The Month That Was.. August

August was a bitter chocolate chip cookie – bit into bitter pieces here and there but didn’t deter me from enjoying the cookie.


Anna Hazare dominated everyone’s lives (atleast mine) and the news as well. Independence Day just reminded me of how my country is going to the dogs, yet again. Didn't stop me from being inordinately proud of her though.

A full-of-birthdays month. I didn't get the first birthday cake :|I hold a grudge.

And started calling everybody 'the mantal bwoy'. 


A much awaited anniversary day, which was forgotten by who was supposed to remember, quickly became one of my Top Ten Favorite Moments in Life. The temporary amnesia was forgiven and forgotten (which is rare considering I'm an Arian).

A mostly important birthday came. And went. I wished and I didn’t get acknowledged. And that was the end of whatever little relationship there was.

Yet another realization:

 

Ragged a few juniors. Reminisced about how we came in the first year.
Gokulastami happened. And I fell in love with my own sari. Maybe they aren’t that bad after all.

I yearned for some good food and took out all my frustration on my blog. And instantly felt guilty for all the Muslims were fasting. I felt mean. 
Craved a Choco Lash Krusher from KFC for the whole month, one that was fulfilled by Mum yesterday. Twice over.

Found out MSM's real name:) So very pretty, it is <3
And promised myself I would stop writing such loooong posts.
And promised myself that I would stop procrastinating writing down the stories in my head. Again.

And my tattoo obsession is growing.
How do you write 'peace' in Arabic or Urdu?

And I wrote a quote, first ever:
“If you were single when I met you. Or if I were single when you met me.
Maybe things would have been different.
A story that ended before it even started.”
What d’ya think?
Oh and September, how YOU doin’?

P.S: Eid Mubarak and Ganesh Chaturthi ki shubhkaamnayein. Festivals come in tandem; maybe we should celebrate them together as well?
P.P.S: Anybody willing to teach me Urdu? A little bit will do.
P.P.S.S: Do check out this story. DO.

  1. Its been a bitter sweet month for me too, the only sweet thing being my birthday. And I promise you a whole chocolate fantasy dipping in chocolate sauce the next year! Lioness word :)

    And about the quote, it took me back in time. I met him when I was in a steady relationship. I couldn't do anything about it then. Thankfully the first part of the quote still hasn't happened yet. I guess I still have my chances considering how its been pouring rain all over my life :)

  3. :-)

    A rather eventful August you had, I should say. By the way, I never ever remember any birthdays. :P You got any tips for me ? I hope September is even yummier than August for you. :-)

    I did learn some basic Urdu including the alphabet, as my sister is a Muslim. I can try to help you get started if you'd like to. :-)

  4. August has been a blur of a month for me I think. Busy with work but loving every moment. Colleagues around me falling sick (though that started in July) and me feeling like the only full-timer at work! Your month seems to have gone pretty well.

    And by the way, could you please not put up pictures of yummy choc-chip cookies??? Makes my mouth water and worse, makes me crave them more!!! Not good when someone is trying to lose weight! :P

  5. Whaaaaaaaaaaat? Ragging, bad senior, bad :D
    DOn't make it too public, or you'll have to pay 25000 bucks :P

    And what was that quote? Mile jo chorra chorri, hui masti thodi thodi, bas pyaar ka naam na lena, I hate love stories? :P

    In short you had a birthday month without cakes?

    Cheers,
    Blasphemous Aesthete

  9. Your quote is exquisitely amazing!

    Peace is called Amun in Urdu, written as امن.

    I am an Arian too! *Highfives*

  10. Another supporter of Anna hazare, great !!
    "A mostly important birthday came. And went. I wished and I didn’t get acknowledged. "
    You wished on the birthday that was the best part, leave the rest..
    I love your quote ;)
    “If you were single when I met you. Or if I were single when you met me.
    Maybe things would have been different.
    A story that ended before it even started.”

    May you have rocking september ;)

    :D LOL. I'll try not to, but how can I refrain when I myself am drowning in drool:P

    @ BA, pffft I didn't wanna say but since you bring it up, the 'ragging' was calling them and asking their names. Bas. Haven't you heard about how lame my college is, they'll prolly suspend me if I sneeze, let alone properly rag.

    Uh huh. Bad bad birthday people:|

  16. Well, I don't know how September will turn out to be, but its begun in the best possible way. Thank you so much! :D :D

  17. I didn't understand the quote :(
    Chocolate dripped posts are always tasty. Sometimes I wonder everyone's life is so eventful, if I try upon an update post. It would eventually end up before it begins :|

  23. a bitter sweet month there... seems balanced... or in (maybe) your words - like having a bitter chocolate in one hand and a candy in the other :P

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yayyyy, you had a good and not so bad August. Mine was BAAAD Baaad! :( But I am so excited that you LOVED my name! No one ever told me that. I love you! :D :D <3

  25. A mostly important birthday came. And went. I wished and I didn’t get acknowledged. And that was the end of whatever little relationship there was.

    That was sad now. I mean, a part of you dies when somebody overlooks you like that. I've been to that place as well. And trust me, at some point, you gotta learn to stop giving a damn to these people.

    Well it's September, and here's you Pakistani Friend having her birthday so wish me. I am sure it will not go unacknowledged. :)

    So what's up with the quotation? It's good thought. Something tells me there's history to it. You don't sound really up in this post. Anything bothering maybe? Cheer up. Watch a movie or maybe just eat this cookie you've pasted a picture of. Believe me, stop caring, and life would be more awesome.

    Guess what Priyanka?! I lost 500rs. :/
    And i am in chaos. I don't even know why am i telling you this.

  26. I second spaceman, I second her so much :)

    Ragging isn't fun these days, juniors are so damn willing to do just anything :P

  29. Oh wait.... I thought I commented on this post.. but turns out I dint..

    Anyway...! My tattoo obsession has been going on since the past one year! Imagine! I am actually dreading september but at the same time waiting for it to be over.. 'coz I have some imp career choices to make at the end of this month and I am SO NOT looking forward to it.. :/

    I love your quote.. reminds me of a certain someone from a long time back.. Hmm... Life... Love.. Complicated man!

    I hope you have super awesome september! :)

  30. Lovely post. Right from the heart. Well I agree with several of your points. I loved your sari as well. And you looked really cute in it as well. And we should hi-5 on the tattoo obsession. And 'peace' is a lovely word to be tattooed. Your lines-mind blowing :). All in all, lovely post, as usual :P

    ReplyDelete
  32. well...sometimes one needs to be overlooked... i mean one wants a relation a sad one to end but then a birthday or an Eid day comes and the other person wishes you and you wishes them and the whole sad thing the sad memories start again.. :(

    i didnt know you also have quotes... next time i will search yours on Brainyquotes.com :P

    urdu is very easy especially if you watch much of bollywood movies that is more urdu than hiindi :)

    lolz @ tatoo obsession ...
