Life as we know it!

My last post was on the 15th of June…so here I am 3 months later! Quite a long break for a blogger and an even longer break for me on a personal front coz there is soooo much happening! I remember some time back, I used to complain that nothing at all is happening in my monotonous life and all of a sudden so much seems to be happening and that too so quickly!!

Yes so………wait for it..…………… ‘I am getting married in 23 days!!’

And yes, I am myself as genuinely surprised as you wud be while reading that! And secondly……………….wait for it again…………..

New girl is moving back to her old city!!!’ Its almost as if I am coming to a full circle with this blog…which I started when I(New girl) moved from my old city to my new city !
Now you know why I named this post ‘Life as we know it’….coz tats exactly wat life is- unpredictable, surprising, intriguing and shell shocking!

I personally dont know most of you…but that doesn’t matter, does it? Would it be too much to ask you to keep this New girl in your prayers?!

Love and more love…always!

514 days!!

No!! Tats NOT a name of any new upcoming movie!

So ya basically i started this blog to track my life changes since i moved to the new city for my new job (which made me new girl!Duh!!)…and sumwhere down the line this blog sought off forgot this sole purpose and became about everything else πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ No!! I m not complaining…i love sharing my senseless poems, pics, quotes,my views etc etc here but the truth is i have completed 514 days today in this new city and in my new job!!!Yay!!…(i think its tym to change my blogname to ‘oldgirlinoldcity’ πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) And No!! I didnt manually calculate that…yup, there is an app for everything these days! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

But hey…which also makes this blog of mine 514 days old!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

My journey here so far has been full of ups and downs…and frankly speaking there is a lot of Kochi i haven’t yet seen…! I will definitely try to travel more within the city…mostly these days its just work on weekdays and i go home on weekends (native place).Life is just going on..on and on…😊

Once again a big shout out to my loyal followers here (esp those that have followed me from the very start!)…Thank u n love all the interactions!…😘 Like this dialog i heared in the movie Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna- 

Ajnabiyon ki baat sunn leni chahiye … kabhi kabhi ajnabi apno se zyada jaante hain!

Last Day of the year

There you arrive again, 
And once again I am left thinking the past!
How you passed away…sometimes quiet othertimes not,
A lot we expected…a lot unexpected happened,
A lot we assumed…a lot unpredictable occured,
New friends we made….few old hearts we broke,
Few of those dear passed away leaving a void,
But nonetheless no regrets,
All said n done…its tym to adieu u goodbye..
New hopes, new wishes, new year! 
Wishing u love, luck and joy,
-Not so New girl!

New girl goes back to old city!

Yup…so to celebrate my first year anniversary of moving to new city (Read Kochi) i decided to take a 1 week break and visit my old city (Read Pune)!!

Yup and ofcourse the ever famous word ‘nostalgia’ hit me the moment i landed in Pune…the chilly weather as opposed to Kochi, the killing traffic, the wada pav-bhel stalls, the thought of meeting my bestie…etc etc… all of it hit me and how…

So attaching some pics taken mostly idhar udhar -(most of it is just food,food and more food)

Tadaaa..n tats 1 yr for the New gal in her New city!

Yep…the first anniversary of this blog is soon approaching πŸ˜ƒPhew! One whole yr since I moved to Kochi…for my New job n started this blog as I became New girl in this New city!

I wud like to thank my 60+ followers…for following my blog n liking my posts n sending ur comments 😊 A lot of ppl dont actually know wat this blog is all about…so ya…a small recap…

I started this blog the day I moved to this beautiful city of Kochi for my new job. Previously I was in Maharashtra which is where i did most of my schooling too.So basically although i m a hard core Mallu at heart…i was entirely new to Kochi. I had heard loads about this city before i stepped foot on it.It is the cultural capital of Kerala n indeed very pretty,lively city with a lot of vibrant young ppl n atmosphere.i cant say i have fallen in love vit this city n my new life…coz tat wud b a lie.But i am learning n experiencing new stuff which will each turn into a cherished memory.i have tried to make as many frnds as possible.Have visited most of the important landmarks in the city.Plus what i really like here is the people…they involve n connect vit u emotionally…be it my colleagues or managers or frnds…i think i hav a personal equation vit everyone i know here.So this blog was started to track my life here as time progresses….

Careerwise i think i m progressing coz i m learning new interesting stuff these days.Personal life is the same n no major changes in it…i m kind of still coming out of the shell here..so i am really grateful to my frnds here who hav intentionally or unintentionally helped me.

And before i leave i wud like to share the below one of my fav posts tat i came across online-

New Girl is no longer new!

Yep tats right…its been almost a yr (10 months precisely) since new girl moved to this new city for her new job.

The funniest thing is I still feel very very new here 😁! The good thing is that my work is gud n my colleagues are genuinely nice 😊.The sad thing is that i still miss my old city n my besties πŸ™. The great thing is that unlike the last 5 yrs or so of my life, i get to meet my parents weekly 😊 and the troubling thing is that all they hav to talk about when they see me is ‘when are u gona get married?’πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‘

And the best thing is that unlike all my earlier blog attempts i havent deleted or deactivated this blog πŸ˜€πŸ˜‚ (although i agree i havent been very active here)

But i shall make amends and i will not give up! 😊

back!

Its been exactly 3 months and a fortnight since I moved here bag and baggage!
Ppl ask me- hows the new place, hows the new job and how are the new frnds??..
The thing is…….none of it has sunk in yet, i think i am in a state of denial!
it never happens to me…i am a person who accepts new challenges and like to permanently settle down with sumthing, atleast for a long duration- be it a job change, a place change or watever- yet this tym sumhow it feels very very temporary..hence the state of denial..
Maybe its the state of my mind…maybe its what i really want…to not make this permanent..but to make it temporary..then again i dont know why i wud want that..
its not like i have some plan in mind….but i strongly feel sumthing is coming…mayb gud or mayb bad…

ok i am beginning to sound crazy! Β Tata!
