New Job,new place

Yes, after six months of being a house wife/job seeker/H4 visa holder, I found a job and got my work visa done. Only down side, I will be moving away from home :-(

I am excited/worried/happy and sad. I am not sure how to describe this feeling. I used to feel the same way each time I left for hostel from home when I was in college. I have found a new roommate there, who sounded very nice and fun. So, that is a kind of relief . Now, life is getting hectic all of a sudden. Planning for the things to be packed,documents to be carried and lots of shopping done. I am not even half way done:( Still, I am here reading blogs and wanted to write because I will not be able to do so for a while.

I hope everything goes smoothly and I adjust well to the new place. Once I am settled there, I plan to write a very long post on H4 to H1b process which I hope will help all the housewives on H4 who are also looking for H1b

Its only words...

I know it is hard for you
I know it is painful to accept
But honey, do you believe me when I say
I love you with all my heart?

I know I don't deserve you
I know I have strayed
But honey, do you believe me when I say
I have changed from my past?

I know this is not easy
I know this will leave a scar
But honey, do you believe me when I say
I will give it my all?

I know you wanted it different
I know you are trying to cope
But honey, do you believe me when I say
I am yours for life?

I know we will be together
I know we will make it through
But honey, do you believe me when I say
I can be trusted with you by my side?

Steve jobs's speech which still Inspires me

I am not much in to Gadgets/technology, but I have a soft corner for Apple items. Their innovation /design and maintaining the standard of products always inspires me . I guess it gets these values from the founder Steve Jobs.

Whenever I feel low, I listen to this inspiring speech given by Steve Jobs at Stanford university. He sums up his entire life in 3 stories , each one giving us so much food for thought. I have encountered very few people who love doing what they do for living. In life , we compromise ,because following our heart has many hurdles on its way. As Steve job says ,"Only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do'. For us, work means a pay check at the end of the month. I guess that is why people are frustrated with what they do because they are not in love with it.

If you ask me, I am still not sure what is it that I love doing . I am still searching for that one thing for which I would be ready to risk every comfort of life just the way Steve Jobs did when he dropped out of college. " You've got to find what you love, and that is as true for work as it is for your lovers." Now that I found my love in personal life, time to find my love at work.

My Birthday

Something is different this year, I am not excited about my coming birthday the way I usually used to be.

From the day I remember, birthday was always a special day for me. My shopping would start at least 2 weeks in advance and I would have a list of things to do on that day. Most of the times, things would not go according to the plan but still I have not missed the preparation part of it. Beauty parlor appointments/planning treats to friends/guessing what surprises my roommates are planning/Sweets to take to office/waiting for mid night calls , list goes on and on.

This year, I haven't decided on what will I be wearing / where and how will we celebrate it. I guess I am getting older and no more looking forward to celebrating it. But, I do miss that excitement and hope to get it back by Thursday

Will miss Harry Potter

House-elfs,Dementors, Peeves,Snape, Mrs Norris, Dumbeldore ,Ron, Harry I will miss you all . Above all, I will miss Hermione who has been my favorite in Harry Potter series.

I started recently with Harry Potter after resisting it for years . My impression of it being Kids book changed after reading first few pages of Harry Potter and Sorcerer's Stone . From that moment, I was hooked to it .Thanks to my hubby and Rashmi my friend who always wanted me to start reading it.

After 7 novels and 5 dvds, marathon of harry potter ends. I loved the feeling of being in magical world where just pointing the wand and saying "lumos" will light the room or saying Accio and object name will get the object flying to your hand (Considering how forgetful I am about where I keep my things, wish this charm really worked:()

Me and Sudhir had started talking in Harry Potter language. We are still working on inventing parseltongue without much success. How I wish there was unending supply of harry Potter books.

Now my wait starts for the next and the last movie "Deathly hallows" to be released in November. I am eagerly waiting to see the end of Voldemort on big screen. It is fun to watch the movies to see the visual representation of novels but movies lack the detailing and the ability to take you to magical world the way novel does.

I guess it is better to stop talking about Harry Potter else I will also end up writing 7 volumes:) So here is me casting silencing charm.. SILENCIO
