To do or not to do..

Since past a lot of weekends, I’ve been home alone.. Friday nights bring me to an empty apartment that lacks basic necessities like drinking water, vegetables, grocery, et all. So I drive myself back to the market, shop, call for the water can and prepare the place for a comfortable weekend.

However, past week has seen me toying with the idea of living on my own. I mean, one has roommates to talk to, to go out with, to share but as am my own virtually on all of the above mentioned issues, the idea of being alone has been growing on me. I’ve never done that before inspite of being out for almost 9 years and I have a zillion ifs and buts, a lot of inhibitions but the thought has pre-occupied my mind tremendously. I even spoke to Mom and Dad about it and surprisingly they were alright with it. Dad even went ahead and said that I should begin to look for a studio apartment kind of arrangement in a posh locality and then he and Mom would come down to settle me in. So if all goes well, I should be out by winter beginning.

Another thought I got on my mind is a tattoo. I’ve wanted a shooting star on my ankle for ages now and after seeing Ani’s, I’ve been dying to get one. It’s a matter of preparing myself to bear all that pain and finding the appropriate person to do it that’s stopping me. Again, amazingly enough Mummy is cool with it (and I am shocked with her reaction!!).

Next comes this contemplation of putting up a picture of myself on the blog. The picture does not show much of me, just a shadow kind of thing but going so public on the blog, when I’ve never even used the names of people I know, let alone myself, seems awkward..

Am hoping I’ll come to a decision on all of the above issues, how soon is a question I need to answer for myself

some tattoos always bring me to crossroads, it would be a day worth noting the day i get one...

burf said...

how would a shooting star look like? do you have a jpeg or something?

and tattoo, wow, nice, i do hope you decide to put that pic up atleast! :)

Shruti said...

woww.. a tattoo!!! Lucky u your mom's cool about it.. my mom gets into philosophical mode whenever I tell her I need one :( I wonder what's the philosophy behind it though!

And hey.. u've been tagged with the love link! :)

Renie said...

Hi Sam, this is Renie from IndiBlogger.in. I saw your comment about a Delhi blogger meet - want to take this forward? How about July 6th?! :)

J said...

You are making just the right choices mon cherie :P

Do fill me in on the tattoo bit.

And yes, do put a pic of gorgeous sam on the blog.. public ka demand

Sam said...

Burf, Hmm..lets see when I get mine done too. Regarding the shooting star, I have something in mind but will have to discuss it with a tottoo artist before I finalise it..

Busy Writer, Lols, I know, am kinda inspired by you but am nowhere as pretty as you are so worried that people just might stop dropping by my space for the fear of seeing my picture!! :P
The tattoo is a distant possibilty for now..

Shruti, Thats what, I too was shocked when my Mom was soo cool with it but probably she know me too well.. she knows the idea will go stale with me after a while!! ;)

Renie, Hey, thanks for the proposal but I doubt I'll be up for it.. I am supposed to travel around the same time but keep me posted nontheless..

J, Lols, thanks for backing me up on the house thingy!! :)
The idea of that tatoo is getting a little stale though I did a bit of research on it yesterday..
And am gathering courage to go ahead with the picture thing, lets see, though you've agin boosted my morale.. :D

Red Ginger said...

hi sam! if the thought of a permanent tattoo is bothering u, then y dont u try a temporary one ? it lasts for a few weeks..n u can recolour it..
try it!..
n u can alwayz post a smartly taken picture.. thoda thoda chhupao, thoda thoda dikhao types !! :D go ahead girl !

ani said...

all 3 are big decisions.. take ALL your time over it! :) (but u know sometimes whe you stop thinkin about it.. u just wake up and u know!) :)

wacko said...

ahem, a shooting star on the ankle..i know a blogger friend of mine "shooting star" aka sushmita from delhi who has got shooting star tattooed all over her body..if you want, i can help you(withuot pain) :P

and your pic, i wanna see you :|
i somehow have this weird intuition that you look like preity zinta :P

are you on orkut btw?

Sam said...

Red ginger, You mirrored my sentiments on both the issues, will get a temperory tattoo done and if I really really like it, then go for the real thing..
The pic..got something similar in mind but, lets see!! :)

Ani, this is the bestest piece of advice I've got from somebody in a long time.. thanks sweetie!! :D

Wacko, You know, am rolling with laughter after reading your comment, literally!! :DD
Shooting star..hmm..lets see when I get fixated towards getting it and when I do, I know whom to come for advise...
And dude, I look NOWHERE like Preity Zinta :P, and I don't think I'd want to either, she's too plastic for me.. but keep up with the intutions for a little while longer!! ;)

ani said...

~ takes a bow! hugs sweets! :) (PS - what do u look like?!!) :D :D

wacko said...

ahem, plastic eh? makes me think of you resembling kareena kapoor then..(omg, size zero) :P.

I somehow cant stop contemplating about you looking like some actress :P :P

Sam said...

Ani, :D !! I look, like any other average looking girl.. ;)

Wacko, Now since people are curious about how I look (certainly not like Priety Zinta, Kareena Kapoor or any other actress), I'll have fun out of it and refrain from putting up that picture.. ;) (I now am being cursed big time!! :P)

zombey_-/\-_ said...

whoa dude!!

Jyoti said...

Sam said...

Bubbles, I know most of us here have wanted a tottoo but couldn't bring ourselves to go through it.. Now makes me ask myself if its just a whim or something more!! Yeh, I too believe that all happens for good..
