Daily Prompt: Millions

via Daily Prompt: Millions

Millions of people.

Jostling, making their way through.

The crowd. The streets full with their sounds, laughter, noises..

Everywhere, you go and you see

Them.

Yet, each seeks their own space, time and energy.

Let them be…and find yourself within it

The lyrics to JB’s “Cold Water”

Everybody gets high sometimes, you know
What else can we do when we’re feeling low?
So take a deep breath and let it go
You shouldn’t be drowning on your own

And if you feel you’re sinking,
I will jump right over into cold, cold water for you
And although time may take us into different places
I will still be patient with you
And I hope you know

I won’t let go
I’ll be your lifeline tonight
I won’t let go
I’ll be your lifeline tonight

Cause we all get lost sometimes, you know?
It’s how we learn and how we grow
And I wanna lay with you ’til I’m old
You shouldn’t be fighting on your own

And if you feel you’re sinking,
I will jump right over into cold, cold water for you
And although time may take us into different places
I will still be patient with you
And I hope you know

I won’t let go (I won’t let go, no, no, no, no, no, no)
I’ll be your lifeline tonight
I won’t let go
I’ll be your lifeline tonight

[MØ:]
Come on, come on
Save me from my rocking boat
I just want to stay afloat
I’m all alone
And I hope, I hope
Someone’s gonna take me home
Somewhere I can rest my soul
I need to know

[Justin Bieber & MØ:]
You won’t let go (I won’t let go, no, no, no, no, no, no)
I’ll be your lifeline tonight
You won’t let go
I’ll be your lifeline tonight

[Justin Bieber:]
I won’t let go
I won’t let goEverybody gets high sometimes, you know
What else can we do when we’re feeling low?
So take a deep breath and let it go
You shouldn’t be drowning on your own

And if you feel you’re sinking,
I will jump right over into cold, cold water for you
And although time may take us into different places
I will still be patient with you
And I hope you know

I won’t let go
I’ll be your lifeline tonight
I won’t let go
I’ll be your lifeline tonight

It’s how we learn and how we grow

[Justin Bieber:]
I won’t let go
I won’t let go

I find these words ring so true for me and people my age. It is a song about friendship and being faithful to the person you love (or persons)..

I am grateful to Major Lazer and JB for coming up with a song like this. Lol!! (Basically because it restores my faith in humanity).

Peace!

Undone

There is a letter hiding

Inside this envelope.

Addressed in handwriting

As if etched….on

A print I recognize…..

Familiar marks I wished, at times, I never knew

Other times, I wished I had known better.

So are our lives…..represented

By this letter……

A relationship of a paper receptacle

With its four corners, glued folds

A flap that awaits closure

With many words waiting to be

Understood

You have added, perhaps

A final voice inside this letter.

An ending I search for

Mixed with the anxiety for the loss

Of the sound your words make.

And the question is

If I open this letter

Will reading it stir up all those summers

heated in our veins, or

Will its therapy send a cool breeze

To pacify all the seasons we have invested

In? ….Surely, the wind is unpredictable.

If the breeze picks up,

As it has done many times

I run…

Princess chelsea!

Yulia, what do you see in him?
Yulia, what could you want from him?

You’re the same age as me
And there’s nothing that I can see
No unified theory
That will convince me

Yulia, what do you see in him?
Painting lions on the back of a cookie tin
Is is better to be different than to be better?
Yulia, how can you be with him?

You’re the same age as me
And there’s nothing that I can see
No unified theory
That will convince me

That you are happy

Drawing food and little booklets

Someone fantastic. As usual.

“Have Your Cake and Draw it Too” – Food Illustrators Reflect on Taste and memory

I didn’t realise that it’d be landing in the real world so soon! Here’s my little contribution; basically an introduction to me and my drawing.

One of my primary motivations for drawing my food was documentation; usually when we go out for a meal it is to either to simply to have a lovely experience or to even celebrate, with friends and family.

When I look back at a foodie drawing – it often transports me back to that time and place; I am able to recall sights and sounds and smells at that location and better remember the whole experience.

Of course, the real trick is to not just draw a picture of the food, but to try to capture a…

Why I’m choosing to study mass communication

Science is vast. Knowledge is vast. Once you start studying those elaborate concepts of the subjects in great detail, you realize just how much there is to fathom about nature and of the living world. Biology, physics and chemistry have taught me that there is more than meets the eye, that there is a fantastic world that lies beyond our mundane tasks of daily life.

However, it is one thing to read of such things purely out of curiosity and interest, and another to study them as preparation for an examination where you are competing with 20, 30 or even hundreds of other people trying to achieve the same goal as you.  That is when, I start to realize how a competitive nature is getting the better of my thoughts, stopping that childish, innocent and simple curiosity that was hitherto present. When that competition starts, you just tend to figure out a way to keep having an upper hand above other people, and not let things “just be the way they are”, thus destroying the peace of mind. Atleast, that has what has been true of me for quite some time.

I keep thinking often, actually most of the time, that is that what i am trying to achieve here? Just prove that i’m better than everybody else?

Or is it that I let things be the way that they are, suppress that competitiveness within me and move in a direction of calmness, beauty and spiritual well-being?

Yes, I understand that when it comes down to reality and living life in society, it is all about earning my daily bread and proving myself worthy of doing so, but there are umpteen ways of achieving that. I need not stick to one particular course of action all the the time, because life in general has to offer much more than that. In all my 21 years of life, I have learnt that you can never really predict what could be coming for you in the next moment, and hence all you can really do is live in the now. And if that means pursuing something that your heart is telling you to pursue, then so be it.

Moreover, when you believe in yourself and know that you can achieve something, it does happen if you just have the patience and perseverence to wait for the results. It’s true and I have seen it happen.

Thus, trying out a new field of study is rousing my interest and hope to achieve what I desire, or atleast taking me a step closer to it..

Mass communication and journalism will further allow me to understand and think more about the nature, behaviour and thoughts of people of the world, something which I was hitherto not able to focus upon because of the large amount of theoretical matter that I was having to study. I just feel that I need to further myself in the former direction, because it will make me happier and calmer. How can I not think and contemplate on the thoughts, feelings and actions of other people, those living around me?

So, it is quite justified that I move forward in this particular direction that I am speaking about..

Uncertainty

Uncertainty looms large.

Where I go, what I see, what I think.

No matter what happens, there is that question.

“What next?”

Haunts me at night.

Lying awake with thoughts of an uncertain life ahead.

What to do, what to do…

….oh dear God, save me from myself.

Watching Marvel’s Jessica Jones

It’s really interesting and fortunate that I happened to fall upon watching this particular tv series, thanks to the suggestion of my close cousin sister. In many ways, I really feel like the show was made just for me. For me to watch, I mean.

Firstly, I happen to resemble Jessica’s character a lot. I myself feel like her..she’s so unique, feels the pain, dresses up like a super biker chic and even has a clear conscience, a heart of gold. Why I say this is because she cares for other people and their ultimate well being…even though she feels pretty screwed up within herself. What i’m trying to basically get at here is that she’s fantastic. A fantastic person…as a character and as a role model entirely. And i’m not kidding about it at all. I would actually consider myself to be a follower of hers and go so far as to say that i’m a little bit in love with her.

Jessica, you’re amazing. Peace.

Attending social gatherings

Let’s just say, that in today’s world, it is a part and parcel of our lives to be social, keep meeting people off and on, hang out.

It enriches the mind with new thoughts, fresh ideas about the way the world works and how others think, act outwardly. Without actually knowing people around you, it is hard to create an impression of the world outside your house, your four walls, and the place you take refuge in.

There is undoubtedly a lot to learn about others. You cannot just sit and think that nobody matters in your life, and that it is just you…you alone. It is not like that.

The idea is to take an interest, and basically get to know as much as you can before you say goodbye. The final goodbye, that is.
