Look at me going all Australian! Or cow girl-ish or a combo! Thats Mr. Time’s indication that its ‘time i took a break’, a mini-vacation. YES! I need one right now but i’ve hardly completed what i need to complete. This is just the beginning, things have just started to roll, i’ve just begun to put in more effort to give some direction to my career and am already craving for a vacation? Am not escaping my responsibilities, especially ‘coz its concerning me! But that doesn’t stop me from dreaming of a perfect lazy holiday!
Has it already been 4 days since my last post? Now that’s a first! I don’t think i’ve ever been away for longer than 3 days. Maybe once or twice… very rare. Reason #1 is that it has been one helluva week! And it got so frustrating towards the end that i felt like smashing my keyboard to pieces, forget about typing out a post! It has been a crazy week. Crazy in red, bold, capital letters. B.A.N.A.N.A.S! I think i ate my mom’s brain for two whole days straight. And as if that wasn’t enough(it wasn’t really!) i ate a few more brains. Finally full, and happy and content, i decided to blog 🙂 Am so glad the week is finally over. And am hoping next week is more like mangoes(The one and only reason why i miss summer).
Reason #2 was that there was a family function at home, and i was busy with that. Well not exactly ‘busy’. Technically i din’t do anything except ‘attend’ :P. And i was so wrapped up in my own troubles that i dint even bother to plan a dress for the occasion(which has never happened before!). And this reminded me that i need to get an outfit ready for my cousin’s marriage in August. I wanted to shop for it today but i dint. Instead i though i’d finally hit the sales and check them out. Checked. It was bad. Very bad! What is it with all the brands these days? (And non-brands too). Why and when did everything become so damm costly? Two thousand for a simple cotton skirt that hardly comes up to my knees, and with a little bit of thread work?
I can do a much much better job on designing a similar skirt, if only i knew stitching! And it would cost me less that five hundred. I’ve always wanted to design my clothes as a fun hobby, a side project, but this time i might actually take it up seriously. Maybe an year back just the thought of ‘sale’ would have made me go crazy enough to shell out that kind of money. But this time i had a very strict budget and a very clear idea as to what i need to buy. So far its not been working!
I dont have any outfit posts this time. With my mood swinging from north pole to south pole, i dint feel like taking any pictures. In fact i dint want to blog at all until i had something substantial to write. Funny, i usually love my random ramblings but this time i promised myself i wouldn’t ramble away without any cause or topic. And this is me breaking that promise. Or not! There is no topic here, but the cause is that ‘the week’ is finally over and am happy! I guess that justifies it! 🙂
Random pic of what i wore to the function.
Also, am determined to watch a movie this weekend. I don’t remember the last time i stepped into a theater! But then again, because of the Mumbai blasts, security is pretty tight here.. so lets see! Any movie suggestions? My picks are Harry Potter(definitely!) and Zindagi na milegi doobara!
