And miles to go before I sleep


"Happy New Year!"- A bit harsh, don't you think?
How can anyone possibly hope/wish that the coming 365 days of anyone's life be "happy". Sure it's going to have the "happy" but also the 'sad' with so much more. Let's just say, "Survive The Year", shall we?

Yes! I seem to be at my cynical best and an absolute joy to be around!
No! The 'slap' hasn't stopped haunting me just yet.
Yes! I have come with ways of getting over it.
No! They don't seem to be making much sense to anyone but me.

I genuinely believe that a haircut will make me happy! I don't understand how no one else gets it!

Coco Chanel once said, "A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life". It's not like the quote is the reason for the decision but it totally goes on to justify it. It's comforting and consoling. More so, when the hand that hit you really hard liked to play with the ends of the hair every now and then. I am getting them really short. If I get up before noon tomorrow, then tomorrow morning.

Next, I am getting a tattoo. Probably next month. Forearm or Ankle?

I have never really been a 'tattoo person', per se, but this is something I need to do. It's disgusting to live with the knowledge that the maximum physical pain I have ever felt is courtesy a non entity. Hence, the tattoo. I am getting high and going for it the next time I have enough cash.
It's going to be a star(or two) and with that, I want inscribed, "miles to go". 
The almost two decades of my existence have seen growing evidence of my fascination with the stars. It may sound really bookish but I want star(s) on my body because it's going to be like my little piece of sky, however small. I love stars. They shine, are far off, move, tell tales, pretty, the works!
The "miles to go" is part of the famous quote "And miles to go before I sleep..". It's an excerpt from "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" by Robert Frost. I remember reading this and "The Road Not Taken" (by the same poet) back in the fifth grade, for the first time. Over the years I have read them over and over and no piece of poetry has garnered as much appreciation, attention and love from me. They make perfect sense. Even with the growing years and changing perspectives, they always make perfect sense.

There was an entire phase with "The Brook" by Alfred Tennyson and what has stayed with me still is the part that goes "for men may come and men may go, but I go on forever". This was a serious consideration with respect to having it on my body. However, couldn't overlook the dripping sexual connotations to it and also what it might look like to anyone who isn't aware of the poem.

So ya. That's that.

New Year's Eve was a hell of a crazy night, like always! Alcohol and high heels do not go! I woke up with the growing knowledge of a lot of body parts to whose existence I was oblivious, until they started hurting like fuck, the next morning. My Internal Exams start from the 4th of this month and I am as prepared to take them as I was the first day of the session. I don't know why I must bother about them, anyway! I see doomsday ahead.

The year gone by had it's share of good and mad.
It's 2011 now;
New Year,
New Beginnings,
Surviving...
Same Old Shit!

I want to mention JAYA in this post 
  • because he is awesome and I love him
  • "I know (s)he's kind of socially retarded and weird, but (s)he's my friend...so, just promise me you wont make fun of him(her)!" - Mean Girls
  • because he think he looks very cool in his newly grown beard.. which he does.. *coughs*
  • because I think he needs to know that I have been trying to paint a kickass t-shirt for him since his birthday and have ruined two perfectly normal plain t-shirts, in the process.
  • because he must take me around in his car more often
  • because I must try and study now
P.S- My profile picture of the blog is a picture clicked by him and I am using it without permission. But I will cook for him and that will make him very very happy, yes? yes.

  1. Coco also said "A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous." Swear by it every single time I blow my months salary buying boots (I'm a lil insane about boots :P) Getting a haircut makes my day, week whatever. It is like therapy for me :D :)

    Though I am just a anonymous comment-er on your post my two bits about the tattoo:
    Dont get anything you arent sure of, you have to live with it for the rest of your life - unless ofc you have loads of cash to get it removed.
    Dont get anything that is just plain stupid - like a skull or something! :P
    Dont get anything negative tattooed on you - I got mine 5 days after I broke up with the guy for good, and I got something that got me THROUGH it rather than something that reminded me of it :) (my tattoo says willpower)
    Dont get chinese / japanese etc because most times you get something like 'strawberry' on you when you actually thought it was something cool like 'life' TRUE STORY :D
    Dont get high and do it, because you will be a pain in the ass for the guy who will be inking you :)

    Forearm wont hurt all that much, ankle will. Idea is anything with bone right beneath the skin will hurt like crazy. Even then, it doesnt hurt as much as its hyped up to be :|

    I am getting my #2 next month. Cant wait! :)

    ....miles to go before I sleep is one of my fav poems :)

  2. I love how all your comments are so detailed :) :) :)

    Forearm it is :D
    I am sure of WHAT I want, yes.
    IF I really want it may be slightly debatable. Got one month to figure out.
