Family

After a sweaty 6-hour drive passing two neighboring Indian states, the three of us finally reached my uncle’s place. no matter how old my uncle gets, he will always be that young, lively ‘cool’ uncle to me. He was still in college when I was a toddler and frequently used college-like vocabulary around us. He…

What’s the story with Brazil

Hey, there fellow readers and bloggers! Okay. I’d been swearing that I’d write more frequently. But since I don’t have a packed cohort of friends with some tasty-looking guys and a snobby mean girl (or at least what life seemed like in Japan!) I’m not really going through a roller coaster of emotions anymore. My…

After yet another long gap

Dear Dear Bloggers and anyone else reading this blog! It’s January 13, 2018. I (almost) gave up blogging a long long while ago, as you can make out from the inconsistency of my posts. Two years ago, I was charged with the words and metaphors that completed life as I experienced it – and most…

From where I left off

Wow, it’s been ages since I’ve written. One of my favorite things about blogging platforms is that it connects you to people all over with similar thoughts or topics they’re writing about even if we’ve never met. It feels so fabulous to hear comments of encouragement or congratulations even if you’re miles away. There are so many…

My breakthrough: Running Suicides.

In this article I’d like to write about something most people dislike. At my school, people hate it at it’s best, groan before it even starts, and have an expression of disgust and hatred-puffing and panting, with scrunched up eyes and extreme fatigue on their faces. Yup, it’s running suicides, this basketball American drill that…

Birthdays.

Charged by a rush of motivation; I think I’ll write today. I’ve finished that shoulder-aching lab report(which is absolutely fascinating) so I’ll write about what’s new. It just happens to be a coincidence-that the guy I’m obsessing over; who I describe all the time; completed another year around the sun; he turned 17 today. He…

What I’ve decided

I think it’s amazing that yet another year, 2015, has passed. I’ve learnt quite a bit educationally; and even if not a lot on the life lesson side; I’ve understood so much more about human behaviour and teenage life. Studying at a boarding school surrounds me with teens after all. i learnt quite a lot…

An introverted teen mind

I’ve got a maths and arts test tomorrow, but we’re allowed to use the internet for arts and I’m good at maths so I think I’ll blog today. The countdown is getting closer. Two more days; and I would’ve completed half my high school. Isn’t that fast? I’ve been thinking about what keeps us alive;…

Going back home

I haven’t written in ages. Well, I think I’ll write today. We’ve been having a truckload of assignments, this bio lab, maths investigation(which I’m still working on yikes!), english written task, TOK presentation and we’ve git exam week next week. Then we hit a milestone-a three and a half week winter break, when I’ll have…

The Right Place, The Wrong Time.

I don’t know if it’s irony or just luck. I’m not a native tamil speaker but I regard Chennai in India as my hometown-the fact that I’ve lived there for 14 years since I was born has just made it a part of me. This summer in the evenings, I’d stray away from home, going…
