I’ve been watching this YouTube channel called Grackle, which is a channel by a 21-year-old bakery student called Grace Booth.

A few weeks ago, I woke up from a dream with the words ‘The End is Nigh.’ I take little to no interest in anything apocalypse. Existential dreams are passé. I have no time to think of the end of time. Little me left, to think of the end of me. Without being depressingly prophetic or wishful about it.

I hope you’ve had a great September. I hope you have exciting things to look forward to in October. It’s festive season here in India, and there are exciting things to look forward to, whether you feel excited enough for them or not.
