  • Wake Up, Buttercup: The Shocking Truth That No One is Coming to Rescue You

    It's time to snap out of it and face reality. You're not going to be rescued by a knight in shining armor, a superhero, or even a friendly neighborhood cat. The truth is, no one is going to save you. Not even the government, your parents, or the Tooth Fairy. You might think that the world is conspiring against you, or that fate is a cruel mistress, but I hate to break it to you: it's just not that interesting. No one cares enough about your problems to drop everything and come to your aid. No one is going to wipe away your tears or hold your hand through every difficult moment. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you're on your own. You have to be your own hero, and you have to save yourself. You have to be the one to make the tough decisions, the sacrifices, and the hard work. You're the only one who can change your life for the better. So, stop waiting for someone to come and save you. Stop relying on others to do the heavy lifting. And most of all, stop feeling sorry for yourself. Get up, put on your big girl/boy pants, and start doing the work. No one is coming to rescue you, but you can rescue yourself. In conclusion, it's time to take responsibility for your own life. You can either wallow in self-pity or you can start taking control. The choice is yours. So, what will it be? Love, Aayushi.

  • The Obsession Continues: "Tale of Nine Tailed”

    Ladies and gentlemen, gather around because I have a tale to tell. The tale of my obsession with the Korean drama "Tale of Nine Tailed" and its main male character, Lee Yeon. Now, I know what you might be thinking, "Oh my god, what's in that show that you just keep watching and re-watching it?" Well, let me tell you, it's the plot. The plot is amazing. The plot being Lee Yeon, the main male character. I mean, who wouldn't fall for him? Have you seen his jawline? It's like it was chiseled by the gods themselves. I mean, we all love a good jawline, right? I'm currently looking in the mirror while I type this to appreciate my own toned jawline. His personality, character, loyalty, and neatness are all top-notch. No offense to my family and friends, but they drive me mad because the shared spaces are always messed up by them. Like, please can you let your girl chill and enjoy the clean and neat space she organized? But I still love them, so it's okay. In real life, I haven't met someone yet to match my organized and neat freak behavior. But let's be real, there is very little probability of finding an Aayushi-level neat person. I have no idea why, but people who are organized and neat are like angels to me. Though my bestie Harini is neat enough, just not on the days when she's in her "cockroach mode" which is eat, sleep, repeat. Anyway, back to Lee Yeon. He is perfection. Like, oh my god. Who wouldn't simp him? And oh my god, who doesn't like the main character wearing classy clothes? And oh my god, his loyalty and patience. Total classy aesthetic. And then the female character is independent, strong, and fearless. Basically, so brave and smart. And the plot is like the cherry on top of the sundae. So, there you have it folks, my love and obsession with "Tale of Nine Tailed" and its main male character, Lee Yeon. I'll probably end up watching it for the fifth time and still find new things to appreciate about him. But, let's be real, I'm just a hopeless romantic who can't resist a charming, loyal and patient character. But hey, at least my love for this show is keeping me entertained and that's all that matters, right? Love, Aayushi Satam.

  • The Great Curtain Clash: A Battle Between Darkness and Brightness Lovers

    As a self-proclaimed lover of darkness, I must say that I find myself in a constant battle with my dear mother. While I prefer the cozy and comfortable atmosphere that a dark room provides, my mom just can't get enough of that pesky sunlight and brightness. It's a constant struggle, really. During the day, I'll close the curtains to block out the sun and create my perfect dark haven. But my mom, she just can't stand it. She's like a vampire, but instead of being afraid of the sun, she craves it. She'll open the curtains wide and let the light pour in, completely ruining my mood. It's not just the curtains either. My mom is always turning on the lights in every room, making sure every corner is illuminated. She even has a thing for buying bright and colorful home decor, which I find to be a complete eyesore. But, I must admit, my mom does have a point. Sunlight is essential for our health and well-being. It's a natural source of Vitamin D and can boost our mood and energy levels. But, let's be real here, who needs that when you can just curl up in a dark room and let your mind wander? I suppose we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one. While my mom loves the brightness, I'll stick to my darkness. And, who knows, maybe one day my mom will come around and see the beauty in the dark. But, let's be real, that's not going to happen. So, to all my fellow darkness lovers out there, keep fighting the good fight. We may be outnumbered by the brightness lovers, but we'll always have our dark and cozy corners to escape to. Love, Aayushi Satam.

  • Realizing the Boring Reality of Life: Crying in the Corner Edition

    *sighs* Life is boring. Like, super boring. It's not like the movies where the protagonist goes on a wild adventure and saves the day. Or the TV series where the characters have exciting love triangles and drama. Or the books where the main character goes on a journey of self-discovery and defeats an evil empire. No, no, no. Life is just...mundane. *looks around the room* This is it. This is my life. Sitting in a corner, staring at a blank wall, and feeling sorry for myself. But, you know what? I don't even have the energy to feel sorry for myself anymore. It's just...meh. *takes a sip of coffee* And let’s not even get started on relationships. It's not like in The Office where Jim and Pam have the cutest love story ever. Or in Friends where Ross and Rachel are "on a break" and we all know they're meant to be together. No, no, no. It's just swiping left and right on dating apps and going on awkward first dates. shudders *leans back in chair* But, you know what? There is one TV show that gets it. That understands the boring reality of life. That show is Schitt's Creek. It's about a wealthy family who loses everything and has to move to a small town. And it's real. So mundane. So relatable. It's like they're saying, "Hey, life is boring. But that's okay. We're all in this together." *smiles* So, if you're ever feeling down about the boring reality of life, just remember that you're not alone. And watch Schitt's Creek. It'll make you feel better. laughs Or, you know, it won't. But at least you'll have something to watch while you cry in the corner. *wipes away a tear* But, seriously, life is boring. And that's okay. It's just a reminder that we should appreciate the small things and make the most out of our mundane lives. So, cheers to the boring reality of life! *raises coffee cup* (because we don't want to risk raising a red wine glass in front of my mother who may be reading this blog) Love, Aayushi Satam.

  • The Heartbreak Chronicles: The Late Night Therapy Sessions with My Friends

    It's late at night and I'm wide awake. Why, you might ask? Oh, just the usual reason - my friends have a knack for falling for the wrong people and keep me up at night whenever they're heartbroken and need me as their therapist. Let's be real, I'm not just pretty but also wise, hence, their therapist. It's like watching Taylor Swift's love life unfold in front of me, except it's not just one person, it's all of them. One minute they're singing "Love Story" and the next they're "Blank Space-ing" the person who broke their heart. It's a never-ending cycle. It's like Ross dating Rachel, and then Rachel dating Joey, and then Ross dating someone else, and then Rachel dating someone else, and then Ross dating Rachel again. It's like watching an episode of Friends on repeat, except it's not just one episode, it's every episode. And then there's Chandler dating Janice. I mean, seriously, who keeps dating someone who says "OH MY GOD" every two seconds? But that's how my friends keep falling for the wrong people and I'm left picking up the pieces. It's like watching - Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, constantly chasing after Warner and getting her heart broken, only to end up with the right guy in the end. - Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl, falling for the bad boy and then realizing he's not who she thought he was. - any romantic comedy movie, where the protagonist goes through the ups and downs of love, only to end up with the right person in the end. But in real life, it's not always so clear cut. My friends are constantly jumping from one relationship to the next, never taking the time to heal and move on from their past heartbreaks. They're always searching for that perfect love, just like in the movies, but in reality, it's not always so easy to find. So, here I am, wide awake at 2 AM, trying to give my friend advice on how to move on from their latest heartbreak. But let's be real, I'm not a therapist, I'm just a friend who has seen it all before. And as much as I love my friends, I can't help but wonder if they'll ever learn. Will they ever stop falling for the wrong people? Only time will tell. In the meantime, I'll just make a cup of tea, and wait for the next heartbreak to come my way. After all, I am their therapist, and I'm pretty sure Elle Woods, Serena van der Woodsen, and all the romantic comedy movie protagonists would approve. Love, Aayushi Satam.

  • Sexual Orientation 101

    Welcome to Sexual Orientation 101 where you'll learn all about the rainbow spectrum of sexual orientations. Just like a rainbow, there are many different shades and hues, and we'll be exploring them all no exceptions. First, let's start with the basics. Sexual orientation refers to the type of people we are attracted to, whether that be emotionally, physically, or both. This can include attraction to people of the same gender, opposite gender, or multiple genders. It is important to note that sexual orientation is not something that can be changed or "cured", and it is a fundamental aspect of who we are as individuals. Now, let's dive into the different types of sexual orientations. The most well-known are heterosexuality and homosexuality. Heterosexuality refers to being attracted to people of the opposite gender, while homosexuality refers to being attracted to people of the same gender. Bisexuality is another common sexual orientation, and refers to being attracted to both men and women. Pansexuality is similar, but refers to being attracted to people of all genders, including those who identify as non-binary or genderqueer. Asexuality is another sexual orientation that is often misunderstood. Asexual people do not experience sexual attraction, but they can still experience romantic attraction. There is also a spectrum within asexuality, with some people identifying as graysexual (experiencing sexual attraction only rarely) or demisexual (experiencing sexual attraction only after a strong emotional connection is formed). Lastly, let's talk about my own sexual orientation. I identify as straight, which means that I am attracted to people of the opposite gender. It is important to note that sexual orientation is not something that can be chosen or changed, and everyone should be respected for who they are. It is also important to note that sexual orientation can also be accompanied by preferred gender pronouns. My preferred gender pronouns are she/her, which means that I would like to be referred to as "she" or "her" in conversations. It is important to respect everyone's preferred pronouns and use them in conversations, as this can be a vital aspect of showing support and respect for someone's identity. In conclusion, Sexual Orientation 101 is an overview of the various sexual orientations that exist, and the importance of respecting and accepting the diversity of sexual orientations. Remember that everyone's journey is unique, and it is important to celebrate and accept diversity in all forms. As previously mentioned, my sexual orientation is straight. I am attracted to people of the opposite gender. It is important to note that my sexual orientation is not something that I have chosen or can change, but rather it is a fundamental aspect of who I am as an individual. It's also important to mention that being straight does not mean that I am not supportive of the LGBTQ+ community. I believe in acceptance and equality for all sexual orientations and gender identities. My sexual orientation does not define who I am as a person and does not determine my ability to support and advocate for the rights of others. It is essential to understand that sexual orientation is a spectrum and not a binary concept. Everyone is unique, and their sexual orientation is a vital aspect of their identity. Being a straight ally means that I can be supportive of the LGBTQ+ community and advocate for their rights and acceptance, regardless of my own sexual orientation. It's also essential to remember that sexual orientation is a personal and private matter, and everyone should be respected for who they are. I hope that this guide has helped you to understand more about the diversity of sexual orientations and how to support and respect the LGBTQ+ community. As a straight ally, it is important for me to understand and be aware of the types of experiences that my friends in the LGBTQ+ community may face. Some of these experiences may include: -Discrimination: Unfortunately, discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity is still a prevalent issue. My friends may experience discrimination in various forms, including harassment, bullying, and discrimination in the workplace or school. -Lack of representation: My friends may feel underrepresented in media, politics, and other areas of society. They may not see themselves reflected in the world around them, and this can be isolating and disheartening. -Pressure to conform: My friends may feel pressure to conform to societal expectations of gender and sexual orientation. This can be especially difficult for those who identify as non-binary or genderqueer. -Inadequate healthcare: My friends may have difficulty accessing healthcare that is inclusive and sensitive to their needs. They may also face discrimination in healthcare settings. As a straight ally, I can help my friends in the LGBTQ+ community by: -Being an active listener and supportive friend: I can be there to listen and support my friends when they need it. -Educating myself and others: I can learn more about the experiences of the LGBTQ+ community and share this information with others to raise awareness and promote acceptance. -Advocating for change: I can speak up against discrimination and advocate for policies and laws that support the rights and equality of the LGBTQ+ community. -Being an ally in the workplace or school: I can create a more inclusive and welcoming environment for my friends by standing up against discrimination and promoting acceptance. -Encourage them and support them in their self-expression: I can respect their choices of their identity, gender expression and pronouns. It is important to remember that being an ally is not a one-time thing but an ongoing effort. As a straight ally, I have a responsibility to be an advocate and support for my friends in the LGBTQ+ community, and for all members of the LGBTQ+ community. Frequently Asked Questions: Q: Is sexual orientation a choice? A: No, sexual orientation is not a choice. It is a fundamental aspect of who we are as individuals and cannot be changed or "cured". Q: Can you change your sexual orientation? A: No, sexual orientation is a fundamental aspect of who we are as individuals and cannot be changed.

Supporting and accepting the diversity of sexual orientations is important for creating a more inclusive and equitable society for everyone. Love, Aayushi Satam.

  • Angels Amidst the Panic

    It was a beautiful day, and I, the main character of this tragic tale, was feeling on top of the world. Little did I know, that would all change in a matter of minutes. I was sitting in my college lecture, minding my own business, when suddenly, the world started to spin and my chest felt tight. I was having a panic attack. But, as it turns out, I wasn't the only one. The next few days, I saw a parade of "fake people" faking panic attacks to get out of class and assignments. Suddenly, it seemed like everyone and their mother had a panic disorder. But let's be real, we all know that these people were just lazy and looking for an excuse to get out of doing their work. But, as they say, every cloud has a silver lining. I soon realized that I was an influencer. Who knew that having a panic attack in public could be so beneficial? I mean, sure, it was a little scary and overwhelming at the time, but now I had a whole group of people following in my footsteps. But, on a more serious note, there were also a few sweet angels who were there for me during that difficult time. They were the ones who truly cared and were willing to be there for me. I will forever be grateful for their support. In conclusion, if you're thinking about faking a panic attack to get out of class or assignments, just remember, you're not fooling anyone. And if you're going through a difficult time, don't be afraid to reach out for help. The right people will be there for you. Panic attacks are sudden and intense episodes of fear or anxiety that can be accompanied by physical symptoms such as sweating, palpitations, chest pain, and shortness of breath. They can come on suddenly and can last anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. Many people experience panic attacks as a result of an underlying mental health disorder such as generalized anxiety disorder or post-traumatic stress disorder. When someone is having a panic attack, it is important to remain calm and supportive. It is best to talk to them in a soothing, supportive tone, and remind them that they are not in any danger. It is also helpful to encourage them to focus on their breathing and to take slow, deep breaths. Panicking will only make the situation worse, so it is important to remain calm and supportive. It is important to remember that panic attacks are not a sign of weakness, and they can be serious. If someone is having recurrent panic attacks, it is best to seek professional help. A mental health professional can help to identify the underlying cause of the panic attacks and provide the necessary treatment to manage them. Treatment may include cognitive behavioral therapy, medications, or a combination of both. With proper treatment, panic attacks can be controlled and people can lead a normal, healthy life. Love, Aayushi Satam.

  • 5 Red Flags of Dating a Toxic Person

    Dating can be a *thrilling* adventure, but it can also be a minefield of *toxic* people. From commitment-phobes to drama kings and queens, it’s all too easy to find yourself in a relationship with someone who’s not the right fit. But don’t despair, there is hope! Here are a few tips to help you identify the red flags of dating a toxic person and keep your sanity in check. 1. Keep your eyes open for the “Drama Llama”: You know the type, always *stirring up drama* and creating unnecessary conflict. They thrive off of making you feel miserable and will always find a way to make something out of nothing. It's like living in a real-life episode of "The Office," minus the laughs. If you spot this llama, *run for the hills*! 2. Beware of the “Always Late”: Nothing says toxic like someone who can’t be on time. Whether it’s dinner, a movie or just a simple date, if your partner is *always late*, it’s a sign that they don’t respect you or your time. It's like they think they're Beyoncé and you're their *peon* - no one deserves to be treated that way! 3. Watch out for the “Commitment-phobe”: If your partner can’t seem to commit to anything, whether it’s plans for the weekend or a more serious commitment, it’s time to *reevaluate* your relationship. It's like they're stuck in "The Bachelor" and you're their contestant - you don't need that kind of drama in your life. 4. The “energy vampire”: We all know that person who can *suck the life* out of any room. If your partner seems to be constantly draining your energy and enthusiasm, it’s time to move on. It's like being in a bad vampire movie - you don't need that kind of psychological torture. 5. The “jealous type”: Jealousy is a normal emotion, but if your partner is constantly *questioning your whereabouts* and accusing you of cheating, it’s a sure sign that something toxic is going on. It's like they think they're Taylor Swift and you're their ex - no one wants to be in that kind of relationship. Dating can be a fun and *exciting* experience, but it’s important to be aware of the warning signs of a toxic relationship. If you’re ever in doubt, just remember: if it looks like a Llama, runs like a vampire and acts like a commitment-phobe, it’s probably *not the right person for you!* Love, Aayushi Satam.

  • Quitting Instagram: A Dark and Stormy Journey (Thanks Rory)

    It was a dark stormy night, moonlight illuminating the streets, when I decided to take the plunge and quit Instagram. And let me tell you, it was not an easy decision. But you see, my online friend Rory (he/him) had inspired me with his own decision to quit the platform. Now, you might be thinking, "But wait, Rory had the perfect Instagram feed. I mean, good lighting, perfect filters, really really aesthetic pictures. Why would he leave such a beautiful feed behind?" But no, Rory left Instagram, and let me tell you, I was secretly mad at him. Like, really mad. Because thanks to Rory, my ability to simp over Timothee Chalamet had been ruined. But I digress. Let's talk about the dark and stormy night in question. I was sitting in my bed, scrolling through my feed, feeling the weight of the world on my shoulders. The constant need to have the perfect aesthetic, the pressure to have the perfect life, it was all too much. And then I thought of Rory. He had quit Instagram and he was still surviving. So, with a heavy heart and a sense of dread, I hit that "delete account" button. And let me tell you, the first few days were rough. I felt like a part of me was missing. I found myself reaching for my phone, only to realize that I couldn't just scroll through my feed to pass the time. But as the days went on, I started to realize that life was happening all around me, and I didn't need Instagram to be a part of it. But don't get me wrong, there were moments of weakness. I would find myself stalking my old friends and scrolling through my old posts, longing for the good old days. But then I would remind myself of the dark and stormy night, and the weight of the world that had been lifted from my shoulders. So, to all of you out there considering quitting Instagram, I say go for it. It may be a dark and stormy road, but trust me, the weight of the world will be lifted from your shoulders. And as for Rory, well, he may have ruined Timothee Chalamet for me, and his perfect Instagram feed, but he also gave me the gift of freedom. So, I guess I'll forgive him. Love, Aayushi Satam.

Just you, your laptop, and the sweet smell of money. That's right, you can make money from the comfort of your own home. So sit back, put on your comfiest PJs, and get ready to learn the top five ways to make money from home. 1. Start a Drop-Shipping Biz What is it? Drop-shipping is when an e-comm store be like "nah, I ain't got time for stocking" and sells a product without actually stocking the item itself. Instead, when a customer orders a product, the store be like "nah, I ain't got time for this either" and buys it from a third party and has it shipped directly to the customer. How it works: You find a supplier, create a website, and market and promote the products on your site. Every time someone orders something, you buy it from the supplier and be like "yeah, yeah, I got this" and have it shipped to the customer. Biz owners get paid a profit once they sell the item, minus the cost of the product, shipping, and any other fees associated with the sale. Example: Let's say you start a drop-shipping biz selling coffee mugs. You find a supplier that's willing to sell you the mugs for $10 each. You create a website and list the mugs for $15 each.
