The only Anniversary I care about –

Screen Shot 2019-08-30 at 2.50.50 AM

Last night, before sleeping this notification popped up on my screen and it made me SO happy because when I look at the years that I’ve been here for it amazes me how far I’ve come (in life, and writing, and everything else).

Also, it crazy amazes me that people actually read and comment and that makes me happy. My title is a tiny bit misleading because I also care about One Direction’s anniversary and I am a 22 year-old girl who is not ashamed of it.

 

Happy Anniversary to me!

Netflix Binging!

1*qZwaQPvlI2dcvfWeXixc-A@2x

I’ve spent my last two weekends super productively I’d like to think because I’ve successfully finished new seasons of two shows I’d been eagerly waiting for and these are my thoughts about them:

  1. Mindhunter Season 2 – I had been really desperately waiting for the second season seeing how the first one had ended; for anyone who doesn’t remember, Holden goes to visit Ed Kemper alone and ends up having a massive panic attack. Simultaneously, internal affairs has decided to look into the BSU and the members are dealing with the repercussions of this.  I watched four episodes together and the fourth episode was the one that actually blew me away. The storyline of the season is as captivating and engaging as the last one was and so many episodes make me desperately feel for Holden. If you’ve seen the first season, there is absolutely no reason you shouldn’t watch this one. Unfortunately, the ending will again make you want to know whats going to happen next desperately.
  2. 13 Reasons Why Season 3 – I’ll admit that I actually liked the second season a lot more than I did the first one. This was maybe because of already reading the book, I wasn’t a huge fan of the picturisation. When I first saw the trailer for the new season (with the recurring theme of who killed bryce walker – I was SO excited). The new season introduces a new character named Ani. Ani directs the narrative of every episode and I didn’t like her right from the start. The season starts off really strong and then in the middle falls a bit flat just before picking up again. I shall not deny that one of my absolute favourite part of the season is Clay telling Justin “I’d do anything for you.”, and Justin replying with “Same”. The third season revolves very strongly around personal relationships, around classmates becoming family and ultimately doing anything and everything for each other. I was mildly disappointed and upset with the reveal of the actual killer because it killed me to see who it was, and yet overall I think it was a good season.

 

 

Are my reviews enough motivation for you to watch?

Why living in a different country makes me cry everyday;

Funnily, it’s only been 14 days since I’ve left home to come to Singapore and it honestly feels like 40 days. Time isn’t exactly going fast, but going so slowly that the effort I’m putting in each day feels like I’ve been here for so many days.

Obviously, I constantly miss home. Not sometimes, or not randomly, but constantly. It’s like that small background noise in my head that isn’t going away (according to my best friend, it takes 21 days to make something a habit so I should wait longer).

Singapore is an amazing city. My university is amazing. I am so sure that this whole year is going to be amazing. But all of it is not enough to make me forget that this city is not home. I’ve realized that what I miss more than most is the fact that I don’t know the roads. That there are shop signs I cannot read. That at every turn, people look at me like I don’t belong (which I do not, but it still bothers me). And I desperately miss Indian food.

Its weird because every new day is making me wonder how so many people in my life have gone abroad to study and loved it so much that I didn’t want to come back and all I want to do is come back.

 

P.S – If anyone has tips to survive this please comment thanks.

Graduation and the future!

2 days ago I finally graduated (FIVE YEARS). It was the happiest my college has ever made me feel and I almost successfully executed all the cliche pictures I really wanted.

The best thing about graduation is that I finally get to move forward with the next part of my life, which crazily is more studying (oops).

Yesterday, I flew to Singapore to start my LLM at the Singapore Management University and though I’m sure it will be everything and more that what I expect it to be, I’m extremely sad about leaving my family and cannot wait to see them again!
