long. But this is it. And everything is just perfect. Bangalore weather is to die for! It has its mystic ways of making me feel good about things around me. Or perhaps, Beatles' Free as a Bird is enhancing the charm of the entire set up. After very long, I am not going to sulk and crib in my post. Life is good. With its bouquets and brickbats. Weekdays are brickbats, weekends are bouquets. And so I write today. Now I understand the whole big deal about the last two days of the week.

So, how goes life my pretty people of Blogville? I have not been able to keep in touch or read your blogs :( but now I promise I would. I am going to start from a clean slate now. And no more looking back, I promise.

This new life of being an independent-working-woman has not begun to suck yet. I am enjoying every bit of it. Pay cheque at the end of the month makes all the ordeals at work, worth it. There are bright days and dark days. But on a breezy weekend evening, like today, I'd only remember the brighter ones. I would consider myself to be self-made.I have made up till here without having a godfather. Alone. And I am going to strive more... to reach that peak where I have set my eyes. In the last two months of working, one thing that I have realised is that no one has your back. You have to stand for yourself. And save your neck. There are certain things you have to take for granted and accept them. Once that is done, you'll have a skin thick enough to survive in the advertising industry.

As was told by one of my teachers in college, on the job there are several things that one would need to unlearn, learn and relearn. And I am doing just that. Unlearning and relearning. Not just work, but also life. This is a new phase and I am unlearning a lot of things. Getting new perspectives. Being a new person. Perhaps, this is what you call growing up. Hey, it's happening!

So until next weekend.. Ta! Be good. Catch you on the other side of the week.
