Unexpected Rendezvous

It's been really long that I haven't been able to blog...Work and loads of work is all that's keeping me Occupied and there's a hell lot to do on Weekends too...Life is at it's slow, steady pace and don't know when will I win that Race...(I don't know which Race am I talking about.)

I am and the life in general is creeping through the slowest phase where nothing but TIME is running by...All my efforts to find a new job have been futile and I am attempting it the second time now...

Amidst all this I happened to meet one of my closest buddies Nishika who came to my Office for her Boyfriend's Interview...It's was Un-EXPECTED...

I had cut all the channels of communication...I am keeping myself aloof and she didn't had my number too..But as the Destiny had it...we had to meet...and to hell with WORK...Finally, I got a chance to leave aside work for a day and GTalk for a DAY...Somehow, I managed to escape my Manager's Eye and spend an ENTIRE Day day with her...It was indeed so much FUN...

After an exciting day I went home and guess what??? After long I had a chance to talk to that someone special...(the Guy I liked)

No matter how tough can life be at times, these small things make a difference and provide that much refreshing break...Nothing in life is expected but if the UnEXpected is like this...What more could you ask for?

Self Appraisal

It's time for Appraisals and promotions in the office and even I am expecting a hike...but this isn't a post about all that...To me appraisal means growing by learning new each day and personal job satisfaction that comes from working both hard and smart... 

Here's an inspiring story sent to me by one of my colleagues...Hope it peps up your Spirit as it does mine...Enjoy!

A little boy went to a telephone booth which was at the cash counter of a  store and dialed a number.
The store-owner observed and listened to the conversation:

Boy                : "Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?
Woman         : (at the other end of the phone line) "I  already have someone to cut my lawn."
Boy                : "Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price than the person who cuts your lawn now."
Woman         : I'm very satisfied with the person who is  presently cutting my lawn.
Boy                : (with more perseverance) "Lady, I'll even sweep the floor  and the stairs of your house for free.
Woman         : No, thank you. 

With a smile on his face, the little  boy replaced the receiver. The store-owner, who was listening to all this,  walked over to the boy.

Store Owner       : "Son... I like  your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a  job."
Boy                      : "No thanks,
Store Owner       :  But you were really pleading for one.
Boy                      : No Sir, I was just  checking my performance at the job I already have. I am the one who is  working for that lady I was talking to!" 
         This is called
        "Self  Appraisal"
