The time for women has arrived. Every woman is able to speak for herself. And that's fantastic. Feminism has finally come through.

But Feminism is one thing...and being extreme is another. I recently read an article that gave me mixed feelings. In summary, it spoke about various Indian (or Hindu) marriage traditions and how they affect women negatively, such as the Kashi Yatra, a ritual in South Indian weddings, where the groom"goes away" to learn more and the bride's parents have to ask him to stay. The author questions, why can't the bride go away?

Now, I'm not one who is well versed in Indian wedding rituals and neither have I witnessed many Indian weddings to comment on all this. But I found many of the arguments in this article a bit too extreme...I mean, these are all old traditions that have been in practice for years. And we all know that in the past, there was the repression of women. But today, we choose to follow these traditions in marriages. But we don't have to.

Taking on traditions from the past and bringing them up in a current era where they hold no meaning towards women and their repression is something, I personally think, is stupid (sorry, I generally don't blatantly comment on other people's work, but this one really was silly). Furthermore, I don't see the need to constantly remark on the idea of feminism. Yes, there are many places where women are still repressed...but I think we've come a long way since 2013. There are so many NGOs, celebrities and even regular people who help towards women empowerment. We have reached an era where women empowerment or gender equality is not a major issue in many communities. I do agree that it has not been completely eradicated.

Writing articles on rituals that have been in practice for a long time, that don't even matter today is pointless. It's important to focus on real issues - child marriage, rape, women abuse...

And if this still does not convince you, get a court marriage done. But don't criticize your own (or other's) traditions and rituals. The actions of it do not matter anymore. Many rituals die out after sometime. No one is asking you to bow down and follow them. You can choose to do so or not. And on that note, Mom and Dad, you are most definitely invited to my wedding. I want you to see me go through all these traditions and laugh through them as we do so. Because they're just rituals...and after the wedding, it shall all go back to normal...because I will be a working woman...something that was not so common eras ago.

Updates + Realizations

So I know it's been a while...this is what an intensive Masters course does to one. They have no time to do anything. Okay I lie. It's writers' block. Okay I lie again. It really is time. And lack of anything to write about...so writers' block? Meh.

Anyway. Life has been weird lately. Mainly because I actually have a routine. Like I said. Masters student life. I actually sleep on time and wake up on time, cook, work, workout...time management has become my superpower.

A week back, a good friend of mine and I had a conversation about life in general and where it's heading...and why. That conversation made me self reflect more than I should have...which I am thankful for. It's because of that I now have the superpower of time management. No really.

This made me reflect further...sometimes you meet people, and you don't know when, how or where they will have an impact on your life. But they will. Be it a huge impact or something minute...they always will leave you with something...thoughts, memories, advice, memoirs...anything.

They say family sticks with you no matter what, which is very true. But if you can find a friend that can do that too, consider yourself lucky...because you just added one more member to the family...:)

If I had to show you an A4 sheet of paper with a black dot on it, you'd notice the black dot first, yes? It's human nature. You're drawn to it. The whole sheet of paper is white, but you'll (or we'll) only see the black dot.

That's how we see people as well from time to time. We notice their "flaws" per say...or something that stands out (could be). Taking on this perspective, we could assume that flaws are not necessarily flaws. As one person may think talking too much is a nuisance, another may think, "wow...they can talk about anything to anyone", therefore admiring your socialising skills.

I may just be rambling on about some small topic that I introspect about now and then. But the point of this is, give people a chance. A first impression does not always count. People are flawed, we all are...but these flaws work in our favour as we would not be who we are if we didn't have these flaws. Yes? Yes.

The black dot on the A4 sheet of paper could be the starting point of a whole new pattern. Don't let it scare you. :)

Happy Friday!

10 things 'Finding Fanny' taught me.

[SPOILERS]...sort of...

I went for Finding Fanny a few days back. I also went for the English version...for reasons that only few people know. I understand it better than Hindi. The movie on a whole was enjoyable. We rarely get Hindi movies that portray dark humour. This was a good watch especially for those who appreciate brilliant acting.

Here's a list of things that the movie taught me:

1. When proposing to your love, please do it in person. Not via a letter. Unless you're delivering.
2. Love can be right under your nose and you wouldn't know.
3. Move on. If you can't let go, how will you see what's right under your nose?
4. When you fire a gun, make sure no one is dead. Unless it was intentional :/
5. Artists are full of emotions...but sometimes they can be heartless too.
6. When you get the chance to tell someone you love them, tell them. Regret can be with you lifelong.
7. Bollywood movies can be nice even without music numbers.
8. Helping those you don't want to help can lead to you discovering something wonderful.
9. Be responsible for your own pets.
10. When you want to cry, cry without caring.

Catch the trailer of the movie! :)

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge: but why bro?

What is ALS? "Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and in the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death." For more information, click here.

Now that we know what ALS is, I shall rant about the viral challenge of pouring ice water over oneself.

I was against it at a certain point in time too. Exhibit A:

Shameless follow request here :D
Following the tweet, I observed and watched many challenges. There were a few that gave me quite the impression, such as Sonu Nigam, who actually took the effort to explain what ALS means in his own words. This got me thinking...there's so much hype about this challenge. When people do it, we don't know if they are donating money or not. But the famous folks surely must be.

According to the ALS website, the challenge has raised more than $41.8 million. So why are we complaining? The objective of the challenge has sort of been accomplished. There is enough money for research on the ALS to be carried out. So why the hate peeps?!

Sure, some people talk about how we're wasting water, and we should think about not doing so and just donate. But the fact that people have been pouring water over themselves (and going viral) is what made other people actually aware of the ALS. I wouldn't know what it is otherwise, frankly speaking.

I really don't know how to end this article...so...umm...yeah.

Oh yes! If you don't want to do the challenge, it's fine! Don't. I'm not gonna do it. But please, don't comment on others who are. You're doing your bit, and they're doing theirs. Not everything in the world is correct or moral. There are far worse things we can sit and complain about. But we choose not to. So let's choose the same with this and just umm...chill? (See what I did there? :D )

Don't hate. Appreciate. :-)

Dear Stranger, Happy Birthday! Sincerely, Stranger.

Dear Stranger,

Today, you reminded me of the days when humanity, kindness, friendship and love were most important. You may not have realised the impact of your small act, but it made me realise that in today's world, we hardly give importance to the things that really matter. For this, I sincerely thank you.


To my readers,

My friend and I were sitting in front of Forum Mall (Bangalore), and just talking about random stuff. You know how it is when you catch up with friends.

While doing so, we observed a group of boys in front of us. They were hiding a cake, which had a number of candles on them. Another group of boys were bringing in the birthday boy, covering his eyes. They brought him towards the cake, then revealed the surprise. The expression on the birthday boy's face was one I will never forget. The genuine happiness and joy on his face is one that is rarely to be seen.

What moved me in this act of friendship was when the cake was cut and distributed, the boys also distributed the cake to the people around.

This kind of attitude in today's world is rarely found. I would like to thank these boys, not for the cake, but for putting a smile on my face and making me take part in their circle of happiness. This took me back to the days when I was a kid and I would distribute chocolates all around the school, to people I knew and to people I didn't know, just because I wanted them to take part in my happiness.

Sometimes, it's best to keep things simple. Simplicity is what brings happiness. Today's incident was one I will always remember and cherish. Once again, Happy Birthday Jagdish! :-)

They shared their cake!

The Curse of Memories

Okay. So. It's been long. But it's been a hectic month. Doing the CELTA course is no joke. They told us at the beginning of the course, "Forget everything in your life. This is your life for the next four weeks." And boy were they not kidding. Whew!

It's all over and now we can breathe. We've got a great qualification in hand, made some amazing friends and even made plans for the future...meeting up, careers...and so on.

These memories are great. You meet someone and know them at a sort of...semi personal level? You don't exchange much on the side of problems, feelings or personal matters. It's more about the jokes,  mutual feelings about the same experiences and perhaps sharing a meal or two.

The curse of memories are those you share with someone who is closest to you...a best friend, perhaps even family...the memories are great when you guys are still together. Don't get me wrong.

It's when they leave that the memories  become a curse. Small things like dates...today is 2nd August?  Well it was until you remembered that it is his birthday too.

Your colleague orders a mocha coffee? Oh. My best...um...former best friend used to order that.

Even minute things like songs, movies, tv shows, books...They appear in your day to day life and disrupt your thoughts. Sigh.

It could be a curse of memories...or just some thoughts that will always be with you, no matter what. It's up to us as to whether we embrace and accept them...Or try to suppress them.

I have not blogged in a month. I am sorry (this is me apologising to the more responsible me).

Having said all that, the excuse is as it always has been, exams and travel! On the bright side, I am graduating in exactly two weeks! So...that break was really worth it (not).

Today's post is more of an...epiphany. Can you imagine what our lives would be like if we didn't meet certain people, or do certain things? I mean...where would we be? Would life be better? Or worse?

It's quite profound, I agree. But it's brain wrecking. The whole point is to imagine.

But all in all, many people in our lives impact the way we are. It's like a post in Humans of New York discussed, stating that the eyes do not see. They merely interpret. It's the brain that sees. What we see depends on our experiences, people we've met, our understandings and so on.

There's always a thin line between seeing, looking and perceiving.

And I always believe in perception.

A few weeks back, my friends and I were discussing the concept of a selife. What is a selfie? In simple terms, it's when one takes a picture of himself by clicking at the time; no timer, no anything..or at least that's my understanding.

However, we were looking at it from a different point of view. Do we take selifes because we are lonely? I mean, think about it...you're taking a perfect picture of yourself, just so that the other people (who look at the selfie) can appreciate it...unless of course you do not upload it on a social network...in which case...you just take selfies, for fun? I dunno.

On the other hand, maybe selfies help you increase your self confidence? I mean, you keep clicking pictures of yourself until you click the perfect one, where everything is flawless. That increases your self confidence, because for once, your mirror and the camera reached an agreement. However, there are also a variety of selifies...like "ugly selfies" and "tape selfies"...but let's not go there.

It's all a technology dominant world. Let's try and bring back the days of film roll cameras...where a picture was actually worth a thousand words...and not a loss of thousand words, like today. With that, I shall end with The Chainsmoker's parody on "selfies". Enjoy!

Blind Faith

Blind faith is a controversial topic. It involves the one thing that unites, yet breaks groups: Religion. Thankfully, that's not the focal of this post.

Many people believe in God. And even if they don't, they probably do when certain things are needed. Like passing exams. Or the mere expression, "Oh My God!"...oh I'm sorry. "OMG!" Although, that's not faith. It's just...an expression.

But why do people question the faith? "You can't see God! How do you know he exists?" Well dude, I can't see your brain. How do I know that it exists?! Pfft. (Okay fine the brain has been scientifically proven to exist and blah blah...but I didn't see his. Therefore he doesn't have one. If he can have that theory, so can I).

Moving on...blind faith works in mysterious ways. For example...when we fall in love, we'd do anything for the other person. Without second thoughts. It's quite stupid. We also do the same for friends...we do stupid things together.

As many people would see it all as a negative...I think it's good to have blind faith. If I didn't have blind faith in God, I'd have no one to make deals with. I'd probably actually gamble and lose money. If I didn't have blind faith in love, I'd not trust my family. If I didn't have blind faith in friendship, I'd not have the memories of those stupid moments, that now lead me to nostalgic thoughts.

Ergo, don't question faiths. Or I'll question your existence.

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
There's always a bunch of (Indian) people who claim, "I don't watch Bollywood movies because they are not artistic..." or "Because it's too much drama..." or "Too many songs!" and so on. I have a few things to say to you:

1. LET BOLLYWOOD BE! Man! It's called Bollywood for a reason. Not everyone is interested in working all day, and when it comes to leisure, using their minds to understand a complicated plot of some movie, and having to pay for it too! Sometimes, all the Indian audience appreciates is a little bit of humour, a few good songs and one or two dramatic scenes (coz what's life without drama?)

2. Quit comparing Bollywood with Hollywood. They are two different industries. Sure they both make movies. But the audiences are different. Furthermore, if Bollywood tries to stick to Hollywood's norms, Bollywood would lose it's identity and soul.

3. I do understand that there are quite a few movies that are...er...too much. In order to save me some writing space, watch some review videos by Kanan Gill. You shall understand:

Having established all that, I will give you a list of what I think are good Bollywood movies. And if you still aren't sure, you can always read online reviews.

A list of what I think are good Bollywood movies (in no specific order):

1. Wake Up Sid!
2. Gangs of Wasseypur
3. Udaan
4. English Vinglish
5. Iqbal
6. Rang De Basanti 
7. Swades
8. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
9. Taare Zameen Par
10. Lootera

If you have anymore to add to the list, please comment below.

"We Are Entitled To Our Own Opinions"

In today's world, every argument ends the same, "We're entitled to our own opinions" or "That's your perspective!" and that's the end of that.

However, in certain aspects (take note that only in certain aspects and not all), does that barely matter. I believe that due to social networking, globalisation and well, technology in general, all our views are moulded into one. Everyone reads something online and everyone believes it.

We always complain about "that one idiot" who says something against what is posted, and we think his view is irrational or doesn't make sense. But you know what? He was man enough to post his opinion online. Many of us do not post our views online in fear of judgement from people, who follow the "social norms".

Of course, this isn't true for everyone. I'm just posting a thought. You're entitled to your own opinion.

New York, New York!

New York, New York
New York...a city of dreams. Sounds like something Fitzgerald would say. Actually, something he would precisely say: "The city seen from the Queensboro Bridge is always the city seen for the first time, in it's first wild promise of all the mystery and beauty in the world." - F. Scott Fitzgerald on New York City.

New York City is a place that you would like to give time and patience to explore. There's just so much to do and so much to see. Taking a tour bus would be ideal if you are staying a short while. But if you have the time (and energy), I suggest you just walk most of the city and make use of the trains. Walking would be the best option as you'd see a lot!

There's lots to do in New York City. There's the mainstream tourism - The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Photography Museum, Times Square, Broadway, Empire State, Freedom Tower, Central Park, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Wall St and many more things. However, here's a list of things that I personally enjoyed:

1. The Photography Museum: is conveniently located at 43rd street, busy ends. It looks pretty small, and it is. But it has millions worth of information. The photographs clicked are beyond amazing. There are creative displays such as tiny photographs made to look like windows of buildings. The place does not allow you to click photographs, but that's alright! Who wants to create art by clicking pictures of other art? Art is for appreciation.

The museum is under the International Center of Photography, so if you are interested, you could sign up to become a member.

Phantom of the Opera
2. The Museum of Modern Art: most commonly known as MoMA; one can easily spend a whole day at this museum. The place is filled with works by famous artists like Ansel Adams, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Henri Matisse, Salvador Dal, and many more. MoMA is a huge place to explore. There are different floors, categories and genres.

Times Square
3. Broadway: If you're in New York, please do try to go for a Broadway show! It's one of the best experiences ever. The show that we went for was The Phantom of the Opera. The show is magnificent, the acting is brilliant and the music is grand as ever. An interesting fact is the music is performed by music students from New York University some nights. Also, remember to dress up all fancy!

4. Times Square: Busy central! Times Square is a photographer's dream...sometimes. The place is always so busy, it's unbelievable! There are people dressed up as characters walking about, there's ten different genres of music playing about everywhere, there are street artists performing or painting, and there are the group of tourists clicking pictures from all sorts of angles. If you're the kind that likes to observe crowds, Times Square is the place for you. Grab a cup of coffee or a bowl of Cold Stone ice cream and just sit there, observing people. It's not the weirdest thing that can happen there, trust me!

View from the Empire State Building
5. Empire State Building: Catch the best view of New York City from the top of the Empire State Building. The best time to go is during the night, when the city is lit up and you photographers can capture some breathtaking pictures. It gets quite crowded, but everyone gets a chance to enjoy the view.

These are my top five "to do" things in New York. Comment below on what you would like to do or have done during your visit to the world's busiest city, New York!

It hurts...But Not Always

It hurts...
When I look at you,
Knowing I can't have you;
Temptation...no can do.

It hurts...
I stand there,
Staring at you...
Why can't you change?

It hurts...
I am not the only one;
There are millions,
Who feel alike.

It hurts...
When I smile,
When I cough,
or when I run a mile.

Two weeks later,
I feel better.
The pain is gone;
It was momentary;

I can have you, sweets.
You have changed, weight.
Motivation is all that's needed.
Exercise...is essential. And helpful.

'The Word Game'

So we played this game where we each have to say a word to form a sentence and then a story and so on. We then had the idea of jotting it down and I decided to post it on my blog, just for the fun of it! So have a good laugh people!

And a huge thanks to Mashal, Tanushree, Paulina and Sundeep!


It was dark outside. There was a werewolf dancing along with fairies. Tanushree was a witch with a big head. Mermaids were playing with Sundeep in the park. Paulina was watching the ballet Olympics with her boyfriend and his brother, Miguel and Hulio. The Spanish hot boys were dancing with the vampires. Paulina fell in love with one of them. Anu was making out with her professor, Hulio. While the mermaids were sunbathing with Mashal in a rollercoaster, Tanushree cast a spell on Sundeep. Sundeep died. Zombies at his funeral saved him. They gave him vampire powers which made him insane making him fall in love with Bella Swan.


Paulina’s sock got lost because Mashal ate it. Firefighters were shirtless searching for Paulina’s sock. Then Sundeep found a frog and kissed the frog. Miracle happened. Sundeep turned into a frog. He kissed the previous frog and turned back to a female. Tanushree saw this and instantly fell in love with magic and snails without the shell. The firefighters stripped off their spacesuits wearing nothing but boxers which stank. Mashal fell ill because she drank fish and frog juice cooked in Paulina’s sock. She thought that it was real food (with no rice). A homeless guy blew up a Bentley that was Anu’s. Tanushree’s magic started a fire in the garage that overcooked Mashal’s food. Mashal’s tongue got burned. The firefighters ran, but left their trousers hanging from the trees outside Paulina’s room. Paulina closed her curtains because she was embarrassed. Her face had jellybeans and mushrooms. Meanwhile Sundeep changed his name to Lisa.

One night as I was going to sleep, I was listening to my music. I got the idea that I should compile a few lyrics of various songs to make a poem; and this is an attempt. It doesn't make much sense, I feel. But any feedback, criticism and comments are welcome! The songs used and links to the originals are provided at the end of the "poem".

[No copyright infringement intended]


Never put my love out on the line,
Never really noticed;
All the little things you did.
It makes all the difference.

I leave my heart open,
Although I am broken;
It's not all darkness,
It's not all light.

I got nothing,
But my aching soul.
You don't have to fix this;
Sit with me tonight.

I gasp for air,
Little did I know;
It hurts so bad.
It hit me...
Like a Heart Attack.

Song List:
1. Demi Lovato: Heart Attack
2. Enrique: Finally Found You
3. Enrique: Heart Attack
4. Garriston Starr: Sit With Me Tonight
5. Lana Del Ray: Young and Beautiful
6. One Direction: Story of My Life

When Friend Becomes Stranger

Sharing secrets, sharing stories,
We talk everyday...
Feelings and emotions...
In every possible way.

Coffee, Lunch, Dinner...
We slowly start meeting up,
Gone are the days,
When we just used to say, "Sup?"

Such a beautiful bond;
Nothing gets in between.
Until one day it all shatters,
Without being seen.

You haven't spoken for days.
Responses take longer.
There's an empty hole in your heart.
When Friend Becomes Stranger.

Loving and Falling in Love

Obviously there is a distinct difference between the two. I can love anyone or anything. Like I love coffee. But falling in love is more emotional, meaningful and sometimes unrequited. But that's not the point. The point is, I have fallen in love twice. And both, sadly, with fictional characters.

Bet you see where the post is going. It's not about the downside of love. Or the love in my life. I have sufficient love in my life. My family loves me and I love them back. That's all that matters. Friends do love...but only if you're really really really really close.

Moving on. The two characters I've been "in love" with are Dean from Supernatural and Stiles from Teen Wolf. Now before you judge a show by it's name, give it a watch. I seriously think the writers of Teen Wolf should have named their show something else...like Wolf Bane (as suggested by Tanushree). That way, their show would have no comparison to the sad series of Twilight. Seriously, the two are not even remotely related!

Getting back to the point, I am obviously, not in love with these two characters. If similar people existed in my life, I probably would fall in love with them. That's the thing with love...it's all very subjective. We sometimes have that feeling, when your friend tells you about someone they like and you're all "Him? Seriously? What do you see in him?" If we all saw the same in everyone, we'd end up loving the same people...and we don't want that, do we?

So, don't ever judge your friends for who they like. Let people make their life happen the way they want it. Do not interfere. Love is subjective...accept it that way.

And on that note, here is a video made by my friend, Bettina, on the love of my life, Stiles! Enjoy:

Rhossili Bay!

Cliffs at Sea
I've been to Rhossili three times, and this was my fourth trip. I was excited, as usual. There's nothing more than travel that gives me an adrenaline rush. Tanushree and I headed to the bus station from Swansea University. We were meeting a few more friends there; that's what made the whole trip more exciting! The three different trips had been three different experiences, because of the people I went with.

Turns out, our friend, Ketan, was the only one there. His roommates were meant to join us. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, they couldn't make it. We didn't let that affect our excitement though. It was Ketan's first visit to Rhossili, and we were determined to make it lots of fun!
Walking around
We took the bus. It was more or less a 45 minutes journey. We did our own things - clicking pictures, listening to music, talking - and finally, we were there!

It's like the weather suddenly decided to match our moods, and it was sunny! Rhossili Bay is gorgeous when the sun shines all over the damp grass. The waves across the bay look dramatic, no matter what weather! But the colour of the water, that deep, oceanic...almost "can't-stop-staring"...blue, happens only when the sun is out; and this time, we were lucky.
Our lovely walking surface!

We walked on top of the cliffs, daring to approach the edges. We clicked many pictures, putting our photography skills to work. As we kept walking, we saw a young man, of our age. He had a backpack, a small snack and his Nikon D3100. He was seated on a bench, observing the people and scenery around him. We didn't notice how he looked as we were more engrossed in our experience. But I do remember Tanushree whispering, "He's like you! You came alone once, didn't you? So cool!" And I couldn't help but smile to myself, thinking that there are people out there, just like me.

We finally reached the left-end of the bay, where we could get a sort of clear view of Worm's Head. There were pebbles between the end of the bay and Worm's Head. It was 13:30hrs and the tide comes in at 17:00hrs. We were all seated, gazing out and taking in the beauty of the nature (and the warmth of the rare sunshine). Just when we were discussing whether or not we should cross to Worm's Head, the young man we had observed earlier stood behind us and smiled. He greeted us.

The four of us exchanged names and a few facts about each other. His name is Brian and he is a student from America.

Stopping to click photographs
Then the most amazing two and a half hours of my whole stay in Swansea, began. We crossed the stretch between the bay and Worm's Head. It was lots of walking, climbing, jumping and photography. Alongside all that, it was a lot of laughter, stories and talking mini-autobiographies of our lives.

We finally made it to Worm's Head, like it was a hike from one city to another. We were not tired. We still burst with excitement. And this journey just made our hearts pump with more adrenaline. After a few photographs at Worm's Head, we headed back to Rhossili Bay.

At Worm's Head
There, we enjoyed the most beautiful sunset, where Brian said something I'd never forget, "God is just showing off now!" Indeed he was...and why wouldn't he? The world is so beautiful.

The beautiful sunset
Needless to say, it was one of the most epic journeys of my life. I met a new person, discovered new things about people I knew, did what I enjoyed most - photography and adventure...and had a new experience. Like I said, Rhossili is a place where you are guaranteed to always have a different experience, no matter how many times you go.

Some helpful facts:

- If you're travelling from Swansea City Center to Rhossili, take the bus number 118.
- Buy a day ticket - it should cost you 4.70 Pounds, with return.
- Wear waterproof shoes as you'll have a lot of walking to do in a lot of wet land.
- Carry water and some snacks as the cafe closes pretty early (around 5pm , if I'm not mistaken).
- If you plan on crossing the stretch to Worm's Head, good footwear and a decent backpack is recommended.

The Advantage of Exams

Advantage...psh! The advantage is when they're over!

It's exam time again. Stress on again. Why do we have to write exams anyway? It's quite hypocritical to say that literature and art is subjective, then write an exam on it. Even if we write an exam on it, we shouldn't fail. It's subjective!

But I say this all out of frustration. It's exam stress. Sigh pie.

Anyway, this post is regarding exam stress. I know I've posted earlier on about exams and what I do instead of studying (click here to read about my sad life). Well now here's a list to motivate you to study!

1. Exams go by quickly. I'm not even kidding. You think you've time during an exam and before you know it, those three hours went by like three seconds!

2. After exams, you are permitted one day to sleep like for 24 hours straight if needed!
3. All that exam stress weight you gain (by eating junk food and whatnot) will be lost when you go partying and all that jazz.
4. Think of all the series you have given up! You can watch them all at one go!
5. You can finally waste time without feeling guilty...then again, we do that anyway.

All I can say is, it's almost over!

Good luck peeps!

A little too late, so obviously my New Year's Resolution has nothing to do with my time management. Meh. What the hell?

Which is why I say, the whole "new year, new me" concept never works. You cannot change just because it's the start of a new year. You change when you feel like. When you think you need to start exercising, start! Don't wait for the new year.

New Year Resolutions are nothing but a back up...something that makes us feel better. Something that makes us feel like we've been given another chance. A new start.

Nope. I'm still same old me. I eat chocolates. I watch Friends (the TV show). I procrastinate. Oh but I did give up coffee...but on 28th December! So HAH!

Anyway. Point is, it's a new year. But we have exams okay? I have an issue with that by the way. How can we go home, where tis all warm and nice and stuff, and then come back to this depressing weather, and on top of that, write exams?! (<-- such a long sentence that hardly makes sense in terms of grammar and/or syntax but pfft!)

Having ranted it all out, HAPPY NEW YEAR folks! I shall be doing some new things this year. But I'll blog about all that later on...after exams, that is.

Peace be with you.
