Of The Finale…or the “I Ching”!

It’s been exactly 37 days since I became officially a quarter century old. This year, my birthday happened to fall on a Saturday…a weekend birthday, yaaay, let’s blast it, right? Well, no! I spent my 25th as normally as an average Tuesday (not even a Saturday), and you know what? It wasn’t sad at all…I…

#20: Of The Missed School Trip

One of the most interesting things about being an adult is that you get to face a lot of crossroads…you get to be a constant visitor, rather a resident, of that place where it all comes down to the choice you make. And the even more interesting thing is, sometimes you aren’t even aware that…

#19: Of the A-student Syndrome

All my life I have been nothing but a straight-A student. I was good at each and every subject out there…Math, Science, English, you just name it. And I truly did love studying. I enjoyed the whole learning process despite the fact everyone at school cared about nothing but grades (and sadly that is still…

#18: Of La Vita That Is Molto Bella

About 3 months ago, I watched La Vita E Bella for the first time…and I cried. With the opening credits, the music had touched my soul in a way that only a genius twist of chords can do; it literally shone with positivity. And here is the even more genius thing, this music, those innate…

#16: Of Someone Else’s Life/ The Girl in the Mirror

If you happen to know Michael Buble’s song, “Home”, there’s that line where he says: “And I feel just like I’m living someone else’s life. It’s like I just stepped outside when everything was going right.”   I was listening to that song on my way home yesterday and just as I came across that…

#15: Of Planet Earth, and How It Turns

One of my favorite lyric lines ever is from Owl City’s Fireflies…it goes like: “I like to make myself believe…that planet Earth turns slowly.”   But here’s the ugly truth, planet Earth doesn’t turn slowly; as a matter of fact, time flies at a supersonic speed. And ironically enough, I only came to realize it,…

#14: Of the Awful Land of Frustration

Today I realized it’s been more than two months since I last wrote anything. Such realization got me literally freaking out; I mean, how on Earth do I consider myself a “writer wannabe” when I let two months pass without writing a single word? So, in attempt to sort my fear out, I tried to…

#13: Of The Question

Have you ever wondered if there’s someone out there with whom you should switch lives, like there’s someone whose dreams are everything you have & theirs are everything you’ve ever dreamt about? For the past weeks, I’ve been having this insane question persistently nagging me every minute of every day and now it’s almost everything…

#12: Of Time

I’ve been trying to kickoff this one for almost a week now; I tried all those different intros, and they were all as bad as the worst thing you’ve ever read(which is probably what you’re reading now). Even now, at 12:45 am on a school night, the thing that means I’m supposed to wake up…

#11: Of Hope, And Losing Hope

One of the things that define the person I am is that I consider myself a solid How I Met My Mother fan. There’s almost nothing in life that I can’t; that I don’t, relate to How I Met Your Mother. Whenever I’m sad, upset or frustrated, it’s where I find refuge. I have a…

#10: Of The Chords That Had My Back

Whenever I embark on something new; new job, new project, new school, new adventure or trip, the first thing that comes to my mind  (and sometimes keeps me sleepless for days) is what the people I’m gonna meet will be like. For a lot of people, people are never an issue; they just hit the…
