Updates: Lets Catch up..

I've been gone for a while (quite a while) from here. Just excuse me for my absence. (just needed to blog away my sad thoughts elsewhere on the internet)  'cause this blog I've kept only for creative writing and my musings. i didn't want to mar this place by the short outbursts of frustrations that I've lately been flooding twitter with.

So, among other useless things I've been doing these past months is- catching up with Gossip Girl, Glee, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Fringe and The Pretty Little Liars. I'm also planning to start with Game of thrones and Doctor who.

Also i've stacked up my music library with songs from Coldplay (Paradise is my personal favorite), All time Low, Adele, One direction and Paramore.
The new song from All time Low is amazing!

I had also deactivated my facebook account for all these months which i only reacitivated yesterday (and had loads of fun, but i shall blog about it some other time).

October was total hectic madness with me volunteering and participating in my college tech-fest and at that time i wished it to be over soon but i ended up missing the chaos when it did. Sweet times. Then Diwali came and went and i got to spend some quality time with my family (and also to gorge on lots of sweets and snacks).

Meanwhile, I've been reading a lot (of classics). I read Jane Eyre and Tess of d'Urbervilles. I absolutely loved reading The Fountainhead. It has put into words what i had felt about this world all these years. It has left an impression in my mind that would remain for years to come. Right now, i'm half way through The Picture of Dorian Gray, it is interesting enough for the quotes and all Oscar 'Wildeness'. And simultaneously i'm also reading Jack Kerouac's On The Road and i'm just loving it. For someone like me who's been feeling a little 'confined' in my own life and situations, the words of experience of travelling like this are like paradise, to read them is oddly liberating and it feels like pure joy to travel through Sal Paradises eyes.
Apart from classics, i read Julian Barnes's The Sense of an Ending which you could complete in one sitting. it is a part memoir and was fun to read.

I've also been taking french classes. i have now completed Delf A1 and am halfway through A2 course. It certainly feels good to learn and do something because i want to and not because i need to. It makes me feel that i own my life, which is an awesome feeling, i tell you. I will appear for Delf A2 in February. (i am able to read children's literature in french now, it is interesting).

And Exams are round the corner again..... it was hard for me to realize but i did that in an engineering students life exams are always dogging them throughout the year. We don't have exams in the year, we have short span of times squeezed in between exams when don't have to think about studies. So, i'm gonna go back to my books now (academic, this time) but hopefully i'll also be around here to keep posting stuff.

Wish y'all a Happy December ahead!
