Doodling Away…

I have been having a lot of free time,which means an increased doodling time…

Nature and music always provide me with ample of inspiration…

Tree of Life...or something

Missed out friends…

Yes,it is the F-day today…celebration of the most purest form of love,friendship. I have been blessed in this form of relationship.I have been blessed with the most amazing friends…in school,college and elsewhere.But there’s always someone in your life you would had hoped to befriend…and which did not happen. Today I’m going to tell you about one such person.When I was in first year,I remember the first senior who talked to me..and yes,such a cliché…the senior was a guy! I was sitting in the lobby with one of my friend,and he came down the stairs…looking at us,and squeaked,not in the annoying manner,but with bewilderment…twins!!!Are you twins?? We weren’t,but everyone from fourth year called us twins since then.Yes,he was in his fourth year.And we used to bump in to each other all the time.Our college was a small place…I mean literally,just two floors in a building. But it was not until the fresher’s party that I got really fascinated by him…he played the guitar!!!!For me,that is just something completely admirable.And he knew his stuff…you could see the joy on his face when he ruffled his six string….and I adored him that instant!!

Now,back then,I was this extremely socially awkward person…very shy,and he was extremely flamboyant.So when he started hitting on me,I didn’t know how to react…I didn’t wanted to be romantically(or whatever) involved with him,but have long length conversations with,learn about his interests,and his ideologies,about design,music and life! Now this ‘twin’ friend of mine had a huge crush on him.But whenever he used to come and talk to our group,he used to flirt with me…and this friend used to growl at me.So what I did was,I started avoiding him,dropping him hints that I’m totally oblivious to him…which of course I wasn’t and I know that was a totally stupid thing to do..but my friends always come before anything else.They both became great friends,and even went out for some time,i think!

Anyhow…the point is,i missed out on what could have been a great friendship.He was(is) this totally cool,charming, severely talented musical guy.He could have added depth to my thoughts and my understanding of music,and life…but I guess i missed out on that.

I’m sure everyone must feel the same way about some person they crossed paths with.Does this post remind you of someone?

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!

a hope to remain the way i was born…
