Where have I been? // Musings


I’ve been MIA since so long. It’s not like I’ve forgotten about my blog. In fact, I often think about posting something but I can’t bring myself to write about anything interesting. Actually, scratch that. There are tons of things I’d like to write about, just that I don’t feel they would be interesting to other people. I’ve finally given up now, and so this post is going to be very self-centered. But then aren’t all blogs centered around the writer, to some extent?

The salesgirl would’ve laughed at me under ordinary circumstances but I was suited up (on a Sunday) thanks to my interview, so she was pretty nice to me, haha! Anyway, I decided to stick with a cute Soap ‘n Glory product (The Righteous Butter), since I’m an absolute sucker for things that smell nice, and made my way to the cash counter. By the way, even the aisle of doom at Sephora has stuff in the range of 600-700 INR, unless you want to pick up 30 cotton pads for 300 bucks. WHAT. Continue reading “Where have I been? // Musings”
