I Have Not Been Kidnapped, Murdered or Sold To Slavery!


The random female is back! I mean me. Long time no see! Probably because I have not been posting much. Or at all. Because I am lazy and am about to come up with about three excuses for not posting, none of which actually hindered my posting. Anyway, so since I have been AWOL, for reasons not mentioned, a lot has happened. I managed to pass my first year of college, for one! I actually managed to pass! Even though I studied for like, one day, I kid you not. But whatever, I am officially in second year. Which is also about to get over in about 5 months or so.

My not-a-relationship with Mexican Chocolate (remember him?) is going pretty well… I have passed the oh-my-god-i-just-know-you-like-my-friend-and-are-going-to-ask-her-out-soon-thus-you-are-alienating-me phase. It was not a pretty phase. I made sure we fought too much and cried like a corporation water supply tank. But it is over now, it is sunny with chance of kisses in NotARelationshipVille. I am happy now. At peace with my ass-biting insecurities that are now dormant.

As  far as college is concerned, it is not getting over fast enough. My selection exams are going on and I am going to fail each of my 7 papers because, I HAVE A PUPPY!!!! You read that right, I have a puppy! She is a Labrador, a black Labrador, named Mickey. She is two and a half months old and pees like there is no tomorrow. She pees 17 times a day, shits 4 times a day. She eats plastic, remote controls, slippers, shoes, tables, walls, leaves, clothes, bags, hair that is preferably attached to one’s scalp, bed sheets, books, newspapers and occasionally proper food. Her effed up diet is the reason I will fail all my papers because every time I decide to sit with my books, she decides that she must eat something inedible and I have to chase her around the house, body slam her and forcibly extract the remnants of what used to be peace from her mouth. Life is hectic at the moment. But I love her! And she loves to chew my hair and hand and clothes and shoes, so I will take the liberty of concluding that she loves me too.

So anyway, I recently went to Delhi, Agra, Mathura and just touched Rajasthan during Christmas. I shopped looooads, for myself and friends, I saw historical monuments like Taj Mahal, Agra fort, Fatehpur Sikri and I ate dal makhni twice every single day. I gained weight, knowledge and clothes. I met my school friend in Delhi. We shopped, we ate, we drank (just a little bit), tried flavored shots (revolutionary stuff, I tell you!) and clicked so many pictures! And then we came back before new year. For new year I went  to a house party with my best friend, had fun, danced a little, blah blah blah. So, HAPPY NEW YEAR! What, I am only 15 days late… 😀

So, what did you guys do on Christmas and new year? Any new year resolutions? I refuse to make any since I never ever ever follow through anyway. Post the 5th of jan, all my resolutions are forgotten! So tell me about yours! And also tell me if you followed through last year’s resolutions… 😀

See you in some days!

p.s. thank you annamfranco, for following my blog recently! The notification I got in my mail informing me of the follow is what made me want to post again! So thank you! ^_^

Byee!

Ten Things I Like About You


You know who You are. Well actually, maybe not. Because You won’t be reading this. Anyway…

 

1. You are reliable. I wouldn’t think twice about drinking till I forget my name if I know that you’ll be there around me. Because I would know that no matter what, I’ll reach home safe and in one piece. Although, after the last time, I would think ten times before drinking recklessly when you are around. A million angry and disappointed looks are more than enough for one lifetime. And I will never ever drink recklessly without you around anyway. So I guess drinking recklessly is not an option. Ever. 😛

2. You are straightforward. Even if you don’t say something, it’s more than obvious in your body language. But chances are, you’ll say it anyway. And you wouldn’t lie about anything. You may avoid answering certain questions, making the answer quite evident, but you wouldn’t lie.

3. You don’t see me as just your teacher’s daughter. This is not something I can say for any other IHMite, barring three or four people. You see me as Ana, an individual, who is your friend. And just happens to be the daughter of your teacher. Which I really am grateful for.

4. You take your time. You don’t rush into anything like almost every other male I have ever come across. That is what makes you a man and not a boy. And you know my mother loves and respects you for it. 😀

5. You care. About me, about everyone and everything. You are one of the very few guys I know who genuinely CARE about me. And this always comes to me as a surprise. I know guys who have liked me and dated me and found me sweet and what not, but none of them have ever cared about and for me the way you do. And I adore you for that.

6. You told me you wouldn’t be able to be here for my birthday because you were out of town, but you came. And I seriously love you for that. My day was already brilliant and it was made super special by my friends, but I was still a little sad because I thought you wouldn’t be there. But you were. And you made my day.

7. Your smile. I swear on pasta, the cuteness it radiates literally turns me into jelly. You smile at me and it takes me all my strength and willpower to keep from swooning into a heap of mush. 😛 Trust me, SRK’s smile doesn’t hold a candle to yours.

8. Your eyelashes. Sooooo long and curly!! Wasted on a guy, I tell you. But so beautiful! I could honestly stare at your eyes all day long for the rest of my life and be content. Also, the way you sometimes avoid looking at me. It’s so cute! It’s like, you will look EVERYWHERE but at me! Be it a tree, or the sky, or a stray dog or the sidewalk! Anywhere BUT at me! And while you so strategically avoid letting your eyes set on me, you have that smile on your face, that’s somewhere between a laugh and a coy smile, it’s beyond cute. In fact, that look should be made illegal.

9. You actually admitted that you like me. No chasing games, no playing hard to get. You just straight out admitted that you like me. I didn’t think you would. But you did. And the fact that you like me, that counts too. 😀

10. YOU. You are you, and I adore you for that. I love your personality. I love what makes you so you. Whether you are short or tall or thin or fat, doesn’t make a difference to me. As long as you are you, I don’t care if you gain a 100 pounds or don’t shave for months or don’t trim your hair for years. I don’t care. I would still like you just as much. Although, I bet your college teachers wouldn’t appreciate the Neanderthal look much. 😀

 

So anyway, notice that these are THINGS that I like ABOUT you, not REASONS WHY I like you. Because that list would only contain one item: I don’t know. I like you because I just do. I can’t help it. I can’t not like you. Not even if I tried. I wouldn’t be able to list the reasons why even if my life depended on it.

Anyway, I hope you never read this. Unless I ask you to. Which I probably won’t. Ever. Because you know how conscious I get when people I personally know read what I have written. So imagine how skittish I would get if people I personally know read what I have written about them!

Note to my readers (which probably doesn’t include you): HELLO! I just randomly decided to make that list. I have no intentions of ever letting him read it, though. I would die of…well, something if he ever did. Because then he would know just how much I like him! Anyway, guess what? My final exams got postponed. By a month. -_- And my birthday just passed. So did my best friend’s. I’ll post about that later though. I am sleepy now. It’s 1:20 AM here. So, hasta la vista, people!

The Happiness Project, Week 4


And once again, I am extremely sorry that i missed the Sunday. My net went down… But here I am anyway, with the fourth and the last task! 
The last task is by far the easiest. or the toughest, if you are not comfortable with expressing yourselves. I, for one, am not. I would much rather sit on a stove and read a book than express emotions openly, entirely and honestly. So, as much as I hate doing this to myself, the last task is- Tell the people you love that you love them and how much they mean to you. Simple, right? Not so much. Just the thought of it makes me nauseous. 

Anyway, next Sunday (and I promise it WILL be on Sunday), I will post a picture of the bag I painted for my friend and the pebble as well! ^_^
Bye for now! 🙂

The Happiness Project, Week 3


Sorry sorry sorry I missed a Sunday! Well, yesterday. I had an exam today and it completely slipped my mind! But anyway, I’m here now. 😀 So, did anybody do either of the previous tasks? I did! ^_^ I gave my friend a hand-painted bag, I painted the cartoon depiction of One Direction! She is a directioner. 😀 And so am I! ^_^ Anyway, the task for this week is very easy and will hardly take you 15 minutes to do! Paint a pebble. Paint a heart or a smiley or anything on a pebble and leave it outside, anywhere on the road or in a garden or somewhere, where someone can find it. It will make whoever finds it smile. 🙂

And as usual, you can write a blog post about it and leave me a link, or post a picture and leave me a link or keep it to yourself, whichever you prefer! ^_^

And next to next Sunday, that is the week after the last week of the project, I will also post pictures of the bag I made and the stone I will paint and of the last task, whatever I decide it to be! 😀

 

The Happiness Project, Week 2


So, it’s week two for our project! Did anybody do last weeks task? I sure hope so 🙂
The task for this week is- Give something handmade to someone! Make them smile, let them know they are special. It can be anybody! Your best friend or soul mate or boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife, sister/brother, friend, mother/father, any relative or even your mailman! Anybody at all! And it doesn’t have to be something extraspecial or supercomplicated! It can be anything, a muffin or a card or a cute button glued onto a hairclip! Anything. Just make someone smile. 🙂

And then you can click a picture and upload it and leave me a link, or blog about it or keep it to yourself. Whichever you prefer, as long as you do it. You have time till next Sunday! Have fun, and don’t forget to smile! ^_^

P.S. Look at what my friend Ritwika and I did to him! He is Rahul, and he deserves a sainthood. 😀

Just remember Rahul, I loooove you! :DAnd you will be convicted with manslaughter charges if you kill me.

Just remember Rahul, I loooove you! 😀
And you will be convicted with manslaughter charges if you kill me.

The Happiness Project


Happiness. The one thing that makes the world go round. Well, money too, but money kind of makes us happy so it just boils down to happiness. There are many unhappy people around you. I’m sure you could spot them if you look close enough.

ImageSo, I have for you a month long project. It should be fun, really. At the end of each week (say, every Sunday), I shall give you a task to do (so, a total of juts four tasks!), which I will be doing myself as well. And you will have the whole week to do it. You could click pictures of it or write about it or tell me about it through a comment or just keep it to yourself, whatever you prefer. But try and do it, that is all I ask of you. It will basically aim at making a friend or a stranger happy. BUT, you will have to do so anonymously. Up for it? 🙂

I guess we could start from today. So the task for this week will be- Write anonymous notes, they may be one-liners or whatever, complimenting the person about something or just saying something nice about him/her. Something that will make him/her smile. Put the note in an envelope, if you want, and leave it on his/her desk/bag/locker etc. Just try not to make it sound like an anonymous love letter, because I don’t want to be blamed for any embarrassing situations because somebody saw you putting a note in somebody’s bag. 😛

Have fun, lovely people!!

P.S. I got a new laptop!!! My first ever laptop!!!! I am so excited! It’s a Dell Inspiron laptop and that is where my technical knowledge of this magic device ends. 😛

The Ridiculously Photogenic Guy


Hello my fellow earthlings!
Ok, don’t ask me what that’s about ’cause I don’t know.
Anyway.

For the past couple of days, I’ve had absolutely nothing to do. So like any other teen, I’ve resorted to Facebook to pass my time. I mean, a little Facebook stalking the ex-boyfriend doesn’t hurt anyone now, does it? But when I was done stalking their walls and pictures, I decided to aimlessly surf around a bit. And nowadays all those pages with funny pictures all over them are so popular. All the memes and all. Weird pages, I tell you… I mean, pages like “The guy above me has been raped by Justin Bieber” or “I can talk in hyperlinks as well” are just dumb, if you ask me. Funny, but dumb.

Anyway, so I came across LOADS of pictures of the Ridiculously Photogenic Guy. Heard of him? Yes? No? Well, I’ll tell you what he’s all about. He is the new face of the world wide web. Nah, just kidding. But he’s damn famous. And no, he’s not  famous for being a movie star or a singer or a band member or director or producer or instrumentalist or anything of that sort. He’s famous for being ridiculously photogenic. Yes, you heard me right. Well, read me right…

Here’s the story- Zeddie Little, a guy whos photograph was taken while he was competing in the 10km Cooper Bridge run in his hometown of Charleston. And even mid-run, his photo was perfect. A million dollar smile, the sun highlighting his perfect hair, looking all happy and non-sweaty. Basically, even in a random photo of his which was clicked while he was running, he looked better than I would if I posed for the camera.  Honest. Ridiculously photogenic, I tell you.

Mr Little said: ‘It was a fluke to be honest. We figured it out…I was running and waving at a friend who was on the sidelines. I turned around and I caught a camera lens… and that’s history.’

The photo was uploaded and he literally became popular overnight. One photo. Beats my 600 photos on  Facebook, hands down. Bleh.
He is now known as the Riduculously Photogenic Guy. He showed up on a morning show on national TV as well! For being photogenic! Beat that! Talk about being at the right place at the right time… His photo has been the source of memes as well. Check ’em out
