Wasted Sunday.

  • Woke up at 10 AM and still did not wish to wake up.
  • Skipped breakfast, but compensated with two cups of coffee.
  • What I exactly did till noon, even I can’t fathom.
  • Had lunch, and just after lunch, I had the strong urge to go back to sleep again.
  • Resisting everything, I tried to focus and study!
  • Nope, not my day.
  • My stomach started to ache acutely again, shutting down the left over wish to study.
  • I switched on the TV, watched a whole movie. What was it? ‘Our brand is crisis.’
  • In the evening I tried getting out of my bed, but the pain was throbbing and I had no intention of even going out of my room.
  • A novel saved me.
  • I had an early dinner, followed by a huge tub of ice cream. Really spoiling myself.
  • Half tub of ice cream was accompanied by another movie. Which one? ‘Runway bride’
  • Movie and a slow eater of that almost milk shake kind of ice cream made it till I don’t know what time.
  • Again the urge to sleep. But it wasn’t late enough.
  • So I kept myself busy with the novel again. As always, it worked.
  • Late in the night, I was about to turn off but then the phone kept buzzing.
  • All kinds of people texting me simultaneously. Where were they the whole day? When ‘I’ was bored?
  • I reply for a few minutes trying to make it short, but the conversation gets interesting with a couple of people, and I continue.
  • It’s 1 AM now and it’s really time to sleep. I wish them good night, and then go off to bed, finally!
  • Oh, I don’t even feel guilty. Should I? I think, I should but the thing is I don’t.
  • So there, that’s how I wasted my Sunday.

      1. Hmmm. I remember reading this once somewhere. An engineer is an engineer, no matter what. He could be a bad engineer, mediocre, good, excellent engineer, but he is still an engineer. He doesn’t say since my engineering is bad, I am not an engineer yet, but Writers hesitate to call themselves so because they aren’t writers on their personal satisfaction. The point of that was, If you write, you are already a writer 🙂

  1. LOL! looks like you had an almost bummer of a day. But maybe that stomach ache was because of the coffee on an empty stomach. It happens to some people, like me. I get KILLER acidity if I take coffee on an empty stomach and then don’t eat anything substantial for quite some time.

      3. No no no. I am not a writer with a flowing pen. I challenged myself last month that I will post something everyday. But it disnt work out, reason? Heavy downpour and my wifi out because of it. So I am trying to do this month. I hope i dont skip any day in august.
        Plus you must have seen sometime I just ramble on. The reason is simple. I dont share and talk kuch with my friends or anyone as such. You know the reason. Thwy dont listn. So I like sharing it here, at least someone cares here.

      4. Wow…. thats a nice challenge to yourself!! ..i tried it once just as part of fun with a dear blogger friend and it took me some effort to come up with something new each day!!…and reason for me would be lack of time and ideas!! 😛..but you are doing good I see!!
        I saw the ramblings and you will be surprised to know that i loved it… because that’s the state im in sometimes…just dont show it!!
        I can see the reason for those outbursts…if no one is thr to share or care to listen then you cant do much!! Same happens with me…days go by when i even speak anything..when i yearn for anyone to pay attention…no one to share…reply to a normal ‘hi’ on whatsapp gets answered after days!! So everyone is busy and everything gets bottled up inside me and i need an outlet…so i write…!! And that’s why I started blogging too..to share a little if not all… people read and comment and are really nice than those around!! … Something is better than nothing…but it does turn out to be dark and depressing which sometimes may not be liked!! But I like the way you put it out.. keeping it engrossing!!

      5. Thanks Sifar.
        We can’t do much in this regard. I know talking helps, but talking only to a ‘listener’ helps. And since we don’t have listeners we do it here. It helps me. Yes, to a large extent it does. I hope it helps you too. If nothing just post whats going on in your mind.
        By the way why no new posts? I’d love to read something form you!


      6. You said it so right…. talking only to a listener helps!! I know because i had such friends once and with them it was always so nice and a rejuvenated feeling each time we communicated…i could feel alive!! It really works wonders!!…but with time things change and you lose them. So i picked up writing….it helps..but i cant post everything on wp…people will unfollow the negative whiner!! 😛
        No new posts because i was feeling depressed for a while now. So just reading and commenting for now. Also one of my fellow blogger friend lost her brother so i didn’t feel like writing as a mark of respect. So all these days thinking a lot and trying to analyze myself and understand myself and what to do next..for the past two have been holed up in my apartment.. looking at the sky, the clouds, the rain…have not stepped out at all!!…writing a lot but then the fingers start hurting… it’s silent all around with the mechanical noises only… day dreaming….fighting nightmares…🙄
        Btw i also edited the ebook! Will send the link to you
        Will post something too… someone looking forward to it makes me motivated!! 😊

      7. Hmm… actually wanted to avoid that since that may remind the bereaved person of the loss and may defeat the purpose! So just lying low. Will start posting soon. Thanks for looking forward to it!!
