X for a lot of stuff from X

Wow. X is one difficult letter. I have been racking my brains since morning on what to write about. I have no set theme for this post, so I shall just babble on about stuff from X. What to do! It is such a difficult letter!
X for xeroxes. My complete college years went smoothly, thanks to the xerox machine. I never really enjoyed going to college. Not like it was bad, or I did not enjoy. But just getting up from my bed, changing into "decent" clothes, catching a rickshaw and then sitting through tedious lectures was a task. So I would never go. I had a "zero" percent attendance in college. (Beat that) But I had two friends in my junior years and man they were studious. They attended each and every lecture, wrote down each and every word that came out of the teacher's mouth and even made their own notes! And the handwriting was great! So the complete two years of college, I did not attend. Instead I would meet them once a month and xerox everything ever written in their books! I am sure by the end of two years they started hating me. 

X for xenon. What is xenon? It is some noble gas. And why am I mentioning it here? Because it starts with X and is related to chemistry. And I hated chemistry. I have no idea how I managed to get through school with all the mad "science" subjects. Mad times.

X for xanthos. It means golden hair. I always wanted to have golden blonde hair. Don't ask why. Even I do not know. I also want red hair. Basically I want a different hair color. I am bored of my hair. 

Okay so I am stopping now. 

Need tea. 

PS- Here is the X doodle. X for the treasure map spot!

"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…

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…
