It is a euphoric feeling when you get your first salary in hand. The financial independence comes with a lot of freedom and lot of lessons. The first lesson is how not overspend and to learn financial planning. I remember when I had gotten a job during the last semester of my engineering, my mom had started to educate me on financial literacy. Whew! It felt like I had entered an adult world.

So, if you have read my blogging goals for the current year, you would already know that professional blogging has made my life pretty complicated!! I have lost the focus on blogging by becoming a full time blogger. The focus had shifted to making the blog self-sustainable. And, reading a whole lot about it became just too much for me!It was like being bombarded by do this and do that and this would not work and that would not work. You know internet is a pretty negative place if you really do … [Read more...] about Its Just Life Vol. 4 – Let us Uncomplicate!
So, this was a roller coaster year! It has been quite an eventful year after a very long dull phase in the life and it had started at good note. So, here are a few countdowns on what I did and learned this year! Some random jottings.I traveled a lot - Guwahati, Kharagpur, Jim Corbett, Singapore, Podgatlapalli (which is a village in AP, even I can not pronounce it).I got married. Well, obviously!I wrote a short story which was well-received to whomsoever I passed it :)I was more positive and … [Read more...] about Just Gossip Vol. 25 – The Year 2013!
Or, may be they do. Only we are too short-sighted to understand the play of universe!! Well, ok, I am going to be a little morbid on the second last day of the year. For tomorrow, I am reserving a personal post - the highs and lows of this year!! But, before that I wanted to talk about an unfortunate event that took place in my friend's life!!Well, few months back, I think I did talk about my friend's fear of the baby's heart not being audible! The same friend had to undergo a C-section last … [Read more...] about Its Just Life Vol. 3 – Not all things happen for the good!!
How can life be so cruel to me? I have forever thought that being married would be a totally different experience and here I am often forgetting that I am married! When people say your husband, I look at them blankly!! Going to any party or function feels like I have landed back in time when I used to accompany my parents to a place full of unknown people and I was always so awkward! The only difference is now its minus parents. In fact, my married life feels like a live-in with a friend with … [Read more...] about Its Just Life Vol. 2 – One-month already?
Well, as you all know I have been hitched very recently. Its not like I have never really dreamed of what it will be to love or get married but being pragmatic, I do not really believe in the clichéd concept of love at first sight. But, I do like the sound of it :D specially in Yash Chopra movies.Anyways, coming back, I usually keep teasing my fiancé how he should cherish me and appreciate and respect me instead of thinking of dominating me and all blah blah things girls do. Well, I do have to … [Read more...] about Is love supposed to happen in a moment?
So, writing about life is a kind of stress buster for me but it is not something which I can do on a daily basis. I had started my other blog for this sole purpose but unfortunately, I am not able to maintain it so I thought I might as well start a series here! Hope you guys like the diversity and respond to it positively. And, also, please note that I am not very experienced in putting my feelings into words, it can all sound very muddled :DSo, once upon a time in my life, I went to this … [Read more...] about Its Just Life Vol. 1 – Are you really happy?
