The world really ends in 2012 !!!

Marriage invitation everywhere. Office team and friends everywhere. Same day more than one marriage/reception invitation.

The environment full of it. With a big smile... 'Please do come' is what I'm hearing all the time now.
A tension, a feel of competition, a feel of insecurity is running around everywhere. Like if they wont marry now they never will. Everybody is rushing. From various age groups and then there is a full fledged team who is desperately looking for a partner to be married off by Dec 12'. Then there will be discussion about the partner they are about to get. They would envy, showoff and fuss!

People who aren't marrying this year have a long face. As if the world is really gonna finish off by this year and next year they are just gonna die, that too instantly :P

I'm not against anything, but come on give it ease. The time comes when its supposed to be. If not for you then for others.
They talk and ask about it all the time. Get married soon. Advices flowing. It is the time. Else its too late. When will you? You'll get old. You have settled, what else will you do? You wont get suitable bride/groom. Hurryyy!!! Sooonn....!!!!    Arrghh....  STOP!

Marriages are sometimes looked upon as a goal. Sometimes like all they want is somebody to take care of them. Women on the arms' of their husbands and men on the beauty queens they got.This is the tale all have to say. For some this is not a goal or an achievement, for some like me, there is much more in life. If not defined now, it will be in future.

# Respect individuality. Respect one's decision. Respect one's condition, the reasons, the choice one makes. Why so much pressure is there? Peer pressure, elders and not even the younger people leave you. People who are married will show pity on you, people who haven't will include you in their despair. As if there is just no other way to exist. Once just cant be self sufficient with what the person is doing for the time. IS IT?

Everybody is different! Every relationship is different! 

I will take my life as it comes. Things will happen when its time. The time? I will decide. I will decide things when 'I' find it right. Its Me and completely my decision on everything I do. Right time will be when I feel it and Not when 'others' decide.

Cheers !!

A cute scribble notepad out of waste

I save a lot of one sided used papers, glossy advertisement papers, brochures, card-boards etc.for re-using.

Today I decided to start working on it and came out with a cute little notepad.

This is how I did it, and you can do it too. It is very wise to re-use the paper for the reasons of not wasting the papers, environment cause, less litter and its a cute notebook. Overall took around 45mins to complete it. 
Collect and arrange the papers you would like to make the notebook from. Size! you choose. The shown are basically one sided printing papers of A4 Size.

You could do with some basic stationary items like Scissor, Ruler, Needle and Thread, Paper Cutters, Pencil, Glue etc...

I'm cutting paper into halves to make a small notepad.

All ready to sew. You can sew horizontally or vertically as per you wish. I'm gonna make it vertical. I think it would be easy for a one sided notepad to be used.

I have sewn it and I'm pasting some advertisement papers in the back and front for support.

I pasted some from colorful strips of papers on the front page cutting it out of some old brochures. 
 and ta-daaa .....

It’s ready to use...

Flip and scribble all you think or need of...   :)

Try it on, it’s easy, takes so less time and it’s Eco-friendly... :)  


I would most probably give it away  ^_^
