'Carrey'ed away

I never thought of Jim Carrey to be funny although I do like his movies. It is the high dose of melodramatic expressions and that mouth which is open a few inches more than it should be which disturbs me. Otherwise, I think he is kind of cute.

Recently, I bumped into this video which was shared by one of my friends in Facebook. I was immediately intrigued because it said “Commencement address at Maharishi University of Management”. I should admit that I am somewhat drawn to commencement and graduation addresses. So, I opened this video and played it hoping to see what Jim Carrey had to offer for students. I have to tell you, I was surprised. In fact, it was overwhelming and I even took notes when he spoke about decisions made out of love and fear and asking universe for what we want. I thought it was much more impactful that Paulo Coelho’s Alchemist. It was B-E-A-UTIFUL!  The genuineness which reflected from every word he said and every joke he cracked is unbelievable and so unlike his movies, it gave me goose bumps.
I do believe that when you ask for something wholeheartedly, you happen to get it; sooner or later. But never forget to ask and never be afraid to ask! :)


  1. I came across this video, but didn't see it. Will check it out in Youtube. Thanks for the reco.

  2. His speech was heartfelt and humorous. We cannot forget his "unique" voice.

  3. I heard about the video but did not watch it. I am surely gonna watch the same from you tube. Thanks for the share.

'Yo-Yo' Tribe - A Meme

OK. Time for some fun, folks! Walk down the streets of any city, you are sure to find weirdos of all kinds. I am not being judgmental here, but trust me, there are a bunch of people who think of themselves as the coolest tribe on earth and the cool-ness is defined by their hair-dos and hair styles.  Let me give you some examples here...

Beginning the meme with a Zen-like look. I should admit that this look is more 'yogic' than weird. But only until he doesn't untie that bun on top! I name them the Zen tribe! :D
This style screams attention; attention from railroad signals to be specific. There are so many parallel tracks for trains to ply! The Awesome Railroad Tribe!

Well, well, I only get to see between my strands of hair and this is called 'Looking- through-the-hair-look'. "Are you smiling? winking? blushing? I don't have a clue!"

"Fine, I am growing a pine forest in my head and yes, it is fall time and some trees are starting to change color. I be…

Make Up and Me (Not Me)

They say people who don't know to dance have two left feet. Although, I might have two left feet myself, what is more interesting is I might actually have two left hands.

Okay, I understand that's funny but here is why:

If you are a girl or a boy or a boy who looks like a girl, you would probably know that it is a thing now to have a makeup blog or vlog or youtube channel in your name. I bumped into this world of cosmetics, beauty blogs and tutorials only a few months ago. For those who don't know about it, let me tell you, it is a crazy, ruthless and unbelievable world.

Heard of these? Snail slime masks, Placenta hair masks, Seaweed bathing creams, Microblading.... and endless other such insane stuff. These are insane but quite popular among beauty enthusiasts and they even swear by the benefits of such products.

These are otherwise cringe-worthy products in my world. I use gramflour+tumeric face mask, Coconut oil hair mask and  a normal, cheap bathing soap and my skin i…

[Home and Decor] :: Ideas for a perfect home

I have long been envisioning a place which is soulful and dreamy; a place that would like to call home.The essentials of my idea of a perfect home are:
Family and friends – They are the soulfulness and the life of every home. They are indeed those elements that make a ‘house’ a ‘sweet home’. Can’t do without’em!
Space – I am stuck with this space conundrum every time I enter an under-construction building. There seems to be a gap here. There were homes in earlier days which advocated spatial freedom and now everyone seem to look for compact homes. Think about living in concrete boxes?! I understand the money-factor involved but some with enough and more are unwilling to go for a spacious place too. The heritage houses of south India are perfect examples of space management when it comes to homes.
Sunlight - Who wants to live in a cave or a scary house?! In Vasthu Shastra and Feng Shui, we would notice a simple yet striking similarity which encompasses the need for sunlight to flow throu…
