April 25th.

Leave from work officially begins today. One whole month of leave from work to study for exams. Which honestly I have no intention of doing. But I have some self set goals for these 30 days.

April 25th.

Distraction. Contention.

Sleepless nights have been replaced with the hunt for inspiration.
Distracted mornings are replaced by happy Facebook Page refreshes.
Sadness has been replaced by the love for drawing.

Have been going home since a few days with the sole idea of drawing whole evening. Made a Facebook page to share it with the world. I love drawing. Making cute little people. Monsters. Muchis.

And all this is making me content. Content with life. Content with failures. 20140220-122329.jpg

Distraction. Contention.

Death.

Death is weird. We don’t want to think about it. We are awkward talking about it. Even knowing for a fact that it is inevitable.

Kree’s grandfather passed away yesterday. He was ill since a long time. Kree did not come to class yesterday so I casually called her up. She told me about her grand dad’s demise. I was caught off guard. I am especially weird when it comes to condolence. Words of sympathy coming out from my mouth feel wrong even to my own self. Maybe because I hold up a facade in front of people that is completely non-emotional.

And it was there. She had given me the news. And “it” was supposed to be done. I tried being emotional but words were failing me. And I told her exactly that, “I don’t know what to say”. She smiled. Even on the phone I knew she was smiling on the other end and she said, “I know. I understand. I know how it is for you.”

She UNDERSTOOD. Some people are too good for words. So I’ll end this here.

Death.
