Throwback Thursday

In true ‘vintage’ style ( a humble nod to the blog name 😉 ), I began doing posts showcasing my oldest, weirdest poems and articles. I thought they would be funny and heartwarming. Quite honestly, though, they are somewhat embarrassing! But that’s what makes #TBT a fun experience.

This one is titled “When We Learn To Live” and was written way back on 14th August 2009! I had the good sense of dating my work, as childish as it may be. I have also been fortunate enough to have my mom keep a track of my million diaries and pages on which I used to scribble. I realize that my poetry was all with a strict rhyme scheme and perfect situations. This one has a really promising beginning but is like a life lesson in a sing-song manner. I am still very proud of the fact that I could write at least this much.

I do hope you guys enjoyed one of my ancient poems. Here is one of my posts from December 2015.

Three Day Quote Challenge: Diary Special!

Once upon a time, Chape Personal Trainer, nominated me for a Three Day Quote Challenge. I was very happy to have been challenged to do something I already loved so much! In my post, I admitted that I loved quotes so much that I have a diary for them. David then requested me to share that diary here on the blog.

David has been so wonderful and helpful that I don’t feel shy about sharing my diary. So, today, I will show that diary here!

It was something I started out with at least 10 years ago, and I have been writing in it ever since. It has definitely seen better days and good handwriting. In fact, I can honestly track the changes in my handwriting through it!

The quotes were general in the beginning and as my interest developed, I started focussing on certain themes- life, nature, Buddha, sacrifice, education and more. Then I even noted down important sayings, metaphors and proverbs. I also scribbled some smart-ass T-shirt quotes which made me laugh on days when I felt low. I have also found some cult phrases in my diary which were big at that time!
