#ThirtyTrinkets Day 11

I’m finally home after a short hiatus at college. I wanted to write this post the night I was traveling, but lethargy.

This pair of small cute, black studs was gifted to my by me ex. No, not that kinda ex.  My! Your imagination runs. Alright, it was a gift from Priyanka who was my roomie for year one of college. She’s this bubble of energy who can charm even the most reserved people. I couldn’t even believe that she had a science background in her graduation because she’s just the perfect journalist that I’d always pictured in my head. And we’ve parted Ways on the room front to accommodate other people, but we’re always bumbling into each other in the corridors or rooms.

I was trying to read The Alchemist but I could progress much as I had the night bus and I was travelling with a friend. There’s something very comforting about travel that it relaxed you and opens you to a whole lot of thoughts that you wouldn’t normally have if you were sitting in your bed and wondering what to do.
Anyway, this time, on reaching Bangalore, I took the local Bmtc bus instead of a plush cab. It was pleasant weather and the ride, although an hour in itself, was relatively peaceful. Not many people know I’m in the city, it was such a hasty decision after all.

More on Bangalore Times, later. Adios for now!

#ThirtyTrinkets Day 7

Back in sixth grade, when I was friends with the three wonders of the world, Natty always used to say this particular phrase that I’m reminded of, everytime that I see this pair of earrings and I instantly want to wear them.

Her phrase? ‘Kismat ka taala, khul gaya!’ it’s so cute when a twelve year old says something like that with. You just want to stop what you’re doing and state.
Yes, these earrings are from Riyadh. I still have a couple of trinkets from Saudi that are personal favourites and this is one of them. I was too sleepy yesterday, and there was a lot of gossiping in my room, for me to take time off and write yesterday’s. So it’s the first thing I’ve done today. As I write this, I’ve already made up my mind to bunk the first hour of lecture, do some laundry and finish off some long pending work. And guess what! Imma meet Saman the Baman today. If you don’t already know her, scroll back until you find the post and have a good laugh!
Adios, amigo 🙂
