Appeal to design students…

Well….I must do this!!!

I know its just my second post…and i don’t want to sound all grumpy and whiny…I’m not like that,only few times.But i need to do this.

Ok…so I’m letting this out in public today…i had a professor in my college that i HATED…i loathed her with all my heart…there are only 2 people in the world that i can truly hate..and my genius professor is one of them.I know,that professors are supposed to be respectful personalities,and their aim should nothing be more than giving everything to their students…imparting knowledge!And i  respect all such people…my dad is a professor and i totally respect his dedication to his college…but this particular lady that I’m talking about….does not do even half of her job.She keeps roaming around in college bullying the 1st Year students and strutting her stuff.She is never in her lectures,and sleeping in other’s lectures.She really just comes in for easy money.And does not give a damn about students.She took instant DISliking to me….and it really bothered me.She just kept bitching about me in the staff room and even before i knew it,i was in every professor’s  bad books.Of course some knew better.But she ensured to make my life in college living hell.It always bothers me a hell lot when someone does not like me,or rather dislikes me….and this lady made me miserable…really really miserable.The thing with design schools is that all your academic marking,your entire year is in your professor’s hand…and they sure know how to make a puppet out of you.This one definitely did!She…yes i have been wanting to say this…the bitch screwed up my life for 4 yrs!!!Of course in my 4th year,i gave her a bit of attitude that she thought i was so full of….and i really don’t care she didn’t give my design enough marks…even in the final year…it doesn’t bother me now though.And it doesn’t really matter.Today i know i can get a job where i want,and my portfolio speaks for itself.But i needed to get it out of my system.

the problem with bully teachers needs more attention (image taken from internet)

I’m sure you all must have been through similar situations.Some more grave than mine.Teachers bullying students is an issue across the globe,and i think we all need to fight it.Esp. in design schools.We need to stand by our design principles,something that we believe will work,and not just stick to age old believes,and adopt the tried and tested principles.

So here’s an appeal to all design students to not to give up in what they believe in….fight till the end.Get some reality checks once a while,look out for help in times of self doubt,there is at least one person who believes in you,look at nature for inspiration…but don’t play safe..keep the designer in you alive!!!

Hello world!(yes,i didn’t change the name)

Well…yes!

This is my first post,not my first blog though! why I trashed my first blog is a completely different story,but I do  stuff like that often…you can say,im moody!

But don’t start making assumptions about me just yet,don’t judge me yet.Because if you do,I will just prove as a surprise to you…well,most of the times!

So…some things about me that you should know:

I’m a self-proclaimed artist, but really a designer.

I love discovering art in the simplest everyday objects.

I strongly believe in ‘beauty lies in beholders eyes’.

I like to think of myself as a global person…somehow I feel I have been blessed with great understanding capabilities,so I think I can befriend any human being on this earth.

People around me think I’m a great thinker, a philosopher sorts and a very quiet person…well I’m just shy! you get to know me better,and my silence just dissolves!!!

I believe there’s a difference between bitching and gossiping…I do gossip sometimes(yes,i’m female,but males gossip too…more on that later,someday!)

I practice day dreaming! (I don’t know where I lost humor in this sentence….it sounded funny in my mind)

Yes, I often talk to myself (like this)…but hey I’m not a loner,my friends are my life!

I have fallen in and out of love a couple of times…and right now,i don’t know which stage I’m in…falling in or falling out.

I’m 24,and breaking the rule that women lie about their age…its not a lie.I’m really 24!

Hey…you aren’t hoping I’d let myself in on the first post itself,are you???

This is it then…In my blog,I really don’t know what I am going to write about…what topics I will cover,will I share my personal life or not..I’m not sure yet. But I needed a place to pour out my thoughts.The practical world that we live in often forces you to grow up,to be sane…but i needed to be true to my self..I’m a bit crazy,and quirky!!! I needed to preserve it..conserve the other side of me…the quirky me!

So,hello world…keep visiting!
