I moved to
It was not that the bond lasted forever, but yes there were a few precious ones who I held on to and am still friends with even now. It was good to have someone I could talk to, someone who didn’t share anything in common with you except the willingness to make a friend, someone who listened to you without any preconceived notions, some one who both empathized with you and advised you when needed. Discretion was needed but don’t we need it in real life too?!
In the meanwhile, my dad had got me a digital camera then and I soon caught the photography bug. The likes of Flickr, Picassa, Snapfish allowed me to put up my pictures on the web. These photo-sharing tools helped me exhibit work among many others like me and keep improving on it based on their suggestions. (Pity, I am not clicking that many pictures these days. Exams make you very dull.)
If that wasn’t enough, I thought I needed a blog – my own space. It gave me the freedom of expression and kept the writer in me alive. Over the past 2 years, I have come to realize that no other online tool tells me more about a person than his or her blog!
This seems to be the beginning of the journey. And with time, I know I will find more reasons to be online.
