I used to blog a lot, not caring if people actually read what I wrote, but it was the mental satisfaction that kept me from stopping. Why haven’t I written for over a year now, you ask? Well let’s just say I became lazy and did something terrible. I got my room mates Parth and Abidaan to play Dota, yep that was when all hell broke loose at home! We play for hours and hours everyday and each time I see how enthusiastic they are about Dota it makes me shed tears of joy and simultaneously a feeling of guilt creeps up. These guys had a life beyond computers, they used to have fun observing nature, talking to real people. Now the moment we are bored it’s either dota games or they end up watching videos online about the various gameplay hacks and so on. Did I stop there? No I did not, I pulled in Sushil and Aniket into the blackhole too! We are now officially 5 average dota players who do nothing but game all day all night. Today is one of those days when we aren’t playing and I thought why not, let me get back to maintaining my blog!
Actually that was a lie, I moved my blog out from wordpress to a vps on DigitalOcean and had no idea how to get my email and blog running at the sametime. Oh all this because I moved out my domain manager from wordpress (which engineer does this :/, self disgust) to google domains and then all hell broke loose. Anyway some online searching couple with patience got me back on my feet, or should I say got my blog back on my feet. I currently have the blog on blog.aadityasriram.com and plan to have a self designed (i’m lying, i’m looking for help) online resume on aadityasriram.com. For now both point to the wordpress blog. WordPress is great for managing your rants and posts, it makes things really easy to manage and gives all the basic social tools that you need to make your writings presentable. Its awesome to be a student, I get free credits on every major SaaS or PaaS vendor out there, DigitalOcean included! I have my blog hosted for free, got the student pack from Github and its got a lot of other stuff too! Check that out.
I had no real idea about what I’d write when I began this post but looks like i’ve written a lot already. Last 1 year has been all about being in a whole new country and thankfully I got great roommates who share the same sense of cleanliness as me, most people are surprised at how clean our house is! Most of my daily schedule revolved around either cooking or eating, but over the last 2 months gym has been factored in! Study you ask? Yeah good question, I shall get back to that sometime, I guess. I’ve got a new desktop, and yes I shall definitely have a blog post about that. I guess that’s all for my comeback post Hope to keep writing regularly going forward Cheers!
