We have to make new year resolutions. You know why? Assume you are a shooter. Not the Olympic Gold medal shooter. But the one who learned to shoot at the wild boar heading towards you. Now, You’ll have to aim at the boar and shoot. You may miss a couple of shots but eventually, You’ll end up shooting the boar. But if you shoot without aiming, In no time the wild boar will send you flying. And that’s why my friend, You need to aim. You must have certain goals or else the wild boar (Read Life) will send you flying.
Duh.. Two repeated sentences. But I’ll keep it that way.
So here are my resolutions for this year. I am not sure if I’ll succeed in it but I’ll make an honest attempt.
1) Take at two trips traveling alone.
I already find it hard to organize a trip with multiple variable. Most of those variable would produce an erroneous result. So it’s best to be the only variable in the equation.
2) Read more. 24 books this year.
I am not a voracious reader. But I love to read. Last year I set a target of 12 books and achieved it. (Yayyy!!!) This year, I am going to double that. I am pretty confident that I can achieve this.
3) Make new friends.
Not just Facebook friends. But those with whom I can hang out. In real life. The problem is, Most of my friends are now married and inaccessible. That makes me really uncomfortable as I always had company of my friends whenever I wanted. I am selfish here and I think I have to.
4) Start giving back
It’s high time I start giving back to the “society”. And while doing that, I need to make sure I don’t bloat about it.
That’s it. Four is enough. And for all the concerned and non concerned, Sorry.. But marriage is not on the list.
“He achieved another milestone.”
You hear such sort of statements after someone achieves something or someone succeeds in something. This something differs from person to person but the statement remains the same.
“And he is crossing milestones one after another.”
A question arises is why milestones only?? Do you know the reason??
Milestones are easy to get. You find them at every one mile distance. In international units its roughly 1.6 Km.When we achieve a milestone there is lot of hard work involved in it. We have the sweat dropping hours of work. Well the sweat dropping thing is not for the chefs and the ones related in food industry. You may get fired for dropping sweat there.
The hard work we do cannot be compared to milestone. Milestones come every mile and they are easy to get. Unlike the success we get. It’s not everyday that we taste success. It’s a luxury. Comparing success to milestone is just not the respect and honor for the person’s work. Do you think success is like a milestone?? It always appears after every mile that we travel?? At least don’t include me in that list.
So what’s the alternative word for this? There is no perfect one. But I guess there’s a need to find for an English word. May be I am just not aware of the word.
Till you reach another milestone…
Time machine has always been a fantasy. Thousands of fictional books have been written on this topic and still many more to come. Same is with movies. The classic Back to the future series is the best example I can give at this moment. Although movies on this subject are dried up they will not stop. There will be more in future. This is one fantasy which all will love to come true. Well.. I have good news for you then.
Here is a smart guy named João Magueijo from Portugal who found a great breakthrough. Almost all of us know that light travels at 3 lakh kilometers per second. (If you don’t know then you bunked your science classes. You may skip this post as it may not turn out interesting to you.) But this guy thinks that the speed of light varies. Due to this Einsteins theory will go in vain. This means we can travel with speed of light.
We will be able to travel in space, solve the mystery of black holes and travel through time. Forget about first two, What will you do if you can travel between times? I have many things to do there. Erasing some bad memories will help. But I don’t want to erase all of them. I would love to visit my grandma. I miss her a lot. I would like to transfer Microsoft, Google, Yahoo on my name at the time of their launch. I would also love to hold bush straight when the reporter throws shoes at him.
Many of you will travel in your future first so as to secure it. I would travel into my back life. There were many happy moments which I would love to visit again and enjoy again. Some silly fights which I want to correct. Why should I worry about the future which I haven’t seen??(That’s a mandatory question. Otherwise it means a lot.) Time machine will solve many of my problems.
So I’ll repeat again the same question? what will you do if you have time machine?
As for the Sunday, I had decided to sleep till 10am and then carry on with my projects. But things never go the way I plan. Hindrance is usual now. Not worried much about working in evening or night for personal work. What hurts is waking up early, very early on Sundays. I woke up at 5:15am. ;-(
Reason was a religious ceremony. This occurs every year and once in a year. All those who have same surname as my gather at a temple 20km away from my home. Most likely this event gathers a crowd of 50-60 peoples. Earlier it was much more than this. We gather, have some chat, sometimes even play. This event brings us closer.
After preparing and working much for the event, I’ve become too tired. I thought of taking a leave. Nevermind. I’ll get it next time. For now I’ll get some rest and sleep well.
Traveling by bus is fun. Not just bus but take any public means of transport. I can’t say about luxury travel. That is because I have never traveled in such. My traveling is mostly by bus. So I can tell you it’s really fun. You get to see many new people and strange people whom later on you can blog about. 😆 I get to see many of these. I have not started blogging about these different peoples. So I’ll start today.
Charity begins at home. Please don’t come to my house asking for this. I am not always available for this. So as I said charity begins at home let’s begin with me. I am, I was and I will always be different. Today I confirmed this. This incidence that happened is a small one and almost neglected by anyone. Since my eyes always keep looking for something, I couldn’t afford to neglect this.
Like everyday, I had to rush to the stop to catch my bus. Fortunately I was early and more fortunately I got a seat. That was a good start for the day. Just at the time of leaving an old woman entered the bus. A typical old woman in India is a bit fat and short. So she was one of them. Unfortunately for her all seats were full. Normally I am a good boy and I give my seat to old peoples. Not today. Continue reading →
