When Potter and I decided to have a blog I was super excited about it. I was excited to share my experience and I also thought it would keep me in practice of writing. It’s not like I’ve been writing essays or anything. Sometimes you realize that a picture is sufficient enough to share your thoughts.
However so far I have realized that the real experience is in reading someones else’s blog and being able to relate to it or hear their opinions which sometimes are very different, but not wrong. Being involved in someones life who you wouldn’t have otherwise known, or simply just listening to their side of the story and may be even questioning their perspective.
And the real joy is not just in publishing a post, but in reading the comments of your readers, and listening to their side of the argument.
It is not just in sharing from which I, as a blogger, get the joy. But it is in listening to the stories and perspectives of people who I will possibly never know. And that is the real ‘Blogging Experience’.
Okay so remember my post about the army base thing? That basically happened when we were on a school trip..a lot of crazy shit happened there. For instance, I damaged my vocal cords because of all the screaming but lets not get into that! What I do want to talk about however, is The List.
So I bet you have a bucket list? It may not be a really proper one but you have a vague idea in your head, right? Well, anyhow my friends and I finally started working on ours and after that process started I’ve been finding myself on travel websites and all those blogs that talk about new and amazing experiences because I just want to add it all to the list and hence not miss out on anything at all.
Our list is insane. It has stuff like robbing a bank, learning to con people, hell..we even added discovering unicorns! But it also has those real things. The one’s a lot of us our dying to accomplish. Stuff like a road trip around Europe (can’t wait for that one!) or something as silly as getting into a bar fight. Ever since that talk about our List started we haven’t been able to stop. And I can’t wait to begin. I shall very soon.
Well, the point of this post was that make a list. Make lists. They keep you creative. They lead you to your goals and they keep you occupied because the first step of accomplishing anything is deciding what you want to accomplish, what your goal really is.
I’m not asking you to go all YOLO and stuff..I’m just asking you to jot down things that are really important. Times running out so you better get going.
Oh and remember to add a few lame things on the list..because believe it or not accomplishing one thing somehow gives you hope that you’ll be able to do all the others. The bigger ones. The scarier ones.
I’m dying to know what’s on your list! Please don’t forget to comment.
PS: The robbing the bank thing and the bar fight thing may suggest we have violent and criminal tendencies. But I promise you my friends are the nicest people ever. We wouldn’t hurt a fly.
PPS: Okay maybe not that nice also. But we’re good kids.
So before you understand what this post is about you might want to take a quick look at this post first:

Anyway, now that you have read it (which you hopefully have), I would just like to tell you that it I believe it worked! I literally was ready to drop physics because I got a C in my first term and I was so very unhappy with it. But this time in my Half Yearly Examinations I did not only score well, but I scored the 2nd highest in my grade in Physics. This came off as a great surprise to me and I went sky high. I WAS ON TOP OF THE WORLD! Mainly because I was literally expecting a 60%. And FYI, I got 84% which is an A and 86% was the highest.
Not trying to show off here, just saying.
Now I don’t know whether it was this whole ‘Lying to myself’ thing that had just worked. It may or may not be. The truth could just be that I had suddenly woken up, and worked my ass off for this. And perhaps this whole ‘Lying to myself’ thing played a small part. It can also be that I’m just giving credit of my hardwork to some theory which I thought would work, and apparently I believe it did. I don’t know if all of it was just me
and my awesomeness or not. But I am just very happy.
If you want something very badly, truly from your heart, then the whole universe will make sure that you get it. ON TOP OF THE WORLD. PHYSICS FTW.
PS: Please understand that I’m not encouraging any one reading this to try this theory out because it may just be false. At the end of the day we need to understand that only hardwork pays off.
PPS: I give all the credits to Potter for introducing me to the whole ‘Lying to myself’ theory thing. I love you bro.
I sit down before my laptop. I’m just bored. I stare at the WordPress page and I’m just like “What the hell do I blog about?”. Then I decide not to. Then after receiving million reminders and threats from Weasley I sit down again. This time I’m motivated. Still totally blank with a collection of zero ideas but I’m motivated.
Then I decide I must choose a thing to write about and here I am…venting about how I lack inspiration. Thanks for being patient. It must kill you to wait for me to finally arrive at the point. Don’t worry I’m almost there.
So I was reading some totally awesome and totally amazing quotes. I do that all the time. I love smart people and hence things smart people say. So Anyhow, the thing being I started to think about what makes a quote quotable? What makes it so cool? So awe inspiring.
That’s when I realized. The greatest quotes are the most real.They are the most relatable. We read them to discover what we already know but It’s only put out there more beautifully. We know the feeling, and we feel the emotion they portray. It just feels smarter and more comfortable to understand it when when somebody else says it..because great quotes are often based on taking that risk we fear.
The question here is whether that’s the right way to accept our own thoughts. Is it that important to fit in.To feel right? To belong?
Now that’s the thing about great quotes. We all understand them but differently. We feel them differently but somehow in the same way. That’s probably why the only thing we have in common as humans is those few emotions. The one’s we feel differently. The one’s that make us feel secure. The one’s that make us belong.
So I have this theory where I believe that authors just want me to cry and live in pain. Why do I say so?
Well, Let’s see….. Because they kill everyone I F***ING LOVE. I believe their thought process goes pretty much like this: Oh look at this lovely character which everyone is going to adore… LETS KILL IT!
I’m sure most of you out there have experienced this kind of torture. For example take the last book I read, The Fault In Our Stars. The last few chapters, I sobbed and sobbed and sobbed and I just couldn’t stop because he killed Augustus Waters! HE EFFING KILLED HIM! I tried so hard not to cry, and for some reason I was so sure I would not cry when he died. But FUUUUUUUUUU….
I believe that writers have to cause some kind of pain to their readers so they feel completely satisfied. And I know that this they don’t do it purposely but writers seriously need to stop causing me pain.
Kill me now,
P.S: This post was written when I was in a post-TheFaultInOurStars-trauma and I just couldn’t help myself so I may sound a bit frustrated.
Happy 2014 guys!
Anyhow, do you have a resolution? I mean I don’t. I will probably come up with something eventually..I mean there is a lot of scope for me changing in someway or accomplishing a big target.
I do, however want a few things from this year. A few things from myself too.
I hope this year gives me a lot of opportunities and I want to be alert and courageous enough to take them.
I hope this year forces me out of my comfort zone (occasionally). I wish to be brave enough to meet the challenge.
I hope this year allows me to experience some things I must. I also hope I enjoy most of them.
I hope this year gives me to experiment. To do awesome things, great things and sometimes lame and stupid ones too. I wish I’m smart enough to not repeat the stupid ones.
I hope this year helps me to get to know my friends better. I wish to put myself and my selfishness aside to actually accomplish this.
I hope this year blesses me with lots of more followers and makes our blog really incredible! I pray to God that I’m able to retain these followers and give them something to look forward too. Unlike posts like these (wink!)
I hope this year gives YOU whatever you try really hard for. Stay hopeful and patient. I’m convinced it will.
Live. Laugh. Love.
