A decade to achieve

Joy has tagged me yet again. And this time it is the plans for the next ten years. The way years keep rolling down one after another, i thought i should pick up this tag fast enough before we reach 2008.
And here it goes:
* I would like to lead life with a balanced and calmer attitude, more focused. That said want to add a few minutes of yoga and meditation to my daily routine.

* As kids grow, i would like to spend more and more quality time with them. Would like to stuff the whole world in their little brains and give them a conquering attitude towards life and its puzzles.

* It has been long that i have gone to theatres to watch movies with friends. Probably i get to do that once in a while to rejuvenate oneself.

* There were times when a whole day of reading in the library would enthral me. I would like to get back to those pleasurable days.

* I am sure no man can achieve perfection, but atleast would like to aim at it.

I would like to tag

Wishing everyone a happy new year 2008...

Why has it to be tough again???

These days i am with a heavy mind. Not able to sit down and blog. I have become restless. We plan to R2I and one of the biggest hurdles i felt in the process was job search. All over again. I know it is not tough, but at times it is mind boggling. It gives one the same frustration as a ever pending greencard process does.
Memories come back of those days when you are a fresher off the boat from a reputed engg college. Though we had campus recruitment in our college, just computer science and Electronics branches were benefitting from this. So we still had to apply apply and get no reply. Finally we started to go to a few software companies in Bangalore to physically hand out resumes as our seniors thought that was a way out. And it really happened with me, a new company called me for an interview and gave me a job as a fresher to start with. I wish a miracle happens again.
Now the next dilemma. Inside me there are 2 minds. One says any job should be good as long as it keeps me busy through out the day and i get to spend the rest with my kids. The other mind says that no such job exists and in that case it is better to be home. The fear is that all companies mainly work for US clients and most of them have timings of 1pm-10pm. Imagine both mom and dad coming home at 11pm.
Oh wow the fun of life is its uncertainty. Let's see how it gets along. I wish Santa does miracles to the big guys too.. Won't you Santa??
Wish you all a happy Holiday Season and a wonderful 2008...
