Action Replay - February


And so February bids a slow good bye. For some reason, this month was a very emotionally draining month. No, nothing bad happened, just that February has always been a pathetic month for me. My mental stress was at its peak this month and I became cynical about this dreaded month. But I did not give up, I fought hard with all my strength and got past it. Towards the end, the sun rose on this month and things were bright and shiny again. But, I might continue with my cynicism for this month. Its a hell hole.

The highlight of this month was Valentine's day, which clearly was the best one of my life. Cal is such a loving person that I fall in love with him more and more everyday. I woke up late on 14th, as usual, and found my room to be covered with post-its. Each bit had a clue and I had to find all the clues to get to the gift. Sleepy eyed I ran about the house trying to find them. I completed the treasure hunt in flat ten minutes. Yay me! Next, when I reached office I found a box of chocolates and red roses at my desk. Cal had managed to get in touch with a colleague of mine to make this arrangement! Awesome ain't it. Am I lucky or am I lucky?


This month has been extremely boring otherwise. I completed a release last month and was totally free at work this month. Although it gave me ample time to write and read, I missed working. Funnily enough I have never asked for a break from work ever. Not even craved for it. My love for Cal and my work is the same. He understands it too and lets me be. Every time I'm at the precipice of being a workaholic, he brings me back. So when I was idle all month, I was driven to crazy levels of boredom. Seriously, how much of Facebook and browsing can you do for a day? February made me realize the importance of work in my life. And I suddenly thought of those who just come to work, listen to music, do nothing and stay happy; getting paid for no reason. They are perfectly satisfied. I wonder what it is like to be in their shoes? I shudder actually. I've made a promise to myself to never get there. Work is worship, and it shall remain that way.

On one of these boring days I was introduced to P. G. Wodehouse. I realized that I had three of his e-books and began reading them. I was hooked from the first sentence. The language used was lust worthy and the grammar was orgasmic. I cursed myself for not discovering his works earlier. Well, better late than never right. I watched 'Highway' and did not enjoy it as much as I expected to. Well, the concept is amazing but the screenplay was a huge let down. Alia is going to be giving her contemporaries a run for their money. The scene in which she sits on a rock in the middle of a pouring river and cries and laughs at the same time, hats off to her for that. The emotions were right throughout the movie, but the sloppy story line drowns it somewhere. I've never been a fan of Randeep Hooda, more so after 'Bombay Talkies', but he has done a commendable job in this one. However, the USP of the movie remains its music. The lyrics of 'Phataaka Guddi' and Rahman's voice still tickles my soul.


Next month, I'm gonna finish a year of marriage. Yeah, you read that right. After all the anniversaries that Cal and I have spent, we are all set to celebrate our first ever wedding anniversary next month. Our tickets are booked to a place which I have been wanting to visit since a child. As usual, the love of my love is fulfilling it. More on that, next month!

Like I said before, February gave me ample time to write. Which explains why this is the twenty second post in a twenty eight day month. The only days I did not write were weekends! Well, I'm glad somehow it managed to make up for the sucky start it had. And somewhere deep in my heart I'm glad that February is ending. February and July have always been jinxed months for me, since at least the last five years. I don't know why but something always finds its way during the month to ruin my peace. Every single time. 

Am I being cynical here? Or its just a psychological feeling? What do you guys think? Do any of you have your own issues with some months?

  2. Let it go dear! Feb was a jinxed month for me and my guy too. When our marriage got fixed in Feb, we dreaded it like anything thinking that the month might bring something to ruin it. However, all went well and I see it as marriage was the key to break the jinx. So you let it go and everything will fall into place.

    Cal's gift on v day is so romantic that it inspired me with some ideas ;) I will try it out for our one month anniversary!

  3. I don't have any specific months but I feel really really sad in winters and whenever its cold. With time, I have settled myself but the sad feeling pops up somehow. I try to avoid it and I feel okay for a little time but get back the old blue feeling. and omgggg 22 posts! You utilized your time well. You are a lucky person and I hope you always stay the same, happy and lucky. Its a blessing to find someone who genuinely cares about you. Too much internet makes me feel sick. I get dizzy if I use it too much. Also, I can't wait to watch Highway. After so many reviews, I am really eager about it! I hope you get over this sad feeling and feel awesome all over again. :)

  5. I really appreciate your workaholic attitude because honestly, I have hardly seen anyone so much into his or her work. Most of them just whine about how much they hate their job.

    Wow.. he is really a sweetheart! I'm already excited for you two and also for myself because I'm also going to a wonderful place this month. Yay for us!
