7. i Am aFraiD oF..

Day 7, Tuesday: The thing(s) you're most afraid of

I am petrified of absolutely anything and everything

I am afraid of the dark! (Don't keep staring into this photo.. Its got nothing in there except DARK!)

I am afraid of what the future might hold.
I am afraid of change.
I am afraid of roller coasters.
I am afraid of hospitals.
I am afraid of dogs and la cucarachas.
I am afraid of ghosts.
I am afraid of losing my loved ones.
I am afraid of lightning and thunder. (You can find me under the cot mostly, when it thunders)
I am afraid of not having a kid call me mommy.
I am afraid of death (or the oblivion of what awaits me after)

I am afraid to think that I still have 24 more posts to go before I complete BEDIM challenge (sigh!)

6. wHat dO I Do?

Day 6, Monday: If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?

Ok Day 6 is NOT good. Anyone who has read this post of mine, will know how much I like being asked this question. For those of you who don't, here's a detail of one typical weekday of my life.

Now, it is surprising how simple things can create a jolt in one's life. (Like today, it nearly jolted my husband just to see me awake at 8:00 am in the morning). Fine! I am not a morning person. ok? I usually wake up around 8:30 - 9 ish (Its not like I have a job to get to or something)
Usually I finish all the morning rituals (includes all the brushing, washing, breakfast, etc) and then make myself a tea (yeah that's right. I am a tea person) at around 10-ish.
With my tea, I switch on my laptop. First thing I check is all the comments from my previous posts followed by reading all the posts of my blogging friends. From 12:00-1, I watch the re-run of Charmed on Channel 11. (I am a witch fan, remember?)

And then I make lunch, eat lunch, check if I have any more blog comments... take a walk in the park, make dinner, check for comments....pack next day's lunch for hus, sketch (if i feel like), check for comments... dance around a little bit, watch a movie, check for comments... eat dinner, do dishes, check for comments... skype friends, blog my BEDIM post, check for more comments..switch off laptop, read book, pray and sleep!

Voila! there you have it! Well, any comments?

Day 5, Sunday: Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don't have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member

I am a neophyte to blogging and I haven't had a chance to know my fellow bloggers as much as I would love to. So I decided to go with a real-life friend. 

Certain people come into your life for a reason. They are with you throughout when you need them.  

You laugh together. You cry together.You do all the crazy things together. 
They have seen you in the worst and don't pass any judgements. They make you feel on top of the world. They endure all your crazy tantrums just ensuring they are there for you.They pick you up when you fall down. They fight with you. They make-up with you. They listen to you. They teach you to trust.

And yes! I am lucky to have one such friend. 
Thank you for being there, A!

4. mY faVoRiTe quOtE..

Day 4, Saturday: Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it

I have never been a great fan of quotes. But if I have to pick one its got to be this.

“For every quote out there, there is an equal and opposite quote somewhere else!”

And why I love it? because it is so true.

A silent man is a wise one.
A man without words is a man without thoughts.

What will be, will be.
Life is what you make it.

Never too old to learn.
You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.

Cross your bridges when you come to them.
Forewarned is forearmed.

3. I aM unComFortable wheN...

Day 3, Friday: Things that make you uncomfortable

I am uncomfortable when...

When I just can't stop laughing no matter how much I try!

When I stand out in a crowd.

When I enter the church late, during sermon and have to walk all the way past the staring eyes to the very first pew which, incidentally, happens to be the only one empty!

When I am home alone (for the night.)

When the doctor says "please get into the hospital gown"

When someone comes to me and waves vigorously saying a big HELLO and I have no clue whatsoever as to who that person is.

When I accidentally hit the send button on an email which I was NOT intending to send!

When I am around people who smoke.

When the person at the next table just cannot stop staring at my plate.

When I have to eat a seemingly large burger in front of meticulously dressed executives picking at their salads.

When people assume they know what I am going to do next and get offended when I end up not doing what they assumed.

When I hear the words "we need to talk" .

When I have guests over for dinner.

When people look at me and say "Oh My God, you are married for 10 years? I thought you were just out of college!"

When someone asks me about something that I am supposed to be proficient in and all of a sudden I just draw a blank.

When I have just done something silly hoping nobody would have noticed and turn around to see a group of people staring at me.

When I am asked to write about things that make me uncomfortable and I just can't seem to stop writing!

2. SomeThinG I Am GoOd aT...

Day 2, Thursday: Educate us on something you know a lot about or are good at. Take any approach you'd like (serious and educational or funny and sarcastic)

Today's prompt is a really difficult one. Not because I don't know what I am good at, but because I am good at so many things (you can find the list below), that it is difficult to choose one.

After much deliberation I decided to pick "The Art of Procrastination".

"What you can do tomorrow, you dare NOT do today!"

There are many ways to procrastinate.
Keep your mind engrossed in doing something fun that you don't remember the work you actually have to do. My favorite is playing Farmville, it just sucks time right out of your day like magic!

There is a very popular myth that procrastination is bad. Don't you ever fall for it! that is a hoax!

For there are many a benefits to procrastinating

if you procrastinate a task long enough, eventually someone else will do it for you!
And the adrenaline rush you get when you do something in the 11th hour is just an out-of-the-world experience! (Just like how I have been stalling this post up until the last minute! Well, actually it is already May 3rd (00:45) here in Sydney!)

So what are you waiting for? Just go for it!!
