Better late than never


We’re already one month down in 2019. And I may be late to wish you but nevertheless, Happy New Year!

The past year was tough. It becomes easy for a lot of people to judge your situation on the basis of your social media image. But, in the background, we’re all living a life that’s throwing us challenges at every step. The real quest lies in taking these challenges head to head and trying hard enough to win them over.

I firmly believe a new year kicks in a lot of new movements.

A lot many things happened in 2018 and to sum it up, the following were kind of more than key:

  • the big life uprooting from Seattle to Dublin. Yes, from one country to another to one more in less than 2 years. (Mumbai to Seattle in 2017 and Seattle to Dublin in 2018)
  • figuring out the new place, the near future and set some personal goals
  • trying to produce more content on a personal best basis
  • finally learned how to ride a bicycle.

Let us talk about the bicycle part, shall we? I am 28 years old and did not know how to ride a bicycle and I guess I always assumed the fun aspect of riding. I wanted to experience the absolute fun of riding a bicycle and I finally did it. It may not seem a great deal for many of you reading this, but it means a lot to me. I finally ticked it off the list before it meant never.

I finally decided that writing makes me happy. And, maybe reading this might make you happy. So, I am going to try to keep up with the pace of life and still manage to keep posting as frequently as possible.

I brought in the new year by not staying up till 12 am. I slept at 10.30 p.m. Boring much? Maybe, I am too old for this nonsense or maybe I believe waking up at 6.00 a.m to experience the first light of 2019 was more important. I had a quaint dinner and some amazing Prosecco at home. The first day of the new year was spent waking up early to a beautiful morning. I made a heartful brunch with mimosas and spent the day just amongst my favorite person and my furbaby. There could not have been a more comforting start to the new year.


My personal resolution for 2019, is to give my thoughts a medium of exposure. I am going to try and push my thoughts out on the blog as much as possible.

And as I sense the new decade of my life on the brink, I am losing my sh*t.


I cannot fathom the age I am supposed to write down on forms and I cannot understand why it’s such a big deal but maybe the nerves will calm down soon. I still have more than a year before the big three-O hits!

    It’s always nice to read your articles Apoorva, probably because they have a personal touch and seem so original. Waiting for a lot more blogs in 2019. Keep up the good work!
