The most exciting thing that happened recently was Disney buying "Star Wars". Disney Movies inspire and motivate me. I look at the greener sides of life after watching them. Some rare occasions, I feel I am living them.
Social Media is a great development in past few years. Internet bridges the gap in geographies by it's plethora of applications and social media. Social Media leads to form communities and trigger friendships. Now, "friends" are tagged as the one's who tweet, ping, comment or reply to us on the web. My question is who are our true friends in this miasma?. Honestly, even I don't know but I have a small story that led me to my best friend.
- Get a Wallet
- Avoid crowded buses
- Learn good lessons from minor incidents
Lunch break in school was another games period. Most of the kids would gobble their lunch in minutes and run to the field. In high school, break was the time to quickly complete that pending assignment and In under grad it became the rat race to mess to get a hot meal.
When I was in 8th grade I was gifted a bag by some random relatives. It helped me bear my luggage as a beast of burden in school (Too many books :P). It's secret pocket was a haven for my pokemon tazos in school. It was my only companion when I cycled 15Km to college once. During engineering, it soothed my melancholy filled bus journeys by being my stuffed animal. I carried it twice with me through my treacherous journey to shabari mala. I really liked that bag, It was one of my favourite possessions. I have been attaching myself random objects and I was overly attached to this bag. Sadly, the bag started giving away after 7 years and I was forced (by parents) to let it go for good. I was angry and frustrated because I felt they didn't understand me (Neither did I). After many pointless arguments, I lost patience and gave it up…….
They say school is your second home, To to me it is much more than that. Two important lessons i learnt were.
I was told by my Science teacher in fourth grade .. “Your thoughts become your actions, Your actions become your habits and your habits turn to your character.. So Think good”.
I started commuting by bus in my eleventh grade to college. I had to catch around 2-3 buses in transit for each journey. I would spend about 2-2.5 hrs travelling daily and being xenophobic it was an extra burden to have people invade my personal space but eventually i got used to it. I learnt to enjoy this solitude I experienced in the crowd. Strangely, No matter how early I left for college, I would find myself rushing between transits and just make it on time to avoid being locked out.
- I am supposed to be having fun now
- I have no curfew to get to my cousins place.
- I would any day prefer solitude than socialize (I am a weirdo)
My brother and I shared a lot of similar dreams and one of them was bunk beds. We always goaded our parents to buy us one of those. We had pointless arguments about who gets to sleep on top (Seriously it should be me right?). For better or worse our parents didn't feel that we needed the luxury and we moved on.
Fear … some associate it with the supernatural, some with their exam results, some with bugs and a few (like me) with their dentists
