My habit of reading started when I was about 10. My father used to bring Young Times, which was a weekly magazine for kids and teens. Then we subscribed to it and I used to get excited every Tuesday picking it up from my door mat. I remember I used to prefer reading stories that used to be published in YT rather than story books at my school library. During my teens many of my articles and poems were published in YT. One of the poems are even published at this blog, titled “A Silent Cry’. I once wrote an article after I got to know a student killed himself after he failed in his class. So I wrote about how students should have hope and dying isn’t really a way out. It was well appreciated by my English teacher, Mam Norma. (Due to reasons unknown (perhaps recession in 2009?) Young Times was stopped being published. I still miss it!)

Recently I read a post on the blog positiveprovocations.com about heart centered blogging. Since I too have started a blog I was interested as to what it’s writer, Zeenat, had to say. Overall what she meant was that instead of writing a blog mainly for the purpose of money we should focus on writing what interests us and then consider the financial part. Because if what we write comes from the heart, has to be interesting.

Her article gave me some kind of perspective about what I could write here. 

Since I have grown up reading magazines like Young Times, Young World (in Pakistan) , Campus Journal (used to be published by university students back in U.A.E.), Teens magazine (in Pakistan), Readers’  Digest etc, I still prefer reading magazines to books. I would also want to publish my own magazine someday. I haven’t really planned anything about it, though. I usually write when I feel like and when I am free because firstly I am an accountancy student so there are other deadlines to meet too.

I want to share a couple of websites that students across the globe may find useful:

http://www.freevideolectures.com  My sir told me about this site in class. He said it’s for people who like to learn. The lectures are of really good standard and quality. I usually watch the workshop or presentations related to Entrepreneurship from Stanford University, but there are many other subjects too.

http://www.opentuition.com (specially for accounting students).
