Musing: Home Alone

If you thought being Home Alone is going to be like the movie we all watched as kids, think again. It's not even been a day since my parents went off on their business trip and I've been trying to do only half of what my mother does.

For one, I've completely lost the privilege of having a social life. Once active on Facebook, now I log in once in awhile to drown in notifications. (But thank god for Smart Phones) least I'm still connected with the world. In order to tell this tale, let me start from the beginning.

I am a twenty four year old MPhil student who is still struggling to find her thesis topic. In 2012, I adopted a little kitten I had found on my doorstep. Pippo is now almost 2 years old and has his own mood swings. My mother is the only person who can control him when he apparently loses his head. I've been praying that he doesn't get up to his usual mischief during her absence.

So this Home Alone story is about not being so much home alone. Bec…

Musing: Soul Mates

What is so great about unrequited love?

When I was first introduced to the concept of loving someone, without having even a shred of that love being returned, I was a little taken with that idea. It was not until I played with the dangerous fire of unrequited love that I didn't realize how badly one can get burned from that.

From what I've learned in my own experiences is that people are people, and sometimes they can be really stupid. So when it comes to the matters of the heart, it is better to listen to your inner voice. I don't know if you have one, but I have this nagging voice in my head (which oddly enough sounds like my sister) whenever I know I am making a wrong decision.

But this post isn't about wrong decision. This post is about something I've always believed in. Ever since I was a little girl. This post is about soul mates and happily ever afters.

I always thought my life would unfold like a fairy tale and my prince would come riding in his white hors…

Musing: The New Year

So the New Year has finally rolled around, and if I am compare it to last has been off to one amazing start. The memories from last year are so clearly etched on my mind. Sometimes I sit and I wonder how I could be the girl I was last year. Then again, time does heal your wounds and puts you back together in such away, that you begin to realize, what doesn't kill you, certainly makes you stronger.

At least, that's what has happened with me.

2014 is a brand New Year and it means I can get to write the story of my life, any way I want now. So, I am going to start by making my New Year Resolutions:

Write a little every day. Whether it's on my blog, my journal, my notebooks...but I will write something everyday, for sure.Do at ONE thing each day that makes me happy. That can range from watching television, to reading old books, to marking out favorite quotes. But for half an hour every day, I'm going to be at my place of pure bliss.Keep my room in order. Only I a…
