Pros & Cons of a Sabbatical

with 10 comments

I’m excited. Its ben ages since I have made plans and been able to follow through with them.

I’m making plans of meeting a friend who’s in India for a month; spending time with my parents; of re-learning driving; of trying out the various recipes I have been wanting to try; of maybe picking up the guitar again; going on a weekend trip with friends. These are the upside of taking a sabbatical.

The downside of taking a sabbatical is NO SHOPPING. The sales are on everywhere and I need to be careful with the money and not shop. Understandably so. I saw this amazing silk blend formal jumpsuit yesterday at a 40% markdown. In merawala pink, AND I COULDN’T BUY IT. As in I could have but I DIDN’T BUY IT. Kindly appreciate. The Hujband didn’t understand what the fuss was all about 😥

Another downside is me having to return the faithful Blackberry to the office and having to buy a sasta, sundar Samsung Corby 😦

  1. jumpsuit? 40% discount? where where?
    You won’t shop and Paroma doesn’t like shopping. I think we should stick to daaru when we meet. That the three of us have in common, right?:P

  3. Awww… you should have gone for the merawala pink suit.. really… money will come and money will go, but the gratification one gets from ‘shopping’ should never be forgone 🙂 Enjoy your sabbatical. And don’t think too much about what you want to do next, or it would spoil the thrill of ‘holidaying’ 🙂

  4. Totally agree… this is the only downside to the sabbatical. But, just stay clear of the sale areas and we are happy and high 🙂

    Enjoy the break!
