February has been a hectic month, and one full of worry-at least the beginning of it-but March promises to be much more fun. I've been putting the finishing touches to my research project ( I'm working on The Bengal Famine) and applying for jobs and being put through grilling interviews. The fun is back in my life as well, but for how long, I don't know. The good thing about being home is not having to stress about every minute detail of my life so I can actually focus on things I enjoy doing too. The interviews are actually quite intimidating, and I know I need to improve on my skills to do better at them, but it's a start and I'm quite happy with it.
One of the joys of my life is my niece Meghna, a beautiful tot with big eyes and a sparkling smile. The owl you see in the blogpost below is for her, and then there's a cat and a fish that I drew for her. It's so exciting to actually have a baby grow up right in front of my eyes, especially such a squishy baby.
I'm also going to get back to blogging. I haven't written in a long while and this is a good time to get back to it. More soon!
