The Fear of Heights (1 min read)

Hi guys, today I’m gonna talk about something I have feared ever since I was a little kid and still fear to this day, and its heights.

I don’t know why but heights just happen to suck the life out me. Every time I’m somewhere high I start to freak out and panic like a total idiot. But it’s not just about being in a high place that freaks the shit out of me, no every fucking time I see a large and incredibly tall building my heart starts to race at a thousand miles per hour and my hands start to shake and I feel like a complete loser (which I am).  And sometimes it can be really embarrassing, for example, once I was with some friends and we decided to get my friends, little sister, a toy, but the problem (for me, everyone else was fine) was that the toy shop was on the top floor, and there was no fucking elevator. I mean what type of a sick person places a fucking toy shop on like the 100th floor, I mean think of the kid)s who can’t climb up the fucking largest staircase ever.

Another example is when I went to London with my family we went to the London Eye and it was great for me until I found out we had to actually go inside a large round box thingy made completely out of glass and it just happened to rotate around a fucking wheel, and don’t get me wrong that thing was so high I swear I could see the Eiffel Tower from up there. Now I couldn’t back put off going in it as we had already bought the tickets so I prayed to God to help me survive and stepped in the box thingy, now I saw everyone around me walking in the glass box and taking pictures of the view while I sat there with my sweaty hands and racing heart beat next to an old Chinese lady who after five minutes also got up and walked around, and everyone was just staring at me like I was paralyzed or something (although I did act like it so…)

Alright guys I think this enough for now, I hope you enjoyed these embarrassing stories, and I hope they made you feel less like an idiot, cause let’s be honest no one’s as stupid and clumsy as me (yeah I’ll just go and cry in a corner alone now) bye guys and hope you enjoyed. -H

Short Book Review – Survival by Alexander S. Blackmon

51u21uWfrQL._SL250_This book is all about survival techniques and basic preparing methods to survive tricky situations. I think it is a great book for people that travel a lot or are planning to travel to places that there may be circumstances where you really get stuck. I think it’s a very useful book to have and to even keep in the trunk of your car. The only recommendation I would have is to make it longer and more thorough. I would have liked to read more and to learn more about the subject matter. I particularly like the part where it even tells you how to make your home secure. For someone living in Canada, where people don’t even lock their doors, I think this would be a “must buy”.

Identity Crisis (2 min read)

I was 28 when I realized I was having an identity crisis, with four kids around. I thought it was too late. Although during teenage life I had periods of wondering who I am uncertain if I answered that question. I realized the crisis of knowing who we are is not confined only to a particular stage but on various points throughout life.

How My Journal Saved My Life

We hardly talk about things at home growing up in my childhood.  I don’t remember any conversation except for some daily chores that needs to be done every now and then.  I was probably looking for a way to express myself when I bump into an old empty notebook and a pen. I write about the infatuation I had on a male classmate at the age of 9. Those were the thing I cannot tell my mom since I came from a traditional, old fashioned family and besides I was very young then to talk about those things. I write them anyway hoping my mom would never knew. I keep it away from her and realize later that there’s no place at home where mom would never see.

Even though muscular dystrophy attempts to lay claim to my life, I have found a few ways to come out from the shadow of my disease.  One of my pleasures (and therapies) is painting.  This creative form affords me the freedom to live beyond the limits of my physical world and to express feelings that expand beyond the limits that words impose.  The more I paint, the more I feel compelled to paint.  It is addictive and healthy.   As I work to bring an oil painting to completion, I am restoring little pieces of me.

I remember I used to write short rhyme poems when I was young, probably 4th standard, but then I didn’t really know writing is something that I love to do, I used to write because I was enjoying it. Nobody was really supporting me as they didn’t know the importance of writing, neither I don’t know what happened later, I just stopped writing. I never wrote for years. After this long gap, finally, from a couple of months writing started embracing me. Now I realized something which I failed to realize when I was in 4th std. Yes, writing is my passion and this is something that I love to do always. Continue reading Why Did I Start Writing? (1 min read)

Disclaimer: Before I begin, if you didn’t know, last year I released my very first short film to the world (or the internet).  I had never been so nervous in my life, but I was proud of my incredibly amateurish piece of work.  In the end, it was really a learning experience of how not to make a short film, but all of that will be covered in the following blog entries.  If you haven’t seen it, please watch it before reading any of the material.

“Life is like a river that’s constantly moving. It’s what we do with the River when it’s moving that counts.”

What does that even mean? Your life is a River. Whether we make a difference in our lives or not, our lives are not stopping and waiting for our choices. It keeps moving. They key to a moving river is making sure you have resources to ride the waves. If you do not have the resources, how do you get them? Ask for them. You can work to earn them.

The Miracle of Death (3 min read)

The first encounter of death I had was that of my grandfather when I was seven. I still can recall the ceremony before he was buried when some of us, his grandchildren were carried and passed over his coffin one by one. Someone on the other side of the coffin caught each one of us until everyone was over. I did not know why it was being done and I never bothered to ask anyone until now about the meaning of this ritual.
