Time is Precious .. !

When I was just checking out Indiblogger site, I came across the Surf Excel Matic's Get smart contest .. Looking at the topic for the contest .. It brought on an instant smile in my face, specially on a Sunday evening when you think of getting extra 2 hours to do what you like to do, it can't get any better ..

While I was thinking about it, there were just too many things that came to my thought and how I missed doing stuff that I love so much ...

It takes two to tango ... but with two hours everday I would opt to go to dance class. It is something that I always loved doing but never got the time to learn it professionally ..

I am also thinking of learning cooking .. 2 more hours a day would certainly help me try out a new dish each day .. even if it is going to mean making a mess of the place or my clothes (Surf Excel Hai na .. ;) )

I would love to blog .. there is just so much of thought and so many experiences that I come across everyday and having got into the habit of blogging about almost anything .. I find the experience to be incomplete when I don't blog about them .. Blogging in the move would be great as well .. !

Two extra hours over the weekend would also mean time for long drives, a little bit of cleaning my room ..

I might also catch up with reading, doing my daily bit of walking, getting in touch with friends from school and college, spend time with family at home and visit friends whom I haven't met for many months now ..

I would really love to hear what you would do, if you had two extra hours ??

Thanks to Indiblogger and Surf Excel Matic to have come up with this competition. It actually made me think of things that I love doing and would make me conciously devote sometime to do them all :) :)

If you like my post, do vote for me here.

Thank you very much! Ya, any time I have the first thing I want to do is blog :) Guess, I'm just a bit too addicted to blogging and don't get to blog as much as I want to..

Shalini Gowrisankar said...


Thank you very much! best wishes to you too .. :) Blogging has become a part and parcel of life, it used to be an everyday activity but not any more. That is what I miss doing now.

You said you'd like to read more? Well, try reading Haruki Murakami's Norwegian Wood. I won't say anything in its praise, you read it, and fall in love with it yourself :)

Lovely post, did I say that? :)

Could you read my entry into the very same contest? And if you like it, give it a vote? I'd be most grateful :)
