Two kinds of people

'myspace

There are two kinds of people in this world. The ones who put away their shoes in the shoe rack, as soon as they enter their homes and ones who kick them off and let them be.

There are two kinds of people in this world. The ones who never misplace car keys (or any other keys for that matter) and the ones who never find them until they search for 6 and a half minutes (or more) on an average.

There are two kinds of people in this world. The ones who plan what they will be having for breakfast, lunch and dinner the next day, and stock up on the necessary ingredients, and the ones who just rummage through the fridge and rustle up a quick meal.

There are two kinds of people in this world. The ones who think before they speak and say politically correct things, and ones who do not think but speak the truth and are very funny. Usually.

There are two kinds of people in this world. The ones who read others blog and do not leave comments and the ones who blog, read others blogs and also leave comments.

There are two kinds of people in this world. The ones who find it very difficult to laugh heartily and the ones who find it difficult to stop laughing.


There are two kinds of people in this world. The ones whose wardrobes are organized (summer is here—winter clothes are dry cleaned, wrapped and put away) and the ones whose wardrobes are stuffed and overflowing with colourful mish mashes . A lot like their lives.

There are two kinds of people in this world. The ones who care about what people say, the conformists and the ones who have a devil-may-care attitude, the non-conformists. The square pegs in round holes—or round pegs in square hole—either ways they don’t fit (and they don’t care)

There are two kinds of people in this world. The ones like the meticulous, organized, proper others and then, others just like me!!

I could go on and on—but you get the point :-)

  6. Sometimes I laugh so much my face and sides hurt and some people look at me like I'm mad. I am also pretty disorganised so I have to be organised sometimes otherwise I would never find anything! LOL!

    I have always been a round peg in a square hole too. It was difficult for me to fit in at school as I didn't dress like everyone else adn didn't like all the trendy thinghs :-) I was just being me!

  10. Moral of the story: there are many kinds of people in the world and I'm glad for that. (I'm very uncomfortable around bipolar concepts lol), I see all shades of grey and never black and white! (which sometimes is frustrating)

  11. And there are two kinds of people.

    The ones who lose themselves in the details and the ones who just have a great time.

  12. Devil Mood: I dont like bi-polar concepts too.Variety is what makes life (and blog posts!)interesting.I never said that the 'other kind' was inferior in any way.Differences are what makes life fun.(besides even those who kick off their shoes HAVE to pick it up later at one point or another!!)

    Mr.J: There are those who have a great time WHEN they lose themselves n the details and others who are so engrossed in having a great tme that they forget to care.

    And that little blue square at the bottom left says it all.

    I need to be neater. But all it takes is someone calling to say they are coming for a visit and----WHOOSH!---it takes me 20 minutes to whip it all into shape.

    Wonderful, Sister!

Here it is mid afternoon and i am thinking about getting my kids prepared for school tomorrow and me ready for return to work. AAmazing that you have had this hour that i am living and breathing through and for me it is yet still a work in progress!! Have a great week Preeti. Glad to have "virtually" met you!

  21. I am a bit of number 1 as well as 2. I am generally organized, but sometimes i just let the things as they are, which is quite fun at times ;-).

    ReplyDelete
  22. So...there are two kinds of people in this world - Those that like to watch Life go by, sometimes Other's Life - and those that Love to participate, Share.
    You sure look like the second type. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. WHAT KIND OF AN IDEA ARE YOU? Are you the kind that compromises, does deals, accommodates itself to society, aims to find a niche, to survive; or are you the cussed, bloody-minded, ramrod-backed type of damnfool notion that would rather break than sway with the breeze? The kind that will almost certainly, ninety-nine times out of hundred, be smashed to bits; but, the 100th time, will change the world.

    Thought it was apt... :)

  24. I guess if there were not both kinds of people in the world then the world would not be complete. If everone was the meticulous kind then there would be no mess anywhere and vice versa. It makes you ponder that even in any marraige too, you need a mix of both for it to work. If both were perfect then there would be a problem as is the case with both being messy and not bothered. What matters I guess is for all kinds of people to build on his or her strength and make the world a better place. God, I guess looks at all this and ensures you meet the right mix of people so that everything is neither perfect nor crappy.

    You would have guessed by now, I am a virgo, a person with clean cupboards and things done in perfect order. Guess a little bit of mess in my life would not do too much harm.

  25. I claim to be no.1; which means I have to leave a comment! ;)
    Now, I am also trying to have my own list of contradictions! :) :)
    Interesting Preethy! :)

  26. What if I find a few things in Category 1 and then a few others in category 2 true about me?

  27. i'm not very much into mundane tasks of everyday boring routine life...organizing my closet is the last thing on my mind...

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

A Valentines Day special! (Win a trip to Mumbai, and attend Women Writers Fest with me!)

Hello!

How have you been? How has the new year started for you? I hope all is good.

 This is  my first post of 2019 (God, where did January go? And where did two weeks of Feb vanish?!) and it's on Valentine's day.


I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following me on Instagram or Twitter or facebook, this isn't really 'new news' to you. I have decided to read a 100 books this year! Yes, a hundred :)

And guess what--I have already finished 13, and am now on my 14th. This is probably one of the reasons, I didn't blog earlier. I was too caught up in reading (and writing my next book). If you want to see all the books I have read, and what I thought of them, I have put them all in the highlights on my instagram page.

You don't need an Instagram account to  view it. Just click on the link, and then look at circular  icon, which is the highlights. I have named it 'Books'. I have also shared tips to read more, My favourite books o…

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchanges.

 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
