"I ..." Series

There was a time, not so long ago, when I was totally jobless in Office and was desperately looking for some time pass. I have no idea how I reached this space, but the moment I started reading I got hooked to it. This was one of the first links that appeared in my blog. I liked everything about it - the way she presented day to day matters,her attitude towards life,the simplicity of her language,.. There were moments when I could relate, moments where I felt she stole my thoughts and words.. I read and re-read all her posts and became a regular visitor from then on.. With the arrival of her little one, the tone of her blog changed to that of a mama relishing motherhood.. Her chronicles are so real that it's as if Puttachi(that's what the little one is called) is growing in front of our eyes.. Many of her baby posts have made me (rather most of her readers) crave for a baby of our own although she is quick in giving a reality check that life is not all that rosy in the baby-world :) Although I have delurked at times, I was following her blog almost silently and so was pleasantly surprised when she tagged me.. So Shruthi here it is.. I have retained some of the answers which I felt is apt for me also..

-------------------
I am: different, just like everyone else :)
I think: too much
I know: my limitations
I want: a peaceful life
I have: everything that I need
I wish: I could roam around world without bothering about anything
I hate: deception
I miss: my childhood friends and the happy times we had
I fear: being a burden to anyone
I feel: responsible for all my actions
I hear: only what is needed
I smell: jack fruit (it's in the next room)
I crave: for chocolates any time any day
I search: for myself,but don't know where to start ;)
I wonder: why people unnecessarily complicate things
I regret: nothing. (Every step is a learning experience)
I love: to be busy
I ache: for children suffering for no fault of theirs (esp in cases like divorce or unwedded mothers)
I care: about others more than for myself
I am not: the best,but I try to do my best
I believe: in the goodness of people.
I dance: my own dance
I sing: silently
I cry: only if no one is seeing
I don’t always: try hard enough
I fight: for what I believe is right
I write: so badly, still I write !
I win: if there is no one to compete :)
I lose: if I am convinced I am wrong
I never: go against my values
I always: keep my promises
I confuse: faces and names
I listen: sincerely when people are confiding in me.
I can usually be found: engrossed in some craft works
I am scared: of losing my memory
I need: good companionship
I am happy about: the way things are right now

-------------------

And now passing the lantern part: I have been collecting tags for some time now. Some of my friends tagged me so long back that even they would have forgotten about their tags ;) So I'm passing this meme to all of them just for an indication that promises will be kept and your tags will appear in this space,sooner or later.. ;)

The list goes like this

Usha
Sandeep
Jolly Roger
Amey ( I know two are pending from you :( )

I know an open tag is not usually picked up, still I tag everyone else who would like to take up this tag. Go ahead, it's interesting..

Hi Dhanya,

I am trying to include technorati widgets in my blog... how do include those java scripts(widget codes) in your blog template? I tried.. but the widgets appear outside the template above the image, in the corner. Hope to receive some help from you. :)

Regards,
Poornima.

Shruthi said...

So many sweet things about me! I am really touched, Dhanya :)

And very well-done tag.

And hey, what a beautiful template!

Thanks for tagging me, girl..

Dhanya said...

@ Poornima Prabhu : Yeh sure I'm glad to help. Will check your template and let you know.

@ Shruthi : It's all facts :) My friend's baby is just 1 week older than Puttachi and I always ask her- is she is doing this? , is she doing that? n all. My friend keeps wondering how I am so well updated about the little ones developments.. You know the source :)

@ Usha : Yeh "born wanderers"- that's the name :) Unfortunately I've seen very few females in this cadre. Nice to meet one more :)
Looking forward for your tag post :)

Poornima Prabhu said...

Hi Dhanya,

Thanks a lot for the info. I did as you said and now the widget is sitting in the right place. For google analytics, do we need to add the tracking script in the page element? I tried adding the stuff in
Templte HTML and the HTML of every post. The status says, 'Tracking code detected' but the data is never gathered...

Regards,
Poornima.

You seem to be different.
After reading through your posts,I got a curious question.
Why are you staying away from marriage?
Are you waiting for somebody who is yet to be met?
Or you missed somebody and ended up waiting?
Do write about it too

Dhanya said...

@ Anonymous : I am now curious to know who this is :) Please delurk..
And an interesting question as well for which I don't have an answer :) Probably it's that I missed looking for somebody :D

Anonymous said...

I will definitely;)
just one more..Are you still waiting?
