Little Things

By Monday, November 26, 2012 ,

For a second you can't remember any past or worry about the future. All you can think about is the wind blowing through your hairs, the really cold butterscotch ice cream and the warmness of his smile.

Its funny how little moments get stuck in our memory and refuse to leave. I might have had endless dinners at fancy restaurants but a small dinner in a little train compartment always comes up to my mind when I think of the best dinners of my life. I might have heard really witty and humorous jokes all around but when I actually laugh, I don't have a reason. Something cracks me up and then I can't stop laughing for hours.

Even now when I listen to Nelly Furtado, I am drifted to my old school days when I used to smuggle my phone somehow just so I could listen to music. ( Okay, don't you dare tell my teachers I am still scared of a few of them !)

I wear some of my old clothes just because they remind me of better days. I have a 6 year old pair of jeans that I still wear because I have a lot of memories attached  to it. ( No it's not what you think, you dirty mind !)
My converse shoes are much more older. I would still wear them but the sole has come out,I used to wear them 24/7 . I have tried buying a new pair but the idea of replacing them is just heart breaking.

And then it's such a pain for me to change my phones. I mean yes, the new one's are definitely much better but when I look at my old phone it reminds me of all those funny texts and late night phone calls. I still have my old phone tucked carefully in my cupboard. It might not work but it still makes me happy. It reminds me of my school, my friends, my first date and a lucky wrong number.

My dearest Nokia,
 you might be junk to a lot of people, but for me you will always be very, very special 


I think it's really important to hold on to certain memories, because they can help us get over those difficult times when everything seems to be falling apart and nothing seems to be going our way.
I wrote this after reading Roshan's post, go over and read. He's a freakishly funny guy

Wow. .u grabbed my attention with the first line itself. .And your entire post, its really like a smooth flow of breeze at the right time making me feel like i am free from tensions an troubles and i feel floating in air with nothing else in my mind . .but the sweet small things which brings happiness in my life. .Should really appreciate that you have a wonderful flow of words when u start expressing what you feel in your mind. .
    . .and you really made me smile when you mentioned abt Nokia and how other (android) guys are treating it these days. Me too is a die hard Nokia fan and not just that its my first phone which holds a lot of memories and moments which are so cute and lovely. .:)

  5. Nostaliga is a good thing to have. I am happy almost all the time, but some of the best times were when we were kids, and the only thing that seemed important was to wait for 430 pm, when we'd rush out to the neighbourhood park and play cricket. Good times!

  6. Beautiful post. This is the first time I am coming to your blog and I loved this post. I can sense your emotional connect there with each and every item of yours. Its so true. The line about the dinner in the train compartment kept me interested enough to read till the end. Its right when they say memories are meant to be cherished!
