Reflecting at my life: Everything Bad about me

Reflecting on my life: Everything Bad about me I have been on Earth for sixteen years. I have done a lot of things since I was born; some are good, and most are bad. I have said and done many things - both intentionally and unintentionally - which caused pain to others that I cannot imagine nor can I ever understand. I am not a bad person, at least I think so, but my deeds are bad. There were times when people overlooked my misdeeds saying that I was merely a child, but I do not blame them as someone told me my face looks like that of an innocent person. As the saying goes, the most sinful people are dressed in the most formal attire. I am the best living example of this saying. At least, I am best at something aside from hurting others. I have committed all the seven cardinal sins in just my sixteen years of living, namely: Pride, Greed, Wrath, Envy, Lust, Gluttony, and Sloth. I have done the wrong things. How many times? That even I cannot remember. I am writing this to confess all m

Diary: How I celebrated Diwali 2023

Diary: How I celebrated Diwali 2023 Yesterday, the world celebrated the festival of lights, Diwali.  People all around the world burned crackers, but I, following my pledge, did not burn any.  I celebrated a clean Diwali, like what it used to be celebrated. I was also delighted that this year, following the regulation of the authorities, people avoided burning firecrackers significantly. I didn't do anything special this Diwali. I woke up at six, read the newspaper, went outside to bring the things my mother asked me to, and watched lots of YouTube videos.  I have a vacation in school, so I don't have to go there for a week.  I am trying my best to utilize this time in studying, but barely doing any.  Yesterday, I completed Exercise 9.4 of my ICSE ML Aggarwal Class 10 math book and mostly spent all my day on the phone. I also published a few stories yesterday as you can see by navigating the site.  I wouldn't say that I did anything productive yesterday. I would rather say,

Diary: I felt so good after preparing my best after such a long time.

Feeling better after a long time I had been not focusing on my studies for a long time. I decided yesterday that I would prepare two chapters from two different subjects. I studied Climate in Geography and HCl in Chemistry. I had never felt this better for a long time. I had always liked the feeling of preparing the chapter before it was taught in school and then answering it in class.  I had read the chapter and learned every point. Today, when my sir in the tuition was explaining the chapter I was able to answer all the questions he asked. I had so much fun discussing with my friends about different questions and teasing them with my questions. I also prepared 20 questions from the climate chapter for my friends. I will include them in a separate post. I remember all the points so well. I am not able to describe the emotions but I felt really good like before just as I used to feel when I knew every answer, like "I am the God. Ask me anything." It is 12:52 am at the time of

Diary: 28th October 2023. I should start focusing on studies

I should start focusing on studies A couple of weeks ago, I had my second terminal exam and it did not go well. The results are yet to come. I had performed worse in the first terminal and this term my biology and chemistry papers went very badly.  My concentrations from studies are fading away. There are a lot of reasons for this but one of the biggest distractions is my digital devices like my mobile phone.  I had a ten-day vacation after the exam ended and I wasted all these days on the phone. I could recall that when my second-term examinations were still going, I had thought that I would study hard in the holidays after the exam, but I certainly failed to do so. I wasted most of my time watching Anime and YouTube videos and reading useless novels that were of no single importance to me according to my curriculum. I am feeling so bad and I am also shocked at how I became like this. I spend hours chatting with my friends and when they go for lunch or study sessions, I wait for them

Just completed all 4 seasons of Castlevania

It is my vacation and I have nothing to do. I could study or complete my notebooks, but I have decided to spend most of my time on my phone. Recently, I came across a series called Castlevania on Netflix and yesterday, I completed all the episodes of the Netflix series Castlevania. It took me 2 days to complete 4 seasons of this series, which has 32 episodes: 4 episodes in season 1, 8 in season 2, 10 in season 3, and 10 in season 4. The series was created and written by Warren Ellis, British novelist and screenwriter. The series is based on the Japanese game series of the same name and the animation is also inspired by Japanese animated works. I read the story of the development of Castlevania and it was hell. The series took so long to start until it was picked up by Netflix and after then new seasons came after a gap of a year or two, mostly one year between the year 2017 and 2021. I completed this story yesterday around 5:15 pm which I started two days ago. Story Summary The story s

Working on a new story; will get completed by thursday

  Title: Embarking on a New Creative Odyssey: My Upcoming Story I have exams so I will not be able to complete this story. It will probably take 3 or 4 day to complete. I have last exam on wednesday, so I will just write a whole series and publish it as a book. Introduction The thrill of starting a new writing project is like stepping into uncharted territory. The possibilities are endless, and the excitement is palpable. Today, I'm delighted to announce that I'm embarking on a new creative odyssey, a journey into the world of storytelling, as I work on my next compelling tale. In this blog article, I'll take you behind the scenes and share my motivations, inspirations, and aspirations for this upcoming story. The Spark of Inspiration Every great story begins with a spark of inspiration, a moment when an idea takes root and begins to grow. For me, this new project was no different. It was born from a vivid dream, a fleeting image that lingered long after I woke up. It was o

Today's exam didn't went very well

I have exams going on and today was Biology. Biology is a subject in which I used to score 100 easily and it is also the subject in which almost all the classes get passed. It is not because we love the subject or we want to become a doctor something, but because of the teacher.  Our Biology teachers explain the chapters and important topics exceptionally well and also take regular tests. This time I had taken leave because I had to study Maths in which I was determined to score 100 - this also didn't end well, I will tell this story in a future post. So, I was not present during the revision classes and yesterday, I do not know why, I had not studied even a single word.  It was embarrassing staring at question paper all the time when your answer sheets were blank. I had just taken the worst exam of this term.  The questions were easy (so I have heard from others), but for me, they were really tough and I ended up leaving a lot of them. I expect marks between 40-50 out of 80. This

A Nuclear Comedy: School Science Exhibition's Quest for Energy

Title: "A Nuclear Comedy: School Science Exhibition's Quest for Energy" Introduction: The school's Science Exhibition is buzzing with excitement as students and teachers brainstorm innovative ideas. One proposal that's raised both eyebrows and laughter is the installation of a nuclear reactor. However, this isn't your typical science project - it's laced with humor and a dash of political intrigue. Let's dive into the hilarious and unexpected journey of choosing the perfect nuclear fuel. The Deuterium Dilemma: The initial suggestion was to use Deuterium (²H) as the primary fuel for the nuclear reactor. It's known for being relatively cheap and easy to obtain. But where's the fun in that? Our aspiring scientists wanted something more exciting, and they set their sights on Tritium (³H) and Thorium. Tritium Triumph: Tritium, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen, seemed like the perfect candidate. It's abundant and offers high energy yields, makin

A Remarkable Achievement: Excelling in the Mathematics Exam on October 6, 2023

Title: A Remarkable Achievement: Excelling in the Mathematics Exam on October 6, 2023 Introduction The date was October 6, 2023, a day that will forever be etched in my memory as a significant milestone in my academic journey. On this fateful day, I had my mathematics exam, and I couldn't be more thrilled to share my experience. While I aimed for perfection, scoring above 95% was a remarkable achievement that showcased substantial improvement.

Maths becomes quite boring before exams when you have completed your portion

My second terminal examinations are starting from Friday, 6th October 2023.  Maths is the first exam and I am preparing for it for over a week now. It is quite unusual for me as only two days are left for examination and I am not feeling any pressure or fear of it. Some people would say it is a good things, but I believe that when you are not taking your exams seriously, this happens.  I cannot disagree that I am not taking my exams seriously. I have completed my syllabus but I am not doing even a bit of revision for the exams. I just open my textbooks and notebooks and sit staring at it. I have wasted so much time. It is such a shame for a standard 10 student to behave like this. Whenever, I try to revise the previous chapters, I start thinking that I have solved it previously, it was easy, I would be able to solve it, but in reality I know nothing.  I do not know how to start feeling the pressure and how to create a fear, because it is the fear or love for knowledge that makes you to

How GoDaddy almost panicked me

This post can also be titled "How GoDaddy fooled me". A few weeks ago, on 2nd September 2023, I received an email from GoDaddy and the National Internet Exchange of India, informing me that my .in domain is going to expire in 30 days on 2nd October 2023. After I read the emails, I thought I had a lot of time and for a few hours did not think about it. The next day, I received a message on WhatsApp from GoDaddy to renew the domain. I thought these people irritate me a lot and close the message. When a few days later, I logged in to my GoDaddy account to check the price of the renewal, I was shocked to notice that it was 1300 Rs, much more than I had anticipated. I do not earn as of now, so I mostly have to rely on my parents to keep this website running. When I saw the price of the renewal, I was almost sure that this website was now going to be closed. Not because my parents would deny giving me the money, but because I do not want to ask for it every single time.  One day, I

Tests Over; Now completing Maths syllabus

Today was my last test of Computer and English Language which went pretty well.  I am currently completing my maths syllabus. I am planning to get full 100 marks in this term maths exam as yesterday my maths teacher told me few lines which made me really upset. Well, that is also a good motivation. Now, I am going to get full marks and show him what I am capable of.  I guess, he truly understands me. Last time, my maths paper went bad and I got only 52 out of 80, so this time I had already got 15 out of 15 in my tests. 5 marks are confirmed for copymarks and I just need to work really hard to get full 80 in the terminals. 

Afflicted by Illness and Confronted with Academic Assessments: My Dual Challenge

I had tests from Monday, 11th September and I got sick on Friday. I had a really bad headache when I reached home after school on Friday. The next day, it got worse and now my whole head was aching and there was immense body pain.  On Monday, I had the tests of Maths and Hindi, so I took medicines and started to prepare for the test.  I was not hoping that my Maths would go well, but the questions were easy, and I was easily able to score full marks.  Today, that is Tuesday was Physics and English Literature. For Physics, I had the chapter Electric Current, which is a very big chapter, and revising it a day before the test was tough, especially when I was sick.  But again, the paper was easy, and I made just one mistake with Semiconductors rest of everything was correct, even the Numericals were easy.  Today's day at school was a little bit bad. I had a runny nose today, and the whole day it troubled me a lot. Still, at the time of writing, I am sneezing and even my eyes are also c

Went to Tata Steel India Environment Meet 2023

I was one of the students from my school (Sri Krishna Public School) who were sent to the Tata Steel India Environment Meet, which was organized yesterday, on 2nd September 2023.  I took part in the Essay Competition and was informed about it a couple of weeks ago. The essay topics would be related to environmental issues and Climate Change, which was mentioned in the invitation letter sent to my school. I had practiced almost nothing in those two weeks and done most of my preparation a day before the event on Friday. I have researched a lot about Climate Change, Global Warming, environmental and social issues related to Climate Change, Policies by Governments, and Ways to control Carbon emissions and capture Carbon from the atmosphere.  I had prepared an outline for the essay which I was going to write the next, assuming it was a thousand words long.  I was confident that after all this hard work, I would surely win a prize. I usually do not care for winning prizes while going to comp

Using ChatGPT for writing project essays

  I have got a lot of essays to write during the summer vacation. I have used ChatGPT to get the first essay done. I am not going to copy it completely, I will just note down some important points and use them in my own essay. This was my prompt: “Every person must have some skill in life.” Describe an important skill that you are learning, giving the various advantages that will accrue to you after learning it. This was the reply I got: One important skill that I am currently learning is programming. Programming is the art of writing instructions for computers to follow, allowing me to create software, websites, and applications. There are several advantages that can accrue to me after learning programming: 1. Problem Solving: Programming enhances my problem-solving abilities. It teaches me to break down complex problems into smaller, manageable tasks and develop logical solutions. This skill is valuable not only in the field of programming but also in various aspects of life, such as
