Dear, Earth.

Dear, Earth.

Thank you for everything. Thank you for the beautiful trees and flowers. Thank you for the lovely weather. Thank you for providing oxygen for free. Thank you for the beautiful views. Thank you for EVERYTHING... Sorry for the forests we destroyed. Sorry for the climate change we caused. Sorry for using too much of plastic. Sorry for EVERYTHING. 

★・・・・・・★・・・・・・★・・・・・・★


This Earth's day, please be more gentle with mama nature, please be the change that you want to see. Remember: If you change nothing, nothing will change. A few simple changes counts, don't say that 'so many people are harming the earth, changing myself won't help.' well, it will. You live on this Earth. You can be the CHANGE. 
A few changes: 
  • Try to reduce plastic use. 
  • Turn the water/lights off when you're not using it. 
  • Plant trees/flowers. 
  • Educate people about how can we protect the earth. 
  • Cleanup wherever there is dirt. 
  • Walk/bike instead of using cars. 
Each and every change counts... I highly recommend you all to watch Before the Flood, a documentary that features Leonardo DiCaprio, scientists and world leaders discussing the dangers of climate change and the possible solutions. Also, you can watch this YouTube video featuring Dia Mirza, where she talks about living sustainable. 

We are the hope... Let's make a difference.

Beautiful Thoughts

Beautiful Thoughts

Be poetic. If you find the way the light falls through your window and onto your bedroom wall pretty, write about it. Call it soft and golden as sunlight honey. If it makes you glad to be alive then it's not silly. You look for beauty of things, be proud of that. Say the heavy rain is kissing you. Write about the glow of the moon, the dancing of the flowers. Make your world magical. Collect your metaphors and treasure them.  

☆☆☆


☆☆☆

And one day, the girl with the books became the woman writing them. 



When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow. 



Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on. 



Let's keep our words short and sweet, because we never know which ones will have to eat. 



When a woman knows who she is, she cannot be told to behave as the world would like her to. She cannot be coerced to act in a way that defies her truths. When a woman moves through this world confident of her being, she becomes a threat to anyone who would like to keep her in chains. 



The ocean is everything that I want to be. Beautiful, mysterious, wild and free. 



 The woman you are becoming will cost you people, relationships, spaces and material things. Choose her over everything. 



Free yourself from the illusion of good and bad days. Labeling time makes us nostalgic of the past and demanding of the future. There is only here and now. Let it be.

Key Benefits of Blogging

Key Benefits of Blogging


For me, my blog is like my online book of thoughts, where I can write and share anything I want, whenever I want. Today, I thought I'd share some key benefits of blogging. So, let's get started: 

IT'S A WAY OF USING YOUR VOICE: We all blog different things, and I personally believe, blogging is one of the ways to use your voice. Yes, you may get some unkind comments, but hey, you used your voice which is more important than anything. 

EXPAND YOUR KNOWLEDGE: Whether you're a computer fan or not, while blogging you definitely learn some codes or ways to get things done on your blog. Personally, I've been a blogger for almost a year now and I've learnt better cool stuff. Plus, you'll learn how to take better pictures and edit them. Also, you'll know websites have offers copyright-free photos and more. 

MAKE NEW FRIENDS: I know, i know. It takes time, but it's worth it. You'll gain a friend, who might live in another part of this earth and might have another language but you both have the same interest. Isn't that interesting? 

GET YOURSELF BUSY: Let's face it, we spend hours and hours absolutely doing nothing. So, if you blog, you'll spend those hours on your blog. No time wasted here. 

FEEL HAPPY: I know that blogging is stressing, taking pictures, editing, brainstorming and more. But, in the end, you'll feel happy when people give you their feedback or appreciate your hard-work.  

That's all for today, wonderful people! Is there any other blogging benefit I missed? Please feel free to share your thoughts. Talk to you soon.

Spring Break

Spring Break

So, my spring break is over! Now, back to college and assignments... Before the break began, I planned that I'd finish all my assignments, but... anyways, I finished one of them... 'don't judge me'
I really enjoyed my time so I thought I'd do a blog post about what I did in my spring break. 
Day one of my break wasn't lovely because as I've mentioned in my bio 'I'm a moody and foodie who blogs' - anyways, the other days were pretty lovely! I filmed a YouTube video + Edited it. Also, I began watching The Crown season two, I also watched movies with my dearest sister. Movies such as Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, Rustom, Bhoomi, Hassena Parker and Baadshaho! I really enjoyed watching all of them. I attended a party hosted by my mother's best friend & I went on a car ride with my sister. That's it! // How was your spring break? Plus, did you watch any of the movies I mentioned above? If you didn't watch them, I highly recommend you to watch them! [They are Bollywood movies] - Talk to you soon! 

PS. That's my 50th post!

Short Horror Movies

Short Horror Movies

Sometimes 'always' I lay on my bed, refreshing YouTube home page in hope to spot something worth a watch 'we all do this'... Right? So, one day I was watching Will Farrell as Little Debbie 'don't judge me' and my sister said, 'I just finished watching a short horror movie, you'll love it.' So, I watched it with her 'after hours' and I loved it, so I thought why not to share my favorite short horror movies with my wonderful readers! You don't have to refresh YouTube page for a while... Let's get started 🢒











That's all for today! Please let me know if there any other good ones // Talk to you soon! <3
