Good day and thanks for stopping by :)
For a guy, whose life depends on internet (being a freelance writer and all), last few days of the month can be really frustrating. My unlimited internet plan, which sheds the speed dramatically crossing the 10 GB mark, is usually that way for the last two or three days. The pack renews on 1 st of every month leaving me to deal with the creepy connection. Although I vow every end of the month to download lesser software, songs and games, it’s the same story every time. This time though I discovered how slow internet connection can be fun in some ways.
2. Chores and Other Stuff
Fast internet connections are like salesmen. They’ll sell you things you might never need and by selling here, I mean downloading. Stupid Animal Who Imitates His Parent, One Finger Pushups and other videos of the sort. I even have 15 themes for my browser. But, but, but a slow connection gives me hours to complete a download. I can clean my room, make something to eat or even take doggie for a walk with chances that it’ll still be downloading.
3. Increases Productivity
Online grocery shopping is quite on a rage these days in most of the countries. For smarter moms, it is one of the best ways to find products that their children would love. However this is not the only reason why you should be buying your kitchen supplies online. In fact, there is a long list to why you should; here we are going to discuss some of them.
'Hypothetically, if the only choice you've got is to do the wrong thing, then it's not really the *wrong* thing, is it? It's more like fate.'
'Vlad, it's never that easy.'
'Of course, we agree to disagree.'
No matter, what choices you make what things you do and what rewards you want, everything is written, decided and destined to happen. This is what I understand of fate. Although I don't personally believe in it (or maybe I do sometimes), fate is really an important part of our lives. It affects how people think, see and perceive situations. I guess luck can be a factor, you are lucky sometimes but isn't fate a totally absurd term? They say god has a book and he/she has written everything in advance (I have nothing against gods) or some polite ones will say that the journeys are not written only the destinations are. How philosophical is that?
Interestingly, almost all religions support that. The bad thing is that even Shakespeare has supported it with the best lines written in English literature.
"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances."
If I am not wrong then it means that entries and exits are preordained and you have a specific role to play. A part chosen by GODS, DESTINY or whatever, so if I choose to do the wrong thing then it will not be actually the 'wrong thing'. It is my fate. Okay, so now that the theory is crystal clear, let's come to the practical part. Some certain bloody things, including love, longingness, jealousy, sympathy, anger, faith and others are always there to screw things up. No matter, how many times they tell us that it was all gods' plan, the pain won't just go. There'll always be that emotion to do things that you want, to love people, to choose between right and wrong. Things would have been much easier if we knew what gods want. May be it helps to accept the fact that gods are looking over us and leaving things to them, maybe it's the same feeling like having parents at home and maybe it gives strength to people but things can turn really nasty if this situation overturns and people start thinking that gods want us to lose.
There'll always be people who believe in fate and people who don't. However, if you do believe in fate and it seems like gods have written everything against you then there's a line from a Gladiator.
'I know that I cannot win over those fierce creatures but I am here to entertain and believe me, I will not go down without putting up a great show.'
*Opening dialogues from Max Payne 2 and "All the world's a stage" from William Shakespeare's As You Like It.

The term 'organic food' has gained high popularity in the recent years. People are even happy to shell out more for food tagged as organic. But what the concept is all about and what are the benefits of organic foods?
Today you can find the organic version of almost anything. Originally, the term was used for fruits and vegetables grown at home or a neighbourhood farm. Slowly this concept gained popularity and now there are many certified organic food production houses dedicated to grow the healthier version of food. Even organic version of eggs, meats and dairy products is also available. Organic foods are preferred by the people for following reasons.
No synthetic pesticides
Certified organic food producers see to it that no harmful pesticide is used while growing the fruits and vegetables. However, if pesticide has to be used, it is natural and without harmful chemicals. This is something that is not taken care of in most of the commercially grown foods.
According to the Organic Consumers Association, chemical pesticides reduce the flavonoids in fruits and vegetables. These are antioxidants also known to fight cancer cells and to boost immunity. Therefore, organic foods have better levels of flavonoids strengthening the immunity system.
Most of the people don't even know that commercial producers inject animals with synthetic hormones for more meat, milk and egg. This way the animals grow quickly and production rate increases dramatically. But some part of these hormones stays in the meat or milk when you use it. However, organic foods are free of any such harmful chemicals.
Fresh and Seasonal
The organic food is always fresh and grown according to the seasons. You won't find something that is cold stored for months and then shipped from other continents to your plate. If you are buying organic food, it will be from a local farm.
Organic foods are actually better for everyone. With the above mentioned benefits of organic foods, these are environment friendly and are highly nutritious. Everything that comes in the chain of organic food is benefited from it, be it the consumer, producer or Mother Nature.
