The Living Alone Diaries – Of late sunsets, cooking for one and discovering new places

The Living Alone Diaries – Of late sunsets, cooking for one and discovering new places

A lot of things have changed for me in the last few days – living in a different country far away from loved ones, struggling to find a semblance of a routine and most importantly trying to wrap my head around the fact that it is still bright at 9 pm. Like I said, a lot has changed! Amidst all the chaos of living alone, […]

Wordle and all that drama!

Wordle and all that drama!

It started at the beginning of this year. Whenever I’d open Twitter, I’d see a set of yellow, green, and black squares. It was the Wordle craze. Brushing it away as just another trend, I decided to ignore it. But day after day, I’d see more people post about it. Since I have enjoyed playing Word games, I decided to try it once and then […]

Plans, Morning routine and things not going my way

Plans, Morning routine and things not going my way

Hello February! I like the beginnings – I like New Year and I like the beginnings of months. Keeping aside my hatred of Mondays for they mark the end of the weekend; I like Mondays because they mark the start of something. There is something about beginnings that motivates me to do something new or to do something better or be better or to start […]

Finding joy learning and creating

Finding joy learning and creating

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.

On languishing, writing and perhaps creating a morning routine

On languishing, writing and perhaps creating a morning routine

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 […]

Why is it important to take a break and why you should take one

Why is it important to take a break and why you should take one

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, […]

That was Summer

That was Summer

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 […]

Looking back and looking forward #MondayMusings #WOTY

Looking back and looking forward #MondayMusings #WOTY

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 […]

The gift of time #WordsMatter

The gift of time #WordsMatter

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 […]

Can I hit reset? #WordsMatter

Can I hit reset? #WordsMatter

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 […]
