Why? Why the hell not!

It's around the time when the people who didn't get married the first time round get married. And the ones who are already married are with kids. It's around the time when the second round of pity stares envelop me. "Why aren't you married?" "Oh, don't worry, you'll find him."

I wasn't able to comprehend earlier what the big deal was if you were unmarried and single at an age when everyone is getting hitched. It's quite simple, really. If you're not in love, not in a committed relationship, how will you get married? But my simplistic thoughts on love and commitment entered a vortex of circumstances. Questioning parents were bad enough, now there are questioning friends. Its not the questions themselves, the pity that follows it, the self-righteous smug all-knowing advice - all are a thorn on my behind.

Suffice to say I'm walking the tightrope of staying the hell away from unwarranted advise and a zen state.

Words are like muscles. They need to be exercised everyday for them to get stronger.

In that case, I have been shirking the gym for a while. Sure, I write at work, but work is different - more professional.

This space seems very alien to me. More so now that I've cleaned it up than ever before. I read the flurry of blogs on my right and think about the comment spam spree I loved going through. New girl in Toronto, I keep wanting to say stuff on your posts, but end up 'liking' it by clicking on those convenient check-boxes.

I'm just gonna make a smiley face and hope it suffices as a poor season finale. And bring a cliffhanger the next season around.
