A break…

The weekend is here! A long weekend indeed. Oh the joy in knowing that you don’t have to work on Monday! But with joy, sometimes comes guilt. I feel guilty about not doing anything productive on my days off. There are times when I feel that I have wasted a holiday by not accomplishing something….

In a box…

A box on a box is still a box… So what if it is made of block… Mine has a window with a open view… Sit there sometimes with my morning brew… I see the light from the sun… Later bake alive as if in an oven… I seek to escape and go away… Only…

Rest…

Rest for the road ahead is long… Rest so you can hear the song… Find yourself a cozy place… Find yourself a safe space… Take a moment to catch your breath… Take another to unburden the weight… Close your eyes under the sky… Close the doors to the thoughts that lie… Remember the moments that…

The question of Karma…

‘What goes around comes back around.’ But does it really though? I have my doubts, while most of my friends are firm believers. One of them, who usually talks in bumper stickers, repeats this phrase as it if it were a prayer. ‘What goes around comes back around.’ According to my bumper sticker girl, the…

Truth about habits….

I have this habit of making decisions and taking up stuff, doing it amazingly well and then getting bored, and then moving on. It is not necessarily a bad thing, as I tend to finish most of the assignments I take up. The problem, however, arises when this tendency affects the progress of any my…

My Lifeblood…

In the light of the day, it follows me like a shadow… At night with the moon, its howls have an echo… It is as beautiful as it is dark… Stronger than the road covered in tar… It flows through me and still has no trace… It gives me meaning and has no name… ‘Purpose’…

The endless scrolling…

Everyday when I am done with work, the first thing I do is grab my phone. With no set intentions about what to do, I start opening random apps just to see what is out there. I go from checking my messages to social media to shopping apps and back. And day after day, whatever…

A 10-minute routine…

I have come to the conclusion that cleaning your house is a scam. No matter what you do, it just piles up. Dishes, clothes, to-do items, and everything else. So, from today onwards, instead of spending hours on weekends getting my stuff sorted, I will spend just 10 minutes everyday to deal with one thing…

Lemon and lime..

I never knew exactly how dehydrated I was till my mum pointed out how flaky my lips looked. I just thought my new lip balm was crap. Turns out sipping water throughout the day isn’t enough if you are not having enough of it. Just what I needed. I guess even a gallon wouldn’t be…

Clock…

It has been a year since I walked on sand.. I remember the wind conjured by a paper fan… Now, I sit in a tower misplaced… Just to have my mind in a constant chase… ‘When will this end? Why won’t it stop?’ If only the answers had learnt how to barge… But nothing I…
