Hey… Sorry for the long pause… loads has been happening and yet nothing has.
I have been a little stressed, tensed and troubled all week. Nothing major. There are major changes happening at work which may or may not affect me. The old stress of sales is back and I do not like it.
I have seen these organizational changes in my earlier company and they are not good… atleast not for people who want to work their way up on merit.
Even in my dreams I think about work. No kidding. When I am talking to myself (in my mind) it is about work. Don’t ask me why. I don’t have major responsibilities but tend to take un-necessary tension.
Also, there was the mid year review. I spoke my mind. I don’t know how well it was taken but everyone has their own managerial style and with me, each member of the team should know where he stands.
Tomorrow we (KC and me) are off to Mumbai for the weekend. I have a conference on Monday and Tuesday and for once I am looking forward to it. It will be nice meeting my old colleagues.
Coming to the very good part. I joined Jazz dance classes. Jazz is a street form of ballet and focuses more on technique than on movement. I mean, its not like usual latka jhatkas. I did learn a bit of it 3 years back at ‘Danceworkz’ and joined it again. The weekday batches are on Monday and Thursday from 7-8.15 pm… but they begin at 6.30 pm (basic revision of previous class) and go on till 8.45 pm. 1 hour is spent on exercises and technique and rest 45 mins on routine. It is so exhausting. I reach home at 9 pm, take a shower, have dinner and am dead. But it is 4 hours in the week when I am not thinking or worrying. Its a nice feeling and its been a long time since I felt that way…. when I can cut off from everything and focus on one thing. My gym has suffered in the process but thats ok.
Coming to the hilarious part… On Saturday I went to the gym early morning. I was very energised and actually running at a speed above 7… then, my hand towel fell down and I didn’t want to break the rhythm (I just used spell check to write this word… I am ashamed) and decided to bend a little and pick it up. Of course, I lost my balance and fell off the treadmill… for the very first time (I know…I know… nobody even has a first time). The instructor was very, very concerned. He banned me from listening to the ipod ‘coz he thought I lost concentration. What an embarrassment. Now I totally seem like a country bumpkin who cannot even run on a treadmill.
Coming to food, we bought a toaster cum grill cum waffle maker last week. B’fast on Sunday was sandwiches and waffles… yum while lunch was risotto and pizza. The risotto was sort of bland and I will look up better recipes. I didn’t want to add too much cheese. One thing I am grateful about in Gurgaon… all the imported ingredients are available. Arborio rice (used in Risotto) is not there even in Hypercity in Mumbai but I found it here in Spencers.

Good night… catch you next week.
