X for a lot of stuff from X

Wow. X is one difficult letter. I have been racking my brains since morning on what to write about. I have no set theme for this post, so I shall just babble on about stuff from X. What to do! It is such a difficult letter!
X for xeroxes. My complete college years went smoothly, thanks to the xerox machine. I never really enjoyed going to college. Not like it was bad, or I did not enjoy. But just getting up from my bed, changing into "decent" clothes, catching a rickshaw and then sitting through tedious lectures was a task. So I would never go. I had a "zero" percent attendance in college. (Beat that) But I had two friends in my junior years and man they were studious. They attended each and every lecture, wrote down each and every word that came out of the teacher's mouth and even made their own notes! And the handwriting was great! So the complete two years of college, I did not attend. Instead I would meet them once a month and xerox everything ever written in their books! I am sure by the end of two years they started hating me. 

X for xenon. What is xenon? It is some noble gas. And why am I mentioning it here? Because it starts with X and is related to chemistry. And I hated chemistry. I have no idea how I managed to get through school with all the mad "science" subjects. Mad times.

X for xanthos. It means golden hair. I always wanted to have golden blonde hair. Don't ask why. Even I do not know. I also want red hair. Basically I want a different hair color. I am bored of my hair. 

Okay so I am stopping now. 

Need tea. 

PS- Here is the X doodle. X for the treasure map spot!

"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…

Some "Arty" talk while he does Origami....

I have been trying to find time to write a post about my travels but it has been impossible to do that. They say you "got to make time", but sometimes there just isn't any time for anything! I sometimes wonder, where the hell are these precious minutes going?

It's a lazy Tuesday today and a full house. After a very elaborate lunch of chole and vadas, cake and custard along with some paan. K has slept off and I am feeling sleepy just looking at him. But no! I am going to write and then do some art.

Thankfully I have gotten a good number of commissions since I have come back. I have two more to do, which I shall start today. I finally got around to re-create an Islamic pattern few days back. I was so happy while making it but really devastated with the way it turned out. It took me ages just to construct the grid and then I colored them up using pens. Not very happy with the look and finish of the design. Realised I have a long way to go. I need much more practise. Actua…

To the 2016 that was and a 2017 that will be...

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…
