Bitten by the DOODLE bug!

“Yankee Doodle went to town
A-riding on his pony
He stuck a feather in his hat
And called it macaroni”

*Keeps singing this bit of the rhyme repeatedly in her head*

I don’t know how or why this rhyme came to my head but it stuck. It stuck for a whole day and then all I wanted to do the next day was DOODLE! I guess it was the DOODLE in Yankee Doodle that got me to want to draw! =) Plus, a cold and rainy day makes you want to stay inside the comfort of your home! *Brrrrrr* Continue reading “Bitten by the DOODLE bug!”

I spy RED! :)

 

Hello Beautiful!

It’s that time of the year where all you see are hearts, hearts and more hearts! Small hearts, big hearts, pink hearts, red hearts, glittery hearts, matte hearts. An extra special day designed just to celebrate love! Yes, it’s Valentine day! Back when I was younger, we used to play these little games where the entire class was given this color code:

  • Red: You have a Valentine and you’re in “looooooove”!
  • Pink: You have a crush and are too shy to let the person know! I don’t remember if the boys ever wore pink! πŸ˜‰
  • White: You’re happy and not looking for anyone/anything OR it’s all hush hush πŸ˜‰ !
  • Black: You want to boycott Valentine’s Day and you absolutely detest the day! 😦 Continue reading “I spy RED! :)”

Hey you!

It’s a new year, which calls for a new resolution. This year I’m trying to go the toned down version of Mark Zuckerberg’s 2015 challenge (A wee bit late, I know! πŸ˜‰ Β ). I’m hoping to read a book a month and as Math would have it, 12 books by the end of this year! 12 books that will positively influence my life and my views in any little way possible. Going back a couple of weeks,Β I was browsing Pinterest and I came across this very wonderful list of short reads (For all you bibliophiles, I’ll have the link to the list pasted at the end of this post! :)). That’s where I stumbled upon “The Reluctant Fundamentalist” by Mohsin Hamid and it immediately piqued my interest. Continue reading “My thoughts on “The Reluctant Fundamentalist” by Mohsin Hamid”

To New Beginnings! :)

Before I begin, thank YOU for being here. This is going to be a fairly long post! You might want to stock up on some hot chocolate and cookies! πŸ™‚

Last year brought on many many changes in my life, mostly positive but some did not look as bright. Sigh! I started a new phase of life with someone I’m completely in love with (happy happy)! Left behind my family, my doggies and my friends to move to Beantown (Boston!) from Bangalore in May and boy, was Boston beautiful when I first saw her. Beautiful Boston, forever and for always!
