Sunday Blues...

Well.. the Birthday bash is over… n here I am… an year older, but none the wiser… Thank you all my friends for making my birthday special… J



Your wishes made the grief of growing older seem a little less... I had only wish… N tht was to make this year as beautiful as the others that passed by…


Here I come year 22… lets have a blast!!!



Coming to the post… I was getting bored one evening and my cell beeped… Anxiously I opened the msg to see Reliance asking me to watch a new Mallu movie n answer few dumb questions… I glanced at the day n saw that it was a SUNDAY…. Sunday??? What does Sunday mean to me nowadays??? All days are alike.. be it a weekday or a weekend…


I was reminded of my childhood… not exactly childhood..


Till a few months back.. I had this mixed feelings bout Sunday….


The mornings I wud be gleeful… happy… my afternoon siesta… but as it turned dark… I wud have Sunday blues… Everyone would know the reason.. it was the Pre Monday blues… I plainly disliked Sunday evenings…


I would be dull… and sit with a L look on my face… Not even dad’s offer to take me out would cheer me up…


When I was a kid, Sunday evenings meant the 4’o clock movie.. which ended by 6:30 and then I would take my books… to finish the weekend homework..


As I grew older, it used to be at 10 PM on Sunday when I used to call my friends, start working on my seminars, assignments and reports… N I would usually stay awake into the wee hours of the morning… trying to get that over and done with…by 8…


During my college years… yes, the whole 5 years… I do not ever remember having submitted anything on time.. I used to do everything at the last min… Procrastination was my nemesis… it is, even now…Leaving things till the last min, I do it in a jiffy.. N it turns out to be perfect just the same.. even if I had done it before time.. So what difference does it make if I Procrastinate???


I study for my exams the day before them… no, not the day.. I always learn the night before the exam.. and surprisingly do well… I learn quicker, I pay attention and I grasp all the important points enuff to scribble something for 3 hrs…


So… this post dedicated to lovely mixed Sunday evenings I detested n loved at the same time… I miss u…( nostalgic sigh!!!)

Sundays are always travelling time for me..... :)

Not a single weekend I am getting a break.... either to home or somewhere else :)

gkam said...

i actually have mixed feelings for sundays.
mornings are great and you have the whole day to urself, watch TV, movies, hangout with friends..
sunday evenings, on the other hand are like one inch closer towards work, studies, college, blah! i.e. Monday and rest of the week.

but nothing like a relaxing time on sundays :)

Dhanya said...

Belated birthday wishes! Better late than never right? :)

Lakshmi said...

@ Quest... in a couple of months, I ll be doing the same..so as everyone tells me, I should actually be enjoying this...

@ Gauri
I never can relax on Sundays coz the dreaded feeling of the next day being Monday always bugs me as soon as I open my eyes.

@Dhanya
Thanks a million...

Belated Birthday wishes!
True Sunday's were always filled with a movie and lots of tasty food, but as we grew older, the times changed. I love Saturday evenings though, because there is a confidence of a Sunday being existent!

Lakshmi said...

N true.. I love Saturdays too.. i get cheerful n glad thinking I ve got one more day ahead...
