The Big “May” Update

Hey, Guys!

How are you all doing? I haven’t published a post in quite a while; 3 plus weeks to be precise. I have been giving myself grief for not being punctual with my posts. I’m sorry for not following up with my posts. But, there’s a lot of exciting news from my end 😀

Today, I’m going to list out the major events that took place this past month. As the days (and weeks) go by, I’ll publish more in-depth posts regarding each piece of awesomeness that has happened and will continue to happen.

Without much ado, here are the most exciting things that happened in May 2017.

Survive

It’s half past seven,

As light seeps in to the room,

Rays of sunshine enter,

Through lace rimmed curtains.

————————————————

This sudden intrusion,

Makes her stir in her sleep,

A second later,

She turns her body,

First to the left,

Then to the right,

As consciousness,

Waits on standby,

For the right moment,

To seize her mind.

Daily Struggle 

She was like a drowning person, flailing, reaching for anything that might save her. Her life was an urgent, desperate struggle to justify her life. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer

I fight a long and tiring battle everyday. It is exhausting. It leaves me physically ill. It makes me feel weak. 

By the end of it I am left vulnerable and exposed. 

Sometimes, I just want to blank everything out. Other times, I want to grab an eraser and wipe away this existence. During those rare moments of utter defeat, I just want to be invisible.

Seeking Clarity Amidst Chaos

It’s been six months since I quit my job and returned home. So far, it’s been an up and down ride.

On the positive front, I’m healthy and mostly free of illness, I’ve lost 10 kg since June, my bestie & I have become super close and I finally started this blog.

On the negative front, there were a lot of fights at home, depression struck again and my dad & I no longer speak to each other.

It has definitely been an interesting ride.

​Love On My Mind

“Omnia vincit amor; Et nos cedamus amori – This Latin saying is among my favourite phrases. What does it mean? It roughly translates to, ‘Love conquers all; Let us too, yield to love.’

Love is that magical, mystical, warm, fuzzy feeling that many of us have experienced at least once in our lives. In fact, we are surrounded by love on a daily basis. From movies to books, quotes to poetry, photographs to letters, love overflows amidst us. 

I for one am a complete romantic. I love romantic movies; cue ‘A Walk To Remember’, ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’, ‘OK Kanmani’ and ‘Thattatin Marayathu.’ I swoon over those magical first kisses. I day dream about those perfect movie proposals. I even waltz alone to the soundtracks from these movies. 

In short, I’m a big fan of romance, even though I have none in my life.

Musically Inclined 

Music is the strongest form of magic ~ Marilyn Manson 

I’ve always found comfort in two things – music and the ocean. 

There is no music more soothing to my ears than the symphony of waves crashing against the rocks. 

My love for the ocean is something that I’ve cherished since childhood. 
Another great love of my life is music. 

I’m a 90s child. I grew up blasting ‘Who let the dogs out‘, ‘Oops I did it again‘, ‘I want it that way‘ and ‘Made in India‘ on the stereo system. 

I fell in love with the melodies of Tamil & Hindi music of that era. 

Britney Spears was my favourite pop artist. I was also in love with boy bands, namely the Backstreet Boys and Blue. 

The nineties were an awesome musical era to grow up in.
