What’s with all the blogging?

So a lot of people have been asking me lately, “what’s with all the blogging?”.

Sources tell me that blogging is actually the master plan of Bin Laden to keep sure that all the clever minds (me! me!) is kept occupied writing random crap on the internet to be read by other clever minds (you! you!). And while we are busy being clever, he cleverly takes over the world and rules us all.

Anyway, whether the rumour is true or not, I do definitely know for sure that blogs can save lives (only mild exaggeration)!

Yep!

As you know, I used to religiously read others blogs last year to pass my time in my old job (I used to finish my work faster than they could give me, so I had a lot of free time then). Anyway, when I realised that corporate life is not as exciting as I hoped it would be (don’t get me wrong, pay day is the best day), I thought maybe I should study some more (better degree=>better pay=>better pay days). Am I clever or what?

Long story short, I had to write the IELTS exam in order to apply to the universities abroad, to show them that I am proficient enough in English.

For those of you who don’t know, this exam has 4 sections – listening, reading, writing and speaking. Now in the speaking round, the interviewer generally asks you random questions to answer, and then gives you a topic, on which you have to speak for a minute.

The topic I got was “an interesting TV show that I saw recently”. Now I rarely watch TV, and when I do, its just for mindless gossip on celebrities, latest movies and songs, before I get bored of that as well, and turn it off. So when my interviewer asked me to talk about this particular topic, my mind went totally blank. I just couldn’t remember the last time I saw TV, let alone anything interesting on it. And it would seem totally chicken-ish (and probably negative marks), if I told the interviewer that I don’t see TV.

It was then that I suddenly, miraculously remembered this post by Chris (click away, its hilarious stuff). So I just narrated that post how I remembered it, to the interviewer. She bought my blabber and I passed! Woohoo!

Now thanks to reading that particular post, I have managed to get admissions in Universities. Thanks to reading that particular post, my future is safe(r) now. So it is only fair to humanity that I too start blogging, for you never know how my blog, maybe this particular post infact, saves you from a psychopath serial killer tomorrow.

Or not.

PS: Tomorrow, my good friend Arjun will be guest posting here, as I have a holiday, and I strictly don’t blog on holidays.

  1. Interesting one, i hope someday this 10 mins which i spent reading this blog will repay me in someway 🙂

    It will, trust me!

  2. So you going abroad for studies?? Good, actually too good.
    After college you still have courage for more classroom studies 😀
    That Obama/Osama part was too good 🙂
    (You should have included Obama as well, however they hardly have any difference :))

    They say studying in an NIT prepares you to face anything in life!
    And thanks, but I didn’t want to offend American sentiments by taking a crack at Obama!

  3. Where’s the guest post by Arjun???

    Coming soon!

  4. Mmm.. I’ll let you know if your post saved my life, especially if it’s from a psychopath serial killer : ) I feel the same way – kind of – because I read the blog of a French girl almost every day, and it helps me being aware of what’s happening there. I’m a French guy living in California, and it always impress my friends when I tell them about the news in France haha! I won’t tell them I get all this from a blog XD

    Now you can impress them with news about India!
