Cherry On Top

It is quite rare for me to livestream when I am drawing or doodling. However, not long ago, I was in a Skype call with one of my friends from abroad, happily conversing about our lives and futures, throwing jokes at each other, and listening to music, when I started working on a rose. In the beginning, there was nothing but a huge red spot on the white virtual paper, but I have decided to show it to my friend either way. She laughed at me, thinking I was joking, so I proposed a show and talk sort of Skype call.

After a while, when my rose got some shadows and lightnings on, my friend dared me to draw a rat. Naturally, I took the challenge, and left the flower I was working on, incomplete.  Continue reading “Cherry On Top”

Panic in the Bus!

Whenever I am heading home, there is a funny feeling in my stomach, a fear that I might lose the bus, or that I would embark on the wrong one, and then I would end up in another city, with not enough money on me, and no place to stay at (in case there is not enough time to return, of course). Obviously, this works the other way round too. I am actually more worried when I have to return to the city, than when I am heading home.

I remember how once, while I was a freshman in the BA program, there was just one more day before my winter break ended, and I had to leave home and head for the city again. Dad drove me to the bus stop, in a nearby city, so that I wouldn’t need to take the forever-awfully-crowded-bus that went through the village, then change and take another one that would head to City #2, where Continue reading “Panic in the Bus!”

My Easter Break in a Nutshell

Despite all of the assignments and other projects I was required to prepare for after the holidays, I have packed all my things in a hurry on a Wednesday night, ready to go back home and spend a well deserved week relaxing and having fun. After all, Easter was coming and everyone would be home, celebrating.

My entire family could hardly wait to see me again. Especially my grandparents who haven’t seen me ever since the winter break. My siblings were also eager for my return. They have all expected me to go home earlier, since Thursday was practically off, and on Wednesday I had no more classes. However, Continue reading “My Easter Break in a Nutshell”

Mischief Managed

A week ago, I returned home. Today, I came back to the city. The badly needed holiday ended. It is time for all of us, the people who were lucky enough to get a one-week break from college, to get back to work.

Even though some of us (ahem!) have already spent time studying during the last half of the said week.

However, despite all the studying that me and my siblings did, there were also other fun activities that we engaged in. But that is going to be a whole different post. This one will actually be dedicated to my selfishness and how Continue reading “Mischief Managed”
