I am not a blogger :P

It’s a saying that, “IF YOU DO NOT WRITE THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE YEAR BLOG OR RESOLUTIONS OF THE NEXT YEAR BLOG, YOU ARE NOT A BLOGGER!”

I did that mistake πŸ˜€ I wanted to write but it’s not important and hence I ain’t troubling and torturing you with boring and usual stuff. This site is for the thinkers and unusual thoughts πŸ˜‰

What did you do on New year’s eve? Oops! Happy 2018 to you and everyone you know and don’t know πŸ˜‰

— I hope to make more videos and become more interesting during this year ❀

— I want to read more books and smile more and behave more and grow more πŸ˜‰

What are your resolutions? Car? Home? Savings? Good luck!

Can you share some of the easy ways of saving some portion of the salary? Or investing it in anything? Because I have bad at both in 2017 and with 2018 here, I want to learn new things and implement it πŸ™‚

FYI, I don’t get excited that easily and for me, midnight of 1st Jan 2018 was same as any random day. Am I crazy already? Or I am not there yet? πŸ˜€

P.S.: Please subscribe to my YouTube channel for travel/motivational videos, Darshith Badiyani ❀ We’ll start 2018 with BELIEVE ME by Fort Minor. A separate vlog and blog coming with title “INTERESTING ME” πŸ˜‰ Are you excited? πŸ˜€

Crazy Christmas

EveryoneΒ knows December is all about celebrations, fun, and smiles. Similarly, this December of 2016 is the same for me even Christmas has not yet arrived.

I was never a believer in Santa because it all seemed fake to me. It still seems fake because of the obvious reasons like Santa is fictional. But, I realized something this Christmas, it’s the happiness which festivities bring in our lives.

In our office, we are playing Secret Santa and I was surprised to see that how Santa’s used to think OUT OF THE BOX and give several gifts to their child and make them feel happy. The smile and radiation on the face of the gift receivers was priceless. This made me realize about the true motive of Santa.

Maybe, just maybe, after going through this learning of creating happiness instead of waiting for it, made me realize that we all crave for Happiness and the more we share, the better.

I would also like to request that not to limit ourselves from spreading happiness to our near and dear ones and also look out for those who have less hope in this world and no source of happiness. If we can share some of our time with them and share quality time with them, then that’d be one of the blessed festivals for us.

Hope y’all have a great time ahead for Christmas and New year and I have started liking life more after understanding some of the many things what life is all about. Take care and see you soon ❀

P.S.: I have heard many of the Christmas songs of Michael Buble and I would like to share it. Jingle Bells by Michael Buble ❀ Happy Weekend!

Insomnia of 31st night!!

Insomnia is a disease with which most people suffer. We take credit for it( I for sure do) but many believe in criticizing it and suppressing it and follow “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy & wise.”
I sleep so very less and try to make this less time more less by keeping myself engaged doing some stuff or the other. My hobbies help me achieving this goal.
On 31st night I didn’t sleep the whole night as I was partying with my cousins & friends and had a really awesome start to 2015!! Slept @7am and due to less sleep and varied hours of sleep puked whole day but never felt like taking rest.
I knew within that this was just due to lack of some sleep and it will wither and get better and so it did. Now I am again having fun with friends and enjoying this new year with vacations going on.

Come Monday and it will be again back to daily schedule of ‘morning->office->dinner->me-time->sleep’
Acquainted, but can always cherish an unknown factor of surprise hangout or party once in a while.

How was your start to the 2015? Did you keep any resolutions? I for sure haven’t πŸ˜‰
We celebrate 31st night because we are happy that we were able to endure the whole of last year no matter what situations we faced.. Or because we want to welcome the coming year with a bang and want this new year to bring good and happy news always.. Or maybe BOTH!!

Happy 2015,
Darshith!!

Winter Solstice stay a little longer!!

Wow.. Weekend.. A book on the verge of completion.. A TV series on the end of yet another season.. A year at the brink of leaving us.. and the longest night of the year.. Yes, you guessed it right.. Come Sunday night, the Winter Solstice!!

Can’t wait.. Tonight come soon and stay a bit longer!! I am reading A Clash of Kings( Game of Thrones part 2) by George R.R. Martin.. Hopefully will complete it this weekend..
I have just 3 episodes of House of Cards s 02 left to complete.. Very Thrilling and man, Kevin Spacey has done wonders in it. The plot has been great and all the characters so thrilling and the suspense also keeps you glued to the laptop screen even it’s 4 am in the morning and you gotta go to office @ 10 am next day πŸ˜€

About 2014.. As usual full of ups and downs.. Happening year..
Had a great year in work.. learnt many things and made many friends who will definitely be with me for a long time to come.
Spent great time celebrating all the festivals. Some of my friends say, that out of 365 days in a year, we Gujurati’s spend 300 days in festivals. I can’t deny it, but it may be yes 100 days. Still a big number, but our festivals and puja are of just 30 minutes per day mostly, so its not that a big deal πŸ˜‰
2 of my best friends got engaged.. Congrats guys.. Do share your experience of after-marriage with me.. So that I can decide whether to follow that path at a slow pace or rush to tie knot πŸ˜€
Watched TV series.. no bigga deal..
Read many novels.. yes this is an achievement since last year..
Saw FIFA WC and very happy that Germany won and Bow to Miroslav Klose for making me feel interested in the sport since 2002 WC in which Germany was the runners-up 😦
Participated in a Flash Mob. Yes, I like dancing, so again achievement.
The best part is resumed blogging.. Sometimes I just write stuff not to post but to preserve.. Had stopped blogging for a long time and happy that I resumed writing and have plans to continue doing it for a very long time to come..
Donated blood, joined as a member of some NGOs.. I love to think that ‘Every little help counts’

Looking forward to the longest night & Christmas & prosperous new year,
Darshith.
