A little something on time and destiny

My friend and I were talking yesterday. She is a little elder to me and I always look up to her for support and advice. And she always happens to say the right things. Most of the times, things that I want to hear. Its amazing. She told me this one thing yesterday.

"Everybody's story has been written in a certain way. If you ever feel weak think about that and work hard."

The feeling before and after the last exam

4 hours Before:
You are sitting in one place, holding your head. Aiming the book at angles to your eyes for just the right absorption.
 Since you decided to ignore your mother on her attempts to make you study, you have to finish the entire syllabus in those few hours.
You have already had a cup of coffee and you are on your way to finishing your energy drink.
Your friend comes in and announces that she hasn't finished her subject either. She sits down and starts cramming next to you.
Another friend who does share the subject with you shows up and you start studying together with the hope that whatever you study is asked in the exam.

3 hours swish past like minutes. At the moment, all you think appears on the paper. Some of it from the book, some from your imaginations.

After the exam:

It doesn't matter what came for the exam and what didn't. It doesn't matter what you wrote. All that matters is that its over. And it feels like a burden is lifted off the head. It doesn't matter that you have to get back to studying for something else the next day. All that matters is that, at the time you are free.

 Thanks for reading,

I love reading blogs. It started off with the question, what should I buy for college. Once I started looking through blogs, I couldn't find the end to it.

Healthy criticism is good!

I published my first post on the 5th of June. Its been over 6 months. While I could have done better, I think owing to how busy my life has been in the last 6 months, I did pretty Ok. But this isn't the end of it. With your support I have been able to publish 82 posts and this is my 83rd one. I want to do better. I read "Your opinion matters" on the blog What Kenny Hearts by Kenny Manalad. I realized that there is no better way to find out where you are lacking than asking the people who read it. And that is you!

Please provide healthy criticism to my blog. Advise me on the layout, my language, or anything else that you'd like to be different. Also if I have done a good job please do tell me. Everybody likes appraisal.

Cell phones have become such an important part of our lives that going with them for even an hour or two seems impossible. And those times when you get down to one bar remaining, are the toughest times ever!

How many times a day do you charge your phone? I've seen my friends do it 2-3 times. And I find it really amusing how their battery dies so fast. Well, here are some tips that you can use to make your battery last longer!
