I want to be lame and talk about the stupid reasons because of which I stopped blogging. In fact I’m that distant relative who shows up at your doorstep everyday to sit and gossip about others only to evaporate into thin air the rest half of the year for his mysterious family problems which he will never discuss. Was that way too specific? Anyway, I’m happy to return to blogging and there are no reasons I can say that are going to make you feel, “Oh that’s a very logical reason for her disappearance and it makes total sense why she didn’t blog for more than two months.” I mean it sounds good that someone will say that to boost my confidence and my ego but I’m my biggest self-depreciating critic and I say I’m a horrible human for not keeping any of my promises, for the utter lack of a disciplined life and most importantly for always being in denial about the fact that I’m just lazy.
Speaking of lazy, let’s talk about my loving husband, Bigshot who for the past two months have been going through his nerd phase so much so that we have officially crossed the line from being lazy to the anti-social old married couple whose entire purpose of living together is to fight over who passes the T.V remote from the table. Again, way too specific? Don’t get me wrong, we do go out every once in a while but there is always a starting trouble. I guess it all depends on your attitude whether you want to change certain things in your life or stay the same feeling utterly disgusted with yourself.
A few weeks back, I made a huge plan to leave the house for the weekend and as I vigorously walked around the entire living room making the itinerary for the day, a drowsy Bigshot was flipping through the television. As I pushed him into the washroom to take a shower, it all of a sudden hit me. That I’ll need to take a shower and leave the house with him too. In no time I told him the plan is cancelled and pulled him out of the washroom only to have him curl up in the couch like a cat clinging on to my arms who does not bother if the human sitting beside him is confused and delirious.
It is with pleasure, friends, that I would like to tell you that we no longer are lazy or anti-social. How, you ask? We just decided not to be lazy and anti-social. We are going to socialize so much so that people are going to get bored of us. Okay, that’s a lie. We are going to try is what I actually want to say and not sit in the house till algae and seaweed grows around us. Does Bigshot knows about any of my plans? Absolutely not! But like I’ve said before he isn’t the one who takes any interest in making decisions or worrying about the decisions I take for the both of us. Unless and until he is given the sole responsibility of making plans in which case he starts spamming your mailbox with excel sheet after excel sheet about each and every detail. That’s a topic for another day. But today, I’m glad to have started writing again and oh dear lord, how I missed it. It’s like talking your heart out into a void and in return you get the love from so many amazing people. You all have been kind to wait for me to start writing again or enquire each and every time I go through this disappearing phase. Trust me when I say it but it has been equally hard too.
In another three months it’s going to be the start of a new year and like I always annoy you with the “how time is flying” thought, I just want to point out that the entire year felt like it passed through me. Not to forget, I’m turning another year older and I just realized that writing the age isn’t going to make me feel any better so I’m skipping it entirely. With that lovely thought in mind, I’m signing off for the day. I’ve some exciting stories and not so exciting stories from the past two months to write in the blog and I can’t wait to catch up! Until then, have a good day/night everyone 🙂
“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.”

I’m an ordinarily odd person who is pleasant to talk to. When I’m not trying to be funny, I would be lying on the floor bawling my eyes out. I write weird stories, real life snippets, traumatic and dramatic memories along with doses of unsolicited advices. 🙂
