IV: I Came. I Saw…Fireworks!

Tuesday, September 20th I have never been a big fan of fireworks, which I know is something humanity isn’t used to (everyone loves fireworks, I know). Well, they’re cool and all but *counts on fingers*, they’re too loud, too fire-y and if you’re not in a place where you can see them but still hear…

III: I Came. I Saw…The Nightmare Before Christmas

Sunday, July 10th…The highway, around 10:50 PM The moon was so clear from my front seat on the bus…a bit brownish, almost a half moon. I don’t know why but the first thing that came to my mind as I laid eyes on that magnificent thing was The Nightmare Before Christmas. I could only imagine…

II: I Came. I Saw..The First Signs of Fall

Friday, September 16th I look around, and I see all those signs that Fall is just around the corner; the warm September evening breeze, cloudy afternoons, that smell in the air, stores putting Winter/Fall clothes on display, Passenger’s new album coming up, people shopping for school supplies…even people catching the interseasonal cold; the hoarseness in…

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…
