One day, when you look back, it will all make sense. The happenings, mishappenings. Your staleness and exuberance. Triviality and enormity of the events around you. It will all come rushing in as a huge palpable epiphany. However, this isn’t the time to seek sense. For now, angels in the sky hint: keep striding forward. Don’t wince. Smile if you may. Because one day, when you look back, you’ll find a million reasons to.
6:00 am. A lizard is crawling right on top of my wall. They creep me out in totality. For a moment, I thought may be we could turn friends…you know, staying in the same room and stuff! But neither one of us wants to make an effort. Happy in our own space. Anyway, I am at the brink of this weekend. The clock ticks 8 am and the dynamics would change. How strange is that? How rigid is the mind? Sticks to the notions and the set beliefs. If only I could mix Mondays with the Sun-Fun-Sundays!
I am a believer…not a cynic..would only hope for a better day ahead. So, cheers to you-better-work-your-ass-off Mondays! And I hope you guys have a great week ahead of you.
Yeah right….like I am a celebrity! 😀
I couldn’t muster up the energy so long, for this post. The thoughts kept running in my head like…if I am gloomy how could I write something happy. How would the joy reflect? These award nominations make me immensely cheerful and I decided I would step out of my slumber mood, go ahead and do it.
First and foremost, it was Rene who nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger award. You can just visit her blog and witness sunshine! She seems to me one energy packed person. Thank you for the award Rene…here are my answers to your quirky questions:
1.What is your favorite Stephen King novel? Why? If you don’t read his books, why not? What’s wrong with you? (Just kidding!)
I would say, I wasn’t acquainted with him so far. Yeah, probably something is wrong with me there and now that I have been enlightened on this, I am ordering his book, not out of obligation but because I enjoy ghost stories.
2.Do you chew gum? What is your favorite flavor/brand?
I do at times. Not for the taste but for how one’s mouth looks so cool when chewing it. :D. Bad-ass sorts. I like Boomer, they have it in India. As a kid, I used to collect tattoo stickers that came along with it.
3.Do you like rollercoasters? Wooden or steel?
I love rollercoasters. All kinds. They get me shit scared and I still go, all pumped up. Then I scream.
4.What is the longest stretch of time you have ever stayed awake? How were you feeling before you finally fell asleep?
I didn’t quite keep track of time. Normally, I cannot sleep if something is bugging me, if I am distressed. A recent turmoil kept me awake for two-three nights. Then the current went off and I had no option left but to sleep. I guess I felt tired. That would be the general feeling.
5.Have you ever watched a movie with your parents where you were embarrassed by something that came on-screen? How did you/they react?
Uhh it is super awkward every time that happens. Mostly I would be very smart in choosing the movie but sometimes you cannot help if suddenly the actor actress go bananas over each other and start making out like gorillas. I just look at the screen and pray it ends soon(and also make a mental note to see it later, alone!) 😀
6.Do you think that humankind will ever colonize in space?
I think that would happen, with the speed that we are advancing in Science. I would like to be alive to see it.
7.What is the most over-rated movie to ever be revered? Why don’t you like it?
I don’t quite like animated movies in general and there is always so much buzz surrounding them. I just don’t relate. I don’t hate them but yeah animations would be my answer.
8.Olive Garden: delicious not so fast Italian food, or restaurant that should be destroyed and never seen again?
I haven’t tried it yet. Sorry, might have to skip this question.
9.How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Oh..forty something…yeah I went ahead and roughly counted! I love them all.
10.Favorite movie with Bill Murray?
I guess Charlie’s Angels is his only movie that I have watched.
11.What is your favorite kid’s book? What do you like about it?
As a kid, my mom used to buy me a lot of fairy tales(she has pampered me a little too much). So all those stories with a damsel in distress and a prince coming up to her rescue, love brewing in between them, happily ever after endings, I loved them. Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow white….love them all!
There was another ray of sunshine falling on my block with nomination from Allison (allirae21). A very interesting and happy feely blog she owns, I must say. Do check it out! Thank you for nominating me and here are my answers:
1. What would be your dream job, if there were no obstacles in the way of you landing that job?
I have nothing huge in my mind, I would love to teach some day as a profession.
2. Where is your next vacation going to be? And if it’s not planned out yet, where are you hoping to go?
I am going to Goa very soon; it’s all beaches and I will be meeting my close pals. I am excited for this one! I love vacations. If I could surmise, I would say I earn only to go on vacations and to shop. :D.
3. What is your favorite season and why?
Winters. The chill. The shivers. The warmth of woollen clothes. The fun of having ice cream in winters! And I think winters are quite romantic too.
4. What was the last movie you watched?
It was a pathetic Hindi movie, Hero, yeah pathetic would suffice. My friend dragged me into it. Yeah, I get dragged along often.
5. What is your favorite go-to snack?
French fries. M lovin’ it! 🙂
Ain’t it bursting awards or what?! This kind-hearted soul, nimz, nominated me for the Brotherhood of the bloggers award. Brotherhood is a powerful term and I love the bonding it emanates. Sometimes my friends call me bro! 😀 Thanks for considering me nimz, here are my answers:
1.What according to you is a miracle? Have you experienced any?
Miracles….i think nature in itself is an absolute miracle. I mean, look around and you will be spellbound.
2.What you think is your best quality?
I care. I care a lot. I think that is a good as well as harmful quality.
3.Are you someone who reacts spontaneously or some one who will take a step after thinking twice and thrice?
Spontaneous. I don’t put much thought. I do things I like, go on my instincts. I do fiddle while deciding but then if it’s meant to be done, it’s done.
4.Have you came across any life changing moment? What is it?
Seeing myself living as an adult is a life changing moment. I was never up for it. I learnt in tiny strides. Still doing.
5.Describe yourself in a word.
