83. Hi, Again

WhatsApp Image 2020-03-08 at 16.53.06Dear Readers,

Well, a lot of things happened from my graduation till now. But I’ve been lazy or sick to sit and write about them. So, here are the highlights:

My graduation went really well. I am a proud Bachelor’s degree holder. I had so much fun that night. The dinner with some of my friends and my teachers will be something that I’ll always cherish. I had an amazing weekend after that. I’d completed two years of something that I cannot be more proud of.

I drew my first ever mandal:

Drawing this mandal was probably the most therapeutic thing I learnt to do on my own. Probably not the best looking mandals, though. After this, I started changing things. I started learning to get more interested in things I’d lost interest in. I started developing a more positive outlook on life. There were people around me who were only negative and that started getting to me. I got advice from valuable sources and started changing that as well.

I then went for my first ever calligraphy class:WhatsApp Image 2020-03-08 at 18.53.11

Excuse the shabby spots and lines on the paper. Attending this was so much fun. I am so glad I could go. I found this to be supremely therapeutic as well. I’ll continue this for as long as I can.ย The next day I drove (alone for the second time) to the nearby mall to watch a movie with a dear friend which was fun. I also got the chance to clear the air and that felt really nice especially because it came from the bottom of my heart.

The first of March started off really nice. I got the chance to go back to my college where I did my Bachelor’s to attend a conference. I again got the chance to spend time with my professors and gain insights. It was a brilliant day!

After this, things went spiraling down. I fell sick. I couldn’t attend an exam. I was better by the weekend. Then again I fell sick on Thursday and I’ve been sick since. I couldn’t attend another exam. And this time when I fell sick, it was severe and scary considering what’s going on in the news. But I’m better today. Fever’s come down. I’m obviously still tired and not fit enough, but I’m much better compared to yesterday and the day before.

Well this is about me. The priority for this week would be to get healthy and catch up on everything that I’ve been procrastinating for so long and check all my boxes on my to-do list. How’re things going with y’all? What have y’all been upto? Please share your views in the comment section below and also like and share! Hope you all have a great week ahead ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Congratulations on your graduation ๐ŸŽ“!!

    Love the mandal! Very beautiful! Not something I could ever do!

    Sounds like you are having a really nice March! With the exception of being sick- glad you are ok!

    Well if โ€œtodayโ€ starts my week… itโ€™s going ok – so far (knock on wood) with the exception of not finding any Clorox wipes or hand sanitizer anywhere. ๐Ÿคจ eh but ya canโ€™t win em all – ordered online (is for work)

    Today was peaceful – had lots of work but was peaceful.

    Tmrw I get to be with high schoolers which I love…

    My crush wants to take me out and is showing interest- but I dunno… I am not really sure if thatโ€™s a good idea or if I am ready – I have a crush on him but we have an amazing friendship … and Iโ€™m just really not sure if ready or not… Iโ€™m a little afraid.

    But… we see how rest of week goes lol

    Congrats again – you sound really happy!! ๐Ÿ’—

    • Thank you so much.
      The mandal was something that boughts utmost joy to me so it means a lot to hear you say that!
      I’m glad you had a peaceful day.
      Hope your week went well
      I love working with kids as well ๐Ÿ™‚
      I’m 13 days late, but I’m curious about what decision you made with regards to your crush. It’s okay to be a little afraid though, that’s normal!
      And yeah, I am really happy ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I could not have done such a beautiful mandal… that must have taken some time and focus!! Which is probably why so beautiful! I still could not have done that though!! You have talent!

        Lol… well with the crush – we on isolation lock down at the moment so I have a excuse for a little while lol (whew!) ๐Ÿ˜„โœŒ๏ธ… but I dunno – I donโ€™t think I am really ready just yet, and there are a few things that are kind of important to me… I just want to slowly observe his actions – and I also need to lay out a few things – if he is ok with those things then we see.

        Iโ€™m not really totally comfortable seeing anyone yet.

        But thatโ€™s ok too. I donโ€™t want to rush into anything or start anything Iโ€™m not ready for or isnโ€™t right for me. I am cautious lol โœŒ๏ธ

      • It did take some time, thank you so much! ๐Ÿ˜€
        And with the crush, I’m glad you’re taking some time to think and are not rushing into it. You’re ready when you say you’re ready!
        It’s okay to not see anyone (just saying it in case you needed me to say it)
        It’s better to be cautious ๐Ÿ˜€
