Under the Table and Dreaming..


Don't even ask. Where have I been, what have I been doing, why wasn't I blogging, why am I invisible? One word reply - B-School.

If I wanted to talk about that, I wouldn't be blogging which also explains my absence all this while. But here's what I want to talk about!

So, I came across Matt Haig's website and his lists excited me enough to actually open the Blogger dashboard and write. Here's my collection of lists:

Things I Love:
  • City Lights at night that twinkle when I wrinkle my eyes
  • John Mayer's songs on a loop
  • Sitting on a beach with feet sinking in the sand and crystals in the hair
  • Hot Pakodis and jalebi on a rainy day
  • Green fields rushing by in a blur on a highway drive
  • Hanging your head down from the Upper berth on the train to scare someone
  • Looking at class photographs from 20 years back and recognizing people
  • Lazy Sunday brunch at home
  • Gossiping with my sister at 1 in the night
  • The extremely rare moments when I feel I photographed well!
  • Compliments!
  • Meeting people who think like me
  • Listening to my Grandma's over-exagerrated stories of her childhood, my Mom's childhood AND my childhood - that's quite a collection!
  • Chocolates, especially of the dark and expensive type. :P
  • Denims that fit well
  • Chocolate sauce and bread sandwich for lunch
  • Checkered Shirts. (I should record this one in obsessions!)
  • Spending hours in a book shop and reading a book half way before someone stops you

Things I Worry About:
  • Blogger's Block! :(
  • That I'll stop learning someday
  • Not having a partner! :D
  • Turning old. Meh. :-|
  • Not being able to go on my world tour
  • 2012
  • Animal Farm seriously coming true someday?
  • Internet becoming regulated
  • Being far away from those I love
  • For the time being, my placements!
  • Hurting someone unknowingly

And that's about all I could think of in the 3 minutes, 40 seconds I took to write this post! It was a fun exercise, do try if you run out of things to write, like I did! :D

Hope to blog more soon!

Till then,

Keep rocking! :P

  9. "The extremely rare moments when I feel I photographed well!" Oh god! I know that feeling so well!!!

    And as for denims that fit well, its become such a hopeless quest that I've more or less given up on it. And then, when it miraculously does happen, my joy knows no bounds. And also, I literally live in them till I wear them out!

    I know how you're feeling about the busy-ness. Hang in there....November isn't too far away.

  15. Thing I Love - Seeing a new post from Preeks after a long break :) :)

    Pretty awesome list, and it comes as no surprise that a lot of the the things you mentioned, are there on my list as well.

    Since you've learnt the art of time management, do write more frequently! :)
