SPECTRUMS OF RED

“Red is such an interesting color to correlate with emotion, 
because it’s on both ends of the spectrum. On one end you have
 happiness, falling in love, infatuation with someone, passion, 
all that. On the other end, you’ve got obsession, jealousy, 
danger, fear, anger and frustration.”
- Taylor Swift


In this world there are three types of people: (1) those who date for fun, (2) those who don't waste time dating unless they see some future value in them, and (3) those who don't date but only have sexual encounters.

If you are the small proportion of the population who is like me, who fall under the second category, the world is a jungle. The third category of people are easy to avoid, their intentions loud and clear, and for that I have much respect. They know their time is valuable and they know what they want, that is something the second and third categories share in common. It is the first category of people that you are prey to.

GOLDEN GIRL

"If you don't build your dreams, 
someone will hire you to help build theirs."
-Tony Gaskin


I go by the idea that crazy is better than normal. Wild is better than boring. Insanity is what creates greatness. People call Kanye crazy but if he wasn't crazy do you think he would be so successful? Everything seems wild and absurd until someone does it. I mean who decided it was a good idea to create a box that makes sounds and shines out light? Impossible things are only impossible until someone is crazy enough to bring it on themselves to make it possible.

DARK ROSE

'The woman is the reflection of her man'
- Not Brad Pitt*


So I had a recent conversation with a dear friend, K, about his long term relationship with his girlfriend. It is remarkable how long they've been together but he tells me that recently his relationship had hit a rough patch and they almost broke up right before their anniversary. Most relationships fall out for the same reason, things get 'boring'. After so many years, it is easy for the spark to be lost from time to time. And hence it is constant work, relationships aren't easy. Many people know this, but how many people really know this. Anyway, the discussion I wanted to share here is not about regaining the spark (because even I am still trying to figure that part out) but rather to discuss the certain things he said in reference to things he didn't like coming from his girlfriend:

TIISCH TIISCH

'There is more to life than 
increasing its speed."
- Mohandas Gandhi


*Tsk Tsk, a sound of disapproval. And Tiisch Tiisch? Seems like a cuter version of the sound of disapproval. Disapproving the fact that we are yet again indulging our taste buds, but whatever, we deserve it! Stepping into law, it has warned us of its potential affects on our mental health, the potential for depression. That's why there's often free food and ice-cream and cute things like free massages during 'Stress-less Week' on the lead up to exams. But one week is not enough if anyone is truly on the verge of a mental breakdown. Don't push yourself too hard. I know I did. I wasn't just all words when I wrote Renegade, I kept saying yes to opportunities until I recently had to start saying no to everything, because I had completely exhausted myself and it had a backlash effect. I think this is the definition of burning out.
