Five things for today

1) On the train platform, this morning. a lady stood right next to me. She stood really close… really close. And suddenly, for seemingly no reason at all, she just started laughing. This continued as we boarded the train, where she sat a few rows behind me, and through four stops. Every now and then […]

People pushing and shoving to board trains and rush to the open seats. Getting poked by umbrellas because people aren’t paying attention, mostly because they’re staring at their phone screens while trying to walk to their destinations.

Five things for today: I hate writing on a deadline, or assigned writing. I think that’s why I don’t like my current course. I love writing as long as I have complete say over what and when to write. It’s Christine’s birthday, today. I wish I was close enough to take her out to dinner […]
