Finally, Yet another Milestone has been made in my Blogging yard. So again, it’s my time indeed to raise my bat and look far above in the sky to feel the brisk of this achievement.

It’s my 200th Blog Post in The Sweet Blog of Mine“Ash Bee Zone”. Starting from the end of  September 2010, and still running this end of the year 2012 , I’ve posted vivid Posts depicting my TalentsInterests, Opinions and Technical Knowledge. Got a lot of appreciation and bit criticism for my good, from many people over 2 years.

This time I was bit slower to complete a century. It took around more than 18 months since I’ve completed my last century. Due to my commitments in some urgent work, I was and still unable to balance my personal life with blogging. I therefore, apologize for not keeping my promises and retaining hiatus many times for a long time.

Thanks to all my Blogging mates (I still remember them and I often visit their blogs as well) who are more even experienced and remarkable than me in this field, like- Jingle, SiS, Olivia, Luke, Angela, Riika, Sophie, Emmanuel Ibok, Lynnaima. Ladynimue, Kellie Elmore, Shayla, Sam373, bodhirose, Tammy, Scent of my heart, Jamie Dedes, heather grace stewart, Sumit Sarkar, Tim, A.B. Thomas, fiveloaf, trisha, Dan Roberson, Luisask, The Reason You Come and others. Also, Thanking to all my Readers, who keep on visiting and probably getting something NEW from here. Without your support, I wouldn’t have given me so motivation and confidence to reach this Milestone.

Keep on visiting and supporting “Ash Bee Zone”, while I keep on Bringing something NEW for y’all and Never letting you down like I always promise .

Hopefully, I’ll reach 300 soon with all that love and appreciation.

 


The ‘Megadeth’ Graffiti Art


Hi Guys !!

As most of you guys know about The Big Four Bands of Thrash Metal. They have rocked the whole world for 30 years and still running wild. Plus, they are one of my Favorite Bands of all time.

big4stage-975x385

Now since the world might be at its end stage, so I’ve decided to make an Artwork Dedicated to one of those Legends as a Tribute like last week.

Well, This week is strongly dedicated to the Band called Megadeth. This is the band which I’m listening for some years from the day since I went to college. You already know through my previous post that what I used to listen back days when I was a school kid.

After Listening to Metallica a lot, I really got bored. That doesn’t means that I don’t wanna listen to their songs anymore. I wanted some more. I’d even downloaded their Latest album Death Magnetic, but I didn’t worked out very well. It wasn’t like their previous hardcore albums.

Now I really needed something else to listen from someone else. Then, I discovered ‘Megadeth’. This is the band which has some amazing guitar riffs and drums beats. Apart from those, their vocals is also the thing which makes them unique. Moreover, their front man Dave Mustaine used to be in ‘Metallica’, but was later kicked out from the band. And therefore, he formed his own band.

I still remember the moment when I first listened to their songHoly Wars .. The Punishment Due’ from their album ‘Rust in Pieces’. I really got so adrenalined and fascinated with this song as it was really so amazing. That long intro guitar solo was so Amazing. I head-banged a lot during that time. And besides, the lyrics were nice as it indeed tells the reality. In short, the song is Epic. Then I moved to more Megadeth songs like – Symphony of Destruction, Peace Sells .. But Who’s Buying?, A Tout Le Monde, Skin O’ My Teeth, Headcrusher, Public Enemy No. 1 and many more. Now, I am also a Megadeth Fan.A lot of verbal battles I’ve seen throughout the Internet between the fans of Metallica and Megadeth. But since I am unable to judge the best between them, I like both.

Coming back to my artwork. It’s just like what I’ve made previously. The Artwork of logo this legendary band has been drawn with Ball-point pen on an A4 Sheet, along with the names of their famous songs (around 50-60 I guess), written in (my personal favorite) Graffiti Tags.

Take a look on this collaboration fellas.

The ‘Metallica’ Graffiti Art


Hi Guys !!

As most of you guys know about The Big Four Bands of Thrash Metal. They have rocked the whole world for 30 years and still running wild. Plus, they are one of my Favorite Bands of all time.

original

Now since the world might be at its end stage, so I’ve decided to make an Artwork Dedicated to one of those Legends as a Tribute like last week.

Well, This week is strongly dedicated to the Band called Metallica. This is the first band which I’ve followed first when I was around 14. Before that, I’ve hardly known a little bit of rock songs that I’ve either listened on the Radio or watched its Video on MTV or even randomly from a Hollywood Movie or WWE, as the background score. Just few names like – AC/DC, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park and Bryan Adams, I was aware of them only. I used to get  some goosebumps those days (and still now sometimes) whenever I’ve listened to such heavy songs.  🙂

But Honestly speaking, I wouldn’t have discovered Metallica myself that time until my friend gave a complete CD pack of their songs. After looking around at my so-called choice in such music, he strongly recommended to listen to it like a True Metal Fan.

I still remember that Summer of year 2005, when I had my first desktop at home and got plenty of PC Games, from my dear friend. And after getting a complete collection of Metallica from my Metalhead friend, I’ve got a good shit to listen. I used to listen Linkin Park a lot, even before I had my PC. But still, I preferred to listen to Metallica more, just because it was so awesome. So Heavy, So Energetic. Simply Amazing. While listening to it, some people around me used to think that it is too Loud, Noisy, Mad, Arrogant, Violent and Anti-social, because Bollywood and Pop songs are the mainstream in India. But I hardly bothered and still I do.

I guess, 2005, it was indeed the year which had brought a change in me. And as soon as I got more versed with my PC and permission for Internet Connection from my Dad later in the year 2007, I’d explored more stuffs like this, which eventually had started changing me a lot in the knowledge of Music (specially Rock, and more precisely Metal) to a level where I am right now.

Well, this is my prolonging passion and addiction for Metallica and for other Rock Bands. Coming back to my artwork. It’s just so simple. The Artwork of logo this legendary band has been drawn with Ball-point pen on an A4 Sheet, along with the names of their famous songs (around 50-60 I guess), written in (my personal favorite) Graffiti Tags.

Take a look on this collaboration fellas.

Smart Steps to be Productive


You can’t deny with the fact that we’ve only 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week and 52 weeks in a year, neither less nor more. No matter what you do, you would probably gonna feel that you’ve less enough time to complete the tasks. But still successful people smartly manage their work complete within the given time. Mind the word ‘smart’ Fellas !! 🙂

There are plenty of ways to work more productively and efficiently, suggested by a lot of people throughout the world. The key behind all of these methods is to ‘work in time’. There’s only a need a Time-Management in your Life and you ought to maintain discipline and give some respect for that. Even some anonymous said nice words for Time, “If you gonna respect time, the time gonna respect you for sure”. So True! 😉

Lemme give y’all some tips to work productively and hopefully you keep them as habit.

1. Make A To-Do List

This is the primary method of scheduling your tasks. Simple! Make a ‘Daily To-Do List’ of all your upcoming tasks in an order and maintain discipline. Keep this list handy throughout the day and cross off those tasks which you’ve finished. This would make you productive and some satisfaction that your tasks are going properly.

2. Prioritize Your Tasks

Yet another important method. You should know which tasks are important and you should do them first. Of course, making priorities would help you enough to focus on the things. Just in case you’ve forgotten, you could make a list of all your tasks and give them ratings on the basis of their priorities to be done.

3. Set Deadline For Every Task

I’ve mentioned a quote on respecting the time and I meant that seriously. There’s just something about deadlines that makes you thrive. Set an appropriate deadline and try to finish them sooner, otherwise you’ll start procrastinate the task and further delay would cost you for other tasks waiting in queue. Make a reminder in your Diary or Cell phones, about deadlines, so that you’ll get to know about your tasks’ deadlines.

4. Keep Your Workspace Clean

Not only for cleaning concern, but also for productive cause you must keep your workspace. It often happens we waste couple of time in searching important files, documents and our belongings. Same case happens while working in a computer or laptop. Make your space clean enough such that all our belongings are visible. You could even prioritize among them. Let say, which items should be place above the desk or under the desk.

5. Plan Phone Calls

Some times even calling or taking calls in the middle of something, breaks the momentum and can derail the productive project. Kindly avoid such situations. Set a time zone in which you’re free for a while and make calling habits of those you’re trying to reach. You can’t always be rigid as some important emergency calls might come. Still try your best to reduce to some extent. Even you could notify to your callers to contact when you’re available to talk. And as a good manner, you must return all calls by the end of your task.

6. Set Your Own Working Time Zone

Everyone has different energy cycles and time zones of working. Some are night owls, who could world all night. While others are the morning persons. Even you also have the ability and stamina to work on either the time zones. Analyze your strength on which particular time zone you work most because that’s the time when you’ll be at your best.

7. Take Breaks For A While

It has been proven a lot of times that working continuously for long hours, makes you less productive as your energy deteriorates. Take some break after working for hours, have some food, listen to music, or take a little rest. But take breaks for few minutes, otherwise you’ll lose the momentum and further delay in the assignment.

8. Avoid Website Distractions

In the modern era of Social Networking, we spent a lot of time in tweeting, mailing, blogging or just simply chatting with people. Even if you’ve some important work to do, you get into it. Sometimes, we check our e-mail a lot of time in a day. The reason is that we get addicted to it. These are the distractions and seriously a waste of time. Avoid them. Reduce your time span in website. Check your emails once or twice a day. You could even set bookmarks in case you’re visiting some important websites very often, rather finding them again and again.

There are plenty of other tips being discussed in the web. But the main aim is getting more productive and working efficiently in limited time. They would take some time to be a regular habit and it’s always work in progress. The good news is if you start focus on applying new tools and techniques in your life. Hopefully, you’ll be succeeded.


The ‘B-ves’ of My Life (Day 8 Of Truth)



The following Post is for accomplishing Creative Challenge called 30 Days of Truth, given by Kellie Elmore. It is a unique exercise in self exploration and learning to be honest with yourself… and that ultimately leads to happiness.

30 Days of Truth

*****************************************************************************************

In the World of Ying-Yang, if you have some odds in favor then definitely there would be some odds against you as well. Taking an example of Blood Groups, an A never matches with a B. And there’s the same kind of situation with my Life as well. Myself (A) never, ever gonna deal with them (B’s). Since my Blood Group is ‘A positive’ (A+ve), so I call them ‘B negatives’ (B-ve).

Totally Opposite!! 😛

Confused? I think you would be. But the following types of people with whom I’ve met so far, have made my Life annoying and miserable enough to categorize them like this.

1. BULLIES with Power

That’s an obvious nightmare for the Good Boys when they have to encounter these Chauvinist Bad Boys, mostly in School days. My Childhood was Simple, Peaceful, Study-Focused and away from Fist Fights. It’s a good thing for your teachers and parents, but not for the Bullies. They just hate you for no reasons. I have been imitated by them a lot. Even sometimes I was humiliated as well in Class by them. It’s not so easy to fight back for your own dignity at that time. First of all, they all come together to tease you and so, you’re all alone. Secondly, they’ll take you down easily even if you try to fight back, as they are stronger than you. That’s why they are Bullies, obsessed with Power and Strength. And lastly, you always remember the morals that your teachers and parents taught. Nobody wants to get their hands dirty.

I’ve lost a lot of times. But when the threshold of tolerance and patience gets over the limit, I’ve settled the score in a duel, for which I regretted a lot afterward as I never wanted to be like them. But sometimes, you have to do for getting your respect back.

Anyways, now when I look them after 5-6 years, they don’t seem like what they used to appear when I was kid. Not Bullies anymore, but not even my Friends. 😛

However, Bullies keep changing, but they will always come in your Life. Some of my College Seniors are just like them. Sometimes, they just keep trying to tease me on my appearances. But I don’t mess with them as I’m now matured and experienced of tolerating this thing. This Seniority SHIT would even be present during my Job days as well.

2. BORES without Life

Some people really need to have a Life as they stalk on others’ Life for every GOD DAMN moment. It’s kinda trespassing someone’s privacy. The same things have been experienced by me. I’ve encountered a lot of people who either kept asking questions about me and my Life or started giving me useless suggestions as if they know me well. I’m not saying that, they don’t have right to advice me, but please stop giving useless advices when they even don’t know the circumstances of my situations. It’s intolerable and irritating.

However, I have few good friends to whom I’ve told almost about myself, my ambitions and even shared some of my grieves. But don’t and never discuss with many as people hardly understand you. They would get sympathize at that time, but in the end they all forget and treat you like normal. Even I don’t need any sympathy and publicity for myself. As I’d rather get treated equally than being hurt.

Plus, some people keep on criticizing me for being a Facebook alcoholic. They think I’m wasting my Time on there. But the fact they don’t know that though I’m kinda introvert in reality, but highly extrovert in Social Networking Sites. I mean, who doesn’t? People would like to get rid of their boring life and have fun in Facebook. Even I like to interact with my Net Friends and so, I have a Social Life.

But still these morons presume such shitty perceptions that used to piss me off. However, now I really don’t care as they keep boring me with those same ole responses.

3. BASTARDS with Ego

Now-a-days, everybody has its own Ego. And the moment gets when the Ego clashes out of nowhere. Personally, I can’t stand with such people who have a lot of ego and pride for their own so-called specialty. It’s good that they have such specialty in themselves, but that doesn’t means that they have right to flaunt everywhere especially to them who don’t have any. Still I bear their rants most of times. But when the breaking point of my patience and tolerance has reaches, I bashed in a battle for the sake of my dignity and respect.

They just tried to take me down, proving me wrong as well and therefore, proving that they are the best while I’m wrong. Bastards! 😛

4. BITCHES with Everything!

These days, people are so multi-tasking. Seriously man! I won’t be able to find out how they all do that. But since some of them get just because though comforts and being fortunate, I sometimes get jealous with them.

I’m a college guy and I’ve seen plenty of guys around me who are phenomenal apart from their academic scores. Obviously, they are exceptional and fortunate to get the success soon. It’s their headache to mingle with various tasks, which they do remarkably well.

Overall, I still respect these ‘Supernaturals’ as token of inspiration. But Honestly, I’m not like them. Since I’ve got a BIG competition in my college, I’ve been defeated a lot and I admit it though I gave my 100%. But my point of view would be considered as Lame Excuses as My people don’t understand me at all. They’ll still compare their (the multi-task performers’) triumphs with my failures and even expect me to like them. That really makes me SICK as in spite of getting some support and a little appreciation of my efforts, I get taunts of not being extra-ordinary.

I’m not like them and never want to be like them. If I’m trying to pretend to be like them, then I’ll definitely lose my own identity. Plus, the thing I believe, as someone told me once that “If you’re trying everything, then you would not be Master of Anything. But if you’re trying something, then you’re definitely the Master of that Thing.” I still makes me amazed why people do 10 things even if they know they hardly 1-2 would be useful in their future.  Most of my College Toppers and even some of my Tech-minded Seniors would still try to think for MBA. Even in the vast Technical Lines, people would mug 10-20 different topics like nuts. Maybe just to prove the world that they are super-intelligent and smart.

Actually, this is where our Education System lacks. We are taught 10-20 different topics and sometimes even useless subjects out of our interests. Plus, you get a crappy out of the format Question Papers in the Examinations, which would make you mad. Of course, the Engineering Life in College gonna SUCK !! Those Hard-ass Supernatural bitches would mug up and achieve higher grades in Examinations. And Dumb-asses like me, having interests on certain topics would be screwed and be ranted with humiliation for whole Life. And therefore with or without any intentions, they have made my Life miserable.

Sometimes I get so depressed from such dilemma for a long time. But still I wake up in the morning in an optimistic  hope that things would be change. But Changes never come on their own, they are being brought. If these B-ves of my Life quit annoying the A+ves like me, then we’ll definitely gonna have a better place to Live. Hopefully, that day comes sooner. 🙂
