It’s that time of year again! Yeah, I’m actually talking about results. 10th Result will be published within few weeks and 12th Results are also on the way.
I worked in retail store for a month and lottery was the thing that fascinated me the most.
Today afternoon, Be Limitless, a beautiful chrome extension which helps me increase my productivity and focus on tasks showed me this beautiful quote.
Trying to maintain both full-time job with enthusiasm and making future life decisions makes me somehow get lost in time and forget to take some moment to truly enjoy the life.
200KM of journey from Pokhara to Kathmandu just to attend WordCamp 2014 added a new energy for me to do something for community in 2015.
Story of organizing and managing Django Girls Pokhara Event to help few people learn to code!
I believe we always wanted our lives to be simpler and less complicated. I don’t know since when we actually start memorising the events but I still think that’s what we wanted.
Probably when we were in Nursery, we wanted all those 26 letters to become less in number so that we could master more easily and fast. Some of us probably even stripped away some letters when we were asked to repeat. A step ahead, we had to learn about words. Complex words than those small single letters. Then, sentences were introduced. Paragraphs with long sentences full of words and hundreds of letters were there.
In the next stage, we were asked to compete some imaginary shits where that x always tend to lost somewhere and unknown. We had to find that thing as if we didn’t it would cause the next world war. Later on y and even z joined them. We are doing all those things in the hope of simpler life.
We were in school. Somehow enjoying life without even knowing what enjoyment was. We always thought the life was simpler ahead. So, wished this boring school life to end so that life will be simple without “x” playing hide and seek with us.
The hope of simpler life was the only thing that kept me going. Seriously, I had no idea why I was going to school, trying hard to get good marks, trying even more harder to top the school. All in the hope of simpler life.
We were then in college life. Still waiting for the simplicity.
In contrast, the life was getting complicated day by day. From the day, we stepped into this world. The every day was more complex, more hard to explain and understand.
Words were complex than letters, so were the paragraphs with sentences. You realized the hide and seek of “x”, “y”, “z” was nothing but mere climax of what was going to happen.
The college life you waited days and night was no more freedom or anything like that. It was a burden. Full of responsibilities. You had to worry about further education. Too much of confusion was there.
Simpler were those days of childhood when you could sleep whole day without being irritated by someone else. You were instead helped to sleep better.
Life is whatever. I’m not the right guy to give some sugar coated answer which would make a history changing quotes. BUT
Don’t let life randomly kick you into the adult you don’t want to become
I read that above line somewhere on internet. I don’t remember the source though.
That’s it. Life was never supposed to be fair. It is not even that complex.
This post originally appeared on question-answer site, Quora, answering the question “Is there anyone on Quora who was in Nepal at the time of the earthquake who could give us insights on how it felt?”
I’m from Pokhara, Nepal.
I experienced the earthquake here. Though pokhara is not much affected with physical destruction. People here are still mentally disturbed.
Before earthquake, I was watching television. Then suddenly cable went off. I felt a small tremble. Initially, I thought it was because of the vehicles passing through the road. Moreover, I had experienced another earthquake few days ago. So I didn’t bother to do something. But in next moment, electricity went off and I felt strong tremble.
Then I somehow reached to roads as it was the only open space nearby. When I reached there, I found many people were already there. Since I had never experienced quake of more than few seconds, I had thought it would stop. But it lasted more than 60 seconds. I was looking at the buildings nearby which were shaking heavily. People were trying to jump off buildings. Sounds were being produced due to shaking of buildings. I felt like I was being shaked and my legs were moving itself.
After the earthquake, I lost electricity and internet connectivity for more than 10 hours. Situation was more worsened by the rumors. Every other people down the street was acting like seismologist. People spent the nights in tent for next 2 days. Currently the situation is kind of normal now.
It feels so weird after deactivating Faceboook, Twitter and Quora accounts in row. I had no idea what was going inside my mind. I just started with deactivating Facebook leaving message to few of my friends that I won’t be available on Facebook and ended up deactivating Quora account too. It feels so strange. I feel like I have nothing to do with internet.
It is probably not more than 4 years since I started using Internet. As kid, I thought doing blogging and a bit of coding was fancy thing to tell people around me. I never really got deeper idea of anything. I was just trying about everything possible without proper guideline. Even after 4 years, it’s same. I think I am conscious internet user just because I know how internet can be used for one’s benefit. I didn’t even use internet that way for myself too.
I don’t know when I became addicted to internet. When ever I opened Google Chrome in my laptop, first thing I used to do was opening Facebook to check some cool pictures of my friends, some useless conversations and some more useless notifications inviting me to play Candy Crush and most amazing part was those notifications used to claim that “they would find who would be my valentine for this year”. As I coder, I knew that was just random thing. After getting bored from Facebook, I used to open new tab to pretend if I was working which never produced any significance result.
Then again it was turn for twitter. Open twitter, if someone I knew was on timeline then I used that some other useless conversation. RT-ing programming related stuff to pretend I was a programmer which I never succeeded to be.
Lastly it was turn of quora. Click on new tab and open quora. Then another form of non-productive work. I know Quora was supposed to be productive but what if someone just opens up Quora to procrastinate. I was proud, actually very proud of what I have done in my age. I feel like idiot now thinking all those things. I used to read answers by famous people. Again I never really implemented those things in real life.
After getting bored by Quora, I used to open Facebook in another tab without realizing Facebook was already open in another tab of the same browser. This is the sequence of events I followed every day as my schedule which truly destroyed the path I was trying to follow.
After deactivating Facebook I realized that whenever I saw my beautiful new tab page. I opened up Facebook instantly. Whenever I had some kind of stupid questions on my mind, I used to open Quora instantly and same goes for Twitter. It was the way of living for me. Check Facebook updates, Twitter conversations, Quora notifications and the internet was over.
This doesn’t mean I wasn’t trying to do some works to gain experience. As a high school student I was trying to develop some websites for clients just as to gain some confidence. But again I never completed any of them. Most of them were made in last 1 day of deadline and I never looked at them after them. There were so many problems existing in those system which I never cared. That is how I lived my life. Never completing anything I starte…
This is a small story of mine and I am writing here without any purpose. I would have written this most probably either in Facebook or Twitter if I had not deactivated any one of them. Now it feels I have no place to express my feeling. So, my old blog with no content was the proper solution 😀
To those who noticed my wrong structures of sentences formations. I’m not a native English speaker. I live in country where I have to teach my teacher to use correct tense and spelling!
