Morning Hours

My last post took me almost 6 days to compile from top-to-bottom! Clearly something is wrong with my schedule and needs to be rectified! Earlier I used to write at the end of the day, sitting comfortably in my room and slowly and steadily completing each composition. This way I didn’t have to worry about time and could go on writing as long as I can. But then 6 days to write one post is too much time.

For a change, I have decided to switch to morning time for writing my posts. 9-10 am mainly because it is a free hour between a jam-packed academic schedule on all days except Friday. Starting a day with creating something positive fills me with positive energy. Certainly a different way to start an otherwise regular morning. Also sitting down early in morning, trying to  brain storm something positive helps to set the tone of the day. 

There is a saying: “Early risers get ahead in the game”. Getting up early and writing something is stronger motivation than getting up early and studying, I mean at least for a normal student like me. Waking up early and activating brain cells to start thinking about what to write from the moment alarm rings, helps in strong energy flow throughout the body. And before you know, slowly and steadily, entire body wakes up and you are already working at your 70-80% capabilities! A little exercise or yoga is like cherry on the top! But I am yet to walk on that road. Although I have made it a habit to cycle fast!

Writing in morning means, I have to sleep early in the night. This implies more sleep and fresher mornings! Hence changing the position of just one activity brought the entire schedule to a somewhat optimal level. Waking up early in morning is easier when we have slept enough and also with habit, one does not feel the need of alarm clock too. Hence no unpleasant sounds in morning and one wakes up to the noise of chirping birds sound and rays of sun. The feeling is super, trust me!

Remember, how our daily schedule was more than optimum during school days! We were able to accomplish so much in the entire day. Study 5-7 subjects, complete homework, play, practice some hobby, hangout with friends, sleep, watch tv too (I was a big cartoon network and Hungama fan. 😀 Shinchan, Kochikame and Beyblade, Tom & Jerry were my opium 😉 ). No wonder those were the most satisfying days! Most of us fail to do even half of that now! Just because we are losing productive morning hours which we used to get during school hours.

I also realized that developing a new habit takes time. It takes more of mental strength to stick to that habit than physical tuning! People are very enthusiastic during the initial days of starting the new habit or hobby but then lose the motivation mainly due to impatience. Our mind always wants to do things in the easy way with a few exceptions of course. It demands immediate results. Unlike bad habits, good habits often don’t deliver immediate results. They are more about long term effects on your life and health. Thus every time you start acquiring good habits, our mind tries to resist and immediately it will pose numerous obstacles. Conquering these obstacles is the biggest challenge while developing some new habit. This usually is not the case with the bad habits. One can easily acquire bad habits without much effort! 

Thus, I will be trying to incorporate “Early Rising” practice in my schedule and hopefully with time it will become a good habit. You can expect more morning posts from now on. Trust me, it is such a wonderful experience to write in morning with all the peace and calm around because everyone else is usually asleep. Fingers crossed! 😀 

Buenos días (Good Morning in Spanish 🙂 )



Person Next To Me

Before diving into the blog post straightaway, allow me to explain the environment I am this in. I am in IPC (Information Processing Centre) which has really high speed network facilities and students usually utilize it for doing online courses, practice for their lab assignments or may be just 1080p streaming of YouTube. I came to study like many other students but then I got this idea about the assignment I have to complete for the Creative Writing course: Describe a person! This requires observing people andplace better than IPC to observe, where everybody is busy in their work. Sort of perfect place to observe people and write about them without them noticing. <Evil laughter!> 😀

Let me start with some basic information about the victim of this blog post. She is a girl sitting on my left. She wears thick spectacles, perhaps studious in nature. She has an open notebook on which she is scribbling with a fast hand writing, assures the above assumption. She has black hair with a tinge of brown and tied tight in a fancy rubber band. It is suggestive of two things: she has a busy schedule and she takes her work seriously or she is not too much influenced by fashion styles and goes for the most effective option! Of course there can be other plausible explanations too. She is fair in colour and her steady head indicates- focused eyes. I think our “studious” theory might be true.

Worn off nail paints again indicate either she didn’t get the time to repaint or she is not bothered too much by rules and regulation of fashion world! She is average in height, her chair position and sitting posture clearly asserts this theory. She is sitting with a slightly forward inclination portrays inquisitive nature. She types fast both on keyboard and phone. I noticed her replying quickly to a couple of messages. Perhaps she doesn’t like getting distracted too often or she believes in finishing simpler tasks quickly.

She constantly have one or both hand touching her chin. May be a by product of coaching institute where students spend hours in lectures 100-150 other students! Long lecture hours in coaching institutes automatically develop such habits. May be something “awestruck” is happening on her monitor. We would never know! She doesn’t like moving her chair much. Such stability might be result of stable personality and self restraint along with calm mind. She hasn’t written or typed something in a while, probably fell prey to YouTube and high speed internet. Perhaps not too much self-disciplined.

Never leaned back on her chair projects the urge to stay attentive and hard-working nature (not slacking off). She looked towards me once. I adjusted my eyes and pretended to be lost in my thoughts! Phew! Close call! Here quick scribbling speed and now indulging in pleasure activities, is suggestive of “work hard, play hard” nature and combined with hard-working and attentive posture and tolerance for long study session (from hand on chin), projects a strong and prioritizing person who has worked hard all the way to reach here! May be she is searching for some APOGEE project! It is near by. There are many possible interpretations here! I might be completely wrong too! We would never know! Time to leave before she notices that I am creepily writing about her! It was fun though! 😀

Good Bye (Good Bye in English 😀 )
