It is said, “life always gives you another chance.” Sure, deciding on pursuing studies in Canada really did give me another shot at life! I got back into student life, books and college life after five long years! This new life did help me discover a new me! I not only picked up a new hobby but also got back to my old passion.


The beautiful and scenic country that Canada is, makes you just want to capture every bit of her beauty. This is how I got into photography! Interestingly, I found myself quite good at it. So much so that every place I go, I think about a perfect angle to click! I always loved being photographed, but being behind the camera is a completely different experience. The smile that it brings to people’s faces is something to remember. I wish to continue with my new found hobby and get even better at it. Now my list of “things to buy” has a new addition – a Canon camera!


I have always been an avid reader. But I got into writing after reading umpteen books and with the encouragement from my loved ones. I used to write a lot of short stories and poetry. Somewhere in time I had just stopped writing. I’m more than glad that I have the pen back in my hand with this blogging opportunity! I’ve again started letting my thoughts flow on paper. Writing is the best thing I ever got myself into. It’s a stress buster. It truly works like therapy.

So sometimes you do realize how small things make a happy person. Moreover, your hidden talents do surface in some form or another. It’s never too late to rediscover and rejuvenate yourself!
