The holidays have been eating my brain cells away, I can’t get over how yet again I am having to work on Thanksgiving. I’ve made this statement before, but the day they plan to open stores on Christmas (my ALL time favorite holiday of the year) I am quitting retail for-sure.
I think because of this, I have been in a ‘pissy’ mood which led to me waking up Sunday morning to a nail in my cars front left tire which led to it being flat. And I just knew it was just going to go downhill from here.
I live in a ‘city’ where calling ubers and taxi drivers are very rare, and forget any other source of transportation. And I kept contemplating on utilizing this service, but I thought nah someone should be able to give me a ride… right?! Sunday’s are typically my study days and because I have an exam on Tuesday, I decided to start studying early and make my way to Barnes and Nobles with a good cupa tea. Later in the day I had plans to meet with a classmate to study for the exam too. Literally the most simple plans I’d ever made for a day and that to all for school…
I called many people and either no one picked up, or they were already obligated to other things which was totally understandable. I decided to just wait till I had to meet my classmate and help my mom out with an event she was prepping for in the evening. It was okay, I guess the thought of not being able to drive my car was really making me mad. Eventually I made it to B&N at around 3pm and began studying with my classmate. Of course it was packed because everyone is trying to get their hot red cup at hand and we just needed an empty table and good WiFi… but the internet sucked and I thought I should ease my mind with a cup of coffee instead of tea. I reached inside my purse and my wallet was gone, in fact I kept thinking I lost my debit card too.
I wanted to get up and scream. Instead, I just sat there and stared at the study guide which I felt clueless about and pretended like I was okay. But I wasn’t.
We attempted to study for a few hours only to realize my bad mood was reflecting on my performance of studying and it just wasn’t working out really. My classmate was nice enough to drop me off at home and I got home and took a shower to ease my mind and listened to the soundtrack of Tamasha which was very helpful. I decided to throw some rollers in my hair so I’d look fab the next day, and began my homework. It was a bit successful I guess.
I decided to just take it easy the rest of the night. I popped my rollers out, blow dried my hair and popped some homemade popcorn (which was 90% burnt) and made a big cup of hot chocolate (which was TOO chocolaty) and watched the Indian version of Big Brother aka Bigg Boss. After Big Boss I watched an Indian comedy show, Comedy Nights with Kapil which featured Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali as they promoted their film Tamasha. Boy did this make my evening!! I was laughing harder than I needed to and was just cheesing hard seeing Ranbir!
Basically the sum of this little rant-story of mine is, there was no need for me to be so mad because of my flat tire. I personally have been in far more worse situations and fretting over a flat tire was the last thing I needed to be worried about. All the events that occurred after finding out about my tire was just me simply attracting lot’s of negative energy. I reflected about all this today and thought how much I wasted a day that could have been spent well studying and just enjoying another day of life. I also thought about how my emotions really played with me yesterday and thought about the film Inside Out. All my emotions were probably just going through a roller coaster…
Funny thing is, this morning when I woke up, like always I pulled out my phone and sat in bed for a bit. I hopped onto Pinterest and this is the firs thing I saw…
So while the universe gave me a huge sign this morning, I hopped out of bed and put on some good clothes and got that dang ‘ole tire fixed and got loads of things done today and even managed to fit in a good hour long nap! On that note, you can probably tell what to get out of this post. For now keep reading, keep watching and see you at the movies! This week Tamasha releases early in the US on Wednesday November 25, stay tuned for the film review coming soon!
Happy Holidays & Happy Thanksgiving!
