Not Watching A Video On Self-Discipline Taught Me Self-Discipline

N

I had just come back from Telangana. Volunteering was over. The gap year had resumed, and I was watching Youtube. “Self-discipline is freedom… from yourself” was the title of one of the videos in my Youtube recommends. It was at this point that I had watched Youtube for four hours or so. I wasn’t doing it actively or consciously. I didn’t watch that video. I’m...

Fifteen Months After A Reducetarian Diet, I’m Finally Becoming A Vegetarian

F

I’ve been on a reducetarian diet for the last fifteen months. It has been a fantastic experience. I started off with weekday vegetarianism which I talked about in this blog post roughly twelve months ago. However, today, I finally leapt into it. I’m finally stopping all consumption of flesh. I will, however, consume milk and eggs. So, that makes my new diet a lacto-ova-vegetarian one.

You Don’t Find Your Passion, You Do Things Passionately

Y

Passion is the poster boy of the 21st century. No discussion about a successful life forgets to include the dreaded keyword. However, there is no magic mantra to living a life that is fulfilling in every aspect; even if there was, I’m sure it would be longer than a single word. I love writing. I love putting words together. Is writing my passion? I’m not so sure, yet. Do I do it...

Overwhelmed By Your Current Life? Try A Soft Reboot

O

It was the last week of January. I was in my hometown, taking a walk around town when all of a sudden, everything that had been on my mind came rushing through. It’s difficult to explain what it exactly felt like. I could physically feel how overwhelmed I was with everything. So, I sat on a nearby bench, and I sobbed. Then, I figured out what I had to do, and I did just that.

A Good Life Isn’t Devoid Of Stress; It’s How You Manage It That Counts

A

Some stress is necessary for life. That is my maxim. That is what I believe. Why is that? I don’t know. Maybe it was the way I grew up. Perhaps, it is how I’m wired. However, I do think that there should always be some stress in life for me to move forward. In fact, stress is slightly positive unless all of us would be somewhat complacent. What do you do if you’re utterly and...

What Most People Don’t Understand When They’re Making Phone Calls

W

We’ve come a long way when it comes to the way we communicate. Most people suck at making phone calls. I have a lot of quirks as a person. I am also easily irritable when it comes to said quirks. One of these is that I hate people who call you and instead of talking to you, they start talking to someone else who’s standing right next to them. In fact, I asked a lot of friends, and...

Don’t Add Water: You Can Always Eat Something Better

D

Eating shit is a choice. This is something I’ve learned in the last six months. In fact, it was almost exactly six months ago when I wrote a post titled, “Just Add Water: A Lazy People’s Guide To 2-Minute Cup Food“. This post talks about my, then recent, acquaintance with instant eatables. This is a passive apology for glorifying the idea of bad eating habits. Just add water...

About The Content

There are two kinds of blog posts here as of mid-2018 – The Journal and The Words.

The Journals are thoughts, lessons, events that unfold in my life word-for-word and as barebones as I can put them out there.

The Words are creative pieces, narratives, short-stories that take from my life but did not happen word-for-word.

You can read more about this change here.
