So now I have the perfect platform and opportunity to start a blog without any inhibitions as I am currently at a Citizens Constitutional Forum Youth Advocacy Training program. Its semester break so I am very much excited about being part of it in order to keep me away from the boredom of staying at home and doing nothing. As a university student I get too accustomed with all the hustling and bustling and the struggles of attending classes, completing assignments and studying for exams that when there is nothing to do it feels so restless and stressful. Before attending the training my initial goal was to come in and meet new people and make friends with them, make good use of all the privileges such as the free food and free WIFI and atleast learn somethings which I dont have the perfect idea of what exactly I want to learn. Then when the training began the facilitator Dr Vanisha Mishra Vakaoti who is a brilliant blogger herself made us pledge to commit to achieving something within the next 24 hours. We are allowed, actually we are encourged to use social media during the training and while on facebook I came across a link to Dr Vanisha's awesome Blog site A Life Un-Styled and while reading through, it instantly occured to me that this is finally the moment that I have been waiting to start blogging. I am going to start blogging today itself, there will never be a better time to start the journey than this particular moment. I have many things that I feel passionate about and I have many moments and events which gets me thinking deeply about life. So I feel that maybe instead of just keeping it within the confines of my personal diary and within the personal conversations that I have with friends I could actually write them out in a blog. Experience so far has taught me that as humans we connect with each other one way or another, you know like those moments where we go "Oh my Gosh! I feel the same way too" or "I have had similar experiences like that too." Also sometimes what people actually say may actually inspire change within us or motivate us more. Thats why I feel that its important to share with as many people as possible what inspires and motivates us or any experience that we face whether it be positive or negative because we never know whos life it might impact out there.
