Two thousand and ate-teen!

2018 has been a very weird year for me. It’s like god thought this girl needs to be prepared for the rest of her life. And Bam! He made a plan, a blueprint for the year of two thousand and eighteen! At times it seemed like my life couldn't be more perfect and at others, it was like someone charged me 5 dollars to show me my worst nightmare. And they closed the doors so you couldn’t leave. With social media, you can never leave. It like the lyrics of Hotel California, you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave! This year has been a real eye-opener for me. In terms of who I am, where I want my life to go, who are my friends (no strings attached), what are the things I need to be doing in life and so on. It has started the process of me setting my priorities straight in life. And for once and finally putting myself before anyone else. I am very good at standing up for others, but I’m finally learning to stand up for myself. It just the beginning, I have a lot o

Another thing!

You know I have always felt that the friends you make at different stages in your life, will stay with you forever. Your school friends, or the people you meet in college, your friends from your first job. Well that is where I have reached, so can't say about things beyond that. But yeah you carry them with you wherever you go in life. Another thing. We keep changing, always. Everyday. I wasn't the same person I was two years ago. Hell, I am not the same person I was 6 months ago. We always keep changing, our opinions, beliefs, likes dislikes. We keep evolving. Every phase in your life changes you. You meet new people, get exposed to different things and you change, as simple as that. For someone else to complement that change and grow with you in a similar manner or to even understand those changes is not an easy thing. We ourselves don't know who we are, how can a third person. I mean it is not impossible. I have friends in my life from back when all I could think abou

My Madcap Mid-work Musings!

I occasionally sit at my work desk, staring into space, deep in thought. My co-workers must be thinking I am working on a complex problem. Little do they know, more often than not I am thinking about some irrelevant to work thing and will soon be posting a blog about to bore you people with. My madcap mid-work musing. On today's episode, we are going to talk about familiarity! Nope, this isn't about "Familiarity breeds contempt"! (I could do a mean podcast!) Why are we so resistant to change? Why do we get upset whenever there is an imbalance in our universe? We get used to things a certain way and that routine or familiarity is something we can identify and count on. It is comfortable. You have just everything right. Your job, friends, family, boyfriend, weekends, late nights, hair salon, street pups, everything. We like familiarity, for things to be a certain way. I mean for almost 12 years of our lives, we have gone and come back to school at fairly the same tim

The weird girl and the sea.

I recently read in a book called "The Trust" that if it is love at first sight, you should run in the other direction, as fast as you can. But that is not true in my case of falling in love with Goa! Goa has a piece of my heart. You must be thinking hmm Goa is a pretty good place! The beach, cheap booze, extreme chill, I get it how one could want to go there but love? Isn't that a bit too much? Well, let me give you guys some context. For me, Goa is my second home. It is where I have spent four wonderful, blissful and adventurous years. I did my engineering from BITS Pilani Goa and over the course of those four years, I fell in love with the place. The brightly colored houses, the air which almost smells like the ocean and even the incessant rains. For the world it might be a place to chill, party, get drunk and basically have a blast, for me its home. It would be safe to assume I have a Horcrux hidden somewhere in Goa. I know Goa so pretty well, and it knows me t
