I don't want to be anything other then what I've been trying to be lately..

A big hello to all the followers who are reading this line in the post summary on their dashboards!
I've been neglecting my blog like crazy or maybe never found the right things to write! Every time I'd sit up staring at the blank screen and wondering what to write or rant about. A part of me blames twitter for being an immediate outlet for all the things I'd want to throw at the world. 

Guess it's true what they say about mad and tortured artists. I've walking around like a zombie. Design schools can get crazy and suck the life out of you..unless you realize that you life is the life you got after your social life got sucked away..*or something like that*
Honestly, I've started finding happiness in my sketches, paintings, classroom sessions, critiques , being sleepless but kicking off a project well, sleeping around in class etc. I feel a sense of independence here. My art defines me. It helps me be myself and it won't judge me. It helps me enter my own parallel universe. When I'm at work, nothing else matters. Not an ongoing fight with a friend, not a bad hair day, not a stupid comment someone passed, not a dick head friend..just nothing. It's like being drenched in rain and feeling every droplet that's hitting your face. Feels amazingly beautiful! And oh, I've been maintaining a mood book. Whatever mood I am in, whatever I feel, I sketch it out. It's a personal book full of contrasting sketches! Like my personal visual diary. I know I'll be looking at it a few years from now and giggling. 
And yes..friends! New friends. Tons of them! My house mates are from different states so it's like mini India! 
I've learned a lot about friendship in these four months that I've been away from home.
When I left Bombay, I had about thirty different people contacting me and wishing me luck with a promise of keeping in touch,always. Well guess what? DOESN'T HAPPEN. They miss you for a day or two and get busy with their own lives. But then there are a few, who bother to know what's happening every day. In spite of being far away, they help you through a lot of things. If my best friend is reading this, then a big thank you is all I have to say! :) .. Now about the friends I made here.. everyone understands how it is to be away, lose touch and move ahead! I'm making new friends every day! I love how people trust me. I feel happy when someone randomly comes and shares things, trusts me over it and ask for help! I've learned a lot about acceptance too. You have to learn to accept people for who they are! You gotta know that you have flaws too but that shouldn't be the reason for someone else to love you less. Apply that before hating or judging someone!

I'm madly in love with One Tree Hill! *NATHANSCOTTMAKESMEDROOOOOL*
(Hence the post title! It's OTH's title track!!)
OTH makes me feel weirdly connected to it. I feel for the characters and feel like I'm a part of their lives. I cry, laugh, sob, dance with them!! There are so many stories of failure, hope, heartbreaks, friendship..a every point of time there will be at least one character that you can relate to! Throughout. 

Recent addictions: Film making, Photography, Sketching, Oreo Milkshake, OTH.

PS. I miss home food.
PPS. Home in 14 days! Breakkk :D

  1. July to October, no post. How many times did your head explode? (citing your profile)

    1. Many a times. But I just couldn't get myself to blog. I wrote in my diary instead :)

  2. I just stumbled upon your blog,appreciating your header image (quite inspiring)and the title. 'Scribbling Life' is simple yet profound in terms of a writer's perspective.

    I have read your post and hopefully will read some older posts. But I tell you, you must like your critics :D

    And please do write, we don't want a news of explosion of a head just because of absence of some letters from her life...

    1. Haha thank you so much!
      It's been quite a while since I wrote.

  3. Love your name. So.. awesome.
    You're at uni now?
