Gearing Up

Two more days and this year is finally gone. Don’t ask me why but I’m glad we’re done with 2015.

Maya is hosting this year’s January blogathon and I’m signing up for it yet again *Hoot Hoot* . I messed up the NaBloPoMo November challenge and I want to make it up. I’m all set and I’ve given the blog a new look.  😉 I hardly know how to design n stuff, but I’ve managed something decent, if I may so.

In an attempt to thoosi thattify* my blog, i’m going to  try new things.. 😛

The blogathon is open to all and you can find the link here. Join us!

Though I’m not hosting this challenge, I’ve made myself a badge for participating in it. I know, I know, heights of boredom!!  *insert sheepish grin*

The last day

The last day of the first month in this new year.. I will not say I don’t know how the month passed by.. Bcos only me n God would know how much I had to think to write something each day to complete this blogathon.. But yay.. I managed to finish it. Many posted regularly but some lesser mortals like me added two posts in a single day to make up for the missed day. 😁😁 To think I actually did something for the past few days is in itself a great achievement. I once read that when you do something for 21 consecutive days, it tends to become a habit.. I seriously doubt that applies to blogging as well, but let’s see. I got used to typing out the day’s post only by the end of the day and today was no different. 😜 I had lots of fun these 30 days.. Started following new people and almost know everything that’s happening in all those participated’s life. Thank you for all the comments in my posts n for all your wonderful posts that made me laugh, made me think and made me jealous.

Day 30: Second chances

Blog about the three things that you have been putting off for the future, which you would do right now if given a chance.

Second chances are like God-given. To right the wrong.. To undo the past.. A chance to turn your if-only’s to I did it! If offered a second chance in life, I would definitely ask to go back to the past, to not grow up and stay with mom. But since I’m given a chance to do something I’m putting off for the future, I cannot list time-travelling 😜
Sigh!!

Something I’ve been putting off:
1) To join baking classes – Even though I suck at cooking, I love to bake. There’s nothing in the world that I would want right now. Not even a free trip to Hawaii. Ok, scratch that, I might wanna go. Such a traitor I am.. 😜 But on a serious note, I’ve been wanting to join some proper classes for baking, but the non-availability of said class that would suit my free time or the distance from the place to my house, makes me wanna cry loud. And, the fee! Of course.
If I were given an chance, say like a two or three week holiday, I would run to my school senior, even sleep in her house and learn all that’s there to bake a cake as beautifully as she does.

2) The trip to Bhutan
– Ever since I saw some super duper pics of Bhutan, I just wanna live go there. I have to save more so I could manage to enjoy an international trip with the husband without blowing up our savings. But if given a chance, say, I won a lottery I could easily go. Along with a paid holiday!!

3) See, the thing with the above two wishes is, either I must be paid a hell lot of money or I should be unemployed to take up classes. So, my long time dream is to open a books-cum-cupcakes shop. I can get both my wishes come true, if this one is made possible. Baking like a pro and don’t-have-to-beg-for-leave situation at work !!
Again, if I had the guts and confidence to face my manager, to talk right in front of his nose, to walk off with pride saying that I quit.. If I could do all of that.. I will open my shop!!
If only!!!!

Day 29: Mageirocophobia

Ok no need to run away on looking at the title, people !! I was randomly checking pictures when I came across this word – means

An intense fear to cook

I think I got this phobia because of too many kitchen disasters. And also my dad. Whenever mom is out of station or had to rush somewhere that she couldn’t cook, Pa comes in. He cooks n never makes me lift a finger 😍😘 He would turn down my offer for help and ask me to watch or leave the kitchen. At least I should have watched him 😞 and learnt something.

But right now, I’m slowly trying to cook succeed sometimes, or make something that’s too bad to eat or manage to pass in the border.
So yesterday I made dal-greens masiyal and it came out pretty good! I couldn’t believe myself, although it’s a very simple dish.. Huh, I’m fighting my demon.. yay to me!!

Day 20: Swag!!!

Ok ok I’m hyperventilating.. Coz how cool your picture can become with this awesome app!!! Pure love I say!! Word swag is a fantastic typography app that lets you add quotes and text layouts.. To all this who already know about it, forgive me, but I just installed it now and can’t get enough of it.. I mean, half the apps in my phone are for photo editing and I just can’t stop falling in love with this one!!!

Dear VSCO Cam and PIXLR express, I will not leave you behind.. My love for you will still continue..

Day 13: Life with a Candy Crush saga Addict

yeah, that game can be so annoyingly addictive at times. But its got its advantages too..

** You can cook anything you want and however bad it tastes, the husband does not mind. Because his left hand is busy crushing candies and who cares about the taste.. This also has the advantage of making the same chutney for days and he wouldnt notice it..

** You can shamelessly bribe him with extra lives in return for washing the dishes. 😛

** You can watch your favorite TV program and there’s no fight for the remote or the boring Test cricket matches.

** You can read your book at peace without him interrupting frequently.

Also while searching for some good memes, found this one from a Pinterest board by ThisHappyMom.

Day 8: Glitter love..

Happiness is..

Adding things to your wishlist and being content that your money is safe for now 😜

Glitter mania
Maybelline color show glitter mania came long back I know. But I had only Starry Night with me which soon dried off coz of careless cousins 😔 . Now my eyes are on Pink Champagne which is absolutely stunning. Next time I go shopping, I’m coming back with this beauty or perhaps all of them 😍
