If it’s not clear from the subtitle of this blog or many blog posts, I like learning. In fact, I love learning. A lot of that learning has recently been in the form of paid courses and nano-degrees. Most people I know ask me why I prefer paying for knowledge that is freely available in other ways. Let me share my side of the story and let’s see if it makes sense to you.
I live alone. I wasn’t forced into it. Like all of us, I had seen movies and how they romanticised living alone. The exaggerations check out. Yes, I have danced as I exited the bathroom without any clothes on because who won’t? Yes, I love being in control of my space and not having to share it. I like a lot of it but not the last few hours of every day. At least, not since the last...
I try to do a lot, and I achieve what I can. That’s not my line though. It belongs to a friend. I love it though so I’ll use it here blatantly and without asking her for permission first. However, I was talking to another friend from school the other day, and he said something I can’t just shake off that easily. He said, “It’s better to be into the things you are...
I don’t have a blog post today. In fact, I wish I did, but honestly, I don’t. I understand how meta this sounds. You’re reading a blog post about blog posts or the lack thereof but hear me out, like always, before you say something.
I’m an introvert which oddly enough, most people don’t believe anymore. However, I’ve stressed this multiple times in multiple blog posts. One of them is quite popular if the number of readers is concerned. Even if people accept my introversion as valid, they have one question: How are you so social? Let me answer that in one phrase: Fake it, till you make it.
If there’s one thing I truly despise about growing up, it’s the numbers. The numbers are annoying. To be honest, the number of digits I remember and how deeply they define my life scares me. To put things in perspective, here is a series of questions for you.
“Look at her. She documented every hour of the day for her 200 fans”, said one of my friends to another friend who made enough Snapstories to earn that jibe. All of us laughed. She was red. Obviously. That little remark got me thinking though, and I figured it out. In this age of social media, not staying on it hinders your life more than you’d realise. So, instead of quitting...
Ever had one of those days where you’re sad, happy, confused and everything in between? You come back home, throw your bag on the desk, take a sip of water and let out a sigh. “It was a long day”, you think or say to yourself. Well, if you’ve ever had that feeling, you’ll know how I feel when I say, “I’ve had a long year”.
I’m not a sucker for things I use, but I have one rule when it comes to brands. If it works, it works, and I won’t look twice. This is why I’ve used the same pen for since I was in fourth grade. A friend pointed it out recently when they saw it in a picture I sent them. It goes beyond just the pen though.
I like writing, but I’m not one of the snobs who love a typewriter. Alright, I am. However, affording a vintage typewriter and maintaining it is hard. Also, you cannot post on a blog from it, so there’s that. However, I do appreciate technology and how beautifully it enhances the experience of doing what you love. I (almost) wrote and published a blog post from a movie theatre.
