For the past few days, it seems like nothing has been going even remotely right. Work or otherwise. While sharing some of my thoughts with my friend, I learnt something very helpful and it's probably going to seem all philosophical, but I've got to share it. Basically, I was being my overdramatic self and going on and on about how horrible things are getting and how for all I know, by the time things can better, I could've croaked (I was referring to the unpredictability of life). He said, "In that case you need to find something that can make you happy now,this very instant, so if you do die in the next minute you'll die happy". That's when something clicked. I didn't see it that way at all and when I got a different perspective, things seemed a lot more effortless. Sharing opened up a new door that I would normally never even know existed. Thanks Jason!
I did this NLP(Neuro-Linguistic Programming) course. For those of you who think this is Greek, it's actually a study of the sub-conscious mind. In itself it's an awesome course. Richard Bandler and John Grinder together, founded this field of study. It needs an awful lot of practice and concentration. In fact one of their theories that has been proven is that when you're sick, you need to listen to your body and what it wants to tell you. Then you need to do what your body wants you to do and then you feel better. Another way of getting rid of your illness is to picture what color your cough or cold or fever or whatever looks like. (For me my sore throat looks green in my head) Then, you concentrate on that color and change the color in your head and you shift the way your throat feels. I'm going to go clear my head and shift the way I feel.
My observation of a female in a long-term relationship. Ok, it's my friend and I did not intend to generalize, but I'm on the guy's side on this one. Mostly because I'm like him. Messy, unorganized and my room looks like a tornado visits it every day.
Since I suck at drawing and since my brain tends to get wonky when I'm sick, I'm churning out more and more of these random illustrations. Anybody would get upset if I constantly kept drawing them.. With arms wide open, under the sunlight.. Welcome to this place, I'll show you everything.. Aaah there I go again..
I posted her 'cause I think she's pretty. Also you guys can guess what she's hiding behind her back. I don't know myself. I'm going to guess medicine as I'm delirious. Too much sneezing and a terrible throat ache sums up how I'm feeling right now. It also explains how much my mind wanders when I'm ill, making me draw ridiculous things.
This is another Rob Turnbull strip. Those who know him will know that he talks exactly the way I've shown him talk above. It's the way he conveys his annoyance, his love, his impatience and every other emotion. Very few people understand him though.
I love rainy weather and everything about it. The smell of the earth when the first drops of rain fall, the cloudy skies that somehow manage to make the entire world look fresh and green. It's perfect. You can sit on a couch cuddle up with a good book or a movie and get some hot cocoa to sip on and your set. Or you can just let go. take off your shoes and enjoy the rain. There's something about rain that soothes my soul. No matter how mad, angry, anxious or sad I am rain just makes me happy. While I was writing this I was pretty annoyed about a whole bunch of stuff, I realized that just writing about it comforts me. And this strip cracks me up.
I started off this morning with some random drawings. I was trying to draw a mean, crude Pirate and the operative word here is 'trying'. As you can see I failed miserably. It looks more like a Vietnamese war veteran turned farmer. Ahh I try. Being sick for the past two days has definitely not helped. Let me see what else I can dish out today.
In conclusion I'm hanging out for a bit in my own world, while everyone struggles with their Monday morning issues. Ha good luck to them. No offense and not that I wont be responsible or work or anything. I'll just take a mental vacay for a while. You know, get my groove back on, so that I can rock the rest of the week at work.
To counter the effects of my Monday morning this is what I drew. :) The girl who is ready to kick ass is my best friend Sneha more like "My person"and the other chick who is running after the guy is my other good friend Martina. That's just how she is. Anyway I love you guys. Thanks for having my back all the time, listening to my crap and constant non-stop chatter. Mwaaahhh xoxoxo
I keep sacrificing my sleep to doodle and every morning I wake up looking like a freaking zombie. I've got to stop doing that except it's so hard not to doodle. It's my favorite thing to do. I even lose track of my actual real working on campaigns and writing for print ads etc... No wonder I get yelled at by my boss. Hmmm looks like I just cant learn my lesson. But nevertheless, the doodles wont stop. :)
It's inspired by this insane game that I play on facebook. Oh, if it isn't clear he's mafia by the way.That's the game I play. At one point of time I'd played the game for three days straight, no sleep and barely any food either. I met a ton of interesting people and made some great friends. The list is huge but I really love you guys. You all are the best..Kim, Brigitte, Kenin, Shaun, Petar, Kat, Amruth, Chris, Sand, Jimmy, Stevie, ACP, Loz, Kati, Fran, Star, Nikky, Ray Ray, Sarah, Jonathan, Xarey, Amy, Adeline, Daniel, Abraar, Cedric, Tolga, Johan, Speed, Hayley, Natacha, Naty, Burak, Milda, Kazza, Mya, Sean, Jessie, Rob, Shari, RSJ, Laura, Mongar, Emily, Eve, Kris, Michel, Nicole, Derek, Sam Tay, Arnaud, Andrew, Clare, Wes, Christian, Lisa, Suze, Jack, Katie, Jason, Erin, Mari, Phila, Chelsey, Samii, Devi, Taz, Flo.. k you get the point, the list is really really long :) Mwwwaaaahhh xoxoxoxo
This is a small strip about my darling little sister. She seriously wouldn't notice Tom Cruise if he was standing in front of her and went down on one knee. She's a dog lover. One of the craziest I've ever seen actually. I'm a dog lover too but I love with a lot less intensity. I also for some random reason love others dogs more than my own loony dog.
As a Copywriter, I'm constantly working on making sure that I grow, it isn't as easy as I thought it would be but I'm loving it, every single moment. I've been in the advertising business for six months now and have learned a lot. I know I can never stop learning and that truly the sky's the limit. I prefer " To infinity and beyond" after one of my favorite animated movies.Cheers.
So, as my first post as a blogger, I'm just exploring and seeing what I can put up and stuff. I must say that my inspiration for starting my own blog came from two blogs that I love and follow religiously. All I think I'm going to be doing is posting a whole bunch of nonsensical crap. :P
