It's 11.30 am and I receive a phone call from my friend wanting to clear her doubt about one particular concept of Algebra. She sounds tensed.
I ask her to come home, instead of freaking out and she says, don't you want to go to school? We have our Algebra paper in 2 hours.
What did she just say? Algebra paper in 2 hours?
I haven't even opened the book. I hate Algebra. How can I do it in 2 hours?
I am going to FAIL !
I can't find my uniform. I somehow find it and rush to catch the school bus. 
I am late. I miss the school bus. I run to the bus stand. It's been 10 minutes and no signs of the bus. I decide to take an autorickshaw, but wait I don't have enough money to pay.
OMG !! OMG!! OMG !!
I will never make it to the exam hall!!!

This is the kind of nightmare I still get, in spite of the fact that I passed out of High School more than a decade ago.
Mathematics was not my favourite subject, but I scored well.
I have never failed any of my Maths exams and still.... I get these nightmares, which scares the shit out of me. When I wake up, my heart is beating at an alarming rate and I am sweating too.

Sometimes I wish for nightmares involving ghosts, demons and witches. They would be much easier to handle.
But that's not how things work ...Correct?
Moving on to pictures...
The pictures were clicked more than two years ago, outside my SIL's house in Houston, Texas.
She had set up a small but pretty garden outside the main entrance of her house.
And I couldn't think of a much better place to pose.

Top 5 Things that Irritate Me

I have done posts in the past which talk about me.
But I don't think I have done any posts that talk about things that irritate me.
I get easily irritated by the stupidest things. So I thought why not make a lit of it.
Something like a guideline for people who want to get in my good books. :)

Loud Music: I have zero tolerance for loud music. I love music but not in blaring volumes. Even when I use an I pod, my volumes are adjusted at pretty low decibels.

Wasting Water: If you ever see me in public restrooms in Malls or Movie Theatres, chances are that you will see me turning off the knobs of leaky taps. Even when our bai keeps buckets of water to fill, and forget about it, it drives me crazy.

Show Offs: Showing off is a natural human tendency and when done in limit, is tolerable. Also, if someone shows off something they have achieved with their own caliber, I am still tolerate it.
But if someone just keeps showing off and flaunting material things that they have acquired from someone else, it blows off the lid for me. I still act patient with them, but I really want to give it back to them on their face.

Flirt: I have been married for more than 5 years now. And even when I was not, people close to me can swear about my hostility towards people who tried to flirt with me or even compliment me.
But post marriage this hostile behavior of mine towards such morons, has reached new heights

Judgmental: I admit I have been the most judgemental person you could ever imagine a few years ago. And I feel so stupid about myself. But age has made me wiser and I think that is the only good thing about aging. :)  So now, whenever I encounter people who judge people unnecessarily, I cannot tolerate it.

Pretty simple, right?

So, now lets move on to the outfit.
In this outfit too, I am  mixing prints. This time it is stripes and plaids.
And I am loving this combo too much. Also, because in this outfit I have tried recycling my outfit, which does not come naturally to me.
I am wearing my plaid shirt on my high-low dress, which makes it look like a skirt.

Let me know, what you think about the outfit in the comments below.

This is how the dress looks without the shirt.
