I cannot believe I’ve been in such a long hiatus from the blog… this has almost never happened before.This is probably what happens when your main hobby becomes your main career.
A few years back, when I started sidcorner, I had so much buzzing inside my head about Sid and wanted to record those experiences somewhere. Since I loved writing, it seemed like a natural choice. At that point, I never imagined I’d become a full-time writer one day. Two years back, I quit my IT job and started exploring the world of writing. Today, I have atleast written enough to introduce myself as a writer. I really think sidcorner had a huge role in this shift in profession. The more I wrote I realized a different side of me or rather a side that had been lying dormant for many years.
Anyway, this blog is about Sid and hence me, and not me. But I felt like I owed an explanation for the break. Hopefully, I can continue to come back here.
Latest updates: Sid is now a weird mix of a kid and a grown-up. He talks like a grown-up but does such silly things sometimes, maybe just to remind me he is a kid. He even had his first set of ‘official’ exams at school, where he was supposed to read a complete 1 hour paper and write the answers. It was one of those moments when I felt sorry for him and all, but seeing how he just chills around, I felt okay. The other day we were doing an online math test, which is a part of his regular home study. So, after every right answer, the computer would say something like fabulous or dazzling or smashing.. after a couple of questions, I saw him marking a wrong answer and told him that it’s wrong.. ‘You already know? Then, why did you do it?’ I ask. ‘I just wanted to see what the computer would say for a wrong answer!’
Yeah, he is that kind of guy 🙂 Sometimes you’re so proud and relieved that the child did not take after you.
