“This week is almost coming to an end, I have to think of something to post. But what should I write about? Maybe I should check The Daily Post for some ideas. But what is the point of posting? Who on the internet is actually interested to read what I think or what happened to me?” After thinking for some time a wild idea struck. “Well I should post about this, anyway”
These are just some initial stages of thoughts I go through before starting to write a post on WordPress. I’ve more than 50 drafts and only 20-22 published posts. All these drafts are my abandoned attempts to write. Most of the time after writing half or one-third of the post, I think that this is mess and is going nowhere and I’m actually wasting my time then I sign out of WordPress.
I don’t know if you can relate but I think my urge to write increases by nights and disappear in the day. I published most of my posts (except one or two) in night time not because I’m busy during the day but because this is when I feel like writing. In fact it’s 3:43 AM when I’m writing this.
Turned the staring wheel to the right and pushed the accelerator to take a side turn and all of a sudden I crashed into a lamp post! And before I could realize anything the person who was teaching me how to drive came running from the other side of the road, dumbfounded and awestruck. He quickly got inside and parked the car by the road side. That was when I saw that I made a terrible mess in the front side.
It was in June 2008, I laid my hands in a staring wheel for the first time in my life and it was a terrible start. I stayed away from the staring wheels for the next 5-6 months.
But things went really well the next time. From then on for the next 1 year, I took driving lessons on weekends for 1-2 hours. There were no crashes/accidents except for one or two occasions (which wasn’t anything serious either).
Yeah I’m a really good driver now!
Daily Prompt: Apply Yourself
It was April 2012, I hurried out from my Physics class to attend statistics-1, which takes about 15-20 minutes to reach from where I was. I got into the class and sat beside my friend in the front row. The class was almost coming to an end and students who finished their class work early, left. Revision class of Chapter 6 was going on. The substitute teacher was explaining something to my friend who sat beside me. “You didn’t study anything, listen you are supposed to revise or study the things that are being done in the class, right? So, when is your exam?” asked the teacher. “January”, we both replied though the teacher directed the question to my friend. “Study now and you will be able rest before the examination” he replied and slowly walked out of the class.
I looked at my friend beside and laughed, “Man, 8 months left!”. January seemed a thousand years away at that moment. I thought I had enough time to finish things well. But now, here I’m in January a day before my exam starts with a lot and lot of things still to do which I’m afraid I could not cover within the short time I have.
“You may delay, but time will not.”
