The Blog is all set for 2013, it has a swanky new look, updated Wishlist for 2013, updated About Me section, twitter feed of my personal twitter (yes I can’t believe I am letting go of the anonymity) and a new search button to look for entries on the blog. There is also a new section to sign up for updates! I am in full mood to take this 10 steps ahead of what it was until this year.
I have also decided to use my blog name initials for signing off each entry because it’s confusing, sometimes I use Motormouth, sometimes Drama Queen and sometimes just me. Going forward all entries will be signed off as Miss M.
As I sit in my dimly lit room, sipping good whiskey and watching a good series, I can’t help but think about the past few months. This is how whiskey is different from any another drink – it gives you a sense of subtle euphoria despite the underlying sorrows that you might be living with.
Never mind, sorrows are a chapter I am not willing to discuss. I figured if I can’t stomach sorrows then I must not engage in passive aggressive blogging about it either.
Coming back to the dimly lit room, I painted my room with a fresh coat of yellow paint. It looks pretty and I finally got rid of all the clutter in my room and as I sit here thinking about what tomorrow will look like, all I can see is a new city and fresh chance. It is a bitter sweet feeling.
This is probably the last chance I will get at having a new life in a new city and I must not waste it like all the other chances I got. I have pegged some expectations towards this one and even though having learnt fairly recently that I must not expect from others, I do have some expectations from a new city. A new city will give me a fresh lease of life which is why I am spending the one month that is left into calming myself down and forgiving and forgetting a lot and literally reducing my friend list. No Joke!
I am excited and a bit remorse all at the same time.
Also, a little tipsy I think…:D
Haaaayeee! Kya Film Hai! Har roz kyun nahi release hoti ek nayi Dabangg!
I usually never ever write about movies because I know I will suck at writing any review, however, Dabangg is an exception to that rule and let me tell you that there was no way I was going to sleep today without writing about Dabangg. Please note that I will not be talking about the story or the plot because I hate spoilers so I don’t want to spoil it for anyone reading this post. This post is about what I felt about the movie. Yes I FELT…..
First things first: Salman Khan rocked the movie. I was gasping for breath when he took off his shirt and this has never happened (not his shirtless stunt but my gasping for breath when an actor does something sexy on screen..NEVER) So yes, I could not take my eyes off Chulbul Pandey even for a moment.
The movie is a full blockbuster masala movie and it is not meant for people who go to cinemas to find substance and realism….(Isn’t our life full of drama and realism anyway?) This movies is for people like me who go to cinemas to watch masala and Dabangg 2 promises to be the most masaledaar entertainer you have ever seen since Dabangg 1.
The dialogues, the action, the flow – everything about the movie had Super Hit written on it. There was not even a single dull moment. Rajjo looked ravishing and munni made a guest appearance Arbaaz Khan sure knows how to keep the lucky charms. Kareena Kapoor’s performance was not at par with munni but the lyrics of ‘Fevicol Se’ sure were written by a really chichor man and I loved it. *main toh tandoori murgi hoon yaar, gatka le mujhe alchohol se*
I was just talking to a friend and he asked me why women rave about Chulbul Pandey?
The answer is simple & in bullet points:
He’s sexy and hot is a separate thing all together. It’s this real yet larger than life character that women fall for. We all want a chulbul to love us not a cheddi or a bachha bhaiya!
My Verdict: It does not deserve 5 stars …it deserves 5 Seetis…*Seeti Seeti Seeti Seeti Seeti*
All I have to say is:
Ab zindagi beetegi toh kisi chulbul pandey material ke saath ..varna akele hi sahi! #nocompromise
There are just a couple of days left before another year comes to an end. So much has happened in 2012 that it’ll be a shame if I don’t chronicle it here and I have been meaning to do some posts around it for the longest time now so I decided to take time out today to do a detailed post on 2012.
In the past I have done some shabby posts on resolutions and year recaps and I can easily and shamelessly say that they have been EPIC FAILURES. Here’s the one I did in 2010 and here’s the one I did in 2011.
One thing is clear, like 90% of people who make resolutions, I am no good. (Where did I come up with that figure? My Brain)
Anyway, so here’s the #1 Reason why I decided to do this post.
If you know me, you know how much I hate self help books, self help blogs and all that, however, this blog has been quite a find – The Art of Non-Conformity. If you’ve ever felt like “there must be more” to life, this is for you. I highly recommend it.
This blog is also the reason why I decided to do a personal review of the year 2012. The idea came from this blog where the author has detailed his personal reviews all the way from 2005 up until now. I thought that is a great idea. Much better than making resolutions I will anyway not stick to post January 10. I also do annual reviews at work which btw are a great way to start a professional year because it gives you a sense of background about how the past year went and helps you greatly in setting goals for the next year. I like the idea of doing this for my personal life too.
How is a personal review done?
You ask yourself two questions:
Here are my answers to these questions:
What went well this year?
What did not go well?
So this was my 2012 review and based on this, here are my goals for 2013.
This year I will not set any resolutions and then not stick to them. I will just give this year a theme and I will try to make 2013 an embodiment of the theme I chose. The theme this year is “be fabulous be happier” (#BFBH)
My goals this year are not unambitious and unrealistic ones such as 1. Be Happy 2. Be wise etc.
My goals this year are:
1. Continue to stay out of debt, possibly save for a contingency fund.
2. Explore one new city alone this year.
3. Put aside 5 minutes everyday to slowly work on the anger issues.
That’s it. Three goals and I am done with the resolution business. These goals don’t have to start from January 1st, these goals don’t have to happen immediately – all that needs to be done is to give myself time and space to grow into a person who is in full control of her emotions and her finances 😀 #2013
I’d like to end this post with a song from Duran Duran – An Ordinary World! (Don’t ask me why – I was listening to it as I wrote this post and felt like it had something in it for me to post it along with this EPIC 2012 post)
I have two. Hindi & English!
1. Whenever I am in a weird mood. Not Sad, Not Angry but just deeply Blah…this is my song. And this song has the power to make me a feel better instantly. its like having a conversation with my life.
2. This song is actually one of my all time favorites. I prefer this version and I love Coldplay. I am actually contemplating doing an entire post on coldplay and my favourite CP numbers!
