Travel Diary: Nashville, TN (Day 3)

Just like my last trip the only beef I had was with humidity. And wearing jeans didn't help my cause either, but over all a great city. It totally surpassed my expectations. 

... And just like that our weekend getaway was about to get over. But not without one more meal, a little more sight seeing and one last glass of wine (at the airport)! I am already nostalgic from the trip. 

Who wants to go on a trip with me? Girls only! (; ... [With the exception of my brother!]

Tough Love

I have come to realize that I am a tough love kinda-person (aka being cruel to be kind). I do not believe in giving away answers to questions (metaphorically speaking) just because someone is asking me. I make them work for it. For several reasons:
A) I hate answering questions
B) I want to be sure they are not wasting my time & energy
However, I do wonder why people are so incapable to helping themselves. Most answers are out there. You just have to try a little harder and be willing to find them. If someone is continuously holding your hand and walking you through life, you are never really going to understand the process, you know? I do realize how cryptic this post might sound but for once I am trying to walk the thin line of diplomacy and honesty so just work with me y’all!

I guess the point I am trying to make is that people are lazy and they are often too quick to question instead of figuring ‘things’ out for themselves. And I despise lazy, spoon-fed, ignorant people! 

In hindsight though, I do think I lack the ability to sympathize. My attitude to most things in life is, “Sh!t happens. Suck it up. Move on.” So if sh*t happens in both our lives, why does your sh*t matters more than mine? I figured it out, so should you. And you'll thank me later: Tough love!

Afraid of Being Judged

Recently a friend asked me if I am afraid of being judged on the basis on my blog and everything about my life that I put out there (in reference to the written content). I thought for a second and replied, “Not at all!I think she thought my writing was a bit too dramatic and too honest. That’s when I realized that after years of blogging I had sort of taken it for granted that by now, everyone would be on board with how this (blogging) works. Reality check: Not so much.

I am not afraid of being judged. On the contrary I find it liberating. This is my way of letting the world know who I am. I don’t have to wear faces any more or impress anyone. However, her comment did take me back to the pre-blogging days. There was a shield between the world and me. What went on in my head was not really shared in words (may be in eye roll and facial expressions). Conversation with her also made me realize that there might be a growing list of people in the #3 category. Just to be clear, I think she (my friend) falls under the #1 category. They might not voice their thoughts but they are definitely out there. Shaking their heads in disapproval right this second :P And the wonderful thing about it is that they are can read mine (thought) while I am protected by their venom coz' lets face it, not everyone has the balls of being honest

The bottom line is whether I blog or not, people are going to judge either ways. This way at least I am getting to keep ‘who I am’ and ‘what I think’ in sync. Right? (: 

This is what I wore on the Day 2 of my Nashville trip.

Travel Diary: Nashville, TN (Day 1)

As you can tell from the title of this post: I went to Nashville, TN this last weekend for a girls' trip. And needless to add, it was AMAZING. There was music, wine, chocolates, and healthy-dose-of-tourism involved! By the way yesterday's outfit was my 'air-travel-style', since I forgot to mention it there! The city is the center of music and hence also known as 'Music City'. And if you happen to like country music, then this is heaven. P.S. With this I can tick off another state from my list. #Winning!
