Indu Shanmugam is a 20-something, college student from Oregon, USA. She is majoring in English literature and language. She also studied Theology for a short period. She wants to be a teacher. As a literature enthusiast, she enjoys literature of all types and from writers of various backgrounds from the classics, French realists, Christian writings like C.S Lewis and South Asian literature. As for her own writings, "I am still trying to find and develop my own voice." She sees the art of the written word as a way to speak about Christ and explore truth. Before she met Jesus Christ, she has been searching for the meaning of life through experimentation of other religions, philosophies and ideas. At the age of 17, she accepted Christ after a powerful encounter with God through a miracle. God's presence and deep truths in the Bible fuel her creativity. She is involved in church activities and has a love for the church and would like to see every believer grow, become closer to God and live fruitfully. She loves traveling, sipping bubble teas, theatre, music, films and hanging out with friends and has a weakness for cheesecake.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING to everyone. I hope everyone has a good thanksgiving with lots of food, time with others and blessings.
Except for Monday, I have a week off college and work for Thanksgiving. I look forward to spend time with family, friends and most favorite people in the world and eat lots of food. I watched Mom make the turkey last year. It takes all day. I wanted to try it but I don't think anyone would trust me with the turkey. I'm looking forward to it.
I am mastering the art of baking. I like baking pies, cakes and other desserts. I had no work or classes today so I decided to make fudge pecan pie. It's the same recipe as pecan pie with a bit of fudge in the filling. It's yummy and not too sugary.
I'm relieved to have a break before returning to college for finals and then woot, it's Christmas break. It's time to refocus and rejuvenate and be ready for what lays ahead.
