Resurrecting a dead blog !

Phew … Life has been crazy these past few months. Stuff I’m involved in right now :

  • A writing blog (the one you are reading right now)
  • photoblog
  • flickr account
  • Writing a book
  • Developing an app
  • Learning the nitty-gritty bits of guitar all of which have left me grasping for time.

(Plus, there’s an Arduino clone on its way :’) Yay !)

I suck at time management. I am probably the world’s #1 procrastinator. I head out to get something done and have this weird thought and then the next thing you know I’m reading random Wikipedia articles and watching YouTube videos, all barely related to the initial thought itself.

(By the way, what’s up with those weird YouTube suggestions? In the suggestions area, there will always be this one weirdly titled video that seems so out of place that you just have to watch it. Before you even know it, you’re watching videos titled “how to quit smoking”. Funny part about this you ask ? I have NEVER touched a cigarette in your life and here I am trying to figure out how to quit)

YouTube Fail

I hate bollywood movies Youtube. You should understand this because I have never watched a single trailer. Why then do you suggest it to me ? WTF?

 

Wow ! I just did it again – strayed from the topic. See what I mean about getting distracted? *sigh*

So anyway, I’ve been going through my previous posts on this blog and the horrors I experienced have been unimaginable since. I’ve been cringing for hours now at how immature and stupid lil old me used to be. I ended up deleting more than half of all my old posts. I have decided to start again and use this blog ONLY  for writing. I’ve got a ton of ideas for future posts just lying around in the deep dark recesses of my mind. 

Until said future posts,

Cheers 😛

WHY I WATCH NARUTO

“I won’t run away anymore… I won’t go back on my word… that is my ninja way!” – Naruto

“To become Hokage is my dream!” – Naruto

Many of my friends don’t get why I watch Naruto. Some of them think it’s childish and I should watch other anime shows like Bleach instead. Well, I’ll tell you why Naruto is way better than any other anime show.

The main reason is that Naruto unlike other anime shows has got heart.

You’re gonna say what ?

Okay … I’ll explain.

The main plot of Naruto revolves around a boy called, well Naruto Uzumaki (obviously) and his friends. These guys are ninja (which you would know if you haven’t been living in a cave). Okay so there’s Naruto, a chick called Sakura Haruno and a rather serious dude called Sasuke Uchiha. So Sasuke betrays the leaf village a.k.a Konoha (ie, the village in which Naruto lives) and runs away after a mission of vengeance against Sasuke’s brother (called Madaro Uchiha… i.e, the guy who killed Sasuke’s clan all on his own).

Anyways, so Sasuke runs away and Naruto follows him trying to bring him back (cause well, that’s what friends do). Naruto tries his best to succeed but Sasuke becomes powerful and Naruto can’t even touch him.

Okay now that you know the plot, I’m gonna tell why this show is way better than any other. Naruto’s eyes have a fiery determination in them and he never gives up even when he can barely stand. He is so determined to bring his friend back that he is willing to die in the attempt.

He constantly trains even when he has no strength left, just so that he can become strong enough to kick Sasuke’s ass and knock some sense into the idiot.Naruto’s determination and friendliness make him a truly loveable anime character.

Some of my favorite quotes : –

  • “I don’t care who I have to fight!
    If he rips my arms out, I’ll kick him to death!
    If he rips my legs off, I’ll bite him to death!
    If he rips my head off, I’ll stare him to death!
    And if he gouges out my eyes, I’ll curse him from the grave!
    Even If i’m torn to shreds, I’m taking Sasuke back from Orochimaru!” – Naruto’s determination to save his friend
  • I have long since closed my eyes… My only goal is in the darkness.” Sasuke Uchiha proving he is a stubborn piece of crap.
  • “When I look at you, I get an intense feeling in my heart… Because you’re not perfect… Because you fail… you have the strength to get back up… Because I believe that’s where true strength is… I…I think you are an incredibly strong person, Naruto-kun.” – Hinata Hyuga
  • I’m going to prove that in this world.. Heroes do exist! – Naruto

THE DECIETFUL QUESTION

The truth was evident on his face,

There was an answer someplace,

But he just couldn’t find it.

He looked around him,

At the teacher, at the children

All scribbling away on sheets of paper.

 

He felt completely dejected by the world,

That wouldn’t give him an answer,

To that deceitful question.

He felt a void inside of him,

Something was not right,

It was too much for a third grade boy.

 

He thought long and hard,

There was something wrong,

There were only seven spaces,

Where there should have been eight

He turned to the teacher for help,

It was correct she assured him.

 

Frustrated, he returned to his seat,

He thought suddenly,

Perhaps the teacher was wrong,

Yes, that was it.

Perhaps that really was the answer…

The ‘protector of the country’ had to be….

 

Triumph lit his face,

He beamed with joy.

He had conquered the test.

There could be no other answer.

There in his bold handwriting,

He scribbled ‘SUPERMAN’.

A true story that happened to me back in the third grade. The answer to the question was actually soldier but I wrote ‘SUPERMAN’ instead.
