What’s good in writing?

You know what’s good in Writing?

It’s the feelings, that you let flow. It’s the light heart you get once everything flows out of your heart. It’s the heaviness that rests after everything is rested and told and written.

I feel light now. At least I don’t have the regret that would always have been inside me had I not told it.

The day’s been pretty bad. It’s gonna be a good night and the start of a new exciting day tomorrow ūüôā

Cheers!

What will it take me to have a life that my brother lives, in NJ?

Lemme get the things first.

  • A 2 Bedroom house with 2 separate baths
  • A university for degree
  • A decent paying job
  • Couple of bottles of beer in the fridge every time
  • A big TV at the living room
  • A decent room with a good bed in it

+  a girlfriend .

For that, I think, I’ll be needing , in my estimates,

  • 3000$ a month in earning
  • Time to attend college
  • Time to study things at home
  • Time for my girlfriend
  • Happiness in what I do

You see, life’s fulfilled even when I’m living with 5 others in a 2-bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment. I just want things to be better. Step by step, month by month. This month, I’ll be doing 1K a month, the next 1300 and a gradual increase, with enough time for all other stuffs.

What I need to do is get my skills better. Maybe go a few hours on maxbounty? Maybe a few high paying articles? Who knows, maybe just these two thing will give me 100 grands a year ??

Cheers!

The apartment hunt

I have less than 2 weeks in Nepal. I have no place to stay in New Jersey when I reach there. My brother lives 1400 miles away from me in the States. I talked to a club senior and requested him to find me a room for rent. I rejected a room that was available. I even had a brief talk with a transgender male who had a room for sharing. My apartment hunting experience has been quite a story to tell.

With everything that’s happened, I still don’t have an apartment or a room to stay in when my college starts. I had a brief moment of relief till tonight but then Sagar’s landlord also told him to leave his place. Now neither my friend- with whom I’d planned to live with till I get a room- ¬†has a room, and nor do I. Bed bugs were the reason of his expulsion and I still can’t figure out why I still can’t find a room.

Anyways, the hunt is still on. Today, I send applications to almost 5 rentals that were available. ¬†I’m hoping for some replies by tomorrow. If none arrives, I’ll send some more application. Still, there are 13 days left. There are countless of apartments available and there’s still some time left. Hopefully, I’ll have a couple of apartments for viewing before I reach the States.

Cheers!

Work, Work, Work!

Today, I am willing to do something.

I have the enthusiasm to start working from early morning. It’s 4th of July, and I have 28 more days before I fly off to the States. I still have a few things to complete like

  • No Objection Letter
  • Document Attestation
  • SAT Score Reporting
  • Shopping

These things are going to take 3 days of my remaining time, which means whatever I want to do, I have 26 more days.

I’ll start working on one of my blogs from today. Maybe I’ll buy a domain and a hosting and register the collegepossibilities¬†blog. I see bigger prospects on that things. I’ll work a few months to generate awesome contents.

Two months, 20 posts, 20,000 Twitter Followers and 20,000 visitors on my blog every month. This will give me 200$ a month of advertising revenue and hundreds more from other streams.

I’ll start working on this from today and I’ll keep updating on how things go.

Cheers!

Homework with the kiddo 

Homeworks, everybody hates them.  Especially when you’re a kid in the lower KGs and your teacher gives you shitload of it, at least that’s what you think. You only realise that it was only abcds when you grow up and reach upper classes.

I just finished my high school and my younger brother studies in UKG. The homework he gets are repeating words , aakars and ookars. All that he has to do is write 20 words in a day and for that he wants 200 minutes in the timer. 

 That’s all his homework but he wants 200 minutes in timer. 

I miss my days in elementary school. The fun we had playing with mud,  the crazy little fights , the cows and daily swinning in janodaya’s pool. Life was exciting.

The article I wrote

Firstly, I am drunk. Please ignore my grammatical verbal errors.

I am very moved by what happened in Qatar recently. The country had to face an economic embargo from its major neighbours. Being a citizen of Nepal, I know what it is like to face an economic blockade. I know what it is like when the food prices rise by more than 100%. I know what it feels like when you have to buy fuel for nearly triple the price in the market( Qatar doesn’t have to face this one problem, at least). I know the pain when you have to buy Mo: Mo for twice the price in the same place. That sucks the most!!

Jokes aside, what concerns me the most is the condition of migrant labours from Nepal. I am not a human rights and/or labour¬†rights advocate, as long as my country is not involved. I deeply care for those who have to go out of the country to find employment, and there are millions of them. ¬†Those who have been working for the Qatari companies and those, whose life will be scrambled once and for all after these companies dissolve. I’ve already heard the news of countless of people getting fired from their jobs. People who were working for food transportation companies and their jobs are already gone after Saudi Arabiya set the embargo.

I even wrote an article, as a citizen journalist, on this matter. Here’s the link. ¬†I shared it with my friends and they seem to like it too. My brother even shared it on Facebook and my friends told me that I’m moving towards unbiased journalism and I should keep doing it.

Even before the incident, the Embassy of Nepal has not done much on the protecion of the rights of migrant labourers. We still hear the news, not only in media,not just in media, of passport snatches, no payments and abuse of the rights of people who work in the Gulf Countries. The Embassy puts a blind eye on all of that. I do not expect the embassy to work on the current Qatari Crisis. But being a citizen of this country, I care for the people who work there. Some of them are my own relatives. There are tens of people from my maternal side, working in this country for such a long time. I do not want them to lose their jobs. Or at least, if they have to lose it, I want them to be faciliated to return back to the country within days, not months.

Finally, I hope the diplomatic crisis in Qatar resolves fast. It is for the betterment of all the Gulf Counties and also the third-world that heavily depends on remittance. Nobody should be suffering for the wrong doings of the government, if it has done any.  I do not know whether Qatar funded terrorism or not. All I know is people who have nothing to do with it, even the Qataris, should be suffeing from it.

Cheers!

The lazy life

In the recent times, it has rarely happened that I did not write on the blog for more than 4 weeks. The last time I wrote was when I was drunk and dancing at Sam’s, Reef and Ibyza. Wow! That’s the last time I went clubbing. It has already been a month of distancing from the extravagant and useless spendings on alcohol and dance.

A lot has happened since then. College decisions, fees payments, mock sessions, Rotaract MUN and much more. It seems like a lot, but it actually isn’t.

In the past month, I did spend almost a week being a full-time employee level busy. But then I also spend the last week doing nothing productive. I had plans of reading the constitution, continuing my work, writing articles for CrowdH and national dailies. I even had made up my mind to stop smoking and do vigorous exercise daily. Of all these plans, the only thing I’ve done is write on my blog after 4 long weeks. Even this seems to be difficult. I can’t even form complete and grammatically correct sentences. I just keep reading the sentences I’ve written, times and again.

I seriously need to get rid of the laziness. I can’t afford to Netflix 6 hours a day at this point of time when I should be thinking deep on how to sustain in college. I only have two months in Nepal, and I need to think of creating small funnels that will pour down a thousand dollars a month. I even have plans ready for that. All I need to do is stop being lazy, think the plan and make strategies and process them.

This article marks me stepping out of the laziness. I’m geared up a bit, and I don’t feel lazy at all. I will start with my articles soon, and the more I write in the process, the better I become. Let’s hope the laziness doesn’t come back for a day or two, at least.

Cheers!
