Things that make me Happy!

Hey neighbors, welcome back to my blog! 


So, I have a feeling that I might have wrote a post similar to this one, or I might not have…I’m confused.

Nonetheless, I’m gonna write it again because why not. Today, I am going to list things that make me happy! Even if I wrote about this topic before, the things that make me happy might have changed, right? 

As we grow, we sometimes begin to dislike things that we like and like the things we dislike. So if you ever stumble upon a similar post of mine, don’t forget to comment below and find the difference! (That’s fun, right?)

Do you Prefer Cats or Dogs?

Uh, if you know me and have read most of my blogs, then obviously, I prefer cats. Why? Because 1) They are cute. 2) They are super cute and 3) They are cute. 

I’ve a cat named Ginger and I love and miss her so much! However, I think I’m going to meet her soon, yay!!!! 

Anyway, I’m not saying that I don’t like dogs. I just don’t prefer them over cats. Plus, I’ve had cats since I was a kid, so I’m more attached to them than dogs. 

Also, dogs are cute, but not as cute as cats. That’s what I think, okay? Don’t hate me. Just saying. 

You can keep playing with your cat for hours and hours and you won’t even get bored of them! Plus, they are soft like cushions. 

Yes, sometimes they won’t let you write or draw or chat with your friends, but it’s just them asking for your attention.

Summer Bucket List!

Since I wrote a bucket list for sisters, I thought ‘why not do a summer bucket list’ because obviously, it’s summer and some of you might be out of ideas for having fun on such an awesomely-hot-weather.

Before listing some of the things you could do, if you see something that you’ve already done the last summer or the summer before that or summers ago, why not do it again with different people this time? It would be fun, different and hell, different memories is all that matters, right?

  • I definitely want to do this sometime. Host a bonfire party at the BEACH! It’s always exciting to go in large groups—be it friends or family—and just sit in a BIG circle around the fire and talk and sing and eat s’mores. Also, at times like this, we tend to get emotional and occasionally, it’s not bad to let our feelings to our closet. Let them know your true emotions so that they can know you better.
  • Go on a vacation but there’s a catch to it. Don’t use your phone. Keep it only for emergencies but cut off all relations with your social buddies and just enjoy some peace of mind. Don’t let technology avert you from the beauty of nature. (Tweet that, it’s my own quote, lol)
  • Or if you don’t want to go on a vacation because you already went last month, then why not try taking a cooking class and learning some new recipes? At least you can feed it to your baby brother or sister and cooking is an art that take your stress away. Trust me. Plus, you can add that ‘chef’ in your bio if you think you’re too good already *winks*
  • Go to an outdoor music festival. I always add this in my list because I think it’s the most refreshing thing to do. I mean yeah, it could get a little sweaty but when everyone’s enjoying you don’t care about perspiration, you just enjoy the beats, the kicks and just let go.
  • Take a weekend off from your work, writing, blogging, dancing, singing and go on a road trip in an open jeep or truck or whatever you find pleasure in. Maybe camp out somewhere nice and once more, it’s the people and memories that matter, not the place.
  • Dip dye your hair with a color that defines the true you. It’s summer, man. No rules.
  • Go to a drive-in movie! And speaking of drive-in movie, I do have to say, #Riverdale is an awesome #Netflix series to watch this summer. It’s mysterious and it’s Archie, so why not?
  • Try some new restaurants that you thought you wanted to go to but didn’t have the time to. It’s also a good way to spend time with your beloved haha.
  • This might be boring, but why not try playing with your hair? If you love braiding your hair then try some new hairstyles and blog about it so that your hairstyle becomes the “trend” of the year.
  • Don’t forget to buy a retro style bathing suit because it’s chic.
  • Oh, and before doing all those things above, make a summer playlist so that you won’t have to be clumsy when someone yells, “play some damn good music!”
  • Go on a picnic maybe? Nah, too cliche? Not your type? Then spend a day at the water-park!!!!!
  • Call your friends, whoever they may be—bullies, cowards, nerds, jerks—and have a water gun fight. Take out all the anger, frustration and get that beast out of that petty cage! Go #hardcore girl!
  • This is a must. Watch the sunrise at the beach. It’s romantic, filled with feels and it’s good to capture a moment like that. If you have already done this then do it again because sunrises are always different.
  • You could also host a family game night! I know some of you would think it’s boring but believe me, it’s a lot more fun than you thought it would be. I won’t say the details, experience it yourself and perhaps, share it with me sometime if you want it.
  • If you have a clean, large, grassy patched backyard, then why not sleep under the stars?
  • Go bowling. It’s a must-do. I love bowling and it’s so competitive but not to mention, annoying when you can’t hit a strike after five or six rounds already.
  • You can learn to surf. Plus, when a girl surfs in a retro bathing suit, the boys always go ‘woo’.
  • Just Explore.
  • There are so many more things to do but you know what, this one’s a little less tiring than going to a game of baseball and less boring than just napping on a hammock…It’s Falling in love. Fall in love and your summer will be the best summer ever.

 

I hope you guys enjoy your summer because there’s still time for it to come to an end. There’s still time for you to make Polaroid memories and there’s still time for you to find your soul mate.

“Summer’s all about passion.”

Have fun and enjoy!

The Sister Bucket List!

Side by side or miles apart, sisters will always be connected by the heart.

We all have a big sister that hits us when we do something wrong and a small sister that annoys the heck outta us. But, no matter how overly caring or absolutely maddening they are, we love them and imagining life without them is in fact, impossible for us.

I have a big sister and like every sibling, we fight but we make up. We fangirl over things, we work out together, we do Karaoke when mom and dad are not home and we play Just Dance to our heart’s content! Oh, we also discuss important, heartfelt matters in the middle of the night. There’s nothing more gifted than having a sister who you can share your deepest secrets with. She will listen to you, she will give you hope, she will fight for you until the end and she will catch you when you fall.

What my point is, sisters are just damn amazing.

I know, what I said above was deep and all but in the end, after publishing this post, I’m gonna have a fight with my sister over something silly and probably after a few passing moments or when mom catches us fighting, we will get back together as if nothing happened.

Being on the same note, I have a tiny wish list of things that I want to do with my sister. Things like having an Asia tour or going on a road trip or going to our favorite band’s concert! Hopefully, one day we will be able to do all these but for now, let me give you a list of what you can do with your sister before you and she get separated or something…Just kidding…

Anyway, let’s get to listing~

  1. This one’s a must. Okay? A MUST! Go on a frickin road trip together cause that’s something where you can really create memories. Grab your car keys, grab your polaroid camera and just get the hell out of your house and out in the open road!

  2. Do you both love cooking or baking? If yes, then why don’t you try taking some cooking classes together or baking a cake or any sort of experimental desserts at home? That’s a fun way to pass time with your sister but don’t blame me if the kitchen gets messy.

  3. Call your sister right now and make an album of your favorite photos together! Decorate it with funny words and doodles and just laugh it off~ If you have already done it, then just strike this part away.

  4. You’re gonna like this one. Attend a weekend music festival. Yes, if you wanna go, don’t go with your best friend but go with your sister because best friends come and go but sisters stay for a lifetime! Sorry, that just came out of nowhere but the thing with going with your sister is that you’ll have her to talk about your favorite band mate for the rest of the days until you get tired of it yourself and trust me, she won’t even complain because she’ll be in it with you too~ *winks*

  5. Ooooo, this one’s pretty awesome. Dance a choreography together! Yaass! It’s just perfect and a mixed with fun and waves of laughter! At the end of your amazing routine, I’m sure you both will feel super proud to have done something together and that’s something you need to have

    as

    a memory~

  6. Have a drama marathon together. Pop some popcorn, grab your

    colas

    and watch until dawn because that’s just how we have to roll.

  7. Don’t forget to take a great photo together, alright? Memories are everything.

  8. And last but not the least, treasure your awesome relationship every single of the day!

Sisters are our first friend and second mother.

10 things you probably don’t know about me.

Of course, you just stumble upon my blog and read this post and be like, “I don’t even know you so why do I need to know you deeper?”

Well, let me just say that ‘We all Start as Strangers.’

Did you see what I just did there? I used the tagline of my own Novel…

*Sigh* but also because it’s fun to read and get to know other people, right? Like, you start to get to know about me and yeah, it’s interesting but then suddenly, you begin to feel a strange connection. A connection that can make us friends.

What if by knowing about me you find your twin? What if we have things in common? What if we know each other but we don’t?

Yeah, that doesn’t make sense but as a matter of fact, there’s no harm in telling a little about myself.

So, here’ the ten things you probably don’t know or want to know about me!

  1. I’m the Author of The 13: We all Start as Strangers.
  2. I am a Cat lover and I have a cat named Ginger.
  3. I love playing games!
  4. And also have a passion for dancing.
  5. I am a good artist too, though, not that great…
  6. I live in India.
  7. I love watching Anime’s and am a total fan of Fairy Tail and Death Note!
  8. I’m 18 (well, just turned a few days ago)
  9. I became a blogger for fun.
  10. I love chocolate chip cookues and doughnuts. (Lol)

I know, I know…Ten things isn’t enough to get to know someone but hey, this is a good start, right?

Do you find something that you have in common with me? If you do, then what are you waiting for? Come on, talk to me! Let’s become friends for a lifetime! Hahaha

Don’t worry though, I plan on doing these more often so that my readers will get to know me a little deeper and in depth.

It was fun writing this post.

So long,

I’m your Writer Next Door~

Random blabber.

So I went out today with my mom and the weather really annoyed me. I mean my clothes were sticking to my back and I was sweating and I was thirsty and I really wanted to pee but there was no washroom so I had to hold it and yeah…I didn’t like it. 

I crave Ghiradelli’s ice cream now.

And I wanna go someplace where there is snow so that I can roll and make snow angels. 

I started reading Book Thief by Markus Zusak and because there are a few german sentences in there, I began talking to German people on Hello Talk. I don’t even know why I’m reading that book but since I started it, I gotta end it, right? 

I haven’t met my school friends in like seven years so I’m really planning on having a reunion sometime this December but I’m also very nervous because I’m afraid they won’t remember me If I try and call them 😛 They would be like, “Who the hell is this?” 

Though, I’m 94% sure that won’t happen. 

There are times when I’m too desperate and impatient for people to buy my book but then after all the throwing of the pillows on the ground and stuffing a handful of Oreos in my mouth, I say to myself, “You didn’t write to become famous. You wrote because it’s your passion.” And that’s actually true because I didn’t publish my book so that I could get money. I published it because I wanted to see my own story and words in a hardcover and paperback and my dad fulfilled that wish for me. 

I love you, dad. He has supported me all the way and I am utterly grateful to him. My debut novel is, in fact, dedicated to him only. 

Anyway, thank you for reading this short blabbering part of mine and have a great day everyone. 

Don’t give up on things because your time will eventually come when you’re going to rise and rise and never look down again. 

So long~

I’m your writer next door.

Grandparents

Having Grandparents is the greatest gift anyone could ever ask for. It’s like having a guardian angel beside you to protect and prevent you from doing anything wrong and harmful.

Some people are quite unfortunate that they don’t get to see their grandmom and grandpa after their birth and that’s pretty sad because the joy of having grandparents is utterly infinite.

Also, some people just don’t care about their grandparents. They see them as just some ‘old people with memory loss problems’ but it’s not their fault. When you grow up, man, you’re going to have the same damn problem then let’s see whose grandkids treat you like you treated your own guardian angels.

My point is, grandparents are a gift. Don’t lose that gift. Their love is boundless, don’t throw it away, please. Your grandparents care for you. Your grandmom cooks your favorite food or bakes your favorite cookies and you might not remember it but when you were a baby and your mom wasn’t there to take care of you, your grandmom would stay awake for hours and hours just to sway you in her delicate arms and give you a goodnight’s sleep.

And your grandpa, he must have thought you so many things, must have given you so many good advices and bought for you so many toys just to see your cute little smile.

It’s concluded, they are the best. Grandparents are a piece of your heart, if you don’t have that piece of heart, your life isn’t complete.

Take care of your grandparents. Give them lots of love, lots of kisses and tell them, “I love you,” Every chance you get because you might never know when the world around you will start to shatter into a million pieces.
