Updates!


Hi people who I hope still read my blog.

Look at me, coming after a month after announcing I'm going to be doing NaPoWriMo. It turned out, I couldn't do it. It was due to part laziness, part busy schedule. I had my exams, other writings, and internships. I really shouldn't be giving excuses, I broke a tradition of three years! Ah.

I thought I'll leave an update of sorts. And(hopefully)
not take another hiatus. 

What have I been doing lately?

I currently started my internship at this awesome newspaper house. I've been wanting to intern here for some years now, so this is a happy felling XD
 Today is World Laughter Day, by the way. So, laugh out all you can.

I've been reading a lot (need to start striking out books in of the reading challenge) April has been a month of great books! I discovered Pandora by Jilly Cooper, Michael Crichton, Kiss of Deception(this really nice book), Ruskin Bond.

I've lately been seized by an overwhelming urge to paint. Though every time I take out my drawing book I cannot go further than a few lines. Meh.

Hopefully May is more productive. And I start making my usual kind of blog posts.

Until then :P

Sunday Soul Santhe



It’s been a while since I last blogged. College has kept me busy and I still feel like I’m not being productive enough!
On March 8 (International Women’s Day) I took a little trip to check out this thing called Sunday Soul Santhe(carnival). This happens every month in my city and I’d heard so much about it. I finally decided to go. What should have been a two-hour journey became a five-hour tiring and costly adventure. Before I show you all the pretty pictures of the Santhe, let me tell you something

       
       >Don’t trust Google maps.

        >Don’t trust Google maps.

        >Don’t depend on the people who seem overly helpful.
       
       >When you are asking someone for the address, spell out the word because some are semi-deaf.


 So, Soul Santhe- A magical mélange of arts and craft. 
It's a platform to promote art, craft, food and music. Anything creative, you can find here. 
















I hope that wasn't a overload of pictures! 

How did you spend Women's Day?

#28: Photo a Day Month!

So, last day of photo a day month! It has been exceptionally rewarding not only doing it but also hosting the site. I got to take pictures I wouldn't have otherwise thought of or saw things my eyes would have missed if I wasn't constantly looking for subjects. It has been fun <3

I started with colors, wanted to end it with that!


The prompt was Big&Small. Glad I found this!
