Let’s Own 2018

Humans, even the predictable ones do not love the idea of monotony. We all crave change, a clean slate, a fresh start that a NEW YEAR brings. Another chance to try for things we want, we need, we wish.

But, is it enough? Just having a New Year. Making a resolutions’ list, only to disregard it. Isn’t it so much comfortable to just go back to the old habits, feeling somewhat accomplished because we tried.

I watched a TED TALK the other day where the speaker said that the major problem with current living Humans is that we are okay with just trying. We do not strive to accomplish or to be the best. We believe it is healthier to be easy on ourselves but in this process, we forget to give our everything, to try with every ounce of energy we have, only because trying is enough.

At first, I thought that he is being unreasonable because the thought of accepting that I am also one of these Humans was not something I wanted to entertain but as I kept on watching and he kept on explaining, I was in the category he wanted me. It didn’t lead to an epiphany, but it was definitely a pinch from reality.

A pinch to wake me enough to start making changes, slowly. Today I start blogging again, I do not remember why I stopped, but It doesn’t matter anymore.

So, this year I am not just going to make resolutions, I am going to make a life I want. Because I don’t want life to be a ‘Moo Point.’

January 2017 Update

It was all right and very productive at the same time. I don’t know if I was responsible for this all right month or the so called people I know.

Just like every new year I was motivated, I was going to make things happen and I was going to be “me”. Oh, don’t worry I was me this month actually the whole month, it’s just I was the version I don’t want to be.

I did so much this month, I was so into my resolutions and was trying so hard to achieve them. And I managed to tick off 4 things off my list- 7 Cliches for 2017.  


I joined a course to learn french and I am really loving it. It is not as easy as I thought it would be but I do like a challenge so it’s perfect.

I also wrote a poem *yay, I am a poet*. Obviously, it doesn’t rhyme because I cannot rhyme, it is a free verse and I am actually pretty proud of it.

I found an amazing Chinese restaurant and the perfect thing about it is that it is in my area *low-key dancing*. And the food is “yum”.

I am also half way done with my room, it is not exactly a sanctuary right now but it is pleasing to my eyes.


Mentally- This month was a little rough, I had problems more than usual but somehow I managed to overcome them or maybe I just suppressed them like always. I don’t like talking about it which only adds to it and even if I do talk about it I don’t see a positive outcome.

Physically- It was all right. Still taking medicines, still visiting doctors and still don’t have a permanent solution to whatever I have.

Conclusion- I am ecstatic about the progress I have made and I am trying really hard to be the version of myself that I want to be. And it’s all okay.

Stay Awesome Humans.

7 Cliches for 2017

I have decided to start my blog with a list of resolutions for 2017 and I believe having an open list will force me a little well, a lot more to actually complete the resolutions. Most of them are cliches that have been part of the resolution list for years now but let’s just consider them new for this year just like every other year *wink*. I really want to have fun with my friends and family or random humans and not get stuck in the hole of “let’s make a plan”. I will make plans this year and every other year which will be succeeded. I just want to experience this world in the best way possible before it is just a land with drought and air becomes more poisonous. I love the line, “I want to live before I die, it’s the only thing that makes sense” and from now on I am going to live by it. Having a life worth remembering while I am experiencing the last moments on this earth is the only thing that makes sense.




I want to travel as much as I can. For me travelling is just going out of the house or walking through a street I’ve never walked before and this year I intend to explore everything I possibly can. I do not care about being a traveller or a tourist, I just want to TRAVEL.

6,909 languages are spoken around the world. It is kind of intimidating to think that there are people in this world who do not even know the language I speak and what if that person is important for my sustenance (hypothetically) so, I plan to learn a NEW LANGUAGE this year and possibly every other year. I already know 2 languages and then after adding the new language I will be left with only 6,906.

The creative side of me has forced me to include writing a POEM in this list. I love poetry, I think it is the purest form of expression and being called a poet is not the worst thing in the world (it is the best).




I want to make MY ROOM the cosiest and calmest place possible. I spend most of the time in my room when I am at home so I would like it to be a place full of positive energy and a sanctuary where I can feel fulfilled.

I am one of the people who have really bad taste buds and cannot figure out the proper taste of food ever. So, this year I intend to believe reviews and my friends for food. I would try to eat a new dish every week *try*. Food is the second best thing in this world because first is chocolate.

I have always been a quiet kind of person, more of a listener. This year I am going to embrace this trait of mine rather than feeling uncomfortable when people say *you should talk more*.

And last but not the least I would like to paint. I am not an artist, I do not paint on regular basis. But I do love the idea of presenting our imagination or thoughts to the world via art, it is just mesmerising.




These are just some of the cheesiest and the most innovative things I could think of for this year that I want to do and I hope you have made a list too. I wish each and every one of you a very very HAPPY NEW YEAR. I believe in you and your potential, you can do anything you want. Please don’t forget to be nice to each other oh and try to make this place a better place to live in.
Stay Awesome.
