Notes from my Journal

Friday, November 11, 2016
Time- 3.30pm
Location- at work
Yep, not a very productive day so far, things are moving at a snail’s pace. I just realized how in most of my blogs, I always mention of having a “slow day” at work. But the funny truth is, that’s very unusual. It may convey the impression that I have plenty of free time on my hands and I am always writing down blogs while working but the reality is I don’t get spare time very often and when I do, I don’t let it go waste. I jot down my thoughts, opinions, and ongoing ideas whenever I get a chance. And then after getting home, I assemble them all in one presentable essay and boom…it’s ready to publish! It’s not a one day affair. I take my own sweet time and this modus operandi could vary anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks. There are days when I feel this fire in my belly to write something but my mind is completely blank. No matter what I do or how hard I try to crack my brain, I can’t drop a line, and then there are times when my psyche is overflowing with ideas.

Sunday, November 13, 2016
Time- 5:00 am
Location- at home, in my cozy bed
No, I don’t rise and shine so early on a Sunday. Veritably, I still have to visit my slumber land. I’ve been watching random shows on Netflix all night. I am so energetic right now that I could run a marathon, gosh what did I eat for dinner last night? Never thought a plain tomato soup could have such a negative repercussion on melatonin. Just kidding. Since I am insomnious right now, I thought I’d continue from where I left on Friday! So I bought a dream catcher few months ago. I had always wanted one, especially after its mention in so many books, and watching it on tv shows. I’m unsure if they actually work or is a man-made supposition. By work I mean it’s believed that dream catchers trap rough, icky nightmares in its web and allow only good dreams to pass. As per an article on, “dream catchers have a broader meaning than just the legends related to dreams. Dream catchers are totems that represent good energy and help to neutralize bad energy — whether you’re awake or asleep! They serve a protective purpose”. Let me know your thoughts about dream catchers. For now, I hold a neutral viewpoint.

Time- 3.30 pm (same day)
Location- in my dining area, sitting on a breakfast table, having milk and cookies (my all-time favorite).
You can never go wrong with milk and cookies. Choco chip cookies are closest to my heart but I don’t gorge on them on regular basis, only on my cheat days. Speaking of cheat days, at this time I’m trying to follow a healthy diet so I avoid as much carbs as I can. Keyword- TRYING! Believe me, the struggle is real. Anyway, let’s not get sidetracked. So I don’t even remember when and how I fell asleep in the morning, the worst part is I woke up after 3 hours, like seriously, thanks to stupid internal alarm for not letting me enjoy my day off. I remember how I was dreaming at work on Friday of sleeping until noon on a Sunday but I woke up fresh as a daisy at 8. Took a shower and had some errands to run. Finally I’m done for the day and now I’ve the entire evening and night to me. Today, I don’t have any quotes to share, stories to tell, and travel experience to talk about. Today, I just want to exchange views on how unanticipated events or things take place in our lives. Today, I unexpectedly heard from an old friend after a very-2 long time. I was startled yet pleased when I saw the email in the notifications on my phone. I was so amazed that it took me a while to believe that I had actually received an email from that person. Instantly, the good time spent and the great memories came flooding back to my mind, and made me gleeful. It’s said every person you meet comes with a purpose and they leave once the reason is served. It doesn’t matter how long they stay in our lives. Some are meant to leave early and some are meant to stay forever. I firmly believe that cosmos hold the best interests for us. We all are in a contrastive niche in our lives. Often, we preach good things to others but when it’s our time, we lose all rationality and the same doctrine becomes hard to practice. Life can’t be defined in an uncomplicated, simple ballad. It is, in fact, a subjective experience. These mystical episodes make us who we are. Everything is beyond our control. We do not know what might happen another minute. We make plans, dream of doing and achieving certain things but in the end, it all boils down to predestined events. This is another topic of controversy because I’ve heard people believing in creating their own destiny. In the end, I trust life is very unpredictable. It has its own set of events. At every step, it can either surprise us or blow us with shocks.
PS – my email had a special note for me and it’s too proper that I had to share it, “Believe in Yourself. We all are born with unique talents.”

  2. I am kind of jealous of your writing abilities. Yes, we all have our highs and lows while writing, but I have been trying to write for quite a while and I have not been able to do it, yet.

    Yes, we all are born with unique talents. Your talent seems to be writing well, among other things I am sure, which I will search in other posts of yours.

    P.S. And I guess that email was from a forever friend. And, Great blog, btw.
