I am glad you stopped by…Thanks for that!!!
This is Rashmi, a young enthusiast. Enthusiast for what??? For living a quality life. Often drowning in deep thoughts, capable of pondering upon a numerous things in a single day-that is quite peculiar of me. At times, even the minutest detail doesn’t amiss my eyes and at others’ I am so busy day-dreaming that it doesn’t seem to matter, what’s going around. Analyzing ongoing/existing things, deriving inferences from them-is my favorite pastime, I don’t need to put in much effort there.
And yes, I can’t live without scribbling on a paper. If everything vanishes, even then, I’ll require a pen and a paper to survive.
An era that moves at a breakneck speed, is what we are living in right now. Whatever you are, wherever you are-there is a multitude of things you are required to do to let the ends meet, running after one and the other. Highly tight schedules, complex work-life situations, expanded world-it’s the everyday chronicle of every second person.
But don’t you feel, life is not about repenting, not becoming a slave to daily routines? It’s about doing all those things, you don’t want to miss. Rather than running after all the ‘urgent’ things, it is required to do the ‘important’ things-that may rather sustain us to do the needful.
Hence “expressbywords” is a pursuit to unfold those ‘not-so-urgent’ areas of our life:
- It’s a place where you can find topics about the general things that focus more on the human side rather than facts and figures.
- Picking up topics from everyday life and deriving conclusions, putting those lessons in words-to refer, as and when required.
- Some lighter aspects that may bring in some calmness, divided into assorted sections like day to day experiences, food, travel, leisure and a few about work as well.
- Above all, a platform to befriend you and learn from you & your experiences.
The utmost intention is-to let you go “feeling-better” from this blog.
How it all started?
Frankly speaking, I got the very basic idea about a blog from the movie ‘Julie and Julia’ like most of us. And when we visited Agra in 2010, I didn’t want to let the episode fade away without recording the things I felt there and sharing it with the world. It started since then and I couldn’t look back after that, nor I want to…this blog is a world to me now, where I am all set to discover more friends, people who share visions and thoughts with me, those who are ready to express-themselves-by-words.
A little more about me…
- I am an architect, by choice. When I had to take a career decision 10 years back, I didn’t have any access to movies like 3 idiots, inspiring you to follow your passion and not the herds. But that’s exactly why, I selected to be in a profession that interested me more, that seemed more creative.
- I was a science student but the maximum marks I attained in my exams, used to be from ‘literature’ :)
- I am the first daughter of my adorable and encouraging parents, who have always backed me up for every venture I take up. I have two charming siblings, for whom I want to be always there, when needed.
- And I am lucky to be married to a lovable husband, who is so versatile and favorable at all times, all endeavors. And now I own a lovely little daughter as well who is, as Steve Jobs rightly quotes, my heart walking outside my body
- Above all, I am a Cancerian and nothing is more constant in me, than my mood swings :)
- Travel is one of the things that overwhelms me and this is one of my wishes to travel the major places in this world.
- I love finding recipes and cooking them whenever I get some time. Apart from that, things like music, movies, organizing things and much more often interest me.
So I welcome you here, to this mini-world of me.
