Good food, and/or knowing another person's day was made because of you
~ makes my day.

The friendship between men 'without' saying the obvious things, lasts a lifetime
and it's just about the opposite with us women

When you're willing to take that risk
When you somehow feel you have it in you to say it
It's been long since this thing has been on your mind and there have been more than a few times when you really, really got the urge to freaking do something about it
But you couldn't for several reasons
For reasons like it wasn't your place to, for reasons like the other person may believe he/she understood what you said, but what he/she heard is not what you meant, because it is not that damn simple to convey it just the right way
One's state of mind and happiness has been getting decided by another's actions
What lack of communication can do, always leaves me jaw dropped in situations where it only leads to assumptions, and as I've said, they are the worst things ever. Let's just leave them for economics, which is a con!

"Google Search : Reunion"
~ An advertisement by Google. Must watch!
Made me cry too, yes.
And I'm told it's based on a true story!

Because we've all changed
evolved to be the new people we are today
Time does that
All for the good I guess
Our choices are different
And so are our perceptions
But then again, some things don't change.. simply because they're situations
And one has to change the situation one self
It won't magically just disappear the next day

I don't get how people are just willing to overlook important parameters affecting another's life right in front of your eyes and since forever!
How on earth can you be that apathetic towards this whole scenario that has been playing live in front of you in someone's life who's again been a significant person of your life all along?

Sometimes, we all wanna escape
Oh how much I love that
Listen to distracting songs
Change the subject being talked about
Write it out
Sleep it off
Take a walk
Do whatever it takes to be an escapist
Not because you're not enjoying your life, but because you know someone who means the world to you, isn't enjoying theirs

It will never fail to amuse me how people don't see the obvious
It's either that they simply don't get it
Or you pretend so damn well that you've forgotten yourself what the original thing was
It's like one says, 'Just be careful who you pretend to be, I'd hate if you forgot who you are!'

When you couldn't attend something
you'll never know what you missed
but you're fine with it

When one family member does too much
and sometimes it's not just about acknowledging but also reminding him/her how much that means to us
Us humans have a tendency to forget things
And we need to be comforted... and sometimes, words can do wonders

Not that lost.

"Be hurt. I can take it, the world can take it."
- really the right thing to hear when you are?
For a moment I was like, wow. But, not so much when you can't get your mind off, of what it was that's gotten on your mind. It's like bacteria. It's only multiplying even when your efforts were all to make it stop/shut down and not just put it to sleep.

When you didn't want the person to say the words back to you.
You just wanted the person to accept it. That is all.
Acceptance is the most important thing (as I've mentioned earlier). Coming to terms with it.
But, okay.

Perspective. Perception. Point of view. Inference. Interpretation. Power of the mind.

"Human perception is actually relative and conceptual, not absolute."

"Don't give away anything that you have to, earlier than you have to."

"In business, you don't have to be right,
you just have to be less stupid than your competitors."

Will get back in a post, soon, about the talk I attended by Rory Sutherland.

And Diwali happened and I wasn't home for the first time.
Yes, you miss home the most during this one festive season.

Do not get too affected by things, situations, people. It never helps. Never.
Don't stop working on how much it got to you. Or how much you let it get to you.

When you end up doing things you've never done before
Not in terms of the adventure you'd assumed you would (you haven't forgotten your bucket list just yet)
But doing things in terms of being there. For people.
Going out of your way in more than just one manner and being happy for them.

Overdose of chocolate.
Waffles with nutella. Cocoa and chocolate cream wafers. Lindt Lindor. Chocotastic pop tarts. Mars.

The additional costs in life that we tend to overlook more than often!!
(this is an interesting observation and I do intend to elaborate on it soon)

A fire alarm drill at seven in the morning is one of the worst things ever,
when you know you have a lecture at nine and had to wake up in half an hour anyway!
The value of five minutes is best understood during these early morning hours,
when you had to either give up your sleep, or run to be punctual for a class,
because you did sleep for those five minutes anyway, that were not extra any more then!

Finding out you hadn't replied to comments on your posts ~ *happily surprised*

The generation gap and the variance in the chain of thought on the same subject
The difference in the want to understand
Absolutely overlooking what matters too much to the other person
Rigidity in the mindset with negligible willingness to widen it really
Or maybe a bit for the world but less than zero percent for yourself

When you see a goose hurt in the garden right outside your building, standing in the rain, and barely managing to move, you call up the student reception to ask for help (and it was a Saturday) and you get the worst reply of all time. You call up security and you're told some crap about how you shouldn't mess with the balance of life and nature.
You manage to go down with another flatmate of yours to see what can be done (keeping in mind that the bird will, in most probability, move away, as soon as we get to him/her)
And even though that's exactly what had happened, once again the only ointment that had popped in my head was boroline, but he/she had, had a bone injury and we knew we couldn't do anything
While we felt helpless and talked to each other about it, while watching out on him/her for a bit,
I realized that by the evening, the bird's friends had come to his/her rescue! (no kidding)
We're all aware that geese always tend to move together and this one had been alone all day
But the day did get better for him/her after all, and so it did for me :)
