I’m alive.


I won’t blame you if you’ve assumed I’m dead, hibernating or never coming back. After reading numerous posts on how to get back to your blog after taking a break I’ve decided that I’m not going to follow anything I’ve read. How can I just not talk about my absence from the blog and just avoid it like it should get a hint and run away? Not happening. 

I stopped blogging in October, and back then it wasn’t conscious decision. I didn’t just wake up and decide to stop blogging. It happened. Amidst the piles of work and sleepless nights, I stopped having the ability to process my thoughts here. I was still writing, for class, but I never figured out how to access this space again. For a while I just got caught up with assignments. But then, in the last month or so of being relatively free, it’s been hard to return here.  

I think I just felt like I had too much to say, too much to catch up on and I’d been gone too long. Everything looked unfamiliar. 

Today, I woke up and decided that I was tired of feeling like a stranger on my blog and that is why I’m here. For a long time I felt like I’d outgrown this space or I couldn’t do this anymore but that wasn’t it. I’ve written on this blog since before I could construct meaningful sentences, there’s so much here and this blog has been a constant in the process of growing up. It always will be. I think the unfamiliarity scared me. But I’m done with waking up and feeling like I can’t write here. 

A little break the ice thing since it’s been long: 

I’ve been painting and documenting my doodles and drawings on everydaywithart.tumblr.com
I’ve been travelling a lot more in the last two months than I have in the last two years. 
Being back on this blog feels really nice. It always was my happy space.
There’s a surprise coming up soooooooooooooon.
 I graduated. I’m done with college. 
 I cut my hair a while ago. 
I’m still fat. 

Outfit details: Skirt: Splash, Shoes: American Swan

I’ve often been told, "Oh Sonaksha, you look so pretty, but...if you lost a little weight beta (child).” I’m so tired of the buts. I’m so tired of having to appear thin. So I decided to wear this - a crop top and this skirt that I love and everyone else hates because it ‘makes me look fat’. Well there’s nothing to be made, because I am. 

Now that it’s out of the way. 

I’ll see you soon.

I’ve missed you. 



  1. Taking a break is important when it comes to writing, and I'm glad you took that break and have come back :) Lovely to see you again, that skirt is lovely on you!

  2. Do they have this skirt in black? It looks so cool, and you're wearing it so well. How do you make these faces, and photograph these poses? Sometimes I wanna shoot OOTD posts, too... I'm so glad you are back! Back again, Shady's back, tell a friend! :-)

  3. Ooh, and those shoesssss. But the skirt. Always the skirt, forever - the skirt. I'm buying that necklace for Rs. 2800. It's okay, right? What to do now?
