Happy Birthday to myself! and to you too..if your birthday is on the14th of November.😃
Well, just thought of sharing what I did on my birthday…which, as you will see is as boring as my usual life. (expected)
I just cut a birthday cake 🥮….yep! that’s it! And I spend the rest of the day with a really close friend of mine. We cuddled dogs 🐶(to be specific – a siberian husky…and the other one, I don’t remember the breed, but his name was Ginger), and we gossiped the whole day…about people (admit it…you do that with your bestie too…) and about The Dark Artifices, Jace and Clary, and Julian and Emma and ..it goes on. (yep! Books 📚 had to be there).
But weirdly, I didn’t feel like it was my birthday and here’s why. In my country (India), fourteen November is celebrated as Children’s Day, in honor of Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, who adored children. Also, this day, coincidentally, was also Diwali. Happy Diwali Guys! 🥳 Hope you had a great time despite Corona breathing down your neck.😷
So…um…now that I am seventeen, you will be pleased or maybe not pleased to know that I have lived seventeen years of my life..without doing anything special or extraordinary at all. I didn’t discover any new element, or find the cure to cancer or even watch the avengers movie (kidding! I have watched it).
I don’t even have any plans for the future. And I know how pathetic I sound right now. 😣
I am in high school…and I want to get through it right now. I am currently studying bio-science, but I have no wish to become a doctor or an engineer for that matter. I took science because of parental pressure. You know how it is…if you are a good student, get good grades..then science is what you are good for or you are nothing at all.
Messed up? Don’t worry, I know.😒
I want to study English Lit though.🤓 I know most people would say…terrible choice. Your life is doomed. Every single person I haved talked to….seems to think this, but science just doesn’t vibe with me. And I don’t want to spend the rest of my life being tested on something I don’t like. That sounds like a tragic story…like more tragic than Shakespeare. 😖😩
I do realize that a sudden “Birthday Girl” post has transformed into something consisting my ramblings about life and hence shedding light on my inability to make decisions. 😅Yeah, pathetic doesn’t even cover it. But sometimes – what better way to get it out then post it on the internet, where a few strangers will read or won’t read.
My question to you guys is:
If you are a student, what are you currently studying? What do you hope to do? And if you are not a student, then, what are you currently doing? Have you always wished to work where you are currently working?
UNTIL NEXT TIME!
Happy Diwali! Happy Children’s Day!
