I have college in a bit, and I haven't written a general update for a while now so thought I would quickly put something up. My last week has been kind off hectic, with my board exams going on and Mom leaving for a vipassana center, plus Dad being in Delhi. So there's been a lot going on with handling the house and three tough back to back papers. Finally however I am done, with just practicals left which is not that much of a pain.

My papers were ok-ish I guess, would have done better if I had actually studied, but being me, I had left everything literally to the very last minute. Nevertheless 10% is your hard-work  and 90% is your paper corrector, that holds the threads to your future. This rule strictly applies tho those related to Mumbai University. So I am just going to pray that my paper corrector is in a happy place, well fed and in a super mood. :) *fingers crossed*

Anyways, I have been chilling since yesterday and I saw some really good movies. I watched Game of Thrones Season 3, the latest episodes, which were ok, don't know why people go so crazy over it, but still they were good. Three hours passed off in that, after which I loaded The Host. Now that's a really nice movie, based on Stephanie Meyer's novel. Its a bit less "gay" than Twilight. The movie was well shown, but the end was lame, which is what is happening to most movies these days.

Then I watched The Perks of being a Wallflower. Very nice movie. I love the story, the way it is handled, the subtle psychology, the issues, basically everything about the movie. When life is going good on the personal and movie front, sadly I can say it is not so good on the food front. For some reason, which I fail to diagnose, I am just not hungry. I survived the whole day yesterday on two cups of tea and little pulav. Maybe I need Mcds, or some junk.

I miss R. She has exams and next 8 days shes not here. Mom is not here. Dad is not here. Karan is never here. Thank God for T and G, that I am still going on with a huge smile plastered to my face.

So that's all I have to say. Will leave for college in a while, and now I am suddenly hungry! So going to eat......



  1. If you are a fan of dark humor and sarcasm, try watching House M.D., the guy in it has championed sarcastic humor plus may help you in general with psychiatry as the problem solving techniques used by him are intriguing.

  2. yea. I have heard bout it, seen couple of episodes. :)

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…
