I am basically fundamentally sorry (RJ Balaji Style) for not minding you for a while. Was quite busy with my work and exams. Leave you, Just think about the readers who visited the blog and got disappointed as there isn’t any new post. How many of them would have eagerly looked at their feeds for a new blog post from me, So convey my sincere apologies to them too. This time I thought not to load them with my usual emotional posts or poem, How about something light, something kiddish?
I don’t own a PC or a Laptop now, what I use is the laptop provided by my office. If you are keen about the topic and anxious to know what’s on my desktop,can’t help. Actually there is nothing on it, not even recycle bin icon. Its a plain desktop with a plain background, no icons on it as they were disabled as part of office security policy. Look yourself.
You might ask me, why a post and all for an empty desktop. Actually this one is not about the desktop, its about desk top. I have observed many desks in my office. Some have family pictures, Some have god’s statue, some have awards and some are just empty just like my desktop. So what’s on mine? Like few, mine has got a few toys on it. Sounds Kiddish? Toys are no more kids affair nowadays , they ask for smartphones and tablets to play games.
Few weeks back, I had to stay late at work to complete few pending tasks. Almost everyone left the office, whole office was dark except couple of cubicles (including mine) which are lit up. With a bored mind and tired eyes, I lied on my desk and looked around. What I saw first was me smiling at myself and I am ain’t looking a mirror. It’s a picture of mine gifted by Rams, In which I was happily smiling and wearing my favourite “goCool” t-shirt which was hand painted by best friend SriJani. Even the toys were smiling at me, All of them had a nice smiling face. Then my cubicle panel had a couple of magnetic Smilies, couple of smiling “I love Chennai” Zha cafe postcards and a smiling mickey mouse card. I found everything around me smiling except me. I have no idea what went through my mind at that moment but felt boosted with positive energy. It automatically forced some smile and I started working again. Since then they would always smile at me, and I smile back inspite of any demanding situations.
There are some more trivias about these toys
- All the toys except the panda are McDonald’s kids meal toys.
- All the toys are looted from my colleagues (with their knowledge) except the Night Fury one which I bought myself.
- That Mickey mouse card is an entry card to Disney Word, which was looted from a colleague who made a trip to US.
- Panda is no longer with me and someone took it away 😦 .
Moral of the story:
Have things which make positive impacts and optimistic people around you. They would motivate you silently and help you cross hurdles.
