Dubai Desert Safari | Dubai Travelogue


Srishti

Hey guys!

I visited Dubai in October 2014 and have finally sat down to go through the huge lot of video footage, photographs and written content that I had saved with me for over 6 months! I will be posting a travelogue and bits and pieces from this trip every once in a while on here!

On the first day, I visited the Meena Bazaar in Dubai (didn’t really shop there) and the Dubai Museum. Come evening, my parents and I went on a Desert Safari! Here’s a short video I compiled of the fun things from the Desert Safari (I’m practically a YouTuber now) !

Cheers

LIEBSTER AWARD (again?!?!)


Srishti

Hey guys!

When I heard my phone ding with a new notification I never expected it to be a nomination for the Liebster Award! It is given by one blogger to the other blogger on the internet, in a way to appreciate new talent and to sensitize other bloggers about new bloggers.

Maybe Someday | Book Review


Maybe Someday, Book Review! Hope you like it 😀

“Sometimes in life, we need a few bad days in order to keep the good ones in perspective.”

Hey Guys!

I spent the majority of my yesterday, engrossed in a novel called ‘Maybe Someday’. It is a novel written by one of my recent favourite authors, Colleen Hoover.

Novel : Maybe Someday

Author : Colleen Hoover

Genre : Romance/Contemporary Romance

My Star Rating : Star Rating (4/5)

Here is a link for Goodreads, that gives a better synopsis than I ever could (considering the fact that I may just reveal all the interesting details, if given the opportunity).

Personally, after reading Slammed and Point of Retreat I became a fan of Colleen Hoover’s writing. Her writing style is easy, cheerful, it is usually in alternating perspectives but uses first person speech, and she uses her gift of poetry really well.

You go through the emotions that characters are going through. You…

UNIVERSITY LIFE| #2.1 What To Carry? Day University


Hey Guys! At times it is confusing to know how much and what all you should carry when you just start the University. It is difficult also because, unlike school, nothing is given to you as written instructions. So if you go to a Day University or College, here is a list of essentials!

  • A backpack – Who said school bags are just for school?!

  • Subject Notebooks –  The type and number of notebooks is a personal choice. I like to carry a single 7 subject notebook for my 6 classes and I keep the seventh section for rough work or conferences that I attend. Some friends of mine, however, carry separate notebooks for every subject.

  • Your College ID – Make sure that you have your college ID with you at all times.

  • A watch – Always arrive to your classes in time, and if possible, at-least 3-5 minutes early. It not only helps create a good impression but also gives you enough time to settle down.

  • Camera (Phone’s camera)  – The journey that you take on in a university can only be experienced once in a lifetime and these pictures and videos will always be there with you to cherish these memories.

  • Water Bottle – You need to stay hydrated to retain energy.

  • Food/Snacks – The lucrative canteens and the delicious fast food joints usually become the abode for college students. However, it is essential to maintain a proper diet. So, you should try and carry something with you.

  • Umbrella – It allows flexibility to go from one place to other in changing weather conditions.

Hope this helped you out! All the luck for college! See you next time Srish. xx

Permanent Vacation


Hey Guys!

I hope you have been good. My end-terms have ended, and my University vacations start soon. I haven’t been so excited for a break in  a long time. Since, I do not have much to study, I have been hooked on youtube videos for the past two days.

5SOS sung their new song ‘Permanent Vacation’ for the first time in Lisbon on 4th May. If you like upbeat pop rock music, you will love it! Here is a link to the video (I found it on youtube):

Their stage presence is amazing! There is so much to learn from the way they manage a crowd! 🙂

Also, while listening to this, I found a video by Tobias Ward covering this song. This guy is truly amazing! You should check out his cover as well. Here’s a link :

After listening to his cover, I think I watched all his previous covers as well! He has a really beautiful voice and his guitar skills are on point!
If you see this Tobias, keep doing what you’re doing and all the best! 😀

See you guys soon
(New University Life series post coming soon)

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
Srish. xx
