We've come a long way when it comes to the way we communicate. Most people suck at making phone calls. I have a lot of quirks as a person. I am also easily irritable when it comes to said quirks. One of these is that I hate people who call you and instead of talking to you, they start talking to someone else who's standing right next to them. In fact, I asked a lot of friends, and they agree. This is common and an annoyance. Let me tell you why that is. … [Read more...] about What Most People Don’t Understand When They’re Making Phone Calls
Eating shit is a choice. This is something I've learned in the last six months. In fact, it was almost exactly six months ago when I wrote a post titled, "Just Add Water: A Lazy People’s Guide To 2-Minute Cup Food". This post talks about my, then recent, acquaintance with instant eatables. This is a passive apology for glorifying the idea of bad eating habits. Just add water, but you know, it's always better to avoid eating shit. So, don't. Don't add water. … [Read more...] about Don’t Add Water: You Can Always Eat Something Better
On Christmas Day last year, I was with my friends in Starbucks. It was a great week. People from the hometown were staying with me, and I showed them around Delhi-NCR.

It was a girl, but it's … [Read more...] about That Stranger In Starbucks Who Was So Content That She Was An Anomaly
I spent a lot of time reading Medium articles last year. Most of them fell into the same group and talked about the same things. The hustle porn, the CEO routines and so on was the name of the game. However, one article that I remember was about "making your bed". I tried looking for it. However, Medium is full of "make your bed" articles now. It's a weird community. Nevertheless, I have another take on the whole "make your bed to change your life" sentiment. It isn't about the bed, all you need … [Read more...] about How Finding My Trigger Habit Lets Me Break My Routine If Life Demands
It is great to have friends. It is even better if your friends do things. Nothing tops having healthy jealousy among friends who do things though. That is how I define my relationship with my friends from my hometown. Each of us has a different path, and we realise that. It is in that realisation that we continually push each other to become the best versions of ourselves. I wouldn't have done half the things I did in the last five years had I not been around those people. … [Read more...] about Surround Yourself With Friends Who Do To Enable Yourself To Do More
If it's not clear from the subtitle of this blog or many blog posts, I like learning. In fact, I love learning. A lot of that learning has recently been in the form of paid courses and nano-degrees. Most people I know ask me why I prefer paying for knowledge that is freely available in other ways. Let me share my side of the story and let's see if it makes sense to you. … [Read more...] about Why Do I Pay For Courses If Knowledge Is Freely Available?
