It's been a while. I have a bunch of drafts which all begin this way. Let's see if this one actually makes it out to the big bad world of the internet.

For those who care:
Where-abouts, what-abouts?

Still in LA, actually I have a new home. Sorry it's not new really, it's been home for the last six months, at Burbank. Did I say Burbank, why yes, yes I did. Did I mention I work at Disney Animation? I DIDN'T!? Blasphemy! It HAS been incredibly long since my last post. After my rollercoaster of a life since graddy day last May, I think I finally landed on solid ground (in that aspect). And it was an amazing ride! And guess what, it still is! :) I'm going to take this opportunity and tell you guys to watch 'Wreck-it Ralph', out in theaters Nov. 2nd. It's a movie about a arcade game villain, trying to prove that he can be a hero of sorts too, which also yours truly is currently working on.

 Have I mentioned I love my job? :)

I'm also going to take a moment to again explain to you guys the awesomeness of being optimistic. Blind faith, y'all. Seriously. Believe it'll happen. And. It. Will. It really truly will. Remember all that jazz about the universe coming together to give you what you truly want. It's all true. It will happen if you want it to, badly enough.

Ah, don't you love me? Along with motivational speeches you also get E! news worthy information. What would you do without me? Huh huh huh?

This post goes out to Aditi, who was kind enough to point out I don't blog anymore. And I thought, enough is enough! The world needs a little bit of awesomeness in their life. And if I can be that source, I definitely will!

That's it for now! But I will be back. Soon. Y'all need me! :)

Dear Silverstreak,

Please please learn to not put your foot in your mouth. PLEASE.

Sincerely, me.

Help, God.

She stands a mere five feet one inch (although she will argue that it's one and a half inch). And it's five feet one inch of all that is awesome. No, I'm not talking about me, I'm not that narcissistic. (alright, fine, I am)
She's the personification of no-nonsense. She's the most arrogant person you will EVER come across. If you have an argument about something, it's going to have to be you to make amends. She will make sure you see things her way. She is never afraid to say no to anything, or anyone, one thing a failed to pick up from her. She is loud, she's proud, she's perfect. She's.. my mother!

She is the most adorable thing you will ever meet. She will love you unconditionally. She will trust you without question, up until the moment you break that trust. She will give you all the freedom in the world to go for what you want. She will never question your decisions, always giving you a chance to do whatever you want, yet she will never hesitate to call you out when she thinks you're doing something wrong. She would totally die for people she loves.  She will jump with joy when she manages to access her email all by herself! She is THE only person who can calm me down when I'm hyperventilating. She is the one person who knows me in and out, knows when something is bothering me even when I don't know it myself. She makes the most amazing karela in the world! She's super sensitive, though she'd rather die than admit it (I guess thats where I get it from). She's the one person I can confide in with just about anything! She's simple, yet graceful. She's plain, but beautiful, and she's the strongest woman I know. She's the reason I'm me.

This one's for you mum. I know I don't say it enough, but I love you. I wish someday I atleast amount to half the woman she is.

Dear God,

I really, really, REALLY need you on my side tomorrow.


Note to self...again!

Dear silverstreak,

Seriously, let's not get ahead of ourselves, now.

Home life

In the last month, I've left home thrice. The first time, it was awesome, I left home to go HOME, Bangalore. Then it started getting sad. Leaving Bangalore, and now leaving LA. I'm a little sick of it and very very miffed. Please send me back to LA. And eventually Bangalore!!

Maximum city

August 2010.

I left Bangalore and in my head, completed the Bangalore chapter. My parents were moving to Delhi, and I had little hope of returning to the city in the near future. I left. And tried hard to de-Bangalore myself. For a year, I stayed away. Fewer phone calls, stayed in my newly proclaimed home for Christmas etc. And somewhere I thought, I could do this, this is working.

Then two weeks back, I decided an impromptu, extremely spur-of-the-moment trip back home.

I had a plan. A plan to work in LA for, say, five or six years, gain some experience and head home when I felt I was ready. But after the previous year, I wasn't really sure what home was (there was NO way in hell I could call Delhi home). So I extended the tenure of the aforementioned plan.

Then, I stepped out of the flight into the Bangalore International Airport. And it hit me. F#$@ the plan. The end plan is to stay happy. And happiness and Bangalore go side by side. My city is filthy. The traffic is unbearable. The METRO will never be complete. There are wayyy too many people. The pollution will probably kill you. If that doesn't, then petrol prices and auto fares will definitely give you blood pressure.

But. It's. Home. It's familiar. And it's beautiful. And you will never be truly happy if you're away from the city. 

So as of now, my plan needs serious change. I'm back in LA, jet lagged and vey miffed. But there's definite clarity. I'll be back. Very soon. You can't keep me away. You could try but you'd just fail. Epicly fail.

Home life

Whoever said 'home is where the heart is,' has clearly never been to Bangalore.

Unless ofcourse their heart's in Bangalore.

My rollercoaster

So, I've decided the best thing about life is the uncertainty of it all. Don't get me wrong, it is pretty awesome, when the Big Guy decides to let you in on some part of his plan for you, but even more awesome, when he decides life should sweep you off your feet, in the most amazing ways. I like how He let's you think you've got it all figured out and then boom! decides that you need that detour and then those two other detours and then that freeway exit which puts you on the track He's laid out for you all along. And then, just when you're beginning to think, 'wow this is it!' or even 'oh crap, is this it?, He steps in again, and it's roller coaster time all over again!
