Conversations 22 - The Awkwardness Of Our Love

When I met you for the first time, I remember how I struggled to find my voice, let alone string sentences for a proper conversation. I recall how you managed to keep a slight smile on your face despite the awkwardness of the situation.

To be honest, I can't believe why you continued to talk with me despite the evident contrasts of our personalities. Perhaps it was the safety of your room when we chatted over the internet or maybe it was my 180 behaviour behind the comfort of the computer screen that kept you interested.

I mean, you clearly weren't in search of a male companion those days, even more so when that guy was the joke of the classroom. I am certain you remember what the story was that year and if you don't, then I, maybe, am just giving myself too much credit. Maybe I am doing that either way.

Do you remember when I actually managed to gather enough courage to come and talk to you? That was when you were pissed off with me for reasons that I was unaware of, lea…

Quotes 031

"Even though a good mood will keep you happy, it continues to drift from you just by a little bit everyday, similar to how bad memories get left behind as mere moments from a distant past."

Would You Side With Light Yagami's Character From Death Note?

Before we get started, I'd like to confirm that the write-up contains major spoilers for Death Note, so I would suggest interested readers watch, or at least be aware of the primary plot of the show.

Death Note was one of the most popular and critically acclaimed anime from the last decade, and for good reasons.

As a series and despite the obviousness, Death Note, throughout its runtime, continued to ask viewers about the true identity of the villain, which is one of the major reasons why it is such a viable candidate to introduce anime to new audiences. If the concept of killing a person by writing their name in a magical notebook isn't interesting enough, the battle of wits between the two leads is guaranteed to keep your attention through the series.

Light Yagami (aka Kira), a genius high school student in Japan finds this notebook and upon realising its potential, sets himself on a path to cleanse the world of crimes and criminals through a reign of fear. The other main ch…

Quotes 030

"When 24 hours a day is not enough for anyone to get things done, it gets easy to start living one's life through the lens of others. That's where social media comes in."

Conversation 21 - My World With You

I can't remember the number of times that you've managed to control my panicking self but I know that that number is huge. It's so surprising that I always shock myself with my reactions in a tough situation.

It is in direct contrast with what I see myself to be - a calm and collected person who'd solve his own problems and yours with full attention and effort. And yet, I'd probably trip and fall if you aren't around to call my name.

These panic attacks are a time when I become a rather difficult person to deal with and I can always sense your frustration with my behaviour in those moments. It's amazing how you manage to keep your cool in spite of that but I'll take that both of us losing our heads isn't the best way to go about solving a problem.

With that said, I'd love to let you know that I've been doing quite well with myself in your absence. I've approached new situations with a calm head and I guess you would be proud if you coul…
