It’s Sweet and Blissful

We’re driving towards my native place in Karnataka and dad’s saying something to my brother about where to stop for petrol… I try to pay attention, but can’t I realise I don’t have to worry about it. My eyes are doing that slow-mo opening and closing thing, and I’m falling asleep I can feel morning…

Lifeless

Have you ever felt this? Like nothing is INTERESTING anymore. Nothing is worth thinking about Or no goal is worth working hard towards Like you’re just not happy about the place you are in And hey, if you’re not happy, atleast take an effort to get somewhere else, right? But you’re not even interested in…

Diary Entry #1

So here’s the thing, dear dairy. I’m battling with a lot of things right now. I’ve got nothing to do for most parts of the day. And there ARE things that I should be doing. But I just keep procrastinating. Everyday I think about how having a boyfriend would have been great. Then there’s this…

What Routine Looks Like

Today was a pretty normal day. I got up at 9, realised it was still not 10, which is my normal waking up time, and went to sleep again. Got up exactly at 9.45, realised I couldn’t sleep any longer and finally hopped out of bed. Read newspaper while having milk and Horlicks. Oh, before…

Sad, but only a Little.

Have you ever felt sad and a little lonely, for no apparent reason? Like, there are people around you. Plenty of them. Some even care. But you just can’t shake off that feeling of loneliness. You just can’t. You try. You try to mingle with different people. You try to smile at their jokes. Laugh,…

The Little Voice

Is it just me, or do you also sometimes feel like saying to the little voice in your head that keeps irritating you with a numerous dialogues, many opinions and so many judgements to just shut the HELL up!

Something About a Boat

Why do we look for other’s approval? Why aren’t we ever comfortable in our skin? Why does a slightest disapproval from someone shake the stable boat you’re sailing in? A small wind shouldn’t be able to send tremors through a boat. But it does. Why is that? Are we all just that vulnerable? Everything that…

My Graduation Ceremony

So, about today. It was the best day ever. Thank you God. Thank you so very much. Two things happened. I passed MA sem one examination (which shouldn’t be such a big deal, but it somehow is). And two, we were made to feel so special by the college. All of my classmates weren’t present….

I’m Sort of Bummed

I’m feeling lonely for some reason. I have no one to talk to. No one to hang out with, after college. No work life (because taking a job while still studying can get hectic). And even though I go to college, I’ve not got a college life. Apart from college, there are a couple of…

I Just Remembered Something

My nani (grandma) used to say this a lot when my brother and I were around two or three years old and at that time we couldn’t understand what she was saying. Later, when I grew up a little and pondered on it, I finally understood what she meant. And I’m glad that I’ve been…

Some Random Facts about Today

So today I’d worn a saree. Almost everyone who saw me in the function complimented me. It felt so nice (obviously). It was also such a confidence booster as I’ve had body image issue for quite some time now (nothing major, just a slight dissatisfaction with how I look sometimes). I met everyone, talked and…

How Much is Too Much?

Working hard is good. It gives you a purpose, a direction, a reason to live and a hope towards a better future. But stress? Bad. Thinking about work all day? Bad. Best thing – Work hard. But don’t take tension. Be chill. Important thing: don’t over do it. Life is too big, and these small…
