After years and years of procrastination, I finally have a blog. For someone who has been writing ever since her chubby, little fingers could grip a pencil, this is a momentous occasion. YAY!
My name is Zasha O’Brien, and I am a 21 year old girl, although I don’t often act like an adult. I grew up in Calcutta (Kolkata?), India, a city known for awful politics and awesome food (more on both later), before moving to the nation’s capital, New Delhi, to study political science and how-to-be-independent. I love dogs and black coffee and white wine and most things that are edible and bookshops and petrichor and being organized and Oxford commas and my iPad and the beach and lazy weekends spent cuddling in bed and watching animated movies. I do not like being active and green vegetables and being told what to do and misogynists. I do not understand the stock market and frappuccinos.
A friend of mine insisted that I decide what my blog would focus on. I can’t. So if anyone is reading this, they will probably find a number of blog posts, some short and some the length of a novel, some upbeat and some morose (mostly upbeat; I’m a happy kid), some about the meaning of life and other deep things and some about that bee-yoo-ti-ful dish that you should order at that new place on that dark street in that posh area.
So, hey. Welcome to cerealforlunch. Thank you for reading – I love you already!
