Can't she have an arbitrary break?

Image
Hello B-Nerdy Visitors,Sometimes I get disheartened to see a generation being raised with barbaric preaching of patriarchy. If a man in the house feels just to lay around without helping with the chores, it is too normal or if I must say too "feminine" of me to point out. Swap the gender, think of the same situation with a lady not doing the chores just because she won't feel like, "OMG, how can she be so bossy right?" I would not complain at all if it was the point of view of somebody crossing their thirties as the root of patriarchy started to loosen its grip since then. But people in their teens and young adult who still believes that whatever the working condition, by default, chores are for mom and financial stuff for dad, I feel worried for the generation they are supposed to raise. I know you guys must have the most modernized and liberal way of life but do you fall in this category too? Do you get boiled up if something gets misplaced or undone but you…

COVID positive story : When all of us tested positive

Image
Hello B-Nerdy visitors,Little did I know, I would be facing a slight twist in my life. In a span of a week, I felt like I spent a year. Sometimes life hits you really well, hustles your base, reshuffle your priorities. You learn the worst thing you can imagine for yourself was not dreary at all. You are shown with few glimpses of the worst nightmare that can turn to reality. A single moment that can reorient your entire life and leaves some scars that teach you to cherish what you have.I was taking a mock test online when I got a call from my friend. I was waiting for the report of COVID -19 but with the rush of that mock exam, it had almost slipped out of my mind. I was already on halfway when she said that both of us tested positive. In that fraction of second, I tried to take as normal as I could. I already knew that the test would definitely turn out positive as I had noticed some of the symptoms on my father the earlier day. I hung up on phone and just took a long breath. I had p…

How to Time Travel without a machine?

Image
Hello B-Nerdy Visitors,This is one of the ideas that popped out of blue at midnight while I struggled sleeping one fine night. As I have already mentioned my stagy inherited genes, these random thoughts may not surprise you as well. So I had an idea that maybe I discovered a time travel hack. I quickly turned on my phone and noted it. I have a habit of noting some ideas that come on my mind. They are usually a list of random research or entrepreneurial ideas that comes up on my mind. So this particular is a kinda philosophical hack. This hack won't take you before the human civilization but you will inspect all the evolution of human civilization in one picture. So let me elaborate on my idea that came up in that drowsy mind.Actually that night I was blown off by thoughts of people, how the same thing can be interpreted from a different perspective. With the course of human civilization and modernization, everything should be on its harnessed version, be it thoughts or way of lif…

Stages of Change : Where do you belong?

Image
Hello B-Nerdy Visitors,Welcome to my little world. Last night as I was savoring the enriched flavor of a chicken dinner, one of us bought an interesting topic on the table. We were so certain of our love with the non-vegetarian product, none of us could possibly imagine being a pure vegetarian. I even had to explain to my family how different types of vegetarians exist. Though I truly appreciate people being one, I can't imagine myself being on the other side. This made me realize I was in the first phase of a cycle. Oh! what cycle; let me explain.  As my theme of the blog is based on #changebeginsfromme, I am really sorry to disappoint you as I am not going to announce myself a pure vegetarian, at least not now. So let me get back to the scene. I was talking about the cycle. As I wrote about some interesting theories of the human mind on my previous posts, today this post is about Prochaska and Diclementi's cycle. It is an interesting cycle of different stages of change in hu…

A Weird Recurring Dream

Image
Hello B-Nerdy Visitors,Today I want to share with you one of my recurring dream, something too weird to be on my subconscious mind. I am one of those who hasn't seen an ocean and I am yet to take a helicopter ride. Though my existence on this earth would make a silver jubilee by now, I have done next to nothing. Surprisingly, there is this unknown place that constantly appears in my dream, which I don't recall going to. There is always a plane just about to land but still suspended in the air. Sometimes it is a regular airplane, sometimes some helicopter, or some antique aircraft. I am either in it or just over the roof of the house trying to get on it. Most of the time those planes are always in near-crash situations. Thankfully none have crashed yet in my dream. Those dreams are so indelibly vivid. I love the rush in the morning after I get up, be like "Great adventure today!" I do wonder if I was part of a similar situation in my past life or something. I wonder i…

The road yet to travel !

Image
Hello B-Nerdy Visitors,Today I woke up to a text from two different friends whom I was boosting up for a while. They happen to attend a common exam which had been postponed every now and then due to pandemic. I could feel their frustration of already being prepared but the uncertainty of the exam date. Both of them reached to the point so sickened with the await but kudos to their patience. They aced it totally. I could not walk their path but I made sure I would be there to listen and boost them. Though not the same path I obviously happen to walk on some similar path. Seeing those happy texts was like a reminder that patience and hard work do pay off.So I got one message earlier and wow! I could feel that voice echoing through those words. Suddenly I remembered there is still one friend who is supposed to get the result today. Don't doubt it, this ain't a simple exam. I hesitated if I should ask about their result. After all, it's their privacy and it's none of my bu…

Should I call it a bad day?

Image
Hello B-Nerdy Visitors,Every morning my day starts with an effort to make this perfectly boiled egg, creamy on the inside and hard on the outside. I like my egg that way, a perfect blend of flavour. I put it in the gas and head over to freshen up. Every day it's not the same; sometimes it gets overcooked and someday too slimy and watery all over that I need to redo it again. Today had a similar incident. Waking up late to a perfect song, I made my breakfast. As I was peeling it, I realized it needs a few more minutes for that perfect point. I already had my coffee made but as I had to wait for that egg to re-boil, I tried adding creamer to my coffee and wohh! I screwed up with both. The yolk oozed out of the part I peeled and the coffee, I don't even want to mention how badly I ruined it. I should have gulped it in the first place. When the inner perfectionism tries to bubble up on a clumsy one, this is what they get. So a perfect start of the bad day I guess.

Somehow I managed…

Outliving COVID-19

Image
Hello B-Nerdy Visitors,Hope you have been doing good. I was out of words last week, burnt out of nothing, all stressed. Well, then I decided to skip writing for a week. Lately, that's what I have learnt as a self-care, to know when to pause or stop. Have you ever felt so overwhelmed for nothing? You make up things on your head, you draw the lines for yourself and you suffocate. This week I want to dedicate to all those who have been infected with the virus. Few weeks back you were probably counting the number of new cases and pitying unfortunate deaths. Slowly, it comes to someone you know. It comes near you. You are the victim. You are the victim of the fear that you may get it. You are the victim of the emotional turmoil that the suffocation is on its way. If you are like me, you would probably even shed some tears imaging some hypothetical deaths. Oh is it just me? Maybe I am poured with some stagy drama on my genes.These days are not as good but it will get back to its place. …

Keeping the hopes up : Pandemic stories

Image
Hello B-Nerdy Visitors,It has been months since I stepped out of my house. I see the same faces everyday, follow the same routine. Basically it’s like living in a carbon copy of one very single day. Only thing that changes is the food on my plate and the characters of my dream. Even my social media is showing me the same boring stuff which either I can’t get in my whole life or I would never want in my whole life. Life is not as exhilarating as it used to be. Like in the movies, it seems this cycle of same day recurring is gonna stop when I amend some mistakes in my life I do everyday.Haven’t you seen those kinds of movies? Nowadays the plot in the movies are basically the same, not to some exceptional kind. You watch a trailer and you know what the whole movie is about. You can guess who killed whom. You can guess who is gonna cheat at the end. You can guess whether the hero or the villain dies. So I was talking about the kind of movies where there is some glitch in the matrix and th…
