Finally.. After a gap of almost two months, I am writing a post. This whole year has been non-productive for me in terms of writing. There is no excuse for this. My reading habit was responsible for my writing. I used to read a lot. For instance, If I was standing near dustbin(or rather overflown dustbin) and I had nothing to do, I would pick a paper from dustbin and start reading. Sounds crazy.. I can imagine in a place far far away, a dust bin full of paper waiting for me. I wish I could go there…
My primary source of reading was and is internet. I still read stuff from Wikipedia. Whats missing is the posts in blogs. I find it difficult to open my Google reader which must have gained weight by now. There were days when we used to exercise together, regularly. Daily exercise keeps you fit and fine and slim. I could see him punching in my face with only one word coming from the mouth.. Shame.. Shame.. Shame.. Yeah. It is unaware of the fact that I am a shameless person.
The second source are books. Sometime back I took a pledge that I will read at least two books a month. I lost this habit a couple of months back. Books have always been my best friend. The only thing I can trust blindly(Though I can’t read with my eyes closed). Irrespective of how good or bad a book is, it ends up adding\aiding my knowledge. Most of the times it adds words into my vocabulary. The last two months, my habit of reading books is getting some life. Read three books so far.
Every blogger has his days. These are not mine. Over the years I have also realized that reading is similar to lying. The more you practice the better you get at it.
Till I write my next post..
It’s the fifth month of this year. I am reminding this to myself. It’s just because time seems to be flying and I am unable to catch him. For the last six days I had no problems actually with my connection or anything else that could stop me from blogging. The result is different though. I haven’t blogged and never felt like. This is the time that comes in every bloggers life.
Earlier I had weekends which acted like my thought gathering time. I used to write synopsis, gather facts and material required for blogging. Movies also add to this. But the problems has been this weekends. I am not free on these weekends. Either I have to attend some function or marriage else I have the gang waiting for me to join for a roller coaster ride of fun.
The other days of the week are wasted by my job. Those with a job where you have to stand for the whole day in the sun will know what happens to the thinking power. I am unable to think and create things as I used to earlier. This job is improving my professional career but it’s spoiling my blogging. No one would ever choose blogging over career.
Reading is not going well also. Books I bought for reading are lying in their places from the day I bought them. Google reader is showing a counter which will take a long time to come down to zero. All I expect from my readers is to have some patience for a while. I think I will be getting some time in coming time. :angel:
Till that time comes
Reading is an exercise. It’s like a work out for your brain. We are humans and we give much value to what we look like. So we exercise to get some muscle, six packs, eight packs and all that stuff. In the process we forget the thing which drives whole body. You know it, but you don’t give a damn. I don’t want to look like a geek or someone call me bookish.
Right from our childhood, we hate books. They are big turn offs. when you are out of the studies, you realize the importance of books. You wish you read at least you syllabus books. Now when you want to read you don’t have time. This is the situation with many. You get time to watch a porno, go to a club or just sleep. But no time for the books.
Exactly opposite to this, there are peoples who read a lot of books. That is good. In fact great. They are called Readers. Often they develop a taste of books. Here comes the bad thing. They try to impose their taste on you. You’ll fall for this as you think he is a good reader and has good knowledge about books. It’s not necessary that you’ll like what he likes. You may get frustrated by the book and won’t read ever again.
So what can you do in such a situation? It’s better that “YOU” do not to develop of taste. Read anything and just anything you get. Slowly it’ll become a habit and you’ll love reading. I did that. I always want people to read. Even if I know a book is bad, I stay away from making a comment. At the same time whatever others say, If I want to read a book I read it.
This exercise called reading not only trains your brain but increases your knowledge. This gives you a chance to show off at times. :angel:
Here I am again with some of the best posts I read in last week. The first one is Matrick Pass Donkey. I don’t have to tell you guys that I love the humor touch given to blog posts. This post is another example. The author tells us about his experience of passing Matrick. How he had a crush on teacher when he was six :love: , The various types of roles he use to play, Practicals of Newtons third law. He also mentions the teachers he liked (and didn’t liked) which I really liked. Hardly anyone mentions teachers. Now I got a post coming on this.
Next post is the second part of a featured post in my last Tuesday readings. This is The Secrets of Developing Creative Thinking Skills : Part 2. I knew that second part will be good. I was right. Post starts with a quote by George Bernard shaw and that itself is sufficient for you to go on with the reading. Very nicely chosen quote with good use of links. Author also tells us very simple things to develop thinking skills. To be frank out of the five things he mentioned I already follow the first four. Seriously I write on any paper and keep any piece of paper with something to read on. I can’t follow the last part as it’s difficult to get such people. I got one friend recently with whom I am sharing my thoughts and he is doing the same. Continue reading →
All those who are literate and know to write posses something called handwriting. This is made up of some lines and curves which form a symbol called letter. This is important for a language to spread. Although some languages have common letters, the meaning may not turn out to be same.
With the ascent of computers, the handwriting is loosing it’s charm. Whatever we do now is by typing. The old documents are also being turned into soft or digital copies with help of data entry jobs. Especially this is happening with government documents. They are getting digital and easy to find.
I have unique handwriting. At first look you’ll come to know that and you won’t forget it. It is one of it’s kind. It’s messy. I wished someone should have slapped me in my school days for my handwriting so that I can have good handwriting. If not good then at least better. Being an Engineer I many times feel ashamed of my handwriting. But then it’s unique. Continue reading →
