beaches and oily hair don't mix unlike exams and procrastination

here's to feeling nothing as i move to the next phase of unofficial new beginnings // wish things were different
And I wondered for the first time whether 'feeling feminine' just meant feeling good in your own skin.

None of the Above
I've always thought it a strangely significant thing, the fact that happiness is so rarely used in the present tense. Happiness always WAS or WILL BE. It never IS.

i had no idea how this book was going to turn out, absolutely none , not even bothered to see its genre. the title 'if i die today' sounded pretty good so why not.
i know i say this a lot but i feel so glad i read this book because it was amazinggg with lots of extra g's
most of the books i have read that were written by women were YA fantasies so i always thought a world to be a certain way, i got so engrossed in the new dimensions of mystical creatures and the ruling monarchies that i forgot to understand simple human nature. in fantasies the whys' are easy, why does that character behaves a certain way, we know the motive. but in reality we can only guess.
I love shashi deshpande and everything she has written.

it's not all random,
if it really was all random,
the universe would abandon us completely.
and the universe doesn't.
it takes care of its most fragile creations in ways we can't see.
like with parents who adore you blindly.
and a big sister who feels guilty for being human over you.
and a little gravelly-voiced kid whose friends have left him over you.
and even a pink-haired girl who carries your picture in her wallet.
maybe it is a lottery,
but the universe makes it all even out in the end.
the universe takes care of all its birds.

it doesn't have to be love immediately, or even love eventually.

I guess we always need somone a little different from us, not polar opposite, just someone who won't retaliate to your pettiness.

you know when you get lost, you keep on moving forward. you have the option to turn back and continue on the same path. it doesn't take much. just turn around and walk back. but you don't. i don't know what happens but you keep on walking in the other direction hopeful you'll find another path.
i remember when i got lost near the jammu-pakistan border. i knew home was behind because it has been hours and i hadn't reached. but something kept me from turning back. i was thirsty and hungry, crying my eyes out but i walked and walked.
sometimes this urge to not go back i find it similar to ex-loves'. there was a time when i loved you deeply, there is still a part of me that will always love you. i think the love is fickle because i find new loves every week. but when i walk away from the path that made us, even if it kills me, i'll keep my eyes straight and just go because letting go is easy and i always like easy.

I'm so glad that my syllabus includes studying To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
I first read her book in ninth grade when I knew about the concept of racism but couldn't understand it quite well. Imagine the only message I thought I learned from this book was- Not to judge people.
I even told people that it was overrated, I didn't knew what the hype was for. The writing is good but that's it. Oh boy, I wish I could understand the little bouts of irony and deprecation of the protagonist's own culture and her ancestors.
Also Scout was so adorable and such a headstrong character, it was amazing watching her character develop through the entire book.

I was really into this booktober thingy but all my answers are soon going to be same. Favourite Childhood Book. Percy Jackson. Favourite Fictional Character That You Want To Make Babies With. Percy Jackson. ANSWER TO EVERYTHING IS EFFING PERCY JACKSON. BOOKTOBER DONE.
I'd like to say my boyfriend is Percy Jackson but I am Percy Jackson so I'd like to go with Fred Weasley who is dead *sobs*
Also no offence, if I get Celeana Sardothien as my girlfriend NO ONE ELSE MATTERS I'M ALL HERS
My title was 'Feminism, Apps and Friends"
It was basically how I interpreted feminism based on the apps I used and the friends I made.
This video is just a small part of what I said.
Can't wait to share the entire video with you guys but first I have to learn editing and stuff.
PS: I was so nervous I kept on pulling my shirt and looking down. Don't mind that.
