My blog attained puberty on the eve of 2nd April 2015- the day I was hired.
Until then, my blog knew absolutely zilch about what blogging can take one to. She was startlingly conceived in the womb of blogspot.com as a sole reason to take part in a competition held by Google Web Academy. (I am still frustrated over wasting those nice Android, Youtube, Google etc. stickers on my obese Dell laptop. I mean, I totally missed the great opportunity to flaunt them on my Mac. Ehm. The company's Mac.)
Today, she will give space to opinions and lessons learnt from people I meet. Today she loses her virginity, of being so full of herself.
A week and a few days earlier, four of us from office (read: a random bunch of girls who were transitioning from being acquaintances to being friends) decided it was high time we had a good vacation. We came across an interesting IRCTC tourism package which clearly was bang for our buck.
The OOTY-MUDUMALAI trip unfolded in the course of few days. At the end of the trip, I was high on stories and had an orgasmic urge to blog than to tweet.

I have three topics at hand:
- What I learnt about traveling with aquaintances, first-mover advantage and the domino effect of decision-making.
- Open letter to people taking unsolicited selfies and what it means to feel sexually harassed.
- One man wolf-pack at Tea Factory nailing engineering, marketing, and sales at one shot.
Over the past 14 months, I've had to deal with a number of words. If you think of it, everything comes down to a 'name', an 'emotion', a 'place', a 'thing' that's got an identity through a word. I'm a kleptomaniac for words. I write down everything I find interesting, mostly sentence structures, new idioms and unlike most lazy kleptomaniacs, I give a spin to them.
Do I use these borrowed and distilled words for personal blogs or do I use it for the company's blogs? Or, do I use it everywhere till it becomes a part of my identity?
While I constantly battle with these thoughts, keep reading this space. Upcoming post on topic 3: One man wolf-pack at Tea Factory nailing engineering, marketing, and sales at one shot.
