After what seems like ages,

Hi!

The One With The Million Husbands is Srishti because and only because she cannot control her hormones going haywire in the presence of a hot male and in record time lays out plans for a future with that stranger. Atleast that’s what I think goes on inside her head.

I am a crazy person to deal with (my parents and friends can vouch for that) but with Srish around I feel a little less crazy only because her idiocity is pathetic and tiring.

But you know what, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I have known this…

Weighed Down Childhood


Srishti:

My new Poem. I hope we can make a change for those who are unable to make a change for themselves :)

Hey Guys!

 

I am back with a new poem. I hope this opens our eyes about poverty and misfortune. I hope that we can do something for the underprivileged of this world.

 
 

Rags, clothes and dirty dishes,
a tiny heart,waiting for just three wishes.
Sand, pebbles and sticks are his best friends,
unaware of the modern world’s trends.

 

His tiny dirty hands
unclaimed by watches and wrist bands
broken toys, headless dolls
drowned in a mother’s unheard calls.

 

Carrying bags of weight around
sweating, playing and sleeping on the same ground.
Bent, malnutrition-ed, burned and lost,
paying his childhood’s cost.

 

Walking barefoot on this heated earth,
food and water, a capital dearth.
Slaves of their own birth,
lost calls and unsaid worth.

 

See you soon

University Hacks!


Hey you guys!

I have been MIA for a few weeks now and I apologize for the same. University has started and any time I get off of ‘uni life’ is spent either eating or sleeping. But don’t worry, I promise to keep you amazing people updated at all times.

So today, I would like to share with some ‘University Hacks’ which I hope will help you stay on top of everything. These are methods that I have devised to not miss classes, and to also be able to take part in every party, meeting or orientation session at university. I have also included lots of University advise for freshers. I hope that these tips help all you incoming freshmen have a fantastic start in your respective universities!

 

  • Pick random roommates. My university did not have the option to pick and chose your own roommates, and believe me random roommates is the best way to go. You get to meet new people and make new friends. Who knows, your roommate may be your future best friend!
  • Invest in a pair of flip flops or slippers. And when you have those flip flops, always wear them while taking a bath. You have no idea who has been there, and believe me, hostel washroom floors are messy.
  • Be early to your classes. Atleast for the first month. It gives a good impression to your professor/instructor.
  • This point resonates with the last point I made, but please don’t skip your classes. Make sure you attend your lectures. College or University gives you a freeway to skip class, but if you want to fulfill the purpose of higher education, everything that you will get in quizzes and exams, will be from those lectures.
  • Make friends. This is quiet self explanatory, but university is a time when you can meet new people and reinvent yourself. It is not like school where everyone has a predefined notion of who you are, this is new, this is different! :)
  • If you do not find roommates that share a common interest with you, don’t change your room within the first month. Stay there, and try to maintain a civil and hostile relationship with your roommate. They may end up being compatible roommates.
  • Carry a daily/weekly and monthly planner. It will help keep all your appointments in schedule and you will be more organized with everything.
  • Always read your time table the night before. My friends missed two of their classes just because they forgot to read the time table correctly. Make sure you go through your time table the night before and early in the morning.
  • This is more towards the hygienic side, but take a bath everyday. Please!
  • You will have the first week of university as fresher’s week. Make the most of it. You will meet new, different people. There will be orientation sessions so you can ask queries during that time period. You will also have DJ nights and parties in your campus (yes, most of these are official), attend them. Attend that dance party even if you can’t dance. But please note, this point is just for the first week of university.
  • Join clubs. If you can’t join lots of clubs, atleast join one club. These college societies are a brilliant way to help you de-stress, meet new people, and share your ideas. Something similar is taking part in open events conducted by the various societies. There are free events for which you can register and have a fun time. You can register for something like that when you know you have a free time slot.
  • The last point, and one of the most important points is to have fun, accomplish what you are there for and keep yourself busy. Have healthy food (because food in University is known for the ‘freshmen15′).

Guys I hope you liked this advice post! If you have any more advise for freshers leave it in the comments down below, and if you are a fresher, let me know if this helped you out! :D

See you next time,

Ron Weasley Inspired


Weasley can save anything,
He never leaves a single ring,
That’s why Gryffindors all sing:
Weasley is our King.

Hey guys!

While surfing the internet for random Harry Potter related articles, I stumbled across a little too many pages where people spoke about how they did not like Ron Weasley. I am a Weasley girl, forever. If I have to ship myself with a Harry Potter character, it will without a doubt be Ron Weasley. I just thought I would take this opportunity to appreciate Ron Weasley, JK Rowling’s perfect creation.

The best thing about Ron is that he is more human than anyone else in the book. He relates to a situation like any other human would (please avoid the fact that he is actually a wizard). If there is a situation that requires you to panic, Ron will panic. I sometimes feel that Harry is the super heroic fictional character that I can never relate to in real life.

Ron is extremely loyal. He will never stop supporting his best friends no matter what. He could easily stay away from the turmoil that Harry and Hermione had to go through, but he supported them. Ron was always there for his friends, his family and even people he didn’t know, like the House Elves! If we need someone to teach us loyalty and friendship, that teacher should be Ron. 

Ronald Weasley is a family person. He lives in a big family and respects everyone in it. This is not really a personality trait, but is definitely something that makes up his personality. In today’s ‘taken for granted’ era, being a family person means a lot!

Have you read or seen ‘Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets’? This shows how he is able to think logically in stressful situations. He is clever and there is no doubt about it. You can actually see his cleverness when you see him play Wizard Chess! It is amazing!

When Ron is excited, you are excited with him. He can make you happy when you aren’t happy. This may sound weird to say about a fictional character, but while reading the novel, there are instances when you find yourself smiling because of a conversation with Ron, or a scene where Ron is super excited.

 

Also, I would like to mention a write-up that I stumbled upon just before I was about to upload this post, and if you are a part of the Ron Weasley fandom, definitely check this out : http://www.hypable.com/2014/02/07/why-we-absolutely-love-ron-weasley/

Quirky Confessions | Srish

L4W is back with a bang! Today, we’re discussion our confessions! Why don’t you check mine out? :D

Well hello there everyone! How have you been? It has been a long time since we have done a post on here, but no worries, we are back! Back with a bang (metaphorically, ofcourse).
This week on L4W is ‘confession week’. I had to think a lot while writing this post because I couldn’t really remember much that I had to confess, but I hope you like it!

In middle school, there was a very cute boy that every other girl would be crushing on. Just for the sake of this post, let’s call him Jack. Jack was in the class right across from mine, and my friend, let us call her Amanda had a huge crush on him. My friend…

My Favourite College/Uni Tips Videos!


Hey guys!

I will be leaving for my University soon, and I have been watching loads of videos that can help me with this awesome experience. I realized that so many of you guys may be going through the same things, so why not share with you some videos that helped me organize my things for college. I will also list down the things I will carry for my university dorm with me in a future post if you like! :)

So here we go! I hope these help you as much as they help me! =)

You will find yourself doing shopping for your university or college dorm. This I find as one of the most time consuming and confusing parts, because you never know whether you are packing too much or too less. One video that helped me out a lot in this dilemma was this one. I also suggest you watch Meghan Rienks’s videos for what to pack for your dorm.

The first thing you will experience as you move in to college is making friends and having roommates. Your orientation will be the best time to know other freshmen. This video is really helpful and has lots of good advice about that!

To have a good college experience, you need to stay in your limits yet have a free mind. The most helpful video is one I found as a random youtube suggestion, but this is definitely worth it.

College is generally a place where students tend to slack off, they do not study much. They end up concentrating more on their social environment and their new found ‘independence’ than their studies. It is essential to fair well in college. There are 2 videos in this list that can help you set your mind to studies, and help you fare well in class.

 

I hope this little playlist helps you out in your college/university experience. If you have any other video suggestions for college that I should consider, do let me know. I’d love to watch them! :D

See you next time!
Srish. Xx

 

P.s: The collaboration blog that I have with my friends called LifeFourWays will in no way stop. In fact, you can see L4W back in action starting this August! We have loads of stuff planned, and we hope you are excited as much as we are!

The Fault In Our Stars : Movie Review

Hey Guys!

I got a beautiful opportunity to watch the movie, ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ today. The movie is based upon the bestselling novel by the same name written by John Green. It was a pleasure watching that movie, and I definitely recommend it to all of you out there.

The story revolves around two characters and their families and their love story – Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters. They are star crossed lovers, but unlike other romance novels, they both suffer from various forms of cancer. It is a sad story, yet a believable one. It is a sad story, yet it is beautiful. It is a heartbreaking love story, yet it is magical.

The movie takes you through a rollercoaster of emotions. A little bit of dry humour also makes the movie very heart warming. If there is one thing I learnt from the movie, it is…
