I am alive

Sorry for not posting but a family emergency took all my attention. I didn’t even go to my internship. Will do a new proper post tomorrow and also check out new posts from fellow bloggers. I missed you all. Happy to be back.

Happy Father’s Day

Go embarrass your dad with this cheesy Bollywood song. I did a rendition of this song today and my dad’s face was priceless.

Me and my siblings write cheeky cards for my dad and this year my brother wrote the most awful yet extremely hilarious father’s day card using Google translator for Hindi.  Instead of writing your son in Hindi, he wrote our son. Although that wasn’t the only mistake he made. Seriously though, appreciate your dad by giving him a nice present. They may not outwardly express it but they do enjoy getting a thoughtful present from their kids.

Happy Birthday Bhai

YAY! It is my brother’s birthday and already he is a young adult. Time flies so fast.  He is so busy right now and actually working on an art project for Nuit Blanche. Happy Birthday Ladoo.  Also promoting his blog because that’s what older sisters do. Designgute is a blog about photography so if you are into that, do not hesitate to click on the link.

I am singing my blues…

For the past 2 days, I’ve been sad. It didn’t make want to blog or go to my internship or do anything. I also felt extremely tired. I don’t know why I just suddenly became miserable, irritable and annoying. I suffered a mild case of depression 2 years ago. It lasted over 4 months. I am spiritual and I think I was being protected by some sort of divine energy that made me snap out of it. I sought help and I got better. Ever since then I have to fight to keep the funk away. It is always there at the edges. Sometimes it makes me not care about anything.  I know and have seen people who suffer from depression that has lasted years. I just don’t want to suffer the same fate. I am telling you even the milder bout of depression is scary. It is really hard to describe. You might seem normal from outside but you don’t really feel right inside. Anyway, I am out of the funk for now. I’ll try to post more regularly.

Here enjoy the Korean group Big bang’s song Blue. It is a pretty good song and I got my title from it. Also, stay positive people and never give up. Fighting!

Changing Ourselves

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” ― Leo Tolstoy

Last year, I was a whining, entitled twit who believed the world owed her something. “Why don’t they hire me? I am such a hard worker,” I whined to my parents. Yet, I didn’t have the skills to get the job. Sure there are people who get jobs through connections but I was just procrastinating and complaining. I am recently taking steps to get more work experience and doing an internship at a law firm. It is not paid but I learn valuable skills. So, let’s celebrate the first step to change. We are not changing the word but ourselves so we can be better. If you have recently decided to change yourself by acquiring a new skill, modifying your attitude or starting an exercising regimen, please share your story.

I have been attacked

Dear readers, I’ve been very troubled for the past 2 days. You see, I have been attacked by Pimplus Eruptus. Okay, it is just a bad case of acne that I never had to experience as a teenager. Lest you think I am exaggerating, I will let you know that I am also getting a pimple at the tip of my nose. Who gets a pimple at that spot? This month has been extremely stressful for me and maybe I am not eating well. I am trying a new skincare routine to battle the blemishes but seriously, I am not liking the way my face looks. Plus, it gets itchy and painful. Yes, this is a superfluous blog post. I understand there is war and famine going on in other parts of the world. But, my face still belongs to me and I can’t get rid of it.  It really impacts the way I feel. Any suggestions on how to battle blemishes? Home remedies? I do have sensitive skin so nothing with lemon. My face will turn into an angrier shade of red.

P.S: Give me one more week to settle into the new home and then I will update regularly. Also, I promise to post picture of the new place.

We worry about insignificant things

Yesterday, I slipped on the stairs and hit my head hard on the edge. At that moment, fear took hold of me and I thought, is this it? Will I die? Luckily, I was fine and just got a big bump on my head and bruises on my legs. In that brief moment, I had an Epiphany. I realized that most of us spend our whole lives worrying about insignificant things. How many of us stress over our commute to work everyday? Do we get all nervous when we are late? How about stressing over our appearance? We spend most of our lives thinking about these things and consequentially are unhappy. Now, I am not saying, do not take things in life seriously. Coming to work on time is good but you can only control so many things in your life. If there is bad traffic and you left work on time, you cannot do anything. Stop being irritable. Just take a deep breath. You are alive and this means that you have the rest of day to accomplish whatever you set out to do. Relax and enjoy life because it can be gone any moment. Really we all need to cherish our lives because it is precious.

I just hit a milestone!

Thank you each and everyone of you for following, reading and commenting on my blog. Your feedback, love and support means a lot to me. I now have 50 followers. Woo Hoo! Now, this might be a very small number but for me it matters a lot. Thank you. Oh, today is the closing of our new home. We get the keys today so it is a happy day for me. Now, that the home situation will be finally settled in the coming weeks, I hope to write more as I will be  less busy in my daily life. Have a great day everyone 🙂
