About Tisha M

I am a pretty positive and happy person. I truly believe that life should not be lived on auto-pilot. We can be and do, anything we wish to. Dreams are not things, only to be seen with closed eyes. If we are determined and ready to work hard enough, we can actually live it.

Bloody Mother of Dragon, I’m not Daenerys! :|

Standard

Let me not even go there and talk about my inconsistent blog posts!! I’ll rather put a congratulatory post, when I consistently post for at least 6 months!

Whatever let me start this fiery post!

~~~~~

The day was 28th January’17. The day all my dreams shattered, the day I realized I was not the mother of Dragons and I won’t ever find any eggs that will give me cute dragon babies. The day I realized if I step into a pyre of fire, I’ll DIE.

How did my delusional mind came to that realization, you ask?

So let me tell you about that hell of a night, I went for a bachelorette party. It was going on pretty well. Dance, drinks, food, cute guys. Then one kind soul among us, thought we should try fire shots. Well, they looked scary to begin with. So the first round we were given straws and that went smoothly. Then came the second round, and thanks to the daredevil attitude that kicks in after a couple of drinks, we had this amazing idea of taking the fire shots like normal shots. That too went well for everyone else. But well, I’m the 1% percent of the population when it comes to disaster. I spilled the drink on my lips and cheeks and burnt them. Now normal people would go consult a doctor immediately, but the amazing brain cells I have, it managed to convince me it was nothing and I would be fine, so I went put some ice, had few more drinks and enjoyed the party.

The next few weeks, well let me not talk about it. It has taken me almost 3 months, to take this incident in a humorous spirit. It’s not easy to attend a wedding you were looking forward to for months with a burnt face. I have cried, I was depressed. My face is still not flawless as it was before but well I can only learn to accept it laugh about it and wear it like a badge of honor of a crazy night.

There’s one thing, I learnt from this incident, something or some experiences in life are better left untried. It’s better to be inexperienced than have scary, depressing experiences like these.

Everything aside, the saddest part of this whole incident was coming in term with the fact that, I don’t have dragon blood! Even though it has been 3 months, I have still not able to come out and recover from the depression this fact has caused me.

How will I ever manage to sit on the Iron Throne now?! 

P.S Please don’t take fire shots! If you absolutely have to, or you will lose the title of being the ‘Coolest Kid‘ then be very very careful!!

 🇺🇸 Did you just. . . ? 

Standard

Hold on! ! I still can’t let it sink! This isn’t a joke, are we sure? This is really happening ? 

It is almost 12 hrs , but I am still not able to digest this. Did the world’s largest economy chose a sexist, racist man as their president ! ?  

I guess, it’ll take awhile for us to come in terms with the fact, that Obama will actually be succeeded by Trump . 

God Bless America 🇺🇸 !

Not even funny anymore!

Standard

I sometimes ask myself, I really like having this blog, so why am I not maintaining it? Unfortunately, I haven’t figured out the answer yet.

The last post I have is from 27th MAY!! It’s 28th August. 3 months and nothing. The 3 months were, kind of like a roller coaster ride, finishing college, starting job, shifting places. But still I can’t blame it on being busy, because come on, I would be kidding myself if I said, I was too busy to even find couple of hours to post something. The only thing, I can put my blame on is my laziness.

Considering, the heights of laziness, I have reached, it’s not even funny anymore.

those_lazy_cats (2)

I’m like this cat, who might like different things, but when it finds a comfortable place, instead of doing anything else. It prefers to fall asleep.

I’m sure, if we (kitty & me) had to put our life in hashtags, we would be like #sleepisbae #sleepislove #sleeplife #yawningforever #lookingforsleepingareas #excusestosleep 

I have made promises to be a regular blogger, so many times, that I’m not even sure, what to say anymore. But well, let’s try again. I will really try to make it a habit to at least have two posts in a week. I’m not sure about which days. But 2 posts a week.

Thanks for reading this completely useless and lame post! I’m sorry for this, but I promise, I’ll do a lot better than this. 😀

Beauty within.

Beauty is not in the face; Beauty is a light in the heart. 

It takes real effort to be beautiful from the inside. Afterall, there isn’t any edible makeup yet.
If you find a person with inner beauty, you might want to hold onto them.

Fork in the road

Standard

With the amount of forks, I have found on the road. I feel I can say, it’s been enough to stock up my cutlery.

Decisions! Decisions! Decisions!  It’s so irritating, how I need to feed every data in my ‘life’. It can’t do one damn thing on its own. I’m passing college, what do I do now? It asks me, Come on Life, For once, be brave and YOU tell me, What should I do?! I’m so tired of telling you what to do, everytime.

Your need to make a decision increases, when you’re lazy. Every morning, I’m faced with the question, Do I need a shower today?! It’s not that I hate shower, the decision would have been easier, if I did. I hate the before and after part of the shower. Every day, atleast 2 times, I have to choose, whether to cook or order food?! Of course, being lazy I prefer the latter option, not a tough decision, you say. But the problem comes, when the end of the month is near and the wallet looks pretty empty. Still I can deal with these decisons, doesn’t require too much of an effort. I would like it if I didn’t have to do it but still I can deal with the forks on these roads.

The tough part is when the forks in the road are so huge, looking at it, I get a feeling, that it’s telling me, FORK YOU! Decisions like, What course do I need to choose after class 10th? It has been 6 years, since I made that decision and I’m still not sure, if it’s been the right one. After 12th decision like, What subject to graduate in or should I go for a professional course? The pressure, that decisons like these determine mine future, makes it even harder to take. Then there are choices like, That guy at the gym is cute, Do I ask him out?! If you’re too late in taking a decision, that guy might leave the gym forever and you don’t get to see him again.

I can ramble about it for quite long but then I don’t want to force my readers to make a decision, whether to read or not! I would just tell them, when you see a post from the blog, Just give it a read. I like to keep it short and simple. 😛

Over the short period of time, I have managed to survive without facing too many catastrophic consequences of my decisions. I would like to say, Whenever I find a fork in the road, I choose the one which is going to make me happy. Happy is not easy though. I’m not talking about happiness in the short run but decision which you really feel is going to make you happy in the end. Don’t choose a road, just because it’s easy to travel.

Daily Post, Could you be more weird?! Fork as a prompt, Why you do this? Anyway, I accepted the challenge and I hope I did justice.

 

Thanks for Reading.

Keep Happy! Keep Smiling! 😀

End of a phase.

Standard

Three years of college life has gone by. What has changed you ask? I now hold a fancy degree. I have a few more contacts in my phone, some to be remembered for life, some to just be random names, I once knew. If my life dependent on cooking for myself now, I wouldn’t die, I might even have feasts somedays. I can now even bargain, find cheap pizzas and get good deals.

Never did I think, I would say, I will miss studying economics. But as I was going through my last exams, the thought that this may well be the last time, I am studying this, was kind of sad. (Not that it motivated me much, to study harder and longer for the exams. 😛 ) By the end, I did realize, as my time with economics was becoming scarce, its marginal utility was kind of increasing.

College gets you habituated to a way of independent life. Staying away from home, might sound scary in the beginning but the thought of moving in back, even for a short time, is scarier. Thoughts that I actually have to take a shower everyday, not get breakfast at 12 in the noon, have to make the bed after I wake up; is daunting.

The worst part of moving on in life, to the next phase, is having to bit goodbye to the people we met. Of course, they’ll be a part of my life, but it would never be the same. It’s tough going from being with them all the time to just meeting them once in months or even years.

I won’t say it has been the best chapter in my life’s novel. I would like to believe, I have better chapters coming up. But, it sure has been an intersting one. A wave of mixed feelings hit me, when I think of moving on to the next chapter. It looks everything between scary and exciting.

I don’t know if I’m ready but I sure am looking forward to take the leap and move on to the next chapter now.

I have been away from this blog for awhile. I don’t think anyone really noticed, but if bychance someone did, I would like to mark my presence and say, I didn’t die, I just had my finals, yeah that’s close enough. I will try my best to have more regular posts now, so that you guys are forced to notice me. Desperate? I know. I might disappear sometimes but don’t get too happy, I’ll always be back.

What a coincidence! I already had the title of my blog written, I was sure I wanted to right about my college life today and not on the daily prompt. Guess What happened? I get a mail with today’s prompt as  Phase.Can it be more awesome?! 

 

India’s Love.

Standard

India and Cricket!
The only time I see this country truly united is during a Cricket Match. It’s practically impossible to see all parts of the country cheering for the same outcome (except around the JNU campus maybe (Sorry, just had to do that:P)). If you witness something like that be sure, there’s a cricket match going on.

Independence or Republic Day can’t bring out the amount of Patriotism, a cricket match does in this country.
If it’s a World Cup semifinals or finals or a match against Pakistan, every possible place that could manage to get a projector will have a screening. It’s the best time to go out because that’s the only time you’ll find the streets traffic free.
When we win, the atmosphere is nothing less than a festival. In a country like India, with no dearth of festivals. We are hardly disappointed if a sudden festival comes in, we are more than prepared to deal with any kind of festivities.

Cricket and Me.
I would consider myself to be a pretty decent cricket fan. I won’t say die hard, because if you bombard me with cricket questions I can’t answer them.
But, I can’t miss India’s match during a World Cup, even if I have an exam the next day.
I would say I kind of understand the game, but if you tell me to look at a ball and judge what type of ball it was or how the batsman will react to it, than you are in for disappointment.

The only sport I have ever done was swimming, reason being, I don’t really like sweating and this was the only sport I didn’t have to sweat in.
So, of course keeping in mind my such amazing sports record, the fact that I really enjoy watching a sport is kinda shocking to me.

If someone told me, you are a reason for a billion people’s happiness tonight. A billion people wants you to give the best you can today. I would probably faint on the spot.
I genuinely appreciate the effort the players put in any sports. Winning Losing is a part of the game but just going there performing is really appreciable.
So, when people who call themselves ‘fans’ but could be better classified as a bunch of lunatics who starts acting violently attacking the players, just because the country lost the match, it really irks me. I think a person can’t be called a fan if they can’t take the outcome sportingly.

Anyway, It’s #IndvsWI WCT20 semifinal tonight, so just grab a bottle of beer sit back forget about our work and cheer for the men in blue!

Envious? Hell Yeah!

Standard

  • Oh my god! Look at her, isn’t it the 10th day in a row, she hasn’t repeated a footwear?!
  • Damnn! Look at that Gucci watch her fiance gave her. 
  • Holy sh*t! When did they go to Switzerland? Didn’t they just come back from vacationing in Hawaii?
  • Wtf!? How in the world, is he partying everyday, his one day snap story is more interesting than all the days combined in my semester!
  • Aww! The only single friend, I have changes relationship status to ‘in a relationship’. That’s. so. freaking. cute.

Does any of that makes me envious, believe me I’m trying my best to type no. But, I can’t, Of course it does.

I feel all social medias should come up with one tagline “Working hard to make it easier for you to envy your friends.” We did stay close and connected to the ones we wanted to, letters were good enough, but damn you, technology the closeness you have given us can sometimes be really suffocating.
Yeah, Yeah, Don’t start with how I can, stop using them. It’s not like if I start living in stone age, people will follow suit. I don’t have that type of devoted fans, whom I can lead by example. I might have one day.
These things make me envy people but that doesn’t last more than a few minutes or a few screenshots and gossips.

The one thing about certain people that I envy the most is Focus in life. I really Envy those people who have from the beginning known, what they wanted to do in life. The people who are sorted about what path they wish to follow. Be it a doctor or a model, they know that’s what they want to become.
I am jealous of them, who have figured out what it is that they love to do and are doing it beautifully.

I on the other hand, fall in love with a new profession everyday. My inspiration for a profession is directly related to the coolest guy’s profession in a novel I read or a series I watch. The only thing that happens faster than my shift in love for a profession is a death in Game of Thrones. I feel, I’m the most confused person I have known in my life.
I really envy those people who can answer the question, “Where do you see yourself in five years?” with clarity and precision. I am like, it will be a surprise not only for you but for me too. The longest duration, I feel I can foresee is a year. I can’t go beyond that because I have no idea, when I’ll end up getting bored and shift to a different direction altogether.

For now, I really hope, I can keep my focus and keep working on my blog this time.

Drop it down.

Days have gone,
Memories are becoming hazy.
Don’t you frown.
Just Drop it down.

Relations have grown apart,
Once Friends now foes.
Don’t breakdown.
Just Drop it down.

Mistakes were made,
let it teach you not define you.
Don’t you frown.
Just Drop it down.

Burden of the past,
Let it not scar your present.
Don’t breakdown.
Just Drop it down.

~~~~
We have a tendency to cling on to the past, be it mistakes, relations or memories.
Sometimes, that’s what disrupts our focus off the present. So let’s just deal with it once and drop it down.

P.S I felt the need to write this explanation para, because of the immense doubt, I have in my poetic ability.

Change is inevitable.

Standard

Inevitable

One word prompt.

image

Source: Google Images

As soon as we adjust ourselves to a change and start getting comfortable, life knocks us out with some other random changes.
Sometimes the changes lift our spirits higher, like when you make some new amazing friends in school and college. Sometimes they break us down, like when you have to say goodbye to them or they just drift apart. But, both times, it ends up teaching us a valuable lesson and reminds us, Change is inevitable.

The inevitability of change doesn’t make it a villain. It’s how you perceive it, that matters. Every change knocks on the door with opportunities, it depends on how wide you open the door.

The inevitable nature of change is what brings thrill to life. Maintaining an equilibrium in life for a long time, gets boring. From time to time, there should be shifts in the different curves of life, so that the adrenaline level increases or decreases. That is the only way to expand our horizons and grow to our full potential and sometimes even surpass them.

Ofcourse, I loved being a kid, who could cry and get her job done. I loved it when choosing the color of a crayon was the hardest decision I had to make. I loved it when being happy took the slightest of effort. I loved it when monopoly money was all I had to worry about.

But, I equally love to be responsible for getting my job done. I love it when I’m given power to make bigger decisions, which determines where I stand in life. I love it when I convince and work towards making myself happy. I love it when I pay real bills with real money.

If changes were evitable we would never step out of our state of equilibrium. Change is the only constant in our equation of life. So let’s accept it and go with the flow.
