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
