I was tagged by Srijal to write this post.
“You can’t really know what it is to want things until you are at least 30.” This quote from Mistress America was delivered in a very casual conversation in the movie, but it send me a chill in my spine ( Ok, Just being little dramatic here). Though I am couple of years off 30 but I believe that my soul has already crossed 30. I could relate with the anxiety, excitement and the predictable failure of the character. My problem in the movie is that not only I found myself relate-able to the 30 year old character, Brooke, but also with the 18 year old Tracy.
Tracy is upset that she is not yet selected for her college’s prestigious Literary Society until she finds her muse in her soon-to-be step sister Brooke. Don’t worry, I am not giving away too much of the movie, as this movie’s beauty is not only it’s plot but also it’s brilliant writing.
Coming back to things I want to- ” I want to take my blog to next level.” Not to a level that will make me very rich because there is really no money in blogging. I want to create something that I am proud of- I want my blog to echo my personality but at the same time, I also want my blog to allow me to be someone else for sometime. I want my blog to be intelligent but at the same time I want it to be full of dump jokes as well. I want my blog to be both a 30 year old and a 18 year old at the same time. – Am I asking too much ?
But the problem is that I have recently moved to a new city and my job is more demanding than ever. My life is evolving, I am more insecure about my short-comings, I am out of my usual comfort zone. Also at the same time I am proud of where I am in my life and I feel this is the time to run to the another base. I know someday when I am lazily sitting and doing a television marathon on Sunday, this post will come back and haunt me.
I now tag Divyakshi to write her take on the topic.

P.S: I highly recommend this movie. It has my favorite women characters and has a very Woody Allenish touch. Also by the same team, is Frances Ha, another amazing piece of writing and acting.
