There are times in our lives when we wish we could be alone in a swarm of people. And then there are times when you wish there would be somebody to talk to. Any person, who could just sit next to you, physically or even virtually through a chat box. Today is one of those days when I have none. It is times like these when I wish I had a dog or even a cat. You know, just to have some kind of living being around me. Virtual lives are a great escape from your real life when you need it, but some times even they don't quite cut it. Books are a great escape. But when you have to nothing to return to, they don't exactly qualify as an exciting retreat. I'm probably making myself miserable thinking about the possibilities and feeling sorry for myself.

Of course, tomorrow is a whole new day. I might have a hangover of these feelings, or I might laugh at my own absurdity. This is exactly when I need Amma to tell me how ridiculous I'm being and throw me headfirst into reality.

But, tomorrow will be different day. I just know it.


Slouchy Sunday

You know there are times when you have a trillion things to do and you just want to shrug it off just yet?

There are chores to be done. From ones as important as home work to something as mundane as tackling an overflowing laundry basket. But today is one of those days when the obsessive to-do-list-tackler in me wants to take a break. (Despite having just returned from an extended vacation)
Today is one of those days when I just want to sit by the window while sipping on tea and reading a book that does not require much processing in the head. And I'm going to do just that.

The world can be tackled on a Monday morning with a big cup of coffee and a mean spirit.
