I Have Moved…

Dear All…

I have moved….from https://restlessprincess.wordpress.com to  http://shilpszzz.wordpress.com/….Yeah I know Restless Princess was nice….maybe even more appropriate for me….I am actually quite restless. but Random Thoughts at http://shilpszzz.wordpress.com/ is where I have moved to for now…

So why did I feel the need to move….??

Well I wanted to tell people to go check out my blog on my GSE experiences……but I was embarrassed to say it was restlessprincess.wordpress.com…thought is sounded too corny and immature….it is ok for someone who is 22 (yeah i know i did not start this blog at 22….but i felt 22 at that time!)….but not for someone who is  going to be 30 soon!!

Yeah man…I am getting old…!! and you know what…I am finally feeling it….:-( !! I guess…..reaching the number 3 has a psychological impact….OH MY GOD…that sounds SCARY….30!! I think tu write a post on that….I am sure lots of people will relate with me on that…but not now…..I still have 6 more months to enjoy the twenties!.

Okie people…back to the original purpose of the post….I am moving…..and all you people who read my blog…..and leave comments(the comments have been missing last few post..another thing i would like to write a post on and reflect!)…Please move WITH ME…and don’t MOVE AWAY!

Hope to see you at Random Thoughts  http://shilpszzz.wordpress.com/ … Till I move again!!

Cheers!

My Wish List of Features for Twitter!

I am one of those recent fans for twitter….well I am about 209 tweets old as of now….and for someone who is tweeting only form the web its not a very bad number…..what I love about twitter is that it is so easy and quick…micro blogging is a nice concept…I wonder how does one blog from the phone in India….the sms twitter service is not yet activated here right?
Here are some things that I think Twitter should consider
1. Have a spell check….I have always been lousy at spelling and using word…Lotus notes etc which automatically give me an alert telling me I have spelled something wrong has made me worse! Having a spell check atleast for people tweeting on the web should not be too difficult to incorporate..what say?
2. Have the facility to password protect tweets-Well ya it may seem to be against the concept of publishing a tweet….but there are chances I want to publish a tweet with my feelings deep inside which I want only me or my selected few friends to read…..what say….wont it be a good feature to have?
3. Have an option to classify/tag tweets- Like we do while blogging…it would be nice to be able to classify tweets under categories like books…feelings….movies……traffic etc…..look back and see relevant tweeps…It would be nice to see what people around the world are reading and tweeting about! What say?
Well that is it from me for now….let me know what you think of these potential add on features….also since I am quite a new bee on Twitter…let me know if some of this can already be done and I don’t know about!
And hey..I don’t know how features on twitter get built…..but I hope someone out there who can do something about it reads this!!
Till then…happy Twittering!!

New Blog Name…Again!!

Yes…I plan to change my blog name again….. this time I think I want to get to something gender neutral…

Here are the options that I have managed to block ( I tried so many none were available)…..any better idea’s are welcome! Subject to wordpress having the name available…cause I plan to stick to wordpress…I love their password protected post functionality!!

I personally like wordsetc the best… tell me what you people out there think!? Your opinion is important to me!

Too hot to write…!

Well sounds wired……but ya….my new excuse for not writing regularly is  …..

 

 “Its too hot to write”…and I hate getting all sweaty and icckky….ya..writing makes me sweat….now don’t get idea’s….and read on…

 

Its like I don’t have access to wordpress at work….and don’t have internet connection in a room which has air conditioning…..so to sit here and write and sweat it out under the fan when you know that heaven at 25 degrees Celsius across the door…becomes a little difficult…

 

Mumbai is already super hot…..to top it……we stay on the top floor and have the terrace right above our head which gets heated up during the day and transmits heat into the house once the sun goes down….so the room feels like an oven….and then the laptop generates heat….and overall it gets all too hot and  unbearable….

 

Now I know it is an excuse….and I can always take the laptop in the other room…write and then come out and post it…I can switch on my Wi-fi and use internet anywhere in the house ( btw…our wi-fi got packed and went into the box because of those damn terrorist attacks L)….or just simply bear the heat and write like I am writing now….

 

Its not that I have nothing to write…infact I have lots to write…..Goa trip…two books I finished reading..(I know lots of you don’t like reading my book reviews….but what the hell…I like them!) my new life in Rotaract….(finally getting active in the new club!)…Rodies vomit task and Natasha’s superb attitude in it….My first ever test drive of a car….Fiat Linea….and its review..(thumbs down for it in short)….My post which got 1,500 hits…. (yeah!cool na! I have a post which has crossed 1,500 hits within two/three months…the score today is 1650 hits to be precise…) and may more fun things like that….. J Like which phone to buy….Nokia…Supernova 7610….6600..Sony Erickson W595…!??

 

So now you people have a flavor of what you are missing because it is too hot to write!

 

(Hahahahah….I am sure you are thinking…thank God…its too hot to write…! ;-))

 

Anyways….done for my post for the day…..So I get out of this heat….into heaven….

 

Gn……….!
