What Now?

W

I’m done with college. I’m also back to my hometown. As I woke up late, after an unplanned ten-hour sleep, there were two things going on in my head. First, a plethora of guilt. Second, the question that the guilt kept asking me, “what now?”

The Shoebox of Memories

T

When I was a somewhat younger version of the child I am today, I found an empty shoebox lying around in my cluttered house. Now as a child, I was filled with more sentiment than I was with logical thought and so I kept a rock in that shoebox. It was a small piece, but it was the start of an archive.

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...

Remembering Cybercafés: Where Did My Childhood Go?

R

I’m not usually a perpetrator of “I was a 90s kid” statements. However, I’ve been thinking and reminiscing about something that is almost non-existent today. Hell, I haven’t seen one up and running properly since years. When was the last time you visited a cybercafé just to browse the internet? If you’re reading this, I’m pretty sure the answer is...

Why Breaking Your Character Is Necessary To Grow In Life

W

In storytelling, and otherwise, “character” is a strong word. It is quite literally the definition of a person. To have a good character is analogous to being a good person. In storytelling of all forms, breaking character is a significant act. It is often a defining moment which pushes a character to do something they won’t usually do and that, in turn, makes the story and the...

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.

The AUX Cable Diaries: Music, Friends, And Differences

T

The AUX cable is perhaps one of the biggest examples of trust between a group of friends. If you can trust a friend with an AUX cable, you can probably trust them with everything. AUX is obviously synonymous with Bluetooth now. Basically, the guy who plays music in the car full (and at times, overloaded) with friends is under a lot of pressure. That is because no more than three people can have...

How Leaving The Nest Changed Me, And What Made Me Realise That

H

Leaving the nest is a significant step for birds, and well, humans. I know because I have felt it firsthand. We’re human beings, and although all of us are unique and different, one thing remains common. We crave change and growth. Seeing the world and moving about in it is the easiest way to do just that. A couple of recent events made me realise this very fact.

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...
