OCD


Its official - I've decided that I suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder !!
It is something that I've been noticing in myself lately. Everything around me has to be spotless, organized and clean.

Today we had guests over for dinner, and I was constantly cleaning up after people. To see my sofa cushions strewn across the carpet, or spilled "daal" on the table is well....disturbing.
I totally freaked out when a kid wiped his hands with the table cover. I was irritated with his mom for her constant ineffective "nahi beta..", said with a stupid smile and indulgent expression !!!

I am still in a "pissed-off" state of mind.This reaction is not normal hubby says.
Sigh...whoever said life was easy :((

The Notebook

I finished reading Nicholas Spark’s ‘The Notebook’.
I read it’s sequel,’The wedding’ first and then came to this book. I had my first encounter with this author with his ‘Message in a bottle’. Many of his novels have been made into movies. By this, I remember a quote I came across in a bookmark that I got in Crossword once, ‘Never judge a book by it’s picture’. Nicholas has a way of twisting endings, which leaves the reader feeling a void, achingly touched, poignant and yet wanting more. As the wax melted so did my heart. Middle of the night I was crying buckets. 
Decided not to read love stories for sometime now.

AAARRGH !

I have decided that I do not possess something called concentration. Had lots of work to do, but spent the day sitting at my laptop downloading songs for god knows how many hours, and felt like I'm married to that damned machine or something !

I had a panic attack when after a cable fault it shut itself down and I reacted as if it had suffered a hemorrhage !

I think I'm becoming dysfunctional slowly but surely. These are definite signs !

Exhausted !

Tired of entertaining guests and making senseless insignificant small talk. Sometimes one just needs silence, solitude, and space.

Bodyguard

Saw the movie Bodyguard. I'm left wondering how and why people liked it and what made it a blockbuster ?? A shitty movie, not even worth a pirated CD ! should be watched while channel surfing. Personally, I'd prefer watching the commercials.

Anais Nin

“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”
― Anaïs Nin

Amused

Sometimes you get appreciated for making unnecessary changes to irrelevant things :-)

Life Away From Home

Living away from home in a different culture, looking after yourself and making your own decisions…. Helps you explore your limitations. You learn how far you are capable of pushing and how far is far enough. I suppose it helps a person grow and develop a wider and perhaps a different perspective to life and the world.

I have come to dislike the word "Sorry". A very strong dislike, I must add !
