I would probably have done a normal “Hey! This is Sonal and this is my website”. But I feel like switching to the “Hannah Baker” mode. I hope you’re ready, because I’m going to tell you the story of my life. More specifically, the story of various things happening with and around me mostly, probably every day. And if you somehow followed me to this website, then you’re probably a part of the stories too. Welcome to Reels and Feels.
Okay, that sounded too dramatic, and ironic as well, since I sort of didn’t like 13 Reasons Why as much as the hype. Wait, why am I talking about a TV series? I should be talking about Reels and Feels.
We’re in a fast-paced world, right? Running from one place to another, fuelling ourselves for all sorts of opportunities, trying to get ahead of the people around us, so on and so forth. So much so that we actually stopped living our lives. Or even more precisely, we stopped realizing the value of the small things that make up our lives. When was the last time you slowed down to watch that beautiful butterfly hovering over that big, bright dahlia, or the last time you stopped for a few minutes to play hopscotch with the group of kids down the street? You might probably thrash me with a “There’s no time, dude. I’m so busy!” logic, and I’ll probably agree as well. But what are we doing turning into zombies?
Anyway, probably it’s time I slowed down and started appreciating the things around. The world’s not an entirely bad place, right? If you know me, you might also be knowing the countless times I’ve tried to write about various things. But you might also be knowing my extent of my laziness- how quickly I give up on seeing and showing the world. Not anymore fellas. Well, hopefully. Here, on Reels and Feels, I’ll be writing about the things I observe around me, about the things that affect me and you and anyone else, about the things that are usually abstract but deep, about memories and perhaps I might weave stories as well. I’ll also share tech posts at times. I’ll also share fun stuffs on weekends, like a list of jazz songs you just gotta check out, or probably a list of books you need to read at least once in your life, or an anecdote, and things like that. Oh! And did I tell you that I’ll be posting photographs too?
As of now, this is all I have to offer on a platter for people to see. So here’s hoping to a good start, and a steady future.
Presenting to you “Reels and Feels”.
