Long overdue but still not it

Life can be worse than you'd imagined it to be.
Or not :)
It all revolves around the time you take to get over things/your own thoughts. And ofcourse the time taken to let go of what crosses your mind more often than expected.

Sometimes you say the right things at the wrong time.
Does that even make any sense?

Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince.
Albus Dumbledore :)

We live in a place where honking is the mantra when you're driving a vehicle on the road.
Where education loan rates are actually higher than car loan rates.
Where pizza does end up reaching your doorstep faster than an ambulance!
Where the food rates are subsidized in the parliament to an extent that doesn't leave you in a position to compare it all with the price a common man pays, with the increasing variety in the types of taxes being levied!
But what's important, is to admit that 'we' are a part of all of this. Talking about it doesn't do anyone any good. But spreading the message, maybe close to nothing again. Acceptance is what's required. To be able to convert that acceptance into working on it in some form.

Delhi. The culture. The Shoshabaazi. It really is going to take some time for me to get used to it all and be willing to see the nice side of it. Seriously.

New Girl ~ The tv show. I like :)

Destiny.
Irrespective of whether you believe in it/fate or not.. If it were to be believed for a moment that it's fixed,
You do get to choose the way/journey to get to it but!

When the importance of weekends is truly understood by you.
Sleep deprivation.

A Beautiful Mind - The extraordinary movie :)
Based on a true story.

When the male to female ratio is less than 10:1 where you work... People can't stop going like O.o
And, let me mention, it really is disturbing!
#Seriously #MaybeTheDelhiEffectToo

The office life.
#EnoughSaid

So much in pieces still.
...

"Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."
"People find it easier to forgive others for being wrong than being right."

Words on shuffle mode

'Zindagi mein kuch kamao na kamao, kuch dost zaroor kama lena..'

When you miss a person who's sitting right next to you, not because the person's changed and you miss the old him/her.. But because this is another version of this person with additions that are new to you. Additions that haven't exactly changed him/her overall but have changed enough for you to want to drift apart yourself.
There is a difference. The new him/her or the renewed him/her.

When your day begins with the most unexpected replies from people! *sigh. And once again, the grass doesn't fail to seem greener on the other side!

When you move away by choice, not because you got tired of trying, or because the person's not worth the effort (not at all).. But because you know things are different and nothing can be done about it, really.

When your tears come out at the drop of a hat
The feeling of not wanting to exist
Just not wanting to exist
The only thing that keeps me going is the fact that I just need some answers in life. That's all. And once I've got those, I'll be in a much better position to know what I really want.

When you remember the time you were there for a friend who called you crying..
And one of those, who lets go of things faster than you can imagine, doesn't take things to heart all that fast, and is not like me at all. Her tears are a rarity.
You just feel right within yourself for existing when this person needed you.

When one drifts apart and you watch it happening

"No matter how many plans we make or steps we follow, we never know how our day is going to end up. We'd prefer to know, ofcourse, what curveballs will be thrown our way. It's the accidents that always turn out to be the most interesting parts of our day, the people we never expected to show up, a turn of events we never would have chosen for ourselves. All of a sudden you find yourself somewhere you never expected to be and it's nice, or it takes some getting used to. Still, maybe you'll find yourself appreciating it somewhere down the line. So you go to sleep each night thinking about tomorrow, going over your plans, preparing for them, and hoping that whatever accidents come your way will be happy ones."

Sometimes all you need is space.

I still don't get why people say things for the world .. (without meaning any of it)
Why?

You say things you don't mean all the time
And how one's mind never seems to realize how much difference that is capable of making to the people around you!

That awkward moment when you're at the Heineken Brewery at Amsterdam and 21 years old... But all you can do is look around! Haha. #TrueStory

When you're in a canal cruise and you're in the mood to click pictures but your camera battery dies
And then you have innumerable thoughts crossing your mind but you cannot pen them down because you just can't. And then there are people there talking about the business they do and all the normal chit chat that can happen anytime at any part of the world.. But they're loud and you're on a trip in another part of the world and you can hear only partial things about the history being said out loud (even though you're not the history person, yup).. But you'd wanna know how much ever is being told to you because of the relation one makes to things around as one sees it.
And that's precisely what you're there for! The importance of alignment between the purpose of where you are and why you're there.

Pictures and what you gathered in your head or in your phone's memo pad is all that stays with you at the end of a trip
But people don't mind playing cards on a boat when you're being told stuff about areas you're crossing
But no, that ain't gonna happen

When it's windy and you like the wind. But the air is cold
But you like it anyway
The one option you have with you that way is to pop your head out of the window right next to you (if you happen to be that lucky) to get away from all the crap-chat (or rather, the chat you couldn't care less about) and probably let the cold air make you even colder, to the people around you (pun intended).

Yup, that's another trip!

But the happiness even with the thought that you got waffles, pancakes 'and' french toast for breakfast every morning for a week! :D

I like to believe in certain things :)

"They take pictures of mountain climbers at the top of a mountain. They're smiling, ecstatic, triumphant. They don't take pictures along the way 'cos who wants to remember the rest of it. We push ourselves because we have to, not because we like it. The relentless climb, the pain and anguish of taking it to the next level. Nobody takes pictures of that. Nobody wants to remember. We just wanna remember the view from the top. The breathtaking moment at the edge of the world. That's what keeps us climbing. And it's worth the pain. That's the crazy part. It's worth anything."
