I turned 21 today!

Well, seems like a long time: 21 years in this world. Don’t know if I must be happy for my birthday or sad for getting older. Well, I did get a lot of wishes right at 00:00 – Hulee, Baby, Pele, Fakru, Gabri, Arnold, Vatsa wished me via IM and SMS. And I got calls from Silveron, Bottle and Sniggs. That’s about it now. All the lazy people sleeping away to glory will be wishing me later in the day I suppose! I’m planning to take them out for snacks near my college.

That’s all for now. Its 1:24 AM. I’ll update this post later. 🙂

A lot of things happened since my ‘happy’ post: Into Deep Sh**

2 years since I started blogging!

I’m very happy that, its been over two years since I started blogging (05 Apr, 2006) with WordPress.com. Before that, I had an account with Blogster.com, which was formerly Blogster.net. Anyways, it wasn’t long before I switched over to WordPress.

Where are the archives?

Well, when I started off the blog, it was mainly to put up online my large collection of jokes and email forwards. I have now moved it to a different place. (Its still under development, and I’ll give out the link once its up 🙂 ) So, I wasn’t much of a writer then; I’m not so now either, owing to the amount of ‘creative’ time I spend on writing these days.

Anyways, I read Mary’s article on her finding of a news-piece, which put forth the bad effects of addiction to blogging. And also Caroline‘s comment which linked to an interesting post. It talked of the freedom of a blogger and the sense of ‘Blogging Without Obligation’ (BWO). After thinking about it a lot, I think addiction to blogging is the safest addiction out there! 😉 😛

2.5 IS HERE!

WordPress 2.5 is here! The most awaited version of WordPress, with a huge load of features encompassing everything a blog must have and beyond it by miles! For all those who have self-hosted blogs, I don’t think I have to even ask you to upgrade, ’cause most of you would have already done it. 🙂 If you haven’t yet, stop eating that donut and get cracking! Its hot!

I’ll first be experimenting the new version for Frology! Then, later on move this blog. If my pocket permits, I might just add the domain to this blog itself. Let’s see. For now, I just can’t wait to finish writing this post and get my hands dirty!

For all those who are oblivious to WordPress, just visit the website, which by the way, dons a new look too!

Another poem and a few changes

I’ve uploaded another poem that I wrote during my school days. This is titled ‘The Little Soul’ and is one of my few poems which are very dear to me. This was a poem which won me praises by the English teacher in my 9th Standard of High School.

Its about two kingdoms gripped by conflict. And how a little soul saved the bloodshed and stopped the war. Read it here: The Little Soul

The change is very inconspicuous, unnoticeable: I’ve changed my blog name to Sterex. Why? I probably don’t have an answer right now, but I’ll leave a cue: I might be moving my blog to a custom domain. 🙂 Anyways, that should in no way affect anything on my blog.

A Story and A Poem

I posted a short story and a poem I had written long time ago. You can find the links to them on the left sidebar under ‘My Works’.

This time I re-read it, it seemed like ages since I wrote them. I still have a few poems that I will post as I get time to type them from the book.

Story: The Cold Rain

Its a story about a 10-year-old. His perception of the world and generally an insight into what happens inside the brain of a little kid.

Poem: Dreams

A poem that I wrote ages ago! Sometime in 2003 – During my school days. (Too bad I did not mention the date when I wrote it!) It was inspired by a brightly-lit, starry night sky. It is also one of the earliest poems of mine.
