Something I Use Every Day
Week 22 – Thankful Tuesdays
Looking back in time, I think one memory that comes to mind thinking of this prompt is my yearning for a computer. Most of my classmates had one, it was one of my favorite subjects and of course, I wanted to play FIFA on my own PC instead of my friend’s. It was my love for computers that led me down the path I took later. Now, a computer is one thing that I use on a daily I’m glad that I do, for it connects me to the world and takes me away from it too.
It has been nearly nine years since I first started blogging. Through this world that I found with the computer, I’ve found many friends who’ve pushed me to focus and improve my passion – writing. I’ve also done the same for those friends. I’ve owned and been a host of three memes – Haiku Heights, Acrostic Only and Thursday Tales (all three of which are not active now). But over the last few days, I’ve realized that I actually love to help write. And that the meme matters. So I’ve initiated a fourth one – A Prompt Each Day where I will put a prompt each day for those who need a bit of inspiration to break the block at times.
It’s really lovely when a friend who hasn’t met you understands your world and you better than most of those who are around you every day. Through blogging and social networks, I found a few such wonderful friends. Ishi, Jai, Winxy, Sarav, Ste, Renu… the list is quite long. I am sure my life wouldn’t be the same had they not been in it.
It feels odd to thank a computer, but it’s a little thing that brings the things that matter to me closer. So I’m glad that it is there and makes my life that much happier.
PS: Do check out A Prompt Each Day if you’re into memes. Who knows, inspiration might strike you when you need it!
