Percy Jackson. The multi dollar character.

A month back I finished the last Percy Jackson book in the Heroes of Olympus series – The Blood of Olympus- Ever since that I’ve been missing the cocky, funny, brave boy. What do you do when you miss a character? You read the books again. So I went back to book one in the Percy Jackson Series and I’m already on book two. Rereading books is not strictly productive, but my! Rick Riordan knows to write a good story.
Percy as a person is great. He is a mixture of everything you would like to read in a character. Being a demi-god, a son of Poseidon, he has a kick ass personality. 
10 things you learn from Percy.

1.       You could be born with all the powers in the world, but it takes courage to make full use of those powers. 

2.       You cannot always be a hero. Sometimes, it is right to step aside. 

3.       Believe in your principles. 

4.       Stand up for your friends. See the strength in them too. 

5.       Find a girl like Annabeth XD

Annabeth who initially dislikes Percy because he is son of the Sea God and Poseidon isn’t exactly on good terms with Athena, learns to team up with Percy and to look beyond the tainted relation their parents share.

6.       Family is important.

7.       The monsters are going to keep coming. Don’t accept defeat. 

8.       Stay funny.

9.       Being impulsive is okay sometimes as long you know it isn't going to affect anyone else. 

 10 .   Finally, the lesson all super heroes teach.
With great powers come great responsibilities. (Spider-man should have patented this)

 Have you read Percy Jackson?

Plant/animal life = significance humans give human life.

I've been wanting to publish a new post but I scrapped every attempt that I wrote in the last few days. I finally landed on this today morning!

Few days back...

my college put us to “community service” asking us to de-weed this small area behind the college building which is always over-grown with grass and weeds, except for a single foot trodden path. After the initial complaints and grumbling, we set to work, our hands reaching out to the plants and yanking them mercilessly out of the damp mud.
There was confusion in insect world as the tiny beings woke up to the unpleasant late morning. What was happening to their home? What monster was making the green cover disappear?  Even though it was just weeds, we felt guilty de-rooting the plants. Some of us were careful to completely pull the root out and not leave a painful snapped steam.
And the insects! Insects of all kinds were fluttering around; crickets and grasshoppers jumped about and some even launched themselves at us. When we found a fascinating looking creature, we gathered around, observed, and finally let them go off into the “wild”. (No, we did not feed them)
At the end of this sweaty, slightly unlikable yet not one to forget session many of us were in consensus about
Plant/insect life = the significance humans give human life
We didn’t see big animals, no exotic birds or creatures, just the normal yet variety of bugs and butterflies living in the backyard. We were all fascinated nonetheless. We saw colors in the tiny hidden weed flowers, nature’s delicate work in the stance of a slender grasshopper, family in a group of caterpillars, the amazing co-habitation of plant/insect life.
We, human beings, put ourselves on top of the food chain and treat ourselves with some special reverence. Looking at those insects, which really weren’t doing anything much like building the Taj Mahal or landing on moon, I realized that reverence is undeserving. We wouldn’t be on top of the food chain if these insects hadn’t made way for us. In a weird twisted way (even when I will continue killing mosquitoes or spiders and run away from big lizards) I’m grateful to them for existing. They are ugly but very beautiful.

Pencil sketches!

I thought I'll share someone of my drawings on here seeing as I haven't done it before. Also, I'm out of blog post ideas. XD

It started with this kid! I never knew I had it in me for pencil sketching until I sat down to draw this baby.
I did this pup for my Cousin for her birthday!
I kinda got obsessed with animals! Xd

Probably my favorite! I named him Ellie! Because once upon a time I had this dream where I had a horse and I had named him Ellie.

This is baby me.

Again, for a friend's birthday! I think my friends have more of my drawings than I do!

I really love close ups! I love working on a drawing that brings out the expressions!
So, yes. :D
What do you guys think?
