The parents are taking me on a vacation

The last time the WHOLE family went on one was when I was in the 9th grade. Do the math, its been long overdue

As usual I over packed and finally mum lost it and yelled at me when I tried to sneak in all the sunnies I own.
This time I am lazy, I usually enjoy packing the best and literally shed tears while unpacking. Currently, I am lying in the midst of all that with a backache. Maybe will just dump them all in a bit

Going with the family has its perks. I do not have to take care of anything (Medicines and the first aid kit was my ONLY responsibility) Tickets, hotels, rentals, finances not a care in the world. I will certainly miss this when I leave again

But yay! To cooler climates and fall fashion. (Kharagpur is stuck at summer, extreme sweaty, horrid summer)

The mountains are calling and here I come

Ps - I am leaving day after, turns out mum is even more obsessive and made me pack today

Happy Birthday RYO!

I know this looks like a bunch of generic basic selfies. BUT the huge faces and pretty filters are special today, its from ALL the PoRo times when we went out and couldn't walk back home straight

What would I even do without this amazing person? She is just as weird and crazy and obsessive about random things like me. She can get super motivated at times just like me. She can also get super depressed at times just like me(okay, not much as me). We are currently trying out a pattern where we don't coincide. We manage to make it through life venting about the world to each other. She is my walking Game of Thrones encyclopedia, its truly amazing how I describe one tiny scene and she tells me the season and episode

She is my brain twin. And she keeps me sane

Here's to a year of getting things we want, things we shall take, by force

Lots of love. πŸ’œ

Ps - I forgot to put in two pictures which I spent a VERY long time editing

Pps - A HUGE THANK YOU for patiently looking through the 5789 photos and videos of Kang Daniel ( #kangdaniel #goddaniel #wannaone #κ°•λ‹€λ‹ˆμ—˜ #μ›Œλ„ˆμ› #kpop) I send everyday

Although I don't deserve it, I want one of these days again

Its certain I am growing up to be exactly like mum, but with one monumental difference.
She is pro active, a lot.
I tend to prefer my time more horizontal than vertical.
In fact, this was the first time I saw her in bed all day. Even when sick, she makes it to the couch and makes me do things. She was amazed at how I could sleep for 16 hours straight

Innately I am a very lazy person. I get bursts of energy very sporadically but in those bursts I accomplish work worth weeks. If I ever turn into someone who runs for fun, you should know the end is near

Its suddenly annoyingly hot again here. And I am contributing to killing the planet with the air conditioning on a lot, but it really cant be helped. I got drenched trying to get to the fridge yesterday

I am a hoarder

Pretty much like a magpie or a niffler. The things I collect the most are stationary and flavoured teas. I literally can't stop myself when I see beautiful handmade paper journals. Since buying different flavoured teas is one of my rare good adult grocery shopping habits, mum encourages it too. I also steal them from hotel rooms. Unashamedly

This has led to a boxful of random assortment of teas with endless choices. I have now been ordered to finish them before buying anymore

If you haven't ever tried rose and mint flavoured green tea, you are missing out on life. The one tea that I have been lusting over for months is the Butterfly pea flower tea. It has this magical blue colour which reminds me of potions

Today, I made the last of my favourite fruit tea the parents got from Austria last year. Mum threatened to finish it if I didn't.
It was the best tea ever

Growing up is accepting a lot of things.
Growing old is not giving a damn about it anymore

Here is a list:

1. Life is easier when you are attractive
Argue as much as you want against this, in your heart you know its true. Before you fight me on this, note how I used the word attractive and not pretty/beautiful/handsome

2. However hard you work, there will always be someone working harder and better
And I say this AS AN ASIAN

3. Luck is a thing
I am vehemently against believing in luck and stars and planets and positions and karma but lately I can't help but wonder

4. Fake it till you make it
This may seem like horrible advice (I certainly don't recommend it). But, 90% of us are just winging it. And we know it
We are all Jon Snow, we all know nothing

5. Everybody lies. And thats okay
Lying about things was taboo as a kid. I remember being smacked for lying, a lot and was terrified of lying. Now, I lie confidently and feel no remorse. Just yesterday I finished a huge bar of chocolate and when asked about it, said it was dad. (I am supposed to be on a diet)

6. Money definitely brings some amount of happiness
For example, when I am sad (which is borderline perpetual), buying a Burberry trenchcoat will make me 500 times happier

7. The older you get, the judgier you get
Don't tell me as a late 20 something year old, at some point of time a millenial has never got on your nerves

8. Thigh gaps are not happening. Not in this lifetime

Pepperoni pizza will always lift your mood but to be honest a simple, home made, low calorie, soul food like this beautiful chicken noodle soup Ro's mum made us once, is far more satisfying

Ps - Dad totally ratted me out

Pps - It is also very true that hard work pays. Maybe as not as much you expect or want but its never wasted. That's the one thing I can say with confidence

I am easily obsessed

I can listen to the same song 50 times a day for months and never get bored. This summer has been particularly kind to me in the good music aspect. These three songs are the ones I have been listening to, day and night for over the past month and a half. I even have the lyrics memorised

The only time I truly come to hate a song is if I ever set one as an alarm. In the first year of med school, I had put Scar Tissue by Red Hot Chilli Peppers as my alarm. Took me 4 years to get over hating it. Which is such a pity because its an amazing song. So yeah, I learnt my lesson and never put songs as alarms

Music is so important.
Sometimes I go through my 146.1gb worth of music (not exaggerating, I really do have a LOT of music) for an entire day and wish I had time to listen to more. The only regret I have these days is that I have never been exposed much to 80s music. Ro is fixing that and gives me the best ones to listen now and then

I have had my country music phase, soft rock phase, progressive rock phase, pop music phase, RnB phase and now its Kpop.
Indian music is always there to sooth the soul πŸ’œ

I shall go listen to Billie Jean on repeat now

So, Adi sent me snaps for over a month before realising I didn't have snapchat anymore

She finally sent some on other messaging platforms

Do you ever feel the entire world is on a side and you are on another? Fending for yourself, dragging yourself through messes, cursing at every new obstacle, looking longingly at the other side knowing you don't really want to be part of that either?
Adulting for me has been a lot of that

Growing up has been a series of unpredictable events.
You come to terms with how life isn't fair. Early twenties was all about complaining about it, late twenties is basically accepting all of it. I threw a fit when I lost some hair back then, now I am on the way to baldness and I have looked up wigs online

We all learn to settle

I have a bad case of tension headaches and my head has been sore and tender since last night. That made me irritable and more difficult than usual. It's been a bad day. This cheered me up a bit. And phone calls with Ro

The clouds today looked like a cat and a dragon.
Ser Pounce and Drogon plotting to do away with humans and take over the damn iron throne

Today, I "accidentally" read the plot for the season finale of Game Of Thrones. Do not worry, if nothing else, I am decent enough not to spoil it for anyone else. But let me get my pent up anger out.
WHO LEAKS PLOTS FOR GODS SAKE? Episodes are still fine at least people can watch it

I am so mad I can't even

And don't even get me started on the fan theories. I mean, if you have that much of energy and imagination and time, GO WRITE YOUR OWN BOOK. If I hadn't ever read the whole R+L=J, my mind would have been blown. (No, I dont go around reading theories and plots, some idiots think its fine to comment on fb posts, little life tip: stay THE HELL AWAY from fb post comments). These are the people who are too lazy to have ever read the books but go around reading scripts and spilling it over the internet. I swear, if I ever find out (not likely) who decided to leak the goddamn plot, I am feeding the person Indian rainy season roadside pani puris.

The amount of stupid over the internet is overwhelming

Ps - For those who don't know, rainy season pani puris will guarantee you explosive diarrhoea. Especially people who aren't Desi

Thai rice noodles with shrimp

Although I enjoy cooking every now and then, I have new found respect for professionals.(not that i didn't before, it's actually been a long cherished dream of mine to marry a chef). It took me 47 minutes to thinly slice the carrots and bell peppers and onions.
I got so tired by the end that I forgot to add the groundnuts

I was just going to put a slightly dying flower beside the bowl and call it a day but mum insisted on arranging flowers and scented candles for the ambience. She is THE BEST

Next week I am making instant noodles πŸ™„

Current mood

Sometimes, everything makes me mad. Right now, the frogs croaking outside is making me want to split my head open

Hating things is definitely exhausting. But, at times, it gives me life

So, today I am channelling my inner Wednesday. I even had pigtails and black clothes on. She was my favourite character back in the day. I insisted being called Wednesday at one point of time. Needless to say, mum didn't play along and snapped (read: slapped) me out of my black clothes and mean attitude in no time. That didn't stop be from being a Wednesday OUTSIDE home. Till date, I think I am two completely different individuals in and out of home

I hate opthal the most

On Sundays I like to hover around in the kitchen.
Today I was craving hummus and pita bread. Didn't get the bread, so it's store bought pita chips and home made hummus

Middle eastern cuisine is amazing. I love garlic so its very well adjusted on my palate. Also, a bit similar to Indian cooking too. Speaking of garlic, mum force feeds me two raw cloves everyday. It has a lot of natural benefits, keeps the cholesterol in check and also anti cancerous. As a doctor, I always feel its so much more important to prevent rather than cure

Lemon, cumin seeds, mint, green tea, raw turmeric, garlic, honey, tulsi leaves (basil but not the pesto sauce basil), cinnamon powder, flax seeds, curry leaves all these should be incorporated into your meals on a daily basis

Eat healthy. Live happy

Ps - Please ignore the store bought potato chips. That is definitely not recommended in healthy eating

Calcutta grew on me

The city is vibrant, festive, offers the best Biryani(don't even try fighting me on this), has rich history, colonial architechture and easy accessibility. All this is there in a great many cities (apart from the Biryani) with a lot of pros and cons, including Calcutta (read: the beautiful streets taken over by hawkers making it unsightly) but what sets this city apart, is a feeling

Calcutta feels comfortable

Last month we visited Sam's place in Rishra and came across this beauty on the way. Colonial era buildings and houses and mansions are my favourite kind. I get this intense desire to buy it and renovate it and live in it. Or make it into a holiday home or a homestay. Its a slightly impossible desire, but a girl can dream

Imagine this old house with a fresh coat of burnt orange on the walls, turquoise windows and a red door. The balcony filled with plants and deck chairs and a multicoloured canopy shed. A couple of pretty lights, hanging flower baskets lining the entrance, a hedge around the house, a tiny pebble path leading upto the door.

I would love to call that my home

Visit Calcutta. Eat Biryani. Drive around the city

Ps - I know the new name is Kolkata, but just like I have grown up saying Bombay, Calcutta is the word with emotions for me. And yes, I take my Biryani a tad bit too seriously
