I’m Akshita. A student, a voracious reader, a random-things writer, a traveller, and a life lover. And yeah, I forgot to add this; a bundle of contradictions (quoted from The diary of a young girl by Anne Frank. One of my favourite reads).This blog is about all of those things. It’s also about trying to find a place for myself and figure out this thing called Life.
It’s definitely a new experience for me to share my random and not-so-random musings with people. And blogging just seems like it’s reaching people out there. People, in the big, wide world, with their own lives and tales and ideas. And that wide world is where I want to make a place for myself, however small.
Maybe that’s why I love to read. Because it gives me a chance to meet new people and go places.
Maybe that’s why I love to write. It helps me in discovering the thoughts underneath.
And of course, I love to live, and see people and learn new things and have all sorts of new experiences and adventures.
The contradictory part:
As I’ve grown older, it has become more and more difficult to find time to read. There was a time when I used to finish books and books in a matter of days. That just isn’t possible anymore, what with assignments and exams and more exams. The same goes for writing. It has been ages since I’ve written anything for myself. There are days when I decide that I would just have to write something. I have had little luck with that.
There’s this another thing. I discover something new about myself everyday. And it all goes into being the person that I am. This is what I intend to record. The things that I learn. About myself. About people. About life.
And that’s pretty much it for the serious part! The lighter part is that I’m going to try to read as much as is possible in my busy schedule (ahem!) and write all the stories that come to my head. I’m also going to write book reviews though I don’t claim to be an expert at that. I may post a picture or two sometimes but I don’t think my poor camera will be able to handle it!
So, that’s all about me. Hope this journey into adulthood will be fun!
