Known for my laidback and chilled out attitude, I have always believed in making the most of life. I am candid, talkative and not your usual girl next door. With aspiration too big for these tiny eyes, I am looking to grow that perfect pair of wings which can help me visit the places I have only dreamed of. I am a blend of contradictions, an oxymoron in myself as you will find me splurging insanely on ridiculous stuff and the very next moment, I will sit outside my balcony and ponder on what life truly is. The wayward mind is often at crossroads, but then I trod the path that suits the mood. Being with too many friends who have relationship woes, I am now a pro at helping people sort out the mess life often becomes.
