It's The Small Things...

It's The Small Things... - student project



Welcome to the window into my chaotic mind in its cuddled up place over in this corner of the interwebs. I wanted to create a space where I could connect with family, friends, and strangers alike as I ramble about the wonderful twists and turns of this roller coaster we call life.

I’m Kavya Sebastian, a socially average, in-debt insomniac [see also: college student] and professional people-watcher. My head is always up in the clouds as I create endless realms of fiction in my head, and I love bringing down the magic of what I imagine into my world. See, our world is full of enchanting treasures: rainbows stretch out in the skies, the sun sets fire to the horizon before the stars wink their light our way, babies laugh, and the wind caresses our face.

 It’s these small things in life that matter the most. It’s one of the most overused quotes of all time. We hear the words, but do we ever listen to them? Do we ever stop to really process those small things? Those moments that make you smile or want to hug the closest person to you, or even make you put your phone down –gasp!– just for a second. Someone dear to me once said, while I was caught in a mayhem of stress, that in all his years of life, the only words he had to describe life was “crazy beautiful”. It’s simple, really. Cliché, in fact. But this person spoke these words with the purest conviction that I would conquer my dilemma and move on to the next, that I would push through the crazy and find the beautiful. And I did. I was relieved…and then, I was inspired.

It is my greatest passion to spread love and joy and appreciation, and so I want you –in fact, Ichallenge you– to join me on a journey of appreciation for the world we breathe around us and a love for those with whom we share it.
