Cheers to the Quarter

Yes, Cheers to the Quarter of my life. When I was 10, thought being 15 was the new cool, and when I was 18, thought being 25 was the new cool, and now, yeah, right, being 30….nah! I don’t feel the same anymore!! 🙂 😀 😛 Now I feel, everything from the past seems to be pretty good than the present. That’s how we probably screw the present and relish the past.

Woah, and I could figure it at the age of 25, great gyaan in the young age!! 🙂

I pretty much planned way ahead on how to enjoy that day, because I am that one girl who enjoys the birthdays!!!!! Like, hell yeah, IT IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!

I was with a group of people I love…I missed my parents and sister though. My parents planned to send me bunch of flowers and chocolates I love from India and got a nice dress from my sister. I happily got dressed, roamed all over, got some nice pictures to enjoy the quarter of my life for the next half century! (If I could hit so!)

So, yeah! I am 25 year old and finding my way in the world. All these years, I fought with people around me, and most importantly, with myself to emerge out as a person like I am. I am sorry if it doesn’t make sense, but yeah, it is not so easy to be you. It is hard to make good memories always (have a bunch of bad ones in place), to find new measures of independence (hell with the constraints), sense of self, read lot more books. Altogether, I evolved as a good person, if not to all, at least to myself.

I developed a great hope and I cling to it to accomplish my goals, and work to reach them. If not soon, someday I will, but it is not hard-to-reach. I can see a foggy image 😀 😀

I end up saying…..No matter how old you are, just enjoy that year, it obviously won’t come back.

Yep!!! That day!!!

I read a lot about the Happy Roses/Teddies/Chocolates/Diamonds day in the articles (In short, Valentine’s day). 😀

I was thinking to write something on this to make my blog look cool. It’s part of the oh-so-trendy thing to write anything that happens all around the globe.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY everyone who has boyfriend/girlfriend. And singles, HAPPY TIME TO YOU because this is the best period ever to give all the time for yourself.

We celebrate Valentine’s day; we celebrate love. Some celebrate on this day and some celebrate everyday.

You see different kind of people :

  1. People who say, “Yeah! I need to get a gift and impress my girlfriend, and can have a night stand for sure”.
  2. People who say, “I love you, I love you, *smooch smooch* ” all over. 🙂
  3. People who try to fix their relationship problem and give their love another chance.
  4. People who try to ignore the whole V-day thing and post the statuses or tweets like, “I am single, I hate Valentine’s day, It is like any other day or I-have-a-problem-with-everything- kind of statements.
  5. People who hope to celebrate at least next year with their loved ones.

Bottom line: Do not complain!!! Spread love and people who don’t like celebrations, spend it like any other day.

I would love to celebrate the love spread by introducing you to HUMANS OF NEW YORK (HONY) page. People who already knew it, just enjoy it and people who don’t know it just follow it. It is amazing and Brandon (the man behind HONY) is spreading love. It is a good art with good characters, characters with flaws, flawless characters, etc., but relating it with love, hope, and positiveness. It is a great platform to feel and for who love to feel and for who feel the love. It is all about humanity, philanthropy and all kinds of human reflections.

Happy Valentine’s day All!! Keep loving and spread the love!! 🙂

Some bits and pieces of love from HONY :

hony-4 hony-6 hony-8 hony-10 hony-12 hony-19

Everything about being humane, to love and being loved.

Peace guys!! 🙂

P.S: Please check out HONY!! xoxoxoxo

First Press~~

I started a blog after an epiphany that I need to write something and make it public. Okay wait, I don’t know if I’ll make this public yet. :D. For now, I liked writing it for myself and just typing. Well, being nerdy at times feels different and nice. nerdy-smiley

I have had this idea of blogging since four-five years, but lacked a positive drive. With time, I understood that I need not wait for some external positive drive, but just have to dust the lethargy off me. Yes, I succeeded when I knew I would be more frightened by not using whatever abilities I’d been given. (Ahem, I think so 😛 ). I don’t think I can really make the blog name come true, but I thrive to do so. Yes, I might speak about anything I like, anything which makes me feel light after writing, and you as well after reading. Like until, you feel this way…  or this way…smiley 2 Come on, I won’t take away your birthday now…!! 😀

I always wanted to name it as CasablancaStories I love Casablanca, both-the movie and a poem. After watching the movie, I so wanted to start a blog and of course, I did not. 😛 . I sat and thought if I could name it like I wanted, then I realized I might not make another masterpiece like either the movie or the poem. I also thought the writings might not be as romantic as the movie. 😛 LOL!! ‘*smiles*’

My name is HimaTeja, not j pronounced as y like in Spanish, because I am not Spanish. I am from India, living in USA. I am used to hearing my name pronounced as HimaTehaa though. To avoid the confusion, I am Hima in short. I did my Masters in Pharmacy, currently working in a pharmaceutical firm. I am not really busy and trying to stay busy is the motto for now and forever. Idleness kills me. I read books, not really voracious, but when time permits me and viceversa 😀 . Oh yeah, I also try to be creative in fostering the connection between the body and spirit. Hahaha, that’s way too bad an explanation. In short, I dance. 😀 :P. Yeah, I dance to be high and also dance when high. 😛 :D. I watch a lot of movies~~Indian language ones and English too. I love classics and Animated movies.

IMG_2921  Yeah, that’s me and my favourite ‘pull a face’ expression…. 😀

I have mood swings at times, like everyone does. *Just thinking, what would happen to the readers if I start to write when I feel low*. Hell, no way! I don’t take that risk. I might pen something like a homeless drug addict. Okay wait, all this will only happen if I make this post public and if I have any readers, LOL! 😛 :D.

I love chocolates, ice-creams and guys. Yes, that says I am a girl. LOL   laughing hard smiley

I came to USA in January, 2013. I was sad (Homesick, homesick). I have awesome friends, more like sisters in Philadelphia ( Where I went to Temple School). Had so much fun that it felt like home away from home. Later that year in July, I moved to NewYork. And life was so bad, man. I was not ridiculously poor then, but tried to scrape everything together from the little earnings at my part-time job. Fortunately, that was my last stay in NYC infestations. *touchwood*. Yes, I said infestation, my apartment was full of roaches, rats, insects, bugs, etc. It irked me a lot. Oh and am so particular about the bathrooms. That bathroom was so disgusting. I always wanted to make a note saying:

funny bathroom note keep flushing                    funny bathroom note orbit the sun      Kind of these. Ughhhh, I was going crazy over this, cried many nights, yes almost all the nights, and then went back to Philadelphia. Yes, it’s my home and I love it. Then, after a few visits to Texas ( with my little sister) and reached Kansas city for my future endeavours. I am fine and going to rock my life, okay wait, let me rephrase it, I am going to make my life suck less…! 😛

Now, I feel this is too much for a first press…so I will sign off for now. 😀

See you soon.

Ta-daan.  bye-minionHow did I forget this? I louuuuuwe Minions. :*
