Day 11: My views on drugs & alcohol

Well, to start with this interesting topic; I was exposed to alcohol when I came to Pune for my graduation, when I did go out for dinner with my friends or spent time at my friends' houses and they'd have drinks and hookah. That was a time when I used to think bad about people who drank. Then eventually I realized that I couldn’t judge people based on that and today I do have many close friends who drink.

As I got more familiar with this place and this lifestyle, I saw teenagers who drank out of their minds and felt a little embarrassed, some who had done something while wasted and then regretted later. Some just do it to fill up their social profile pages with photos of them and their friends holding glasses of cocktails and beer bottles. They think it’s glamorous. Well, it’s really not!

I won’t deny that drinking is not at all bad. But getting addicted to it or making it just a glamorous habit could turn things bad.

Don’t get me wrong, I am no one to judge anyone by their habits but when it comes to drugs, that is a big NO NO for me! And I just can’t help but get this negative feeling about it and also about people who use them.
I’ve heard about youngsters committing suicide after taking drugs and experiencing hallucinations and many more negative things. So I could never be in a relationship with a guy who uses them; in fact I even can’t be good friends with them, it starts bothering me somewhere!

But at the end of the day, I'm never going to tell anyone what to do unless it is affecting me in a negative way.

Day 10: Things am afraid of...

I’m afraid of heights. Some people are fascinated by the view they get to see from up above but, If am at a height somewhere, last thing I would do is look down. ‘Coz from there all I imagine of will be what if I fall off and that sends shivers down my spine.

I’m afraid of clowns. They wear this scary make up and the fake smile. I hate that.

Am afraid about future
Not exactly future actually but I’m afraid that I spend so much time to be happy right now, live in the moment that I forget to think about the future circumstances.

Something terrible happening to one of my loved ones or family members
This one, I think everyone is afraid of. 

Overly crowded places
I hate over-crowded places, getting lost in the crowd. That’s probably one of the reasons I don’t like clubbing. Loud music, drunken sweaty crowd, pushing themselves against each other, the idea itself is something I don’t even wish to think of.

Oncoming trains
I’m afraid of oncoming trains and that feeling right before a train approaches, that feeling at your feet and the sound.

Tight spaces
Just the idea of being stuck in a small, tight space without being able to get out seems so suffocating and scary!

I am afraid of the dark. 
I am not afraid of dark as such…in fact I love dark, quiet, candlelit places and all…but me alone in a dark room or lonely isolated dark place is something I am afraid of.

I am afraid of losing someone I love. 
I won’t be scared of death myself, but losing someone I love is something I won’t be able to handle!

Do I even need to explain this one?

Day 8: A place you've traveled to

About this post I would rather like to describe it with pictures instead of words.
I believe that would make more justice to the topic!

Do lemme know if it did :)
