I: I Came. I Saw…Mug Clicking

I am at this new Starbucks (I just had to give it a go), and for the first time in all my long years of hanging out at coffee places, I get conscious of that clicking sound that comes out of jostling ceramic mugs and plates. I don’t know but that sound made me automatically…

Another Bemused Semi-mischievous Endeavor!

Two things I have learnt about myself after almost five years of blogging; I have a soft spot for fresh starts, and I don’t mind cliché’s…at all! As my 25th birthday approached, I knew it was about time I ended the Quarter 0f an Earthly Century project. And it didn’t feel good, to be honest,…

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…
