hate hate hate this place!!!

As much as people tell me to love the place i'm in rite now, i can't. however much i try, there are certain things people cant help but hate!!!
like i was called by this certain city editor or something, dono her exact post, ok so she tells me, keep ur phone on silent,no calls durin work hours- i always keep my phone on vibration except for the one day that i forgot and my phone started ringin-apparently some person complained- i have to say this its my blog anyway- the same person and the editor herself has her phone ringin every half hour. HYPOCRISY at its best u may say

and she goes on to say no internet for me!!! disgusting!!!
wat am I supposed to do during the 6 hours 45 mins of my 7 hour job when they dont give me work??? bhangra???

anyway i'm so freakin pissed today that i cant even stop posting this keepin in mind the advices well wishers and elders have given me AND i apologise to u pradeep sir and shreerekha ma'am but i cant but hate this place.
me, along with 2 interns- who have their own story of discrimination in this organisation-(will post their story later) were just sitting as we were given no work and this chick walks in and stares and comments oh ORKUT WATCHERS COMMUNITY- WAT THE HELL ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO- oh i so so freakin hate this psycho place...

This person who's new too older than me tho, taught me the tv page and now when my boss tells me to do it myself he gets pissed with me and if i try to ask him somethin that i cant remember he frowns and cribs and acts all weird...SO IRRITATING

i came in today and this computer with the internet was free and so i just sit to check my mail for 5 mins and this man- i hate him so much for his constant unending giggling with another man just behind my desk-walks in and stares and says-loud enuf for the editor to hear who's sitting in the opposite desk- and says "EXCUSE ME" -- like i broke the computer or somethin...oh such a .
anyway i know these minor things shouldn matter and i shud adjust to the place but my only argument is that i would have cared a damn for all these silly things and persisted, had the job been somethin i really enjoy, something i'm born to do...but this ISN'T

random madness

Sometimes...nothin makes sense

I dono wat to do then

have been waiting

its been almost 5 years and a weird thought caught me today

i haven felt really really happy about anything in the last 5 years...I haven laughed loudly and heartily in the past 5 years

ive been awake, ive been alive, ive been around, ive done this and ive done that, ive achieved this and lost that, ive been sad and ive been depressed, ive been ok and ive been laughing, ive slept and ive sat, but still the things are slow,,,im waiting

im waiting

from so long... id have died by now

so many things changed and still do.

i feel sad and i feel low

i want to cry... no shoulder... no tissue too

its sad

im caught almost trapped

between wat i want to do and wat i need to do..

pain so terribly unbearable










pullin me down

cant type

pain...its hurting

someone stop this

im not likin it



From the past few days, i've been surfin thru and the most irritated i've ever felt in my life.
Time to remember all the mistakes i've made in life-
1. Quitting mid-day just coz I got BORED. - Its as Ridiculous as I can get
2. Taking up the responsibility to organise the Farewell for our seniors - Got misunderstood as terribly as anyone could get
3. Went to Chattisgarh, Came back to Bangalore - Both of these ruined my life, changed me, made me a different person. The real me is hiding, somewhere deep inside...and comes out very rarely when faced with rare circumstances and surrounded by people who really understand me.

Of all these mistakes I think this present mistake isn't a really big one - Joining Deccan Herald.
Anyway I had to do this to see how grave a mistake i've made.
Sensible people might laugh it of sayin "come off it, this isn't a mistake at all"
Honest people might add to this "Its all a part of life and this is a learning experience"


I just so hate this place and the work they make me do.
Shit i'm dying, i'm so irritated.
I've been through the best of positions, best of jobs, best of sallaries being offered-its all available and i'm sure i'll get those jobs if i apply- But i'm stuck @ DH.
Was speakin to Kevin the other day and he tells me Indian Express is offering more than what i'm getting paid here @DH.
Doing something i'm least interested in, sitting @ a place and working.
I hate this!!!
I hate this so much...
