Living in the West I have begun to resonate strongly with Fall. It was an unnamed season before but now a prominent season and mood in my life. Despite the beautiful shades of green, yellow and rust outdoors, happiness of the new academic year starting begins to fade away around October.

Old stone structures, French street names, and lots and lots of authentic poutine - this is what I had been primed about Montreal so far in Canada.

I had planned to read mainly but recently picked up a big knitting project (more on that soon!) and have started catching up a lot… Continue reading Winter break reading list
I have a not-so-great morning routine. I wake up stumbling out of my bed and have just enough time to get dressed, grab my stuff and a quick breakfast (that will be eaten in the office). This kind of rushed morning takes a toll on small things we must do that matter. Inspiration and processOne… Continue reading Morning water therapy
The month of October is invariably when I burn out. Over the last few years, this month has become emotionally, mentally and physically taxing due to a number of reasons. As school and university got busy, I basically took up a lot to do in summers: high school programs, part time jobs, summer classes and… Continue reading How to beat the fall blues
I started blogging when I was roughly 15 years old. Over the years, reading blogs have been a regular part of my life - with expected ups and downs of course.
