Diary: 4th March 2024

Diary 4th April Today was my Physics exam. I had hoped to score full marks, that is 80/80 on the exam, but sadly I will hardly even be able to score 75 on the exam. According to the experts, today's question paper was rated "moderate" in terms of difficulty; I can never argue that. The questions today were so easy. I wish I had looked up some key concepts again. The concepts that came today were not very important, and one would also say these topics would never be asked in exams. They were not directly asked. Instead, the questions made the use of those concepts subtly.  It was 28th February 2024. It was the day of my Geography 2024 ICSE Council Standard 10th Examination. The exam went well; I would not say great. The questions were easy in Geography despite my negligence in studying the subject the previous night. It is not like I had not studied even the slightest. I just had never taken the subject seriously all year. The exam went well and I am hoping around 70/80. T

13th February 2024: Made Red Background in Adobe Illustrator

13th February 2024: Made Red Background in Adobe Illustrator As I said in an earlier post, I have been upskilling my digital art-making skills to make new illustrations for my website easily. The illustration shown above is one of the most recent of my art pieces. It is not that good that it can amass appreciation from many people, but it is at least good enough that I thought of posting it on the website.  It took me around 30 minutes to make this background, and I will never use it again. But it was a good memory and it indeed helped me learn a new thing or two. From now on, I will try to make a digital illustration each day and post it here on the site so that I can showcase my terrible artwork with you all.  I have found a new interest in making digital illustrations nowadays and I feel like I am in a completely different space that is separated from our real world. When I am working on drawing a new illustration and unleashing my creativity, it feels like time is passing like when

Tuesday 13th February 2024: Practising Toposheet for Geography

  Tuesday 13th February 2024 Its 11:27 am on the 13th Febrauary 2024. I am currently sitting on the chair in front of the study table. I have opened my Toposheet book page number 32 and currently solving Map 5: Survey of India Map Sheet No. G43S10 — Eastingd 50-60, Northings 13-23.  My Geography ICSE class 10 board exams are coming near and I have only 1 day gap before the geography exam so I need to work hard.  I also don't have any special preparation for geography, nor do I have any special interest in the subject. I usually get around 70 out of 100 in the subject so I need to work hard for the boards as this subject will be important in gaining marks in social studies which comprises Geography, History, and Civics.  I am not doing much preparation as my friends are doing and also I am still not serious. I do not know how they incite the feeling of seriousness inside me but I will still try hard to study the subjects. I also do not have any particular interest in arts subjects a

Chemistry PreBoards Exam Tomorrow

  Chemistry Ch 12E Alcohols Tomorrow on 4th January 2024 I have my chemistry pre-board examinations. In the 2nd terminal, I performed far below expectations, but this time I have made sure that is not going to happen.  I have practiced numerals, done all the mole concepts, and also memorized the values and the important formulas. My preparation is going quite well and I have aimed to try to score full marks this time.  I am currently doing the Organic Chemistry part E, Alcohols.  I have remembered all the preparations, and the names of the processes used and I am quite confident that I can make the reactions on my own so I am not memorizing them.  It is 9:08 pm at the time of writing and I have only the theory part left to complete which I am gonna complete before sleeping.  After Chemistry I have biology and then English Literature.  I will not be able to post anything for these 3 days on the site.  I also wasn't able to get time to post a new year article.  I have decided to main

I have my Maths Pre-Boards Exam in 7 hours

I have my Maths Pre-Boards Exam in 7 hours It is 1:07 am on 16th December 2023 at the time of writing.  As someone who has an exam in 7 hours, I should have been fast asleep till now, but I decided to scroll through my phone and read Tweets (nowadays called X Posts I guess).  This may look like an odd behavior. When people hear of a child having an exam the next day, they imagine the child staying awake all night and preparing hard for the examination. Surely, I should be doing it too but I rather chose not to. The reason for my strange and out-of-common behavior is that I have already done quite a lot of practice. I have reached that point when I try to look at a question in my ICSE ML Aggarwal Maths book, my lazy instincts kick in and I suddenly don't want to do it anymore. When I am talking about this strange behavior of mine, I should also be adding how I spent the previous day of my Maths Pre-Boards Examination. I don't need to share my personal, but I want to extend this

My Pre-Boards are starting in 3 days from 16th December

My Pre-Boards are starting in 3 days from 16th December (In the picture above, I can be seen solving Chapter 1 GST from my ICSE Std 10 ML Aggarwal book in my tuition notebook with a pencil) Exams are one of the very few things that make even the most arrogant teenager wet his pants.  I don't really "love" exams as some nerds do, but I also don't hate them. I somehow always succeed in scoring good marks despite my average preparations and little effort.  Most of my peers indeed get pressured exams and they think, "Now, I am only gonna study and do nothing else." My father doesn't agree with this kind of treatment for the examinations. He always says, "Never study for an exam because examinations are conducted on what you have studied." I have my maths pre-boards in 3 days. I am doing a little bit of preparation and somehow I  am still not serious.  I have 20 chapters in the book and I have still a few left untouched.  "What, are you saying

Life Update: I am on leave from school for studies

Life Update: I am on leave from school for studies Exams are an important part of a student's life and in India, Std. 10 examinations hold a prestigious position in the people's mind.  Before giving my main Std. 10 Council Examinations in February 2024, my school will take Pre-Boards Exams, keeping in mind the format of the Boards Examination strictly.  I have my Pre-Boards starting from the 16th of December with Maths as my first exam. With 11 days left, I have no preparation at all.  I am not going to school to prepare for the exams at home, and in so many days I have done some preparation.  Most of my time is spent on the phone and scrolling through the Internet. I have decided not to work on any stories for the website for the time being, but I am still holding my phone most days.  Starting today, I will study with all my might. I promised someone to score more than 95% marks. While the target seems very hard, seeing I scored barely 80% marks overall.  I will focus on Maths

I feel jealous whenever someone interact with whom I admire: Reflecting at my emotions

I feel jealous whenever someone interact with whom I admire: Reflecting at my emotions There is someone special whom I admire. She is a fellow student, a friend, and a trusted companion. She is like a river, which flows and removes the dirt of sadness, anxiety, and misery from the canal of my life. She is calm as water which assists me in travelling the path of my tough life in innumerable ways. She is as versatile as clay, for she becomes a friend with whom I can share my feelings, a teacher who guides and looks over me, and a partner who supports me through the various challenges of life.  Her charming persona has a calming effect on me. No matter, how bad the day went. When I sit with her to study, all the worries ebb out of my mind. Her misty voice resonates with the warmth in my heart and creates a melodic symphony so subtle and sweet that only I can hear. When she speaks, it is like she is enchanting her surroundings, for I find myself lost in the epic melody focusing on the each

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

Unveiling the Significance of "Hearts and Hands" in O. Henry's Short Story

A detailed article discussing the title justification of O. Henry's short story, "Hearts and Hands." Title: Unveiling the Significance of "Hearts and Hands" in O. Henry's Short Story Introduction: In the world of literature, a well-chosen title can serve as a doorway to the essence of a story, offering readers a glimpse into its themes, characters, and underlying messages.
