Love Hurts: The Story of a Shoe Bite!

Shoes are bare necessities and that... is a fact of life (ahem).


For any other half-crazed shopaholic young woman out there, it makes perfect sense to buy shoes almost every month and probably splurge a few times in between as well.

Why we love them:

They support you like no other. 

They always let you watch your step.

They never let your feet touch the ground.

How can you not love any object that actually allows you to achieve all these almost impossible tasks?

How they repay us:

Bought a new shoe recently?

Tried it on? Well, good for you. You know the money was well spent. 

But then again... what happens when you forget that the shoe is new even though it's practically your favourite pair now? 

For all the love and care you show to your shoes, it's unfair to not receive such love and affection from them during the first few days of your relationship.



It's gonna hurt and you know it:

Each and every one of my readers out there; you must remember those moments complaining about the nasty shoe bite your new pair of lovers have given you?

It isn't fair. It isn't playing by the rules. And most of all, it isn't exactly what you'd signed up for when you saw that pair of shining, sleek new shoes in the store.

It hurts to be hurt by what you love with such passion. And "precaution is better than cure" becomes the anthem of your life.

That is the reason we always make it a point to carry bandaids around...just in case. (No? Ok maybe just me)


Luckily, it gets better:

Even after all that hurt and dejection, as with every other problematic situation, your shoes do start loving you back at some point.

They fit perfectly already. After the initial few days, you don't even face much problem strutting around in them.


After all, if it weren't for constant, dedicated, unconditional and undying love... where would we be?

6 Confessions of a Coffeeholic

The fresh scent of coffee, wafting in the air as soon as you open the can of beans/powder is one of the great ways to start any day, in my not so humble opinion. It takes time to master the art of coffee making, especially when it comes to that particular flavor, which you prefer and that too early in the morning, every single morning.

My obsession for coffee began while I was studying in the higher grades, trying to keep up during exam times to study late into the night (because that is when we ACTUALLY study, no matter what the experts ask us to do). There are so many different kinds of beans out there, combinations of which can lead to an even interesting and sometimes not so exciting flavors. My point is, you need to try it to know it. 
I am a die hard coffee lover and here are my confessions:
1. One cup a day is never enough:
I'm sure this stands true for every coffee drinker out there. How can simply one cup of that steaming, bubbling, aromatic beverage, ever be enough? One…

How to Groom a Groom Classes (Part1)

Ethics classes at Loreto college, in the third year, are different.

Quite... different...

As a young lady, the extent of your education or skill set should not depend upon how well you can cook "butter chicken" or how nicely you drape your saree.

To be honest, I can't do either very well.

But the bottom line is that I'm willing to learn all of that, for my sake and not for the purpose of bagging the next best groom on an online match-making website.


Gender based qualifications required for marriage: Sister (our principal), started class by reciting a few posts put up on a certain match making website.

Interestingly...the guy's resume would go something like this...."Tall banker/engineer/doctor/etc. earning --- of 40 years, coming from well educated Brahmin/Kshatriya family. Looking for fair complexioned, 5'4" or taller girl between ages 20-30, coming from good Brahmin family."



And vice versa for the prospective bride's ad.

Flipping Off Your "Humanity Switch"

You may have come across people in daily life who have the ability to completely turn off their emotions for a while.

People belonging to the "Vampire Diaries" fandom, know exactly what I'm talking about.

What is this "Humanity Switch"? Basically, according to Damon, you can flip your humanity on and off as and when you wish to. 
Switching it off lets a vampire detach his/her actions from any emotional judgment or guilt. This is the excuse these creatures have for killing ruthlessly and actually consuming a nutritious diet of blood, blood and just blood.
Can we do it? Depends...
Upon whether you really want to, whether you have the will to flip it off or whether the situation demands such a thing of you.
You may have seen... Some people are able to keep a check on their emotions for a certain time and then simply break down once they are ready to. 
Of course, this isn't a healthy way of dealing with problems...but then, what is?
Flipping off emotions, even…
