Hey guys. I'm back.
It's been a slow Sunday on my end ie. lazing around at home, reading, snacking... though significantly less impulsively than before (I say as I realize that I've eaten some financier, apple and granola). Okay. Admittedly I've been slightly more mindful of what and when I eat now, ever since I've started this Ayurvedic thing.
But no. This post isn't about my gut health. Nor is it a new recipe post (y'all who came here for that can just make your u-turns now). It's just a Spontaneous Life Update (like how my pal Sher checks in on me regularly) and some links to things I've been doing/consuming. The eBay orders have arrived. Mum has realized that I do love a good bargain as much as her. Here we go.
It all started with my usual pilgrimage to the bakery and a coincidental run-in with a ginger juice shots.
Okay. Some context here: ever since New York, I’ve been borderline obsessed with ginger shots (like shots, but with a little more burn and a lot more health). So when my eyes caught sight of those shots in EGA, I went right for them.
That’s pretty much the story of how I was introduced to EGA (and bossman Sumit).
I've been feeling a little off lately. Off, in this lethargic, listless sense, somewhat hapless and mildly disoriented. Sure, I've been catching up with friends for a bit, and those are great, but it's starting to be like an emotional roller coaster. The hours in-between, when the party's over, neither here nor there. Being uninspired and unmotivated to do things, except lounge around and read the news or lesser works of fiction (thou shalt not be named). Don't get me wrong, reading the news is part of my Daily Routine, but somehow, its become tedious. Stories prove to be unengaging, and I can't stomach anymore politics. I find myself only having the appetite for Rice and Refinery29.
I've been in a bit of a rut. Not being sure of my voice, who I am, the future, Being a bit of a mess, essentially. I've been told that "of course you're not going to have your shit together and know who you are at your age", but the importance of it is just so blindingly obvious. I'm "not going to", but I need to. This is on top of ongoing Existential Crisis 2k18, regarding social media and Positive Image. Projecting A Positive Image Is Everything. What Is Oversharing. Am I A Sell Out. At this point, I refuse to get into the age-old "you are not your social media persona" tirade, because you could totally google that for yourself. The sentiment remains, though.
This post was supposed to be out on 3rd June, 2018. Its 10.21 pm of 5th June, now, and I'm lying on the bed typing this out in a seeming bout of insomnia (once more), after having tried (and failed) in finding something noteworthy to watch, and done with listening to music for the night.
Anyhow, its been a month. A bloody long month since I last put anything up here. And as always, so much has happened since, including eBay panic, exams, a tasting at JAAN (!! will drop a note about that somewhere, in a dubious near future), and post-assessment bliss, which I'm taking as an excuse to treat myself. Non-stop,
