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.

Dealing with negativity

SplitShire-2426.jpg

Sometimes the atmosphere around you can really bring you down. The problem with negativity is that you don’t know from where to start and how to put it down in words. Should it be overly personal? Will it offend anyone? I don’t know.

Everyone has various issues in their personal lives, probably enough to ruin their mood. But what makes it worse is when there’s nothing positive in the news. Turn on the television, read the newspaper or any online news blog, it’s all about doom and gloom. It makes me wonder to what has the world come to? All we get to read these days are about political upheavals, corruption, murders, terrorism, poverty and every other thing that makes you question the humankind. It is necessary to know what’s happening around you, but sometimes it’s a bit too much.

After a tiring day  I usually scroll through social media on my phone whilst laying on the bed hoping to come across something that will cheer me up. But all I get to see are news about doom and gloom, tons of click-bait articles and friends showing off their amazing lives expecting to boost their egos in the form of ‘likes’.  (I don’t understand how the number of likes can make a person reach cloud nine, but apparently it does. LOL)

These days logging into Facebook or any other social networking site annoys me. Instead, I spend my free time talking to a few close online friends who make me realise that the world still has some nice people. They help you out more than your real life friends or relatives could have ever helped you, stay by your side during your toughest times. It’s been almost 4 years since we have been together and perhaps they know me more than I will ever know myself. They say, if a friendship lasts 7 years, it lasts for a lifetime. I really hope our friendship stands the test of time. But my best friend has to be music. Music can get you through anything and everything. Also, when you’re in a situation where you don’t want to talk to anybody but eavesdrop, headphones become your BFF. 😛

I started the post in a very depressing tone but it got diverted to a completely different track. Typical me.
