No Strings Attached

You know, I always like to live 2 lives. One that I’m living out there, for the world to see, and the one that I’m living at my place, in my home, with my family and friends. And I hate mixing the two of them. I mean I’m all for caring and sharing but being privy into someone’s life is something altogether different. I don’t mask myself from people who pry, but I don’t think twice before I lash out “It’s absolutely not your business”. I give people their space and I believe I’m entitled to mine too.  Small talk, gossip don’t work for me. I hate people who beat around the bush just to extract a juicy bit of information. I love to make new friends and meet new people  – but not by discussing the latest scandal around. If I’m friends with someone, it’s because we just clicked and connected. Even at work, I find it best and easy to maintain just a professional, entirely “work related” relationship with people around – it just makes things simple and less complicated for me. I wouldn’t want to know or find what what each is doing in his/her day off, or what’s exactly happening in each of their personal lives. Neither, would I like to, in the least, share what I’m up to.

I wouldn’t like to break the wall and connect – that space is reserved purely for family and friends. One major reason I’m never getting on Facebook.

I hoard books for a living. And read them too, when I am not sleeping. I express what I think, so my unheard feelings don't sink. I like to sing when I walk, to keep shades grey, at bay. I speak like a dork, but I don't want to drive anyone away. I write what's real, and nothing fake, so visit my blog whenever you need a break ;)
