#shorts: Anne Frank encouraged me to share this with y'all.

Updated: Jul 26, 2021

Today, I’m writing a diary entry about what's going on in my mind N life.


10:30 p.m.

I thought and thought and came up with no interesting idea for today’s #shorts. So I’m going to speak whatever is on my mind on the go as I’m writing this. This will expose a bit of my personal life but never mind, I trust you.


So if you ask me how‘s life?—it’s going well. Some days are interesting, some are boring to death. Btw, I went for an evening run with my brother. It was our first day today. We've registered for an event—100 Days of Running. A best friend bought me brand new shoes because he wants to support me in staying fit and my brother accompanied me on the run. We've even vlogged a fragment of it. So, the plan is we'll take little shots from our daily run until the 100 days are over, and later, my brother will assemble all the clips and produce a video. It was his plan basically, I was unaware of it till the end moment.

I also read Anne Frank’s diary (The Diary of A Young Girl) this morning which compelled me to write in my diary as well. But I’m a little lazy today to open my journal and start writing so I am writing on this doc.

My parents are watching Indian Idol right now, and I’m getting a little distracted because of the loud noise and also, we are in the same room. But I still choose to work on this #shorts.

What more can I say?

Oh, yea, tomorrow I and my brother are planning to go for a run early morning @ 7.30 which means I have to sleep by 11.30 tonight. The irony is sometimes when it’s daytime, I’ll ponder and wonder about new ideas for my blog, what content I should create, how can I write my novel better but I can’t come up with anything. My mind feels drowsy (Fortunately, this does not happen every day). And when it’s night & I’m on my bed, my mind gets the most active and I have the best ideas popping in my head. But that’s not when I want to work.

I don’t enjoy working at night, at all. Nights are for sleeping or at least lying on the bed, watching random stuff on the phone. I love watching comedy videos and food vlogs. What about you? (Tell me in the comments).

And by the time it’s morning, I don’t (usually) feel like working on my nighttime ideas anymore.

I suddenly remembered something. A friend of mine complimented me the other day. He loved my blog and my content and the design of my website. There was another friend who was literally waiting to read my recent blog post. I love to receive such messages. It’s a different feeling altogether—something that keeps me going, whether I feel motivated or not.

So that’s about it. Thanks for listening to me. I’d love to hear what’s going on in your mind too. Write me in the comments. See you tomorrow. Bye.
