Brief Hiatus

Its been a while that I have written anything on my Blog. Studies and job are the main things that have kept me away from writing, perhaps it shows a lake of time management on my part. But now since I am all free, Thanks to the enough number of Summer Vacations, something I always wait for. I will have the liberty to read and write more and make lesser excuses for not writing.

My to-do-list

There are only and only two things on my Summer Vacations’ To-Do-List, which are reading some of my favourite books and writing more here on my blog.

That’s why I have kept my to-do-list very simple and short.

So guys stay tuned.

Simulating bodies of the United Nations and beyond, MUN aims to educate on global policies, among other things. However, by the end of most sessions, delegates soon realize that most resolutions in the real…

Mostly Bright Ideas

I’m getting old. I thought I was getting old ten years ago, but that was nothing compared to now. On medical forms and written surveys, I’m almost in the last age group, and at some stores I qualify for a senior citizen discount. I’ve been around a long time. Yet I can still remember when doing elaborate tricks with a yo-yo was a sign of coolness. When it took less than a minute to realize there wasn’t anything on television worth watching. When there were magazine covers that did not have Jennifer Aniston’s face on them. When people said things like, “Oh yeah? Wanna bet?” and “What’re you cracked or something?” and “Cross my heart and hope to die.”

I think back on events from my childhood, and they seem to be wavy and shrouded in fog. A lot of my memories are in black and white, and the sound…
