I am having one of those rare moments of clarity. I know I am reading a good book I like when I have this urge to stop reading and immediately start writing. Writing something positive, and funny or at least a tiny bit sarcastic. I scratched the word 'good' because if 5 years spend to acquire 2 arts degrees, that are largely turning out to be useless in getting any appropriate jobs, taught me anything it's that art isn't good or bad. Any art is artist's expression of what they are thinking. How well it gets executed is whole another issue. I digress. I have had a mental block. A writer's block, if you want to call it that. Then my computer, like every other good thing in my life chose to die on me. It died so completely and with such utter finality that the computer fixer guy couldn't keep it breathing for even a few days. I am sitting in front of my sister's laptop in my old floral shorts bought for 50 bucks(that's like $1) from some roadside vendor, a huge shirt my dad got free with his Wrangler jeans and 3 day old un-watered messy bun thinking how I can own it all. I have been doing a lot of thinking lately, not that I am not spending my time over thinking some thing or the other on any given day, this is special. I am still trying to figure out what I want to be. I am at an age where I have most friends settled in their jobs, some going back for further degrees, some biting the marriage stick and others spending nights blacked out after a lot of boozing. I am doing none of those things. I am still trying to figure out what I love doing and if I can pursue that as a career. Meanwhile I am trying to stay financially independent enough so that my parents don't question all my soul searching this year. Needless to say I laugh at those who say they have willpower because they stayed off shopping for a month or so. I am made of iron when it comes to budgeting nowadays. I am giving myself a year for long term clarity's sake. 
Hope you all have been doing well while I was away.

I Touch You And You Turn To Dust

Will: At some point, Kalinda, you're going to have to confide in someone.  
Kalinda: No, I don't. You know what I discovered? I never have to confide in anyone.
The Good Wife

People will judge you no matter what you do or say.  They will place blame, make you doubt yourself, carve out a slice of your happiness and destroy it, but never will they acknowledge that they fell short as well. It will be easy to say that these people are taking the easy way out. But, life is not easy. Nothing in it is easy. People torture themselves in their own ways. You may think, if only you could explain, explain it all, and it would be perfect once again. But, trust once lost is hard to regain. You cannot tell them that, that won't make them see their own ways any clearer, it will drive them further away. It's better not to confide in anyone, not all the time anyway.
I hide wisdom and shattered dreams in my old wooden trunk.

The One In Which I Scold The Camera

I do have a certain affinity towards the way F.R.I.E.N.D.S episodes were titled.
Everyone who has to click their outfit photos mostly with the help of a timer, tripod and remote knows how easy it is to imagine the camera as an animate object who is deliberately screwing with you to ruin your shots.

This is a behind the scenes kind of shot from an upcoming outfit post.
Make-up I used to create this look:
Garnier BB cream with SPF 24
Dusted some loose powder
Avon Matte Lilly on the lips
Lakme Eyeconic - White
Colossal Kajal - Black
Miss Claire Matte Black Eyeshadow - 0804
The Body Shop Blush - shade Berry Cheeky from Color Crush range

Just casually chilling and hanging with Heisenberg aka Walter White.

I am not that great at managing time. I wish I was better. And I am hoping I can work on it. But, every time I feel like I am making progress, that I can finally devote equal amounts of quality time to work and play, something goes wrong and there I am running late for everything once more with a side dish of bad mood. At this pace I will be late for dying as well. Will I be able to ask Death for just a few more moments because I am running late? I do hope so. I will finish a book then.
