drafts and a short break

I haven’t written since day nine. I was feeling very low. But I am good now. Though my exams have started. I won’t be active for a few more days. I have to take a short break from writing. The moment I beat my previous month views in a single week of the next month, I was forced to take a break. But I will be back. I have also deleted a total of 186 drafts, dating as back as to January 2016. I wanted to make a fresh start. I will be posting my second post of the ‘where things go wrong’ series in a couple of days.

It’s my birthday today! 🙂

day nine // 2018

It grew on me.

Throughout the day.

Tears trickled down.

Thoughts came faster than ever.

They stuck with me.

They were not leaving.

They were asking me.

I said NO.

I screamed NO.

They stayed.

I started hitting things.

I started hitting my laptop.

I turned it off.

I ran back to my room.

On my bed, in my blanket.

I slept.

I forgot.

day eight // 2018

It was a really normal and boring day till I signed up for courses at the Blogging University at WordPress.com. I thought I couldn’t write a haiku anymore but then I wrote one! After 25 days, finally! It was the Day 1 “to do” in one of the courses. It felt great! And I think I can write more.

I learned a new word – forlorn.

day seven // 2018

I was home the whole day. I rested. I studied. I took a bath in the evening. I started the series “where things go wrong: building a student body in your school“. I so want this series to have a great response. I hope people like it. I am feeling grumpy. I won’t disturb you much. I often use a funnel to put back the extra coke that I pour-in when guests are home. I feel like a scientist! But that’s not what a scientist would do I suppose. My sister finds it funny. The amount of time I put in to pour back the coke. But then this effort is worth the time because neither do I end up drinking extra nor do I waste it.

where things go wrong: building a student body in your school

Back in 2013 I first heard about the Student Council (SC) in my school. Ten years in the school and I had no clue we had a student body. I don’t know if it was me who hadn’t heard about them as I rarely left my class or it was them who couldn’t make their presence felt among the students.

That year a lot of my classmates’ elder siblings were inducted into the SC. And that’s how I got to know that the SC exists! As far as discipline related issues were concerned they took good care of them all. I guess all of them didn’t work as required by the school and didn’t get inducted the following year.

Ever since 2013, I have known a good number of SC members. I have seen them work and I have seen them not work. I had always thought that they were an organised piece of shit, working without a pay to bring a change in the school. At least that’s what I thought. Bringing up projects they thought would help students to gain new skills, improve their skills and showcase their skills. We rarely got to know about these projects. These projects rarely took place. Continue reading “where things go wrong: building a student body in your school”

day six // 2018

I got up at 8 today. But it took me some time to get ready for the wedding. It does not take me more than 10 minutes to get ready but because of a headache, it took me some time to take a bath and then get ready. I reached the wedding around 1 p.m. The decorations were b-e-a-utiful! Purple, golden and silver themed decorations. The flowers on the top and on the stage! The chandeliers on the top! And the tables! Everything was b-e-a-utiful!

It was Sukhman’s eldest sister’s wedding. Gurmehr, Saksham, Punya, Deepakshi, Amreen and Vritty were also there. Sujata ma’am, Rakshit and Karan too! They all are awesome!!!

It looked like a high-stress day for Sukhman. Of course, it was his sister’s wedding he would be emotional. And then all the guests, interacting with them and greeting them. And also managing all the arrangements. But he still had his winsome smile. 🙂 Continue reading “day six // 2018”
