Reflections- August


Print
I feel I have missed so much. Last week was more than crazy. I had a few important submissions, tests and other classes to schedule. Writing took a backstage for the whole week and I felt miserable about it. I’ve missed reading so many of you last week :(. Sometimes I wonder how do you manage at all to write at this spectacular consistency?! I really need to learn this. Any suggestions please? Second part of the week was spent in my hometown. With the family, with all the close relatives and the joy of being with people who I love so much during festival couldn’t be any better!

This month gone too... I wonder what the hell is wrong with time?! The month started with friendships day and it was a day well spent. Seeing the smile on the faces of those children cherishes me every time I think about them. A few celebrations here and there and I were all energized! Two of  my posts got published which I wrote this month. I was more than happy. It does give you a push, at the moment when you feel a little low about yourself. The last prompt from Magpie Tales, was the kind of write that I had never written before. A little BOLD. And people really liked it. This month I’m hoping to write more on that.

Some odd eating habits creeped in me. I wasn’t enjoying the regular meal being cooked at home and thus I ended up eating outside on almost each day: P.

I love to shop... who doesn’t? :P This month I picked up lots of stuff and enjoyed every bit of it. I saw Baahubali and Drishyam. Baahubali.. the graphics were spectacular, but beyond that there was nothing that excited me. The second part of the movie, it’s plot and the strategies used were inspired from Game of Thrones. No it wasn’t much, just a part of it. Made me wonder what has happened to the taste of people around me. Drishyam, on the other hand, was truly engrossing. The plot, the characters, the acting, the story... gripping it was. One brilliant movie in a long time.

As much as I was stuck with other important stuff last week, I got a good break from blogging. And this month I’ll try to stick with my writing regime. Not to mention August gave me so much!!

I think that’s it for now. What did you all month? What movies did you watch? How were the rains? There were hardly any here, that’s why I didn’t mention any :P.
Linking it with #MondayMusings- Write Tribe

Till then

Happy Reading

  1. Loved your list and it's good to know that you had a good month. I had a fine one too. Movies - old ones but liked Gone Girl and The Fifth Estate and yes Piku too. Can't believe today is already September 1 :)

  2. Sometimes it's good to have a break from the online world and live offline :) Sure you may have some writing withdrawals but you could always just write in a notebook. Movies -- I watched 'Last cab to Darwin' which is an Australian movie and loved it. There were others I wanted to watch too but haven't had the time juggling full time work, university two nights a week and exercising 4 to 5 times a week. Can't wait for things to ease up a bit. Thanks for linking up!

  4. Never apologize for living life. It makes for great blog subject matter. After all that is what writing is all about, writing about life.

  5. Good to see that you had a good month, full of movie-viewing and eating out. And, don't worry, Geetika, I too get those urges, of eating out, eating a variety of food on a daily basis. But, since I began learning yoga, this 'bhoot' of eating right has crept into me and I have to let go of my cravings. I, too, saw Drishyam. But, that is all. No more movies for me. Can't sit through those torturing three hours at times.
    May you have a good September, too! But, do remember to live to your heart's content. Live and of course, eat! :-)

  7. Happy to read about your good month Geetika. I enjoyed Dhrishyam too. Haven't watched Bahubali. Gone Girl wasn't that much of a surprise for me because I read the book before watching the movie and I must say, there are many more details in the book than in the movie. Shocking.

  8. Sometimes a break is good. I'm of the opinion that writing too much (at least publishing anyway) sort of tires you out. Well, now that you're rested, here's to an awesome September!.
