“Show me a person who has never made a mistake and I’ll show you someone who has never achieved much.”
― Joan Collins

I need to explain my absence from WordPress for the last 2 or 3 weeks. I had my exams and was trying to focus on them, albeit I know the extent of my focus 😀 Haha. Anyway, I am hopefully back to regular posting and there would be a bevy of posts on my blog. For a few days after the exams, I was just proacrastinating and it had already been so long since I had posted, I felt weird even saying anything. But I love my blog so much, that I could never think of leaving it forever. More posts on poetry, and travel coming soon. Have a great day everyone!

Update to my About Page!

I started this blog when I was an engineering student, and that is what it says on my About page. It has been a year since I became an engineer, but I never got around to updating that on the blog. After the graduation, it was all so surreal – I didn’t really feel that I had completed four years of my degree. And consequently, days passed, I started my job and the blog suffered a bit.

I had always thought that when I update my About page, it would be with a lot of pomp and fanfare. That it would be a big deal that I’m finally an engineer. But now, I don’t feel so special. It feels normal because the stress of a job, and building a good life are bigger responsibilities that take over your mind.

I’m rambling, and yet I am thankful for the fact that I have a steady job, and that I can still explore my options because I have my whole life ahead of me. I am a different person than I was, two and a half years ago when I started this blog, Vintage Sapience. It has been a beautiful journey so far, and I cannot wait for life to get more exciting, and filled with more milestones so I could update my About page again and again, every time with a happier heart!

Here is a link to my About page. Please leave comments and suggestions, if any. And following is the Update I have published:

Update: I am an engineer now! I successfully passed my exams (not that my family expected any different). I consciously try to be funny now, although I’ve been known to fail miserably at it. But I can laugh at myself which makes that easier 😉 Being an over thinker is never good, especially when that leads to stress-eating. I am in an extended state of losing weight, loving food and living life. I am still figuring out people, and societal norms. Although, I try to pretend that I am normal, my brain has thirteen tabs open. Eleven, on a good day. In a world that trends on thinking out of the box, I will always be a little bit old-fashioned, in a good way. Which is what inspired the blog name. I’m still writing for the soul, and expecting just a little bit of love in this callous world. Constantly trying to keep it short, and concise because exceeding the word limit is my habit!

Interesting Fact: I used the words “about page” 5 times in this post!

The One With 500 Followers!

December has always been a special month for me. With the beautiful winter in full force and the festive atmosphere, I always find it to be the most magical time of the year. A lot of people are excited about the advent of Christmas, as well. I just celebrated my birthday a few days ago and I got an early present in the form of 500 blog followers! We are a big family of 500 F.R.I.E.N.D.S. now and hence, the title reference from a famous sitcom.

I had been looking forward to this milestone since I had about 450 followers. But, I lost count when I recently moved to a new city. Therefore, it came as a pleasant surprise when I looked at the 503 number on December 14th, 2016. It is a big deal for me because I never imagined so many people would be interested in reading my humble blog. But, time and again, the WordPress community has restored my belief in myself. I have been encouraged by your likes, comments, and follows. Continue reading “The One With 500 Followers!”
