Van Occupanther

I am loving the songs that I am finding during this winter break. You have to check this one out. Its somewhere along Indie/rock or Folk/Rock. 😀

I must be careful now in my steps
Years of calculations and the stress
My science is waiting, nearly complete
One glass will last for nearly a week

Let me not get down from walking with no-one
and if I stumble from exhaustion
These buckets are heavy, I fill them with water
I could ask these people, but I shouldn’t bother

Oh no, I’ve stumbled, was I going too fast?
Some get angry, some of them laugh
They told me I wouldn’t, but I found an answer
I’m Van Occupanther, I’m Van Occupanther!

Let me not be too consumed with this world
Sometimes I want to go home
and stay out of sight for a long time

Let me not be too consumed with this world
Sometimes I want to go home
and stay out of sight for a long time

4 am Artwork obsession. 

My 4 am creative spirit wanted to draw today. So I drew one of the Twin Sister album covers, with some modifications. 

The reasons for my departure from the original artwork are : absence of a brown colour pencil, and my recent fascination with Van Gogh. As a result of that you have the green sofa and the sunflowers. I am gonna go put this in my pseudo artwork collection.  

A day “well spent”.

Did not wake up. The entire day! Its so frustrating, because I feel I can hear the fat building up on my skin making it thicker every single second. How do I procrastinate so well, I have no clue. But even if the inverted commas make the highlight of this post, the interesting part is, it was in a way a day well spent.

So what if I did not stay up and was productive the entire day (that’s how the justification of a procrastinator begins), when I was finally awake, I spent that time watching this movie called Frances Ha (2013). It was an interesting piece. For the most of it I was completely involved, following the protagonist and her circumstances. I think what made it even better for me was that I am somewhat going through the same phase – a woman in her 20s trying to understand what she wants to do, and trying to find a purpose (i am vacant in that respect as of now). Another thing, the entire movie is in black and white and I am a sucker for B&W. So thanks to those 1.5 hours, I don’t exactly feel shitty right now. Thanks for listening to my rants.

Hesse and Vacations.

Exams are over, so is the current purpose of my life. The only thing that does not work out with vacations is you loose your purpose. All that time I spent giving my exams, I kept thinking, “when will vacations come??”. Because of course, I don’t want to give exams either. But when vacations do arrive, I spend all my time sleeping. So I picked up something today, which I had been planning to read for a very long time. DEMIAN by HERMANN HESSE! The reason I chose this novel is because the epigraph struck a chord with me. It goes like:

All I wanted to do was try to live the life that was inside me, trying to get out. Why was that so hard?

So lets see what tone does this novel set for my vacations. I just felt like writing something again. I shall revisit with my mood-swings and some spoilers.
