I made my first ever passport today!! This is the symbol of my gaining independence… The day I use it is the day I will be solely responsible for my entire self. (Not that I wasn’t to begin with, but well, my family are quite mollycoddling by nature, so I kind of let myself be taken care of most of the time am not very independent.)
Lately I’m not in a blogging mood. (I’ve been in a bit of a reading frenzy, to make up for the past couple of months when I was so busy with college, final semester and all.) Looking at the frequency of my posts, you must think that I must be crazy to be blogging any more than I already have, but usually I space out my posts between days… so at this point I always have a future post or two, but right now I don’t, so it feels like I’m stuck in a blogging rut. Which is silly, really, because I actually have a few ideas swirling in my mind, but somehow they are either never at the front of all the other thoughts swirling in there when I am in the mood to blog, or I am too lazy to blog (gasp?) when it is.
Meanwhile, to tide you over until I actually get around to blogging those things, here’s a little video of my Handwritten Valentine Project, inspired after seeing Juan’s video of his trip to Russia. And then I’ve done two memes here; one was tagged by Ish and the other I found here and I’m treating it like a meme.
“Think of THE song that most inspires you to write, whether it gives you an idea for a story, script or just puts you into a better frame of mind AND/OR peek into the lyrics and find a verse that sums up the theme of whatever project it is you’re working on.
If possible, post a video of the song to convey to readers the full context of the song and the mood it puts you into. Finally, send the assignment to five other writers to do as well.”
