A piece of junk decor and an insight

Theres just so much junk paper around, from pizza to furniture catalogues, that I had to do something with it. Felt I could find some use of the glossy papers but they did nothing other than fill up drawers.
Found some designs from and decided to make some DIY wall art! (yeah of course I am supposed to study for my interviews next week)

So I cut the shiny junk into droplet designs and pasted them on A4 size papers and stuck the papers on the walls with PVC tape. Not bad! 2 cents art. Heh.

Whenever I have to study or work I get creative and do all these crafts. But if I had to make crafts for a living I guess I would prefer computer programming anyday. You start losing interest on stuffs once the work gets obligatory. Then you look for other avenues for "play".

And work and play are so interchangeable. Its only the way you look at it. So running on inclined treadmills is play but lugging heavy rations to the hilltop town is definitely work.

The elusive secret agency.

Sandy's comment made me recall the plans for being a secret agent(its still there and I still get dreams about it). It didn't fade away in school and even in college I was determined to work in that field.Close ones to whom I divulged this ambition called me immature and that irritated me(these sort of people still irritate know the ones who fall too short of their dreams and are frustrated enough to discourage anyone else to follow theirs). So anyway I went forward, found the govt agencies , the exams for them and everything. That is until I found this aunty! who is a RAW agent...and the bubble burst. I got to know a lot about the agency. While the training is fun(just the way I imagined!) the job isn't guaranteed to be so. And (lol) what the movies and books don't describe is how emotionally sick the job can be.

~~And I'm yet to find an un-corrupted, non-hierarchical, ethical, non-power playing secret agency :P ~~

I'm not looking at the job(and the people who work in that field) with disdain suddenly, I just think I may not be up for it.

Friday night thoughts of a housewife

I cringed at the title I just typed myself. Housewife...Thats like a taboo word. 10 years back I couldn't even imagine this! A girl(or should I say woman) like me shouldn't(and couldn't) settle for this. But I'm content and happy.So much that I'm getting scared.
So let me get my ambition thoughts together.

What did I want to be when I grow up, as a kid?
Secret agent..(gr8)

What did I take up in college?

In which field of work did I get into after college?
tester of software programs in an MNC..(erm?)

What happened to it?
well I dropped off to elope..(!!)

~~Sometimes I amuse myself with my own life~~

I am not sure if I can call myself confused. I think impulsive and intuitive is the word.Theres no point planning anything.
