Uh Uh

they say (actually they don’t) that if you leave a page blank for too long, either your mind is blank, or you don’t know what to say..how to start or what to say.The same can/can not be true for me depending on..uh..a lot of things. So apart from rambling I’ve taken to watching movies..and reading too many books at the same time, hence not even finishing a single one of them. I like living in oblivion and still make the most crucially self expected mistakes. Its almost like I know this is not exactly a good idea but yet I fool myself into going ahead with it, and at the time of the outcome I almost hear myself saying told you so. My dear friends who visit this blog as a part of my friendship-pact with them, will find themselves saying there she goes again. The reason why you find a minimalist level of punctuation on this page and center alignment is because..I feel like I should go on without pauses..taking in the thorns that come in the way almost in the same way as a girl gets used to waxing, she knows that it hurts but she has to do it anyways..for temporary satisfaction. I really don’t know why I’m saying all this, I should bite my tongue.. maybe I’m inspired by my friend’s no-full stop brutally kickass presentation, maybe I’m inspired by Amelie. Maybe this is like a self backlash, maybe its zero inspiration, maybe its just another ramble.

Geebs if you are reading this kindly mail me the wowio account username and password I’ve forgotten what it was. Others can recommend some good music maybe, cause I’m used to getting used to the same song and not listening to too much apart from that anyways.

Also, steady news of 50 percent of the people I know getting engaged is actually quite shocking yet weirdly gulp inducing, when you wonder how and why everyone’s getting hitched. Actually its not the end of the world, maybe its one of those okheregoesanotherone feeling or an okiseemtobetheonlysingleonehere or a ohfuckmytimeiscomingnear kinda feeling (i know some of you are dying to say a few things by now especially ppl who I know I am talking about)
So like a good blogger, I shall leave you to attack.



So yes…this doesn’t happen often, but there are about twenty people online..I’m alone in my room…suddenly feel the urge to talk to someone, but i don’t wanna call up my friends..no one’s around..and lo and behold..here’s a tag from Shreeja….
I tag Mehnaz, Viking, Nikhil, Kriti and Sherifa!

I’m always about Me.

Whenever I start typing without inserting a title, I know I don’t know what I’ll be talking about. (Even otherwise..I rarely know). Today I wont analyze where I’m headed, what I’m stuck with, what I want to do, what I would rather do, why I’m doing what and where will it take me…or rather what am I actually suited for!
Today I won’t even analyze this place and its people with more layers than photoshop, more insecurities than a person who believes in two sparrows for joy (shit thats me), or with quadruple relationships or five better halves every year or who seek more attention than a peacock.

I miss playing with eight month old Sarthak, the son of our night duty lady guard, who seems to have been given a duty in some remote part of this campus. I like the workers children here. My long walks in the evening allow me to think randomly and sometimes of things that I’m scared to think of..or don’t want to face. Though still apprehensive of walking alone beyond certain dark curvy roads uphill, I think I’ve been brave enough to walk alone, something I hated doing, not because I was scared..but because I always needed company..to talk or to walk with (I have no idea why). But now its me and music..which is good. Not being lost but losing myself and coming back. I’m not scared of the random dogs anymore (ok maybe a little bit). I only wish I had an Ipod with some five thousand songs maybe…yes geebs i still would prefer an ipod to your yucky zune.

I believe I can have the time of my life if I want to, only I’ve to keep reminding myself of that. Still have certain silly Monica-ish habits, which I think is good, but gets annoying when..I end up voluntarily becoming Monica. Ok I dont know what I’m saying. My life is getting into a routine which needs just some more push. Just some more.
I have like 5 books to read. and some pdf’s and ebooks. I want to smell the sea. and the sand. and some candy and corn..and some hunks maybe 😛
Contentment. We’ll never reach there..until we have grandchildren maybe.
I want to paint!

the dead blog

No dropped thoughts,
Not even stray observations..
Nor a faint sense of gratitude
Sighing with dead winds directionless
Chimes the tinkling bell once in a while.
Not a call from the marooned
Neither a holler from deep inside
Its another random attempt
To ring in what remained alive.
