For the love of Rewards,

Dear Diary,

It's been a while since I last wrote for Two Shoes Tuesday. As I found myself with some free time I decided to take up this week's Two ShoesTuesday prompt. I chose REWARD.

As kids, rewards have a lot of value in our lives. I remember my mum telling me, If I study diligently and pass my exams with good marks, my reward would be a Mcdonald's Happy Meal. The toy was of more interest to me than the meal in itself.

I believe rewards are an excellent way to motivate people to do something. It's a form of acknowledgement but when rewards become the sole purpose for a task the problem starts arising. 

Rewards do not necessarily have to be monetary or materialistic, the satisfaction that comes at accomplishing a task can be rewarding too, the joy of watching happiness on another person's face because of something you do is rewarding in itself and cannot be equated with money or gifts. A good remark at the end of an essay is a reward.

For me,

The Sunday Visitor.

May & June

Dear Diary,

Sorry for such a long gap, I was very occupied these past two months. I have been upto a lot of things. I managed to complete the challenge I was participating in. I read 24 books even before the year got over :)

I aced my Spanish Exam with 86% unfortunately I'm not doing another level as Spanish is really close to French and in all likelihood I will mix them both and invent a new language Spench or Franish :)

Here's what I have been doing and what I did :

I started reading a book in French 

I celebrated one of my closest friend's birthday.
Gang of Girls!

The last day of My French Class.

I won a Twitter Contest held by a fashion blogger and a dear friend.
Everyone needs to be pampered for a change!

I spent a week surrounded by the hills in a hill station

The Hills are alive!

The view from the building.

I also started a blog in French so do check it out Le Journal D'un Francophile

Gotta run,

The Sunday Visitor.
