Lockdown #3: Finding the Passion

It’s gonna take me a while to get back in the swing of things, but it is good to be writing again. Somewhere along the way, I stopped doing those things I am the most passionate about. I am not certain when or why that happened. I only know that it has been an extended period of time since I have done those things I used to be the most passionate about, writing, making beats and serious photography. The simple explanation could be that I got bored with it all. That may still be true but I think perhaps that it is more than that. I seem to have forgotten that there is a big difference between simply existing and actually living.
If I am going to find my passions again, I need to start exploring more avenues in life. I need to find out what does excite me about living again. I may choose the wrong paths along the way, but that is what learning to live again is all about. Where the heck do I start? Is there a magic secret to it all? One thing I do know about myself is that when I don’t …

Lockdown #2: Discipline

Welcome to Prateek's Lockdown Diary again, how are you guys doing ???

The longer you go without working out, the less tone you get, the more weight you gain, the less likely you’ll ever start working out again. The longer you go without posting a journal, the more anxious you get about posting one, the less likely you’ll start posting again. Same paradox.

Morning!

woke up on the sofa. The TV’s on. because last night out of sheer boredom I started watching "The Vanishing of Sidney Hall" at an odd hour but let me tell you its a great movie ! It’s 5am. You turn the TV off and you sit there. You feel a little groggy, No bread and No sugar. did the same old breakfast and watched some News again about this demon Coronavirus. Took a shower. Clean up the room. helped my mother doing the laundry.

Talked to my Life in Mumbai and she gave me few other things to think about, so I'd get my mind of this Pandemic because i just couldn't stop talking about this Covid-19 She sai…

Lockdown #1: Frugality

All my lights are off. Besides my glowing Laptop, it’s nearly pitch black in my humble bedroom. I’m wearing this Bloodshot Tee that I bought in Mumbai. I like this t-shirt because it makes me look like I'm a fan of comic series but seriously telling you that it's a lie I'm a fan of Jason David Frank that's why I wear it. Man, Quarantine is hard, just when i thought that my venture was going good, Coronavirus came for it hard and pushed it further but still here Alive and Kicking I'm that mechanic trucker boy from the wrong side of the tracks. My nose and hands are still cold though. It’s much quieter in my Area. I actually like it, for once people are following the Lockdown which is a good thing, and this silence living far away from any busy streets. hmm, Good.

Saving the Money and living with Frugality is the new cool now. I’m awake and the world might be asleep now at 12:40 am. It’s so quiet that I can hear the ringing in my ears. It reminds me of all the havoc…

“The first draft of anything is shit.” - ErnestHemingwayTo me, the reason I have trouble sitting down and writing is because I have nothing to write about. I'm forcing myself, i should just live life and write when I want to. When it comes naturally. I'm just a human being.Fucking true facts right here. the daily sequence of events is spot on. Endless circles of “but this first…” Depression is just this phase everyone goes through in life, either short or long, severe or mild, and can be a result of many different things, circumstances, brain chemistry, nature, nurture, negative thoughts, diet, drug abuse, etc. and can usually be treated with clean living (exercise, diet, sleep) and cognitive behavioral therapy (fancy term for attitude adjustment) and/or medications, as well as a healthy balance of work (that you’re preferably proud of and at least don’t hate), family, and friends.Wow I should write a textbook or something. That is if I did write regularly. What’s it been, oh …

Dear Mumbai...

Dear Mumbai,You're Beautiful and I Have a Crush On you and I know that it is early in our relationship but I have to get it off my chest following is a excerpt about really pretty girls which kinda reminds of Mumbai anyways and Job Interviews So, I recently decided to give a visit to the city I've always loved but not in July and August because nothing really significant happens there in that span other than Heavy Rain.Just a heads up that 10 months back I  met a girl in the parking lot of Delhi and all I did was say hello but she didn't respond there later on it turned out that she was my boss here. "STORYTIME"So, here how's the story has rolled out so far it is basically a boy meeting a girl, but the girl being standoffish despite the fact that he's only trying to be a gentleman. Maybe the girl has been hurt before, or just doesn't trust people easily, the two could even go hand-in-hand, because of course, that the way it goes.Different scenario, sa…

Social Lubrication and Anger Management

Social lubricant. It’s not possible to have an awkward moment when you're with me, not even after this ultimate question.

“Like what the fuck is going on!?” a straight depressive face at a Clubbing Event in Colaba, Mumbai.

duderino ! can't stop it. I was born with it. obviously the sane one understood it the second I told them but some people just like to be a little judgy but can't do anything to stop them too. One of my most endearing traits is that I think to an ultimate extent. I mean if you're with me you'll always see my weird fingers doing something, yeah, its that Anxious Lubrication happening to my body at all times.

About Anger Management: I realize that anger is a natural emotion that we can’t always control feeling but we certainly have the power to choose how we are going to respond to that anger. If we scream, holler, stomp our feet and throw a good old fashioned temper tantrum what are we gonna solve besides dragging everyone else down with us? Is t…

farce

this post is for the people who get triggered and offended on jokes made by comedians, and before starting I want to clear that I'm only talking about the comedy done by comedians and the content which meant to be for a comedic show or a movie, not for a mate hurting you in front of your other mates. 'Comedy' is subjective you might not find Someone funny regarding the content of his comedy or the way one delivers the joke. But that doesn't mean that everyone wouldn't find that funny, Different People have different sense of humor.

For Instance some people like Jake Paul, some like Key and Peele. some people like Sean Lock, or some people might like Nikki Glaser its comedy in different spectrums. Sometime it gets offensive I get it, It gets distasteful but its him/her showing the world how fucked up we all are through the medium of comedy.

Its Unfiltered to the point, brutal and to the point where discomfort kicks in but we all have to understand that is how satir…
