How many such sentences or truths can I write about myself within ten minutes? If you want to participateContinue reading “Day 4 – 10 Mins for 10 Days”

Day 1 & 2 – 10 Mins for 10 Days

Ready, set and go! My timer has been set and oops, there goes the bell! I mean the doorbell. This is my life.

Coffee, Books, Shows and Things That Bond Us

The other day, when I walked to the kitchen to have a glass of water, I overheard my mother talking with the excitement of a teenager with her sister about the latest shenanigans from the show they were watching together. I smiled to myself and thought of last Sunday, when I spent an hour onContinue reading “Coffee, Books, Shows and Things That Bond Us”

Golden Apple, Green Pear

Once upon a time, there was a Kingdom, somewhere, I’m not very clear about the specifics of the location, but then that wasn’t the important bit anyway. Let’s call this Kingdom, the Kingdom of good fortune and fruits. All kinds of beings lived happily here, if social media was anything to go by. But whenContinue reading “Golden Apple, Green Pear”
