Summer Colds Really Suck

As the title of this VERY, very, very bitter post suggest, I'm down with  a summer cold. And it sucks. Big time. I happen to be this really spoilt kid (not proud or anything) and today my parents aren't home. So here I am, in oversized IT t-shirts and a really, really, really dirty hanky trying desparately to pass the day. Tomorrow, at school, I'm going to sneeze like a 1947 rifle and be the subject of the whole school's favourite staring contest. Not to mention the continuous "BLESS YOU!!" 's. Like seriously, it's not like your blessings will drive away my cold will it?

Yours,
Zoe Summers.

Worst Rickshaw Ride Ever

So, today after my class got dismissed for the day I had to cross the bridge connecting Nerul West to Nerul East and then take a rickshaw for the rest of the journey. For those of you, who don't know what a rickshaw is; it's a mode of public transport, that looks kinda like this:



So, while I was crossing the bridge my Charles and Keith slip ons broke(both of them, not just one shoe) and I had to limp all the way across the bridge. Then, when I FINALLY caught a rickshaw, the shoes completely broke into two and one pair fell into a massive pile of leaves. After wading through the pile and trying to make it stay on my feet, I had to convince the rickshaw wallah to not add an extra 20 bucks to my fare.

What's an extra 20 bucks you ask me, well there is the teensy tiny detail that I was stranded with only 53 Rupees in my wallet. // The plight of a school going kid who wastes all her money on Pepsi and gum. // After grumbling a lot, he dropped me off OUTSIDE my community. Like, my shoes were broken and the roads are not the smoothest roads in the world; not to mention the over speeding motorcycle owners and reckless car driving.
So, I had to hobble all the way to the elevator and then when I reached my apartment and rang the door; my mother dearest opened it with the sweetest scowl she could manage.And after that she preceded to nag me on the subject of "How I Never Study Properly", like I hadn't just come back from spamming my brains with all sorts of knowledge. Judgemental women. I guess Karma really IS a bitch, I shouldn't have hogged the bathroom in my sister's shower designated hour. :(

Daffy Duck, Happy 78th!



Today, one of the greatest animated creations in the history of animation turns 78 years old. You are perfect and truly a gift to humanity. Thank you for teaching me that it's okay to be absolutely and completely in love with yourself. You taught me that there is NOBODY as perfect as I am. That the world will keep judging you and you shouldn't give zero fucks about it.  Thank you for teaching me how to live my life the way I am. I know you are the most imperfect person around, somehow that makes you even more perfect. Thank you for making my childhood so beautifully amazing. Thank you for making me laugh every time I was in the worst of the deepest, dirtiest dumps. Thank you, for being you Armando 'Daffy' Sheldon Dumas. I love you and will continue loving you, forever and always. Happy Birthday and keep being awesome.

Your,
Zoe Summers

#GoneGirlThursday

These are some of my favourite quotes form Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Who knows, it might convince you to read the book.
 It's a very difficult era in which to be a person, just a real, actual person, instead of a collection of personality traits selected from an endless Automat of characters. 
And if all of us are play-acting, there can be no such thing as a soul mate, because we don't have genuine souls.
 “Tampon commercial, detergent commercial, maxi pad commercial, windex commercial - you'd think all women do is clean and bleed.” 
 “My mother had always told her kids: if you're about to do something, and you want to know if it's a bad idea, imagine seeing it printed in the paper for all the world to see.” 
 “Friends see most of each other’s flaws. Spouses see every awful last bit.” 
 “It’s humbling, to become the very thing you once mocked.” 
 “I was told love should be unconditional. That's the rule, everyone says so. But if love has no boundaries, no limits, no conditions, why should anyone try to do the right thing ever? If I know I am loved no matter what, where is the challenge? I am supposed to love Nick despite all his shortcomings. And Nick is supposed to love me despite my quirks. But clearly, neither of us does. It makes me think that everyone is very wrong, that love should have many conditions. Love should require both partners to be their very best at all times.” 
“We weren’t ourselves when we fell in love, and when we became ourselves – surprise! – we were poison. We complete each other in the nastiest, ugliest possible way.” 
“I waited patiently - years - for the pendulum to swing the other way, for men to start reading Jane Austen, learn how to knit, pretend to love cosmos, organize scrapbook parties, and make out with each other while we leer. And then we'd say, Yeah, he's a Cool Guy.” 
“People say children from broken homes have it hard, but the children of charmed marriages have their own particular challenges.”  
 “The worst feeling: when you just have to wait and prepare yourself for the lie.” 
So.........was it convincing enough? Lol, of course it was!

Black Jalebis and why you need to try it ASAP.

All the chocolate addicts around the world would know what it feels like to bite into a chocolate cake. You lose yourself and the moans escaping your mouth is a testament to how good it is. No matter how shitty your day was, the cake melts you and you forget about everything.

Black Jalebis are the Indian version of the chocolate cake.It is soaked in sugar and still tastes like ambrosia. It's crunchy but does not contain any nuts. And if it doesn't make you feel like writing poetry about it, then there is something wrong with you. So if there's an Indian sweet shop near you, or if you ever find yourself in India, you NEED to try it out.

It is my opinion that black jalebis are better than orange ones. But I do know people who prefer the orange one to the black ones. And to end this pointless article which makes no sense, I wish all my Bengali friends a happy Pohela Boishakh. All my Keralite friends a happy Vishu. All my Punjabi friends, a very a very happy Vaisakhi.

It Finally Rained

All the people who live in the township of Nerul, in the city of Navi Mumbai were greeted by something very unexpected: rain.

Now, those of you who are Indian, or have ever visited India; know that the rains only come at a particular time of the year. Yeah, I know, global warming. but, nevertheless, it was a pleasant surprise. The rain in India, is something of a beautiful miracle. When it hit's you in the face, you want it to keep hitting you. Everything becomes brighter, the leaves become darker and the sound of the rain is like an orchestra; it all has it's own beat.

Everyone loves the rain, some people call it gloomy and annoying; but everyone secretly loves it. The sight is so beautiful, you want to write poetry about it. Or it gives you an excuse to drink hot chocolate when you should stick to your diet. Or read a book when you should be doing Maths. Or comfying up and watching a movie when you should be working. You get the point. So basically when the rain's come, everyone's like; "Fuck the world, it's raining and I have an excuse to be lazy."

So can we please be a little more grateful for rain?
"Es lebe der rain"

The 1:15 a.m. movie



Last night was crazy. We won the match (Real Madrid). And after that I tried reading a Toni Morrison book; but this was just one of those days when my mind stubbornly refuses to concentrate. So I decided to go to bed and after two hours, I came to the conclusion that My mind was incapable of sleep that night.

Now, I belong to an Indian family. Sure, we're up with the modern times and my folks can be really cool at times; but at the end of the day, there is a commandment of rules everyone has to follow. One of them is, you can't watch television after 10:00 p.m.

So, I sneak out of bed, stealthier than Robin Hood, and made my way to the living room. After surfing through mind numbing channels filled with Indian marketing (which, in my opinion is bullcrap); I came upon Romedy Now. And the 1:15 a.m. movie was.....*drum roll please*................The Object of My Affection

So most of you probably haven't seen this. To be frank, I hadn't heard of this movie before either. Anyways, back to my point, the info. option told me that the movie is about a young pregnant women preferring to raise her unborn child with her gay best friend, instead of her over controlling boyfriend, who also happens to be the father of the child.

Complicated? But admit it, you're curious now. So, I settled myself with a good bar of chocolate (I don't like popcorn) and a nest of cushions and the movie started. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Jennifer Aniston played the lead; and she was fantastic!

Anyways, I won't go into the details but GO SEE THE MOVIE NOW!!! Did I mention that the movie has Jennifer Aniston and a really hot guy? Go watch it!

I'm at The Arctic! Well my name is....


Almost a year ago, I signed a petition protesting against Shell drilling for oil in the Arctic region. For those of you who don't know, drilling for oil in the Arctic is VERY bad news for the Earth. Not only, does it cause pollution and increases global warming, it will also melt a significant chunk of the ice cap. Not to mention, the tons of marine wildlife that will be destroyed due to the activity.

So around last year or so, Greenpeace started a petition to put an end to this. I, along with millions of other people signed this petition to save the Arctic. This delayed things for a while. Then Shell, resumed it's plans for the Arctic oil rig.

On top of that, President Obama has signed the lease giving Shell the right to extract oil from the Arctic. In a recent study, on a random day, THIS year, the temperature in NYC was 7 'C and the temperature in the Arctic was 17 'C. Don't you see how bad the situation is?

A ship containing a brave crew of Greenpeace activists set out to protest against the Shell oil rig. They have braved bad weather, terrible waters and scaled the oil rig, to hang the banner you see in the above picture. The banner contains the names of the people who signed the petition against the oil rig.

Shell, however still resumes it's activities. I know that the average person cannot leave their lives and protest; but it would be nice, if you support us through small gestures that will help us win this battle.

I request all of you to not boycott Shell and all of it's products. Do spread the word about this and ask your friends and family to do the same.

Further, go like Greenpeace on Facebook and spread the word. Remember, we cannot eat oil and money, so it should be our utmost importance to protect our Utopia.

Yours,
Zoe Summers

See you all Tomorrow

I think that's all I'll be posting today. As Ernie Harwell once said ( don't worry, I don't know him either):
It's time to say goodbye, but I think goodbyes are sad and I'd much rather say hello. Hello to a new adventure.
Thank you for bearing with me today. I'll see you all tomorrow.

No. 3 on the BPL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Angel Di Maria of Manchester United turns away from Willian of Chelsea.
So, lately I've been in an ignorant state. Not much football, read very few books and basically been in a state of ignorance. Right now, I just found out that Manchester United is no. 3 on Premier League table and I'm ecstatic! In fact I can hardly believe it. Just you wait Chelsea, we are coming for you.

Ronaldo's 300




The man above, is my favourite footballer alive. For the ignorant, his name is Cristiano Ronaldo Dos Santos Aveiro. He plays for Real Madrid F.C. and he's damn good. I suppose this post is late, but this man recently scored his 300th goal for the Spanish club. In a recent match, he scored 5 goals for his side's 9-1  victory. In other words, he's 'deus benedictus' awesome.

See You Again - Wiz Khalifa ft. Charlie Puth.

So, I belong to the minority of people who HASN'T seen Fast and Furious 7. My parents tried dragging me to the theater to see it twice, but I point blank refused. I just can't make myself see that movie, knowing that Paul Walker is dead. I know, stupid dogma. Maybe one day, I'll be able to see it. So anyways, the main soundtrack is a song by Wiz Khalifa featuring Charlie Pluth, See you Again. And it's beautiful. You have to see the official video, just listening to the song won't cut it. The video showcases Paul Walker from the beginning of the series up until the sixth movie. The video is so touching, it will have any Fast & Furious fan in tears in no time. The lyrics, were so beautiful and Charlie's voice to the piano music is mesmerizing. And as always Wiz Khalifa killed it with his rapping. The ending is breath taking, the whole gang driving into the sunset. I couldn't see a fitter way to pay tribute to Paul Walker.

List #1: Stupid myths about women we have to deal with everyday.

So, I go to a co-ed high school. And if you're a women or a girl who's in college or high school or working. We face these problems every SINGLE day. And this is actually very annoying. So here we go:

#1: Myth:- We don't swear.
      Truth:- What the actual fuck?

#2: Myth:- We like it when boys open doors for us.
      Truth:- No I don't, I'm perfectly capable of opening a door, it would be nice if you help me when I actually need it, though.

#3: Myth:- We're on our periods every time we're upset or make a valid point.
      Truth:- If you paid attention in Biology class, you'd know that our menstrual period comes only ONCE in a month; not every time we tell you to stop with the bullshit.

#4: Myth:- We would die for chocolate.
      Truth:- Yes, we would.

So basically, those are the four main problems I have with men. Now I know, all members of the male species are not like this, but I'm talking in a general manner.This is my first post, so excuse me for the horrible-ness of the post.

Yours,
Zoe
