Month in Rewind: March 2016

It is April already and I just don’t understand how fast this year has been going. And yes it is Summer already. Trying to adjust to the hot weather in Bangalore. People who have been here for long tell me that Bangalore wasn’t this hot before. So what was in store for me in March?
So March was just another month for me. Work wise nothing great is happening. Blogging wise a lot of things happened in March. I was  a part of the launch of the Blog Chatter website. It was so nice to be a part of a launch like that. From the time that I’ve actually concentrated on my blog, the blog chatter sessions have helped me grow as a blogger. Being a part of Blog Chatter’s growth was a happy moment indeed. So after completing 100 continuos days of blogging – or 103 to be precise I took rest for a while. But that rest was temporary. Though I didn’t post many posts in March, I was busy plotting and planning for the A to Z Challenge and the Ultimate Blog Challenge that I am participating this April. Well I can’t stay from writing, not even for a single day. Even when I am not posting anything on the blog, I just keep writing something or the other every day. And talking about the A to Z Challenge, after I had my theme figured out, I made a calendar for myself to plan for posts. But well a lot of things happened in between and I couldn’t stick to it. But I think I will manage. What is the fun of the challenge if everything goes as planned?
One of the good things that happened to me this March was that I participated in Poetry Jam session. I have always been writing my poems on the blog but never have I read it out in public except I think in college when one of my lecturers made to read a poem that I had written for Teacher’s Day and a few poems on the radio. But this was the first time that I was reading it live in front of a bunch of strangers. It was indeed a nice feeling to hear those words out loud. I got good reviews from people who were there.
And after two and half months away from home, I finally visited home during the last week of March. I was there just for 4 days and those 4 days just flew by. But it was wonderful to eat mom cooked food and all the pampering when I go home. And the best part of it was people I barely know coming to me and asking how I’ve been and that they miss me being around in the Church Choir in Hubli. Those moments were indeed so wonderful.
I didn’t read much in March because most of my time is spent in blogging. My another interest these days is walking and now that I am wearing the Mi Fit which I borrowed from my friend for some time, I am walking more. I don’t play Table Tennis now after shifting to the new office. So there has to be something that I have to do to keep myself active. So walking it is for now.
April had already been crazy with blogging and I know that the craziness will continue. Looking forward to the other things that April has in store for me.  So how was March for you?
