GA Day (Day 7)

Communication. It's the first thing we really learn in life. Funny thing is, once we grow up, learn our words and really start talking the harder it becomes to know what to say. Or how to ask for what we really need. At the end of the day, there are some things you just can't help but talk about. Some things we just don't want to hear, and some things we say because we can't be silent any longer. Some things are more than what you say, they're what you do. Some things you say because there's no other choice. Some things you keep to yourself. And not too often, but every now and then, some things simply speak for themselves. -Meredith Grey

List #7 (Christmas 2015!)

It's finally here. Christmas. One of my favourite holidays of the year. Now, I'm not a Christian but Christmas isn't just about religion. It's about togetherness, and having fun with all the people you hold dear. Frankly, I like Winters more than I Summers. (Even though we don't get to wear shorts or go to the pool and stuff). I'm a Winter baby. (January 27th is my day) and I think that's another reason I love Christmas. Even though we don't celebrate it much where I'm from, I like to think someday I'll live somewhere where it is celebrated. (Don't get me wrong, I love Hindu festivals too and I enjoy celebrating them.) 

I had a dream the other day. I was in New York City. It was Christmas time and I was with someone (who was it? I can't remember for the life of me but I'm 89% sure it was a guy) ice skating at the Rockefeller Centre. VERY CLIQUE. Then we roamed around, looking at the shop displays and it started to snow. It was amazing…

My Headphones #2

Note: I know there is a lot of One Direction but they're going on break so we won't get anything from them for 18 months and their new album is actually and genuinely great, so they deserve being in this top 10.  




1. Wolves - One Direction 
"In the middle of the night when the wolves come out Headed straight for your heart Like a bullet in the dark One by one, I gotta take them down We can't run and hide, ain't goin' down without a fight"

2. Would I Lie To You? (Cover) - Che Chesterman (Original by Charles & Eddie)
"Look into my eyes Can't you see they're open wide Would I lie to you baby Would I lie to you Don't you know it's true Girl there's no one else but you Would I lie to you baby Would I lie to you"


3. Marvin Gaye - Charlie Puth ft. Meghan Trainor

Hey people of the internet! How are you today? I hope you're well and that everything is going for you. And if that's not the case then I hope you know, it's gonna be okay. 

Well, that was not the starting I had imagined... Take two?

First post in December, 12th day of the 12th Month! *realizes*... the 12th month...wow. This year went by really quick to be honest. I still can't process that it's going to be 2016 on calendars in 19 days. Like how is this even a thing? 19 days and 2015 will be just another year that went past. Just another date in the old new diaries (does that make sense?) that we keep to doodle in because we never got around to actually using them in 2015. 




But you know what I think about this year? It changed me completely. I'm so much more confident in myself now. So much more open to new ideas and new people. One thing is strange though, looking back at my birthday pictures from Jan 2015, and to imagine what my birthday will look like next mont…

Are We In The Clear Yet?

I don't even know where I'm going with this to be honest but I feel like I need to write something or else I'll just sit in my corner eating ice cream and watching re runs of Pretty Little Liars. 



So lately...no...um...in the past couple of weeks, I've been going though the entire cycle of emotions. I start the day happy, then go into Yoda mode (preaching and shiz), then into this crazy fun chick, then into someone who thinks about every stupid thing she's ever done, then happy again and sometimes being an emotional wreck also finds it's way into the cycle. I don't know how this works but that's how almost every single day goes. I'm not complaining here because there is nothing to complain about. Everything is going my way, great friends (with the occasional ones who suck me into their mess), loving parents, and even school is hella good. But then why the hell am I just fine not hella good? 

Let me update you on what's been happening:

GA Day (Day 6)

Pain, it comes in all forms. The small twinge, a bit of soreness, the random pain, the normal pains that we live with every day. Then there's the kind of pain you can't ignore. A level of pain so great that it blocks out everything else; makes the rest of your world fade away until all we can think about is how much we hurt. How we manage our pain is up to us. Pain. We anaesthetize, ride it out, embrace it, ignore it... and for some of us, the best way to manage pain is to just push through it. you just have to ride it out, hope it goes away on its own, hope the wound that caused it heals.There are no solutions, no easy answers. You just breathe deep and wait for it to subside. Most of the time pain can be managed, but sometimes the pain gets you when you least expect it, hits way below the belt and doesn't let up. You just have to fight through, because the truth is you can't outrun it, and life always makes more. -Meredith Grey

My Headphones #1

Sooooo I know that I have been away for far to long but the truth is nothing really happened. Well, things did happen but I just didn't know how to put them in words. I know that this is a lame excuse but sometimes you just have to regroup and let things fall in their places. The truth is, I was happy. I am happy. Extremely. And when you are content, you have nothing to rant about. Back to the title, I thought of yet another string of posts that I'll be writing. "My Headphones". It's pretty literal. Each month I will tell you ten songs that I have been playing on repeat, I will link the video/lyrics video and write my favourite bit of the lyrics (mostly the chorus, duh.) so that you can get an idea of what it's about. Warning: They could be new releases or from years/months ago. So here goes.

The Longbottoms

This is not some life experience or an intellectual post. Just a rant about something that has been bothering me ever since I've been a potterhead. 

So as you might know, a lot of stuff from the books didn't make it into the movies, for example, Peeves, Voldemort's backstory, Harry's sassiness. But what bothers me the most is that they completely looked over the detailed story about the Longbottoms. The "fans" who have just watched the movies have so little knowledge about what Neville was going through. They just think that he's a kid who lives with his grandmother, no big deal. 

Well, I'm here to enlighten the lot of you. 



The Longbottoms were a part of the fight against Voldemort. They were one of the bravest people out there. But they got captured and when they refused to give up even the slightest bit of information, they were tortured into insanity. They didn't even remember their own son. That's why Neville lives with the Grandma. Big deal…
