To the 14 year old me

Dear 14 year old self,

  1. Do not try to escape the awkward teenage phase i.e. no makeup, no hair straighter, no curler. Stay ugly. Be humble.
  2. Having a hobby is way more important than looking pretty.
  3. It is okay to not have mongolian features.
  4. You are already very good in public speaking. Speak up when given a chance. If you have a mic in your hand and people in front of you “Speak” but please don’t begin with quotes. Like ew no quotes please!
  5. If you have cellulite, you should run, squat or play a sport; do not “not eat”.
  6. If you don’t like someone, have the balls to not like them. You don’t have to post a picture calling people your friend, sister, godmother or whatever!
  7. Do not listen to your teachers when they say “you need to improve your studies and behavior”. You are a very sincere straight A student.  के भन्न खोज्नु भएको सर?
  8. Always remember, if people call you “pretty” when they meet you they are saying it because you have a shitty personality.
  9. Boys will not like you. Deal with it.
  10. Use sunscreen.
  11. Stay home with your grandparents on February 9, 2012.
  12. Watch beauty pageants. You will win the national pageant in 2015.

Yours,

22 year old self.

 

 

 

 

Hope

I went upstairs and looked at the moon,
wondering if you are looking at it too,
I asked old moon to deliver a message,
that I live each day waiting for you,

Right things comes at the right time,
the moon is patient and so am I,
and when the stars finally align,
I know we will meet eye to eye,

Make love to me with a touch of grace,
hold me tight and caress my face,
but until that day we are together,
I ask the moon to keep you safe.

I aspire to be happy

I had a friend who when entered the room made all of us smile. She was the definition of happy.
In a world full of pseudo sophistication, it was incredibly fresh to see someone so happy and candid.
She was contagious. She didn’t have the perfect set of teeth. Yet, she was so serene, that all of my problems faded when I looked at her.
From that day onwards my aim in life has become to be incredibly happy, like her.
