I sometimes wish I was born mute. Because whenever I speak I land up hurting or offending people. Many a times, I didn’t intend to hurt people but still they were hurt. The problem is that I often fail to understand what effect some words have on people; impulsive as I am, I speak whatever comes to my mind, later I realise how terrible I was. But till then the damage has been done. I have hurt family, friends, everyone. The most befitting punishment should be isolation. Complete isolation. Terrible people like me deserve neither family nor friends. All I … Continue reading Mute

NajoWrimo Day #4 my door signs

Dear diary,      After today, if any body who passes by my room, would get to see this I’m a lazy drone, a spoilt kid actually. Always too lazy to keep my belongings in order. My room isn’t dirty mind you, you won’t find dead rats (not even alive ones) or rotting food or stinking clothes. I’m hygienic you see. It’s just haphazard. Clothes are clean, but not properly folded, worn clothes may be on my chair rather than on a hanger. Books and papers never stay in a clean stack or only on the table but they are strewn … Continue reading NajoWrimo Day #4 my door signs

NajoWrimo Day #2 what inspires my creativity

Dear diary,      I thought over the entry I wrote yesterday. Though I consoled myself saying that yes I’m creative by the smattering of writing skills I have, by collecting coins and stamps and by taking up some dance classes, but still I’m not convinced that I’m being fruitfully creative. why do I feel so deficit ? Is it my inferiority complex talking or is it the blunt truth that I’m not creative ? But whatever I’m doing, do you know who inspires me? A lot of people. My granddad inspires me in numismatics and philately. From him I knew … Continue reading NajoWrimo Day #2 what inspires my creativity

NajoWrimo Day #1- creative side of me

Dear diary, I’m not half as creative as my mother, she keeps creating sometimes beautiful out of almost anything and everything. I’m just awful, I can’t stitch, only the chain style stitch I can somehow do, but it’s turns out a crude work. Even though I took art classes for around seven years, all I can somehow do is anatomy diagrams, that too out of much difficulty. I can paint an already drawn picture but that’s nothing great, right? My creativity quotient is ZERO. It seems neither side of my brain works efficiently. The only thing “creative” is play around … Continue reading NajoWrimo Day #1- creative side of me
