Yay!! I am 5…

downloadHi friends… There’s double celebration today. This is my 100th post and on this day, 5 years ago I started blogging. I was waiting to give my 100th post today, so as to make it memorable. The reason I started blogging was my love for Writing. I know, nowadays I don’t write enough! I’m trying to get rid of my laziness and write more. I have succeeded to a certain extent. I have started off with another short story, which I hope to publish in the near future.

I have mentioned in my earlier posts that I never expected to reach any milestone in blogging. I loved writing and I wanted to express myself through words (people who know me well also know that I am a very talkative person). That was the time when I felt that blogging is the medium through which I can express myself. Initially, when I started, I did not even expect people to read it. Slowly and steadily I started noticing that people started reading my posts. The visitors on my blog increased by the day.

It was one February afternoon that I decided to start my blog and by evening I was ready with my blog page and My First Post, that was way back in 2013. I did not realise that time what was in store for me. Few months later I met Mayur (my husband) and something clicked and we were married within a year. What I did not know was, that my husband had read my blog post secretly and was very impressed by it. This made my blog very memorable for me. When I first started off, my blog was called My Space, but I changed it about a year ago. My husband helped me revamp my page to Vaishu’s Corner and designed it for me. Also, when I started off I was using blogspot , but after a year I changed to WordPress. I have been more than happy on WordPress.

Whenever I have been to family gatherings or wedding people have appreciated my blog. Of late, I know that I have been a disappointment to you all. I have not been blogging enough. My husband says that I have to respect my fans and write more. I will not make any promises like I have always made. I will make sure I make time for my blog and keep my fans happy. My family has been a great support in this for me, be it my parents, in- laws, sister or husband; everyone has supported me to do what I love, that is writing. I must in such a case give them happiness by writing more. So, friends, be ready to see me on your timelines more often with my blog posts.

I have, finally, decided that I will no more wait for free time to blog. I will make it my priority because not many people get the support to do what they love. When I have such a loving and supportive family and fans, I know I shouldn’t disappoint any of you.

Thank you so much for encouraging me till now and I hope to get the same encouragement in the future as well.

On the occasion of the fifth birthday of my blog I would like to share with you the post that is very close to my heart. It is the post which I wrote on my grand mom’s birthday way back in July 2015 (which happened to be a year after her death). I will share the link of the same so that you can re-read the post that means a lot to me.

Till then, Cheers!!!

Forever Jinxed with Electronics!!

imagesHi friends!! The title might make no sense at the outset, but believe me, it will make full sense once you finish reading the entire thing. I have always been jinxed with electronics/network. From the very first Motorola mobile I had to the latest laptop, somehow, I feel I am jinxed. Initially, with my basic Motorola Mobile, I assumed that the problem I had was due to the mobile being a basic one. I realised much later that it wasn’t the case. It was just me 😊

The basic mobile and the ones that followed had storage and network issues. I kept changing my mobile every year to somehow get rid of the space issue, but in vain. In a hurry to replace my phone, I always ended up buying something which always conked off after a while. I even ported to Vodafone, but you will realise later that it didn’t help much. My previous Samsung Mobile was very good until recently, when it started troubling me. I couldn’t have any of the apps on the phone since I faced acute shortage of space. I decided to put an end to it and went ahead and bought an Iphone. I thought by buying it I will somehow get rid of these issues, but no there was something else waiting in store for me. God was probably laughing at me when I was buying an Iphone as if to say, ‘See what it has in store for you.’ (insert evil laugh)

I have never been a great enthusiast of Iphone, but my husband has always been . . I decided to listen to him blindly. I did not have any problem in the beginning and everything was absolutely fine. I knew that it cannot be true. I was, in fact, sure that something big is in store for me, waiting for the right time and yes, I was right.

Since the phone couldn’t give me any trouble, the network decided to take over. I have had Vodafone network for years now. I have faced little trouble here and there, but it reached its peak in October. The phone never had network and it was impossible for anyone to reach me. I realised at that time that the Vodafone network had problems in our area, but that went on for a month. I placed complaints, but in vain. The Vodafone customer care gave a courtesy call in between and that was it. I decided to do something about it as it was impossible for me to handle it. I work from home and the months of November and December were crucial for me. I did not have means of access as my registered mobile number was not reachable half the time. If I had to make a call, I had to juggle it by putting it on airplane mode. It was getting too much for me. I used to have a lot of patience, but I lost it completely 😊

Finally, in January I decided to take it up seriously. One fine day, I called up Vodafone and yelled at them (I can yell at people left, right and centre when the need comes). They did not give me any positive help and that is when I decided to port out of Vodafone. After I put up the porting request I got numerous calls from Vodafone, but I ignored them all and decided to take the plunge to Jio. I had no idea about it, but yet decided to give it a try since my luck with Vodafone had run out. Touch wood, I am happy with Jio, but the fact that I am jinxed with electronics/network remains intact. There are smaller episodes of my 4G internet working at the speed of 2G sometimes, even now. The only thing I am happy about as I mentioned is that the episodes of slow internet are smaller and less frustrating than before.

Coming to my Laptop. Oh yeah, that is what I meant when I said, I am jinxed with electronics. My old laptop conked off about two and a half years ago because it was old. The new one I bought was fine in the beginning, but as always it now pops up a message every time saying shortage of space. It has popped up probably fifty times while I have been trying to write this article.

So, what do you want to say about this? Don’t you actually think that I am jinxed with electronics and the like? I really think I am and so does my husband, my sister and everyone around me. By reading this post you guys will be giving moral support to me to lead this jinxed electronics’ life.

I know, this was too much drama to handle, even by my standards.

Cheers!!!
