Hey, Mark Dohner...

Hey, you don’t recognize me as a conscious being, but I exist and am constantly around the like buttons on your vlogs, and I want to speak up for once, after listening to your some of your recent podcasts with Pierson  so, real quick…

I lurk and pay attention everything you do and have been since I discovered you during 2017 Summer. And from then to now you ended up becoming a huge inspiration that I never really thought I’d find or need since I’m very emotionally self sufficient and independent, and just assume I’d always value my own time and making meaningful contributions way before connecting. You’ve proved me wrong there. I know that I must feed my brain by embracing my creativity and striving to be more articulate and assertive in catering my own path. Along with learning in this unconventional way. I view you as comedic smart in multiple ways, and it’s an amazing thing to watch in the vlogs, and especially the year 2020 with your songs becoming my spotify playlist starters.

Lockdown #5: Self-Control

do you guys ever try not to do something, its tricky isn't it "Self-Control - A Stigma". I guess if we all had perfect Self-Control we would be these movie gods and rockstars but that is the thing we are not and to most of the extent that is fine. The point still remains the same why can't we control ourselves, Ironically the movie "Fight Club" (oh, yes i am movie nerd) is not about Physical Fighting it is about what you want ti choose a Chick or a Broccoli, Reading a Book or Reality TV. It showed us that the Self-Control is the epitome to ultimate spirituality we face everyday. Like Meditation is Free, Fasting is Free, Showing Gratitude for things is Free, Spirituality is Free but Consumerism isn't Free. It is a Trap actually Consumerism is the exact opposite. It contains Strong animalistic desires Sex, Sugar, Porn and Junk Food of any kind and We can actually escape this trap of Consumerism and Ego.

WE CAN BECOME FREE, if we only just try...

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…

“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 …

Accountability

"Hey" it is needless to say this word here, I bet no one expects posts from a person who prefer daydreams over reality. So, actually there is nothing new with me I've been Avoiding boredom and Avoiding accountability. How did I get here? Everything hurts. My mind is foggy as hell. I hate everyone and everything. I need to bite my tongue and save face as best I can. Avoid people.
Next Month I'm off to Mumbai for a few days Drinking lots of water because the trainer said so also I don't want myself to be turning into a Junk Food eating werewolf.
I cleaned my room. Sweating and with drawling and hating myself. Shame and guilt flooding my thoughts. I should finally write that final excerpt for my client Will I ever learn? something is wrong with me. My place is clean now. I still feel stable. I’m gonna read now until I fall asleep. Keep chugging back some water. It’ll be about a week or so before I feel good again. That’s what I get. Atoning for my sins. 
I still re…

Elections

I don't believe none of the leaders the media is mentioning today everybody is crying and calling out each other for attention they don't care about the people or the country they actually only care about if their political party is in power or their pockets are filled with more election funds.so lets see what are they actually standing up for also I am not gonna mention them by their names:

1. The One: 

'A Narcissist can't die because then the Entire world would end' this sentence describes our Current Prime Minister really well in my opinion he cannot answer one single question in a proper debate and yet he wants movies to be made on him. 5 years back when he came in power and made a lot of promises and by saying A Lot i really mean "A LOT". The Bias Pre-Electoral Polls are rooting for him, Bias Media is rooting for him wherever he goes all he talks about is the failures of Governments before 2014 but not a single word about the promises he made to the …

Diligent March

Its been over a month now since i last posted a excerpt from my life here... actually i was really busy this whole time. I pursued professional writing during this time, traveled a bit, celebrated Holi and most importantly: Lived my life. Back in February of this year I was at an improv class of my theatre where we were working on different techniques of improv acting obviously i am not an actor or an on screen performer i am more into the scripting and writing stuff but its a class so you have to do what your mentors tells you to do... they gave me a task to present a weird situation at a public bus terminal... It was Comedic in Genre and everyone knows i have resting depressed face. so i took a quick minute to thought about it and did my gig... it wasn't too bad our theatre coach said "Sometimes it is good if you're not leading a performance to a comedic ending" means it is okay if you're not funny sometimes just focus on doing your part right forget about audi…

Anyway

Hey, Everyone its been a very Longtime Welcome to my world it's a psychedelic trance.

So, What do you want to do? If you don’t know then you don’t get to complain about your job. I should add this only applies to single people without any dependents. If you have a family to feed, then you should feed them the best way you can.  Anyway, you quit your job. figure out what you wanna do. As my favorite person in the world my Editor put it, “the playing field is level.” I watch a lot of movies. I eat. I sleep. I code. I read books. I exercise. I hang out with my friends. I help my friends with their projects.  I go to the malls for shopping. I write. I listen to music. I scroll through my socials. Time is actually very easy to “waste”. But i don’t understand that concept. John Lennon said that any time enjoyed isn’t wasted. I really do enjoy most of the time that I "waste". So, why don’t I work more? Because burn out is real. There’s a balance in all things. Most people &quo…

Key

Bad Dreams i don't know how to get them out of my head, my 15 year old self didn't wanted me to be a Writer, he must've thought it would be a hard life pay is not going to be good and you can't always come up with good stuff but now at the age of 21 I think I'm ballin even though i have less fortune but still it opened a great variety of branches for me and everybody knows that every career is hard in one form or other and if you find that one thing which you Love it than you just Love It. Getting into  what i love about writing  so much ??? is simple first and foremost i get to be free, i get to see people and change their character to anything i want. I wake up every morning with this same motto: Another day another story to tell life is running its course let the chips fall wherever they may. Writing taught me that life is a movie only time will tell what is going to happen next don't live in the past be here now don't worry about the future just get ex…

unflattering description

Words play an active role in everyone lives, well surely it does have a lot of importance in my life last week, i got reviewed by my editor and it was terrible. There is still a lot of work needed to be done, my editor; she is really good at what she does and always tells me if i'm going wrong that is actually what i admire the most about her. She wrote a one-liner about my unpublished manuscript stating "Writer is presenting an unflattering description !" and after i got the e-mail i saw UNFLATTERING DESCRIPTION was written in bold and my spirits went down. but, that is the thing you get down and some things come to cheer you up. The bad is the enemy of the best, I have a good life i got better since last year i remember when I was sad. I really don't like talking about being sad. I think the term "depression" is overused, If it’s circumstantial, then you’re just sad. And there’s so much more stigma about being sad than being depressed. obviously I didn&#…

Hot Day !

"Life isn’t about someday or yesterday. It isn’t about what could have been or what may someday be. It’s about today, right now, this very moment. It’s about falling in love with the world around us every day." - Nope, the lines written in the inverted commas aren't true by the way today was a very hot day and i had to do some very important work on a project outside my man cave, by this i mean i love to do the work but i can't take those hot air slaps and the level of humiliation this warmth season is giving me. Other reason i don't like working outside in the summer is that i am SUPER SWEATY.

My body produce so much sweat that i could fill a bucket of it everyday, oh yeah... it is that disgusting and all of this happens even if i'm standing in the shed of a tree or something else. It was a very disturbing day for sure and i don't like to blame consequences but today it was 1000 %  this hot day's fault.

Valentines

Hello, Everyone ! Turned 21 years old last week, thank you for the wishes. It is Valentines Day and i felt that i should write to the most amazing feeling you can experience in life which is "LOVE"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear Love,

My dear, it is not that i fear falling in love, i am in love with many things in this world. I love animals, i love my family, i love my friends, i love sunsets, i love Drew Barrymore(celebrity crush) 😉😉😉, i love a lot of things. what i do fear, however, is falling so deeply in love with someone and investing my life into theirs only to discover that they do not feel the same about me. To me, that is how you die while still breathing and you can never recover from that no matter how hard you try. The scariest part about that is that you're never going to know if you're falling for the wrong person. This is what i'm afraid of, Otherwi…
