There were four goals in May that I completed but did not yet blog about. One of them I will not reveal just yet. There is a corresponding secret goal attached to it for the month of June. And I will reveal the big secret once I have no need for superstitious secrecy. The other goal… Continue reading Step by Step
Goal No. 3 for 3rd May: Go a day without playing any cellphone game I am addicted to games, have been since I was very young. Board games, Puzzles, Computer games, you name it! Back in the 90’s, two of my first games were hand-held nintendo games of the Game & Watch series called Snoopy Tennis… Continue reading Game Addiction Anonymous
Ever since I can remember, I have felt the need for something that pushes my boundaries. Especially after abandoning my 101 goals in 1001 days, I have been lazy, listless, and under-productive. Beginning of this year, in January, a group of macrame artists on Facebook hosted a 30 day challenge. I happened to join the… Continue reading 30 Day Challenge
The sound of the ocean. Sea Shells. Sea Spray. Soft, sandy beaches. The smell of wet earth. Ice Creams galore. The Smell of Spring. Flower blossoms. Butterflies. Crunching crispy fallen leaves. Floating on Water. Karaoke. Books, Books, Books. Receiving snail mail. Watermelons Honeydew Melons Musk Melons Sunshine. Moonlight. Stars. Onsens Jacuzzis and Bubble Baths. Colourful… Continue reading 101 things that make me happy:
(up up and away!) (I believe I can fly!) (all the crude flying cliches cannot prevent this one from being one of the most glorious things I have done in my life) While in Switzerland, I wanted to try something adventurous. I was oscillating between skydiving or paragliding. Interlaken is one of the best places to… Continue reading 46. Paraglide!
I went Jodhpur and Jaisalmer in Rajasthan with my sister, a cousin and an aunt in December of last year and I managed to procrastinate writing a post on this goal! So, as I realised I have now walked on mountain snow also, I should probably blog about these together!
OK! I cheated with this one. I know I can’t possibly climb Mt. Fuji this time, since August is when one can do so and I will be working in August (hopefully!), I added the “/a mountain” and I consider it done, twice over. I climbed up to see Mt Titlis and Mt Jungfrau (not… Continue reading 50. Climb Mt. Fuji/a mountain.
Considering how Barcelona is on the eastern coast, I thought it would be a good place to catch the sunrise from and fulfill this goal. So, on my last day there (ie, 13th June 2013, Thursday), having donned my swimming suit, and armed with my camera, I set out from the hostel between 5:15 to… Continue reading 57. Watch a sunrise.
Not really “just for fun” but got soaked nonetheless, after coming out from Hallenstadion after the KISS concert. Didn’t know it would start raining, and the tram was going to make me late for the last train! So, I made a run for it in the rain to the Oerlikon Station, and got soaked, not… Continue reading 43. Get soaked in the rain.
If I were a month, I’d be April (“April is the cruellest month,/ breeding Lilacs out of the land…”) If I were a day of the week, I’d be Friday (TGIF, baby!!). If I were a time of day, I’d be dusk (“When the silence beckons, and the day draws to a close…”). If I… Continue reading If I were…
