Its been beautifully rainy and stormy the past two days here

Sometimes, I empty my mind completely and just enjoy the day as it is. Forget the future, forget mcqs, forget everything, VOLUNTARILY. Because it gives me a sense of control, as I am usually in a perpetual struggle to remember things

Today, I made Gamjajeon. Translated literally as potato pancake. I read somewhere it is the Korean version of Pakodas on a rainy day. My parents loved it. Although, I tweaked the traditional dip with a dash of tomato sauce as our palates aren't accustomed to strong soya and vinegar

After what felt like 543 attempts, we managed this awkward selfie. What am I even doing with my paw like hands?
Taking a pretty selfie is an art, which I am failing at like all the other aspects of my life. Thank heavens for flattering lights and glowy filters

My fun RoSam weekend of Drunken Brunches and Game of Thrones went by way too quickly. All I did for four days was nap, drink, eat, watch things and repeat

And today, mum booked a full body massage for me, as if I wasn't relaxed enough. 🙄 Now I feel bad enough to study properly, after weeks of procrastinating

Shall we begin?

When exactly does it cease to be harmless curiosity and become something to be dealt with by the therapist?

At times I channel my inner Aunt Petunia.

I know things like, at 9 pm sharp the family living on the second floor in the building in front of us go out for a walk. Every single day without fail. If they don't, it means they are out of town or sick. It's not like I intentionally plan stake outs at my window, its just that I spend a great deal of time on the balcony sorting out my brain

Having an overly active imagination, on car rides past buildings, I actively try taking in as many details as possible and make up back stories. The ones without curtains are the designated dirty bachelor pads. (In my head). The ones with a lot of fairy lights would be the kind of people I would like. The ones with a lot of plants would be the people who are well sorted and stable

The moon was very pretty a few nights ago

Also, the people on the top floor moved in recently. They have pretty windows. And a swing. And two kids. And they wake up very late

I need brain exercises for concentration

Two days till Ro time!

I have been having a few especially bad weeks (weeks, not days) and so I am going to Calcutta to visit Ro and Sam, have unlimited drinks and food brunch and watch Game of Thrones

There is a fine line between not studying and refusing to study. I have crossed over to the darker side

And I am convinced I have carpal tunnel

Sometimes people don't want to be mean

Sometimes its just miscommunication, bad translations and a complete lack of etiquette training

I have a good example.
A couple of times, I had to call unfamiliar places. The standard response would be "Who are you?" The first time I was taken aback because that is definitely not how we are taught to answer phones.
But as time passed, I knew better. Its true a vast majority of people in India speak English. However, a lot of times, its a direct translation from Hindi. Or any other regional language. Now, in Hindi, "Who are you?" doesn't sound rude at all if you use the proper formal addressing form and tone

This lead me to analyse every mean sounding comment I read online. I am inclined to believe a lot is lost over translation

Of course this doesn't excuse the complete lack of manners and common sense seen online these days. Or even in real life.
Perhaps, its time to teach children to be good, clean, public hygiene aware human beings from the very start. We need a massive system reboot

From elementary school

Because, its very difficult to stop a grown up well educated individual from spewing nasty comments online and offline and public littering

Today, I woke up at 4:30 am

To read my books. Storybooks. My priorities in life are very questionable

I am a fast reader. When I say fast, I mean lightening speed. I consider this to be my superpower. Only when it comes to novels though, it takes me 10 minutes to just comprehend a single page of Biochemistry or Pharmacology 🙄. This has both pros and cons. Pros being I get to read a LOT. A day in the library and I can finish half a shelf. Cons being I am not this fast in Hindi or Assamese, so I never developed a reading habit in these languages. Which is a shame, because Hindi literature is beautiful

So, since 4:30am, I finished Carve the Mark (which was a really good read), Colourless Tsukuru, The last of the Mohicans and currently a fourth through Baldacci. I am in the mood of classics too, will finish all these by midnight

I have to catch up with 5 TV shows and finish a lesson of Korean. Suddenly, my Sunday is jampacked and busy. Must forego some sleep

Also, people who take aesthetically pleasing pictures for a living have my absolute respect. This is not easy. It took me forever to even come up with this mess

PS - the 9o'clocks are slightly dying
@linabean113 I loved the book!

This was my Wonderland

My happy place, my magic kingdom, my fortress, my A-51

I could trade those years for my soul right now. Apart from being the best time of my life, it was also the period that thickened my skin and mind.
First year me and post internship me were two completely different people.

To be completely honest, I really enjoy this phase too. Sitting on my ass and studying, not worrying about food or rent or chores, how hard could that be? But its different. Now there are responsibilities. Exams don't scare me. Results and ranks and marks do. It decides my future

In good news, I managed to get past a gloriously grey rainy day without sneaking in a couple of chapters of my storybook.
I am so proud

PS - I even had the best roomies ever Suchita Radhika 💜

The amount of self control I am displaying right now is unreal

After perhaps a year, I bought myself books over the weekend trip to Calcutta. I was in the mood for some good spy/con/action/thriller and a generic sci fi based one. I didn't get the book I was looking for, The fortress at the end of time by Joe M. McDermott. Vernonica Roth is very young adult and lucid. I liked the Divergent series. David Baldacci is someone I can read at any point of time

Right now, I have to make the adult choice of cramming my head with Biochemistry and its dreadful cycles (which last for less than half a day in my brain) rather than snuggling in bed and devouring my two new books with some tea

My problem is portion control. In all aspects of life. I cannot watch an episode a day. It has to be a season a day.
I binge watch TV. Binge sleep. Binge eat. Binge write. Binge study. Binge read. Binge shop. Binge exercise (and then get moribund for three days 🙄). Its like I have no middle ground. I could finish these two books in a day if I had my way

Immediate life plan : Exercise self control.

Happy Birthday Polly

Miss your pretty face this year so much. Can't wait for you to be back home and hang out in the pretty room

I love you to Trappist 1 and back.
Wish you all the happiness and good vibes this year and break all mojos possible

To old age and senility.

Some days I feel important.
I feel I matter a lot. I feel I do have something good to offer around. I feel charged and my field of vision is converged at my terminus. My head is clear and crisp. My serotonin levels are optimal

Such days are rare.
I make sure to make a note of it. An old school note, in a journal, leather bound, tied up with a string, smelling of cherry blossom essence and made of beautiful handmade paper. Once in a while, when I read it, my heart feels warm. I also jot down the most insignificant moments. How my front tire had a flat, how I saw a bird with a red bottom, how a baby cried when I smiled at him/her, how walking past the breakfast place made my mouth water, how there was a bald guy on my walking path whose head glistened in the morning sun, how I have just two turquoise blue ink pens left

And on the days I don't feel important enough, The Doctor reminds me to

Geronimo!
