It’s Christmas! And I visit my blog again.

A short update: I have been too busy to really blog in the longest time. That sounds fairly pompous, doesn’t it? ๐Ÿ™‚ It is actually less simple- I just haven’t had anything to write in here. I think I’ve out grown this blog. It needs a makeover.

Talking of which…I finally took a wee step towards baldness. I have blogged before about a compulsive need to shave off my hair, it was one of my Things To Do for when I turned 20. I am now 22, still un-bald, but I did finally just step into a hairdressers and ask them to chop off my hair to less than an inch of its existence. The good lady hesitated, asked me several times whether I was sure (and whether I was trying to be a boy) and I came out with less than an inch of hair on my head. I felt elated, it’s very easy living without much hair. Ofcourse, it took me several days to look in the mirror without seeing a weird face staring back at me, but I am very pleased with the effect now, and intend to keep it.

A few weeks back, on 28th November, actually, I discovered NaNoWriMo, which is the the National Novel Writing Month, an annual event in November. The idea is that you write a novel in a month- you hit 50,000 words in 30 days and feel like super woman because you did! It kind of brings a primal sort of pleasure back into writing- you can weave the silliest story, and feel important while you’re all busy fitting in 1667 words a day!

I’ve also discovered a great way to beat writer’s block or what hits me more frequently these days- writer’s unimagination- free writing sessions! You sit by a notebook or computer for ten minutes every day and lets the day flow out of your fingers. Anything that caught your imagination stays on the paper, and you weave it into storylines. It’s worked brilliantly so far, even though I only did about a week of it. *Makes note to start again tomorrow* I’m very determined to do NaNoWriMo next year, and use my silly plot ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m done with my internship, and I miss it. Anything I will say will under-represent the experience, so I will just say I have come back redder than before and very excited about it. The world makes a little more sense and my scrambled thoughts have stopped zipping around like blind mice on alcohol.

End of update. Christmas cheer to all.

I keep forgetting that u are a girl. Glad u mentioned superwoman. Coz till then, I was wondering what is so special about a boy having only an inch of hair on his head ๐Ÿ˜› My brother usually keeps only 3/4ths ๐Ÿ˜›

U know.. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I came to know about NaNoWriMo in the beginning of 2009 and decided to do it in Nov. But in June n July, I took part in NaBloPoMo and blogged in a marathon of 61 posts in 61 days.

๐Ÿ˜ฆ Only in mid Nov did I realize that I had missed. I even had thought that Id practise for NaNoWriMo in June 09.. but ๐Ÿ˜ฅ nothing happened.
Writer’s block is something I have every day lol!
Good idea u gave though. I am going to blabber stuff too. But I should do it with the intention of not posting. Only then will I be less conscious of what I’m typing.

I’ve had instances where I asked the barber to cut the ends off – and he cut off the wrong ends.

But nice. There’s a distinct lack of girls with short hair. I wonder why.. short hair – or baldness – is so much more convenient.
