'A September Girl's' Birthday

Hey friends, it was my birthday alright ! 
September is my favorite month because of that. It's special to me and my celebration to enjoy my beautiful life on earth. Taking wishes from my family and friends, I set new goals for me.
I left my job in September because I wanted my life's changes before it. Now things are so different. Differently free and full of excitement and hopes. 

Here are some snapshots of the day... :-)

The day was soothing and nice. Lunch at home, Pizza treat with my best buddy, again a pizza treat at home, cake cutting and then I went to my ex-office annual party. They were very warm towards me and I met my lovely friends there. My sister had to go outstation and that was the sad part.
At home, with the yum cake made by my nephew. Photo credit goes to him too.
Dressed for the party.
At home :-)
With the bestest friend :)
A self created thing is a must for my birthday. So here it is... a tote bag! the idea was to have a Eco-frienly gift and the inspiration was a big cormorant's feather.
My close friends from office gifted my this. Isn't wonderful ;)
My dress. Love it. It fits and flows like a dream.
The  !!!! by the best friend ;)
Self-clicked :D my big nose! :P
hmmmm :)

Fingers crossed for my wishes!

Have you noticed... I'm changing my blog design. Work is still in progress ;)

Love all

A stage of life comes to an end ...

The fun part of CSM.. some awesomest memories. Missing it already... Apart from work, the friends, the celebration part, functions, the canteen, tea between gossips, gol-guppa treat downstairs .... so so many things....

 22.11.10: I started blogging from my office desk. It pushed me into blogging and the 1st post was about my initial days.

Now … 

4.09.13: Officially and logically I have quit my day job but emotionally I’m yet to accept a different routine of life. Out of all my life’s stages like school and colleges, my work life is my most favourite and I’m going to miss it a lot. I was into a disciplined routine of life; doing things at a certain fixed time and working within deadlines. I was in the habit of a earning and spending mode. And the best part was FRIENDS. Some very near and dear ones with whom the otherwise boring work place was FUN! I’m gonna miss the time a lot. ..

To be continued ...

Fun at Office!

If you're following me, you'd know that I'm leaving my job soon for some good. Resignation and Knowledge Transferring tasks are going on AND meanwhile I'm serving my notice period here, we had some AWESOME fun at office.

An add-on to the things I'd miss and always remember of my Office. :-)

Indian Independence Day was celebrated with a theme of dressing up as per different states of the country. We were given Maharashtra and I was happy to get a distinctive state where the culture and outfits are so prominent, colorful and vibrant.

I must say that I'm never never afraid to wear Indian wear. ;)

Here are few pictures from the day: An Odiya girl turned to Marathi Mulgi ;)

Women dressed in other State's outfits :)

Close friends :) All marathi's

Everyone was in great spirits :)

Hehe... police and dacoit from Chhattisgarh :P with the beautiful ladies 

I like this photo, only I closed my eyes :(

Our room :)  Jai Maharashtra :D

People had put such great efforts to dress up. I really loved the time we spent. :-)
I didn't invest much on what I wore but just got dressed in what I already had. By the way the nose ring i.e. the typical marathi nath I'm wearing has been DIYed. :P

The big decision

It's more than two years and half that I had written my first blog post about joining my 1st ever full fledged job. Heres the post: Life in a Box.

The BIG DECISION is !! I'm leaving my job!

I haven't blogged since ages, but this is something I wanted to share in between before I make a complete come-back. After many temporary, small and voluntary jobs that don't even count much, this is my 1st serious job. A typical desk job that was good for a civilised women and it looked good to yourself and to your family to say others.

The job had given me many sleepless nights and headaches. Anger and frustration. But more than that it has given me a whole new life. A whole new platform for learning, meeting people, knowing my abilities and giving me a self-confidence that I AM something. Ups and Downs are there everywhere but this place, this company, people all are nice and have played an important role in my life. I have gained so much of experience and learning that I have started believing in myself. That I can manage my life and do whatever I want.. From an introvert I have opened up so much.

Leaving a job that tortured you may be an easy decision but here where I actually liked the place, leaving a job was a very very hard decision. But it is for some good in my life. From here I have to move on. To see more of my life and fulfill my desires. I don't want to regret later in life that I could have done this and that. I have to do all those things NOW. I don't wanna wait anymore to fly off, to catch some butterflies, to see a new world, to start a business in Photography or Craft!

I want to re-design my life and my home. I wanna sleep on a monday morning and work the whole night. I want to learn new steps to dance on my own tune... hmm... its calling me... My life!

To be very honest I'm hell lot of SCARED. I had got into a habit of earning and spending. Now life's gonna be different. I have to manage life without a constant source of income. I'm taking a big risk for this instability. But I'm praying that all would be fine. :-)

It just has to be :-)

p.S. I had been writing here when my mind wandered off during my office hours. Now I promise to come back soon with a new blog design and ME !

Miss Me :)
Tanuja :-)
