Art in a square

If someone were to point to me and say 'she is quite creative, good in art & craft", i might have rolled on the floor laughing.. Mom can draw very well, good with her hands, and then hop skip jump me and go to my sis who again can draw well... !! 

Recently, met a stranger who has become a friend, who showed me that i had in me to do something creative as well .. 

Here's a bit of background before you start pulling your hair out!!

I attended what is called F4- face to face facebook friends meet, on a Wednesday evening at Subway, Nungambakkam... Friends of mine had mentioned it was a meet for people from facebook... Friend of friend of friend of friend... which is how the ball had rolled, and they had reached the magic number of 100 that wednesday i landed !! As i walked in, a flurry of Hi hello greeted me, some smiles, some curious glances and some silent reactionless faces... Made my way around, and soon found some familiar faces.... Also managed to meet this interesting guy Subash, who was creating what looked like a bird from paper.. 

Got me interested, i had read and seen pictures of Origami , but never thought i would get interested in something that looked mighty complicated.. Pretty soon, i was sitting in the table with 2other friends and we were hard at work, trying to make a camera, following his moves intently...

What a sense of accomplishment... hahaha....

Fast forward to the days that followed.... 

I was hooked to this art form, had a bit of doubt if i can create something ... What did i know!! Thanks to youtube, and Subhash's inputs, i have managed to get a crack at it and make something interesting whenever i find time.... 


At the next F4 meet, I picked up some Origami paper to the meet, and from thereon the journey has been fun!! Not addicted, but whenever i find some spare time, i try my hand at something new... :-) Most of it is on paper from my printer, at times i do sneak in an origami sheet[but they are so thick..damn...] :D






The 1st thing i made was.........a Butterfly... actually, tried 2 different kinds of butterfly...



Here's a collection of other stuff that i managed to create ,,,,

This is a cool site if you want to get some instructions and get started from... But, must tell you, the videos make it so much simple and easy!!

Wassup!!

Everytime i hear the words "Wassup" am tempted to say "the fan, the ceiling, my chimes, few mosquitoes randomly stuck upside down"..[and mind you, i have said one of these, all of these at different points of time] .. but nowadays, i've realised people use the word "Wassup" just as a ice breaker!! 

  • Awkward silences are filled with "Wassup"
  • Across social networking sites, micro blogging sites, its become a routine to exchange atleast a handful of "Wassup[s]" with people you've been interacting with... 
  • While on chat, if you've reached a point where there is nothing more to talk about [oh,yes,that happens with a few souls], in comes the infamous "Wassup"
  • Not to forget , text messages... especially from people who you've not been in touch with for a while.. out of the blue, bursting in your face .. there it is, the unmistakeable -- "Wassup"... 
It is nice to hear the word at times... atleast lets you know the other person remembers you!! :D

No more How are you doing? or Whats happening at your end?  be it a normal meeting;a do or die situation.. its always................yep, you guessed it..... "Wassup"

So, Wassup people? been long since i was here..!! all going good at your end i hope... Am sure you've all had your share of --
--Few mishaps every now and then
--Headaches and painful bosses on your ass
--Wondering if life is going the way you planned it or not
--Felt the need to show the middle finger  a few times every day... 

he he... 

"Wassup" i say!!! :D

Disclaimer: I opened the New post box, and stared at it.. and then , my hands and keyboard took over and the post happened...!! :o)
And if you know me, you'll know i am a good & sweet gurl... lolz!!

Whooosh

Wow, before you know it, the days are flying by and its not been 1,2,or 3,but 7 whole months that have gone by.. 2010 seems to be slipping through my fingers and am panicking, wondering what am i doing, where am i headed, what is this year going to be like?

Every year, as Dec 31st fades away, and Jan 1st floats in, we all make plans, well, if not major concrete ones, at least a broad outline of what all we would love to do in that year... I too did that, and well, cant say its been bad,but i just feel like i dont have enough time for all i dream of doing...

Looks like, i need to start picking up pace, getting aggressive,and not wasting a moment of any day!!! No time like the present!!! :D

Ok, time to go see whats on the plate for tomorrow now... have a lovely week ahead all!!
