Happy 365 my darling!!
A huge shout out to The Man in my life because no one else will bother reading this other than him so I shall indulge myself a little tonight (again).
I know that I am definitely not the easiest person to love but thanks for always loving me even on days when I make it immensely difficult for you to do so. On this arbitrarily decided occasion, I just want to thank you for pampering me like no else does and for enriching my life in so many different ways! I can only pray that I make you feel vaguely the same, although I know that I definitely fall short by quite a distance but please take comfort in knowing that I am always trying my very best!
Here’s to many many more! <3
(Hashtag whale Hashtag pumpkin Hashtag shamelesslyindulgent Hashtag anniversary!) - doing this because u know how my mac doesn’t have hashtag shortcut and i forgot the combination of buttons to press but u get my drift hahaha

Every once in a while, you will get such a rotten day that you just want to fast forward time and get over this day. Just because the hope of getting over a bad day appears to be the only consolation for what seems to be a curse of all things bad happening within a span of 24 hours.
Fast forward already, please.

The other day I asked Alex whether “Preacher” reminded him of our road trip in lake district and scotland. And, he replied matter-of-fact-ly no, he does not associate songs with any time frame.
That, in my opinion, was a shocker. I am a slut for all things nostalgic and quite frankly, I take every opportunity to leach on anything just for memory sake.
Scent, songs and especially weather. I find it hard to separate these intrinsic elements from memories. The smell of mimosa is always associated with childhood bliss, simply because my primary school tutor wore it everyday without fail. Adele’s playlist was on repeat every Wednesday morning, in third year of uni whilst I braved the cold from lakeside to campus for tutorials (this will always be a memory I take pride in). How the script was practically our anthem in first year benefactors’ loft. And last year this time, Birdy was my favourite (not to mention, it was also the beginning of something very beautiful).
I find it very pleasurable reminiscing about the past and appreciating, once again, the simple joys in life. Sometimes, perhaps, that’s all we need to gravitate ourselves to people and issues that really matter.

Tonight is one of those rugby nights, and obviously i get excused, so i sit in the comfort of my sleep-inducing bedroom and spend my time studying the new rules in listing manual. Well, of cos I don’t have such discipline to focus on that solely (emphasis on saturday night), so i get distracted by (i) spotify which keeps playing the lumineers (ii) clare who feeds me stories about her parisian life (mostly drunk stories) while she gets distracted by me from packing/hiding stuff before her guests arrive for pre-drinks (yet, again) and (iii) recipes for my dinner party next week. And once in a while when I drift back to studying, I get a rude shock by how tedious it is to follow these rules. So my advice to all those big listed mnc companies is: pay every cent your counsel demands and give in to all their needs, they will save you a hell lot of trouble.
Okay, so the reason why I wanted to pen something down (which is really rare) is because I chanced upon a random post on tumblr. It is a quote to the effect of hoping that he (presumably, the apparent love of the writer’s life) will notice when she is not around. And I thought, I should leave a note somewhere, shamelessly no less, to express how blessed my life has been. My selfless family, my group of small but extremely close friends and most importantly, alex who will definitely notice when I am not around (insert nervous, hearty laughter). If world war III strikes or zombie virus starts spreading, in which I case I would almost definitely kill myself first, I will look back to this day and die happy.
Evidently, my mind is cluttered and I have zilch attention span. But, and this is a big but, this is a stress-free saturday night so I guess I get the right to be self-indulgent :D
