Mornings that I wake up early and get work done before 9:00 AM
Nothing happens as planned in class because we are arguing over god knows what
The smell of mud, paint, dust from old books, libraries. Yes, I have Pica.
Also the smell of my department, coffee, sea, seafood, cold mornings, sandalwood, elaichi chai, fresh bread, coconut fish curry and crab
Snuggling under a warm rug on cold nights and colder mornings.
A day well spent at work.
Salary credited message.
Spending money on books, booze and food.
Unexpected holidays on days that I have 4 classes
Watching movies about women and writing.
Watching Rom coms.
The idea of living alone.
Watching the rain and not getting wet in it.
Going to Stationery shops and buying stuff in bulk.
Writing my name on new books.
Sleeping after brunch.
The feeling I get when I am about to get addicted to something, like a TV show or a story.
Letting go after struggling a lot
Water bottles full to the brim
Staring into the washing machine and watching dirt being squeezed out of clothes
The smell of Lizol fresh – Pine flavour
That moment when everybody leaves the department and I am alone
Mixed fried rice at K
Ceramic Tea Mugs
Mushrooms – sauteed, anything.
Watching cat videos
