The Month That Was... July

If June was a dog with it's tail on fire, July was a cat which was yowling its head off.
(Yes, I'm obsessed with animals.)

I learnt to choose between VERY dear things. 
I learnt to choose without knowing which is the right choice and knowing that which ever one I choose, I'll always regret not having chosen the other.
I learnt to deal with the resultant guilt.
Did that make sense? No? Ah well.

I learnt to lose newly-bought precious things and rant about it.
I learnt to deal with wearing glasses to college. I DETEST it. Or rather mostest detestest it.
(I know it's not a word, but I like superlatives with -est).

I learnt (or rather other people are learning) that making me a representative of any kind is dangerous to everybody's health, mental and physical. 
Illustration:  When your truly lost it after getting pissed off with the whole class in general and banged a bit of paper on the desk so hard that half the people jumped out of their skins and my hand smarted for the rest of the day.

In my defense, I have some sort of misplaced sense of perfectionism where I HAVE to get certain things done a certain way, or I lose it. O.k, that's the lamest defense ever *rolls eyes*

I learnt that distance is a beetch when you are in love (copyright: KT)
I learnt that jealousy is the worst thing that can happen to a relationship and that jealousy is highly under-rated; it's much worse when you feel it yourself than they say. Any solutions?

I wrote my first guest post for Red:)

I learnt that Farzana is getting married:'(
But I'm happy for her *sniff, sniff*
Melodrama apart, I wish her all the happiness and love in the world. God bless.

I learnt that survival in the hostel solely depends on how crazy you friends are.
I learnt that when friends come and stay with you, they start becoming like sisters.
I learnt that having 7.5 meals a day happens only in the hostel.
I learnt that all for one and one for all is effective not only against the warden but also in life.
And I learnt that orange lollys and black nail paint will never go out of fashion as long as The Roomies are as retarded as you are.

I learnt that leaving home, how many ever times you have left it before, will never ever be easy. It just breaks your heart clean in two to see Amma waving bye, trying to be strong for you, so you'll be happy.

I leave you with a picture on my angel, my baby.
The best thing that has happened to me since Amma, Nandu and chocolate <3

P.S: The yowling cat? Yes, the month yowled out to me like a cat on a wall that has been deprived of milk/fish for a very a long time. If you still don't get it, never mind, my mind works in VERY strange ways.


  1. Oh I LOVVED this post...you saw me blue in july and make people fall in love too... :D And I loved it all...thanks to you all :D Priyanka! You also gave me such an awesome Tag! I heart you! :D And I wish that this month, that is August is like Fluffy Bunny Rabbit that KICKS the green eyed monster's Arse for you! :D :D

    Blessed Be!

  2. I like this piece. :) Makes you appreciate your joys and learn from your lessons.

    P.s Long distance is a painful, relentless bitch. :)
    P.p.s I have lived away from mommy for a long time, and I know that no one can make a day better like her. :)

  3. I'd say 'cat on a hot tin roof' suits the expression better- but then my mind works in stranger ways, so...

  4. I enjoy your posts on the month end review...very reflective and possibly something we should all do...I am guilty of not reflecting and just getting on day after day and then feeling that the months and weeks and days all blur into one! It's nice to see the things you learnt... :)

  5. that was a good one Priyanka!!
    I totally relate to you when you said that the hostel life totally depends on how crazy your friends are.
    I shud get better ones....the best one always leave coz thr parents come down...grrr
    i really love your mth end posts!

  6. Well great are those people Who learn from mistakes and especially if you can learn from others mistakes ..

    Hostel life is a bliss all my life i have lived in a hostel while studying ...

    Take care and keep smiling ..


  7. This is really nice to pen down about the month that went by! In a way it helps us take a look back and value to good things that happened(and the bad too) and about wearing glasses to college. I hated it too!! And you are lucky to have the crazy set of roomies! :) I had them too!! They made my life so wonderful!! :)

  8. Hey P,

    To a happy and august August,



  9. I can totally relate to the second point... I have made so many such choices last month and am still not sure about them... On good days i think that i've made the right choice and on bad days i feel an irresistible urge to back and change my choice!

    Hmmm... such is life.

  10. @ MSM, I heart you too babe:) awww, fuffy wabbit:))
    Hope you come up with the most awesome stuff in August:)

    @ Srinidhi, it does, introspection:)

    @ Chandana, not being sure is a pain in the wrong place-_- changing our choices would have helped a great GREAT deal. Hmph.

  11. The thing you said about Hostel. So true :(

  12. Interesting. I had a good read. :)
    and even I hate to wear glasses anywhere in the world. Contacts work best for me.
