“Captions and Clickbaits”

Greetings to all the beautiful souls.

I hope you all are doing perfectly fine – mentally and physically.

So, here is a confession in case no one has noticed yet (because obviously no one ever notices ANYTHING IN THIS BLOG!) *calms down* that I suck at giving titles to posts or if you guys haven’t checked out my Instagram then let me tell you, I suck at giving captions to my pictures. If you don’t want to go and see then take me up on my word. I hardly give any captions to my posts, the reason being, my mind goes blank whenever I try to type something as a caption. I feel like the world’s most awkward person, sitting there, looking at nothingness of my mobile screen but sometimes I do try to give captions but then I end up deleting it all and post my pictures with a heart or two (what else would I do, right?)

And then I go on Youtube and come across all these promising titles, offering us so much but giving us nothing in their videos (No, I’m not going to roast anyone). But here I am, giving the most boring titles to my blog posts and nearly no captions to my Instagram pictures. If only there were a college from where you could major in clickbaits and captions, trust me I would fail in those classes as well but hey at least I would learn at least something out of them, right????

So tell me how do you come up with your titles or captions? Do you feel like sometimes it is difficult to think of captions or titles?

Sincerely,

A Wanderer’s Soul. ❤

“A Break…”

Greetings 🙂

I recently started this series of posts where I would rant about the things I hate in YA or books in general and I actually have a list of 10-15 things that I really hate and I was not planning on taking a break from posting those ‘complaining series’ because I didn’t want to be inconsistent with the flow of my blog posts. BUT it doesn’t matter if I take a break or not because literally no one reads my posts LIKE LITERALLY NO ONE! So I can post whatever I want whenever I want because I don’t have any audience (I can’t decide if I should cry over this thing or laugh at my own stupidity)

So I guess I won’t stop writing because why should I? 😛 But I will post whenever I want without being consistent in whatever I want to write (Perks of not being famous :D)

I actually contemplated writing about some philosophical ideas but then I thought I already have to go to university every day and study those things every single hour, why should I make my self suffer through those ‘academic’ things at home also? It doesn’t mean I won’t write about those things but I won’t write about those things as much as I initially decided. I actually don’t know why I’m writing this post or what I’m going to write after this post (SHOCKER, RIGHT!) but I know one thing that I will write something!

His-oh-his-everything

FYI, I always knew I had some elements of Andy Dawyer in me but this is a whole new level.

So this is it. I don’t have anything else to say write now but I guess I will post about something sooner or later.

Until the next time (whenever it is going to be)

Sincerely,

I want to write ‘Someone Clueless’ but I don’t want to embarrass myself any more than what I have just done in this post. So…

“The Love Triangle….”

Greetings to all… 🙂

tumblr_mz3vm0Z2ti1r35lizo1_500

This is a second post in my “Complaining Series” and as the title already tells it is about the love triangles in books. Let me start by saying I love reading YA, NA et cetera but whenever I’m going to add a book in my tbr the first thing I do is check its ‘shelves’ on Goodreads and if it has a love triangle category in it, that’s my cue on closing that tab. Trust me no matter how much I love a book by its blurb I cannot force myself to read it. And I have read my fair share of love triangles (sometimes they are love square, octagon or whatever)

It mostly happens in series and our protagonist keeps on running  into someone new “who brings out something unknown or hidden out of them” I mean COME ON! normal people don’t meet new people every other day and develop new feelings towards them every other day. And the most amusing thing is they don’t believe in telling their significant others that ‘hey, you know what? I just met a new person who I think is better than you and I’m going to stick with them for a while’. What percent of decency would you need to say things like that and when things start to go south or get messed up they will blame it on situations and timings (SERIOUSLY?!) All I want to say to these characters is, “Make up your mind already!” ( I just realized that I get so aggressive while writing these posts 😀 )

The thing is we all love to root for certain teams. We love shipping our protagonist with our favorite love interest but everything in between, the cheating, the dumb decisions, the cringy moments are what make these books frustrating and drive me crazy.

This was one of the reason why I find some books so annoying even if I want to read them and love them, but sometimes I fail in relating to these characters and liking some books.

Comment below of what do you think about love triangles in books/ tv shows/ movies.

Until next time.

“A Series That Is So Bad That It Becomes Entertaining”

Greetings to all. 

So, before starting this blog post I really want to say that this post or all the coming posts are not meant to hurt any writer or to throw shades on any one but rather it is just a mean of expressing my own opinion about certain books or parts of general books. Now, without further due, let’s get started.

There are quite some books that are so good and hyped but somehow they become awful along the way. And amongst this realm of books we have this particular series that is so bad yet so interesting at the same time. Let me give you a hint: it is YA dystopian which is quite popular (and includes lots of beautiful dresses).

The Famous or rather Infamous ” The Selection Series” ❤

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t read the books yet then read them first and then read this post.

1

Okay, when talking about The Selection Series the first character that comes in our minds is, America Singer. I have literally never come across any character which is as annoying as she is (Maxon boy, I do believe you are cute but I don’t respect your life choices and don’t even get me started on Aspen!). First of all the love triangle! I hate love triangles in general but if you want me to murder those characters throw some America Singer in it and Voila! you have the element of ruining every good story.

I actually loved reading this series. I read the first three books in two days straight. This series is something you cannot simply put down and sometimes you have this strong urge to throw it across the room.

When I finished the first three books I was like, “Okay, so finally I got the answers and now I won’t have to read about this clueless or rather dumbest character” but guess what? The daughter came in the picture. You know that phrase? Like mother like daughter. Well, in this case the daughter was 10 times more of what her mother was;  “The most Powerful” Princess Eadlyn. (YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!)

kill-me

I have one question. Why these men in this series need to reevaluate their life choices so much? I mean, I get it love is blind but love isn’t dumb enough to not recognize the annoyance of another person. I have so many conflicting feelings towards these books. In one way, these books are my guilty pleasure. I might re-read them in future (like again and again) but I have such strong feelings towards these characters that I will keep on despising them. But still I cannot deny that this series is so entertaining that I couldn’t put down the first three books. I actually kind of DNFed The Crown when I was halfway through the book. I couldn’t take any longer of Eadlyn Schreave and had to just read the ending but I totally recommend the first three books in this series.

So there you go, The Selection Series is awfully good (Only oxymoron can define this series). The covers are so pretty, the dresses are amazing, the writing is also really good but one has to be tolerant enough to read this series.

Hope I didn’t offend anyone. This is only what I felt about this series. I never said these books shouldn’t exist because writing these kinds of books is a real talent and no one should discourage anyone as Truman Capote said, “You can’t blame the writer for what the characters say.” I do believe Kiera Cass is an amazing writer and she should write more amazing books in future.

“What has been going on…”

Greetings to all the beautiful souls. ❤

Hope you all are doing fine.

I don’t like to talk about my life on my blog but I guess I’m not a good person to give advice to my own self. 😀

tumblr_inline_mvven1z1lF1rg0g8s

Here it goes. I’m a student in my 2nd semester of sophomore year in university. I spend majority of my time of week in university because the timings of my classes are pretty hectic. It gets quite stressful sometimes and just recently it got so exhausting that I actually considered giving up and leaving university, although I get good grades and everything but the fact is everything comes with a price. When you are straight A’s student you are under this huge pressure all the time that you have to keep those scores like that and sometimes the pressure is not from the external forces but rather it is your own mind and heart that keep on telling you that you have to try more and more and more until there comes a point where you start to lose it. It seems like a concrete container where someone keeps throwing buckets of water with so much pressure that then a time comes when cracks start to appear on the walls of container.

I haven’t been able to post that much in maybe two weeks and I believed that it was because I had nothing to post, no idea or topic to be discussed. But now that I’m thinking of it the problem wasn’t the lack of ideas but rather the urge of staying away from every breathing soul. I’m an introvert to the extend where I actually spent two straight months of vacations in my room and not even bothered to get out to get sun light. I would rather have my head stuck in pages of books than to say ‘hello’ to another human being. Okay, now I don’t even know what I was going to say initially but I guess the point of me wallowing this much was to tell you all that we don’t know what anyone is going through in their life and we should be considerate to other people. I’m apparently a person who try to stay as cheerful as I can get in front of others but that does not mean that I don’t have things going on in my mind and sometimes the worst part of it is you don’t even know what is going on your mind but there’s something that is bugging you continuously.

Okay, now this blog post is not making any sense. So before I say anything else which is going to be completely senseless, let’s stop this writing here. I know almost everyone is going through somethings in their life but let me tell you, you are not alone. We are all in this together. ❤

Until next time.

Sincerely,

One of the Blessed Ones. ❤

 

 

“The Presumed Definition of Beauty”

Hey beautiful soul. 🙂 

 I had no plan on writing this post but I always think about this ‘Idea’ of beauty that we humans have. I mean, it is the most complicated things, well not only this but every concept that is associated to humans is complicated, I believe. The definition of beauty is quite vague if we think about it. There’s not definite meaning of what really beauty is. Is it abstract? or is it physical? Does it really exist? or is there no existence of it whatsoever..?

We all hold some kind of definition regarding this term – beauty. For some it could be fair skin, almond eyes, long blonde hair, fuller lips and for some it could be light toned skin, big eyes, small lips, pixie haircut and for some it could be brilliant mind, a sense of humour, loyalty etcetera. The point is, every person in this world has their own concept, imagination, visual of what beauty is and in what beauty lies.

I’m going to be honest, before writing this blog I actually went on Google and searched for the definition of beauty. According to Merriam Webster the definition of beauty is “the quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit”

Basically it is something that is aesthetic to human mind so when we think about it, beauty doesn’t really have shapes or forms, it doesn’t lie in a person or thing, it doesn’t show a quality or physical trait. All it says is beauty is pleasing to human’s mind or soul. So then why is it that we look for beauty in person’s physical state and try to measure it on some scale provided by media or given by society. When beauty really has different definitions or more specifically no certain definition then on what basis we claim that we don’t find that person beautiful?

My point is, beauty is something that relates to aesthetic and any thing can be pleasurable and happiness to human’s mind. It is not limited to gender, age, race or any physical state. So, we should rather find pleasure in souls rather in shapes.

Hope I didn’t offend anyone. Please share your views, what do you think beauty is?

Sincerely,

One of the Blessed Ones. ❤

“Made You Up”

“Wondering upon what to paint

With the canvas in my hands

I thought and thought of different ways

To show the love I’ve always had

I thought of shadows, I thought of light

I thought of colourful rainbows in the sky

Bringing the brush to the sheet

I held it for all I knew and let it paint

After some moments I recognized

All I could see was a silhouette of some kind

Maybe this was the moment for me to realize

You were nothing but the figment of my mind.”

P.S I know it was a lousy attempt at writing a poem but I really wanted to share it with everyone on my blog. Please share your views and suggest me how can I improve my writing skills. And please try not to be so harsh on me. 🙂

Sincerely,

A Wanderer’s Soul. ❤
