Day 02

The meaning behind your blog name.

It's really evident if you just look at it. There's no hidden meaning, I swear. :P

Day 01

Day 01- A recent picture if you and 15 interesting facts about yourself. 

Yeah. So I apparently look like a psycho in that pic, but it's the only recent one I've got. 

Coming to the facts, I wouldn't say they are interesting, because I don't know if *I* am, but some 15 facts about my self. 

1) I LOVE chips. Any kind, any time. Give me a bag of chips+t.v. or chips+a book and I'm set for life. Or however long the chips and t.v. or book lasts ;)

2) I hate condescending snobs. Considering I may just be one of those (a smidgen), it's really ironic. 

3) I'm very indecisive. I can't make up my mind. I can't even decide on favourites. 

4) I've never been in love. Only came close to unrequited MAJOR like. 

5) I can imitate people really well. 

6) I'm very,very sarcastic. I've often used my rash tongue and regretted it later. 

7) I'm addicted to mind-less relationship dramas like The O.C.

8) I want to become a published writer.

9) I HATE PIGEONS. They should all just DIE. 

10) One of my favourite things to do is yell(sing) my lungs out while no one's at home. 

11) I have an obsessive compulsion to know the ending. To find out if everything was all right or not. 

12) I majorlike  :P 

13) I like keeping up with latest technological gadgets. 

14) I have like, *counts*, eight blogs. 

15) I, er, find it difficult to make friends. (Feels loserly. :/ )


So, I've wanted to do this 30-day blog challenge for a LONG time, and I believe that the time is finally here. I'm going to start second sem (which, I decided would be awesome irrespective of how bad it is. Um, that did not make sense, but wtv.)

Externals. *gulp*

Yes, yes, I'm blogging about exams again. But what do I do? It seems as if that's all I'm doing these days. Writing exams I mean. We have 3 theory internals in a semester of 4 months. 2 Lab internals. And then right after the 3rd theory internal we have lab externals and immediately after lab externals. :O right? Right!

I have my beloved Physics external tomorrow. There are about 6 chapters that I need to study and I'm only done partially with about 2. : / I don't know how I'm going to write tomorrow. I've been watching HIMYM instead of studying. I don't even feel tensed right now. I'm a freak. : \

That's all.


Today's the day.

No, there's nothing special about today. I mean, there's no "attached importance" as such, but, yeah, today IS special. I feel happy. Today is one of those rare days that I love life, that I feel glad to be alive. And like Charlie (from The Perks Of Being A Wallflower) does, I want to record how I feel today, so that when those shitty days and weeks where everything is wrong, and I don't see any purpose of my life, and viva externals tell me on my face that they flunked me and people ignore me, I know there are days like this too. Days that almost, almost make up for having to have to go through all that shit again. I feel infinite today. Like anything is possible. And I know that it IS.

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower is one my favourite books. I've decided. I usually have a very hard time or find it impossible to pick favourites. Especially when it comes to books or music. The music part, I still can't make up my mind, but when it comes to books. Yeah. TPBW is definitely one. A Suitable Boy's another, if you'd like to know. 

My cousin's been really excited about the 100 books project and said she'd like to start it too, and asked me to make a list. So I am. I'm selecting books from those 100 books you must read before you die lists by BBC, The Telegraph, TIME and all, but they mostly have the same classics. Bleh.

Don't get me wrong. Classics are GREAT. But I would love to read highly rated modern books too. Any recommendations? (Especially by Indian authors. New or old)

I'm eating a watermelon, listening to Going To California and sitting in my room, procrastinating (and not feeling guilty about it) Ahh.. Summer's here dahlings! Go lather on some sunscreen that you find. :P

And for the first time, I don't feel like signing off by saying that my post was pathetic. Because I don't really think it is. WOW. Special day huh?

P.S. Charlie reference again- Listen to the "Asleep" by The Smiths. That's all. Bai! : )

Hey You- 2!

Since I mentioned about people who made an impact on our lives. I want to thank these people, for, you know existing/ having existed. I don't know them, and even if I do, I may have crossed their mind for about a milli second or so, but even then. Here's to them.


 I want to tell you how honoured I am that I'm your grand-daughter and show you all that I've written and I would have probably written more and better if you were here. I also feel kind of happy and guilty when people compare me to you. Happy because well, obviously that's a high praise. And guilty, because I've done nothing to deserve that. I promise that one day I will live up to your name and treasure all the books of yours that have been passed down to me.

                         -Your only grand-daughter who was unlucky enough not to have known you.


You're simply awesome. I look up to you. I wish I had the courage to quit engineering and pursue what I want, like you did. And the causes you believe in and the things you write? Amazing. I also stalk your facebook page every once in a while, only because you post links to such awesome stuff I never would've heard of otherwise. I hope you come back to India, and do something for this country we both love in the same way. Good luck with A.A. (Yes, yes, stalking told me all about her too.)

                        -The girl who once commented on your blog.


You're awesome too. My stalker-ish tendencies started with your profiles, I believe. You are like GOD man, really. Thank you for the bands, for the inspiration, for saving from killing my self due to stress and boredom during boards and eamcet. You sing awesomely too. \m/
I hope I run into you someday.

                      -A fan. Literally.


I don't want to THANK you. Not really. Just want to say. TALK TO ME DAMMIT.

                        -Someone who mustn't have crossed your mind for more than a second.


Thanks for being such an awesome author. I know most people must dismiss your books as fluff, but I've enjoyed thoroughly each and every one of them I've read during the last two years. I'm sorry that I've downloaded them but I promise I'll give you your deserved royalties once I start earning.

Annnnd, more later, like always.

Hey You!

No, not you obviously. I'm talking about the people who make an impact on our lives. And know nothing, NOTHING about it! It may be a crush, or someone you admire or deeply hate, but we all have that one person or persons who affects our life in such a big way and doesn't know anything about it.

If, for example, it's a crush, just a "Hi" would make your day, would it not? And you would go pester your poor, crap-bearing friends about it. What was that single "Hi" to the other person? NOTHING. Funny, eh? That's the way life works, I 'spose. No one said it was fair. 

If I affect someone's life in any which way, ( which I don't think I do) I want them to come and tell me, "hey! you're making me miserable"  Orr.. we should be able to know somehow what actions of ours affect whom and how.  I'm not making sense. But then, I don't, most of the time. 

So that was my rant. 

Coming to other things. I have my first external tomorrow ( I always seem to write about exams here, don't I?) and that's all I'm going to say about THAT for now. 

Also, I finished reading The Catcher In The Rye today, and...... 

I didn't understand it very much. 

*cough* *cough* 

I feel dumb when that happens. And it happens quite sometimes.
