So my friend Ray asked me a seemingly innocuous question on Whatsapp.
Ray: "Hey buddy, what's happening?"
This is my rant as a reply:
"I'm busy with a bunch of things. Work, music, boyfriend, socializing, reading, learning, etc.
I have recently started following politics because of the increasingly worrying situation in India for minorities--sexual or otherwise. So I've subscribed to Indian Express, Mint, and India Today on my Kindle. That's about an hour of reading and comprehending/framing opinions.
Plus, I'm part of a book club. We just read Still Alice by Lisa Genova (about a middle-aged researcher diagnosed run early-onset Alzheimer's). The other members and the discussions are very intellectually stimulating.
On the side, I'm reading Harry Potter series, Dune (Frank Herbert), India: A History (John Keaye), etc.
Music scene has been busy with two bands being really active. One of them (SpaceHuggers), in which I'm the primary songwriter, is planning to record an album. So that's a lot of preparation and working on songs.
Work goes on as usual.
Plus, when you are seeing someone for a bunch of years, socializing with the respective friend circles also becomes a lot of "work." That takes up a whole bunch of evenings.
In the middle of all of this, I'm trying to find some time for myself. For example, I watched today's match. :)
Sorry for the rant but I had fun summarizing my life to you.
