Bag and effect

I just realized what wonders little things can do...

I take with me the bag my cousin had gifted me, and what happens? I get to sit down and have things brought to me, I get treated to dinner by JP :) He also told me later that my shoes matched my bag! (he couldn't believe I had p-i-n-k shoes :P)

SS, M and SM loved the bag, and K has got me something from Delhi (which my aunt says will go with the bag!)

And anyway, I think I'll carry this bag around for a bit more, and see what happens :)

I thought I'd do a kinda summing up year-end post, and even had a bit of it thought out, but I seem to have forgotten it already. Anyway, wish you all a great year ahead...

A loveletter

You're on my mind all the time. It doesn't matter where I am, or with whom, you're always somewhere at the back of my mind.

They say that some love stories begin when eyes meet. I don't really know how ours began. When I first heard you, something appealed to me, and I was hooked. I didn't do anything about it, as I thought it was merely a passing fancy. It was only when you actually entered my life a few years later that I realized that we were linked together by Fate.

I'd been going on and on about you, but it still took some time for me to convince my folks that I was serious.

The first time we came into contact, I went into seventh heaven and I felt as if I'd been born just to experience the ecstasy of the moment. It felt just right, and I couldn't bear the thought of leaving. I couldn't wait to get back to you on the morrow.

Alas, circumstances took you away from my life, and I've been missing you ever since.

Loving you has made me "unusual" and at times "weird" to people. A lot of my friends asked me why I couldn't have made a simpler choice. But I am who I am, and I wouldn't be the same without my love for you.

Not knowing whether we'd ever be together made me try an alternative, but the passion just wasn't there. Despite PM's encouragement, I couldn't make much progress, and I'm reluctant to even reconsider the option. And well, it never did feel as good as it was with you, and I realized that my friends were better suited for it than I.

You've become almost an obsession, and I've finally convinced my folks that my love for you isn't just a temporary phase, and that we need to be re-united. I've been saving up for the occasion and dreaming of it.

I can't wait for the day when you'll be mine, when I come home and find you waiting...

Awaiting you,

Yours longingly,

(Update : My dear drum kit, looks like it'll be a while before we get together... Awaiting that day and hoping it dawns soon...)

Christmas ramblings

Last week, I was told that I was good and "very sweet". I'd been riding on it until I heard today that I was "weird" and "amazing" :) I've also been told that I defy labels...

I'm yet to find out for sure what I am. Maybe someday I'll know...

On an unrelated note, I've just started learning Macedonian, and so far it's been good. I'm just hoping it'll be something I stick to, at least long enough for it to get internalized. What with my innate laziness looming large everywhere, I can only hope for the best.

And I had a great Christmas this year, with KM, RS, JP and I having lunch together. It was a reunion of sorts after nearly two and a half years, and finally all of us were at the same time at the same place without having to rush. Some pizzas, some pasta, some nostalgia, some anecdotes, some advice (relationship and academic!) and much pep-talk (aimed at me) later, we went our separate ways (after deciding that we should do it again someday).

I feel like writing some more, but my eyelids are growing heavier by the minute. (I told my granny I'd finish the food, and it was only as I was halfway through my dinner that I realized how deep the vessel had actually been and how much food I'd actually undertaken to have! As if that weren't enough, my grandpa reminded me that there was more food for me at home... My stomach, for one, will be working overtime tonight)

Merry Christmas.

Another brief update

Just a brief update...

Been a bit busy of late, what with Diwali and the entire family coming together, then catching a cold and maintaining it through my Chennai trip (and even now!)...

Anyway, I've gone bonkers yet again, and PM is providing invaluable assistance by encouraging me to act upon it. And I think I just might!!!

And I've been feeling like a schoolgirl all over again. Only, every time I think "schoolgirl", what comes to mind is "the schoolgirl complexion" of Empress!

Plus, I haven't really read in ages! Imagine! (Cue sad mournful music and a moment to indulge in self-pity)

Anyway, the day's begun, and I must be off. More posts coming up, hopefully, and soon, again hopefully...

Have a good day, then....
