Surprise: I missed a post yesterday.

So I didn’t post anything yesterday but unlike previous occasions where I genuinely forgot to post something, yesterday I didn’t post anything on purpose.


Well for starters, yesterday was a busy day. I met up with a friend and worked on our college applications together, specially the Personal Statements so when I got home it was pretty late and I couldn’t really get out of College-Application-mood until I went to sleep.

Other than my meeting my friend for application discussions and whatnot, I ran into an unexpected surprise yesterday.

At the mall in Kandy, there was secondhand book sale that was totally unanounced and stuff so when I saw it, I was literally shocked into paralysis.

I stood there for a moment not knowing what to make of this sudden stroke of luck. Now if you don’t understand that, let me say this.

Secondhand book sales are probably the most interesting places in the world because not only do they sell books that are really cheap, they sell books with a history of their own. These books have inscriptions, doodles, bent corners and maybe a bitten page or two that speak monuments about previous lives.

Others find such instances of wear and tear in a book off-putting but I actually like it. Not that I intentionally mistreat my own books. I actually take super good care of them.

So inevitably, I ended up buying a book which was only a 189 Rupees. Which is a super-awesome bargain. Here’s the book I bought:


It didn’t have much signs of wear and tear unfortunately but it was still a super good read. I mean it was a story told in poems. That right there made this book tres magnifique.


1. I need a typewriter. I don’t know why but I just realized yesterday that I should probably lug the one downstairs up to my room and use it to write stuff so that I can become even more hipstery than I already am (I’m not that big a hipster actually)

2. Good books come in all shapes, sizes and forms. This was the first poetry-story book I read and I loved it. I wonder if there are more.
