Golly, I needed a journal update. So where are we? Hmm, let's see. It's been seven months since the last update. Apart from being procrastinator in early 2013 and well, till mid of the year, I - drum roll, please - was able to put it behind! No more lazying around.
While yes, work is little slow but it gets done. It's February! Bet you already knew that.
My sixth semester has started and I am looking forward to the Summer, already. Already, yes.
This time will be a goner; just like the week long vacation that I had and I am left wondering where did it all go?
This start of the year has been fun. I've decided to read more books. I read a merge number of them the previous year. I have been watching too much
, I need to put the movies on hold. More writing and exploring! There are a couple of places in the city that I need to visit and photograph: there's the railway track I have my eye on for a long time now, a vintage house with these incredible unkempt yet lovely garden, this post office in Sadar. I hope I still have the guts to do it then: people aren't very pleased/calm/okay about the idea of a person with a camera in the hand and photographing places but oh well.
Two films that I would like to talk about. I saw Gravity and this I'll tell you, it doesn't even come close to Sunshine for me. Another: All Is Lost. It has just one actor starring in the film and hardly any dialogue. There's Our Man, the sea, his boat and mortality staring in his face. I somehow can't get it out of my head: I have always loved the idea of sea; the water waves and the wind; the crashing sound of the water against the rocks; the serenity of the evening with the water sweeping the shore but take this, in the sea, right in
the sea, man is little and helpless and there is little escape. So much water yet you can't drink it. Makes you think. Makes you -
Guess, enough said for an update -- why do I always say that?
Stay safe and awesome. And make sure you have a good weekend. Try French Toasts.
