‘And’ Is Given For A Reason; Use It.

Ask me what my ambition is and I can’t pick just one. THIS was my first post on this blog. I just read it today and realized that 4 years back, I believed that none of my ambitions would come true. The tone of my post clearly says that. But today, my mindset is entirely different. I am determined to keep an ambition-list and tick them off one by one. Someday! Soon.

It is difficult for a person with so many interests to limit themselves. It is more difficult for us to find time for all of them. But I manage. There is no hurry. There are no deadlines. I do whatever I feel like doing, whenever I feel like doing them. I follow my heart. 🙂

To start with, I love singing. I have been taking music lessons since I was 4 years old. But it kept breaking off due to my teachers or because of my exams. I still manage to try & keep up my voice though it happens very rarely.

This is the ME I'm talking about :P
This is the ME I’m talking about 😛

I Love to write, which is why I am maintaining this blog. I used to contribute around 8-10 articles for my class magazines ranging from poems to stories to drawings. I had a book where I used to write down all my poems. Sadly, the books used to disappear. Once I become an author, I hope the books would disappear from the stalls too! 😛

Drawing is another area that I find happiness in. Specially, pencil sketching. I am not very good at it. But not bad either. I know I can excel in it if I get some training. During my college days I used to make some good sketches. But now, I don’t really look in that direction. But mind you, I don’t intend to stop. 😉

My attempt at sketching. I know it has many flaws.

 

Teaching was one among the n number of ambitions I had. My first students were – Kili, Kilimanju, Manju, Tikku, Kilitikku – my dolls. There were a dozen others for whom I had given my classmates’ names. 😛 Right now, my career is going in a very different direction. But once I get settled, I will go into teaching. We have organizations that teach children in orphanages. I will join them and follow my ambition.

Modelling is something I still want to pursue. I don’t want to become a well known model. But I’d love to be the model for a boutique or a clothing brand. As I was harboring this idea, a couple of friends decided to start their own clothing brand and asked me to join for the photoshoot. I am glad that there is something I craved for so badly and finally did! 😀

I have always wanted to do fashion designing, a course in Sanskrit, MSW & journalism. I have looked up some institutes from where I can do correspondence courses for the same. All I need is to clear CA, get a job and pursue these courses.

I am sure many of you must be thinking that the list is a bit too much. Really! I am not making this up. I want to learn and pursue every bit of things I have mentioned here. I will definitely try. After all, there is nothing to lose. There are no ‘Or’s in our lives. Only ‘And’s. I realized that when I was asked to go for the photoshoot. And by then I had made up my mind about my multiple degrees. 😀 Because, the word ‘And’ exists for a reason.

  1. I think you will soon be more free than I shall ever be 🙂
    I had the Sanskrit course dream too, and half-completed it 😀 I am usually confused about what to dream 😉 About multiple degrees, I love it 😀

    1. And why that judgement about freedom may I ask? 😛
      Half completed it matlab? You should so complete it!
      I go through that confusion too, sometimes. But finally, I get back to this list 😀

      1. It is not judgement, but a thought or a feeling 😛 Because you have plans and you know what to do – well, it seems so.

        They stopped the course because I was the only student left 😀

        This is what I am talking about – you get back to the list. I click on a computer game and shoot a few people and go to sleep 😛

      2. I do have plans. But none of these plans would work unless I clear CA. I don’t know when that would be.

        If the course I was doing was stopped, I’d pretty much be like you. To get me started on something is really difficult. Once I stop midway, getting back is difficult too. 🙂

        Anyway, we will see what happens 😉

      3. I am pretty much dumb about things that are outside my courses (except for Engineering and MBA which everyone studies and talks about :D). I have no idea how CA works 🙂 Best of luck in clearing it, no matter how difficult it is 🙂 And do keep writing 🙂

      4. Same pinch! I know only about MBA & CA 😛 Basically it is like you write & write in May & Nov every year until you clear. No! Failing is not bad coz all your friends give you company. It is one big gettogether on exam days 😛
        Thank you for the luck. 🙂

      5. Sounds like the NET exams. You write in June and December until you clear or decide to do something else. Failing is quite natural and if you pass, a lot of people get shocked. Juniors ask “chetta ezhuthunille?” and seniors ask “nirtharayilledey?”. Yes, there is the get-together too 🙂

      4. You just need to embed each of your songs. Click on your song, click share, there is an embed option. Just copy the code, change the aspect ratio as per how big or small you want the player to be & paste it on your blog. 🙂

  2. Hello Ranju,
    Beautiful sketch. I just loved it. It’s amazing to know that you are multi-talented 🙂

    Thanks for the tag, but I guess it’s for women and women empowerment?
