DAY4: Typical love story & V the F**kers…

DAY4: Typical love story & V the F**kers…

Oh I can’t explain what I was feeling for the whole day. The whole day went into excitement. I didn’t have much work other than some bugs. Thanks to Abhilash (my project partner) to take charge of each work for the day. I got dresses ready for everyone. We were ready to rock. I was not afraid of pruthvi’s team as he didn’t have good dancers. One more thing, he keeps dance steps that he can do with good effort that how can expect to be smoother for other team member. I heard that shalini and vidhi has joined his time at last minute. Let’ see what they come out with.

Rock on… was ON….

I succeeded. Yes I did it. No, no, I’ve not won the competition but I didn’t what I wanted to do. We played on the Rock On song. It was amazing. Me, alpesh, anupan and krunal were rocking. I really loved it. We played on the song ‘Meri laundry ka ek bill’ from Rock on songs. Wow amazing experience.

Typical love story:

Mail send by janak about the story of the theme was really nice effort. Really an effective mail to put first impression. Theme was about typical love story where two groups are fighting for a girl and girl gets married to some other person. Interesting part was when god gets happy with them and gifts them another girl for continuing their pataving process. Story was good but competition was all about dance which only being done by Prutvi other than him everyone was just to fill up space. Prutvi danced very well. So we had two teams to compete with 1st was Swati and second was Vidhi.

V the Fcukers…

Costume really gave me some confidence at last. Though I was not happy with everyone’s look. I make up my mind by thinking that at least I was looking good. The song had begun jumping in my mind. It was really hard to be on the stage. The entry was rocking. Warm welcome from people really got our confidence on high. I don’t know about the others. I had forgotten one step during the whole dance but at least I didn’t make it look like a stupid has lost one step. Everything was ok. I was not satisfied with the team dance. Team was looking a little over confidence. Anyways everything went well. Back to back four rocking songs.

1. Bachna ae hasino,
2. Dhoom-2 title,
3. Golmal &
4. Bebot. (Wow!!! I was happy with my song selection.)

So the competition was over and it was time to choose the winner. Guess what It was tie at first. There were 5 teams. Two teams voted for us and two teams voted for Swati’s team, now what? Public opinion. Swati was in against of it. May be she was afraid to loose title of combined winner. 90% public voted in favour of us. Hurry!!! We were the clear winner. Wow!!! Winning was not that important for me this time as I clearly wanted to enjoy this one.
So I did. Wonderful week has been over. Back to sophisticated stupid life at office! I’ll definitely remember these 4 days through my entire life.

Thanks God, thanks kanuda!!!!

Rock On Day3: NameLess1

DAY3: NameLess1
Swati, anupam, nirav etc…

The practice of this team was hidden we were never aware of what was going to happen. They practiced at unknown places so that no body knows about their dance. We all were expecting it to be something extra ordinary. And ya it was!!! Way the team has been dressed up rang warning bell in mind. It said, “Either get dressed of or get out of the competition.” Everything went perfectly well for the team.

Good thing was to see maulik dancing on the floor. Swati and Jatin’s dance was again amazing. One more reason to wake up and do something. Dance went superb. Now we had more troubles coming up. We not only have to beat today’s and yesterday’s performance but also we have to beat tomorrow’s performance which is from Pruthvi’s team. I’m sure he’ll deliver something GOOD. Our practices got doubled, we went to dance floor for practice as well. I was not satisfied the way we were dancing. We had bunch of freaks who believes in copying steps from one standing ahead. What more they never want to believe that they are doing so. Freak… is the word most suitable.

Rock On DAY2

DAY2: V the Rockerss..
Alpesh, Vidhi, chirag, etc….

Now that’s what I call competition. I had seen dance of this team once or twice when they were practicing. But today it was far better than what I was under impression of. Specially the chirag, he was doing really funny steps. By funny I didn’t mean not good enough but he was just excellent in the song ‘ena mina dika…’. Costume selection was ultimate. Alpesh was high. With a sip of whisky before going on stage, he spitted his personality. He became unstoppable after that. Damn!! Good one.

I was talking about make-up that Karuna did yesterday with someone today. She shouldn’t have done that. But not learning from mistake, Vidhi also blindly followed her and ended up looking like ***...
Anyways, at the end of the day, V The Rockerss.. scared us a little bit as my team has nothing like dress code, no funny steps to impress people but simple easy steps to finish up the performance.

We had some hard practice after finishing today’s performance. Believe me everyone in my team was a little bit afraid. Afraid of loosing after watching today’s performance.

Rock On DAY1

Finally after long weeks of hectic schedule in project, I got something to chill about at office. Yes we are coming up this ROCK ON event at office. All preparation are done, every one is set and now its time to enjoy. ROCK ON event is basically a dance competition where 5 teams are messing with each other with their dancing shoes on and grooving on dance floor. We had been practicing for it for last one month. For me this dance competition was everything. I like dancing as much as I like s*x. ha ha ha ha.

DAY1: Dragon
Pathik, Karuna, Aashish, Rupesh, etc.
The excitement was on high peak. Pathik’s team was not threat for us as they were not that good at dancing. I tried helping him in the starting but I was already out of time so couldn’t give much time for his team. Karuna was main leader in the team but she was not creative enough to get good dances.

Event has begun I was loosing my patients, went to parking lot as quickly as possible. I couldn’t help pathik in arrangement due to busy schedule. Me & chintan did not let people get bored by doing time pass. They arrived, music was started, flashes have started from everyone’s camera and the dance began. It was all going OK. Suddenly all things went black. Actually, the lights were gone due to heavy load. No body realized what was happening. I got a good time to clean my hand on pathik and his team in the dark. Someone went to switch off the A.C of the office to get it started again. Coming up with mocking faces of alpesh and vivek for a song was really a funny part of the whole day.

There was something, some sort of energy was missing once after that power off thing. Team was looking more confusing and little bit of frustrated. And so it affected their dance. Dance was not good enough to give any kind of competition. But I would like to cheer for pathik’s team for such a wonderful effort. Day was really good.

Really Simple Goal Setting

My favorite simplicity blog, Unclutterer, recently did a good post on goal-setting software called Lifetick, which is actually pretty cool. But as I was playing around with its nice little interface, I realized that for me, such a program is overkill.
I believe in keeping your goals simple, and if you do that, goal-setting and goal-management doesn’t require software.
In fact, you can do it with a single index card.
The key to simple goal setting is to not have too many goals. In fact, regular readers know that I advocate One Goal when possible. While that’s not always possible for some people, having too many goals makes things complicated and requires a more complicated system for keeping track of your goals.
