out of the darkness


i’m volunteering for the out of the darkness walk hosted by the american foundation for suicide prevention on september 27th. the proceeds are used to fund research, educational programs, and support systems for survivors and people who have lost loved ones to suicide. it’s important to me, considering i am a part of both groups.

i’ve been incredibly lucky over the past year or so. the treatment for my depression has worked amazingly thus far. i’m in a rigorous nursing program, i have a great job, i’ve made friends and kept up with hobbies and honestly feel pretty damn good. there’s so much going on these days, but i’m functional enough to handle it. it would’ve been impossible just a year or two ago. god knows i wasn’t planning on living long enough to see if i could pull any of it off.

not everyone is so fortunate.

a lot of you have been reading this blog for a long while. some of you have been around from the beginning, which still amazes me. i’ve linked my fundraiser page in the title. donations would be incredible, but hell, i’d be grateful even if you just spread the word about the event and organization. i’m already indebted to you for your support.

for those of you coping with the loss of someone you love, may your grief lighten. for those of you struggling to stay alive, may your burden ease. and for those of you who have already left, may you finally find rest.


People talk about how hard long distance relationships are but nobody talks about the struggle of long distance friendships. I would give my left leg right now to just be able to sit in our pjs and watch movies or to just be able to give a big fucking hug.

Is anyone else amused over PC’s butt-hurt reaction to that “Priyanka Chopra gets more money pretending to be Mary Kom than Mary Kom” comment/tweet/whatever it was?

I mean, society pays you a pittance to engage in activities that build the nation. This would include most sports — other than…

The pitter patter of a shyly receding monsoon, greeted me as I stepped out from the airport. Loud hoardings screamed the divinity of the state of Kerala, my homeland. Everywhere I looked people were scrambling about in distracted joy, for it was party time in the toddy loving, communism touting Indian state; it was time for Onam…..
