ಕಂಡು ಕಾಣದಂತೆ ನಕ್ಕ ನಿನ್ನ ನಗು,
ಚಂದ್ರನ ಅಚ್ಚೆನಿಸುವ ನಿನ್ನ ಮುಖ,
ಹಿಂತಿರುಗಿ ನೋಡದೆ ಹೋದ ನೀನು,
ಕಂಡಿದ್ದು ಕನಸಲ್ಲೊ, ಇಲ್ಲ ನನಸಲ್ಲೋ!?
ನೀನು ನನ್ನ ಪಾಲಿನ ದೇವತೆಯೋ, ಇಲ್ಲ ಮಾಯೆಯೊ!?
It appears to me that things as simple as a song that is close to your heart, or matches your inner feelings; or a monologue from a movie that you can relate to you the most, or how you want to live; a friendly conversation with a person you are comfortable with; fancying that everything will just fall right in place; thanking someone for all the good they have done to you; praising someone, genuinely for the way they are; wanting to help someone beyond your limits and taking measures to really help; working on something you like the most; among various other aspects, DO increase the positivity inside you.
It has been nearly 2 months since I started using the gym facilities at my new office. It has been good so far. I think I’m able to hold on to it as a serious hobby, and I will continue.
It reminds me of those days when math was intimidating back in the school, and I wished that I become as expert as my teacher was, overnight. It took a lot longer than overnight, and we did learn math decently well, and scored well.
I’m mature enough now, and don’t want to get good physique overnight, because, I like the taste of the physical exercise.
I wonder to what extent people depend on the reminders on the top right corner of their Facebook pages to wish those in their circle for birthdays.
I stopped using Facebook a few weeks ago. And _nobody_ wished me for my birthday this time which was earlier this week while my fb account was inactive.
Well, to me, birthday is just another day. And quite honestly it doesn’t bother me if people don’t remember it. But it did bring me some strange feeling and it is an unexplainable thought that we are so badly dependent on these internet sources to remember these so called special occasions. :)
It’s a personal preference on how one organizes and memorizes these special days and special people. But, those wishes that reach us without the top-right-corner reminders reminding them are perhaps the wonderful ones. That need not be the case always, too. Example, My little sister wished me today for my birthday though. And I replied with an upset face, ‘you keep them. I don’t need your belated wishes’. :) She smiled. I think I still kept those wishes. I wouldn’t want to give them back contrary to what I said.
I left Nokia for Cisco last week. It was 4yrs 6months of tenure. I’m a lot confident than I was when I joined, I made some good friends, learnt new things, and above all, I got to know myself more.
I’m missing my team, and new office is a little boring now. I’m still juvenile. I wish to grow up and growing up sucks. I think I will get busy with work next week, and I’m sure it is all going to be fine. I don’t recall any such feeling of going away from people from the last 2 companies I left. I felt nothing. I was happy to leave those places. This one was tough probably because I stayed longer, and I had many people. May also be because I’m probably going through the terrible phase of the quarter life crisis! I cried during the farewell and I can’t explain what I was going through. The farewell was such overwhelming. For some time I feared if I deserved all that good treatment. My team was so nice.
Gone are the days we miss. A lot of people walk in, and out of our lives. It is matter of staying happy with the moment that should be practiced. Tough at times though..
Anyways, I’m waiting eagerly to get my access rights set so that I can start working on things. I took the new job hoping to experiment a new tool in real time as I think it solves the problems here at the new assignment. I should wait and see how it works for me. I’m excited. Cisco is a big organization, and the environment looks very encouraging. Hopefully I will be able to bring something valuable to the table.
