Uncertainty is one of the many words that I hate. It’s not because I’m afraid of the future, it’s the fact that I’m afraid of the unknown. I believe, to some degree, everyone is afraid of the unknown. Why do we feel the fear when we wander into the… Continue reading Are You Afraid of Uncertainty?

This doesn’t seem too long ago when Microsoft felt like a disaster. I mean, don’t get me a wrong. They always held the largest market share in personal computing. But as we progressed towards a cloud-obsessed era of technology, Microsoft seemed to hit a wall, unsure of what its next step should be. Its cloud-based … Continue reading The Era of Microsoft Being Cool Starts Now!
CreepyPasta is quite possibly the largest source of user-generated stories of various kinds. However, reading a story can be both a terrible and an exciting experience depending on which story you’re reading. To help you decide what are some of the stories that are worth reading — and some that aren’t — I’m starting this series where I’ll briefly talk about a particular story without containing any spoiler.
I’m quite excited to kick off the series with a story that’s as fascinating, and dark as it gets. The story is titled Abandoned by Disney, The story gained so much popularity that the author started a series. I haven’t read the later stories of the series, but I will do so and write reviews here.
But first, a bit of context.
Disney is one of the few world-famous names that instantly make us remember some of the most iconic characters. Even after Disney and Pixar started working together, many characters have seen the light of day and found a place in our hearts. But the character that this particular story talks about is one of the most popular, most recognized, and most fun face in the history of Disney: Mickey Mouse.
It wasn’t until I played Call of Duty and Counter Strike Source with a few friends when I realized multiplayer was fun. However, my excitement was short-lived and I don’t play that often. Over the years, I’ve bought a few games on Steam that are playable with friends, but I never got around to playing them enough to improve my skill.

The weather condition in Bangladesh has been pretty weird for the last couple of weeks. From burning hot summer, the weather suddenly takes a surprising turn and it becomes all windy. Especially at nights, I’ve been noticing unusual wind pattern as I live in a tin-shed house. Winds start to blow much like tidal waves and between two waves of wind, there is pin-drop silence in the middle of the night. This led many of our tenants to wake up in the middle of the night and start wandering outsides in fear of something destructive.
And then there was today’s massive earthquake in Bangladesh, a 7.5 magnitude tremor (It was 7.9 in Nepal) in what could possibly be the longest earthquake this country has ever seen. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you see it), I was asleep when this happened and my mom woke me up. It didn’t take me too long to figure out what a massive tremor it has been as I signed into Facebook and Twitter. Continue reading “Earthquake in Bangladesh: Some People Need to Grow up”
