Creating something and then learning something in the process or even the other way around- learning something and then doing something to put that learning into practice is what brings me joy. Though I make a to-do list of all the things that I have to do, ticking all the tasks off doesn’t bring me as much joy as creating something does.
I have a zillion things running in my mind, yet when it comes to writing something down words evade me. I am staring at the blank screen wondering what to write. Of late I haven’t written much on the blog- by that I mean posts that aren’t my reading wrap ups. My creative muscles seem to be taking a really long rest. Or I’m not […]
2020 definitely isn’t the year we wanted it to be. On New Year’s Day, when we made plans for the year, I don’t think most of us would have considered spending almost half the year or even more locked up in our houses. Forget all those trips that I wanted to go on, I’ve barely stepped out of my house unless absolutely necessary. But yes, […]
I have always been mesmerized by the change of seasons. The sunshine, the rain and almost non-existent winter in between. Each season brings with it its own memories. For me, summers brings about a sense of nostalgia like no other! The exams, the vacation, the mangoes, the games, the books, the rain – all of it brings about a yearning for that time that now […]
The last Monday of the year is upon us. 2019 is almost over and I can’t believe that yet. I know we keep telling that each year, but somehow I felt that this year went by in a rush and I’m still trying to process all that happened this year. There were highs and lows, but what matters the most is what I had to […]
December is here and that means it is a time for celebrations, of giving and sharing. And there is so much to do because Christmas is almost here. I can’t believe that this year is almost over- this year that brought along a lot of changes in my life is almost over. While I begin to think about it all, if there is one gift […]
20 years ago, I wanted to be so many things, but now, I’d rather be just me. As a kid, I’d never stopped dreaming. There were so many things that I wanted to be and there were so many things that I wanted to do. If someone asked me what I wanted to be, I always had an answer though a different one. It would […]
When it rains, I’m reminded of all these memories that make me smile and sometimes also bring that occasional tear.
The gloomy weather as well as the tiredness of my journey last night makes me want to go to sleep. I tell myself that I deserve to sleep for it has been a while since I last took a day off without having to go somewhere or without falling sick. Today is just one of those days where I don’t have to rush somewhere or […]
I woke up with a start as I realized that I went back to sleep again after the alarm had gone off. Worried that I’d be late, I hurried and got out of my bed. I craved for the rays of the morning sun to wake me up and the fresh morning breeze to make me feel more alive. But that seemed to have become […]
