Months in Rewind- September and October 2015

September September are you already gone? Oh wait it is
November already! Where did October go? First things I feel guilty- guilty for
not writing anything on the blog for a long time. Not a single post in October
which is in complete contrast to last October when I took up the Ultimate Blog
Challenge and ended up writing 31 posts in 31 days. I think I need to take up
such challenges more often because I am not the one give up easily on a
challenge.
Okay so now coming back to the purpose of writing this post-
looking back on the month or in this case the months gone by. September started
with a lot of missing home and that became worse when I fell sick and I missed
Mom’s care when I fell sick. No matter how old you become when you are sick you
miss your mother’s care. I managed to write 5 posts in September and after a long
time one of my posts got selected as one of Blog Adda’s Tangy Tuesday and the
post is really special to me. Read the post here. September also had few holidays and hence some
break from work. Most of the holidays I end up being lazy and spend my time
doing nothing or sometimes the Monica in me makes me clean all the things that
I have managed to stuff in my tiny room. But one of the holidays was special as
it was a girls day out with my friends followed by a sleepover. What a nice day
it was!  One of the days that I look
forward to every month is the day that I will be meeting my bestie! Though we
live in the same city, we live in different corners of the city and work keeps
us from meeting each other more often.
October was about holidays and travel! Yeah you realize the
value of long weekends when you live away from home. So I grabbed every
opportunity available to go home. October also meant lot of shopping as it was
the month of cousin’s wedding! And my cousin’s wedding took me Mangalore and
Kasargod. It was nice to meet all my cousins and relatives after a long time.
It is occasions such as these that give you an opportunity to meet all your
relatives. And guess who was the maid of honour to my cousin for her wedding? I
know you would have guessed it right 😉
But I really feel bad for not writing in October. I know I
shouldn’t be making excuses. But one of the reasons that I couldn’t write were
the frequent power cuts. The load shedding made my life difficult as most of
the times when I would come back tired from work, there would be no power
supply or water in my room! And that would spoil my mood. It also meant no
watching TV shows, no reading. All these days I have been reading Jeffrey
Archer’s “Sons of Fortune” and I must say that I am proceeding at a snail’s
pace.
There are times when I just feel low. But I think all of
those are just passing thoughts. I must write more often and read more. Keeping
my brain occupied with such productive things will definitely help me. I made a
resolution- to write at least a 100 posts this year and if I have to reach that
target, I have to write more often. November has already been a busy month.
Hope it will be a nice month! How was October to you? Do let me know. Have a
nice November!
