Appended: "Part 0: If you were to look at your life from outside...... What advice would you give yourself.."
Just thought I should more light on the intent and context of this question... "If you were to look at your life from outside...... What advice would you give yourself.."
The intent is that if someone doesn't know me completely i.e. he/she has a 5 minute (/10 minute/few weeks) discussion with me - how will he/she perceive me as a person? what will he/she advice me?
Also, the second perspective, if I was an acquaintance (/colleague/ boss/ peon/ subordinate etc) of myself, what advice would I give to myself..?
just for an example "Oh! she is sincere, but I wish she was more driven", "she is nice but gets moody"
Now, this might or might not match with my understanding of myself... but yet it might be true. And in cases where I would think that its not true, it will give me an opportunity to see why an outsider will perceive otherwise....
Then there can be so many other perspectives too... what if I was a book-writer...? I might say "Well, your life was exciting till point A, but you lost control after point B"
if I was my door plant "You take a lot of care of me, but its sporadic....

1. Dear A, you should be monitor yourself for traces of pride and arrogance. While pride is good to an extent, if it goes unchecked it might turn into "arrogance"
A speaks: Am I arrogant?
Frankly, I am not really sure; most probably you are a borderline case.
PS: 'A' is me :)
I intended to post this few weeks back...
Its a question for myself, and I think it is one of the questions I would like to ask myself every now and then...
Without wasting any more time or words on introduction, I would bring up the question directly:
"Part 0: If you were to look at your life from outside...... What advice would you give yourself.."

The thing that I have always missed is having a big gang. Really, its so much fun to have a big gang, people whom you can party with, freak around with. I always had few close friends, but I have always wished to have a BIG ENTHU GANG (not that I not treasure my close buddies!). I have had big gangs for smaller intervals but not for extended periods of time.
The naysayers frustrate me. "Ready for a movie" "No", "Lets meet up this week", "Oh!" and so on... Naysayers are neutralised in a big gang...
I am a party thingy and I need a gang.... and this is inspite of the fact that I am getting married this november! I NEED A GANG to freak out with.
I know what you would be saying Krishna! Here comes another demand/ wish from her....!

There was a time when I used to write my diary. Infact I started writing when I was 7 or 8 year old! and was more or less consistent. I left it during the last few years during my Bachelors. When I moved to Bangalore for my masters, I started writing again... That was the first time I wrote about love... and then things happened. I destroyed that beautiful piece of my life... It was both good and bad in a way. Good because it really really helped me get over with stuff (remember the scene in Jab-we-met where Kareena asks Shahid to tear off the girl's snap and flush it off!). Bad because somewhere I lost a part of me...
Well, now I am wondering should I start writing again? Hmm.... good question....
