I just looked at my dashboard today, and saw that the blog views had suddenly shot up today from 5 odd to 30! So I guess people do like thankful tuesdays then. 🙂 That’s very gratifying indeed! I’m sorry for the delay though – will try to post in the morning instead of the night.
Today was a weird day. I woke up very late and didn’t want to start my day at all, given that I had gotten off to such a bad start. But when I look back, I actually had a pretty productive day. So I’m thankful that I didn’t let my morning sulkiness affect the rest of my day.
I’m also thankful that I finished another project at Toastmasters! Getting to “Competent Communicator” slowly and steadily. 🙂 My speech was about Pongal (TamilNadu’s harvest festival) and was well received. I still haven’t got over my fear of giving up my notes (although I don’t use them! I just like the feeling of them in my hands..). Apparently, it is a major minus point and totally reduces the impact of the speech. And pause fillers are a big drawback as well. I said 18 “ums” this time around!
Anyway, I am thankful I picked up the guts to finish this project. I am still not sure if Toastmasters-the-club is helping or not, but atleast I am speaking in public a lot more often. That’s got to be a good thing for sure.
I am thankful that I’ve gotten back to my organiser. It’s made life better. Thanks Manager, for keeping tabs on me!
I am thankful for chocolate milk. Need I explain more? 🙂 It is bliss. Cold milk on a warm night.. very refreshing.
I am also thankful for http://www.fredwilson.fm. This guys (who is a VC in NYC) posts music everyday and his tastes correspond closely with mine. I never have to bother about Youtube-ing songs; I always just go to his tumblog. You should check him out!
I am thankful for Max Brenner’s chocolate cake. My tongue salivates just thinking about it. Slurp. Too bad it creates such a long lasting damage to my bank account. It’s a once-in-a-sem kind of luxury.
I am thankful that I have only three more days of work left before NUS gives us 4 whole days of holidays for Chinese New Year. Yay! I wonder if I’ll be given so many days off when I start work?
Drumroll.. Tomorrow is McBreakfast Day!! Food makes me so happy. I just wish it wouldn’t make my jeans get tight.
That’s about it for today. Time to collect my laundry and sleep. Good night, friends. Have a nice day tomorrow!
