Time to change (at least for now)....

Well generally my writing is very limited and always stuck to dark and depressing stories, but suddenly at 1:18 am I feel that I could embrace a change. My blog shall now also have few bright stories and will be hopefully a bit more personal. Talking about personal, my life has become a total weird slump. I keep cribbing and worrying about things not changing or life not moving fast enough, but actually life is changing all the time, I just couldn't see the so called changes.

For the past few days I was just complaining about my life, but thankfully today I finally realized that it wasn't a slump after all. Life is actually good. I am somewhat figuring what my path is and what my goals are. I want to be a footwear designer, there, i said it! Hopefully I stick to it. Even though I didn't want to work, I got a good market research job offer that I can comfortably sit at home and do. I get paid for it too!! (wasn't expected)

College life is going pretty ok, I have made new friends, I attend some lectures and at least go to college thrice a week which is an achievement for a girl who wouldn't go for months at a stretch. A lot of family functions are going to come, as usual I was cribbing, but now that I think about it, its actually going to be fun and I am going to be shopping!!

So finally I am glad that I introspected and realized I was being pathetic and petty. Its time I take life as it comes and appreciate it and most importantly get a grip on myself. Anyway this is what I feel right now, hope its not a phase! Lets see how I am doing few days later. Here comes an end to my monologue, which I know is actually juvenile in a way, but my blog had been dead for ages and it was high time to update it with my silly words. Bye for now.

Of Modi's and mints...

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Because Mommy hates my eyebrows......

I hate this weather. It's all wet and weird. I am so surprised at myself for nearly finishing my commissions for September. Alongside I even managed to watch two movies. I had decided to watch them only on the completion of my work as a "treat", but well I just cannot say no to a movie night with K. Actually I cannot say no to anyone when it comes to watching a movie. So I ended up watching Freaky Ali which sucked. And Pink which did not suck at all. What a movie!

I called the "Mother" to discuss Pink and the seriousness it showcased about the way women are judged in the Indian society. After ranting for a couple of minutes about how we are perceived and shackled with responsibilities and judgements, she replies -
 "Have you done your eyebrows?"

Now my eyebrows are currently a crisis for my Mother. The fact that her daughter has disregarded the importance of physical maintenance is shocking for her. Since I have been piled this month with maddening w…

To the 2016 that was and a 2017 that will be...

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
