Finally the big day has arrived-- I decided to create a blog :).
After searching and analyzing some blogging sites i selected this one (Reason : my manager's blog is also here ;).
But just right after selecting a template and a theme for this i was completely stuck ; what to write in about me section ?? how to describe myself ??
And every time i started it all over--- i had the term Software Engineer dominating me.
The only things that came to my mind were -list of technologies, languages ,frameworks , number of projects-----my blogs, my social networking profiles , instant messenger addresses , my email id's, video channels and all those things which put my identity as a software engineer.
Then a silent thought came into my mind "....hey is this what you are and what you really love ??" and then a discussion with my mind.
my mind: Do you really love being software engineer ?
Me: Yes y not i have always loved coding and its the best thing is "my hobby is my profession".
my mind: Cool , but how about your other hobbies-- you love to sing right??
Me: Yeaaa i like singing but i am not so good at that.
my mind : How about your guitar . you play it fairly well , remember that day you played sajni with Raman ??
Me : Yes its my hobby and i love to play jal. But i can't make it profession. And when it comes to coding --Coding was my first love .
my mind: Are you sure.. You start singing when you were seven or eight. And Coding----I guess first language you learnt was basic and that was when you reached your sixth standard.
Me : Whatever?? I am a software engineer and i love it.
my mind: Okay but being a software engineer you are losing all what you loved .
Me : That's fine everybody makes compromises.
my mind: So you can compromise anything against your job.
Me: Depends -------------------
my mind: Depends as in?? You don't pick up your frnds call when you are busy.
Me: Frnds are okay. i call them when i am free.
my mind: How about your girl frnd ?? She's always waiting for your call .
Me: But she's the first one whom i call when i get free.
my mind : And you are free once in a day.
Me: ------------------------------(deep silence).
my mind: How about ur parents?? They are so alone now ...don't you miss them.
Me: yes i do.......
my mind: So last time you called them was .........yesterday.....or days back .
Me: (deep silence)
my mind: Lets talk about yourself. So you got a new guitar. Yamaha ESP cool
Me: yea its electric and looks so sexy.
my mind: yeaa but remember when you played it last time.
Me: (deep silence)
my mind :So its a waste of money. Your one month salary went into it.
Me: Ill play when i'll have time.
my mind: Okay you'll call your parents when you will be free. You'll play your guitar you'll have time. ...................................When ??
Me : When my project will get over.
my mind: Project..................(lolz). So your project will decide at what time you should do what.
Tell me one thing did your project decided at which school you should go, what dress you should wear, what you should eat, what you should do .
Me : What i didn't get you.
my mind: Is your project so important. Is it important than your parents.......or say your girl friend.
my mind: Dont seems so...
