I’ve been far and away from blogging for a while. Not that long but, long enough that it seems too long. As I get ready for my exam on Saturday, I’ve been trying to block out everything else, so I can concentrate. As I’ve gathered thus far, this isn’t one of those exams that you can just study for in a few days and hope to pass. Suddenly it seems that my brain is reeling from all the information that’s being crammed into my head. So today, I kind of broke down. I decided not to study much or do much. I guess, everyone needs a break. And I desperately needed one. All I have been doing for the last few days is studying and trying to retain loads of information includng ratios and formulas. Suddenly, I just couldn’t take it anymore. I’ve come to realize that my brain isn’t what it used to be. I think it has more to do with stress and anxiety than anything else. I’m a person who get’s so easily distracted. It doesn’t help that I’m constantly disrupted by work issues. Ah well, it’s a path I’ve chosen and something I have get through….for the better.

It’s been a while since I posted anything. Well, a few days seems like a while. The week has been terribly busy as I started to wrap up things at work in preparation for a 2-week holiday. It’s my first holiday this year… but sadly it’s not a holiday at all. All my time will be spent studying as I gear up to appear for the second level of my exams.

I used to envy people who could work and study and manage life. Now, it seems like I’m one of them. Thank God! I thought I would never get there but, surprisingly I did… I guess it’s as they say “If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything”. Famous words from┬áBack to the Future (oh how I loved those movies).

Anyway, coming back to the point, so it’s going to be two weeks of intense studying and trying to catch up on all the time I missed over the past few months. It’s been a few crazy months at work and studying proved to be harder than I had imagine. I thought since I got the ball rolling last year, it come more easily. But no, that ‘s not always true. But anything worth having is not always easily attainable. So for the next few days, I hit the books hard, keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best!!

Take care all…

A little life among concrete

The picture was taken in Abu Dhabi, UAE. We don’t see a lot of green here. Just a lot of buildings. But there is an attempt to plant more trees. Go green! 

This picture was taken with the iPhone 6 Plus and edited using Adobe Apps. It’s part of my attempt to go back to doing creative stuff. 

Words not spoken

I can’t remember where I watched this… On some show. The guy is really angry, so he writes an email saying all the nasty things he has in mind about everyone. Of course, it was comedy and he hits send so it turns out to be a disaster and he goes about cleaning up his mess. 
But, there’s a lot of truth in that. It’s good to get anger out. Sometimes we’re just angry at the world or just one person. Sometimes life sucks. And the only way to feel better is to let it out. Sometimes talking to a friend is helpful but, more often that not, we don’t want even our friends to hear these angry words. So writing it out is probably the only way. 

I do this a lot…. Mostly in my journal. I keep bitching and nagging about the same thing until it’s finally out of my system. The best part is there’s no one to read it and no one to judge me. Well, until the journal falls into the wrong hands….
