Hola! I’m Monica Shivakumar. I’m only 24 yrs young and from Bengaluru. I’m the laziest person you will ever meet! Oh, also the most lost soul ever, as lost as Bo Peep’s sheep!
YOU DO YOU & HOW!
When I think “Happy”, I think
Food, Pluto(aunt’s pet) & shopping
myhoogah.. in 3 words
Food, Food & Food
My gratitude jar thanks
Coz happiness is… childhood memories
My Grandmother’s house
My warm fuzzy, food memory
Thank you, my speed dial peeps!
Nivikins, Vaishuchinzz & Teenu mole
Thank you, for this unforgettable act of kindness!
I was travelling back in a fully booked train – from Davangere to Bengaluru. It was a 6 hour journey. I was looking around for a spot to sit. A very kind gentleman came over and offered me his seat. Will never forget that act of kindness. Thank you 🙂
Happiest when doing this with my fam!

Believe in yourself
I’m quirky & I love it
My laugh is funnier than the joke
My simple joys..
Nature walks, dancing & travelling
An all-time guilty pleasure
Eating Horlicks mixed with water
When I feel low..
Listen to music and dance along
I’ve got only 10 years to live. How will I live it?
I would eat and travel like there’s no tomorrow
If my life was a book, it’d be called
Mo the sloth
I’m learning something new
Baking and cooking
The most spontaneous me, so far!
Sketching and painting
Dear 15-year-old self..
Enjoy school life to the fullest
Dear 60-year-old self..
Wow, you made it to 60!!!

FINDING HOOGAH DURING COVID
The biggest lesson I learnt
Life is too uncertain. Make every day count
An unexpected happy lockdown outcome
Binge watching shows
Found it tough to deal with
To have peace of mind and not being able to visit my Aunt’s home
A new lockdown skill
During lockdown, I find my pockets of hoogah
Baking, decluttering, watching series, and video calling family and friends
Let’s beat Covid together!
Stay safe and calm. Appreciate the small things life has to offer. The storm does not last forever and as cliche as it sounds, this too shall pass, because it will and it has to. There is enough chaos around us, which is unfathomable. Be kind. Be human. Mental health also matters just as much as physical matters. Reach out. Stay positive. We are in this together.
