My macbook and I are turning hot with exhaustion!
But its only 10 AM!
AND I AM BEING A 10 AM SLOTH!!!
I am sitting in my cabin, trying to work out an equation which would justify the anomalous behavior of my gels towards certain cancerous cells (the scientist that I am by profession)!
I can’t get anything done today!
Thus, I decide to resort to my vent out zone! My itunes!
The first song I play is the golden “Tumne mujhey dekha honkar meherbaan.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHfx7R53N1g
It’s my all-time favorite but today it’s not enjoying the status it has in my Limbic system on most days!
I, then play, “Yaad hai” (from Aiyaari/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MF7KX9XyWZ4) and BINGO!
The song tugs at my heart so hard! It’s almost like a physical blow to my heart!
The melancholic vibes reach out to me and soothe me!
But, I am not sad in life! Thankfully, I have an enriched life!
Then why is this song doing the trick for me???
Before I realize it, I quickly shift in my chair and my fingers click onto the “Yaar ni milya” track by Hardy Sandhu (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVPdfPhXmR0) followed by Amy Virk’s “Qismat badaldi vekhi main” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xVp8m0fJSg)
PS: I AM A HINDI/PUNJABI songs/movies buff!!! I LOVE ALL THINGS DESI!!!
I am loving the grief that these songs are feeding me and I am left wondering-
AM I A SUCKER FOR SORROWS???
The moment of truth shines!!!
YES, I AM (for the UPCOMING WEEK)!!!
It’s the GORY CRIME SCENE TIME!!!
It’s the BLOODY PMS!!!
FINALLY, situation is DECRYPTED!
I, now quickly resort to my go to things:
- DRINK WATER LIKE A BOSS. Hydration is the answer to everything!
- ANNOUNCE to your Boyfriend/Husband/Sister that you are raging with rage, so they should STEER CLEAR (because usually they get the worst of you! I PITTY THEM)!!! No extra emotional baggage! You can be a bag of trash and they would know you that have lost your mind so that would make it easier for them to tolerate your crap!!!
- SLUG it out!!! Lie around the whole day! Do nothing! Use it as a legitimate excuse to shut your mind which is always sprinting! LEARN TO UNWIND!!!
- DITCH FASHION! Do not wear jeans! Wear super loose and comfy clothes (Esp. if you belong to my part of the world. READ: TROPICAL)!Kick your heels. Strut around in those cool white sneakers!
- Do all things SAPPY! This is your time of the month to turn into the kind of music/movies you like and make others bear with it as well!!!
- Give your body a caffeine break! Get yourself a TALL GLASS of MILK. CALCIUM is your magic potion!
- Eat all your dark chocolates while you also EAT Healthy (become a cow/eat all things leafy) and Exercise. This you should do anyway all the days of your life/ONLY IF YOU LOVE YOUR LIFE i.e.!
- Lavender on your pillow (to calm your nerves) and evening primrose oil (for your cramps and period-acne).
SATIATE THE PMS-ing SATAN, so that the SATAN doesn’t VAMP YOU!!!
