Bullet Journal – What is this thing?

 

Well, first of all it is just a journal, but a very very different one. Once you get used to this little thing I am sure you’ll carry it everywhere. Yes, even to the loo.

I got to know about bullet journal through an office colleague and her excitement level practically made me explore this thing more. So, here I conclude that a bullet journal is nothing but simply your Yearly Tracker, wherein you can keep a track of everything you do, from daily tracker to money tracker, you can put everything in there.

This is how my bullet journal’s cover page looks like- so true in every sense. In between I put a lot of self curated quotes- being a poet has its own several benefits. Haha.

You have to put in a lot of efforts to make a simple bullet journal. First, you will need to search for various things and trackers you want to put in there. Then, you will have to compile all these things and decide which comes when. And lastly, give it an artistic touch if you are an artistic sort of person (or if you are a girl. haha). Otherwise, you can just fool some of your innocent artistic friends to decorate your journal for you. I started with a calendar.

Also, you need an index, it is the most important thing. At first you’ll definitely think that you don’t need an index but eventually you’ll put so many things in the journal that it will be hard to memorize what is on what page.

Then comes birthdays and events. I am personally someone who can forget anyone’s birthday so I always check my Facebook the first thing in the morning just to see whose birthday it is.

Daily and Monthly tracker to track all your daily and monthly activities, like the things you would like to do on a daily basis or a particular task that needs to be done.

Shopping and wishlist. Okay, this one is my personal favorite. I like to shop a lot, so I divided my list into shopping and wishlist where shop column would contain things I really, really need, like actually need them and wishlist column would contain things I want and are completely useless and of no use. Hahaha.

Money tracker and Savings Jar are something that keeps me motivated to spend less because I constantly keep noticing that I am in severe debt to the credit card company.

Health tracker is basically for people like me, who can smell junk food from a building meters away. I keep a genuine track of food that I eat whole day long.

For all the book nerds like me, you definitely need a Good Reads page where you can list all the books you read year long. Also, make one brainstorming page where you can write various facts and new words that you come across.

Well well well, this is the most epic thing which I did think of on my own- the Doodle Page. So I am someone who can get really irritated about anything and put myself in a bad mood. So one fine day I decided to distract myself from doing so and made this doodle page. Okay, I know I can doodle good.

Less/ More would be the things you need to do less or more.

There are a lot of other things that you can put in your bullet journal just do your research. And I say just go for it. This is something epic. You’ll know exactly What shit you have been up to for a whole year. I am loving this. Share your journals if you make it and when you make it. Bye-bye.

Oh! The New Fallout- Banks

All my life, at least for the longest of time that I can possibly remember, my sweet-Mommy is after me to prepare for bank jobs.

I remember being in just first year of college and mom nagging me to fill some clerical post bank form. I know it might be hard to believe but I did fill the form, I think I even paid some registration fees. Bought the book for mom’s sake and never showed up to give the exam. Well! Just to clear the doubts I didn’t sneak out on exam day, however, one day I went to my mom and told her I don’t want to do this. She said nothing! I grabbed the opportunity and discussed no further.

After that there were several other moments when my mom let me not-fill-the-form just because she had bigger plans. Fourth year of graduation and I was flooded with questions not only from mommy-darling but every relative I could possibly remember. Seemed like everyone wanted me to be a banker, maybe because then their bank tasks would be queue-less. At least they might have thought so! Haha

I somehow passed this phase and got placed in a very good MNC and currently working at a different place. Okay, I got confused and chose a different option altogether. Anyway.

After demonetization my mom went from “Yo banks to No-Banks”. Although this was a very happy moment for me, however, I felt real bad for all the bankers out there, who worked the hell out just to receive a lot of criticism from the same people they worked for. Like chill guys not every banker is corrupt, you won’t be able to get what little money you have if they were.

This way or that I am still in the favor of demonetization because it made my family declare that in the coming generations nobody will ever do a bank job. Somehow we are actually putting it on the whole universe and I am smiling with all my teeth stuck out (white and shiny by the way). At least I am out of this rat trap.

So here we are once again biding goodbye with me walking out of the trap like a boss. Haha. Take care folks.

You are because She is

Feminism is a long judged topic of our era. I felt very guilty about being a feminist naturally because our society looks towards feminist as the ultimate men-haters. Well! FYI folks I am not really a Men-hater, instead my love for MenKind is eternal, for pretty obvious reasons. I personally don’t really care about the privileges that men get in our patriarchal society; I am certainly more concerned about the privileges other chromosome combinations don’t get.

Yes, I am a feminist, and I don’t go around hitting men or talking foul about them. Okay, sometimes I do that but I am not putting it on the universe. I just want the equal rights and my pocket would definitely appreciate the equal pay scale graph. Just for the fact that the lazy Y-Chromosome failed and pushed its lovely X-chromosome forward that doesn’t mean I will be given a little less of everything; be it respect, rights or salary.

And the biggest hypocrisy is always related to menstruation- Okay, I can’t go to the temple, I can’t enter the kitchen, and I can’t wash my hair and multiple other completely useless beliefs. And all these saintly people giving me this “Gyaan” are actually Secret agents cum God’s Messengers working for the welfare of our so called society. Like what if I go shamelessly ask for Sanitary napkins, it is just like asking for rice. It is a basic necessity so why I should really have to whisper to ask for a whisper. Too literal in every sense!

Another most horrible thing that I have always dreaded is that the woman has to take up the role of the ultimate caregiver. I am the most ill-mannered girl because I would want my would-be-darling to help me with the household chores and stay back to take care of the baby when it comes down to it. I am not saying that men don’t do it, but the majority take their wife for granted and be like you need to do it! It’s your job. Okay dear, I can even bath twice once from your side too, will that be okay?

I actually have a very long list of “I can do it but it is not my freakin’ job to get everything done”. My sister has always been nagged by relatives for the fact that she doesn’t know how to cook and she is okay, and have moved passed all the girly etiquettes running after her career. (I say relatives because my Parents are pretty cool about it. I actually inherited my feminism. Haha) I feel it is okay for her to not cook. What will happen after she gets married?

  1. The husband can also cook
  2. You can always hire a cook

Why is it mandatory for girls to learn all these things? I love cooking but that’s my choice. Nobody ever asked me to cut the vegetables in the most perfect shape and place them in an alien order for the salad. I can cut them in random shapes and just throw them on the plate. My dad would still be very happy to have it since it is rare that we even prepare the salad. It takes too much time; I still can’t peel a carrot perfectly!

I am a very crazy type of person; I guess you guys are already aware of it now. Anyway, a single word can create a pool of thoughts in me. So this blog is practically a trigger of a competition on YourQuote (An App for Writers), wherein we were supposed to write something using the word #Women. See image below

People tell me even today aren’t you too much of a feminist. Yes, I am and I believe in fighting for myself. Let’s just stop being all weird about feminism and accept it, because I don’t want to put this on the universe. Haha. Bye-Bye guys and girls, awaken the feminist in you.

New year is such a Cliché

I guess I am one of those people who doesn’t really believe in New Years. It is just another horrible day, adding up to my list; mostly because of people constantly asking me about my plans. Okay! You guys I had no plans for New Year not because I am a loner but because I think this thing is so overrated. And Also, I was home watching Star Screen Awards. Yes, people like me do exist.

Another most stupid-and-hyped thing would be whatever you are doing on New Year, you’ll keep doing a year long. Oh Please like I was peeing at 12 a.m. but that does not mean that I will spend the rest of my Year on the Potty seat. Well, yes, practically I will spend my Year peeing because that’s a constant demand, which my bladder would make of me.

I was there like Why do I even need to make resolutions? First, I would never stick to them after just one day and secondly, I can make resolutions any time in the year because if it is meant to be accomplished I’ll do it irrespective of the time, date, starting or ending of the year. I agree one of my previous blogs do tell clearly that I had a New Year To-Do list last year, but common guys people change and I have come to believe that New year is such a Cliché.

And then there are people who necessarily need to wish everybody Happy New Year right at 12 A.M. on 1st of January. I just dodged all their plans by switching off my phone at that time in particular. However, any which ways I had to celebrate New Year because of the innumerable mistakes that I will make in writing the correct date for the next couple of days.

I think instead of making a resolution list we all should be making a Mistake-List wherein we would be writing down all the mistakes that we did last year and try to not make them this year; Like I’d really love if I could start exercising before my Doctor has to forcefully push me into a physiotherapist’s clinic for back pain.

Yay! I actually gave myself a brilliant idea while writing this very blog. My Mistake-List would be made very soon. Or rather I’d like to call it the things I would like to avoid in 2017, which will definitely give rise to another blog title- ‘How I stopped Sulking’. I would really like to avoid sulking in 2017.

So finally- Hello 2017, Please be good to me and all the people reading this blog and yes, I don’t want to sneeze you away. Thank you for the Patience. Hahaha bye-bye.
