Life Update.

Helloo,

It has been three months (for those who were waiting) since I last blogged.
It is not an excuse, but I was actually busy. Masters is no cake walk, I tell you. Especially in Mysuru, where more than studies, there's an insane amount of pressure on your mind, from the people.

So, this will be a short post to tell you all what I've been doing the past three months.
Really though, I did nothing.
Last minute record corrections, tests and assignments, completing my dissertation, and then exams. After which there was the much awaited practical exams and seminar for the dissertation. It was okay. (nobody will believe me if I say that so eff it, but I know how I've done my exams.)

After an intense two month struggle, I had a whole month of vacation, during which I went to the United States.

Screams woohoooo and wakes the sleeping dogs.
Oops they've started howling. lol.



I will tell you the details of my trip in the coming posts, so please wait for it a little more.

My Journey with Journals

Ha ha that rhymes.
My obsession with planners and journalling began during my ninth grade when I came across this book called ‘Get Organised without Losing It’ by Janet S. Fox. It was like a bible (or Bhagavad-Gita you can say) to the little me who wanted to be organised and practical. It is an amazing book that I would recommend to any parent who has a child of 10-12 years of age. (Or a high-schooler. Anything works) In the book, she gives tips to become organised in your school life so that you don’t miss anything and form a habit of completing tasks. She talks about using planners which will help you to (duh) plan your day, week and month and maybe an entire year. That was it. I was completely obsessed with planners and searched every shop I could, for a planner that would suit me. The planner that I had in mind. But, sad to say that there is no such thing here. There are diaries, heavy heavy diaries with no weekly layouts but daily pages which are too short to journal or plan. So I to…

4 Lessons of Life

Helloooooooo,

It's been long!
I know, I know I say I will post frequently and I always do this.

The past month has been a hard one.

I have been having many ups and downs and what not. I mean, what's new huh?

So, I wanted to talk about lessons.....

There are certain lessons life teaches you again and again and again. It just doesn't back down until these lessons are ingrained into your bones. Life's like that, you know. Doesn't back down and does not give two shits.

So here they are -

1.) Punctuality -
This one has slapped me in the face - I don't know how many times! And it's still at it.
Being on time is something I have been learning the hard way. I know it is such an important thing. I know what it is like to keep people waiting, because I have been there too.
But, sometimes shit happens and I do get late. I try my best but..... and that is when it stings. A voice inside starts its daily dose of criticism, saying - aha! you've done it again. You are…

Book Review: AVENGER.

Avenger - To inflict punishment or penalty in return for; to take vengeance on behalf of.
Helloooooo,
How are you today?? Good? Happy? Feeling positive? No?
Then, go drink some positivityyy.....Kidding, please read this post till the end.
Sooo, I am here today to give a book review! *self-applauds* Yes, yes thank you! If you know me, you surely must know that I love books. They are my Bae. My friends are always on stand-by whenever we are near a book store. They are ready to pull me away because I will not leave that spot and stop staring at the books. (Which is not wrong but I’ll be wasting their time too) It is my dream to have my own library.
Anyway, the book I am reviewing is called “Avenger” by Frederick Forsyth. It is not in any way related to the Avengers movie, so get that thought out of your head. It is infinite times better than that. (Also, I really really wanted this book to be the first one I review in my book-review list.)



*sigh* where do I even start? This is one of my favourite boo…

My Answer

Hellloooo,

It's been two weeks!
I gave everything I had for my exams (I could've given more, but, no regrets!) and am really enjoying my short holidays.
I caught up on some Korean Drama which was on rage in the past few days. I was completely immersed... Hmm...
Anyway, a well-deserved rest for the coming semester.

Coming back to my post, this one is where I give you My Answer.
A very long answer with the hows and whys and everything.

From the past three years, I have been asked this question relentlessly. By everyone. Including my parents, brother and my friends and relatives, literally everyone. (Even yesterday.)

"WHY? Why do you listen to 'this' Korean songs? Why do you watch these dramas?"
.
.
.
.
"FOR WHAT JOY?"

First of all, let me thank you for trying so hard to understand. Thank you, thank you for your concern.

Secondly, I feel sorry for those who won't ever understand this feeling.


During my graduate course, I was at a point where I was…

And That's a Wrap!

Helloooooooo,

It has been so long. Soooo long. I know! I messed up my schedule and fell into a downward spiral of utter laziness.

BUT, this won't happen again. I know I keep saying this in my previous posts too, but not this time. Even if it is a small post, I will update it! *Fighting* (This is a Korean way of saying "Do your best", along with clenching your fists *does the action*. It doesn't mean, to literally fight. haha.)

Anyway, it's 2017! A New Year! Another blank 365 days. What will you fill it with?

I still remember my "resolution" for 2016. I couldn't keep that on New Years' Eve itself. So that was that. (please excuse me as I laugh my heart out) And also it was a momentary decision made out of stupidity.

Resolutions have become flaky. People just throw that word around and try their best to follow it.........for about a week. Then, it is back to the usual repetition of the same (boring) lifestyle.

I watch a lot of videos - Robin Shar…
