This week has been crazy. This month has been crazy. Everything I never thought would happen to me, did. I woke up this morning and realized I didn’t put up a blog this weekend and I almost gave into it thinking “one weekend. I’m on break.” But it didn’t seem right. This is going to be the second post where I don’t have an actual topic. But here goes :
I wanted to add this because in my previous blog, Looks can be deceiving – where I talked about how you should walk up to a stranger and tell them that everything is going to be ok, someone had asked me if I had ever walked up to someone on the street and told them that. I realized then that I hadn’t added my personal experience in the post. So let me do it now. The experience that inspired my post was not a situation where I went up to someone and told them that. But rather, the other way around.
October of last year, my mum had taken me out and I’d finished early so I was sitting in a corner and was waiting for her to finish her stuff. I was whatsapping my friend and smiling about something. I looked like a normal 21-year-old. Nothing looked wrong. Nobody could even guess that two weeks before that I’d gone to see a psychiatrist because I was drowning in depression. I had my hand on my cheek and that’s not a good thing to do, according to my tradition. So this old man walked up to me and told me not to do that. I listened to him (you don’t really want to say no to someone that old) and he walked away. A few minutes later, he walked back to me and said “Don’t worry. It’ll be ok. No problem is unsolvable.” I don’t know why or what made him do it. But that entire day I was so positive. A few weeks later, I started this blog and right after I got my first follower, I mentally thanked him for giving me hope when I needed it. That’s why I suggested the experiment. I didn’t look like I needed to hear those words, what with my smiling and giggling and a nice fancy smartphone, but I really really really did. 🙂
Also, the first thing I realized beginning of this week was that every time I have to write actual, I write actualy. It’s annoying as a writer that I mess up the easiest and most simplest of words.
My aim to finish chapter 3 of my book by the end of May hasn’t happened. I’m half way through chapter two and then I just got super busy.
May also marks my six month bloggiversary. (I don’t know if that’s a word. But it describes this perfectly.) I’m really glad I took the plunge. I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for six months. It’s been amazing 😀 Thank you for all the comments and the encouraging words. Thank you for the creative criticism. Just.. THANK YOU 🙂
The last time I did a post like this, I added a few of my poems from the past. This time, it’s all about the arts … or doodles actually. 🙂
Have a good week ahead of you 🙂

I am so jealous of all your talents. I may have to stop following you before I give up blogging. 🙂
Awww, thank you so much 🙂 I think I just had too much free time on my hands for a long time.
Too much creativity to hold in.
Haha yeah, that too. My brain just gets filled up and I either write or doodle or sketch to get it all out. I call it brain vomit. I just realized how disgusting that sounds. 🙂
Wow. I bow down at your amazing awesomeness.
Haha thank you. But really, I’ve seen your blogs.. They’re amazing. 🙂
Oh, no. You are the master, I am just the Big Fat Panda. 🙂 Gotta love Kung Fu Panda.
I’m nowhere near being a master. I don’t think I’ll ever get there. The money making world of writing is very restricted. Doesn’t let the brain vomit stuff happen.
Believe it or not, I’ve never seen Kung Fu Panda. :p
And you are still full of awesomeness? How even more amazing. 🙂 I’ll leave you alone now. 🙂 So you can create more awesomeness to share.
Now I smell a little sarcasm. But I’m just going to take that as a compliment anyway 🙂 So thank you soo much 🙂 And just for all the sweet words, I’m going to watch Kung Fu Panda this week. 🙂 I’ll let you know how it goes. 🙂
🙂 No sarcasm at all. Well I guess as in you don’t have to have watched Kung Fu Panda to be awesome maybe. 🙂 But do please share more awesome creations. It makes the rest of us work harder.
Thank you. It’s words like these that motivate me to be better. Thank you very very much 🙂
Its a very nice post but I have one minor point. You said, blogiversary describes perfectly the idea that you began your blog six months ago. That is all very nice and dandy but 🙂
annus=year and versus=turning
anniversarius = returning yearly
blog = blog and versus = turning
blogiversarius = returning blogly
Wow. Can I just pretend to be a second grade student and say “but I like what I think it means !” ? 😀 pretty please? 🙂
And thank you 🙂
Your doodles are cool. Sometimes all we really need is an outlet. 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Very true .. 🙂
