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.

Procrastination

Just look at me I look like a person who has his sights on the goal and just can't wait to reach there. Then what happened. Well posed photos are exactly those posed. Now this wasn't totally posed after all I was actually shooting at the targets and managed to hit few of them. Well I am getting side tracked.

I wanted to talk about a term called 'procrastination' this is the word and here's the dictionary definition:

The action of delaying or postponing something.

Procrastination  means doing something which delays you to work on something else, which something else may be important as well. For example I am planning on writing a book and I have almost the entire plan and structure ready in my head but so far I haven't put a single words towards starting this book. 

I have my reasons:
1. I currently have a laptop and no table which makes it harder to type.
2. I am planning on getting a table so that I can be more comfortable in using my computer.
3. I have already purchased a wonderful chair

But all the reasons for planning aside where's my table, well still waiting to be finalised. And what do I do when I am not writing my book? I read, I watch Youtube or Netflix or Prime or Hotstar or something else. I play games on my PS4 Pro too. These all activities can come under Procrastination.

And why do we procrastinate? Because we always like to the things which are fun so that we don't have to do other tasks. Have to finish this awesome book so can't go to market today. Have to play this super awesome game so can't wash the clothes. Watching a riveting show can't move even for a second. Looks like we are hardwired for procrastination. After all everybody would jump first for a chance to do something fun or entertaining. 

But how can we actually do something, by making plans and by sticking to them. By Ensuring that we follow a strict timetable and don't deviate from that. Now I am saying this but I don't when would I be able to proceed with my plan but I promise you I would continue and make sure to write that first book and move it out of the way so that I can then go onto write the second or more books. But first of all I have get the hard part done, that being actually finishing the damn thing. 

Well then so far for today and let me finish it on a cute end, look here's for the cutest Spiderman you will ever see.

Changes are a-coming

Let's not dwell to much on the image, this was shared by me earlier in fun and let's go back to the changes which will be hitting me from the start of next week. I am not sure if I have already shared the information or not but I am back in the night shifts now. After working in day shift for around 16 months.

Now I was working in 9 PM to 6 AM shift but now again that's going to change as I start working with a new client starting this Monday so my new shift timing is going to be 12.30 AM - 09.30 AM IST. Now this may seem odd but I have worked in shifts starting at 2.30 AM, 1:30 AM, 2 AM, 4 AM so it wouldn't be that much of a change but change nonetheless for whatever it's worth.

My journey back to gaming is going strong courtesy of my PS4 Pro. I now own 6 games on disk and just finished - Horizon Zero Dawn (Complete Edition) and plan to start Injustice 2. Life is good when you get to do what you love and that's what I am doing loving the life.

Recently bought couple of more books (around 26) so that's wonderful now I just have to buy a bookself or two to store them safely but that would have to wait. So World Photography Day is on Sunday 19th August and I have select and edit a photo or two to share on that day too.

But coming back to the changes the biggest change is going to be the new client so time to learn new things and also the new timings. Till then learn and grow.
