Okay, so i had a very stressful week. Terribly actually. Almost met with accidents 4 times in a row. Got yelled at by my friends, family, got a low down on all my faults etc etc etc. but then i just told myself 'this too shall pass' and it did. Last Sunday, before the horrible week began i assigned a mini project for myself telling myself that am gonna capture each day with a picture.(okay this inspiration comes from http://www.flickaday.com )And now at the end of the week i look back at these pictures and realize, there are certain things that i can still smile about, there are certain things that still made me laugh about. So here it goes. It may not be the best of pictures but it still is the best of my week so far.
21/03/2010 Sunday- The wait that was beautiful
That Sunday i was waiting for 2 hours almost, for my friend and also for my parents. This is where i assigned myself the week project. While sitting idle in the mall i noticed this man calling on people to apply mehendi i sat there, his first customer, he said and lo and behold something that on a normal day i hate i loved it that day. I felt like a brand ambassador because after me there was a bee line of girls waiting to apply it too. See waiting is sometimes beautiful.
22/03/2010 Monday- Terrible no words at all
No i don't have any photo for this day. it was a terrible terrible Monday. I almost met with an accident. Got yelled at by my parents, my tooth ache made me dizzy.
23/03/2010 Tuesday-Metered Life
You would wonder why i clicked a picture of an auto meter. well for starters this kind of meter is not something i see everyday in Mangalore. I was so used to the ancient one that this caught me by surprise and also it showed me the distance i travel to work everyday. I sometimes walk all the way home and wow i realized i walk 4kms every time :P
This was the morning which was extra busy. Apparently, a minister came visiting the city to inspect the ongoing road construction in front of my office. What's special about this picture well, He stooped down to touch the road and check it, he looked at the cement works, he asked a few of us about the hassles we faced and then said within a week the works will resume and the process will speed up. Its a week now and the works are still on pause mode. Irony of the day. His surprise visit was informed to us because my company booked his tickets :P
25/03/2010 Thursday- CAKE!!!!! Tooth Ache :P
And this day was the craziest of all. My good friends birthday and we all planned a surprise. For the first time i got off work early and rushed to the party. The cake was ultimate. DIVINE. I did not care for my tooth ache and hogged the cake :p
26/03/2010 Friday- Chocolatey
Another crazy Friday. Friends phone fell in the rain water drain and we had a big group of passerby's giving us all sorts of tips and suggestions to get it out. well we managed to get the phone out though. In the evening i was craving for something chocolatey even after having been warned by my dentist i went to Delisiaso and had a Snicker sneak Shake... yummmmmmmm
27/03/2010 Saturday- Twittery
Another sad work day. Was just bored to death at work. My order at Bookmark was delayed yet again inspite of the fact that i kept visiting them 5 times. I come home and i find a courier in my name. The t-shirt that i won was finally here.. woohoooo Just too elated with it i could not stop myself from jumping around. Decided to wear it the next day for the Make a Difference Recruitment drive www.makeadiff.in
28/03/2010 Sunday-Made all the difference
Finally the Sunday that made all the difference to me. The Make A Difference Recruitment drive. And yes another very very good friends birthday but she was not in town to celebrate it.
And so the lesson i learnt in this little project, so what if the reason for which i smile has now changed, So what if you did not give me those smiles i usually get i still have hundreds, no thousand of reason to smile. And No, you are still the reason why i smile, its just that i now learned to look beyond you. And am able to see life beyond the rose tinted glasses. Even if my day went hell just cause you yelled at me or did not call me, i still looked beyond it.
And yes this post is dedicated to YOU.
