Life’s surprises!

DSC_0428

Life is always filled with magic’s and surprises as we used to read in fairy tales. Be it a positive or a negative turn, it takes us by surprise on every single turn. Life is relentlessly unpredictable.

There were times when people used to say some things to me like:

“Don’t you even know how to address someone in English? Shame on you being a Josephite”

“What are you reading? Study your academics. These fairy tales wouldn’t feed you in future”

“What are you scribbling all over your notebook? Do you really call them poems huh? What a waste of time. Do something worthy instead”

“Getting education in a convent is not just enough. You must learn to read, write and speak in English fluently. Hope your mother is wasting money on you”

“Hey, what do you know about a computer? Do not touch it. Just watch me work”

“Why the hell are you wasting money over such useless things? Who’s gonna see all these things you do? Just clear the room and don’t dare to spend money over such things again”

“Ahh… Don’t take your Digi cam. It irritates us to see you roll over the road clicking pictures random”

I was not an intelligent student during my school days and let’s say it even now. Being an average student in my academics, I have various other interests from my childhood such as reading, writing, crafting and photographing. But things just don’t go well with a girl growing from a small town where grades are the only identity of an individual during his/her school days. And obviously I was such a loser in boosting my identity among my society. Seeing my mother worried about my so-called identity aspect among the neighbors and relatives, I have to get back onto the track running for grades and on its way I was forced to leave behind my interests and passion.

As I have mentioned earlier, Life is always filled with magic’s and surprises and also life is unpredictable. I do realize it and am actually experiencing it for the past few years. After completing my MBA, I began working as a Content Writer which actually an unexpected career given by my organization with their confidence on my writing skills. That was when I discovered that I still have the ability to write and someone actually like what I write and thus started developing my interest in writing.

Being a Customer Relationship Coordinator as well, I had to speak with clients from domestic and international, which is where I found I don’t actually suck communicating in English.

I was also asked to write hundreds of business E-Mails for the same person who said me not to touch the computer as I was bullied of not knowing even how to switch on the monitor. And now, I have been asked for help with all kind of technological gadgets for them.

Seeing me do some good craft works even made my mother say that am not actually wasting money over those things.

And finally, I am being positively commented for my photographs by the same people and the best part is though am just a beginner in photography, there are people who ask me for suggestions and tips which leaves me bewildered.

As far as I am concerned, I might not be an expert on all the above things, but still am not a dumb-ass just like the others portrayed me on their minds earlier. I may not be successful in choosing a better career that offers me lakhs but still I love what am doing and I would continue learning and developing my interests into an enduring passion.

I simply think, my passion for these things make me feel lively and evident in this planet.

A transition…

Hello people!!!

I have finally joined in my aspiring course MSW (Masters of Social Work). I was having so many ideas running through my mind once I got relieved from my job. But since my childhood I was aspiring to become a social worker and once when I grew up I found MSW as a course which concurs with my long-lasting wish.

As a result of it obviously I went for an admission with MSW course and waiting for the college to get started with a new phase of my life. This is how I was thinking until I joined this course. But in this few days of time I realized few totally diverse thoughts about me and my ideas and guess this was really a transaction phase of my life. The few questions that I asked myself are:

  • What am I really gonna do by learning this course?
  • Am I gonna do social service to the people through this learning process?
  • But why can’t I do it by being in some other work?
  • Is it really necessary to stop working and go in for learning?
  • And by learning this will I be able to serve people better?

I was such a naïve for all these days and even now. I am really not able to take a right decision I guess. But what so ever be the result is I have decided to go on with my studies and once decision is made there must not be any looking back. And the answers for these questions are:

  • I always thought of helping and serving people. But never really had chance to do it nonchalantly. Though I am basically a person who would go for help voluntarily and at times I even put in few extra taken for fulfilling my wishes by going to orphanages and old age homes, I have no clear approach of how to move with people and handle all kind of people by handling my work with service and it directed me to minor time utilization for my obsession of serving. So by joining this course I would not have any work related stress and with some extra time usage I would be able to concentrate on my passion and make myself fit in right along with it.
  • Service basically doesn’t depend on the work or place or time a person is in. But it’s the effort he puts in whole heartedly in serving to his fellow people right from his own family and friends. Though I knew these well, I still wanted to make myself dedicated to my passion than running around for unrealistic money which weighs human beings these days despite of a persons character, love and affection towards each other even though they are our own family.

Being a girl I have limited space to move on in this society but being a human being I have this whole world to wrap it under my love and affection. Thus this is quiet a transition in my life.

Your valuable suggestions are always accepted whole heartedly… 🙂

Wish me luck guys!!!

Milestone of my journey in WordPress!

Hello all…:)

It’s been so great to have time speaking out my thoughts about my blog with you all… As this is my 101st post I take this opportunity in sharing few of my experiences…:) Though you might be busy out there with your own world of joys and sorrows guess I would lend a 15mins of your valuable time in reading this post…:)

So I am a girl of 23, working as a Content Writer (Of course I am, do believe me 😛 ) in an IT concern. While I was doing my graduation I had my personal laptop with net connection. All I could do with it was to search content for my assignments, create various profiles in social networking sites for chit-chatting, mail my buddies and watch movies online. I never knew there could be a better world out there that offers me so much of opportunities in identifying and developing my inborn skills which is kept untouched. 😦

But it was at the end of my graduation I accidently came across a blog which I don’t even remember by now and I found that a guy was penning down his thoughts in such a funny way which I just loved it. I kept it bookmarked and followed him for so many days. But I was such an idiot (even now am so at times 😛 ) for not even taking a chance in browsing over what the blogging platform is and how it works. I must say that am not much interested those days.

But after my graduation I had several mess ups in my personal and professional life and finally landed up with bits and pieces of me into this office which is a haven. I haven’t dreamt of even finding a place to work with such pleasant atmosphere and lots of good people out there with loads of experience helping me out with each of my endeavor holding back with massive patience :D. I know I was a quiver and I don’t understand a thing simple. I need an explanation for each and every little thing which is quiet a good habit according to me as I got to know a number of unknown facts about the work and even the usage of every single software ( though my superiors might have got irritated with me am so thankful to them). 🙂 🙂

After few months of my work with my so-called-perfect-company, I had to write various contents for variety of business profiles which made me surf over the internet once again. While doing so I again came up with so much of blogs which was so amazing and lovely to be with. So during my free hours I started searching for blogs and got addicted in reading blogs. 😀

I am a single girl child and I am yearning badly to share my views and thoughts with someone. And I found that blogging could make me feel better in sharing what I have in my mind. The main reasons behind this thought are:

  • We can blabber whatever we think off in our blog.
  • We need not reveal our identity to everyone so that we have the liberty of penning down our views over anyone and any issue.
  • We can make a good group of friends who can encourage you and cheer you up in improvising your works and think fresh and make yourself busy with building up so many newer ideas.
  • We could develop our vocabulary, grammar, writing skills, our talents in any other genre like art, craft, photography, poetry and anything that you have within you.
  • We need not muse over other people’s thoughts and instead we could make others think about your thoughts and views and create a spark in minds of someone like me to get them developed.

So analyzing and coming for a conclusion about me blogging I created a blog. But to my disappointment I was not able to continue as I do not have time to spend for my blog in my office and at home I had a problem with my net connection. So my first blog cannot be updated regularly and by due course of time I even forgot that I owned a blog. 😦

Finally at the end of September 2011 I thought of creating a new blog in a new name where I had to update often and keep my blog alive without any degradation for my readers. So thus I created atinytoes.wordpress.com in the beginning of august 2011. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Though I do not have a perfect genre for my blog I actually wanted to explore my writing, photographing and crafting skills with everyone. But I do accept that my blog doesn’t have much information’s that is helpful for you all. But I am trying my best to implement new ideas in writing my posts which might create an interest over the readers to spend some time to stay in my blog page.

Here is the status of atinytoes in the WordPress:

  1. From 29th August 2011 my journey in WordPress begun.
  2. I have completed my 100th post on 24th January 2012.
  3. 8,524 friends of mine have visited my blog since August. (Not sure how many of them liked it. But guess none of them hated it. If so do let me know with the reason friends)
  4. Got 38 close friends as my followers. (Though am not a leader to have followers I just mentioned my friends here who that am worth for atleast reading few of my posts)
  5. Have been nominated for 2 Awards. (Not sure whether am entitled for those awards. But am sure that it encourages and motivates me)
  6. A total of 277 comments have been made. (There are people who express their views to improvise my works and even there may be few who encourages me though am not upto the anticipation, but please do remember that all your comments are really worthy for me and I value each and every comment good or bad whatever it may be as it helps me to get me move further)
  7. I follow 56 blog sites. (Each and every site I follow has some uniqueness and I really love the way people express their views either it may be funny, sarcastic or sensational but all that binds up at the end is a fruitful information with such an expressive style)
  8. I created my poem blog on 29th September 2011. (Though am not updating it for a long time I still do believe that I can make that blog also active with my poems.)

When I started writing my blog I never really imagined that I can make up to this type of result within a 6month time period. But when I find this kind of support from my fellow bloggers I am pleased and get motivated to give more useful posts to everyone.

I take this opportunity to Thank you all my friends, visitors and my blogs future visitors for considering me and my blog page for few minutes from your precious time.

Always treasure each and every moment of your life and Keep blogging 🙂 🙂 🙂

With Love,

atinytoes
