Notes To Self

I recently read a really great letter written by Tangled Up In Blue to her younger self here. I even commented on it saying, this is probably what I would have written to my younger self too! 

But yesterday evening, as I was cooking in my kitchen (I am really not very good at it, but advantage Annie - I find cooking interesting so I am eager to perfect it!), it was my first proper dinner making and I burnt the bhindi :P and Nutties came in and propped himself next to me, crowding me in our little kitchen. I told him to get out of my kitchen in a very irritated voice and to that.. well lets just say, my bhindi burned even more. :) 

So if I had to write a letter to my younger self I would be -

Dear 15-year old Annie,

I have nothing much to tell you, except that keep doing the things you are doing right now. 

You are going to make a truck load of mistakes and seriously screw up sometimes. But you know what? You are doing it all right. You will manage to land yourself into spectacularly disastrous situations but, please, keep doing that. You have so much to learn, and there is no way in hell you will be as awesome as you are right now if you didn't make all those mistakes. So yes, keep screwing up. :) They are just important lessons. And when you have had all those lessons, you will meet Mr. Right and it will be the best thing that ever happened to you. Things will work out just fine, kid. :)

Oh and a little heads up, for the love of God, learn how to cook! :P

P.S: You already know which of the friends are going to stick it out with you, and you are right. They will share the bed with you and gossip all night long before your wedding day. It will be AWESOME! :)

So, if you had to write a letter to your younger self, what would it say? 

~ Annie.
P.S: My house looks like a hostel right now, living with a guy is annoying sometimes! :/

First Impressions!

Just landed at Cochin, after a grueling, LONG and weirdly jerky flight. Spicejet, you suck.

EVERYONE seems to be wearing the lungi / mundu (whatever it is called)!!!
I think I cant wait to wear the white gold saree tomorrow - it looks so pretty! <3
There is a gajra hanging in every car! :P

And Oh. My. God. That is a LOT of coconut trees! :O :D

- Annie.
P.S: Would love to roam here with my cam, thats for sure! :)

A wedding happens only once, you know.

P.S: Having put up with the suckiest of birthdays and the suckiest of new years and the suckiest of whatever other days, I never imagined that I will have to deal with it again. On my wedding. Thank you all... But really, no girl deserves this however loserly she might be.
