Concentration is one hell of a thing. You need to concentrate to work well. You need to concentrate for a better view. But what if this so called concentration is stuck at something or someone. That is when you need to distract yourself.
Once I read one of the Actual Advice Mallard meme which said “Don’t take yourself so seriously, nobody else do”.
That is probably true to a great extent. Maybe not all true. I mean, if you’re going to confess in front of your family that you are having suicidal ideation, they’ll probably freak out. So yes there are always people who cares, for real.
When we get bored, we often skip to movies and games. That’s most me too. But still there’s more. Over this vacation of more than 30 days, I had watched more than 40 movies and I’m still on the spree. Although I don’t like spending this much of time in front of a screen, but at the same time I cannot resist myself. My greatest time killers in order are below.
-Movies and Shows.
Enough said, you know what I mean.
-Guitar and musical instruments
Over the vacations, I improved my skills in guitar, as well as keyboard. Although I haven’t bought a keyboard yet, i’m using an application which turns you PC keyboard into a Musical keyboard.
I got myself made a custom Cajon, and I’ve been thumping it since then.
I’ve been learning on how to make music, and so far I’ve found it is difficult.
Chess: You might say its just another game, rather board game. Yes it is, but unlike others it has an addiction, either you lose or win, it makes you play more and more. I’m on chess.com by the name ixabhay if you want to catch up.
Money is one of the greatest three factors in one’s life beside fame and power.
In college life, no matter how much amount of money your parents would send you, at some point we find it still less. Here is my approach on how you can save on your money in little things and spend it wisely.
-Buying Gadgets and Equipments
Ever heard of OLX.in, you sure have. It is one of greatest classifieds ad site India have ever got.
This place is right now my favorite for buying out mobile phones. You might say, “when you’re spending 10-20k of money in a phone why not buy a first hand phone?”
I would like to explain this with an example. Consider, you want to buy Samsung Galaxy S4, the market price of which is currently around Rs 40 to Rs 45,000. Now if you would simple do a little search on the classifieds, you can easily find the desired phone for about Rs 32-35,000. Now this phone would come in full warranty, as it is newly launched.
This saves you around Rs 5 to Rs 10,000 straight. Similarly you can look for musical instruments too. Say an acoustic guitar. Which is a great thing to buy second hand.
-Using Coupon Codes
There are sites like Groupon.com which provides you coupon codes for various other shopping websites. You can also use Snapdeal.com for same. Did you know, ebay’s newsletter occasionally contains coupon codes. They can easily save you Rs 100 to Rs 2000 in single purchase.
When buying from retail store, ask for a membership card. They give small small discounts on small small purchases. Though these discounts are very small, they get credited in your card.
