Not a meet cute. A modern day dating app match. Two hours of texting and let’s meet. We hit a pub for lunch. Order a pizza, chicken with cheese, two pints. Smokes. My first cigarette, two, three, five. A single day, single date, all and everything. Roaring sexual tension. Your work is fascinating, you take … Continue reading from a long time ago
“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!"

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

*9.49 pm* Just had Pizza for dinner so we’re good. Last Sunday, I stepped out of my house after two months.

So, … Continue reading Back to my roots
*12.43 pm* I love Decembers. The cold winds, cozy sleep under the blanket, the warmth of hoodies, holidays and the party mood, hot chocolate at any time of the day and conclusions.

*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.

*06.15 pm* I really need to vent out today. Last week I bought my domain (finally!), now I just have to figure out the hosting, transfer, etc. Basically, the tech stuff which I'm clueless about and don't want to end up spending more than I should. So here's a public announcement - Developers Wanted (preferable … Continue reading what am I even doing?
*5.43 pm* Truly delighted and proud of my cooking skills. Its hereditary, guys - I make awesome food. It is quite difficult to write after a gap (of even 15 days).

*7.02 pm* Last few days have been quite disturbing. Some lessons, some beautiful moments and a crazy puke-filled night. Last week, I took an important decision about my career and it has resulted in some (serious) repercussions. Argh! No point building up the suspense. I quit my job. One of the many reasons to do … Continue reading What a March!
