welcome to my monthly wrap up post where i look back and reflect on the shenanigans of life! i would love to hear what you got up to in april too so do stop by in the comments!
moments i’m proud of:
- been posting piano covers quite consistently and had a few features on people’s stories/feed and that was like an awh wow moment, very touching and so sweet of you if you did that!
- had my poem on ptsd featured on a mental health instagram page. out of all the pages i have come across, i think this one is special because it feels welcoming and focusses on aiding you with information and that human to human interaction that makes one feel less alone
- been tinkering around in the kitchen helping making meals (tamil ones hehe)
- passed my audit and assurance exam
- been super productive at work
- did my first ever q&a on this blog!
- not studied at all – and i know, i know, why should kiya be proud of this…but it’s the first breather i’ve taken from constantly having my nose in some kind of academic book and not feeling guilty about it! btw, i’m going to resume studying on saturday!
- did some gardening by which i mean i planted some chillis and tomatoes!
and mowed the lawn and made it into a competition with my bro
books i read:
and i oops…again, did not read a book. but i watched a lot of tv ish…
things i watched:
i’ve got through all four parts, and oh my god, this show is just mind blowing. i love it to bits – it has me hooked, curious, and the plot and characters are so intriguing and complex. if anyone else has watched it/is watching it, hit me up for fangirling session! I CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF THIS SHOW!
watched season one and i’m so glad season two comes out next friday! not long to wait on a cliff hanger.
what can i say – i loved watching this retelling of sleeping beauty with an alternative ending. loved the transforming dude into different animals at the call of Maleficent, and how her heart thawed as she essentially became the young girl’s guardian angel. and the little squabbles the three fairies entrusted to look after the girl got caught up in made me smile.
so, i’ve been meaning to get back into watching more tamil films. whilst browsing netflix i saw this, and recently a friend had seen it and told me about it. so i automatically hit play and oh my god, this movie is awesome! so many plot twists you never see coming and the characters are so quirky. definitely made me laugh throughout. it’s a crime based plot line mixed with deceit and romance.
follows the battle for power between criminals, corrupt politicans and the police force. a lot of mind games occur throughout the plot with many oof plot twists. the background music issa vibe!
an amalgamation of four different love stories from different backgrounds which all result in the same lesson being learned. not the typical romance ish.
asurakuru – the main character, shakti, becomes money obssessed due to a trauma spited reason. this results in him becoming a tech-savvy thief who can’t control his urges. however, after being picked up by the cops, and realising the corruption present within the police force, he changes his ways to exploit the criminals who hide behind a police badge.
kanna – follows the pursuit of a farmer’s daughter to becoming a cricketer and winning the world cup for her nation. along her journey, she faces a lot of hardships.
sarkar – a political action movie where the plot revolves around the corruption that surrounds election voting in india. it all starts when a businessman who travels from the usa to vote, discovers someone else has managed to vote in his name. this begins to unravel how politicians pay people to cast votes in favour of them using others’ identities.
mersal – a plotline that exposes the corruption in the medical industry within india, whilst a doctor and a magician try to solve the threat to the public from the lack of an adequate healthcare system

a post i read this month that i adored:
so this girl has finally decided to share her writing wonders with the world, and it’d mean a lot if you all have a little browse and shower her with support. she’s a deep thinker with warming but also heart wrenching poetry or snippets of thoughts.
