Disclaimer : Before you begin, this blog is about Polaroids and me in the Polaroids(to be honest it’s mostly about me). I just liked how Asteroids rhymed with it. Nevertheless I will share a piece of information so you don’t feel betrayed. I googled and trust me when I say, I googled hard and finally found that an asteroid has a slim chance of entering the earth’s atmosphere on November 2. Interesting! Right?
This Quarantine made me go back to painting after a long long time and I am so glad it did. I was running out of few colors but I mixed and matched the colors to paint something that I was longing for. No brownie points for any guesses. Beach it is. I can’t wait to visit the beaches once everything is fine. Last year I explored 3 hill stations and not a single Beach. Well! I had plans to do so this year but I doubt that’s possible now.Till then, Get all the beach vibes that you can out of this newly added painting in my Gallery for Artistic Thursday. Let me know what you think of it.
How much time do you think I have to wake up, makeup, and get all dressed up just to go… nowhere? Have you ever done something like this?I got this sudden urge to try practicing eye makeup (because I suck at it) and even though it was an epic fail I went ahead and applied lipstick and it was that moment when I realized I did all this for nothing. How sad?
Have you ever seen the trailer of a movie and decided whether it’s worth watching or not? Well! 2020 started as a comedy trailer and turned into a horror movie and now everyone wants to avoid it just like a Ram Gopal Verma movie but can’t. Hands down. 2020 gets the Most Disastrous year Award of the decade. It’s like 2020 was supposed to be one of the best years because of the digits(or whatever). Turns out we got bamboozled and all my tantrums of being daddy’s princess and not doing any household chores in the past are trying to set scores with me.
During the birth of a child in a movie it would show the pregnant lady lying in bed, crying hysterically in pain and suddenly there would be a crying baby beside her. I would be confused but I assumed that was the process. I actually believed the baby would just somehow appear and the tummy would reduce. Simple right? If cupid could make two people fall in love, I was sure he would be able to slide the baby beside too. Right? I didn’t really know then how a child was born. (Until I studied biology and that horrified me to bits). My way of analogy was much better. Don’t you think so?
Welcome to my Travelogue. Hop on board to view some amazing pictures from my recent trip to Ooty. It is undoubtedly the queen of hills. A specially curated video and some amazing pictures just for you.
To be honest, I have been to many hill stations before but Ooty made me want to stay there for a few more days. Unfortunately I had to wrap up the trip in just 2 days (not enough) but still enough for it to leave a mark on my mind. Hope you enjoy.
So I bought myself a personalized diary to write my thoughts in it. Big deal? Turns out I don’t have much thoughts!!! Only if I knew it before ordering one. Anyways, with each passing day I keep discovering that I have some traits of Joey. First, I don’t like sharing food and now this. I am just a thoughtless person it seems and well I don’t mind being Joey.
I certainly don’t regret buying this. I am in love with it and it looks super cute. All the more reason I don’t want to write but eventually I have to, so I plan to be super cautious and of course write in my best handwriting Possible.Ever.)
I started my car in a hurry and sped away from the place as fast as I could. I was speeding and kept telling myself, it’s just in your mind Ellie. Just when I thought things were getting better my car broke down. It was a strange place but luckily for me I could see a car repair shop just a few blocks away. I had no choice but to get drenched and run towards the shop. Two extra happy service men greeted me cheerfully as if glad to see a soul. I explained my condition to them. They agreed to help me. So along they came with me where I had my car. Or at least that’s where I thought I had my car. They looked confused as well. We walked in for a little while and there it was. But that couldn’t be my car. Could it? It was all crumpled and looked like it had been through some sort of accident. Did it happen after I left the car? Wow, that was such a close call.
As much as life is nothing without hope, there isn’t much life can give you unless you have any desire too. You can be hopeful for a better tomorrow but can you get what you want if you don’t aim for it? Or what if we don’t know what we want? Or much worse what if we leave our thoughts there itself, do nothing but just hope that tomorrow will be a better day?
You do know where I am going. Right? To make things happen a certain way we have to put in our desire into work. Hope, of course will keep on doing its job from back-end but from front-end we need to burn in our desires only to rise up more stronger, wiser and better.
Presenting before you my Burning Desire!!!
As a child I believed that when we grow old, our parents would become small and we would take care of them like they do for us right now. After certain time they would again grow old and we would become small and they would take care of us. This process would continue in a cyclic manner. It never really crossed my mind then that it wasn’t the logic that God followed. However coming to think of my logic, it would have been great, don’t you think?
There should always be that little flicker of light in our dark days. There should always be the scope of better times and a happy tomorrow. There should always be positive vibes around. The world is already sick and we cannot afford to be sick as well. We deserve all the happiness and I believe only when we are happy can we spread happiness. I have blood group AB+ and I keep saying Always Be positive is what defines me. I find happiness in all the small things. That’s the best way to live life. Isn’t it?
Who is it?
And you think I Shall care?
Of course. Now that you’re out on your own. You cannot afford not to CARE.
She sat on the bus. The driver looked at her from the rear mirror and suddenly she felt smaller than a peanut. It looked like people were staring at her. She sat up straight. She analysed it was the right time for her hand sanitizer act. She quickly searched her bag for that and pressed the pump a little bit. Massaging her palms together she started looking outside the window. She felt a lot more confident now.
All you have to do is follow a pattern to fill the page. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Simple designs can give awesome result. You can lift your pen after completing a series or if you want to make a continuous form of art you can do that too. You just don’t have to pick up your pen at all. Interesting right?
I think this art will look great in crushed paper too. The background will add to the texture. Don’t you think so? The best thing about this form of art is you can do it anywhere. Like literally!!! You are bored. You have a pen and paper by your side. Just let your imagines run wild (but remember only with a pen not a knife).
It was around 5 PM. I was doing great . I just had my afternoon nap and was playing with my tail.(You know where I try to get hold of my tail but it keeps going round and round and then I have move round and round) You really have to be a dog to understand that!!!
So I stand there with the letter in my hand. The police asks me several questions (when? where? how?) and for some reason I am very nervous. I try to act confidant. But God!!! they sure can make you weak in your knees even if you haven’t done anything wrong. Even if it’s you who is reporting a crime, you will end up feeling like a criminal. Pheww. I tried to act cool and you know maybe joke a little bit( Bad timing!!!) So I shut up finally . He is done with the process and I am thankful to get that stamp in my letter.
I am so glad I learnt something new today. I would definitely give Meg’s art a big YAY.
I always encourage you to create your own masterpiece because I believe when you can write(Blogs) you’re already creative. So why not give painting a try. You might surprise yourself. 🙂
I love this particular piece of art because I find myself smiling whenever I look at it. It gives me this positive vibes which I feel somehow gets lost in our day to day life. Why dwell on to the negativity? Let us not let the world succumb us to its sadness and darkness. Rise above all and keep spreading love , peace and happiness and that can only be done when you’re happy from within. Help me spread the word for art reviews. Share it if you like 🙂
5.30 PM : I woke up from my evening nap. I will go take my walk now. I have noticed a trend with humans where they click selfies after waking up and claim to look flawless(you know how!!!). Well to be honest my human does cheat a little bit. Who wakes up with lip gloss and mascara ? Anyways, I will be true to you guys.
So I receive the call in my sleepy voice which I think is very 1/cosC=SecC (but again I find it true for all the sleepy voices.) Do you think so too ?
Coming back to the point. I say Hello, and in comes a chirpy voice Hello Madam, it’s from some XYZ bank(Why is she so happy? 🤔(I really don’t care after that ). You can understand my frustration here, right? It’s preposterous!!! Another weekend sleep gone in vain. Sigh!!!
I am Loyal, Royal and damn Rich. Will you marry me? Just asking. Maybe you will dream of me tonight. You never know.

Coming back to my Shades Of Life, It is yet again a painting that is close to my heart. It took me a lot of patience to get what I wanted. But that is what life is. Isn't it? You need to struggle sometimes to get what you want . You will find happiness comes with sadness, success comes with failure. There is nothing to worry about. You will overcome it all if you face your situation. Just have patience and wait for the next best thing to happen in your life. You will be yourself surprised at what the world has got to offer you. Yes, this painting taught me to be patient and the result is in front of you.
If luck is by your side, it won’t be a sunny day and you would love the climate. However, God always plans to test my strength and I had a perfect sunny day by my side(Too sunny and let me set this straight once and for all, I don’t quite like the sun)
