The cat’s big move, ii

“Oh hello, Mrs Sprightley!” “Oh hello, Sugar!” “Would you like some tea?” “Yes! With a drop of lemon in it.” “Oh! And something to go with it?” “Some cookies, please.” “Cookiesssss? Lovelyyyyyy!" Back in December 2020, when I was still in Mumbai, Komal and I would enact this famous exchange from K3G in a British … Continue reading The cat’s big move, ii

Turning 26!

It isn’t as incredible as they make it sound. *11.38 am* cloudy & gloomy; Current Month - January, Feels like - June.

A jack of all trades

*11.30* in the middle of an extremely busy and productive work week. Jack of all trades, master of none. This proverb has never made sense to me. I have always found it boring to be a master of one when you can be a jack of all. I have been a jack of all trades … Continue reading A jack of all trades

april’d away in bed

*1.50 pm* typing away some blabber whilst sitting at the dining table. Mau is not very happy about my presence, she keeps giving me cold stares. Last night I had a conversation with a friend about how laziness attracts negativity and that inspired to finally get my ass off the bed and write. For the … Continue reading april’d away in bed
