Yep.. It’s been a long time since I’ve posted .. Lately most of the posts that I write don’t make it to the “Publish” button.. This is one of those lucky ones that made it ..
Anyway , it is New Year’s Eve which means it is ……”DEAR DIARY time” .. Today I picked up my Diary and my glitter pens (That’s for colour coding if you must know ) .. But then I noticed the strangest thing ..The diary was only half the size it used to be.. wait.. before you want to know the reason , let me tell you something about me and new year resolutions .. Every year I make one big resolution and many tiny resolutions.. The big resolution is always the same .. That is to stop biting my nails .. But I break my resolution faster than Kim Kardashian filing for divorce yep ..Over the years I’ve come up with a number of strategies to make it work…Last year I set the record for bite-free nails for 2 weeks ! So this year I bought a couple of nail polish so that I don’t have the heart to “bite” the pretty colours.. I guess I was hoodwinked by the lighting of the shop that I bought the ugliest colours for a nail polish : pale green and Ujala blue ..
I called them “funky” colours .. Uh ..little did I know that my nails would look like they are growing algae .. For the first two hours after putting them on I didn’t want to looks at my fingers at all… But I didn’t want to remove them either .. So I was having this little battle in my mind… But guess what ? MISSION ACCOMPLISHED ! I didn’t want to take my fingers any where near my mouth …… So where was I ? the diary.. yeah .. I always write my resolutions neatly in a diary .. Halfway or even quarter way through the year if I don’t abide by them ,I tear the paper and write new ones.. That is the story of my shrunken diary ..
Here’s the moral of the story .. Only if you are planning on strictly following your resolutions write them in a diary .. If not they only remind you of how crappy you were the last year .. So raise your glasses , ( in case of chennaiites filter kapis ) to a wonderful year ahead.. Hope you all succeed in all your endeavours …
P.S: Once I made a resolution to stop drinking aerated drinks .. In fact I didn’t take a drop until last year … So there’s the silver lining that I’ve been looking for…
