Painting nails, munching & musings.

DSC_0532.jpg

I know, the application of my nail paint isn’t great, but no matter what you say, applying nail paint is an art and it’s not easy. So far into this week I didn’t have much to do other than attending a tuition class. I haven’t even left the house in 2 days, haven’t seen a single human face. It’s raining outside so it was the best time to paint my nails. I LOVEEE the colour. Also, isn’t my phone case absolutely adorable? It’s full of cute quotes and it’s white, my favourite colour other than black. My tastes are so Yin Yang-esque. LOL.

While painting my nails I was listening to my current favourite playlist. Suicide Squad soundtracks are basically dominating it – Bohemian Rhapsody and Heathens are the hot cakes right now. Also, I watched the movie last week, even though the reviews weren’t in the movie’s favour, I LOVED IT. Albeit the editing was sloppy, the acting was great. I wanted more of Joker though, Jared Leto was A+. Another movie I recently watched was Finding Dory and OH. MY. GOD., it’s the cutest thing ever! I actually think it’s better than Finding Nemo? Idk. Baby Dory made me melt, I didn’t know how to control myself, the cuteness was just too much. ❤ Coming back to the playlist, it’s been 2 months and I’m still obsessed with Sia’s Cheap Thrills, there’s something about the song that just gets me grooving. Also, who isn’t obsessed with Adele’s Send My Love (to your new luhhhvaaaah)?

After I was done drying my nails, I was craving for something sweet. Had a Hoppits lying  around in the fridge, took it out and enjoyed the lovely granola and nuts bar covered in chocolate. I love anything that’s covered in chocolate, chocolate is love; chocolate is life. 😎 Since it has granola it also ‘appears’ to be healthy (I know, it’s not), nothing to be guilty about. Spent the rest of the day browsing the internet (mostly Buzzfeed. 😛 ), hogging food and listening to music. A rainy day well spent.

I was going to ramble more, then realised how lengthy the post already is. Bye.

It’s okay to have a bad day

It feels weird when there’s no reason to feel down, but you do. Maybe things have happened in the last few days or weeks and you think you have forgotten them, but turns out they are still there at the back of your mind. Perhaps, it is these things that ruin your day.

Every individual has their own set of worries, but obviously our own problems seem a lot worse than others’. Some have abusive parents; some oppressed by bullies; some suffer from financial insecurities, there are innumerable problems people go through. One doesn’t know what the other faces. Some are excellent in hiding their issues, while some react violently. It is difficult to go through an entire day when your mind is clouded by issues, either you snap at others at the most silly things or you bottle up everything and cry at the end of the day. I belong to the latter.

There are some unfortunate ones amongst us who have no one to share their thoughts with. It is tormenting when you have to keep everything within yourself, it is during these moments when you wish there was someone you could confide into, someone who won’t misuse your trust. Some of us may have even confided into someone, turns out they either never cared, or were actually glad you were going through all that crap.

Life throws lemons at all times, it depends on us how we deal with it. There’s one thing to always remember – we have to go through the entire thing to reach the end. Perhaps a situation seems very difficult right now, but once we are done with it, we realise what lessons it taught us. There’s always a solution to a problem, but what tests our patience is the time it takes to find the solution. There’s always a reward for the patience.

It’s okay to have a bad day, it’s okay to be upset, but in the end you have to stand up and fight your fears.

Keeping a diary is the best thing ever

DSC_0526.jpg

I have been writing diaries since I was a 6th grader. That was perhaps one of the best habits I had developed. Started off with a cute little pink diary which came with a useless lock. I believe my mom always wanted to know what ‘secrets I had kept, but I think she never went through it (I really hope she didn’t).

That girlish diary with BRATZ on the cover is now a laughing riot for me. The pages only consisted of my daily banters with friends and family, which hardly make sense now. I recall a lot pages being dedicated to one monotonous thing – how much I hated my parents. They basically tried to control their pre-teen brat, but the brat just considered them to be jailers. The next topic which covered a huge proportion was about my crushes. It’s funny how I had at least 2 crushes every year. When I look at their pictures on Facebook, it makes me wonder exactly what made me fall for them. (Oh, that stupid lil teen heart!) To sum it up, my choices have been horrendous.

The diary of the pre-teen and teen now lies at the back of my cupboard. I stopped writing for almost a year out of sheer laziness. But, it was then I realised how much writing a diary comforted me. There were certain things in life which weren’t meant to be shared and keeping them within me was tormenting. Thankfully, I discovered the concept of online diaries. It was nothing less than a boon. Since I spend most of my time online (not just entertainment, for educational requirements as well. 😛 ), this was the perfect thing for me.

I opened an account and started writing in my brand new online diary. I have been maintaining the virtual diary since 2012 (WHOA!). Even though I don’t get the time to write everyday, I try to write about the important events of my life. But it is mostly filled with rants. I rant a lot. LOL.

Maintaining a diary was one of the best decisions I made, and I’m proud of it. I hardly made good decisions during my teens years, so yeah, I deserve a gold medal for this.
