Daily Prompt: Life Without Computers!

Your life without a computer: what does it look like?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us WITHOUT.

****

Without a computer, I would need to find a new profession!

I would venture outside more and get some fresh air, meet people and get more photographs.

Photographs which are developed in the dark room and not digitally. Overexposed photos and other goof ups. Oh, dear! I am bad with the digital camera, a manual one would be a disaster.

It will be like the old days, watching movies in the theater or getting video cassettes and watching them on television, listening to music on a Walkman. No reviews to tell us which is the good stuff.

I would miss Google the most. All that information that is easily available to us through these search engines is amazing. Imagine looking for that in magazines, newspapers and books. Saving cut outs of articles we may need. Oh no, not again.

The convenience of booking travel tickets, shopping, even paying bills online, gone 😦

Yet, it would bring us close to people around us, help value relationships. Save us from wasting time on social networking sites.

It would be a nice change for a while but I think I would want my computer eventually.

Sorry, I cannot part with it.

Back To School

Daily Prompt: Back to School

If you could take a break from your life and go back to school to master a subject, what would it be?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us MASTERY.

 

It’s got to be geography, I am terrible at it. I am also bad at Math but I don’t want to study it anymore.

Hmm, why geography? I can never confidently tell which city is in which country..that is bad. I have a baby girl now and when she asks me any such question I don’t want to Google the answer. That’s not the only reason, it’s plain embarrassing.

I have been making some efforts to fix this. Part of it includes reading travel blogs:)

Second option : Makeup – I want to learn it professionally. It’s my hobby maybe I can make it my profession.

Daily Prompt : Take Care – Small Battles

Daily Prompt: Take Care

When you’re unwell, do you allow others to take care of you, or do you prefer to soldier on alone? What does it take for you to ask for help?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us HELP.

Awkward is what I feel if I have to ask for help from someone other than my husband. If I am offered help I take it, easily.

When I am sick, I would go to the doctor myself, sleep most of the day. Put off the chores and order some food.

What I need help with is taking medicines. I hate taking pills. I keep staring at the pills as if they will disappear if I stare harder and delay taking them till there is nothing else left to do.

It’s worse if there are several pills. I take them one by one then I am full because I had so much water, a good excuse to take some time off from taking more pills 🙂

My happiness is always short lived, I have to take the next pill and I tell myself its will be over soon. Put on some music to make myself happy. As soon as one pill goes down my throat I run as fast as a sick person can to the fridge looking for something to get the taste or smell off my mouth. My fridge is mostly understocked so I resort to sugar. In case you are wondering, it works.

Phew! one small battle is over. Relax till the next one is close.

RSVP : It’s A Party

Daily Prompt: RSVP

Plan the ultimate celebration for the person you’re closest to, and tell us about it. Where is it? Who’s there? What’s served? What happens?

Its a party! What are we celebrating? Do we need a reason to celebrate? Its a weekend and my friends are free so we are having a get together.

There are about 20 people gathered in my small apartment. Its dark outside so we have put on the soft yellow lights, the special Diwali rustic lamp I like is lit in my room.

Parties should be fun and so we decided to have a theme to it. Today’s theme is Wine and Jazz. We play the music and people get their own wine.

Friends start arriving one by one, each carrying a bottle of wine. The music is playing, its not really jazz just some lounge classics but people hardly notice that as they are busy talking! Everyone is scattered around in small groups.

There is finger food on the table and soon it is all gone so we bring out the delightful pineapple cheese cherry served on ice and its an instant hit. Food that tastes as good as it looks! The wine is poured, glasses clink and there is a happy cheer in the air.

The music changes to house and people get up to dance, some are content just tapping their feet. Then more food is served, chicken starters and biryani. Some of us are getting lazy and sleepy especially the ones who went to work that day. The volume is turned down low and Hindi film music is playing. Someone in the room starts singing and others join in. The party goes on…

Its always fun when friends are around.
