There are some days when your hands just itch to write – and in my case itching to type. Yesterday my laptop crashed and the hard disk is not getting detected. The IT team says there is no way I can retrieve data easily unless I go for a full data recovery and no surety on that too. So all the posts that I used to save up in my draft folder or the long list of book reviews that I maintained are all gone! And so are the photos of the cooking that I had done and saved up for my cook blog. Now that’s really bad. And yes most of my work stuff also. I guess only safe place for storing data is the cloud drive, I should start using my cloud drive little more now.

So a laptop-less me spent half a day doing all random stuffs, playing candy crush, eating my colleague’s head and doing just about nothing, till I got my stand by system. I hope I get my original thinkpad soon, and get rid of this bulky one ASAP.

I was surfing this morning when I came across this where you take some random prediction test for some fun. I took one interesting sounding test for “Who were you in your Past life”. I had to chose some quirky answers from some multiple choices and guess what, the result was quirky enough – I was a Greek Philosopher it seems!! A philosopher who liked reading and writing and wanted to make the world a better place to stay!!! Okay too much philosophy in that one line.

After this I did some stupid tests and killed some time, till I got into this one prediction test – what genre of fiction should you write? Now isn’t that what I would like to see? Hell yeah I wanted to see, just for fun’s sake. And can you imagine what the result was??

See it for yourself.

 I was in fact in splits after reading this. I chose I like my characters to have dark secrets and like action and emotion and here it is I should write Horror.. hahah…. I like horror movies, but I am sure I’ll not write an out and out horror… 

I plan to write a lot of romance, or mystery or some sort of a thriller some day. Lets see..

    Were you Socrates or Plato in the earlier birth?Philosophers and horror stories sort ill with each other.
    Something fishy some where in the prediction about the past life.Horror stories is plausible. I am looking forward anxiously to the bone-chilling stories.
