Loved this quote! Reblogged from Quotetastic Friday.

 

Rules….

14 Dec

…. that don’t exist in your world, but they sure as hell exist in mine:

  1. If you don’t know something, Google search is free. Help yourself rather than jumping out of your seat & asking the first person you bump into.
  2. If you are repeatedly asking the same question after every few days, don’t expect me to be polite.
  3. Don’t always try to read between the lines. The white space there is to improve readability not for your pea brain to cook up some conspiracy theory.
  4. Get over yourself. Universe is not centered on you. And it will never be.
  5. I don’t have all the answers/suggestions in the world; I wasn’t born with an encyclopedia nor am I psychology/human behavior expert.
  6. Reminding you about your tasks & responsibilities is NOT my responsibility.
  7. Act your age! If you have forgotten your age, thanks to the illusionary world you live in, pick up your high school certificate or ask your mom.
  8. What I am reading on my computer screen is none of your goddamn business. Don’t poke your nose into everything I do.
  9. If I didn’t pay attention to you while responding to your routine hi/hello/good morning, chances are I never will. Leave me alone.
  10. Appreciation sounds nice only when it comes from the other side & without asking for it, not when you initiate it.
  11. And every “thank you” by your client (read US client) is not an appreciation. Americans are way more polite than we Indians.

Share without expectations

Worth reading. Give without expecting something in return.

Movie Review – Jab Tak Hai Jaan

19 Nov

After reading so many good reviews of Jab Tak Hai Jaan, I decided to watch the movie. I wish I had listened to my friend & had not gone to watch it. I am sure as hell now that they were all paid reviews. 😛 I didn’t feel anything like love in a so called (epic) love story. And someone please tell SRK that he is not “25” anymore. He needs to start acting his age now and start accepting dad/uncle/elder brother roles. In no way Katrina & SRK looked like a couple. SRK looked more like Kat’s elder brother. And someone please explain it to me that how Kat is the leading actress in the movie. Ok, I agree she was there for first hour but after that she appeared for only few scenes like our Hindi saas bahu serials appear between long commercial advertisements, 10 minutes of commercials & 30 secs of the show. The only thing I liked about her character was her dressing style. 🙂

I felt like I was watching the movie in pieces. There was lack of fluidity/continuity and movie was hoping from one segment to the other. Nothing could pull it together. Songs were not helping either.

The only saving grace of the movie was character of Akira, played by Anushka Sharma. She added some fun & laughter to an otherwise dull movie.

Now an interesting thing, in the very initial scenes, Akira(Anushka Sharma) was drowning in the water and Samar Anand (SRK) rescues her and almost 2 hours in the movie & you will find Akira boasting that she is a state level champion swimmer & a deep sea diver. 😐 Ironic.

I would not recommend anyone to waste their money on this movie. Better wait for TV premier.

My Rating: 2 star + additional half star for Anushka Singh

Weird phase

19 Oct

I am turning into some kind of a snob these days. Almost every other thing irritates me, I find most of the people idiot & dumb (ya ya, I know I am no Sheldon: P). Sometime I get so furious that I feel like smashing things.

Then later when I cool off & retrospect, I feel that all my irritation was unnecessary. I have no control over how people behave & think. And it shouldn’t be any of my business. But it affects me. It shouldn’t. I should laugh it off and ignore.

I was never a snob, neither I want to act like one. I need to control my reaction to things & situation I have no control over. Or simply shut my emotional side for everyone & everything. Both are not easy & the second option is a bit extreme. I can’t be indifferent to everything & every one; at least not to the people I care.

God please help me to get through this weird phase.

Just some random quotes I read somewhere..

29 Sep

“I don’t want to lose you.’ His voice almost a whisper. Seeing his haggard expression, she took his hand and squeezed it, then reluctantly let it go. She could feel the tears again, and she fought them back. ‘But you don’t want to keep me, either, do you?’ To that, he had no response.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Rescue

 

“Even after all this time the Sun never says to the Earth, ‘You owe me.’ Look what happens with a love like that, It lights the whole sky.” ― Hāfez ح

Resolution 2012

11 Jan

Resolutions!! So finally I could gather the courage to pen them down for the year 2012. I think the toughest part about the resolutions is agreeing to accept that you have certain resolutions. Atleast, for me it was. 😛 Because once I list them down, my subconscious mind will constantly remind me about them. It’s not that I am running away from hard work or efforts, I think it’s just this initial block only that I was running away from.

So, here I am, listing down all my resolutions, with deadlines(coz vague resolutions and one without due dates are weak to begin with) –

1. Learn Javaby Dec 2012 ( ya I know it is vague, I will setup weekly schedule. ).

2. Refresh C++by Dec 2012 (weekly schedules to follow soon).

3. Learn SeleniumI am currently learning it and expect to get a good hold on it by March 2012.

4. Did I mention I am looking for a job? 😛 No? Ok so, to get a job. There is no deadline for this, I am giving interviews these days, so lets see when the luck strikes! And btw, if anyone of you can help me at this front by references and all, you are welcome. I am in software testing, but I am also open for an entry level job in development. Drop me a comment. 🙂

5. Read all the unread novels I have till August.

6. Join dance classes. In or after April.

That’s it for now, I will keep adding up or striking them up as they are accomplished.

And happy new year to all of you, may you all have a great year ahead!! 🙂

Cheers,
