The first and the last time I drowned my sorrows was for your sins!
How we choose to drown our sorrows, or celebrate our happy moments is our own choice. Sometimes alcohol helps. To each his own! I’ve believed in that for years now and always will. This post is again a different one for me. Seemed appropriate though. Art by @effenemea have a great day everyone. Thank you for reading. Stay safe and stay home. -Saloni .
Do you know someone? do you Really? When you stop to think about it, in this fast-paced world, of technology, we are all online. we’re here. we are connected. but can you possibly say that you know someone for who they really are?
Now that I see my stats for January, they’re better than in December! I guess distance truly makes the blog-heart grow fonder too.
It has been almost two months since I posted something on the blog. These breaks have been more frequent and sporadic in the last few months. If I promise myself that I will post something big and fancy on the blog, I end up missing my deadlines and skip the normal light posts too. For some reason, time and life have been incredible in the last few days and that did not leave me much time to just sit down and write.
It is not like I don’t have time, I while it away! Haha. It really is not funny but it has been happening. For every two productive hours I have, I end up wasting the rest of that day. Youtube, people, and life’s chores are the culprits. I cannot skip the daily chores while living alone which means that I wasted my time on the phone scrolling aimlessly. Or by chatting and talking to an obscene number of people.
Something changed at the end of November, which altered my mood and general outlook towards a lot of things in life and I attribute it to my long time friend P. If it manifests into good things, I will give her all the due credit. But for now, it made me very happy and incredibly bubbly for all the days that I’ve lived since then. You could say that I started experiencing a lot, living a lot, and letting go of a lot. I opened myself up to new, exciting experiences which were a scary but fun rollercoaster. I cannot really share what she told me, or what was the direct consequence of it, but I lived a life that didn’t feel like mine for almost a month! And then I slowly got to normal.
I am not even myself anymore! I am a little bit changed after experiences and feelings, because those were ones that could alter your personality. Don’t get me wrong, I was on adrenaline and life-high! But it was new to me. We went travelling to Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava in December and I will be posting the pictures and blog for that soon. There was also a trip to Harz mountains in Germany that will be a well sought-for post, especially for my friends. I am not the trekking kind of girl, but I went there! It was one of the most transformative trips of my life, along with the other one in December. A shell was cracked, some stuff spilt out, some changed and the highest impact was on the mood and the general vibe of my personality.
Long story short, I will be back to posting, regularly I can hope. And since February is exam month, I will definitely be posting regularly 😀 I am hoping that it will keep on the groove for the next few months while I’m pumped and feeling creative.
So thanks for reading my rant and very vague life update. I don’t share much anyway, and this is a lot considering my habits. But then again, I went through a mini transformation. Nothing is off-limits anymore.
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 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.
Housewarming Party Invitations
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. 🙂
Talk to me and I will not let your words drown in silence!
Do you have someone you talk to? Someone who will listen carefully, and then give their advice. Help you through difficult or tough situations? In this post, I’m proposing that I would listen if you talk to me. I will not be silent if you share your deepest desires, secrets or regrets either. Share. Have a great day. 😄
Share this with a person who is your rock. Or that person who you would love to listen to. Leave your thoughts below.
This I posted a few days ago on my Instagram account. You can follow along for more impromptu posts and Instastories about the food that I cook/eat, about the places I visit and more from my daily life.
This one comes from personal experience. Simple as it is, it shows a certain vulnerability when you are dependent on someone. It could be friendshio, relationship, food partners, etc. So cherishing each bond with all your heart becomes verybimportant.
This also completes the sunset series. Don’t forget to check out the feed on all its glory!

I have not done one of these in such a long time! It seems unreal, and I feel just as giddy posting my old work out in the world. Well, they say face your fears. So here we are, with this article from 2009. It was for an English class assignment. All I remember is that we were probably asked to choose our own topic. Obviously, I chose something really wise and grown up. The article reads beautifully if I do say so myself. It is called “Simply Read Not, Take Up”. Like I said, quite a grown-up piece.
I had a lot of fun reading it yesterday when I found some of my old papers. The article is redundant at places and there are some corrections that I may have made sometime after actually writing it. It is about peace, and you can see it was written by a fourteen-year-old. And I would have exceeded the word limit. Fun fact: Word limits existed only for me and two other girls in my junior high class! However, with all my Throwback Thursdays on Vintage Sapience I can say just one thing – I am glad I got better with time. At least that is what I tell myself!
Is there something you did in the past that is a funny anecdote? I would love to know. Thanks for reading.
