Gone are the days when you had to type in a few jumbled letters and numbers to access a site or profile, because that test doesn't seem to trick the bots anymore. It's not totally a bad thing because in retrospect, I actually sucked at decoding the jumbled letters. I used to confuse the zeros with alphabet 'O' and vice versa. Same with number one and 'l'. And as if that wasn't enough they started adding squiggly lines and eliminating the spaces between the letters!
It usually goes Karma is a B****. But given how Karma can wave her magic wand and bite you back any moment she wants I would like to call her a Witch. Because, a witch she is.

In the past two years that I had taken a break from blogging, there were tons of instances when I thought 'Huh, that would be a fun experience to write about.' But now that I'm actually staring at my tab, … Continue reading The Bermuda Triangle of ideas and other stuff

Quick life update since my previous post (back in 2018) - my exams went well; I started working as an Interior Designer which pretty much means you have very little time for a social life, let alone blogging. But still, I met a guy, got … Continue reading Begin again. And again, and again..
So, the last time I posted a blog was almost 10 months ago. Ever since, I've been too busy to get my brain to spare some time for typing something new. Busy doing what? Well, let's see - I quit my job, changed my career and started doing something that makes me happy (Yayy), which … Continue reading The Art of Deprioritizing
