Quick Question

Good-morning guys! 

What exactly is the difference between views and visitors to your blog? I need a bit help with this one. 

Also, if you don’t mind, please add the ‘Press This’ button to your blog incase I (or anyone else) wants to reblog your posts. I’m sure you like reblogs too, so please go ahead and do it. I’ve been trying to reblog posts, but most of your blogs don’t have that button. Check how to add the ‘Press This’ button here.

Hope you having a wonderful day! (If you aren’t, go take control of your day and make it wonderful!) 

With Love. ❤️

Question Of The Week – Q1

Ciao readers! 😇

It’s a new day, in a new month. So I came up with something refreshing. I decided that every Thursday I’ll be posting a question in my blog, under the sub category ‘Question Of The Week’.

This question could be a personal question, a brain teaser, reflections of life, personality check, philosophical or even completely silly, twisted and random.

It’s upto you to answer the question or not, down in the comments. This way we could interact and get to know each other better. You have the entire week to answer this question. 😝

Oh! And you may wonder, my answer to the question? (Because it is about getting to know each other yeah?)

The following week when I post a new question, along with that I’ll post my answer to the last week’s question.

This way, you would have to be in touch, for this to work. I think this will be fun! Let’s give it a shot shall we? 🤗

Read the answers of your fellow bloggers, reply something to them if you want to or feel like it by all means, just communicate, make friends and have fun!

With Love. ❤️

P.S. – I’ll start with a really easy and sweet question, to get you going.

Question – What is your favourite childhood memory? 🤖🤡👾

Discovery Of Widgets

I love widgets, cuz they make your blog so user friendly. So you could only imagine my excitement when I discovered a new widget (which had been always there). Yayyyyy!! 😬

You can follow me via email now, to get an email everytime I post something new. This way, you won’t miss a thing.

With Love.

P.S. – I know I’m not like a professional blogger who keeps you at the edge of your seat or anything of the sort. But it was really exciting adding that widget. Cheers! ✌🏻

P.P.S. – If you don’t know how to add widgets to your blog, here’s a quick guide.

Step 1 – Log into WordPress. Go to your blogsite (these are screenshots from a phone, it’s almost the same thing via a computer). At your right hand side bottom corner there’s a set of tools (customise button), press on it.

Step 2 – It’ll take you to a page like this. Click on widgets.

Step 3 – That’ll take you a page like this. Select wherever it is that you want your widget.

Sidebar – On the side of your blog (your right hand side).

Footer – At the bottom of your blog.

Step 4 – Press the button ‘Add A Widget’.

Step 5 – That’ll take you to a page like this. Select whatever the widget you like. (I’ve selected the one which allows your readers to follow your blog via email.)

Step 6 – Last but not least, it’ll open up a page like this (depending on the widget you want). Customise until your hearts content and press the button ‘Save & Publish’.

Hope that helps! Happy Widgeting! 😬

What A Woman Wants From Her Man

So I’ve been thinking about how serious my posts have been lately, and I figured I’m going to write something real smooth this time. Wait wait. My article hasn’t started yet.

Hola Gentleman (and ladies) !

Women.

Describe women with one word. What’s the first word that crosses your mind?

Come on. Think about it just for a second will ya?

  • If you are a regular man this is probably what you were thinking, “Complicated”.
  • If you are an irregular (😂) man these are what you would have come up with, “Feisty, Sensitive, Bossy, Hormonal, Pushy, Clingy, High-maintenance 😒” and a hundred more along those lines.
  • If you are a lazy man, “Is there even one word you can describe them with?”
  • If you are a hopeless romantic, “Loving, Caring, Sweet, Kind, Adorable, Charming, Admirable, Supportive, Exquisite”. (Yes, I can go on and on cuz I’ve got a million nice ways to describe myself. 😉)

Take a look at that list of words. Oh my! I think due to the excessive ways of describing a woman, the best would be ‘Complicated’. *Round of applause for all the regular men out there*

The only things a woman really needs are food, water and shelter. However because women are so complicated they ‘want’ a lot of things from their man (other than love, respect and support of-course). I’m going to help you poor clueless souls just a little bit. Thank me later.

Let’s start with the most serious stuff. Take this list very seriously.

  1. Make her feel safe – She really does feel like the safest place in the world is in your arms. Hug her. Ask her to close her eyes. Whisper something in her ear, something comforting, something she’ll like to hear (mean what you say – she’ll know if you don’t). She’ll start listening to your heartbeat and she’ll feel safe immediately. Yes, it’s that easy. Why is it that you still figure out a way to make her feel not safe?
  2. Be honest – Don’t lie to her. Lying is the easiest way to create some tension between the two of you. This doesn’t mean you have to be brutally honest. For instance, if she’s having a bad day and she looks terrible and she asks you “Do I look bad?” , she’s asking that not for you to tell her, “Yes, you do”. She already knows that.
  3. Acknowledge her – Show her how important she is to you. (She wants to be one of the most important people in your life – the most important in fact.) Trust her completely. Appreciate everything she does. See her as an equal in everything (you could even see her a little bit higher than that, she’ll love it). Have your eyes only on her. She knows she’s not the most beautiful woman in the world, she’s not stupid. However, she does want to be the most beautiful woman in the world in your eyes.

This list you could take slightly less seriously (at your own expense),

  1. Be a good laugh.
  2. Surprise her from time to time.
  3. Say ‘I love you’ whenever you feel it.
  4. Don’t be too insecure.
  5. Give her any space she needs.
  6. Tell her she’s beautiful.
  7. Never forget her birthday (including her parents, her siblings) and anniversaries.
  8. Respect her privacy.
  9. Be protective of her.
  10. Make an effort with her friends. (Don’t you dare interpret this wrongly.)
  11. Laugh at her jokes (even if they aren’t all so funny).
  12. Like her cooking better than your mums (or pretend, if it’s that bad).
  13. Be happy for her to spend time with her girlfriends.
  14. Don’t wait for her to apologize after an argument.
  15. Love her mum almost as much as she does.

Here’s a funny list of ‘things your woman wants from you’ I found on the internet. 😁

Be sincere. Do anything and everything you want to do for her, but make sure you do it sincerely. Don’t pretend. Don’t meddle with her feelings. Remember – She is not a game. Warning – Treat her like a game, she’ll show you how it’s played.

With Love.

Hydrocephalus

Hey guys! This is my friend’s story. He’s the one who helped me open up this blog. I think his story is very inspirational. You might wanna read it. Happy Reading! ☺️

It was February 2015 when I started to get these really bad chronic headaches, not the normal ones that you usually get, and they used to easily last for 2-3 minutes in which you can do nothing. That’s when I found out that I have hydrocephalus. I knew I had some kind of thing planted at both sides of my head that connects to my brain. I never knew what it was and since it never bothered me I didn’t even pay attention to it. Once when they started, I woke up in the middle of the night experiencing a piercing pain which I couldn’t handle. I had to wake my parents up. Dad immediately sensed that it was not a normal headache and something was wrong. Instead of seeking medical attention my dad and I went to get a tablet that I used to take when I was little. The headache calmed down but that wasn’t it. I continued taking that medicine. That’s when I got the chronic headaches during my classes. I used to leave all my work and just concentrate on the headache until it was normal. Later in March, I think it was the 5th of March, I got the headache again at home and I lost consciousness. I was rushed to the hospital where I’ve been going since I was 8 months old for the same reason. They medicated me first and I was fine, so my dad took a “Leave On Medical Advice” and decided to bring me home. A few days later the headache resurfaced and I was rushed back to the hospital. The doctor who later operated me told dad the entire procedure I had to go through. My dad got a little tensed and decided to try another hospital to which I was taken in an ambulance. There the doctor simply said that all they would do is operate me for a third shunting which could have been worse. (Please note that all this, I was told later on.) I was unconscious to actually know what was happening. I was on the verge of suffering from a haemorrhage. At 6am I was operated on to remove the two shunts and to insert a temporary external drain to drain out all the bleeding that had occurred during the process. During that time I was bed bound in the hospital. I was only able to get up if a physiotherapist helped me out and if the drain was closed, but that too for only five minutes. Twenty days later, I was operated on again for a new shunting. On the 27th of March 2015 I finally got discharged.

I did not write my mock exams and I suffered greatly academically. I wrote my CIEs and ended up getting a CDE. I got a C in Maths just because I was able to get help from my Math teacher during her office hours. I was devasted seeing my transcript but decided not to give up. I opted for Business since that was the subject I had an E in. I worked as hard as I could and on Thursday when we finally received our result I looked at my grades. CCD. Something I’ll still call an achievement. My grade dropped in maths but I was not disheartened. I got admission to SZABIST and now am on my way to pursue my degree in Computer Sciences, something I always wanted to do. I am now living normally and I don’t even notice having a disease. Obviously it’s still in the back of my head and I really don’t mind people talking to me about it.

All in all, I would just like to say “Life knocks you down in several ways, but it’s your decision to get back up or not!” Have an optimistic approach to life because your interpretation and the way you choose to deal with things matters a lot. Peace!

My Aeipathy Besides Writing

To those of you who aren’t familiar with what aeipathy means, it means what the featured image of this blog says,

An enduring and consuming passion.. 💙

In my post about why I started blogging, I mentioned “Capturing photographs is what I do in my past time..”

Yup you smart person, you guessed it. In this post I’m going to share some of my snaps with you. 😬

Before I do that, here’s a list of what I love about photography. Fair warning, you might want to take up photography after you’ve read this list.

1. Photography changes the way you see things – No place in the world is boring if you love taking photographs. There is something to offer everywhere.

2. It’s a journey of self discovery – The photographs you take reflect your feelings. They reflect what you truly find beautiful.

3. It’s a challenge – Yes, it’s pretty simple when you think about it. Just take a camera, point at something nice and press the button. Yet, with time you realize how much more it is. You learn new things. You explore.

4. You capture a moment which might never be reproduced – There’s nothing more to say about that. It speaks for itself.

5. You get to share it with your loved ones – This is exactly what I’m trying to do via this post. 😉

6. Anyone can do it – It doesn’t have to be professionally, but I love how anyone can do it if they put their heart and soul into it (then again anyone can do anything if they put their heart and soul into it, but let’s stick to the topic shall we?).

There you go. I didn’t want to make the list too long, and keep you waiting, so I reduced it as much as I could. Enjoy (if it’s enjoyable) ! 😇

With Love.
