I was browsing some bookmark diys on youtube when I stumbled upon this genius art style called Zentangle which is nothing but creating figures using repeated patterns. I have a habit of doodling whenever there’s a pen/pencil in close proximity. There need not be paper, many school benches have been decorated by my not so great artistic abilities. So I gave it a try and believe me, it is one of the best things to do during a boring lecture (or many) and just any time you are jobless (or not).


There are many patterns available online that you can use, I picked a few and added some  others to fill a tiny notepad page. This made my day after having to study for exams. It is a good meditative activity which calms you and passes your time like no other. Now I am going to start carrying a notepad just for zentangling.
