Some things, you need to do with yourself- a small little life update+chit-chat

I was really tired that day Like I am everyday. I was exhausted, after solving math (how typical) and studying for the exams coming up next month. Pressure was building up on me, especially since I performed real bad in the previous exam.

I got so frustrated after a while, I just banged my books. I didn’t understand what was troubling me. My head felt so heavy. That’s when I realized, I was just being too hard on myself. I was overstretched.

There’s very simple things that bring joy to us. For me, things that bring joy are some little things like baking, photography, painting or writing something, or watching a bts video (the crackhead stuff) and listening to a sad taylor swift song but that makes me sad again . At that point of time, my mind feels at peace. I feel so pleasant while cycling during evenings with soft sunlight and gentle wind.

Just when things seem purposeless, or you feel aimless, you need to do a few things by yourself. Spending time with yourself. For me, I know the time for leisure has come when I am sick of everything I do. When my head, body and mind feels heavy.

A new hobby I found was- painting. A budding Pablo Picasso coming straight up. I never thought I was any good at painting, but once I got the hang of it, it felt doable. Painting is kinda abstract so you can have like a predefined picture of what you want but it goes in a COMPLETELY different way.

Then I began writing a story. I don’t know if I can call it a novel yet, but it’s as of now just a plot that is loosely held by some words, lol. It’s a mixture of so many genres and tropes, for now, I’m thinking of calling it “my mess”.

I’ve been deep in my own heap of study these days. My mom says I’m being too much of a nerd. I hate the word nerd. What do you say?

I’ve also been reading this book “One of us is lying” by Karen McManus. It’s interesting till the point I’ve read, thank you so much Book bloggers for that book rec!

Our school began online once again though :( Just when I thought school would be normal, wham! Online school. Truth be spoken, I HATE online school. My eyes hurt, and it’s too boring without any interaction. Like mischief with friends.

But! Since I was part of the Republic day event at school (ahem- I was the emcee-), I did find my cue to go to school. I found such beautiful bougainvillea blossoms, in white! They looked so prettyyyy~

I wonder if I’ll have the chance again to go to school.

There we go with the sadness again.

This post was supposed to be happy.

Anyways, I hope y’all are doing well. Keep being weird, spend some time with yourself, stay hydrated and this is where I end today. Sayonara.

Not-so-daintily loving you,

Divi.

  3. The photos you took are 🤩 amazing. painting is a great hobby, you should def show some of your paintings. Cycling feels so calm and soothing, try cycling with music. Online school gives my migraines all the time. Share your stories in your blog too, would love to read them.

    1. Migraines YES! I hate online classes because it’s more of like a obligatory thing than a voluntary thing. I HAVE to attend it, I don’t WANT to attend it. Times changed:(
      Thank you so much Dhriti for reading!

  4. That bougainvillea photo – so pretty! Reminds me of my school – we also had similar bougainvillea near our entry gate. <3
    I can totally understand how much online must suck! The best part of school was hanging out with friends, sneakily eating food in the middle of classes (:D) and sports period. School without them would have been so boring!

    1. Haha, I’m glad it took you back in time! Sports period omg I miss it so much 😭😭Whenever we had a free period, we used go out and play volleyball or such, now since it’s online, the free class just stays a free class, no games!

    1. Thank you so much Anoushka! Welcome to the blog! I’m so glad you love it~
      I finished the book finally, and I thought it was okay-ish too, but it wasn’t THAT disappointing. My fave is somehow Addy, because I feel she is the one who has a total character transformation from a princess to a badass. My read was enjoyable because of her. What about you?
      Thank you so much Anoushka!
