SNOWY



She is Snowy, barely 3 months old. Isn’t she cute? Definitely she is but very naughty too, full of life. As soon as the door is opened she sneaks outside. Whoosh! And she is down the stairs. We have to run fast to catch up with her before she escapes. 

And guess what she did to me. While on lunch I was playing with her on the lap. I was making a pout of my lips and grinning at her when all of a sudden she jumped up and locked her lips with mine. She made a small scratch on my lower lips and there was shed of a drop of blood or two.

I took it easy but my mom, the most unfriendly person with animals became frantic and forced me to go to the hospital for vaccine. However much I convinced her that the puppy did not bite me she was all deaf ears. 

The thought of syringe gave me goose bumps and I was trying to avoid that. But she was insisting on the vaccine and her stubborness?? I finally had to consent to take the vaccine. I thought just a vaccine and I will be done. Alas! That wasn’t it. I got two vaccines, on both arms:(. Not only that, I have to go for 4 more vaccines, Goodness gracious me! I tried to convince the doctor not to prescribe me vaccines but she was like 'to be on the safer side ' I  should be vaccinated with the rabies vaccines. I tried to make her understand that it was not a dog bite but just a scratch from the dog’s lips. But she would not agree.

The next morning I woke up to the terrible pains of syringes on both my arms. What an awful morning it was. I could not lift any of my arms and it got me bed ridden the whole day. Neither could I sleep on any side with my arms underneath:(. I had to call in sick at office.  Now I am just wondering if I should stop the vaccine because I cannot afford to go through another pain for a fortnight because I still got 4 more doses though with breaks in between. It is not a bite; I am telling you but just a locking of lips which bumped my lips and it bled. Again I am terrified that later on in life I would have complication. 

I am seriously thinking on stopping the vaccine. I need your suggestions, please help!

Happy Blog Anniversary

Image courtesy: Google

Gosh! It has been a year exactly since I started blogging. No no, not a year but two. A year in another blog by the name (reminiscence.blogspot.com) and a year in this blog (irelatetothat.blogspot.com). So two years altogether! I had to leave the earlier blog because I was not using the old email id attached to it and unfortunately I deleted the whole account. In that process I lost my blog and could not retrieve it. My bad! How technically poor I am:(. 

So when I started this new blog last year at this time of the month, I promised myself that I will remember every anniversary of my blogging journey. And gosh! I nearly forgot it since it is 12th April today and my blogging anniversary is supposed to be on 7th. Fortunately I remembered it while browsing through the old posts. So what if its not April 7th? Its April, the month I started blogging last year and that’s how I am here today.

A year has gone in the wink of an eye. But so much has happened in this past year. I have come to terms with life. Starting from a new career, a place of my own where I can call home, to making new friends and new people-I got a new life in itself! In all these aspects of life I have matured a year independently. Oh how hard it is to start a life of your own. I have always thought that I have been independent all this life. But how wrong I was! Instead I have been too dependent on my parents morally and financially. 

Now earning my own bread and butter has been the toughest task so far. To have to pay your own rents, do the grocery shopping that should last you for weeks and a month, managing my finance: it’s a Herculean task for me. A couple of times I even googled on how to manage my finance soundly :P, stupid me! Because the end result was same. :(

And the bus and taxi rides to and fro to your office in Thimphu costs you a nightmare when you look in to your purse at the end of the week. Hopefully, I learned to drive which I have always wanted to and commuting to office has been a lot easier now. But crisis for your car refueling starts in every time I read a fuel hike in the papers. How difficult it is to be an adult, I wonder now. 

Whatsoever, all this has made me a year wiser now and I hope to remain so. Memories; sad, happy, good and bad have been a kaleidoscope now. Sometimes it had really obstructed me from moving forward in life. However, ‘everything should move on’ and “things are to be let loose if it isn’t your’s” thoughts have pushed me this far in life. So this is to my year of blogging, Happy blog Anniversary! Hope to celebrate my journey of writing with more years to come. :)
