Digressing Daily! (Using A 4-Year-Old Draft for Life Updates)

Normally, our lives seem normal, dull and mundane. and every day we pray to god to find some spunk. That is our one truth, what’s normal for us is: praying for the extraordinary.

As confusing as that maybe, I was aiming for the not normal blog beginning. And I think I achieved that. “Sitting at the work desk trying to achieve impossibly set goals, the mind wanders.”

Proof
Proof of Laziness 😉

I honestly cannot remember how this post must have started. A small rant for my restless mind maybe, guessing from the first title it had. I tried to work on this draft so many times. Because I usually have so many thoughts stirring up in ye ol’ noggin. (my brain). The fact that I need to explain my words, I believe is an indicator of how out of sync I am. This is the kind of overthinking is what I’m talking about. :p

So here is a life update – I shifted to a new room on the 2nd of September, which is why I haven’t been posting as much as I would have liked to. I cleaned the room, put my things away and even had my housewarming last night! These were the invitations I sent out. Everyone loved them and on my Instastories too.

Between the room, and prepping for the party, I didn’t find much time to write. I cooked food almost all day on video call following my mother’s instructions, who is a great cook. It was nothing fancy but the food was devoured by everybody which is a good sign. Everyone had a great time, and I was glad I had friends in a foreign country to share in my happiness. I truly felt warm last night. Here are some pictures:

I needed to explain my absence before going back to the regularly scheduled programming. I also might have another set of good news, and I will share as soon as I get the green signal from higher forces ;). Not to be too cheesy, but I’ve had a good first week in the new room. I have been happier and more productive and all I can hope for is that it keeps bringing me the good vibes.

This was a mish-mash of all things that have been currently happening in my life and the stuff that I wrote down forever ago (remember the first part of this post? Yeah, me neither. That was Wise-Saloni). But the title is still apt! Which is incredible because I digressed from the main topic so many times. That was the crux of my original post too, and I delivered four years later too. Hope this wasn’t too much of a random post. Hope you guys have a great day. 🙂

Versatile Blogger Award

It’s a good week when you’re nominated for one blogging award. But, when you receive TWO in the same breath, it’s a blockbuster week! Sheryl, from the BIA Atlas blog, nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award on September 22. And David of Occasional Dreams nominated me the very next day. It is a big compliment because Sheryl nominated David too. So, now we’re like a big happy family spreading the award cheer all around 😀

I’m sure my excitement is palpable as I haven’t done an award post in so so long. Needless to say, I have a few (pending) awards to thank people for! Sheryl is an author whose journey began with a sentence – “No Joe, I don’t believe in superheroes.” Thrilled? Continue reading “Versatile Blogger Award”

Blog Birthday Month !

Dear Readers,

July is the birthday month for this blog, Vintage Sapience. And I couldn’t be happier. 😀

When I started a year ago, I had no idea I would find such encouraging community of bloggers, people who are so much more affectionate than anyone you’d meet personally. (I wish I was exaggerating!)

I’ve been candid, and brutally honest in all of my posts, something that doesn’t quite come naturally to me anymore, as a person. I always thought I had scarce material for having a good blog, but somehow it was always brimming with new content. I willed myself to write more, to write better and to go back to what I loved the most – poetry. Through good times and tough ones, I decided to pen down something to keep up the posts. Because it made me happy. Writing down made me feel calm and at peace with this world that’s spinning faster than I could’ve handled. Continue reading “Blog Birthday Month !”
