Blog Every Day in May Challenge!

Am I out of my mind??

I just completed my A - Z April 2013 Challenge, and I am signing into yet another challenge for May.

Came to know about this first through Paula's blog. I joined into the April challenge, so I could compel myself to write everyday. So thought of going along with the flow in May too. Hope I could finish it.

This challenge is hosted by Jenni at Story of My Life. There's no strict rules and she have got some interesting blog topics too, for every day.

So why not give it a try...???

Friends, Wish me luck!!!!!!!!!!!!  :)

Here are the rules:

1. There really aren't any rules. If you miss a day, you can make it up or skip it. The blog police will not come knocking.

2. I will be including a linkup option at the bottom of my post each day, so you are welcome to leave your links here for others to peruse, as well. 

3. You can still post other things every day, too. I plan to do normal outfit posts, life posts, around-Austin posts, and sponsor posts just like usual.

4. I'd seriously love you if you also include the "blog every day in May" button (below) either on your sidebar or at the end of your posts, but again, the blog police will not come knocking. My main goal here is to get us all back to the basics of blogging, not to gain a million new readers (though I wouldn't mind that). 

5. Here are the topics. You can be as creative and awesome or as boring and bland as you like with these. Take 'em and run with it. Use creative post titles. Interpret each "prompt" however you like. There's no wrong way to do it. Have fun.

Day 1, Wednesday: The story of your life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph... no one will be counting your words... probably)
Day 2, Thursday: Educate us on something you know alot about or are good at. Take any approach you'd like (serious and educational or funny and sarcastic)
Day 3, Friday: Things that make you uncomfortable
Day 4, Saturday: Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it
Day 5, Sunday: Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don't have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member
Day 6, Monday: If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?
Day 7, Tuesday: The thing(s) you're most afraid of
Day 8, Wednesday: A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all.
Day 9, Thursday: A moment in your day (this can be just a photo or both a photo and words)
Day 10, Friday: Most embarrassing moment (s). Spill. 
Day 11, Saturday: Sell yourself in 10 words or less
Day 12, Sunday: What do you miss? (a person, a thing, a place, a time of your life...)
Day 13, Monday: Issue a public apology. This can be as funny or as serious or as creative as you want it to be.
Day 14, Tuesday: Ten things that make you really happy
Day 15, Wednesday: A Day in the life (include photos from throughout your typical day - this could be "a photo an hour" if you'd like)
Day 16, Thursday: Something difficult about your "lot in life" and how you're working to overcome it
Day 17, Friday: A favorite photo of yourself and why
Day 18, Saturday: Tell a story from your childhood. Dig deep and try to be descriptive about what you remember and how you felt.
Day 19, Sunday: Five of your favorite blogs and what you love about them
Day 20, Monday: Get real. Share something you're struggling with right now.
Day 21, Tuesday: A list of links to your favorite posts in your archives
Day 22, Wednesday: Rant about something. Get up on your soapbox and tell us how you really feel. (a pet peeve, a current event, a controversial topic, something your husband or roommate or neighbor or boss does that really ticks you off)
Day 23, Thursday: Things you've learned that school won't teach you
Day 24, Friday: Your top 3 worst traits
Day 25, Saturday: Something someone told you about yourself that you'll never forget (good or bad)
Day 26, Sunday: Something you read online. Leave a link and discuss, if you'd like.
Day 27, Monday: A letter to your readers
Day 28, Tuesday: Only pictures
Day 29, Wednesday: Five songs or pieces of music that speak to you or bring back memories. Use Grooveshark or YouTube to include them in the post
Day 30, Thursday: React to this term: Letting Go
Day 31, Friday: A vivid memory

Z for ... ...

Month of April!
26 Alphabets!
26 Days!
1500+ participants!

And, today is the last day of the A - Z Challenge of this year!


“...it's like this. Sometimes, when you've a very long street ahead of you, you think how terribly long it is and feel sure you'll never get it swept. And then you start to hurry. You work faster and faster and every time you look up there seems to be just as much left to sweep as before, and you try even harder, and you panic, and in the end you're out of breath and have to stop--and still the street stretches away in front of you. That's not the way to do it.

You must never think of the whole street at once, understand? You must only concentrate on the next step, the next breath, the next stroke of the broom, and the next, and the next. Nothing else.

That way you enjoy your work, which is important, because then you make a good job of it. And that's how it ought to be.

And all at once, before you know it, you find you've swept the whole street clean, bit by bit. what's more, you aren't out of breath. "

This is exactly how I felt during this month of April, 2013. And I am glad At Last this challenge is coming to end, and I finally completed this. 

P.S. I wanted to come up with something new or at-least a obscure word as KK suggested, but I couldn't find a good, fun weird word and didn't want to churn myself into writing anything fresh out of mind.
Guess, towards the end I became lazy! :D

Y for ... ...

Yup! Almost there!

Last day of last month I stumbled upon A-Z April 2013 Challenge. And it took me till the last hour to sign up. I did that cos I was so irregular in posting in my blog. And now here I am on my Y post. Wow ….Wow I am proud of myself. All throughout the month, the only thing that crossed my mind was… A for…. H for… Y for…..!!!! I guess my lil brother will more relieved to see the end of this challenge than I am.

All bloggers are writers, or who aspire to be one. And blogging world is one space where we would write anything and everything and still receive tons of good words. All this April, we struggled and strangled ourselves to write a post every day. There were so much of unique post from every nook and corner. Words of wisdom, naughty innocent acts of little kids through their mommies, poems that make me wish that I didn't have a gray eye for poems, hilarious incidents, and travelogues and breathe taking shots.

Met so many new people from, in and around India and also from different parts of the world. Each and every person feels connected to you in one way or the other. Learned so much of new things, read so much, saw the world through different eyes and from different angles, learned to appreciate and accept appreciation and criticisms with an open heart.

Virtual friends never seemed to be this beautiful. Cheers to all fellow bloggers who did A-Z Challenge.

It was a pleasure meeting and to have a sneak preview into your lives.

You all are just beautiful in your own ways and writings! :)

Just wanna Thank You each and every awesome people I met during this challenge.

P.S. Keep Smiling.

God Bless.

X for ...

Wow! On my 24th alphabet. Only two more to go.

24th letter , So


Xenobombulate: Malingering (Exaggerate or feign illness in order to escape duty or work.) 

Searched heaven and earth to get a word in X. Thought of writing about X-mas, Xtreme, Xtra and blah blah .... but wanted to write about a X word. But what… Xenobombulate!

My brother used to fake chest pains during his 7th grade almost every day. And finally when we took him to the doctor and examined, he admitted that he was faking it to escape school. 

Everyone has said at least one Xenobombulation lie in their life time. Those sudden stomach ach or chest pain we felt in the early hours of dawn during school days, or the sore throat and fake kich kich coughs during test days, and the looks we gave to our moms with a "Please Mom, No school, pleadings. Those were some days! But I never faked illness to escape school. I just used to cry at the top of my voice, saying that I don't want to go. But my mom being very smart, never allowed me to take even a single day off from school. 

And you know what; I compensated all those during my college days. I went to class, when I felt like. And if I was not in the mood to hear those boring lectures or didn't complete my lab records, then its half day off for me. Because in our schedule, morning was dedicated to lectures and afternoon for labs and promptly I'll be there for my lab hours!

When I started work, there also Xenobombulations came in handy. Just need to call my boss and say, “M’am,(cough, cough) I am not feeling well, so can I take the day off??”… But with a coarse voice… and there she grants permission with full of concern and otherwise never shown love. But next day also should remember to be a bit less active or else she might smell something fishy!

God! What all should be done to survive in this world??!!

P.S. So dear ones, have you ever Xenobombulated?

God Bless.

Why like this?
Why you have to be here when you very much wanted to fly out?
Why you had to fall in love even when you never intended to do so?
Why you had to hate someone close to your heart?
Why smile when you want to cry out loud?
Why have to move on when you want yo stay there forever?
Why everything happens the way I wish it didn't?

V for ... ...

"Value of a Woman"

Women have strengths that amaze men.

They bear hardships and they carry burdens,

but they hold happiness, love and joy.

They smile when they want to scream.

They sing when they want to cry.

They cry when they are happy

and laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in.

They stand up to injustice.

They don’t take “no” for an answer

when they believe there is a better solution.

They go without so their family can have.

They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

They love unconditionally.

They cry when their children excel

and cheer when their friends get awards.

They are happy when they hear about

a birth or a wedding.

Their hearts break when a friend dies.

They grieve at the loss of a family member,

yet they are strong when they

think there is no strength left.

They know that a hug and a kiss

can heal a broken heart.

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

They’ll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you

to show how much they care about you.

The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.

They bring joy, hope and love.

They have the compassion and ideas.

They give moral support to their

family and friends.

Women have vital things to say

and everything to give.

U for ... ...

"Unsaid Words".

Hey Sister dear of mine,

How are you? I know you are good in your ways, but how I wish I would hear you saying so, at least once.

I miss you. I missed you right from the beginning. Missed the elder sister with whom you share your first of everything. Your worst fears, worries, biggest secrets, love and life itself. Even if I have been the younger one, circumstances never allowed being that. No complaints in that, as I got enough and more of pampering’s.

There was a time I wished I could share with you the same sisterhood bond every sisters did. Time when I wished to have a sister to sister talk, when I didn't know what to do next, how to move forward, and didn't know whom to ask. To know whether I am doing everything the way it is supposed to be. 

Time when I wished we could argue, point out each other's frailties, mistakes, and bad judgment, flash the insecurities we've had since childhood, and then come back together. Moments when I wished to become an aunt through you, to spoil your kids and act out as their second mom. But God obviously, always have other plans.

But I never ever regretted for all these. Because, being who you are, made me what I am today to an extent.  You taught me everything that I really needed to know. So I am happy for that. So no matter what, I will be always there for you. I know I could be rude at times, I am sorry for that. But I wanna tell you that I love you explicitly. Nothing would ever make any difference to that. Love you. :) 


"Sisters, as you know, also have a unique relationship. This is the person who has known you your entire life, who should love you and stand by you no matter what, and yet it's your sister who knows exactly where to drive the knife to hurt you the most.” ― Lisa See

P.S.  A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.

"Transition in Relations".

" It's sad when people u know become people u knew. When you walk right past someone like they were never a big part of your life. How you used to able to talk for hours and how now you can barely even look at them."


She talked to them for hours and the topic starts from their thoughts and wander around the universe. But still they never got tired of each other. 24*7 they were together in person, conference calls or video chats. They were like some inseparable siblings. And they were soo damn proud of their relations, infact everyone around them was.


Separated by distance and in hearts too. Don’t know wants happening in each others’ life. Priorities changed, relations changed. Misunderstandings and egos overtook intimacy. Once soulmates became acquaintances.

S for ... ...

Third week of the A to Z April 2013 Challenge! And today is S day


She first met me as a little girl. She saw me grow up into a woman. Saw the childish stubbornness in me. Have seen me in smiles, tears, stress, insecure, love and fear. Who knows me in n out. She have seen me in it's original version... without any makeup, without any masks. The rawness in me and the polished self too. Have read my soul. Saw the genuine emotions in me at it's extreme and purest form available. Laughed along with me and shared my happiness with a smile on her eyes. Lifted me up when I was sinking. Held me tight in her arms when I needed a comfort. Protected me under her wings until I wad ready to face the world. Stood by my side viewing all my crankiness and craziness without criticizing or judging and understanding that I needed all those. Provided me darkness and space to invade deep into darkness and pushed me into sunlight when I searched for a glow.

If she was a living soul, she would have been like another soul who shared my body. Would have been my best friend. Would have been more precious to me than anyone else. 

She's the safest place in this earth for me. Where I could be myself.

P.S. She's, My Room :D

R for ... ...

R for "Ramblings"

Life is not always easy. And it is not definitely like the fairy tales we read in childhood. Fairy tales were full of magic,  goodness and forever. But isn't a bit of fairy tale seen in life too? There are magical moments, evil and good, smiles and tears, love and hatred.

Something that can be never planned is your vacation period in this world. You doesn't know when to start nor end. You chart your days as you wish but obviously it is messed up. We dream to reach somewhere, but numerous obstacles that we might have to tackle may drown the spirit in us. And when we look around,  we might see that everyone has advanced and we are so far behind that it takes immense strength, power and boldness to out-cross all of them or at-least to reach them. But the fear of failure and the anger of rejection might have poisoned our limbs and weaken them from further advancing.

But you are you. And nothing can change that.  Stand up and begin from the start.  Nothing can cure your fear expect yourself.

Coz... when you reach your dying years, there shouldn't be 'that' word in your mind which might break you down even before dying............. IF!

"Silencing the brain's ramblings gives the chances for wonderful thoughts to bloom."

P.S. A note to self.

Q for ... ...

Again I am late. I know, I know...

So, this is my Q post...!!!!

Quality Time!

When you think life is going exactly the way you want, it just takes a sudden turn and everything topples down. That’s how amazing life is. Life is never easy nor boring. It's a roller coaster ride with God being the driver, and we alone the passengers with some co-passengers who get down at some point or other. Ultimately we begin and end alone.

I have a brother, who’s in his high school, and whose biggest worry is getting up early in the morning and at times exams too. There was a point when I too had the same fears in my system. When I just wanted to get out of school and face the real world. After school there was another bridge before getting to life. College. There, the profession had to be choosed according to the job priorities and not coz of passion. After done with in-numerous internals, semesters, lectures, fests, hang outs, studies, scolding’s, seminars, projects, when was really out in the real so called world, nothing seemed real. Everything was so monotonous that you could almost predict your days. No one really bothers about anyone or even themselves. The ultimate goal is earn as much as possible before the last breath. For that sacrificing doesn't seem to be so hard.

Friends and relations became distant and end up in an occasional visit or call. Distance, busy schedules, work pressures … all these came up as excuses. Even I do the same thing. Being a person who hated monotony in any form, survival in this scenario seems far more difficult than I dreamt.

Does people really live, or is this is the ‘beautiful’ life? Where we get so few hours with family and dear ones? If you have to meet a friend who’s in the same country, have to plan, check the schedules and then finally get to meet. If he/she is in a different country, then the planning and rescheduling have to be done before months with prays that no unexpected work creeps up in the last moment. 

Work is always important, and money is too. Because, if I didn't get my pocket money from dad or earns myself, there’s no means to satisfy my leisure needs, which is an obvious factor for me. But apart from all these worldly love, don’t souls need the warmth and touch of other souls?

You born, you crawl, you walk, you start gaining knowledge from school and then college. You work as hard as you can but you smile too. Then to professional life, where you work much harder than you can away from parents, spouses, children, friends, home and everything dear to you. You earn money get back home to find that your child has already grown up and you missed his growing years. That your friends had drifted away from you, as you never had any time for them. That now you have so less time with your better half, as your days are few. So actually did you earn something or lost everything?

“Stop and make sure that everything you are doing right now is really what makes you happy. You can’t just live for some goal in future and have that be everything… have that be it. Because that is what some people do. They get on this road and there are all these signs saying, ‘This way. That way.’ But what if you get there, you get exactly what you wanted, like some people do, except all the things were wrong, are still wrong. Then what?” – Party of Five.

P for ... ...

P is for "Perfect Guy for Me".

According to Indian society the right age for marriage for girls is before 25. And if a girl choose to remain a bachelorette till 28 or 29 then she'll have to face the questions from society like, "Why are you still single? Do you have any problems?, Are you in a relation with anyone?"........... Ufffff.........!!!!!!!!!!!!

And now as I am nearing my 24th Birthday, I am also going through this phase of "right time for marriage". 

So, if ever, someone who in their right mind thinks about spending the rest of their life with me do read on please…. and others too if you wanna know my kind of guy! ;)
Hey Buddy… Welcome to the world of insane mixture of emotions!!!  :)

I am a not so sweet and humble, but stubborn, adamant, arrogant, irritating, virtuous, independent, lovable n a caring female. I am not gonna change and if m forced to tune to your ways m gonna hate u for that, but if I choose to change myself for you, then obviously you’re truly awesome! So deal with me as I am. :)

I should love the way you talks. I don’t know what it means… but I have an instant likeness to people who talk really well. That doesn’t mean you have to be a talkative.  But..... Aaaah…….. I don’t know to explain.

I am in love with Shah Rukh Khan(Indian movie actor) ever since I have seen him acting. So you better love him and allow me to drool over him whenever he’s on screen. And be prepared to watch his movies over and over.

Isn't he such a cute guy???!!

Talking about movies, I love the English romantic drama P.S. I Love you. And whenever I feel like having a good cry, then, that’s what I do.

I love food, but that also depends upon my mood swings. I can go without food when m lazy ;), so what m asking is, Do u know how to Cook? ;)

Do you ride a bike?? If not, learn!

Chocolates.  If you get me one choc, once in two days then m happy.

Flowers. Once in a while it won’t hurt to turn up with a single flower.

I love roaming around. Be ready dude.

Long drive. I LOVEEEEE esp. at night. Be prepared to drag out of bed @ the middle of the night for a long drive and an ice cream. ;)

Beach.  My 1st love. You should take me there whenever I demand, irrespective of the time, schedules, job, tiredness or whatever.  :)

Movies. I prefer theaters than home screen.

If you have a problem with my friends-list either in person or in FB, with majority of the close ones being guys…. Learn to deal with it. Coz I dun intend to get them out my life just coz you came along. And actually they have been with me longer than you. And they are really good and at times may switch to your side to bitch about me. Happy??

Your female friends!! Ok. No issues if I like them. Or else…. We need to discuss about that.

I don’t love you. I don’t miss you. I hate you. … These phrases from my mouth have the exact opposite meaning and if I say I love u or I miss u, i really do that to the extreme.

I am not someone who gets jealous that fast, but once I feel that emotion, watch out!

If ‘m possessive about you, then, you mean to me more than I admit. 
If you are a cricket/sports fan who could leave everything for a match… sorry dear… it’s not gonna work.

“Males are superior to females” attitude??  Keep it deep within yourself. It won’t be entertained a bit.

I love books. And I need time to indulge myself into reading.   

If you think i would all the chores while you enjoy sitting simply, Never!! I am a strong believer of gender equality.                                               
At times m moody, and then give me my space. Or else u’ll just have the worst time.

I am a good listener, you can talk to me anything. And I don’t understand hints; do tell me exactly what’s there in your mind.

I can be a good friend :) and a better enemy. :P

Once in a while a morning coffee is appreciated like heaven. :D

If you have any problem with me, tell me and deal with it. We’ll argue, fight, shout and solve it. But don’t you dare to give me a silent treatment, I hate it! 

I don't wanna change my surname to yours once you tied the knot, But i don't mind having two surnames. ;)

Mmmmh..... Anyways done for the moment. But the list goes on n on. So when can we meet to discuss further?
I'm telling you, me and all my friends do feel sorry about you... but i assure, You really are Lucky! ;)

Happy living with me. :)

Ok. On a serious note, ‘m generally good person and a peace lover, so don’t worry much. We are gonna have a Blastful life! ;)

P.S. God blez you Sweetheart! :)
