(Or, why Jai Vyas Writes lefts, but he’s here now so yay for that) Realisations come slow. Acceptance comes with struggle. Especially when its about myself. Its funny how some moments are so poetic. Its hilariously poignant, outrageously humbling. Whoever it is up there, writing this script is the best writer ever. So, context. This […]
Close your eyes. Take a deep breath. Relax. Focus. Teachers and invigilators tend to say things like these before an exam begins, in an effort to give us a pep talk to instantly calm our frantic nerves, all those neurons revising last minute details. They try to motivate us to write down every single answer […]
Ah, it’s been a long time since I’ve been here! Yes, I know I’ve been gone a long time, but welcome back to another Coffee Update; allow me to catch you up on all that’s been going on in my life. So, pick from our assorted collection of coffees and teas, and sit back into […]
