Here we go

Here we go again, another day and another post full of ramblings and that ought to happen after all a thought piece is just that, something is written from your thoughts and we all know that we can't control our thoughts and it's one of the great mysteries that scientists have devoted decades to understand and still isn't near finding it out. Well, we would leave the talks to scientists and research with the scientists, and let's talk about normal life, something that you and I live through.

The new normal, work from home, only go out for essentials, wear a mask when out, etc. Nowadays I only go out in select cases one scenario would be if I need to get supplies or eat something and the second is if I have to go for photography. I am happy to say that for the last two Sundays I have been able to go out for photography again. Last Sunday it was a Photowalk and yesterday it was a small fun little session with a friend and model.

Another normal is how the time is passed currently it's either live cricket or highlights, little reading, a lot of gaming, and some youtube or some other streaming site. I might have mentioned it but here I am enjoying Visual Novels how days so that can be considered reading if so then it's going great but if you talk about actual books that are going on super slow nowadays.

Also, I like this font, I love the new update to the site done by Google and the option to add all these fonts earlier I had to change the font in the HTML code now I have added so many wonderful fonts. So till next time, Enjoy!

Well, Hello There!!

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

Well, Hello There, yes you, the person reading this, how are you doing? I am in limbo and just enjoying the fruits of others' labour and enjoying all the different kinds of media and a lot of wonderful stories. My last blog post here was last year on 20th March just before the lockdown, and so far the status quo has continued, and it looks like life is going to change in more than a few ways. During this time I have read fewer books than I would have read in a normal year as the bulk of my reading was done during my commute to and from the office and that is gone now. 

I have finished many games, started playing more games on my PC rather than my PS4 Pro, discovered an entirely new type of games and enjoyed them so so much that I lost my sleep and appetite for about 2-3 weeks, I still enjoy those Visual Novel games but no longer play them for all the time.

I got a new Internet connection by Airtel and it's an Xtream fiber connection with speeds of 200 Mbps download and upload and it's unlimited to boot. I just love the connection before this I was using Den broadband for the longest of the times with 100 Mbps download speeds that were very good but the issue was that it had a FUP of 800 GB and then the upload speed was just 5 Mbps that wasn't enough for me as I still plan to continue my youtube channel.

Oh, yeah! in this lockdown period I also finally uploaded few videos to my youtube channel. But like most things, the last video was uploaded on 31st March last year and so far I still have to produce the next video. Along with laziness, there were few issues that were impacting the audio quality, hopefully, that has been fixed now and soon I would hopefully be able to upload more videos. And maybe talk about my books as well. 

Oh Yeah! that's another thing that finally happened last year I am now a published author so that only e-books are available on the Amazon Kindle store but I have two books out now One is a collection of my short stories and another is a collection of Hindi Poems where I have 4 poems. Thanks to my best friend Alankar this dream has been completed.

Last year along with the multitudes of events and weddings had to be postponed due to the lockdown. One of these weddings was that of my sister who was supposed to get married in June but that had to be postponed to November but I couldn't join the wedding as I contacted COVID-19 just one week before the wedding.

Yup, I managed to get infected with COVID-19 and had to deal with 8 days of fever in a row but finally recovered and well continuing with the life now, I have spent most of the time since lockdown alone as wife and kid left just before the lockdown and then they were stuck there as the travel services were on hold. 

Another hobby I picked up during last year is for Fountain Pens and I have collected many fountain pens and many-colored inks and enjoyed practicing writing again as most of the writing I do now is via keyboard and on the computer or the mobile phones. But haven't been able to practice for some time, but will be starting the practice again. 

And that's it for now because I can keep on writing but should keep somethings for the next posts as well. Take care you all, Wash your hands, and wear a mask.

Let's Work from Home

First of all, Let me tell you that I am trying out a new font

So it might not make sense in the future but this time in the year 2020 the world was in the grip of fear of a virus called Corona Virus or COVID-19 but like many countries, in India as well schools and colleges were closed till 31st March and offices were also starting the same.

Our office got there a little late but finally, most of the staff is now set to work from home and though few people were able to go off yesterday or even before and I got delayed by this reason or that reason and finally I am all set to start work from home and this is the test to see that everything is working properly.

Like most of the companies, our company also decided the sent the machines to the home with the workers. So I also brought my machine with me so that I can perform my job and Work from Home and with that in mind this test is being done on the machine just to ensure that everything is working before I have to actually start the work in the evening of Monday. After all, I work in the night shifts supporting US customers. 

So this is just kinda normal reporting post updating about the situation and now I mostly in the home and I was already doing so as wife and kid are wife's home as kid's exams were done so so so I am in isolation and it goes and on and on.

There is no reason other than Laziness

And with that wonderful title let's begin our first post of this blog for this year. Just like that in the blink of an eye more than a year passed since the last post here. What did we do? Well a whole lot of things and then nothing much, Nothing at all. Or if you wanna be positive then I did a whole lot of things in my life and enjoyed the time but the reason why the blogs were left neglected would be simple laziness after all these are not very high-brow articles that are well researched or whatnot. But rather these are simple musings on a possibly deranged mind. Now that's a peaceful thought to leave dangling in one's mind, eh?


Well something if  you are trying to achieve something

So, what else happened in the past year worth repeating well too much honestly and nothing too. Well, right now the entire world is in the grasp of the fear of the Novel Corona Virus which originated in Wuhan district in China and is spreading across the world and though there's no cure available right now, all the countries are trying multiple ways to limit infections. From quarantine to mandatory checking to more but this is more like the current news not the review of the last year. 

Well, last year went something like this I read a lot of books, I clicked a lot of photos and created a new Instagram page for my photography, well while you are here then kindly follow me too (https://www.instagram.com/thevikas.show) :). The family is doing fine cousin got married last year. He is happy and I am happy for him. I finally build an awesome computer for myself which will help me in editing photos and hopefully soon videos. I have plans to start not one but two youtube channels. One would be focused on photography while others would-be Booktube channel. Hopefully, by the time, I can collect my energy for the next post I would have more information about the channels and hopefully links to a couple of videos too. 

And hopefully, I would have some more updates on the damn first book which is still pending in the first chapter. Maybe and maybe next time this post will be sooner than I am able to do anything at all but at least that would mean that I got off my lazy ass and updated my blogs in time.

Something Something Blah Blah

Yeah what else to say or how else to say? Considering this would be my first post of this year and I didn't plan anything for this post and it's just like the title says just whatever I think to say. Well I am listening to "All Eyes on Me" by 2Pac on Spotify and loving it. Things be how they are and how they are supposed to be so tomorrow would be (Well considering I am working in the night shift it's already 14th but for my sanity's sake let's call it tomorrow) Valentine's Day so Wish another day full of love and happiness after all it's like you only love the person you love for just one day and then forget about them for the next 364 days.



Just take the opportunity to make the special one in your life feel extra special and try not to make them feel anything less than special in even on other days. Me, oh poor me is again going to be alone on this like other days as wifey is at her parents house, oh well let her rest after all you can't have enough time with your parents no matter how much you try. Let's talk another song which started on Spotify "Ringer" by Eminem love this song too. Loved the entire album, Eminem is after all one of my most favorite artist. Who are your favorite artists and which are your favorite songs, if you are reading this then try to share that.



What are the chances that you would be reading this the third paragraph well if you come to the page then maybe some but what with short attention spans of our times. So let's also talk about how we all get lost in the endless stream of content and videos on Youtube.com looks like there is another interesting video as the one you are watching ends. I have lost many evenings where I planned to read my books or planned on watching a movie or a series but then turns out I spent all the time going through different youtube videos. And it's not like anyone is immune to the youtube sinkhole. And I think that I should be stopping now and will be back to blabber in the next edition of Something Something Blah Blah, So till next time then.
