The Month That Was.... May '14


At the risk of sounding clich├ęd, I can’t believe it is June already. I started the #fmsphotoaday but couldn't complete it. And I also wrote so much more than I have in the last six months, all thanks to the April challenge that still has me going. New responsibilities at looming over me at work and I realize now that I have had a cosseted career so far. I bought half a dozen books, went crazy in Blossoms, but guess what, it took me TWO WHOLE MONTHS to finish The Song of Fire and Ice: The Game of Thrones!! Never have I been such a slow reader, I finished Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix in one night and The Deathly Hallows in a day, no kidding :/

I learnt that I’m going nowhere by being honest. I learnt that not keeping my mouth shut about my life in the office can get me into trouble. And I learnt that I should stop ‘speaking for everyone’ for it has made me look like a villain.

OH and I got my first ever white hair :D

Song on my mind: Hulla Re from 2 States. I haven’t yet worked out why the instrumental version gives me goosebumps.

New Food Paradise: Health Food section of Auchan (I’m drinking green tea, FTW!)

Site: StumbleUpon (I know its old news but the things I find over there blow my mind. Every. Single. Day)

Quote: 


In memoriam.
It has helped me find a balance: I trust people implicitly, unnecessarily. And that has backfired on me only a billion times. Not a good thing. Because of which I find myself becoming cynical about everything everyone says. Not a good thing, either.

Plans for June: Just get through the damn month. I have a feeling it is going to be nuts. And maybe post some of the stuff that I wrote last month over here, so that I won’t have a pathetic post count.

How did your May go?

June, how you doin'? ;

  6. I have been a slow reader lately too..and yes too much honesty is not good in office environment..Its always depends on the kind of people you are dealing with..Some people just want to dig some things to gossip about..

    I hope June treats you well :)

  9. I find myself in similar situations sometimes when it comes to speaking my mind and trusting people. It works most of the times, so hang in there.

  12. May? First ever sabbatical from work to study, spent first two weeks of absolute freedom watching Vampire Diaries back to back (do not judge me please, I have been in love with Ian Somerhalder since LOST, and there was nothing else to watch..) . Also pretty much melted off the surface of the earth with crazy temperatures.

    I never finished the first GOT book. I think it had a lot to do with my prejudice against the book, because someone told me it was much "way better" than LOTR and I called them a lot of really bad names and told them never to speak to me again... :P

    1. Major judging would have happened but I have fantasized about Ian too much for me to get away with the judging :P

      Ouch, look at that, as staunch an LOTR fan as any :D
