Blogging Challenge — Day 26

Today I am having a hard time writing. Mainly because lately, I have been feeling that I am no good and many other dark thoughts.

It is 11:34 p.m in India. As usual tomorrow is going to be a very, very long day. And I have to make an early start.

There are so many things that I wish to do. Like meditate after waking up. Or read. Since I get barely 6 hours of sleep every day, it is difficult for me to even wake up, let alone meditate. And the relationship between me and reading is turning out to be like that of those two friends who just drifted apart. Without any reason.

Less reading is making my brain freeze. To write better I will need to read more.

Two books; The Gene — An Intimate History by Siddhartha Mukherjee and Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman are on my bedside, staring at me. They are still hopeful I guess.

I am not.

There are so many activities going on everyday. It is hard to not let it affect you. And sometimes I wonder if it is even worth it. Or is it just all over rated?

Right now I am scrolling up to see if this article is long enough. I know it isn’t. But then again, does it matter?

I also just checked my whatsapp messages. One of our profs who teaches us Business Communications, asked us to write a blog on any topic of our choice.

I am going to write on Writing itself. Coincidence? I think not.

This is the last week of my Blogging Challenge and it is going to be the hardest one yet. I am not even sure if I am going to be able to complete it because I have signed up for some extra courses this week and they start tomorrow. It is going to be unbelievably hectic.

What keeps me going is the fact that, I am at least not working and studying at the same time. It is quite common in America or so I have heard.

I think half of the time in India, especially in Mumbai where I am from, gets wasted in travelling.

I spend a total of 3 hours everyday on travelling to and from college. Trains have no sense of personal space due to the crowd thanks to the over population, so it is impossible to get the work done.

So yeah..every place has its pros and cons. While I don’t need to work to pay my college tuition, I have some other struggles.

My point is that I am not sure if I will be able to write at all for the next few days so I want to take this moment to tell you that you guys that you have been incredible readers and you are one of the reasons why I continued with this challenge.

I am super grateful to you all.

Thank You so so much!

I hope to see you all soon!

Take care!
