I have again started feeling the need for a blog. So here I am. Back!
I took a break for Mellifluous Misery without any prior notice. Bad attitude, I know. And I am not going to try to explain the circumstances leading to my early vacation from this baby blog who was just born. I realize no matter how legitimate they are, or they seem to me, but they are ultimately all excuses. And, I am lazy.
What have I been up to these past one and a half months?
Well, I was busy with college for one thing. Yes I moved out. It’s not a dream college and not very far away from home, but for the first time in my life I am on my own and I kind of like it. College isn’t anything special and neither is the hostel I am living in, and I do not plan to blog details about my day-to-day college/hostel life here. This blog is more about various stories from different aspects of my life and the experiences I drew from them; things I got to learn (or I refused to learn) and the way I got influenced by various people and places and incidents.
Although in 12 days I am going to take my first test this semester, still I’ll try to give Mellifluous Misery all the love it deserves. Fingers crossed!

Of late a growing concern over my melancholic, lonely and soul shattering past has put me under a thought process. Is this what I truly deserve? Am I going to cry over the spilled milk for the rest of my life? And most importantly, am I utterly, purely and perfectly useless? I haven’t got the answers yet. So, for the moment I am a bit confused.
Besides the added confusion, I am a pretty lively person. Young, optimistic, funny and an avid reader… this is me! I have just started my undergraduate college, English major! Languages and literature are my life and soul. As Harper Lee has said and I quote , “Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.”. I have recently started learning Spanish. It’s a distant dream but we should never lose hope, right? And with these rays of hope and faith, let the journey begin!
