Ever since I returned to Vancouver from my recent trip to India, I awaken at 3 every morning and stay awake for a good hour. During this twilight insomnia sometimes I take a walk or talk to friends in India. Last night, however, I took a jab at poetry. Continue reading “Poetry: It’s Stupid, It’s Free”
People walk up to me and seem to repeat the same words over and over:
I’m so sorry.
And all I can find the courage to say back to them is:
Here’s a confession: I’ve been lying.
Often I’ve been asked in interviews and sometimes during intense career conversations with my parents, “Sonia, what do you even want to do?” Continue reading “Dream Job”
I visited my aunt yesterday and spent the entire day with her and my cousins. She served me some snacks in the evening while I was working on my Mac. I think I was on Twitter, checking my feed when she asked me: “Sonia, what do you do for yourself?” Continue reading “What do you do for yourself?”
I spent my Monday morning (today) at Sonic Nation. To find out why play the audio embedded below. Continue reading “Sonia on 104.9 Sonic, Robot VS Human”
On the last night of my first work trip, I was very lucky to find shelter with an old Russian speaking couple of Armenian origin. Continue reading “Follow your heart: to do or not to do!”
On this beautiful morning of June 22nd, 2013, I’d like to thank the powers of the Universe for allowing me to feel and see the wonderful world that we are blessed with!
In the past few months, in various ways, I have learnt that mornings are the best and most important part of one’s day. I know that if I sleep on early, I tend to like my early mornings. I definitely know that I enjoy not having to rush outside the door, struggling to get to work (or school) on time. The problem with my mornings was that I was not doing anything specific on the few days that I was able to see daybreak. Hence, for the first time today, I have decided to swim before breakfast. This is part of my new morning ritual. I chose to start small.
The 1/2 hour drive home from Hope feels so long when you’re excited to get home and meet your loved ones after over a month! and .. the radio plays .. I Wanna Go Home by Michael Buble. *singing: I’m lucky I know, but I got to go home* Today has brought back memories from days in boarding high school. That last day of school when my grandpa would finally reach Dehradun after a two-day journey by train from Mumbai. And I would pack up everything I thought I needed (and not needed) for the next two months with family. My heart would beat so fast soon as I saw my grandpa’s rickshaw approaching the girls hostel. My feelings today have been somewhat similar.
I loved exploring British Columbia in a way I didn’t think possible and sis the kind of work that I find most satisfying. Hopefully, I was able to make a positive different in the lives of everyone I met. I have nothing but gratitude for everyone who made all the experiences on this trip possible for me.
With all my heart, I thank you!
McBride, check. Valemount, check. Blue River, check. Clearwater, check. Next on list: Barriere, Hope, Chilliwack and HOME!
This trip has been nothing less than full of surprises. And tonight was no different. I went out to dine in Blue Loon Grill in Clearwater. To my surprise, we saw performers ready to begin singing. What’s more exciting? They were our hotel neighbours! We got to sit and chat together, they told us a little bit about themselves, and we did the same. Oh and about our hotel… It is beach facing!!
