Good question! A lot of different places? (Sorry, it’s not cool to answer questions with questions.) Okay, the truth… I can’t remember if I mentioned this on my blog before – I took up a full-time job sometime in October, last year. It was with a brand I was really excited about and liked (perhaps still do) and I felt chuffed to have made the cut after directly applying to the HR team there, etc. – there didn’t seem like much to complain about. I was guaranteed a (slightly more than) decent source of income every month, and my weekends were mostly free (unless otherwise stated) – and therefore, seemingly be able to take care of my blog, on the side. Ending this story real quick, that job didn’t work out for me.
While the profile I had there helped me grow in terms of getting out of my comfort zone (after more than a year), reviving my love of boarding fast trains from Dadar back home, learning how to use a Macintosh computer (gah, I think I am not so averse to Apple products anymore), and a little movie editing (and this and that), etc. – being there was not making me very happy. I won’t bore you with the specifics – I am out of the fire, and I feel alive with hope. I really do, and for the first time after ages, I don’t feel depressed. 2015 was not a bad year, and so much happened – and I have loads to look back on but I want to think of it too, as my year of mistakes. Which is good, ah… It’s somewhat difficult to communicate how happy I am RN while I am trying to tell you of the me from before.
Ooh, so I am not sure if you were able to read into some clues here that happened by way of making this illustration for the post… You probably can’t (SIGH), I just have so many of these crazy+cool secrets going on in my brain.
Before I wrap up, nope – I haven’t mastered the art of coding yet but I played around with some of the free themes available for WordPress to change the layout of my blog, a little. Bon? Oh, and won’t you please check out my friend Sonaksha’s watercolour and #creaturesofwords posts on her Instagram feed. They’re so beautiful to look at, and I am filled with awe, inspiration, jealousy and love all at once. Real works, them! #Wanterlust
