I know it has been long since I last wrote, almost about a month but in my defense, there has been a lot happening and is still happening. There have been so many changes in the last 3-4 months that it is getting very difficult for me to cope up with all of it. And I just realized its December already. The year is about to get over and what a year it was. Full of so many ups and downs, so many changes, and so many events.
If you follow me on Instagram, you might already know that I moved out of Hyderabad, prior to which there was a huge declutter process (I will write in detail about it in a later Blog). Thankfully, the change wasn’t very sudden, I got time to pack up at my pace and slowly digest the fact that I am leaving a beautiful city and the amazing people in it behind.
I went to celebrate Diwali with my parents and it was amazing as always but again with a twist. My dad retired and he was home with us all through. It was very exciting to have him around the house all the time with us, felt like he is also on a long vacation like me that will be over soon. But it was easy to see that he felt a void. The routine that he had for decades was now over. No getting up in the morning to go to the office and meet the people you have been working with for years. I am pretty sure it would be difficult for him but I also know that he would have already started making travel plans. All that made me wonder, what would I do when I retire, hell at what age would I want to retire?
With all those thoughts and loads of anxiety, I came to Bangalore. New job, new place, new people, basically new everything. I am currently put up in a Guest House and the struggle of finding a decent home in a beautiful society is ongoing with just 2 more weeks to sort that out. The job so far is pretty slow and easy going, nothing much to do. Timings are super flexible compared to my last one and people are also nicer but somehow I am still not sure about it all. Still not feeling settled in this place and job. Maybe it’s just cause I haven’t moved to a home I can call my own yet or maybe its cause I don’t know this city and I still have Hyderabad hangover.
Whatever it be, I hope things will settle now and there won’t be any more changes anytime soon in my life. I hope I will find my feet and Bangalore would be as good as Hyderabad if not better. I hope there will be a lot of exciting opportunities and I will get to meet some very interesting people. And last but not least, I hope that I will travel, a lot. On the note of hope, let me close this blog right here and you guys let me know how are you doing. Also, drop in some movie/ tv series suggestions cause I am getting bored AF!
See ya soon!
