Hi all, hope you enjoyed your weekend as for me I got Covid booster dose and was bed ridden for a day so yeah it wasn’t so good but don’t worry it’s all good now and please don’t be scared to take your booster dose cos of this, mine is due to some of my medical conditions. Anyway, coming to the point I’ll tell you a story today of what went down exactly 10 mins before my book launch.
One thing you should know about me is that I am very time punctual, I hate making other’s wait for me and I always have to be on time no matter what; even that day I was all set, the lights, decors all done a day before. About 20 mins before I called up all my friends the one’s who weren’t there, I was on full panic mode, they must’ve been so much annoyed. 😂 I was literally shouting at them one by one, where are you, why aren’t you still here, etc.. 10 mins before the launch my friend Lynda told me you can go and sit down now it’s almost time(I would’ve been there 20mins or even an hour before if they didn’t stop me 🤣), so I went there then I turned on the switch for the backdrop lights and it wasn’t working at all. My whole face was turning red, I changed the extension cords but all of them betrayed me that day and turns out even the light itself was playing with me the whole time, mom told me lights went on and off the whole time which by the way was the reason for my internet being down that day. I was anxious, nervous and so frustrated the same time, I even shouted at my friends I think and I apologies for that. When I finally sat down for my book launch as I said earlier lights weren’t on my side that day, I couldn’t get a proper connection for quite a while and we were all looking at it as shown in the picture above. Through the whole launch and interview I was so awkwardly laughing as I was already tensed from before, it is my very first interview as an author, my job interview was much easier I only had to answer some few questions on a particular topic or test we studied. 🤣
Just after the launch was over the lights of the back drop decides to start working, just imagine the level of my frustration, I felt like rewinning the whole thing. 😂
Over all it was quite an emotional experience and I am so thankful for my production house The Little Hubooktique for placing their trust in me, special thanks to Rohit Bhatia and Promita Dey for their constant support, they truly are the best ones to work with, they’ve guided me throughout my journey. 💞
