New Person, Same Old Mistakes

In the age of change being so rapid and constantly inevitable, we are bound to face the unexpected. Sooner or later, everyone has to be ready for what we might not be prepared. The current pandemic is one such great example for things unexpected. But, the examples we need to be looking at right now are not the unexpected. That is already happening. There are examples of people challenging this change on their own terms and living like it barely causes any devastating effects on their life. I am trying to be them by keeping up with my work on blog and the assignments at college. The latter seems to bring disinterest at first, but clearly takes off once I start doing it.

Keeping myself close to work makes me realise of the things I have never come across. I still don’t know how to deal with syllables. I don’t know the spelling of words like syllables. Randomly pick one from college, I don’t know how Computer Vision works. But, these realizations are only because I know a few things at first. Otherwise, why would anyone want to learn at all?

It gets tiring and even tedious to keep writing daily on the blog. I had stupidly dreamy goals of doing it before lock-down. It is only safe to say that without this lock-down, I could have been easily distracted. Only because of lock-down, I am able to try new things on a daily basis. And, stick to a few of them. I wish to stick to the lessons learnt during the lock-down.

Looking back at these “new” endeavors of mine, I have done these many times before. And, only trying seems to be the ultimate meaning any endeavor might have.

The world keeps changing, and the universe seems to justify the changes.

  1. There is a term in the Japanese Martial Arts -specifically Iaido- Enzen no Metuke – to gaze not the mountains. We are supposed to watching carefully without specific concentration on only one thing. Because change can come from anywhere, not just what we choose to concentrate on. Nice post. Thanks!

    1. Amazing what Japan teaches the modern world. I recommend reading Ikigai, if you haven’t already. Kind words, Lou. Thank you!


  2. Syllable etymology – sullable comes from Greek su (together) and labanein (take). I like journey of words. Of course that’s Google 🙂
    Nice post

    1. Me too. I like to get surprised at their origin, most of the words we use now. Also, it’s interesting to know that the words we use now will change dramatically in the future. New words, same old language!


        1. Yeah, I am doing a fictional series on Medium. In the post after next one, I’ll be linking to it. Episode four of Koocha.
