University Life| #1 Deciding On A Roommate


Hey Guys!

When you enter the University, it is a completely new environment. This creates challenges for those individuals who are introverted or find it difficult to adjust easily in unknown environment. Most students set foot out of the house for the first time when they start University.

If you know some of your friends from school or your locality, or any of your acquaintances who are joining the same University as you; make sure that you don’t end up sharing a room with them. It is known that hen two best friends are together, they can talk to one another for as long as possible without the need of anyone else. So, old friends as roommates makes it difficult to make new friends. It is normal to feel comfortable with people you know, however, this is when you have to get out of your comfort zone and go for a random roommate.

 You and your roomie gotta turn this into home =)

I was lucky in this and my University had a random roommate policy for freshmen. This made me find three of my best buddies. It also made me understand with whom am I compatible. I could sketch out the basic needs I had as a roommate, which was very helpful for choosing a roommate for the second year.

A random roommate also helps you make new friends, try and test various friend circles and introduce you to free and different  social lives. And ofcourse, later, you can choose your pick!

I hope this helps those who are filling out forms for University this year. Have the best time possible, this is the time you will grow older, mature and let go of the school stereotypes. Have fun at Uni!

Cheers

Stay tuned with the series. Next up, I talk about what to carry for classes!

University Life Series!


Hey guys!

Many of you are preparing for University this season and the excitement is not lost on me. Having experienced a few semesters in a University, I believe I can share some of my experiences and give you guys some advice on how to handle the new environment in
the best way possible.

I’ll start with the basics and go on ahead sequentially with the University Life Series.

I really hope that you guys like it. I remember when I was starting Uni, I saw as many videos as I could about everything that I could think about. I garnered as much information possible from peoples’ experiences, their university stories and their blogs. I’ll share with you some of the videos that inspired me to have a great university experience as well in this series.

So stay tuned for further posts in this series. As soon as
they are released, you will be able to search them on this blog under the upcoming ‘University Life’ section of my blog.

Cheers

Aladdin | Movie Review


Srishti:

Here’s a new post! I review Aladdin the movie, and share with you the lessons I learnt :)

Be a prince, princess, king, queen, but most importantly Be You.

Hey everyone! I will be reviewing one of the most beautiful movies ever made, Aladdin. Disney has been great in sharing with us folk tales and stories from centuries past, and all of them have a special message to convey.

Aladdin

Aladdin is a story about a young boy, a ‘street rat’ who survives on petty thievery to fill his stomach. He along with his friend Abu, live like nomads, always on the move. But his nature is beautiful. He is caring, loving, charming and his looks are to die for! Then there is princess Jasmine, beautiful, sweet and a strong minded woman. Her father, the Sultan wants to marry her off but according to the scriptures, she needs to be married to a prince.

A parallel story is of Jafar, the advisor to the palace. He is crude and…

How do you know? | Poem

My new poem! Hope you like it :)

How do you know
what you’re feeling is right?

Do you think it through
what you feel inside,
when our hands touch
and electricity shines the light.

Do you sometimes wonder,
how the time stands still
when our eyes lock
in the silent night.

University: Time Management


Hi there!

I’m sorry for being out for so long. Today, what I’d like to share with you is an accidental experiment that worked out beautifully for me.
So, to crack it down, for all you university students, who are struggling to keep your sleep, study and social cycle in balance, I may have found a key. But wait,it is not as simple. You have to work a bit as well.
Here’s a step by step guide! =)

  1. Check whether you are a morning person or a night person.
  2. Out of your chosen subjects, rank them in order of difficulty/credits.
  3. In your time-table make sure you add 2 hours of flexible time.
  4. Make sure you don’t skip your meals.
  5. If you have a social event one day, make sure that you get enough sleep after that and you can scoop up time the next day for studies.
  6. Smile-fake it till you make it.

I hope this helps you out. If you’d like to know more, or if you have any personal questions about sorting out the time table, you can feel free to write to me! :)

But before I leave……..ANNOUNCEMENT!

Welcome 2015!


Hey Guys!!!

I hope you have been good. I wish all you guys a very Happy New Year and hope that the new year is filled with lots of joy and happiness for you and your families! :)

I have had a very beautiful year, 2014. I have stumbled, but I have learnt to get up. There have been ups and downs in my life, I am sure that every individual has them, but what is great is that despite those, I have learnt how to maintain a stability in my world. As per the blogging sphere, I have experimented with my style of writing a lot.
I made a collaboration blog with my three best friends, and we rocked it. We have lacked on posts over there, and each one of us has been very busy with starting out a new phase of our lives. But we promise, to get back on it :)

This year, I made new friends, I learnt many life lessons and I am very grateful for those. But most of all, I am grateful to all of you. You guys, my lovely readers have supported my writings for such a long time, and I thank you for being a part of this blogging family.

Here is to spending the New Year 2015 with happiness, love and positivity!!

See you soon

Beside You

Hope you enjoy. xx

Hey guys!

I have been obsessed with 5 Seconds of Summer, or more commonly known as 5SOS lately. I have fallen in love with their song ‘Beside You’. It is lyrically one of the most beautiful songs, it is emotional, inspiring and romantic. It has also inspired me to write a poem. I hope you like the poem :)

You got a ticket to a whole new world,
spread your wings like a free bird
and my heart says to you,
I know you miss me too.

Maybe what you say is true
sleepless nights, old and blue
that empty pillow next to mine
I miss your smile, your charming sign.

We see the same Sun, stars and moon,
my heart knows we’ll meet soon
when your clothes still fall to the floor
it makes me miss you more

You promised that you’ll come home soon
tell me you’ll bring…
