Thank you, Delhi University

And it’s done.

3 years. It’s been 3 years since I became a part of this ridiculously awesome world, and it’s been one hell of a ride. These three years have seen me grow, learn to love myself, love others, be comfortable with change, be comfortable with new people and embrace experiences. Continue reading

What are you up to this winter break? Comment!
