Dear Mumbai...

Dear Mumbai,You're Beautiful and I Have a Crush On you and I know that it is early in our relationship but I have to get it off my chest following is a excerpt about really pretty girls which kinda reminds of Mumbai anyways and Job Interviews So, I recently decided to give a visit to the city I've always loved but not in July and August because nothing really significant happens there in that span other than Heavy Rain.Just a heads up that 10 months back I  met a girl in the parking lot of Delhi and all I did was say hello but she didn't respond there later on it turned out that she was my boss here. "STORYTIME"So, here how's the story has rolled out so far it is basically a boy meeting a girl, but the girl being standoffish despite the fact that he's only trying to be a gentleman. Maybe the girl has been hurt before, or just doesn't trust people easily, the two could even go hand-in-hand, because of course, that the way it goes.Different scenario, sa…

Social Lubrication and Anger Management

Social lubricant. It’s not possible to have an awkward moment when you're with me, not even after this ultimate question.

“Like what the fuck is going on!?” a straight depressive face at a Clubbing Event in Colaba, Mumbai.

duderino ! can't stop it. I was born with it. obviously the sane one understood it the second I told them but some people just like to be a little judgy but can't do anything to stop them too. One of my most endearing traits is that I think to an ultimate extent. I mean if you're with me you'll always see my weird fingers doing something, yeah, its that Anxious Lubrication happening to my body at all times.

About Anger Management: I realize that anger is a natural emotion that we can’t always control feeling but we certainly have the power to choose how we are going to respond to that anger. If we scream, holler, stomp our feet and throw a good old fashioned temper tantrum what are we gonna solve besides dragging everyone else down with us? Is t…

farce

this post is for the people who get triggered and offended on jokes made by comedians, and before starting I want to clear that I'm only talking about the comedy done by comedians and the content which meant to be for a comedic show or a movie, not for a mate hurting you in front of your other mates. 'Comedy' is subjective you might not find Someone funny regarding the content of his comedy or the way one delivers the joke. But that doesn't mean that everyone wouldn't find that funny, Different People have different sense of humor.

For Instance some people like Jake Paul, some like Key and Peele. some people like Sean Lock, or some people might like Nikki Glaser its comedy in different spectrums. Sometime it gets offensive I get it, It gets distasteful but its him/her showing the world how fucked up we all are through the medium of comedy.

Its Unfiltered to the point, brutal and to the point where discomfort kicks in but we all have to understand that is how satir…

Voices

From the past two months after my exams and that one of a kind internship I was really having some trouble with my sleeping, Insomnia hits every night and the best thing in the world i.e "Music" isn't helping me with my sleep, because of this particular reason I started using sleeping apps which lead me to ASMRs (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) where I have now learnt a lot about the Voices within which I'm going to elaborate below:

* Voice of Hope 

The voice of hope still believes in fairy tales and happily ever after. It is often quickly smothered by the voice of reason, and ridiculed by the voice of darkness and doubt. But somehow, no matter what happens in life, this voice continues to survive.Yes, sometimes the light dims to barely a spark, but something keeps it alive, keeps it believing.


* Voice of Darkness and Doubt

The voice of darkness and doubt often believes that it is the voice of reason, that it is simply knocking some sense into me, forcing me to …

Accountability

"Hey" it is needless to say this word here, I bet no one expects posts from a person who prefer daydreams over reality. So, actually there is nothing new with me I've been Avoiding boredom and Avoiding accountability. How did I get here? Everything hurts. My mind is foggy as hell. I hate everyone and everything. I need to bite my tongue and save face as best I can. Avoid people.
Next Month I'm off to Mumbai for a few days Drinking lots of water because the trainer said so also I don't want myself to be turning into a Junk Food eating werewolf.
I cleaned my room. Sweating and with drawling and hating myself. Shame and guilt flooding my thoughts. I should finally write that final excerpt for my client Will I ever learn? something is wrong with me. My place is clean now. I still feel stable. I’m gonna read now until I fall asleep. Keep chugging back some water. It’ll be about a week or so before I feel good again. That’s what I get. Atoning for my sins. 
I still re…
