TANSTAAFL

Hello folks, have you heard of the acronym TANSTAAFL? I am sure you have.

It stands for: There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.

All through life and at death too you’ll experience this. Think of the free lunches you’ve received so far and count them as your blessings, there are not too many of those going around! I thank the lovely Novemberschild for having me over to guest post on her wonderful blog. Thanks and stay blessed all of you

TANSTAAFL

 Billy, for you a cupcake

My mom today did bake.

I wish someone would help me,

This math is way beyond me.

Billy, I’ll get the pizza hot,

Just wait a spot.

I wish I could drive my date,

Your car please my mate.

Billy, let me kiss you dear,

I love when you are near.

I wish I had a necklace in agate,

To wear on our next date.

 Billy, I’ll sort your excel sheet,

It’s sure to take a beat.

I wish I could take off today,

On a week long holiday.

Billy, I’ll get your tea dear,

Buttery scones and pear.

I wish I could get a new car,

Mine’s just not at par.

Billy pa, I’ll clean the attic,

Make it go all slick.

I wish I could go on a world trip,

You see if I don’t, I’ll flip.

Billy, sir I’ll tidy your room,

It’s in such a gloom.

I wish I had your new coat,

Old man you’ll soon be on your boat.

Billy, I’ll take you across,

Smoothly shall you pass.

A coin I will take,

For the last journey you’ll ever make.

Habit is what keeps you going

7habits

Different people inculcate different habits in terms of their daily lifestyle. These habits are always unique in their own ways which started like mandatory routine to be followed on part of an individual’s daily lifestyle, making it a unique way of their life. Some habits are different and weird on the part of the spectator when it gets noticed.  However, some people are so well organised that their habits are really appreciable and others tend to copy them.  These habits become a necessity in the life of an individual right from the start of the day till the night’s sleep. In today’s time, while we wake up in the morning with the irritating nose of the alarm bell, we start to follow our own habit as part of the routine. Right after we snooze the alarm for multiple times and when we finally decide to open the eyes, maximum number of people tend to open their cellphone to check for the messages or the social media notifications.  While a notification from a near and dear one always makes us smile or surprises the heart out, ‘no notifications’ on the phone screen makes us worry about the well being of the dear ones.

Being part of today’s generation, I confess, I do have a habit of scrolling through the phone notifications right after I stop the alarm bell.  To be honest, I expect notifications from the person who is very close to my heart, and I am so badly addicted and committed to the person that I wish to start my day with seeing his face in the morning to be the first thing. The same person is always the last one I bid good night in the previous night, still I always hope and expect some notification from his side in my very first look up on the phone.  It is still a rarity but I always wish that whenever I open my eyes, I expect him to be the person on my phone’s notifications asking me, ‘where are you? I am waiting for you here.’

When I am too lazy to get up and need some more minutes to be on my bed, I prefer to go through my phone’s gallery once, to start my day. I have always been a huge photography enthusiast and I love to spend time going through the details of the photos I have clicked in the past.  Further, abundance of photos of the one special person I care the most makes me scroll through the album often and again without bothering about time. This has, in some occasions, made me reach office late (confession).

Good or bad, I must say that we can’t judge people by this kind of habits they inculcate. Everybody has his own unique way to start off his day and each one of them has their individual opinion and reasoning about the habit. Whatever the habit may be, it makes one unique and special on his own terms whether it is a good or a bad habit. To add, I love to see her face as the first thing in the morning and I feel this morning habit of mine is special, so is she for me.

Do feel free to share what you do the very first thing in the morning after the alarm is off.

Day#30 -30 things I like

30

Today I read a post from someone where he had mentioned about 51 things that he is happy about. And I thought what a great idea it is. I have been known to have many dislikes. I will do 30 things because today is 30th November.

  1. I have an amazing best friend.
  2. I like to read a lot.
  3. I have a nice straight hair.
  4. I laugh out really loud.
  5. I find joy in stuff like good food, a beautiful scenery, nice walk, good conversation.
  6. I like all colours.
  7. I am a liberal
  8. I have enthusiasm and passion to do something of value.
  9. I have a nice handwriting.
  10. I can use and understand sarcastic humour.
  11. I am becoming more and more confident in presenting myself to others.
  12. I have a willingness to learn and improve.
  13. I can be kind and non judgmental with people.
  14. I can learn some stuff pretty quickly.
  15. I never give up.
  16. I know that I can improve and I try to.
  17. I really pay attention to someone who is talking to me. This is something I find that a lot of people do not do.
  18. My health is at top priority.
  19. My body has been through hell and back, yet somehow it stays strong. I love my body for that.
  20. I’m thoughtful and old-fashioned
  21. I’m quite fond of my energy. It helps me get things done and makes me feel really confident and determined to get things done.
  22. Being a music lover, having good and soulful taste in music.
  23. Not being into drugs and smoking.
  24. How loving I am (no one wants it at the moment, so I’ll love myself until they do!).
  25. My MASSIVE smile!
  26. My love for tattoos and mehndi
  27. My Blog
  28. My perfectionism (sometimes!)
  29. My obsession with reality shows.
  30. My obsession with things that I find beautiful.

Okay, so that came about and it’s a good list. What say?? I should do more positive lists. Perhaps that will make me more positive and remind me that what the important things in life are.

This Post is written for Day#30 of NaBloPoMo which challenges you to a blog post every single day in November. This is a great opportunity to publish posts daily, meet other bloggers, and try something new.
