Cheers to everyone who loves Experimentation and Diversification!

Experimenting can sometimes be frustrating.  I love learning new stuff every single day. In fact, I relish the feeling of being clueless about a field of study and then trying to master it;) But when you’re surrounded by niche-oriented people who know what they’re doing and are specialists in their field, experimenting feels pointless. There have…

Varied Passions.

My varied interests haunt me sometimes. ‘Your child is multi-talented’ they said when I was a kid. .

The “fake” girl.

Proper Communication is more important than you think

The indirect way of saying things is so cool right? We get to express what we want without actually saying anything. We save ourselves of the trouble of speaking our mind out, which in many cases might not be something which the other wants to hear. We all fear the reaction that we might get, or…

Just being there is enough:)

I’m sure that we’ve all been In a situation where we know that our friends need us, but we hesitate to approach them. But have you wondered why is it that we hesitate? Why do we feel “awkward” to approach a person we care about?  This “awkwardness” is our insecurity, it reflects the uncertainty that lies…
