You are abandoned places with run down houses hidden in a corner of a map, long forgotten, always overlooked. I will search every corner of the map till I find you and, when I do I will travel the world to find you and your … Continue reading For the lost and lonely.
Spend some time
With the night sky
Curled up beside you.
Let it drip secrets
In your ears
Is its most

To all the crazies out there, you’re not alone
I’m a very random person. Most of my conversations with my friends don’t start with hello. They are more of an omg-I-just-saw-this-dress-and-I-HAVE-to-buy-it nature.
When something exciting happens, and my friends are not with me, I call them and shriek into their ear before they can even get a word out. *chuckles*
Just today I was telling one of my friends that I have just added her to the list.
Me: I have added you to my call-them-and-randomly-shriek-into-their-ear.
Friend: Hahaha, I think I’m okay with that.
Me: Okay with that? Bitch, please. You are going to love it.
Friend: That’s going on your blog, isn’t it?
Me: Hehehehehe. I’m writing it as we speak.
I also change topics a lot. I would be talking about something with my friends, and then out of the blue I just change the topic. And my friends go all, “woah! When did we start talking about THIS now?”
Me: Um, since now?
Like, for example, I sent this to said friend. This is a continuation of the aforementioned conversation, by the way.
Me: Hold on, let me send it to you.
Friend: *after reading it*
Hahaha, you’re crazy.
Me: But you love me. *flutters eyelashes*
*a second later*
Dude, omg. I have this exam tomorrow, and I’m completely freaking out!!! I can’t talk right now, bye.
Friend: Wait a minute. Where did this come from?
Now, let me tell you how this would have taken place if we had been talking in person, rather than over the text.
Let us assume said friend is sitting somewhere. I come and plop down next to her and start talking before her brain can catch up with my sudden appearance out of seemingly thin air.
Me: I saw this amazing black dress on flipkart yesterday, but my mom wouldn’t let me order it.
Friend: *gets into the conversation since this is very normal behaviour for me*
Me: She says I have too many black dresses already, which is absurd because everyone knows there is no such thing as “too many black dresses.”
Friend: Haha, your mom. *shakes head* You should just order it, babe
Me: I have an exam tomorrow that I’m completely freaking out about, so I need to go study. I can’t talk right now, see you later.
*gets up and leaves*
Friend: *baffled expression* Was I not having a conversation with a human being just a second ago?
I realize this is a very random post. I have observed that I often get ideas for my posts when I’m doing the dishes. I wonder what is up with THAT.
