Money Vs Career

Money Vs Career...the debate isn't new...but something that's faced by most of us...Specially for the one's in the service sector...This is a question that came to me from one of my friends who is in a dilemma and couldn't decide as to what the next step should be...So, I thought putting it as a FACEBOOK status and on my blog could earn me some valuable inputs my fella bloggers.

Story of My Friend:

The girl is one of my school friend and got into working into a corporate. She has a job that pays kinda Well (as per her) and my friend holds a position (a little above than Entry Level). But, sticking to same place for four years and doing the same kinda work (same stuff everyday...which even makes me wonder...why four years at same place?), she has finally decided to leave the JOB

After a lot of discussion (and convincing her) my friend has finally decided to switch to a new place. And after months (more than 8) of searching she has grabbed herself a job into another domain, where the money is a little less (dan what's she gets now) but the future prospects are bright (Personally I feel money will follow sooner or later)...

Talking to a lot of people (indirectly) as in war between 'Money' and 'Career', got me mixed responses...while a lot want to take the shortcut of making 'fast money' mantra...there are some others (like ME) who say who cares about career (and the path is too long)...Let's Focus on MONEY...

So, here the question for all of my BlOgO buddies as to: 'What would you choose between the two?'

Unexpected Rendezvous

It's been really long that I haven't been able to blog...Work and loads of work is all that's keeping me Occupied and there's a hell lot to do on Weekends too...Life is at it's slow, steady pace and don't know when will I win that Race...(I don't know which Race am I talking about.)

I am and the life in general is creeping through the slowest phase where nothing but TIME is running by...All my efforts to find a new job have been futile and I am attempting it the second time now...

Amidst all this I happened to meet one of my closest buddies Nishika who came to my Office for her Boyfriend's Interview...It's was Un-EXPECTED...

I had cut all the channels of communication...I am keeping myself aloof and she didn't had my number too..But as the Destiny had it...we had to meet...and to hell with WORK...Finally, I got a chance to leave aside work for a day and GTalk for a DAY...Somehow, I managed to escape my Manager's Eye and spend an ENTIRE Day day with her...It was indeed so much FUN...

After an exciting day I went home and guess what??? After long I had a chance to talk to that someone special...(the Guy I liked)

No matter how tough can life be at times, these small things make a difference and provide that much refreshing break...Nothing in life is expected but if the UnEXpected is like this...What more could you ask for?

Self Appraisal

It's time for Appraisals and promotions in the office and even I am expecting a hike...but this isn't a post about all that...To me appraisal means growing by learning new each day and personal job satisfaction that comes from working both hard and smart... 

Here's an inspiring story sent to me by one of my colleagues...Hope it peps up your Spirit as it does mine...Enjoy!

A little boy went to a telephone booth which was at the cash counter of a  store and dialed a number.
The store-owner observed and listened to the conversation:

Boy                : "Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?
Woman         : (at the other end of the phone line) "I  already have someone to cut my lawn."
Boy                : "Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price than the person who cuts your lawn now."
Woman         : I'm very satisfied with the person who is  presently cutting my lawn.
Boy                : (with more perseverance) "Lady, I'll even sweep the floor  and the stairs of your house for free.
Woman         : No, thank you. 

With a smile on his face, the little  boy replaced the receiver. The store-owner, who was listening to all this,  walked over to the boy.

Store Owner       : "Son... I like  your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a  job."
Boy                      : "No thanks,
Store Owner       :  But you were really pleading for one.
Boy                      : No Sir, I was just  checking my performance at the job I already have. I am the one who is  working for that lady I was talking to!" 
         This is called
        "Self  Appraisal"

This Silence...

This silence..
It's so hard to break

Ah! And, I have to put everything on stake...

I wish I could ever Open my Heart..

And let you know...

Why did you go AWAY...
Oh Please, NO!

Every time we talk

It's like an eternal walk

I Really Really want the time to stop!

And, the IRONY of it

When you were close, I never uttered a bit.

I have so much to tell and so much to say
And, I always wanted you to stay

The moment you say Yes Dear,

Don't know what I Fear.

And, shattered and scared, I wonder, this SILENCE...
It's so hard to break!

P.S. Thanks for all your love on the first attempt...here's the second...:)


There was a time back in 2009....when weekends were REAL fun....When I had time to hang-out, chill, relax, watch TV, eat Momos, at times do the 'HOMEWORK'...Damn My life is Cursed...

Oh No! No! This is not just another RANTING Post...

I just want to shout-out-loud and vent it...so I may feel a bit RELIEVED! So, talking about Weekend...How was your’s BTW?

Must have been fun....But, I had a REAL Bad Weekend...

I have been looking for a job change since quite a bit now....but nothing’s working out...So, I decided why no t try some like freelance to have a knowledge of how people in other industry work (since most of the employers desire a talented, multi-tasking, variegated, super intelligent employee who knows it all...phew! Don't know what these employers want out)...And, everyone out there is ready to give advises....you're doing so well in your present job...you shouldn't change....you're on the right track lady....if I am doing so well why don't you HIRE...Never thought changing JOB is Not that easy...

And, to top it all...I have to deal with so many other things...the WORST being my increasing WEIGHT...which I am not being able to balance because of running short of time...Weekdays are already PACKED! And, since I am running for job mostly on Saturdays....Sundays are either spent relaxing or working on small assignments...for “EXPOSURE”...

Life at times is really hard to deal with? So, much pressure...My MOM can't take all this (seeing her daughter striving and getting nothing). ..and is so worried at times that she tell me give up my job and take up something like TEACHING that's less tiresome....Gives me more time to take care of myself....But, I can't make her understand that it's a part of life...I know I will get the right OPPORTUNITY...There's a positive side to everything that's so difficult for me to explain and she thinks I am ARGUING...

I just Pray to GOD that I really get a JOB that day or will have to make a COMPROMISE of my life...(which I really don't want to)....

I am Waiting For...

I am Waiting For...

The Spring to come again...
The birds to sing Again...

I am Waiting...
To hear and be heard...
To Love and to be loved...

The day I saw you...
You took me by...
The Reason, can’t explain why...

I wish I could ever tell you and scream...
It's only YOU about whom I Dream...

I wish you could Understand...
That I want to be with you till the END...
And, standing at the Doorway Sad and Alone...
I want you to be Back home...

And, yes it’s you I am WAITING For

...My first attempt, even if you find it kiddish or funny...you're are most welcome to criticize

Why Always me???

It's often that I write cribbing about the past...But Not Anymore...I have made a "
NEW beginning"....And entered the new phase which is Me Being Independent in Life...I am being more responsible than ever, getting stronger and have realized that I am strong enough to make a living alone...In fact, now I feel...I don't need anyone in Life...(enjoying my SIngleton to the MAX)...With each experience I am learning not to Trust Others easily...so, after long...Here's are few updates...

#UPDATE 1 - Office Party

Office parties can be real boring if you're ALone (Irony)...but, until u know how to some have fun...

Ever imagined dancing in a party alone???? Drinking and feeling as if you're are flying??? Entering other people gang on dance floor and your boss pulling you back??? Slipping in the pub and not knowing who helped you in getting up???? And worst, you puking in the washroom and your colleagues trying to FIND you??? (I have a Cell-Phone though)

Well, the recent Office Party was like this... I really had some good time at PARTY and later my colleagues had a good time laughing at me...lolz...Don't know why it's always me???

#UPDATE 2 - Where I discovered a Jerk

I wanna trash HIM really HARD...Don't understand why people take me for granted...I am BINDAS doesn't mean I am AVAILABLE...Yesterday, something happened that I never imagined in wildest of my fantasies...How could he?? I was shocked seeing someone I Respected behaving like that...I kept on asking you might be kidding and he kept on denying...and proving himself to be a real JERK...A Real PERVY...I respected him for his maturity...but not ANYMORE.... I feel so Sorry for that disturbed (DESPERATE) SOUL...knocking the Wrong Door...And have a WORD of ADVICE for HIM:

Better go to a WHORE House....asking or I would say BEGGING to be "Physically Intimate" and spoiling FRIENDSHIPS....STAY AWAY...BASTARD....

Don't understand "Why it's Always me?"
