Rediscovered Love

Now heres something most people don't know about me.

See, when I was growing up, during my school days, we didnt have cable connection on our TV. Which I am very thankful for, because that is the time I took up pretty much everything that makes me happy till this day - writing, singing, dancing, dreaming about my brilliant future... and drawing.
While most of these things found their way into the future somehow, there was drawing, that was abandoned somewhere along the way. It was infact my most favourite of all activities - I remember a ship that I had sketched while in the 6th standard, because I was bored on a Sunday afternoon, using one of those cool pen-pencil things :D I remember my art teacher telling me its impossible that I used only one pencil to draw the whole thing. I dont know exactly why, but ever since college began (pretty much a decade ago), I gave up drawing alltogether.

And today while strolling along the aisle at Hypercity, wondering if the cute guy I passed in the sports aisle was someone I had seen before (he turned out to be one of the TV actors from one of Mom's saas-bahu saga's)... I came to the stationery aisle and decided to go crazy. I ended up buying myself pretty much everything there was, including this super awesome set of oil pastels and came home to start trying it all. And this is what I ended up with.

Not too bad for a first timer, never-used-em'-before Oil Pastel-er eh? :P I know it looks like something a child would draw :P but lol I am one anyway! :) ... I think I am going to do more of these. This made me REALLY happy in a pretty sad week.

Hey,not bad for a start ! Drawing was one of my fav activities more than a decade ago ( Shehh...I feel old now :P ) Maybe I should try it sometime too.

Considering how I can never use oil pastels to make anything, this is just so awesome in my eyes :D
