Letter (001)

Dear Y

I always loved the idea of having a pen friend but it never worked out. So here I’m writing things I want to tell you and for convenience you will be called Y. You can reply to me by pressing the contact button above.

So for past few days I felt extremely low… yes it was that time of the month too. I was so miserable that I was about to delete my Instagram account. I had to tell myself to hold on for a week and if I feel the same we’ll think about it and I listened to myself. 

I know people don’t prefer showing their real, maybe sad things on social media. I don’t want to do that anymore…

Every time someone messages me, Oh you are so cute and full of energy… I love your life… I think to myself am I always cute and happy? My friends and family might differ… I can be as mean as Ursula and as dull as Droopy dog but they still manage to exist around me…

I was thinking I’ll share my thoughts and other fluffs here coz I know a lot of people hate reading, me being one of them. So I was thinking, that the 5 people who are reading this and are interested in being my pen friend, can write back to me… what say? 

Anyway think about it and let me know…

Hope you have a wonderful 2019.

Let me know how you are spending your New Year… I might be just keeping myself warm under the blanket and watching something on the Netflix.

Lots of love



  1. Bursting out your feelings through the art of writing is one of the most pristine habit. I always love to read blogs too. The words just enter to your own self and give you inspiration at times.

  2. Keep writing. I ll read no matter what kind of crap you write ♥️
    This new years the plan is to stay home have dinner with family and get wasted till we all pass out!

  3. Hi Archie!

    Would love to be your pen friend!

    Look forward to hearing back from you..

    Btw will it involve actually handwriting, sealed envelopes and stamps… ❤️

    Eagerly waiting,

  4. That was a pretty good letter … so my 2018 took my life to a new phase … yes I got married .. and still wondering or figuring out what is happening around me .. confused 🤷‍♀️ … 9 month just went like a rajdhani express thinking about wat to do and wat not to do … my life started revolving around one person and yaaa I love him so much 😍… Okie so that’s it the major change in my life …. new year plan is spending the eve with my whole family … hope this year brings more happiness and less confusion 😂🤪🥰

  5. Hey Archie

    This might sound a bit odd. But yes it’s the same kind of thing that was happening around with me. I felt as if its end of the world. I felt like deleting all social accounts. I felt like I should get rid of the phone.. And much more I just don’t have words to share. I was feeling that bad. I have a kid who is 5 years old and I kinda felt like I was going to die soon and I poured my heart out to her. But I am not dead and am alive. And that came as a surprise to me. Life at times can be at surprising and annoying at the same time. It puts us through so much.

    Well, I always wanted a pen friend to share my thoughts, during my school days. And I guess this idea came from some English chapter which I don’t remember. Anyways that thing was unfinished business. And I am glad I can write to someone at least now. Well am an 89 born kid and bought up in Kannur, Kerala. Got married and currently in UAE.

    Well about the new year. Not much clue let’s wait and see what new year holds for us. Hope to hear from you soon.

    Loads of love and a happy new year.


  6. Hi Archana,

    I too am feeling a little low for the past few weeks. I feel for yeah!!! It was assuring to see that a person like you could also feel so.

    So many dreams just parked aside…and I wonder what is stopping me from doing anything about it.

    I got a little inspired reading Sheryl Sandberg s book called Lean In. I finished the book and felt refreshed for about a day…and then boofff!! Probably if I write a summary of the points in the book – maybe….I can start putting it to practice then? Yawwwwwn..

    I’ve also ordered Michelle Obama’s Becoming. I wonder if all this reading is actually going to help.

  7. This idea is maybe like sharing/exchanging your dear diary with a good friend .. I loved the idea and will love to read more from you ..keep writing Archie 🌼💚
    And this new year I will be making small greeting cards for few of my friends and secretly keep it between their books and have some pastries and study till my eyes got swollen because thats the only option left for me..😂😂
    Happy 2019😘

  8. Yes. I would love to. I really love reading blogs. This new year also will pass on like every other New year, manipulating resolutions in all way possible and also staying up till 12:00 and watching the Christmas Father being burnt down in Fort Kochi. (Just Kochi things 😜)

  9. Hey .. i would like to be ur pen friend😇😇 nd this new year will pass on as usual with phn in one hand nd staying but still 12 to watch santa burning down in fort kochi…
    Nd wishing everyone happy new year.. 😂😂🤗
    Hope u have a prosperous year ahead..❤️

  10. Neither can I see the contact button. !

    I met a family in train when I was in 4th or 5th on my way to Bombay from Ernakulam with my family. I had their address and wrote a letter. But unfortunately never got a reply. I had this major idea of pen friend but it did never work out. Hope to have it atleast now, after looooong years ! ( PS: I’m 26yrs old now 😉 !

  11. I can totally relate to you. It’s been really tough for me these days and I pretty much was taking a break from instagram too. And yes, I would love to be your pen friend if it’s okay with you. You won’t believe it, but I have this another page on Instagram where I share my not so happy side too.
    And people always tells me to share whatever I feel if it’s anything at all. I’m telling you this because I experienced it even though I’m really young. Hope you won’t get offended by this. It’s just what I experienced and I wanted to share with you.
