About the little snowflake

pxbifw3bsdw2ofc

I am Annie, and as my display name goes, I love the idea about snowflakes. Their unique shapes; the rumor that no two snowflakes are the same and the fact that it is a metaphor for humans and their uniqueness – its amazing.

So, I am a 22 year old snowflake and I love art. I would love to draw and draw, anything and everything that catches my eye – but I guess I wouldn’t want to do injustice to those beautiful things; i.e if I ever use my talent-less interest.

Writing had never intrigued me before but reading has, and thus, it is how ended up here – with writing – and here I am, trying to put the words I have learnt into meanings and feelings from my point of view. So simultaneously, I am searching for my own voice. My own way to explain what I see and how I feel about those things.

Besides art and my newly found hobby (writing), I like reading. Mangas, novels, and now, blogs – I cannot live without reading. Its like, breathing after a long dive. Reality is the dive, reading is the breathing. I feel when I read, I forget my own existence. I feel I live outside of me.

I would like to travel one day. To Venice, Tokyo, Istanbul, UK, Australia, France, Finland – woah. And the list grows after reading more!

As you may have noticed (duh) that I have kept my name as snowflake. I chose the one thing that has always been there, which has always made me wonder about existence (review the “metaphor” sentence on para 1) which I’ve always given a second -no third glance to – snowflakes. The only irony in this wonder is that I have never seen real snow in my life – never felt it. Dun dun duuunn. You may laugh at my weirdness now.

I have no talent – not being modest at all here – and I yet have to find my passion. Maybe there lies my talent? I love art yes, but I believe only a mentor will be able to kick out the the passion in me (if the talent or passion exists (or even the mentor)) .

I hope I keep up to this blog! xx

    • Haha thank you! Its just maybe oneday I might get to see snow – maybe if I make it real myself? 🙂
      oh no I have no updates on it! even last month when I posted my last post, I had no idea!
      haha I yearn to see snow! I hope I get to see it as soon as possible! its so beautiful in pictures, and I believe it will be even more beautiful in real! 😀
      Do you live in a place that snows? I am sure it’ll be sunny where ever you live, because here in Dubai, stepping out of the house is like stepping into an oven!

      • Wow, Dubai must be HOT, it looks really beautiful there though. I’m in England, so most of our weather is monochrome skies with rain but that also means that we sometimes welcome snow in the winter months 🙂

      • It is HOT! If it rains here we get surprised – even in the “winters” we have.
        It is beautiful, only when the sun is kind enough 😀
        England – I’ve only seen pictures and movies and it really must be beautiful in real time 🙂

  2. I’ve nominated you for a challenge. I hope you’re not groaning “Not again!” I’m sorry. I forgot i nominated you for Love in Ten Sentences. I seem to do a lot of these challenges, and apparently I’m back at the top of the list of people to nominate, but no sweat. Don’t feel obligated. It’s “Five Photos.

      His amazing camera idea with the microscope was brilliant! Bentley’s passion about the snowflakes is not the only thing I share with him! reading the comments, I saw even his birthday is the same as mine!! 😀
      Thank you for sharing it! I feel like making a post about this (I will! ) 😀

      • Oh i am sorry! I thought it was your about page!:S
        Hahha i know that feeling! I had a theme song from the anime “bleach” as my ringtone and i loved it ! 😀
        Oh do you watch anime or read mangas?

      • I like listening to the japanese too! I learned some random words from there only 😛
        I like reading mangas more though, its just that theres no music or awesome graphics but they are still good 🙂
        So yea! I wanted to recommend to you tokyo ghoul! Its a manga and an anime and it is amazing! though anime season 2 is different from manga, so try it out if you are interested 😀

      • Its an anime? I will try it out! I liked the song! (the music and rhythm basically -although the subtitles help but I have to listen to a song a billion times to actually know it by heart) 😀
        oh, are you into horror genre? try out the anime “another”. I liked it 🙂

      • Nice! thank you I will watch it. I am currently out of animes and mangas (and are waiting for updates) and needed a new one to start so i’ll watch this and amnesia 😀

        You like music a lot huh? you should listen to tokyo ghoul theme 1 opening at least. I love it! 😀

      • Oh Mirai Nikki? I LOVE the opening! of season 1 only though. I am currently watching it and the plot is amazing! and yuno in my opinion (till the episode 14) is very interesting 😀
        We watch something similar 😀
        Please don’t find me creepy but I feel really glad to have found you, a fellow anime watcher. It’s so hard to talk about or recommend to “normal” people anime or manga!

  5. To answer your question above that I missed earlier: yes, if you pay attention and the snow flakes are right you can briefly see individual snow flakes. If you are wearing, for example, a dark coat and if you pay attention you may see the individual flakes landing. They usually melt fairly fast once they contact fabric but it is possible to see them.

    • Its like rain but more beautiful because of the shapes and design (Just using my imagination here – I really would’nt know if it is even 1% like rain)
      Thank you for letting me know this! Wow I wish it miraculously snows here one day (it did in another emirate but it is 2 hours away from my place – not fated enough to see snow i guess ) 😛

  6. Explore your likes even your dislikes and see what that leads you too. You like writing, go explore more. Writing is like digging a well, keep digging till you find the water, the trickle and then the gush. You have much to offer, and no doubt your creativeness will bloom.

    • Yea you are right about exploring what I dislike too. I haven’t thought of that much actually. But the things I like, I am not able to give them as much time as they require it – and that’s how I have ended up still searching for what I would like to do in a long term. I am exploring, ironically from one place only, and through this I have tried to expand the exploration 😀
      I will keep digging ^__^

    • Wow its snowing! 😀
      I heard from a fellow blogger yesterday that they were expecting snow in their country .
      It must be really pretty! like soft, cold (no not wet) cotton right? You are so lucky to see it 😀
      I gues I’d try to lick the snowflakes falling down, and if there is a lot of snow, jump into it and make a snow angel (like in the movies)!
      Thank you for visiting my blog ! Your comment made me really happy -letting me imagine what I would do and how it would feel 😀

      • I find snow to be really pretty. Sometimes it can feel quite dry and light and fluffy and other times wet and heavy. The flakes can be very tiny or can be quite large and fluffy looking. I think it depends on atmospheric conditions. Many people who grew up with it their whole lives do not enjoy it at all, but I think it is beautiful. I would just prefer that my loved ones not be out driving in it if it is a huge storm.

      • I understand that. For example people like architecture, and I’ve grown in a place with A Lot of construction and buildings around the city. Thats why I have always been amazed with the idea of nature, sea, and snow.
        Snow is pretty in pictures – just makes me wonder how beautiful it would be for real.
        Yes I hope your loved ones are safe from the bad side of the snow. I consider you very lucky though 😀
        have you seen snowflakes for real though? their different design or are they really tiny that you can’t see them?

  8. haha, it doesn’t matter if you have seen snow or not. What’s important is the concept and the meaning that you put into snowflakes. So you should stay as a snowflake, and maybe one day you’ll experience it and love it!

  10. I think some people discover their talent much later in life – it’s pretty common. So no reason to despair – just keep on experimenting with everything 🙂 I love the look of your blog with all the snowflakes 🙂 I wonder, where do you come from that you’ve never seen the snow?

    • Experimenting makes me want to do everything in the end ahaha xD
      Thank you for visiting!
      I live in Dubai, near the equator so you can imagine. There had been a very rare 2 minute hail storm a few years ago but it never snows here. In fact, the winters here are no different than summer, the blazing sun is Always out and we just have cold winds -that’s all 😛

  11. I think no one is talent-less, it just takes time to figure out what you’re talented in. I hope that you find it and blogging and reading help 🙂

    • I started liking my name when I figured out the right spelling – it was “aini” when I was a kid and I have no idea why my mom never corrected it :/
      I hope I do – I have tried out knitting, painting, sketching, even board games to see if I had a talent. 21 is too old to find it (according to me), so now I am going to search for my passion. Maybe that is how I end up finding my talent? 😀
      And thank you for reading this! 😀
