I recently read somewhere, "I loved him, but I was not in love with him," on which a friend of mine said that it's like "I ate food but the food didn't go through my oesophagus." Keeping genders and the fact that it was meant to be a light-hearted joke aside, my friend's statement resembles… Continue reading Love and Being in Love?
I think it's time to change it from "a blog of mine" to "my blog". This is because I am not a blogger, who also pursues higher knowledge in other fields; but a person seeking higher knowledge in some fields, who also likes to blog. To give you an idea, I am working towards getting Masters' Degree in… Continue reading From “A Blog of Mine” to “My Blog”

I took three of the blogs I like the most and have decided to go through the whole of… Continue reading Going through One Blog Archive at a Time
As of February 2016, WhatsApp had a user base of one billion, making it the most popular instant messaging client. WhatsApp was founded in 2009 by Brian Acton and Jan Koum, both former Yahoo employees, and the messaging feature that WhatsApp is known for actually came to be in WhatsApp 2.0. I was first introduced… Continue reading What is the Future of WhatsApp?
The pace of publishing new posts has been relatively low lately, and it will be so for some time as I’m preparing for exams – college exams, a professional certification course exams, and at least two entrance exams. I do try my best to allocate some of my free time to writing new posts and… Continue reading Posting Frequency and Curation
Medium was shown as a recommended app in Google Play Store. It had a good rating and was an app for reading and writing. So I thought, why not. Upon installing and opening the app for the first time, I instantly fell in love with it. It is essentially a platform for reading and writing,… Continue reading Medium was a Compelling Medium
"Jeg lærer Norsk, og jeg elsker det." I am learning Norwegian and I love it. Norway is a place I'd like to live in, for some time at least, and one of the places I'd like to visit.
