How many times has it happened that you call someone and they don’t pick up your call? What if the trend keeps continuing with an average of more than twice a week? Does that become a cause of worry? Do you get insecure?

Let me tell you what I do.

I FREAK OUT! Even if it is for a while, I freak out when my favorite humans don’t return my calls. I have a good patience level in these matters. I understand that everyone is busy and are juggling with priorities. These priorities leave little or no time for them to utilize in a conversation with me. But what I certainly don’t or cannot understand is the fact that why would it take someone more than a week to respond back?

Yes, I can logically and emotionally understand your perspective but not getting even 2 minutes out of an entire week cannot be justified unless something drastic has happened. It is not easy staying positive during this time as the insecurity builds at a rapid place. You are very likely to react in a very bad way and end up arguing with that person. That won’t end well.

I agree you want to vent out your disappointment and anger that they could not even provide you with the basic attention of 2 minutes. You expected something and they could not deliver. That hurts.

What you can do?

Well, for starters, not being angry is the main motto. Not raising your voice is the second. You can let the other person know that you are upset in a very civil tone. I know it takes time. (Believe me when I say this… I could have gotten angry earlier at the drop of a hat).

But please talk to that person whenever they call back. Remember that when you avoid them as a mode of payback, they might not understand. There will be a broken bridge between you two. Also, try thinking from their perspective as well. Give them the benefit of doubt. And finally, if you want to talk to someone or miss them, give them a call. Do not think it makes you look desperate or needy. Do not bring your ego in front. If you miss the person or want to talk to them, you give them a call or drop them a text. It’s totally their decision to answer or delay their response. But if you like them and their company, call them every time.

Spread the love...

Horsy-Piggy-Froggy.

Those 3 words have shaped our lives during MBA.

Like last year I sit in front of my desktop writing this post and wondering… “How the hell did we manage to keep this madness up and running?”

I still don’t have an answer so I’ll move ahead with the post.

So, it’s our horsy a.k.a Jessica’s birthday.

A Memory from last year’s epic birthday bash.

If I had to tell you guys how many names we have given her then one post might be a bit less for it.

But don’t worry horsy, we won’t divulge the names to anyone.

It’s your birthday na. So maaf kiya.

Do you remember those times we sat together for lectures? (Oh yeah, that one also where Piggy answered every time he got the chance… I still haven’t forgiven him for that.)

The never ending chats on stupid things which did not make sense?

Sometimes we only laughed… stopped… then laughed a little more!

And the picture moments were too much.

I look so obedient…

There was a time when my only purpose of coming to college would be to meet you guys. Yeah, really.

We connected very well. Like it was “meant to be” types. 😛

I can’t believe I actually wrote the above line.

Whatever.

My page… My words.

Anyways if I keep talking of our moments, even 1500 words would seem less and forgive me but I’m not going to write such a lengthy one again. 😛

So moving on ahead, our friendship has scaled a lot of heights. It has also witnessed a lot of lows too. But we’re still hanging in there. This bond won’t break that easy.

(Not until one of you literally move out to someplace where there is no steady internet connection)

I see some of our pictures together and damn there’s a bit of change in me and piggy.

But u our dear horsy have not changed a bit.

Before you could deny, here’s some proof… 😛

Honestly, the only thing people can see is your face.

Jokes apart, we have always had a good time when you’re around.

I can speak TV Shows with you all day long and you know it.

Time spent with you is always cherished by us.

The place doesn’t matter. Nor does anything else.

As long as we are together i doubt we’d need anything else.

(Too much emo in the above line nah?)

Anyways, your 2 favorite animals would like to end this small post by wishing you a happy birthday and wish that you get what you want. That you always smile and be the same. (Just meet us more often or we won’t talk to you haa)

Oh yea, btw piggy made a small video just for you which is waiting in your mail inbox.

It has some of our memories.

Do have a look. Don’t cry ha please!

We love you.

With Love,

Piggy and Froggy

Good Morning.

Today, whilst checking out Housing.com and their new look, I happened to come around few pictures which signifies the importance of being #together in this journey of life.

6c525bdc-13d1-49a0-8cb5-09ed5754583b-medium

I then remembered a situation which took place last year. That situation took almost 8 months and help from few important people in my life to come out from. So I thought, why not share it with you guys. Here’s a story close to my heart which I now put forth you.

May 2014 – Completed MBA in Finance.

June 2014 – Job search begins.

January 2015 – The search still continues.

That’s my story.

I, Lancelot Quadras after completing my degree started losing confidence in myself at a rapid pace. Interview after interview, facing rejection became part of my reality. There were times I could not sleep. There were times I introspected on what I’ve been missing out on. There were times I questioned my capabilities. 

8 months after my college life was over I still had no job. At that time i could be compared to a maze, where there is no way out. Only twists and turns leading to different p-laces, but not to the end. That feeling of doing nothing and having nothing to do… many can relate to it. The question then arises; how you deal with it? What happens when you can’t find the end of the tunnel; when everything looks bleak; when everything around you only seems to pull you down; your morale is at an all time low. I described it a bit dramatically. But yeah, the feeling was upsetting to heights I don’t want to measure anymore in this lifetime.

I am lucky to have few people whom I care about. I’m even luckier when I tell you that these few people have been there for me in my happy moments, times when I need some advice, times when I just want to be heard and finally… times when I just wanted to hear and accept the truth.

When I think about how I made it so far without doing something stupid or slipping into the pool of sadness, I just look at the almighty and thank him for keeping so many angels beside me. The angels are in the form of my family and a few friends.

I have My Parents to thank for their understanding. It’s not easy to look at your son struggle for a job when you’ve given your 100%. There were moments when I could see a bit of frustration in their eyes. Sometimes they must have seen the sadness on my face. But they’ve made sure to keep me happy no matter what.

I have a few Set of Friends to thank for providing a never ending funda on life, success and failure talks, cracking jokes and just about bringing a smile on my face when all I wanted was nothing more than solitude. I was wrong. I needed them and they came to me, made me laugh, gave me hope and the strength I needed to come out of this situation.

The result of their belief in me did pay off. I got a job on 12th February, and that was one of the best days of my life. Everyone’s happy. My family and friends said they knew I’d make it one day and yes I did make it.

Alone everything looks kind of impossible but #together we can scale new heights. I couldn’t have managed my confidence, be positive, if it were not for my parents and friends. I’m glad I have them in my life.

It’s truly said that sometimes even an “I’m here for you” can bring in hope and strength in us which can help us to #lookup and rise up to the occasion.  So have there been occasions when you felt everything was not going your way but there were some important people who were there for you, believed in you and with their help got you out safely? If yes, then please share it with me. Let the world know the power of being together.
