Things I have been wanting to share.

  • I started this blog just a week before stepping into law school and that was five long years ago. My college life is over, I'm officially a graduate. I'm officially a lawyer!
  • I'm growing up too fast and I don't like it at all. Adulthood is scary, it is messed up and there is always too much to do. It's been more than a month since I turned 23 and it is as crazy as it was last year or the year before that. Honestly, I think in my head, I stopped growing up after 16.
  • I got a job, like a real job in the real world and I am not yet accustomed to this feeling of having my own visiting cards that say that I'm an Associate. It is a lot to take in and I think I'm going to forget about it for a while.
  • My brother visited us in June and gave my parents an out of this world surprise just by appearing one night. It was such a beautiful moment when I saw my mom scream and burst into tears as bhaiya walked in. Dad was in another city, so he refused to believe till we made a video call. And I.. well I managed the whole surprise by keeping the news with myself for two weeks, which was undoubtedly the toughest task. Somebody appreciate me please.
  • A few days back, I received a mail which said that in some survey, Mirage has been selected among the Top 15 Personal Blogs in India, and that left me thrilled. To read somebody else's thoughts on my blog, on Mirage, it is a beautiful feeling. Of course, those thoughts have to be beautiful to make that feeling beautiful. eeeeep!
  • And and, I'm going to bed now. I wanted to watch Game of Thrones today, but I couldn't because like I said, in grown-ups world, there is always too much to do and it is already midnight. And I have office tomorrow. Uh! Why can't I just refuse to grow up.
  • Anyway, it feels great to share this with you.
  • Thank you for reading.
  • I love you.
  • Here's a goodnight kiss.
  • Go now.
  • Shooo.

  3. Congrats on all of these accomplishments! I know the feeling of being an adult, but not quite knowing how you got there. I've been 23 for about four months now and I'm still not sure how that much life has happened to me yet. But I know that I have so much more coming to me! Congrats on everything again, love!

  8. you know, it is hard to imagine you as a lawyer, Vinati...it is actually hard to picture the Vinati i know from this blog in an office setting with its typical business protocols....you must almost have to become a different person than you have revealed here at Mirage to fit into such a situation...

    likewise, over the past 5 years, you've said little abort your experiences as a student, although i'm sure some of them had to be significant...we've read your poetry and heard stories about your family, but almost nothing about school...that's another Vinati we know nothing about, isn't it?

    so you are certainly a much more complete and accomplished person in the world than you've revealed to your readers here, where you allow your emotional moments to show...the backbone metaphor is apt; your readers here have supported you through the worst you've been through...

    oh, and about that "adult" thing; you have my sympathies....being an adult is a real drag, and i should know....technically, i've been an adult twice as long as you have been here...

    1. Haha..true, I am a little more than what I have portrayed here but I love this exclusive part of me. It is raw, it is pure, it is unadulterated. It is what I dearly miss when I am out there dealing with everyday life and I love it more because I have not tainted it with anything that I don't feel important enough to be remembered. Like my college, sure I've had tons of expeirences there. Some even life changing. But if I start talking about each of them I would be giving importance to those people who deserve none at all.

      So that's that.

      I am really excited to have this new prefix attached to my name. Advocate/Lawyer, it is as amazing as I thought it would be five years ago. eeeep!
