Everybody's jumping around, excited. Spring is here. But not us, the people in Assam. We're all just standing in a row, offering our prayers to Surya, the Sun God, so that he'd be merciful to us this year. If there was a God of humidity, I'm sure we'd offer more prayers to him. Sure, I like the insane April thunder-showers and the power cuts, but what I do not like is the humidity. Sure, I like the gorgeous green baby leaves and the spring flowers, but I do not like the humidity. I just don't like the humidity. Alright, time to stop whining.

Holy Grail is a thing which is eagerly pursued or sought after. I have often heard YouTube beauty gurus use this term, usually to describe a face product or some other necessity. Some have holy grail foundations, others have holy grail bronzers and what not. I always thought I'd never find my holy grail face product since my skin is extremely sensitive and would turn into mush the moment I put any sort of face product onto it. Boy, was I wrong.

So, the CBSE is a complete flop. Since my AISSCE's will span for over two months (I'm not even kidding), I thought I might as well get into blogging spontaneously again rather than scheduling pre-written posts. These days, I'm stuck at home; unable to go anywhere, unable to buy anything, unable to do anything other than occupy my mind with some future blog projects and a rare read-through of my class XII curriculum. Sure, I understand I need to study and focus on my future and everything, but get this - when you combine an extensive exam schedule and a student with the attention span of a fly, it's nowhere near being a good idea. So, I might as well sit back and dye my hair green (for real) while I'm at it. So, in conclusion - screw you, CBSE.

Happy International Women's Day. I'm kind of taking advantage of this day to thank the beautiful women in my life. My aunts, my sisters, my nieces, my friends, my girlfriend and of course, my mother. Women are such beautiful creatures. Every curve, every hair and every inch is a result of love from the Almighty. I know, sometimes, with what's going on in this extremely, extremely stupid (couldn't find a better word but it fits) country, we, as women, feel disheartened. But it's not the end of the world. We just need to be brave and work towards making this world a better place. I feel blessed that I was born in the North-Eastern part of India, where women are respected so much. I just wish it was the same for the rest of the country and the rest of the world. So, what do you do when you're feeling down? You don't cower and hide, you wear a strong smokey eye and bold lip and go show them who created them. That's it. Here's to a world full of strong, beautiful, nurturing women who know their importance! Cheers! *drinks some Tang*
