We all have a few advice that mattered to us as children but ones that we forgot as teen-adults and kept getting our butts kicked because of that. My one such advice was given to me by my sister. She used to tell me, “Look around. Learn from others. Their mistakes/failures/success/actions etc. You don’t have to do them all yourself. Learn from others. Whatever you want to do, believe in yourself.”

Specks of Stardust. That’s exactly what we are. We are nothing and we are everything…
Lose fear of Fear.
- I don’t want to live. What is there to live for?
- Not good enough, Big enough, strong enough, successful enough… ENOUGH! Will I ever be enough.
- Even I don’t know what I want and it’s driving me crazy, what should I do?
- The Universe is so big and there are so many people, I’ll never be noticed.
- I look like a scarecrow gone wrong. Look at her/him, they are so beautiful.
In the sea of our kind, we are all lone souls.
Awhile ago, I read about a lone Blue Whale. She is supposedly only one of her kind. She sends out messages at 52 Hertz and she has not been heard in last two years. Being a Blue Whale enthusiast I feel so helpless whenever I read about her. Scientists says whales change their call frequencies they don’t know the reason behind it but they think it’s because of the noise pollution created by our various kinds of ships.
52 Hertz Whale or World’s loneliest whale, that’s what they call her. When I think about her I feel like she is Alice, lost in the wonderland. This Alice is one of her kind and perhaps the most wonderful kind one can meet but alas, she is without a friend. She doesn’t have someone to listen to her calls and no one has replied her quiet echos yet. I wonder if she wants to be Alice at all. Just the thought is immensely painful. I really hope this Alice finds a friend or she already has according to this article. Please do listen to the audio of Alice. Some comments on the sound-cloud site says, “she seems lonely and sad.” I think she is hopeful. The recordings of her voice are quite old, the first one was recorded in early 1989s.
I rarely come across people who do not like quotes and for those that don’t like it, I wonder how they must feel when they find their social media feeds full of them. To be able to quote life in a few words is a major accomplishment in my opinion. To be able to say something which becomes a “quote”. WOW.
Quote word gains it origin somewhere around 16th century. Almost 5 centuries ago. What began as citation of texts or personal remarks slowly took form of fashion and the words began to spread in letters, notes, plays, ads, word-of-mouth etc. Slowly the medieval word kinda took over the world until making reference to others or citing a text or a person became a worldwide phenomenon by the 20th century.
Scroll down your feed on any social media and you will notice minimum ten quotes, yes even in blogging. I have an old notebook from my school times. It’s full of quotes and there are so many different types of marking. For example, three stars against an important quote, two against another, you get the idea. I recently read many posts containing quotes and loved so many of them. So I thought I’ll dedicate a post to quotes.
All of a sudden life seemed so different. Looking back, things have changed so much. She can’t go back to what she wanted. Changes came in like the ocean waves, slowly but steadily and she was too busy to notice.
Love. Was that it? If she didn’t love them all, would it be any different? Would she have taken the roads she wanted to take so dearly? People. Some, who broke her heart. Some who cared. Stayed.
Never knew life would change so fast. In ten years she can’t even tell the difference from where she began and where she has come. Ten years flew by in a blink. She had imagined herself elsewhere, how did she end up here?
Was she not willing to take the chances and move forward with herself? Being alone, is that what scares her? Looking back, she didn’t make much of a choice. Sweet talks and loved ones kept her in a cocoon of “what is good for her”. Who was to decide? Who is to say? if not her?
Tired by the shackles of love, she picked up her pen and began to write. Her pen is mightier than any sword. She began going on adventures she only dreamed about. Now, her love is fierce, in her eyes there’s a fire. She met a men, he knew her soul. She fell in love again. The fire in her soul grows stronger by the day.
Being loved for who she was, she became fearless. Like a phoenix, from the ashes of her old life, she was born again. Mighty as the phoenix, her flight has just began. She is the one people write poems and stories about.
When she sees a soul estranged and longing as she once was, she smiles. She whispers, “hang in there and someday, when you believe, you will be born too.”
I wish I had read more about making myself financially independent when I was in my early 20s. Financial hacks are not a waste of time. If you start planning your finances early in your 20s you will end up being one lucky chuck in your late 20s. One obvious thing is, being a 20 something, almost out of college (mind/heart still there)- the last thing you are thinking about is making yourself financially independent. Further studies, which job to apply for, how to lend the dream job, girlfriend/boyfriend etc are the topics keeping us busy. Plus, you don’t have a ton of money to invest. Good news is, you don’t need a ton of money to invest.
The biggest spending we do in our 20s is on, mobile phones, movies, eating out with buddies on weekend, smoking-drinking-pubs-bars etc. When I asked a youngster not to smoke he told me, “I’m developing a taste for life.” Uhuh? Really? Developing a taste for the cigarettes is only going to increase costs when you start earning. Don’t believe me? Read this article in Economics Times Wealth about the hidden cost of smoking: LINK
Every time you come in yelling that God damn “Rise & Shine!” “Rise & Shine!” I say to myself, “How lucky dead people are.”
I couldn’t agree more. Hate it when I am woken up in the morning. Hated it more when I was a kid because I was rushed to the school ASAP.

Hi everyone 🙂 So… Happy Earth Day. Planted a tree so far?I am writing this post in honor of The Earth Day. To be able to live here, we are so lucky aren’t we? But what are we doing to earn it?
We make a living. We earn. We sell our skills and talents as we get paid in return. Earth has offered us so much by birth but what are we doing to EARN the amazing resources the Mother Earth offers us?
International Earth Day began in the early 1970s by America. For obvious reasons it wasn’t a hot topic then. Now it’s a burning topic.
Years pass us by and we keep asking ourselves, “where has the time gone?” Time is absolute and he doesn’t like to be kept waiting unlike one’s boyfriend. It is almost mid April and three months of the year 2016 has passed us by. Hey, hi how are you doing? How’s your New Year Resolutions doing? How’s you treating yourself? You can answer this in the comment section of this post, please do, it would be fun to know.
After one week of awesome time in Goa I am back home and back to my job. I loved April so far. Since March end and closure of the financial year I have been entirely away from blogging. Good for me, I am back now. My mind is aching to give voice to the thoughts I have been having. I have tons of books and manga to read. I want to read and devour lots of blogs I have been putting off. I want to binge watch anime/movies. I have so much to do. Good thing, I do not make resolutions or they would be in tatters.
How did it go for me till now? Ummmm… Let’s see:
- Blogging is a bug and I can’t get rid of it. I want to write as bad as I want to read articles. Adventures, people, worldly matters, life, travel, books etc fight in my head to be written about first.
- Steadily becoming healthier.
- Planning a few adventures. Living for them.
- I am reading again. Not like read a novel in a month but read an entire novel in one sitting. Crazy reading, I am back.
- Had a day when I kept asking, “What a day. Is this destiny?” Still asking.
- Silence is golden.
- There’s no such thing as too much cheese. I LOVE CHEESE.
- Sky gives hope. Sun, Moon, Stars, Planes, Satellites, birds… Sky is full spectrum of life. Spectacular Sky.
- Writing. Trying to find my balance.
- Asking questions. (As usual. Roll eyes all you want!) :p
2016 is a year full of adventures and fun little moments. Difficult times are bound to come just as the great times. I am ready to embrace them both.
Live. Love. Laugh.
Take care pals.

No one could possibly be happy if they acted against their better judgment. And he who knows how to achieve happiness will do so. Therefor, he who knows what is right will do right. Because why would anyone chose to be unhappy?
