Not Even For a Day!

I wait for you,
Wait for you to come along,
this lane where i sit alone.
A test of time, a test of mind,
I wont be afraid.
But please do not go far away, not even for a day!

I close my eyes and dream,
dream of what we are, so my heart knows,
To wait for you.
Your face so pure , so clear,
like a flawless picture.
The thought of you will keep me alive,
as i wait for you,
wait for you to come along.

I remember the day,
Oh! Never have i been struck,
struck by love so sweet, so sudden.
You stole my heart away.
My face turned pale, my feet refused to walk away,
and everything seemed to turn to clay.
I lost track of time.
My night turned to day.
You made everything seem so simple, so beautiful!

Now, I wander mazily across the streets,
waiting for you, hoping to see your shadow- my reflection.
For I know your shadow would never fade into the crowd.
 So, my heart left its dwelling place,
and can return no more!!
So, please do not go far away, not even for a day!

Missing You

I fall asleep every night with tears in my eyes,
every passing moment I realize I love you more.

Sometimes I mistake your truth for lies.
I have been hurt before, and your faith I must learn to trust.
I should know by now,
that you would love no one but me.

I sit alone..smiling at the memories we created,
listening to love songs from my favorite bands.
knowing that you are there waiting for me.

The summers will be long,
but the longing in my heart wot change.
and everyday i would wake up to me....
Missing You!

Forever Till The End!

Your heart so pure and clear,
Big like the sea,
so big to fit me.
All my senses come to rise,
when your love finally arrives.
My mind is clear,
my heart responds,
For i feel love in your every word!

I wish my one kiss would make you feel at bliss.
When i hold you, i want to you far.
Far with me to a land you please!
Let me close to you,
Let me give you happiness,
let me be your life.

When you are there, i breathe a whole new air.
when i look in to your eyes,
i see your love, so clear.

I want to love you like none other.
I want to be pure and true to you.
For you are the reason i smile.
Without you life would not have been worthwhile.

Your touch, your kiss, it makes me sing.
I know this is why i am living!
You are my angel, my only angel.

You are the true reflection of love.
You walked with me through it all.
Through the pain, through the sadness,
love kept us one.
and forever one we will be.

This is my promise to you,
That with all my heart i will love you!

Writer's Block!

I do not know if a lot of writers go through this,  but for quite sometime for me at least it has been a situation that whenever I crave to write and want to from deep within, I sit down in front of a book and a pen to start writing what I want to and absolutely nothing comes out. I do not know if this happens to everybody. but it sure is happening to me.

Maybe it is because there is a lot of things running around in my mind like butterflies in my stomach on a big day. When I actually take time off from all the things that is happening around me, and sit down to write or pour my heart out on paper, that is when the talent I have been gifted with decides to take a hike or hibernate, because I just go blank.

It is probably me and my very occupied mind with everything else other  than writing that deprives me of the one pleasure that I have- Writing.

So I consulted my friends and they told me that it is natural to have a block where you just do not know what to write or what to think or even as hard it may be to believe.. what to do!

It can be because your heart or mind is filled with so many emotions that you are confused or just lost as to what to put down on paper because then it would just be a mixture of emotions and an unsuccessful article!

People do not know this, but putting words down on paper can be really hard, especially when you want to make an impact on people and make them feel what exactly you are writing about.

So if people take you for granted and push you to write articles or tell you that you have lost your talent and writing was just a phase. I am here to tell you that you should not give up because whoever writes , it is in them. They know that and they do not need people to tell them otherwise.

A good friend told me "Do not wait for inspiration to hit you, instead you will know when you have to write. Do not force yourself. When it comes. it is there for sure!"

All I have to say is do not give up. It takes time to make things perfect, but time is exactly what you need to make an impact!

Daddy I Love You.

When I was a kid, i would look up to you
I would hold your hand and follow you.
the fun we have had, the times we have shared,
you showed me how much you cared.

When I grew up, I understood more,
I realized how important you were.
You taught me patience,
you taught me kindness,
you taught me care,
and when I wanted to feel loved, you were always there!

You thought I did not hear,
 you thought I did not care,
the lessons and experiences you shared.
But, daddy, I heard everything from the start,
and kept it deep within my heart!

With your push and your praise,
a beautiful woman you have raised.
You will always be the man of my heart,
who loved me from the very start.

Every time I hear voice, I feel calm in my heart.
I feel safe knowing you are there for me.

I admire your strength,
I admire your courage.
You are my rock.
My guiding light when I am low.

Forever and ever daddy I love you.
You are my HERO!

Designing a Logo Is not Easy as You Think!

I was talking to my cousin the other day and he was frustrated at how the clients would pester him about the logo of their company each and every hour of the day. Companies or organizations need to realize that designing a logo is not done within a day. On the contrary, it takes a lot of thinking, creativity, talent, a lot of hard work, patience, and skill to pull off a successful logo or design. A logo is not done at the wink of an eye. many clients are unaware of what really goes into a successful design. 


First, the graphic artist needs to understand what exactly the company is into, why does the company require a new design, what message should be sent to the people when they see a logo and the list goes on.  


well, for those who do not know, this is the process. 


BRAINSTORMING. 
This is the phase where the graphic artist plays with his mind and creativity. He bounces back and forth with the numerous ideas in his head. First, the thoughts are in his head and then these thoughts are put across to the client. This is to develop a sort of direction. At this stage, it is usually determined if they want a illustrative logo, a simple mark. customized marking, a word mark or a mascot.  


PRELIMINARY SKETCHING. 
With all the above information running in the artist's mind, he hits the sketch pad, hoping to come out with crazy designs that would stun the client and stand out in the industry. For a graphic artist, ideas tend to come at the weirdest of times or at the craziest of places (well, at least for my cousin). the artist draws with shapes, letters, anything that would work as a unique business identity. It is after this that they work on the Adobe Illustrator to perfect their "conceptual doodles". This is the part that requires a lot of time.  


INITIAL LOGO DRAFTS.
This is honestly the only part a client really cares about. However hard it is for the client to hear it, so be it. Fact remains, they do not care how it is done. They just want it done . The graphic artist creates a project page (private URL) for the client where they can monitor the progress and status of the project. All concepts are presented here along with all revisions and modifications. this is where knowledge and creativity of the design comes to life and yields benefits. This is where they get the clients feedback. Probably the second most important part of the entire design process. 


REVISING AND MODIFYING. 
This is where the clients give their opinions on what changes are to be made , if necessary. The changes are then made to the design to satisfy the client. 


FINALIZING. 
Once the logo is chosen, this is where the payments are made. Once the deliverables are in the clients hand, the artist also walks the client through the printing process, plus informs them of the several different file formats and where and how they should be used.  


Well, there you go. Now one can understand how hard it is to design a logo. 


For my cousin, animation and art are a part of his blood. It is what he lives for ( well first is obviously GOD). It is his life and doing this is what gives him immense pleasure and satisfaction(for him I guess its his adrenaline rush). When he is at it, the whole world around goes mute. He is in his own zone. I am so proud of you,Jeo and how much effort you put through for every piece of work that you have done. I hope whoever hires you to do their logo just believes you and gives you your space to be you and doodle off to glory!!

To My Best Friend

So this took a really long time to write. but though it is still a little rusty.  It is for you. I also know that these words are not enough. But it is a start !

A friend is a person,
I laugh and cry with,
my inspiration, my true person.
a helping hand you will always give,
a ear to hear, and a hug so dear.

You know my secrets, you know my fears,
you tell me what is right from wrong.
You hold me so close to you,
that i feel alone when i am apart.
You never stopped having faith in me,
even if you stopped believing in yourself.
you have never let me down.
you gave me a shoulder to cry on, a hand to wipe my tears,
and a smile to wash away my fears.

A friendship, a pact that we treasure,
a gift so rare , and so precious.
I would cling on to in till my last breath.

Through laughs and fights,
through tears and joy,
through love and hate,
through all this, I knew we would be just fine,
because in my heart I knew you were mine!

This friendship will not end.
Through it all we will stand.
Through all the rights and all the wrongs,
by your side is where I stand.
I am here to be your best friend
Cause i love you, and i know you do too.

For looking past my ego, and my flaws.
For being with me from start to end.
For all the times we have spent.

I LOVE YOU FOR BEING MY BEST FRIEND! (shouting it out =D )

Caffeinated.Cuttinks = Awesome!!!



Caffeinated.Cuttinks are stories thats Jeffy Mathew Thomas brings to you through ink. Crazy, amazing art that he does has shown and proven him to be a very, and I must say VERY talented person.

How do I know Jeffy Mathew Thomas?
Well, to start off, he is my brother. I know, for a fact, that he has put in his hard work, love, passion, time and thought to what he draws. Each piece of his tells a different story. I am a proud owner of one of his pieces, and looking at it now, makes me realize how gifted he is.

The first time my brother showed me one of his pieces, I was stunned. There was so much detail and effort put into his work. For a minute, did not even believe it was his.

The thought process that goes behind each of his pieces, I must say is unbelievable. A gift that he was blessed with - ART!

If you do not believe what I am saying, you can check it out for yourselves.
Go on to facebook, which I am sure everyone has an account in. type caffeinated ink (community) where the pictures of his pieces have been put up. It is PURE AWESOMENESS!
Here is a link to the page on facebook.

I am proud to be his sister. I hope he gets everything he has ever dreamt of. i wish him all the success.

MA -A TRIBUTE

My love , my guide,
my nurturer, my inspiration.
You made me so beautiful,
to be the who i am today.
You held me with love and kindness,
you touched me with love.
you taught me to live, to love.

I dream of you, singing with those lovely lips, those beautiful melodies. Memories that would be cherished for all eternity

when I think of you, i feel happy proud to have had an amazing MOTHER who has been by my side through every step of my life.Though you are not here in flesh today, you are there in my heart, right there where you belong.
I still hear you talking to me, guiding me, inspiring me, telling me what to do.
You have touched every person's heart who you have known. Not a day have i seen hatred in your eyes.

I still remember those days when i used to run to your bed and crawl up next to you and sleep because i was scared. You would tuck me in with you and hold me tight till morning, protecting me.

You showed me love i have never seen before. You taught me that nothing was impossible and that whatever comes your way must be seen as a challenge.
One of the bravest person's i have come across. even through your sickness in health, you smiled like you had no worry in the world. You smiled like everything was ok, you would laugh a thousand genuine laughs.

INCOMPARABLE, PASSIONATE, BRAVE, STRONGEST PERSON i have ever come across.

if anyone asked me who my role model was. I would not hesitate to say - MY MOTHER. If i had a chance to ever be like someone, i would choose undoubtedly to be like YOU.

I Love you MOM <3
you will be in my heart forever.

Living it "the way God intended " style.

Being brought up in a christian family from birth, I knew there was someone who had total control over my life. when i was a kid, i used to ask God to tell dad or mum to buy me chocolates, when they did not buy them for me. As I grew older things what i asked for got more intense and complicated. One of which was, to grow more in His Name and to grow up the way He wants me to grow up.

And i am proud to say, i have been growing in His Name, at least trying to. there have been moments when i would blame Him for things that happened wrong in my life or for things i did not get. When i did blame Him, He would always tell me to be patient, and that He has everything planned for me. and i have not given up that faith because i know that "nothing, and when i say nothing i mean NOTHING is impossible when God has control over your life".

One lesson i have learnt is to be faithful in whatever i do, wherever i am, whoever i am with. DO NOT LOSE FAITH.

He has been my first love and will always be, my guidance, my confidant, my inspiration and mainly MY PERSON.

When times are tough, do not give up, He is there. When you feel like the world around you is turning upside down,  do not give up. When you feel left out, do not give up. If you feel everything is just not going your way, do not give up. This is why :

HE HAS NOT GIVEN UP ON YOU... AND HE IS NOT GOING TO START GIVING UP.
HAVE FAITH.

I am..

Im Jenny. A small town girl with big dreams, happy endings, and a red carpet life. But that surely never happens. So i live life how it can be lived best (at least according to me). Born and brought up in Bahrain, which is in the Gulf. But if you still have not figured out where it is, look at the world map, I am sure you would not miss the tiny little dot next to Saudi Arabia :). From Kozhencherry, Kerala which i am sure you all would not be surprised, considering every second person you meet is a malayalee.
Crazy, fun, Jumpy, I would not hesitate to let go off a chance that makes me smile with all my heart.
I came to Bangalore, after living my entire school life in Bahrain. I did an integrated course of BBA-MBA from The Indian Institute of Planning and Management. I must say, fastest college life one could ask for, but at the same time I learnt a lot. being independent was one of them.

Love reading, has a passion for writing, loves art ( inspired by my brother), plays basketball, and football. Oh and yes, love listening to music and watching television (well who does not).

till later
