8 Things on my Wish List:

  • Time to relax and chill out
  • Meet up with old friends scattered across the globe and just catch up in person (instead of just Facebook and chat)
  • Take yoga classes and become super-flexible

  • da (again a Tam-specific slang)
  • cool
  • Too much
  • Actually (which I am really, really trying to curb :()
  • Simply superb

8 Things I Have Learned From My Past:

  • You cannot change anybody’s bad habits or behaviors, it has to come from within them. Stop trying and getting frustrated
  • Not being a topper at school does not mean you cannot be a topper outside it
  • Not to be too trusting and naive about people. Have an open mind but don’t open your heart to others fully until you are sure about yourself and them
  • Being around negative people can be very draining, be kind to yourself, avoid people who enjoy making you feel bad about yourself
  • Some things about your life cannot be changed, they must be endured gracefully
  • Health and peace of mind are the 2 most important things. Everything comes later
  • Holding petty grievances is tiring and affects you badly. Forget about things, move on…
  • You are changing all the time. What once worked for you may not be good for you any longer. Recognize that fact and keep evolving

8 Places I Would Love to Go or See or Visit:

  • France (Paris and the south of France)
  • Italy
  • Himalayas (I have never been north of New Delhi, and I am just dying to go)
  • Eastern states of India
  • New York
  • Maldives
  • South Africa
  • Brazil

8 Things I Currently Need or Want:

  • A new hair-do
  • A great party (I”m still not satisfied after last month’s shenanigans)
  • A relaxing massage
  • Some alone time
  • Nice shoes
  • A faster computer, which does not hang when I open 2 Firefox tabs
  • More healthy dining options in the food court near my place
  • More fun in my life!

Whew! that was tiring. I really had to stop and think for some of these…

I am not tagging anybody specific for this one. If you like this meme, feel free to use it on your own blog, and link back to me. I would love to read your answers.

    Oh, how I love True Blood. I am an Eric fan. I still have to read the books though. TBR has not been shrinking at all. I also really want to go to France and Italy.

    I also received a blog award today and I am passing it on to you. You can pick your award up here.

      I know. I am so addicted. I am almost scared to read the books though. I so fear they may not match up to the series.

      And thanks for the award again ๐Ÿ™‚
