This year on April 27th, I turned 24. It’s scary, because I feel closer to 30. I remember I heard it from a celebrity once who said; your 20’s are like shopping for your personality. You keep trying different things, figuring out what works until you can find the right fit. Truer words have never been said. Here I am, and I feel like I … Continue reading LESSONS I GATHERED AT 24
These are the classic Indian films for me that I have watched multiple times, and that you should give a try, if you have not watched them already. You will notice that most of these are Sharukh Khan’s movies – so yes, I love him KABHIE KHUSHI KABHIE GHAM I have watched this movie, not less than ten times before, but I still listen and … Continue reading 7 MUST WATCH INDIAN MOVIES OF ALL TIME
There are soooooo many awesome Korean dramas out there, amazing stories, beautiful cinematography, picturesque backgrounds, beautiful interiors and wonderful casts. I tell you, if the story doesn’t hook you then just the pretty backgrounds would keep your eyes glued to the screen. Also, I have binged many other dramas before, but I specifically mentioned these because I could watch these a second and a third … Continue reading 5 KOREAN DRAMAS TO BINGE WATCH ON NETFLIX
The book, although a highly informative read, I found it to be focusing mainly on a group of individuals in the highly developed world.

I got attached to Santiago.
From the boy he was, to the man he became. I was part of it all, every step of his journey. You can sense the maturity changes in the protagonist as the book progresses. As a reader, I felt a part of every process.

This why I keep on doing challenges, they keep me grounded for a max of three days then they die a silent death. Anyways, I … Continue reading PROBLEMS WITH SOCIAL MEDIA ?
I don’t know what to say about 2018. It was a passing storm. It wheezed by and I didn’t notice. It felt almost zombie like and robotic. But I always get to learn things and I guess that is a good thing; I got to re establish my place and realize who I was as a daughter, a friend , a sister , a girl … Continue reading LESSONS 2018
