Have to vent. 

My post for today is called Momentary. Why? Because I had to back out from my art project. Oh, and also the Billabong thing didn't work out. It is worse when they accept you and then randomly reject you. So few days back I was happy, thinking that finally after years and years my career path is settling, but nope..these two important things just went away. Letting go of the art project was my choice as the type of art I have wasn't matching with the intent of the project. Of course I am disappointed. 

Plus it really doesn't help that final exams are in four days and I am stuck in a massive pool of mindless theory. 

So now I guess instead of being low I should just let it go and accept it. More schools will come, and hopefully my art too shall move up soon. Have to keep faith and believe. It's timing and fate to some extent too. Anything can change before you even realize it. Nothing is ever final, nothing settles. I was ranting about it to K, telling him that finally I felt that professionally things are probably settling and then wooooosh! the winds of change came along. So he told me that why do you want something to settle. "Dust settles, and don't be Dust". Guess its correct. We all look for "settling". But life is always changing, it never stops. So how can we settle? 

The silver lining is that probably something better should come up. No harm in wishful thinking right?

Should get back to my mindless theory.

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Because Mommy hates my eyebrows......

I hate this weather. It's all wet and weird. I am so surprised at myself for nearly finishing my commissions for September. Alongside I even managed to watch two movies. I had decided to watch them only on the completion of my work as a "treat", but well I just cannot say no to a movie night with K. Actually I cannot say no to anyone when it comes to watching a movie. So I ended up watching Freaky Ali which sucked. And Pink which did not suck at all. What a movie!

I called the "Mother" to discuss Pink and the seriousness it showcased about the way women are judged in the Indian society. After ranting for a couple of minutes about how we are perceived and shackled with responsibilities and judgements, she replies -
 "Have you done your eyebrows?"

Now my eyebrows are currently a crisis for my Mother. The fact that her daughter has disregarded the importance of physical maintenance is shocking for her. Since I have been piled this month with maddening w…

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
