I'm no artist. Closest I've been to arts was during teenage years when I was writing poetry (was actually pretty good at it!). But I'm more of a science guy: numbers, facts, cause & effect. Even in my hobbies I prefer hobbies like chess and woodworking --> things you need to think about more then you feel.

Someone once told me that you don't know what you're good at or what you like until you try it. And ever since I tried s lot of things and discovered a lot about myself in the process.

Let's talk about drawing & painting, shall we?

4. I'm actually the type who thought drawing was pure talent. I can't draw... my skills are laughable. Ask me to draw a horse and a monkey has a chance of doing a better job then me. BUT... recently I came across a Ted Talk that completely changed my perspective. The guy simply tells some basic tricks to draw cartoonish faces and... guess what: I was able to replicate and did quite a good job! Watch the video and try it yourself. Then create an avatar for yourself and set it as your profile pic. Is it cool or is it cool!

OMG, never knew I could do this! Amazing!
