I wanted everyone to like me. I wanted to make friends fast.
In middle school and high school, this task becomes even more difficult, because most people were already in groups. You can’t barge into groups because that would ruin their relations and the general hierarchy.
You must be thinking that I’m overthinking.
Trust me, I’m not.
Rather than deviating to lesser topics.
I know you’re listening.
So, please respond?
Because in case you’re wondering
I understand some of our professors have bad technological senses, but does that stop us from making their lives even more difficult?
We humbly refuse co-operation. We make it more difficult. We play around with our classes and professors.
I don’t think they’re enjoying this either.
Normal strategies aren’t working for some couples who aren’t quarantined together. It’s slightly difficult but communication is key in such times.
Even so, how do I talk to a person when the person herself doesn’t know how to talk about it?
Although, it is slightly scary. To see people panic and buy extensively.
Seeing it on the news or on social media, as other people rushed towards supermarkets is very different from living it in person. I could see fear in their eyes as milk, pulses and vegetables were being rationed and there were long long lines to the cashier.
Frankly, we don’t.
It’s sad to note that we don’t even consider the pandemic a “big deal.”
India is a vast country. We are a diverse, with many cultures and ideologies. Not everyone follows the same thing from North to South to East to West to even each of the 29 states or regions between the states.
I miss my cat.
I miss my time with my friends in Delhi, my roommates- Ryland and Owlie.
I miss spending time with my girlfriend.
The best medicine for a viral infection which affects your upper respiratory tract is the sun. Living in a country close to the equator, it’s a blessing.
New pet project… Oops, Part 3.
To my internal monologues and to all those who are affected by those infamous decisions.
for some reason, I Googled Indian proverbs. It’s funny how different it sounds or feels in English and the way I hear it being used in my household. I enjoyed going through it. It reminded me of some good old memories.
It’s a weird feeling, to feel motivated from your own memories.
I had a consultation with Meredith almost a month back. That was after another whole month of thinking about it. I had Googled her. She looked like a sweet lady, mid 40s, someone who wouldn’t judge, someone in front of whom I don’t have to worry about my image.
She was already with a patient when I arrived and I remember trying to breathe in the waiting area and convincing myself it’s alright to just go for the consultation and get it over with. If I had applied for a slot in her busy schedule, I should at least walk into her room or office or whatever.
