When people say that they want to go climbing with me, I actually believe them.

Today I swam 10 laps, actually make that 11 (I was tricked into doing 11), in the small Catholic Club swimming pool. I also cycled a stretch of 10kms after that. Imagine that, for someone who hates 1) Cold water 2) Exercise

I share this oh so exciting news with my sister who looks down her nose disdainfully at me and indicates that this really isn't a big deal. (She just ran 10kms in an hour this morning)

Looks like we're turning into a couple of enthu cutlets.

Category 1: My favourite kind of cutlet
Category 2: Getting stronger

I understand. I wish I didn't have to acknowledge that I did.
My sister was talking about words peculiar to Indians.
Here are my favourites. Peculiar to a 6km radius from the center of the Universe.
-Amma Potey
-Aunty Shanti
-Enthu cutlet
-Sidey/Super sidey
-Sad, very sad
-Cancel that
-What and all
-What for me?

When I said I was light years ahead of you,
I meant it.

Maybe we aren't so far apart anymore.
I think existentialists and great philosophers have too much time on their hands.
They should get out and do some real work or watch a movie.

That being said, developing coordinate geometry does count as work and I also kind of think I have a crush on Descartes 
I find things beautiful.
And you'd imagine that everybody else would see it too.

Nobody does.

New Boy

I think this person has an alarming capacity to talk,
An alarming capacity to listen.
You know, you don't have to buy into everything you read
Or what people say.

That's what you have a mind for.
A rational, thinking, emotional mind.

I'm not even sure why I care enough to say this.

As it turns out, the key to getting more hours into your day
IS to sleep less.

Not enough hours in the day.
Not enough days in the week.

One of those days when you want to escape into your head.
Realizing you can't escape from where you already are.

I'm grumpy, happy, angry and pleased, all at the same time. All for different reasons.
Category: Secret things in my mind, secret things in my bag
When everything's rushed and people speak like there's a motor attached to their mouth and flit over to the next thing before you've even completed your sentence.
I like to speak slowly. As if I have all the time in the world.

I never want to be that woman.

Quand le moment vient, faut sauter la barrière sans hésiter.

She said that the basis of their relationship was trust.
She spoke bravely saying that it was.

A kiss on the neck.
Not hers.
She'll never know.
I'd forgotten what it feels like to be jealous.
I see it control me.
There was nothing I could do about it but stand back and watch as it destroyed everything I meant to be.

I'd like a sacrificial goat.


Box it up.
Keep everything in.
Close everyone out.


The month for burning bridges.
Three people bothered me last week.
Two I mentally cut off without a second thought.
The third, the albatross round my neck.

I've also been informed that Alpha Males are a myth.
Like I'd take the word of some person over Wikipedia.

I get super irritated when people understand the exact OPPOSITE of what I'm saying.
I mean, how bad could my communication skills be?

Eg.Me: You see that dog on the left?
 Other person: Right??
I'm not saying they're dumb.
Ok, that's what I'm saying.
I never apologized.
How could I?
I wasn't wrong.

Did you know that you could be wrong
And swear you're right
My Arshad left town.
Bummer :/

Update: He came back.
 This is getting old.

Eventually, they stop bothering. As they should.

Maya (Age 4)

She looks at this big tear in her night dress and is a bit annoyed, thinking that Megan, her sister's, done it.
She then shrugs, resigns herself and says, "Let it be. Lot's of fresh air has to come in."

It feels slightly wrong to be happy.

How difficult could this be?

-Make jewelry
-Watch movies

I feel like having my own house and some green tea with honey.
My Arshad is in town :)

Mood: Happy
Out of sight is out of touch.
All the way is far enough.

You could be wrong and still be right.
So many things to savour.
