Pride and Prejudice and Me

To all those people who’ve already read Pride and Prejudice- congrats! And to those who haven’t- go read it. It’s totally worth your time. I read Pride and Prejudice about half a year ago, and it helped me a lot in judging myself. The characters in the book can easily be related to real people. What I loved most was the way the women were portrayed in the book. From the manipulative Lady Catherine to the wild and unabashed Lydia Bennet- who runs off with a young sailor, the book introduces to you women of all sorts. If you look a little more carefully, you may find that these women are not much dissimilar to those in your life. Needless to say, Elizabeth was my favorite- and I pride myself in saying that I’m a lot like her. (Just kidding!) I can almost imagine the sophisticated way in which she carries herself, her modesty, and the way she always stands her ground, no matter what. Pride and Prejudice is, in a way, a study of the human nature- it’s noble and ignoble qualities. You can draw inspiration from any of the characters, and try to better yourself. It teaches you a lot of morals- but at the same time, it’s also really interesting. Mr.Darcy’s character is a writer’s genius. The story seems really complicated, but at the same time, really simple. It’s definitely found it’s place on my list of top ten favorite books!

Preparing for exams

It’s 10:00 pm and I’ve got my terminal exam practicals tomorrow- and I haven’t studied a bit. I also have a five page assignment to complete. Yup. I’m utterly reckless. I’m just not interested in exams, I guess. I always start at the last minute. So, how do You guys prepare for exams? If you are a last- minuter, like me, then welcome to the club! I don’t know what it is about last- minute study, but it seems to work a lot better than preparing for weeks! My dad’s shouting at me right now for not studying and typing on my blog. Well, I felt that typing a blog is much better than trying to bully my brains into studying- so, here I am. But there are times when I really do study- like the time when I challenged my classmate that I would score more than him in Hindi. I ended up studying too hard and getting a centum. I never knew until then that I was capable of scoring more than 90% in language. But, turns out that challenging your friends is a pretty good way to study! Okay. I really need to wind up now and start studying. Feel free to share your exam- preparing experiences with me. And to all those poor souls who have got exams tomorrow- God be with you!

What the Harry Potter series means to me

This is something I’ve been wanting to write for a long time. Harry Potter has made a distinct impact on me, as it has to all it’s other readers. Even now, I clearly remember the first time I read a Harry Potter book. It was when I was 11. My elder brother introduced it to me. And the first Harry Potter book I read was not Harry Potter and the philosopher’s stone- which is the first one of the series. It was Harry Potter and the goblet of fire- the fourth book. At first, I found it really boring. It made no sense to me. But I persevered. A few days later, I stopped reading the fourth book. I started again, from the first. And this time I didn’t stop. I kept reading and reading and reading until I was at the last word of the last page of the last book of the series- which was a year later. I read, and reread the books over and over again until all the chapters were imprinted on my mind. Harry Potter was my greatest friend all those months. And when I finally completed it, I was sad- I was sad because I would never again get the feeling of reading Harry Potter for the first time again. The suspense was gone- I always knew what was coming in the next few pages. And yet, even now, whenever I spot a Harry Potter book on our bookshelf on a rainy day, I find it impossible to refrain myself from picking it up- and running my eyes over those familiar lines. Harry Potter feels like an old friend of mine- one I grew up with. And even though it’s going to be a long wait, I’m dreaming about the day on which I would introduce Harry Potter to My children.

Nerdy Book Club

When I was a kid, my parents had amazingly vast bookshelves, and when I got bored on rainy days, I’d sometimes pull a book off the shelf.  Often, I had absolutely no interest in what I found.  I distinctly remember NOT reading Anthony Powell’s A Dance to the Music of Time.

But now and then, I’d find a book with scribbles in it, a book my mom or dad had written all over, and that I loved, no matter how dull the book.  There was something magical about the old notes. I felt like I was traveling into the past, peering into the people my parents had been Once Upon a Time.  When they were young.

Of course, eventually I ran to my own bookshelves and began scribbling on the pages.  I wasn’t really sure what to write, but I wanted to leave a trace, a message to…

Tips To Be Happier

Hey guys! This is my second blog. In this blog, i’ll be sharing a few tips with you guys which might help you. I hope you enjoy!
We all have times when we feel really unhappy- and just can’t seem to figure out why! Well, why don’t you go through the following 5 tips- they might just come in handy!

1.Choose the right company: The people around you definitely make an impact on your mood. Choose the right set of people to hang out with. Avoid standing around people who discourage you or make fun of you for the benefit of others. Remember that true friends are never mean. Find a company which appreciates you and makes you feel better- not worse. Talking your mind helps you in selecting the right people. Honesty may not get you a lot of friends- but it will sure get you the right ones!

2.Take time off: If you guys are anything like me, you’ll get bored of your life really soon- if it is monotonous. Who wants a life in which all you do is wake up everyday and go to work? So, whenever you get an opportunity to go out with family or friends, go for it. Just for a few days, forget all about your school, college, or office work, and just enjoy yourself. You can face the storm when you get back.

3.Develop a hobby: Each person is unique. Different people like different things. Whenever you have spare time, try not to waste it in front of the television. Do something that you like. It can be anything- dancing, singing, cooking, writing, reading, v-logging, yoga, sports- you name it. Because I personally feel that people are at their happiest when they are doing things that they love.

4.Have a purpose: Millions of people are born all over the world everyday. They grow up, they grow old, they die. How many of these people have striven to make a change? Maybe one in a hundred? Life is meant to be lived- not survived. Find Your calling in life. Because true happiness lies in helping your fellow beings. Try to get rid of that selfishness.

5.Take it easy: Stop dwelling on things too much. This is one of my favorite sayings: “Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, but Today is a gift- that’s why it’s called ‘The Present'”. Great, right? Try to look at the positive side of each problem. Trust that, in the end, everything will turn out well. You’ll realize that things aren’t so bad after all.
