Dated December 2016.
The only time I would NOT postpone and actually put a blog idea into words would be when the process of writing one would make me postpone the act of studying for a very important exam. (If the previous sentence did not make sense to you, don’t worry. My life doesn’t make any sense either. Ah, just kidding. Everything makes sense on this planet. *Lovin’ the sarcasm*)
So, clearly, any other time when a really good idea enters my mind, I think “Ah, I’ll write this one the next time I’m free. I don’t need to make note of this anywhere because it an extremely wonderful idea and I could never forget it.” A couple hundred episodes of TV series later, I wouldn’t even remotely remember that I had thought about writing anything in the first place. And this applies to almost everything I do everyday, things more common than writing.
There are times when I confuse laziness with forgetfulness because the latter is another gift I was either blessed with by god, or just something I developed over the years as an effect of my constant disinterest in doing anything that would stop me from creating e-mail accounts or countless profiles on websites all over the internet(which did not prove to be of any help anyway). And so, I end up believing that the reason I did not finish doing something was because I forgot to do it and not because I neglected it for something less important. Have you heard people say that when you believe in something with a lot of faith, it becomes true? Well, it does, in your mind. And that’s how, once again, I successfully blame my amnesia(which might not even exist) for my procrastination.
However, I cannot completely rule out the possibility of me forgetting things because there have been times when I did not realize that I had eaten only one box of my lunch at school and when I almost let my friend trick me into believing that he had returned my book(which is lying in his house even today, by the way -that’s how careless I am). And ofcourse that one moment in every student’s life, “I read this concept but I didn’t remember in the exam!” adds to my list of ‘mysteriously forgotten stuff’.
Somehow, miraculously, on rare occasions, I get lucky and remember the right thing at the right time. For instance, the last time I got hiccups in class, I remembered reading a post on the internet which said the hiccups would go away if one looks upward and swallows. I did just that and alas! My hiccups stopped. I cannot find words to describe how proud I felt of myself. Even drinking a glass of water wouldn’t have been as efficient as this trick! If only the lecturer wasn’t teaching at full pace with his eyes mysteriously traveling across the girls’ desks, I would have not kept my happiness to myself. Honestly, it felt like Archimedes’ Eureka moment!
P.S. If you’re curious(I’m sure you’re not but let me just tell you anyway), the exam I was talking about is my end-semester mathematics exam which is scheduled for day-after-tomorrow. Mathematics had always been a subject I considered my friend but now, it’s more of a foe. I can only hope to clear misunderstandings and befriend it again.
P.P.S. If you like the stuff I write(which has to be true because literally no one else visits my blog..unfortunately, google isn’t kind enough to let people wander into my rants even accidentally), please do follow me on Twitter. My tweets are definitely lame but they’re relatable, nonetheless.
P.P.P.S. Okay that’s a lot of “P”s but, please leave a comment about what you think of this post. It’s been a reeallllyyyyyyyyy long time since I got any feedback, and would love to hear some. Thanks 🙂
