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! :)

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

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

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…

A nameless relationship--a short story by Preeti Shenoy.

Today---just a photo for you.

This picture was clicked a little while ago. I posted it on my Instagram  with the caption:
Hang on to everything that makes you feel good ! Hold tight and do not let go. Especially true friendships. <3 I am blessed to have some great friends in my life, and that reflects in all my books, all my writing. My novels are mostly heart-warming and always look at the bright side of life.

But what a lot of people do not know is that I write very dark short stories.


One of my short stories has just released.
You can get it here:  http://amzn.to/2osqRam

(It's not an e-book..It is a short story and it is available only on Kindle. You can download the Kindle app if you do not own a Kindle)

That's all for today.
New post tomorrow.
