self quarantine, day 5 – restless days and a flicker of persistent hope

I haven’t stepped out of my house since 18th March, and I miss the feeling of the sun on my skin. If corona hadn’t broken out and forced a lock down, Egg and I would’ve been in the same state today. it’s been almost a year since I’ve seen her. if she would be here…… Continue reading self quarantine, day 5 – restless days and a flicker of persistent hope

literally having 2020 vision haha

Here’s something about winters, they make me sleepy and sad, but not the depressed kind of sad, but the gloomy kind of sad. The kind of sad that makes me want to switch my phone off, make the room dark and stare at the ceiling for hours. I’m a stereotypical winter lover, I wear fluffy…… Continue reading literally having 2020 vision haha

“everyone has their yellow paint”

If you’d peek in my closet you’d know that I was one of those people who has a clothing item in almost every shade and colour. I don’t remember when this rainbow closet dream began, but I think it did when my mom told me her favourite colour was black. She’s not one of those…… Continue reading “everyone has their yellow paint”

a list for when everything gets tiring

Some days I find it hard to get out of bed and face the day, or hold a conversation even with the people I love talking to. It gets straining to even jump in the shower or eat a snack, and everything just feels tired and unnecessary. We are under the constant pressure that if…… Continue reading a list for when everything gets tiring

thank you, for being so unkind to me :)

August was like an unsympathetic and ruthless friend who pretends to love you and care for you, but then you find their knife lodged in your spine. If you want to give someone cutlery, the least you could’ve done was tied a ribbon around it. Where are your manners August? The entire month I was…… Continue reading thank you, for being so unkind to me 🙂

four mental break downs and three coffees please

The last few days have been a rollercoaster, not the exhilarating kind where you have a boost of adrenaline and feel at the top of the world, but the kind where you’ve had too much food and didn’t give it enough time to settle and now you’re going to barf your guts out. I’ve never…… Continue reading four mental break downs and three coffees please

I’ve been falling and falling (in love with everything)

The days are pleasant with big fluffy clouds and calm winds and sunlight that feels like a warm hug. I have never felt more at peace with my surroundings. I have never been so in love with everything. There are days when the sky would be bluer or the clouds would put on a show…… Continue reading I’ve been falling and falling (in love with everything)

sweeter 17

yesterday the world turned the same, and I turned seventeen. I’ll be honest, I never pictured myself turning beyond sixteen years old, not that I thought I’d die by then, I just didn’t know what would unfold once my 16th year was over. I still don’t. It was 11pm, an hour inching closer to my…… Continue reading sweeter 17

restless days, restless nights

My usual days are mostly me lying in bed after my lectures of the day are over pretending I’m lying on a cloud. The days got colder all of a sudden when I was expecting the summer to settle in. I’ve been running out of coffee faster than usual because I’ve started to believe that…… Continue reading restless days, restless nights

be gentle with yourself

Sometimes I feel that we only remember the instances when SOMEONE has helped us, or has been kind to us in ways. An act of kindness done by others that makes us feel a little happier. But why is it that we often neglect the kindness that we show ourselves?  The number of times we…… Continue reading be gentle with yourself
