Things got pretty serious. My mother had been insisting I accompany on her morning jogs and on these past two days I finally gave in. Which meant waking up at 5 am in the morning. No, it isn’t as fun as it sounds. Turns out a lot of moving is involved and the morning air hurts my face. Later, in another twist of events a cool/casual visit to the dentist turned important as I was prescribed an immediate root canal(operation?). So by the time I got out with a swollen lip and a numb tongue and had to make my way through a couple of busy Guwahati streets I was feeling almost heroic. That is till my BBC app showed the selfies of two Brazilian fugitives on the run talking about their escape on Facebook.
Wow. It’s been a while since I came back to this site and the 25 year old me would not have OKed the domain name nor the old posts written years back. I am out of ideas at the moment (on vacation at home after three semesters of grad school) but I am going to take some time out from doing nothing to maintaining some sort of a journal for the future me to judge.
I spent most of today’s morning finishing this book with my mother sitting next to me adorably sending out text messages wishing people for the new year. I spent the good part of the rest of my day with my sister trying to complete our goal of finishing Brooklyn Nine- Nine’s seasons on Netflix within the next couple of days. I am not sure I even like the show anymore, just the goal seems too important to let go of now. Had to negotiate between the both of us as to who would go downstairs to spend time with the family during the course of the day but all is good as Season 3 seems reachable by tonight. Then cruised through the evening with some canine canoodling, some post-rock and more videos.
I should really get some work done(or anything at all) before I go back to Bloomington but for now the Internet wins.
There were disagreements,
And bitter words spoken for the umpteenth time
But then it will all be washed away
Because there is talk amongst the clouds tonight.
