No matter where I am, this little space of mine on the internet is the only space I believe that I truly belong to. I can be who I am and write about what and how I feel. I feel at my best when I'm here, writing.
I have been suggested often that I should write on topical issues, on gender and women empowerment. But I avoid to write on it for certain reasons. Therefore, this place is a happy place of mine where I mostly write on personal musings.
Since this space has been abandoned for a little over a month now I thought I will update you on my life lately. So I have been;
Listening to: Love me like you do by Ellie Goulding from the movie Fifty Shades of Grey. I just didn't like the endings in both the movie and the book. I know this is a wrong remark since it's a trilogy. Anastasia’s role was executed perfectly in the movie but somehow I feel that the role of Christian Grey was not given justice. Atif Aslam’s Jeena Jeena and a lot of classics have been on my playlist lately.
Watching: The Best of Me, based on the book by Nicholas Spark. I cried my eyes out and at one moment of time, I thought I was choking. It has left me so heartbroken. I knew this would come, that’s why I avoided the movie for the longest time. Spoiler’s Alert - be prepared to shed gallons of tears if you plan on seeing the movie. Nicholas Spark never fails to mesmerize me. His books are the best when adapted into movies.
Reading: On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King. It’s a memoir of the author’s experiences as a writer. I recommend the book to those who plans to write a book. It will serve you as your guide. I’m also reading The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and Dance Dance Dance by Haruki Murakami.
Thinking about: The tragedy in Nepal and its aftermath. I pray that the people of Nepal find comfort and the strength to recover soon. And pray for those lost souls and their families.
Loving: The gloomy weather. It seems like we will not see the summer weather since it’s still gloomy and sometimes cold. But I’m not complaining. Though it’s gloomy the weather has been warm and perfect for a little stroll towards the evening. I did a massive spring cleaning at home over the weekends. So I’m ready to welcome the summer anytime soon.
So my blog buddies, what have you been up to lately? I missed this space and the little conversations we used to have. I'm sure we can continue from where we last left. In fact, I never left. Have a lovely week ahead.
