This post was written on Jan 12, 2020 while basking in the sun outside the halls of World Book Fair 2020.
I have come here after two years. I guess. Because I remember not coming last year; I didn’t have time because of my exhausting internship.
I usually ask someone to tag along with me, because I really don’t understand how to roam around all by myself. I usually feel the need of having some company when going out in public. What if I get bored?
I remember the only time I went out alone was to watch a movie. That was 3-4 years back. Though I don’t remember which movie it was. Since the theatre was dark and I just had to focus on the movie, there was no issue of getting bored. I didn’t have to face people.
This time, I thought I should go alone. Be by myself. Had been thinking about it since a week. But I was not sure. I let the thought be. I knew if I over thought about it, I would end up spending my Sunday at home again, doing nothing.
All this week, I was feeling exhausted emotionally. I needed a break. Had been waiting for my weekend to start. Last night, when my mother asked what do I want for breakfast and lunch for Sunday, I told her I’ll be going to the Book Fair. I didn’t feel like pressurising myself about waking up early in the morning and reaching on time. Though I ended up waking up early, maybe because there was a lil stress to go alone. I thought I can just skip it.
But I knew if I skip it, I’ll be getting a chance to go again only next year. All those stories on Instagram about my acauiantces buying books from here, they gave me a lil push.
I somehow managed to get ready in time. Yes, I was forcing myself a lil bit about the time, so that I could return before it starts getting cold outside.
