March 2013

Whattay month it has been!

Finished up my 1st Sem exams in February. Started March with a vacation. Went to Saputara, a hill station near Surat, Gujarat with 17 cousins altogether. Later, got myself busy with the management meet Cynosure 2013 organised by our college. And post that, got busy with organising farewell to our seniors. All in a month’s time.

But, the main highlights of March 2013 would be 2 emails from 2 different authors.
One, from Sangeeta Bhargava from UK, London. The author of “Letters to my Baby” and “The World Beyond” had just published her 3rd novel, After The Storm. And she asked me if I’d be interested in reviewing the novel. Of course, I was and she immediately sent me a copy of her novel. πŸ™‚ Which I received on 31st of March, 2013.
Second email was from Kiran Vijayan whose first novel “Offside” had just released. He too asked me the same thing and I immediately agreed. He sent me the novel and although I received his email later, I received his mail first. Got his mail on 27th March, 2013. That’s why the review of his novel was up before that of ATS.
2 author signed copies in a month! Woohoo! Was and am still on cloud 9! πŸ˜€

And March 2013 had also been a good month for blogging because I managed to write as many as 6 posts in the month!

The first post, on 3rd march, was Break up, another post in the category of relationships and thanks to my friend who asked me a wonderful question that got me thinking. “What would you think of a guy who just had a break up without any fight?” was the question. Also, asked the same question to a couple of my other friends and their views have been incorporated in the post too.

Second post, on march 14th, again was under the category of relationships. I will get over you,Β Β which was more of a continuation or a reply to “I miss you, Hell I still love you…!” It’s not true love if it doesn’t hurt..!

Third post, on March 16th, was the first ever Free GiveawayΒ on my blog. Giveaway of 10 BigFlix movie coupons. I still have a few. If you want, do ping me! The coupons are valid upto 30th April, 2013, so hurry!

Fourth post, on 21st March, was again under the category of relationships. This post was kinda cute in itself. Titled Love at first meetΒ  it was about the conversation between a couple who had been made to meet each other by their families. Yeah, arranged marriage. Turned out pretty well.

Fifth post, on March 26th, was again under the category of relationships. Definitions of love by a besotted lover has so many definitions of love. Totally inspired from one of the conversations that I was having with a friend. She asked me about my opinion on love and what I actually thought about love. That conversation resulted in this post. πŸ™‚

And the final post of the month, not under relationships this time, but a review!
The review of the novel Offside by Kiran Vijayan that was sent by the author himself!

That marks the end of March 2013! πŸ™‚

 

 

2013 so far..

Ah, things have been terribly busy.. 2013 has been a roller coaster ride so far.. Post graduation studies, exams, so much to do and so little time.. Endless movies, hanging out with friends, college life.. It’s all taking a toll.. Am so dead tired by the time I return home that I rarely get the time to write or even read..

which explains the dearth of posts this year.. There haven’t been many..

the very first post this year was on the topic, that my blog actually is made up of, relationshipsΒ – a simple post, a conversation between a guy and a girl, a simple non-personal conversation leading to a tuffle between the two.. and how straight forwardness of the guy ends up hurting the girl..Β side effects of love

Oh, it’s February already!!
Yeah, could manage only one post in january 😦

The second and third posts have been on the subject creativity and these are compiled by one of my lecturers.. Convergent and Divergent thinking and Personal barriers to creativity.

Again, returning to my forte, relationships, the continuation of the most successful series on my blog πŸ˜› The “Love is cute” series.. a cute and romantic post, Love is cute – 4, about a young and mischevious couple and their cute cute antic talks. No love is complete without a little jealousy.

The last post for February, category relationships, Bitter Sweet conversations. Maintaining long distance relationships is no mean task. No, really. Especially with the girls. They make mountains out of moles, you know. Just an instance where it happens. A third person becomes the subject of conversation which leads to a small disheartening of the girl. But then, all’s well that end’s well!

 

So, that’s it for now.. january and February 2013!

Adios Amigos!
