Take a Chill Pill!

" When life gives you lemons...... make lemonade "

This simple, age old saying indicates that you can make the best of what you're given.
It is entirely in your hands.
(You can even sell the lemons on e-bay or squirt the lemon juice in life's eye!)
You are the deciding authority on your life. You can chose to be happy or sad, but only YOU can control it.
Never allow any external circumstance to control you. The power to self control lies within you!

Don't let worries or problems overwhelm you. You have one life after all and you might as well live it to the fullest. (unless you believe in life after death!)

The Joy of Reading

" Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers." 
                                                                                                 -Charles W. Eliot

There are some things in life that I enjoy doing and one of them is 'reading'. 

Reading is an activity that can offer both information and pleasure. But it depends entirely on what you read.
If you read useless and trashy stuff, then you wouldn't benefit from reading.
However, if you read books of value, it is an entirely different story altogether.

If you have been reading for a long time now, you would know that benefits would always come to those who read, as long as they read the right stuff. In some cases the person may not be consciously aware of the advantages, but he/she will definitely realize them in the long run.

"The art of reading is in great part that of acquiring a better understanding of life from one's encounter with it in a book."  
                                                                       -AndrĂ© Maurois

For those of you who are averse to reading, I'm now going to list a few (out of many) benefits of reading. This is a small attempt on my part to get you folks to join the reading bandwagon.
Here goes:

Potter Mania Strikes Again! (Movie Review)

Movie : Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows  (Part 1)
Starring : Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint , Ralph Fiennes
Direction : David Yates
Soundtrack : Alexandre Desplat

Based on the novel by J.K Rowling, the 'Harry Potter' series of movies has received universal acclaim. These movies are enjoyed by both fans and the rest alike! But for a person to fully understand the movies, it is crucial that he/she reads the books beforehand. Also, the previous  movies haven't done complete justice to the books.
Personally, as a Harry Potter fan I recommend that you read atleast one book to experience the magic ( if you haven't read any of the books)

The main characters

Harry Potter - Daniel Radcliffe
Ron Weasley - Rupert Grint
Hermione Granger - Emma Watson
Voldemort- Ralph Fiennes

The plot 

The trio (Harry Ron and Hermione) have to find and destroy Horcruxes, which are the source of Voldemort's  immortality. But there are a lot of obstacles that they have to overcome while doing so. 
First of all they do not have any idea how to do so except a few clues and their own instincts to guide them.

A Typical Week

Ask any random employed person on this earth and this is the reply you will get about his/her typical week

Monday :  It begins on a dull note. The weekend has just gone by and I've got to drag myself to work. Monday morning blues are sky high. I go through my daily work tasks like a zombie. I'm sleepy and tired

Tuesday : Anger slowly begins to rear its ugly head. I'm irritated as I accomplish my daily quota of work. I haven't entirely recovered from the weekend mode but I try hard to come back to work mode .

Wednesday : My anger touches the roof. I am in a VERY BAD mood and I feel need to have a "Danger" sign on my forehead to prevent people from being the target of my explodable emotions.
