Bloody Mother of Dragon, I’m not Daenerys! :|

Standard

Let me not even go there and talk about my inconsistent blog posts!! I’ll rather put a congratulatory post, when I consistently post for at least 6 months!

Whatever let me start this fiery post!

~~~~~

The day was 28th January’17. The day all my dreams shattered, the day I realized I was not the mother of Dragons and I won’t ever find any eggs that will give me cute dragon babies. The day I realized if I step into a pyre of fire, I’ll DIE.

How did my delusional mind came to that realization, you ask?

So let me tell you about that hell of a night, I went for a bachelorette party. It was going on pretty well. Dance, drinks, food, cute guys. Then one kind soul among us, thought we should try fire shots. Well, they looked scary to begin with. So the first round we were given straws and that went smoothly. Then came the second round, and thanks to the daredevil attitude that kicks in after a couple of drinks, we had this amazing idea of taking the fire shots like normal shots. That too went well for everyone else. But well, I’m the 1% percent of the population when it comes to disaster. I spilled the drink on my lips and cheeks and burnt them. Now normal people would go consult a doctor immediately, but the amazing brain cells I have, it managed to convince me it was nothing and I would be fine, so I went put some ice, had few more drinks and enjoyed the party.

The next few weeks, well let me not talk about it. It has taken me almost 3 months, to take this incident in a humorous spirit. It’s not easy to attend a wedding you were looking forward to for months with a burnt face. I have cried, I was depressed. My face is still not flawless as it was before but well I can only learn to accept it laugh about it and wear it like a badge of honor of a crazy night.

There’s one thing, I learnt from this incident, something or some experiences in life are better left untried. It’s better to be inexperienced than have scary, depressing experiences like these.

Everything aside, the saddest part of this whole incident was coming in term with the fact that, I don’t have dragon blood! Even though it has been 3 months, I have still not able to come out and recover from the depression this fact has caused me.

How will I ever manage to sit on the Iron Throne now?! 

P.S Please don’t take fire shots! If you absolutely have to, or you will lose the title of being the ‘Coolest Kid‘ then be very very careful!!

Not even funny anymore!

Standard

I sometimes ask myself, I really like having this blog, so why am I not maintaining it? Unfortunately, I haven’t figured out the answer yet.

The last post I have is from 27th MAY!! It’s 28th August. 3 months and nothing. The 3 months were, kind of like a roller coaster ride, finishing college, starting job, shifting places. But still I can’t blame it on being busy, because come on, I would be kidding myself if I said, I was too busy to even find couple of hours to post something. The only thing, I can put my blame on is my laziness.

Considering, the heights of laziness, I have reached, it’s not even funny anymore.

I’m like this cat, who might like different things, but when it finds a comfortable place, instead of doing anything else. It prefers to fall asleep.

I’m sure, if we (kitty & me) had to put our life in hashtags, we would be like #sleepisbae #sleepislove #sleeplife #yawningforever #lookingforsleepingareas #excusestosleep 

I have made promises to be a regular blogger, so many times, that I’m not even sure, what to say anymore. But well, let’s try again. I will really try to make it a habit to at least have two posts in a week. I’m not sure about which days. But 2 posts a week.

Thanks for reading this completely useless and lame post! I’m sorry for this, but I promise, I’ll do a lot better than this. 😀

Change is inevitable.

Standard

Inevitable

One word prompt.

As soon as we adjust ourselves to a change and start getting comfortable, life knocks us out with some other random changes.
Sometimes the changes lift our spirits higher, like when you make some new amazing friends in school and college. Sometimes they break us down, like when you have to say goodbye to them or they just drift apart. But, both times, it ends up teaching us a valuable lesson and reminds us, Change is inevitable.

The inevitability of change doesn’t make it a villain. It’s how you perceive it, that matters. Every change knocks on the door with opportunities, it depends on how wide you open the door.

The inevitable nature of change is what brings thrill to life. Maintaining an equilibrium in life for a long time, gets boring. From time to time, there should be shifts in the different curves of life, so that the adrenaline level increases or decreases. That is the only way to expand our horizons and grow to our full potential and sometimes even surpass them.

Ofcourse, I loved being a kid, who could cry and get her job done. I loved it when choosing the color of a crayon was the hardest decision I had to make. I loved it when being happy took the slightest of effort. I loved it when monopoly money was all I had to worry about.

But, I equally love to be responsible for getting my job done. I love it when I’m given power to make bigger decisions, which determines where I stand in life. I love it when I convince and work towards making myself happy. I love it when I pay real bills with real money.

If changes were evitable we would never step out of our state of equilibrium. Change is the only constant in our equation of life. So let’s accept it and go with the flow.

You’ve been granted magical engineering skills, but you can only use them to build one gadget or machine. What do you build?

*Magical Engineering Skills!* I want to add dreamy eyes to these words. If I had such superhero like power. Yeah, I am guilty of thinking of programmers as people with magical powers. I just hope they keep using it to build amazing stuffs, and if you are running out of ideas, please feel free to get in touch with me.

So, coming back to, what I would do, if I had the skills and by skills, I’m making an assumption that, I have all the skills required.
For this post, I am a programmer, a designer an electronic engineer, a craftsman, in short a master of all trades.
(Being an economics student, I have this weird urge to clearly specify the assumptions I make.)

Presenting to you the iFooder

How it works:
•When you touch your favourite food, it records the exact taste of it, and you can save it, with its name.
•When you feel like eating the same dish you can just touch your lips to the tip of the device and it will align your senses, making you believe you actually ate the dish.

Benefits:
It gives you the taste without adding the calories, in your body! Not worrying that you need to run harder just because of the extra cheese burger you just had? What else could you freaking ask for?

It lets you have the taste of whatever you want, whenever you want without paying for it! Come on, you have to agree this is the best thing that has ever happened to the humankind.

Cost:
$1999 only!
Can it be any cheaper?! I don’t think so.

As for the name, I am assuming, Apple is going to love this product so much, that it would let me use the ‘i’, for free.
(Again assumption is something I am deeply fond of)

I am creating an impression of a total foodie with back to back posts on food!

The name, you asked?

Standard

Say Your Name
Write about your first name: Are you named after someone or something? Are there any stories or associations attached to it? If you had the choice, would you rename yourself?

I have a very strong motive to right this post, from now, whenever someone asks me the story behind my name, I’ll send them here.

So, let the story begin.
When I was born, on that same month, there was a story in a monthly magazine. My dad and grandpa, really liked the name of the author and she had the same family name, as ours.
So, they decided to name me after the author, ‘Tisha'(so much for creativity, I believe laziness runs in the family ;)).

Anyway, the twist comes now, apparently the article was in Bengali and so was the name. Bengali has an interesting concept, the ‘s’ is pronounced as ‘sh’ , so what happened is the English translation for my name, ended up being ‘Tisa’.

Now, those people whom I have personally met and told the ‘s’, ‘sh’ concept, calls me Tisha and those who see my name before hearing it from me calls me ‘Tisa’. I respond to both, but I prefer the earlier version.

I don’t want to change my name, maybe the spelling. But, sometimes it’s fun to choose from the two spellings. I like the uniqueness of my name.

Apart from that, I love the meaning of ‘Tisha’, it means joy. I would like to believe, it complements me perfectly.

Dear Escalator

How can I just not love you?! You are the perfect example of ‘how things should be’.

I love how you take us to new heights, and the only thing we need to do is stand on you.
If only, life learnt a thing or two from you.

I love how we people can completely ignore the broad stairs beside you and patiently wait to ride you, even if there is a queue.

I love the bristles on your sides, it shows how much you care about us, I know you don’t want us to go to work with dirty shoes. So, you make sure at least one side of our shoes is clean.
(Fact: It is actually there so that our clothes doesn’t get caught in the machine)

It’s not just you I love, but also your sister, the one I find mostly in Airports. She is so cool, almost an escalator like you but doesn’t escalates. (They are called Travelators, I believe). Now who doesn’t like walking, without moving?!

I would really love it, if you can get in touch with the treadmill and teach him to be like you and start burning calories while we stood on it.

Continue Escalating.

Love

We can almost hear the jingling of the bells. Christmas is around the corner, about to knock on the door. Rudolph must be on it’s way to pick Santa.

Anyway, I really wish to be more frequent with my posts though. I will do it this time! 👿

Once again, let go off your worries and tensions for a few days and Have a wonderful holiday people!

During exam thoughts vs After exams action

Standard

“Just let my exams get over! I have so many amazing things planned up during the vacations.”
~Me every semester
When I have my exams going on, there are so many things I have an immense motivation to do. Things that never crosses my mind during the rest of the semester. It’s like this:

Things I plan to do after exams

But as soon as the exams are over, I’m like “eh?! Ain’t nobody got time for these shit.”
I’ll rather do this:

What I actually do

Join a gym? Come on, doesn’t picking up the can of pepsi and bringing to my mouth count as a workout?

I’ll start my last semester, in January, and I can confidently say, this random period of motivation to do so many things always has a time limit from the start of exam to the end of exams.

I would like to believe, I’m not the only one who goes through this. Do let me know, if any of you guys go through the same? We can maybe share some popcorns and talk about how being lazy is awesome!;)

Life and Eggs.

Standard

Have you guys tried boiling an egg?
Stupid question? Duh.

But if, you answered in affirmative. I am pretty sure, you could egg-xactly relate to the struggle, which comes with it.

Those who answered in negative, might be wondering, seriously, how hard can it be to boil an egg? You take water, put the eggs in it and put it on the stove.

No dude, it’s not as easy as it looks, what goes behind that hard shell is a deep mystery.
How long does it need to boil?
Should the stove be on full?
How do I know it’s boiled?

You can keep on staring at the eggs, for minutes and it would still look the same. The water boils, making the egg jump but it still is that same round white thing with its shell.
But then when you take it out after a few mins, and remove the shell it’s a completely different thing more edible than it was before.

Well, this is not a blog on cooking and I am the last person anyone would come for cooking advice.

I just feel, our life is like the egg, in the beginning, we are not sure, how long it will take us, to become the person we desire to be. There are so many hurdles we need to cross but those hurdles are like the heat, we need them.
It may appear to be insignificant at the moment but in the long run, that heat is what shapes us from the inside.

Let’s Keep smiling, keep moving, in the end we’ll turn out to be a tasty egg!

Hey Bloggers!
I am not really a new blogger, I have started blogs two times before. One time it was boring and lasted hardly a few months.
The second one is a bit better but then I don’t know, it felt a bit too serious and mature. Unfortunately, there is a limit to how long I can remain serious.

Everywhere I went, I have read blogs should be about a niche topic something you really know about. But I am like the female version of Jon Snow, maybe slightly better because I know somethings but then I get bored and move to another thing and in the end I know a tid bit of things from here and there. Eh? You get it, don’t you? 😉

I would rather be a jack of all trades than master of one.
This time I really really hope I’ll continue with this blog because I want to make it simple and interesting that way I can upload whatever and whenever I feel like, rather than spending hours making my post look perfect.

So guys, maybe the posts in here won’t be to the mark or standard of many but I promise I’ll try my best to make them interesting. 🙂
