Yellow.

Because I want a shirt of that colour.


It sucks when you're not as important to a person as they are to you. But it happens. And you also learn to get over it.

Only one week left to go for the holidays to get over. I have a huge pile of holiday assignments waiting for me, but I'm not going to do them. Honestly? I don't care. 

I read a bit of Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis- The story of a childhood and it's good. Very good. So good in fact that I actually ordered the books from flipkart even though I downloaded the book. It's a memoir done in the graphic novel format detailing the author's childhood in Iran, growing up amidst the revolution. It's funny, it's tragic, it's wonderfully sketched. Read it.

I also read Maus by Art Spiegelman. It is also a graphic novel (yes! I'm currently obsessed with them!) "Maus... is brilliant. Just brilliant."(I'm quoting from the back cover of the book here)
 I've read a few stories about WW II and the Nazis and the Holocaust, but this is one book that moved the most. Actually it's in two parts. The artwork is also beautifully done. Maus is also a memoir of sorts.. the author tells us the story of the survival of his parents mainly by interviewing his father. Spiegelman is so honest in his portrayal of his father with all his grey shades, their troubled relationship that this book is very personal. He depicted the Jews as mice, Germans as cats and Americans as dogs and it it startles you to see these undergo the hardships and concentration camp experiences. It is the only comic book to ever win a Pulitzer prize. (yes! Pulitzer prize!) Read this too.

Um. 





Wannabe writer. Is that all I'm ever going to be?

.-.

Ahm. So here I am again.


  •  I just downloaded free books from Amazon and one was very good, and the other, well, it just pissed me off. 
  • Amazon's AWESOME! Why don't we have something as good in India? :'( 
  • I'm kinda working. Yay! 
  • It's fun to be telling people that! :P 
  • Also takes mind off certain things. (that I haven't been dwelling on much recently, so YAY again!) 
  • Watching Thom Yorke dance is oddly fascinating. I've never seen any choreographed dance that resembles a dance that someone mentally disturbed would do. 
  • I watched Roman Holiday. Audrey Hepburn is fascinating too.
  • Zoo Tycoon and Roller Coaster Tycoon are the BEST.GAMES.EVER. 
  • I've finally narrowed down on my kindle accessories list. :D Can't wait to see it decked up. :P 
  • Also,expect an 'Ode To Kindle' post soon. :P 
  • I feel like college is over. For good. Regardless of the fact that I've still 3 and a half years of it left. 
  • Thatjustdepressedme. 
  • I'll go now. 
  • .-.
