Random thoughts of nervous soul

Cos ... today is my last working day at my firm and I don't like changes ... I have no idea how I am going to fare from tomorrow in a totally new place with lots of new people and new kinda work. What if no body talks to me :( :( *sniff sniff*
I have a colleague of mine who is now a neighbor and I sometimes do catch him crossing the courtyard to work. From Wednesday if I see him, I am surely going to think about my last place. From my living room window, I can see the bus that used to ferry me to and from my office. Whenever I catch a glimpse of it, I am going to have mixed emotions.
I know in the bigger picture of things all this is going to melt away. Soon I will get on with my new work place, maybe get someone to talk to :) 

I was asked to join immediately post completion of my current role. Which means the big 'break' I was fantasizing about is never going to happen. I anyways have taken a couple of days off to get some shopping done, sort out my wardrobe, get the fridge pa…

What has been up

In fact a lot. Things have been moving at a slow and steady pace but there have been so many things, that I feel like a silt bearing river. Ready to dump everything :)
My work place moved to a different location. I had spent close to 2 years in the building (as had lots of colleagues). It was a very central location with shopping places and restaurants close by. It was a quaint little building too, with nothing funky or state of the art. But I liked the place a lot. Most importantly, it was walking distance from our home which gave me the daily dose of cardio on the way to and from work. Well... now with the move, I ended up taking a bus. Gone were the days of inhaling fresh air while listening to music at deafening volume and having the most relaxing 'me' time at the beginning of the day. I had to take a bus and seeing a lot of strange faces on my way to work. Don't get me wrong, I don't have a problem with people. People don't work too well for me. Again I think t…

The unlikely pilgrimage of Harold Fry

Thankfully I have finished the book and have some content for my post. Not that I did not have anything to write about . There were too many balls in the air and juggling them was getting a bit tough. I had so many thoughts to pen down but then laziness and lack of clarity held me back. 
Anyways now with the book review I intend to get my momentum  back. 
The book as the title suggests is about the journey of Harold . The synopsis states' When Harold Fry leaves home one morning to post a letter, with his wife hoovering upstairs, he has no idea rage he is about to walk from one end of the country to the other. He has no hiking boots or map, let alone a compass, waterproof or mobile phone . All he knows is he must keep walking . To save someone else's life '. 
In a nutshell it was just the kind of book I love. Of surmounting all odds and achieving.  It is the tale of the journey of an old man who has not got much to show as remarkable. It is the tale of the journey of someone w…
