You may want to unsubscribe now...

A few months ago, when Manisha asked the same of her readers, it was for a totally opposite reason than mine. She was about to embark on the NaBloWriMo.
I, on the other hand, have already embarked on a journey I never thought I would take again after I was done with my degrees and started working. Now, a decade and some later, in my adopted country where it is never too late to start anew, I have decided to get a degree in arts, something I had always wanted to do.
Combined with all the trappings involved with being a mom and a good student, it is hard to keep up with the obligations of a blog not to mention hours spent blog hopping and facebooking.
When Randy Pausch tells you to prioritize your work load according to the following rule, you listen and as a result, blogging takes a back seat to the four year old, school and the four walls one calls a home.

That is not to say I am taking a permanent break from blogging. I will still post but not on a regular basis. Or should we say my regular basis will be sporadic, as evident from this second post in a month.
If any of you want to catch up with me or what is going on in my life, you can always look me up on 359 days of DSM, where I try to post at least once in two days. Why that and not DSM, you may ask? Because it takes me a few minutes to post here as opposed to a few hours on this blog.
So, if you decide to unsubscribe, I understand and agree. Let the countdown begin.

  8. Good luck with the school and being a mom. I am glad I finished it before I had kids even though sometimes I regret that I could've had them early if not for school.

  9. Good luck with Uni and taking the kid to soccer games in a mini van. I'll keep checking both blogs and will give you a shout if we come to DFW. You can come home anytime when you come to Houston too.

  14. I love both the videos, and I'm glad you posted them, because before Randy Pausch (aka now) I would have poured all my enthu into the non-important things - guess why - because they are usually more fun! And completely off topic, why does Mr. pepin remind me always of Pepe le Peu.....
    Good luck with school, I really enjoy your DSM posts, its such a vibrant slice of your life. Sorry I haven't been commenting as much. I will miss your blogging motivation for me though :-(

    It will be fun to see you post here though.

  16. Wonder where my comment to this post went!

    Anyways, I dropped in to say that I made your Indori Poha this morning and we loved it! It is the fennel, I think, that makes a world of difference. Didn't have grapes or pomegranate on hand for the garnish. Next time - it was so delicious that I know I will make poha this way often. Thanks for sharing.

    Hope you are enjoying your Uni, but I am missing your posts.
